An exceptionally revelatory and transformational course

This has been an exceptionally revelatory and transformational course. The combination of theory and practice for each topic is a powerful tool to delve really deep into one’s psychological and psychic make -up and to access and understand all different part of ourselves.The course offers also a new framework to connect with the cards and to access their messages. All is held together and made even more meaningful by Emma’s incredible guidance and insight. Structurally, the course is gently paced but manages nonetheless to cover an exceptional amount of topics to great depth. I feel very inspire, grounded and empowered by the techniques that I have learnt and they have greatly enriched my personal development work.

Emma is a master teacher.

Emma is a master teacher. I have just completed the Independent Advanced Course 2 and am just staggered by the amount of material we covered in such a comprehensive and thorough fashion. It could have been very daunting and intimidating but rather, with Emma’s compassionate nature and vast knowledge it was totally thrilling. My understanding of the Thoth Tarot deck is now many faceted. We looked at Numerology, the Kabbalah, Astrology, Life Path, Relationships and Past Life readings. Who would have thought this deck carried so much information? I have come to the end of the course having gained a whole new respect for these incredible cards. The journey will continue but now I feel I have gained confidence and understanding in a way that I never thought possible. Thank you Emma for such a life changing experience.

The beginning of a great journey thanks to Emma

Emma Sunerton-Burl is a fabulous teacher. I have just completed her Independent Initial Thoth Course 5 and it was everything I could have asked for and more. Emma is a very gracious, knowledgeable and sensitive tutor. That being said, she demands a lot and is persistent. Her feed-back is incredible. I gained knowledge of reading techniques, ways to access intuition and visualization, advice about how to get started reading for the public and, through it all, so much information about the cards themselves. What a wonderful experience. I encourage anyone who is inclined to sign up for this course. It is so worth the effort! Carolyn

Tarot Mentoring

I have just had my first mentoring session with Emma and I am sure it will be the first of many. Emma was able to help me to gain an understanding of what I needed to do to move my dream of running my own tarot business forwards. It was full of very useful advice from a woman who has been through of all the hurdles it takes to make it in the world as a professional tarot reader. Even after just one session I already feel more confident in moving things forward.

Having just completed the Initial Thoth training, I would like to express my deep gratitude to Emma, for guiding me into developing a relationship with the Thoth Tarot.
It has been no less than a life changing experience on so many levels, and I do not say this lightly.
The experience has brought into clear focus, many of the issues that I have struggled with, both in my own personal development, and also in my day to day life. It is like someone finally turned the lights on, so that I could see where I was going, after years and years of struggling in the darkness.
I think to appreciate this course fully, and to get the most out of it, one should be prepared to change, for change you surely will. I have also, of course deepened my knowledge of the Tarot, and gained the confidence to read for other people. I have also developed a profound relationship with the cards through daily visualizations and guided meditations, both of which have left me feeling clear, positive and composed. I cannot recommend this course enough, for those who wish to embark on a journey that they may never forget.

I have now done three Thoth Tarot training courses with Emma; the Introductory course, the Beginners Course and the Advanced course. I have loved every one.

Emma has taken me on a journey of self exploration, higher awakening and opened my eyes up to the infinite possibilities that the cards offer.

She has been an amazing online teacher; always there if you need something explaining, patient, understanding, very knowledgable about the cards, extremely professional and passionate about the Thoth.

I have learnt so much from her, things I never knew were even possible or within my reach. I have grown as a person through doing these courses and feel empowered to help others now too. Emma has helped me gain this confidence and the cards have shown me that it is possible and within my reach.

I shall return to Emma again for further training.

Thank you so much and trust in Emma to show you the way too.

In case you are wondering whether you should or should not take the journey of deepening yourself in the Thoth deck, I would suggest you to sit with the question whether you find yourself really ready to get to know yourself; ready to let go of limiting patterns, ready to open up to some hidden beauty within? There is, of course, always the choice to keep on hiding or running away. I would not recommend that option; it only increases fear, pain, stuck-ness, anger and self-pity. On the other hand, there is the option of freedom, inner peace, empowerment, joy and the capacity to face life’s challenges with dignity, an open mind and a tender heart. In case that is what you are aiming for, I can highly recommend you to take the leap and throw yourself into the depths of your own being while being held, guided, provoked, questioned and inspired by the Thoth images and be open to the inner (and outer) journey they can elicit. Each of the images is en expression of you and I and the moment we can embrace that and own that, we can truly embrace that what we are and start living a full life. Whether you want to use the cards for self-development or to work with others; the first step is to get to love and own the images as if they were a part of you.
And in a very professional and clear structured and sensible sequence, with so much care, knowledge and love Emma will be present; all the time ready to challenge when necessary, to hold when you feel falling, to let go when you are ready to fly, all the while just very gently sending you her blessings. Growing is a necessity, making the leap an option. In this case, it is safe and highly recommendable to opt!

I have studied with Emma for three years now, in both her online courses and one to one mentoring. All have been brilliant, illuminating experiences.

As I wanted to further my understanding of tarot, in particular its background and evolvement, she kindly designed a course for me – History and Symbolism in Tarot.

I completed it last week and it has been not just edifying but has completely changed my attitude and approach to my readings and tarot in general.

I understand Emma may be offering this course in the near future and I would urge you to consider it if you enjoy an academic challenge and I can assure you it will not only enrich your knowledge base but give even more depth to your readings.

I recently completed the Initial Thoth course which has been amazing – in fact nothing short of transformative. Emma is very gifted and goes to great lengths in providing detailed guidance and encouragement throughout all of the exercises, many of which involved inner searching in some depth. This course for me was like a voyage of self discovery and my trust in the cards and also in my own abilities has soared. I did not imagine before I started the course that I would be able to read for others, but my doubts soon dissipated. I would thoroughly recommend this course. 🙂

Having just completed the ‘Absolute Beginners In Tarot Module’ I will, without any hesitation, wholly recommend this three week course!

You are gently introduced to the world of the Thoth Tarot which is not nearly as forbidding or ‘not for the beginner’ as some reviewers/commentators would have you believe.

Emma’s skilful, generous teaching and support leads you through the fundamentals in a gentle, intuitive way and gives you a wonderful basic grounding in this alluring, deep and mysterious deck.

Thank you again Emma!

Developing your Intuition

In my search to become a better Tarot reader I have experienced more than one tutor, or mentor. I can only say Emma is the best, kind, considerate and very skilled. I would recommend this course to any one who wishes to make a positive move forward.

I’m astounded by how much I’ve learned in the three-week Absolute Beginner course. The exercises I was assigned wisely encouraged me to interact deeply with the cards on a daily basis and to journal about them. I am learning to look more closely at a card to see the many, many things that are not so obvious at first glance, and to feel into what it says to me. I have had numerous decks over the years and enjoyed playing with them but this one has captured my heart like no other, and it’s the first time I’ve wanted to learn much more about a deck and how to use it.
 
Emma is a very sweet guide who validated my intuition while at the same time pointing things out that I hadn’t seen or thought about. She was very generous with her comments and time and is clearly an adept. The exercises pushed against my comfort zone to help free me to more readily trust my intuition and speak up. What was reinforced is that it really is trustworthy.
 
I don’t see how you can spend only two hours a week on the exercises but I also know I did more than was required by the curriculum, simply because I’m on fire with learning at the moment!
 
If you really are a beginner like me, this course is a great place to start. Even if you have used other decks, this one is so unique that you might want to unlearn what you knew before and start fresh!
 
Two thumbs up!

Emma is highly recommended for those starting a professional tarot and coaching business. I’ve just started my new venture and find my monthly sessions with Emma have helped me not only take the leap to start my business but take leaps and bounds in my development. From improving my communication skills to ensure I exercise compassion and values based action with my clients at all times, to making significant progress to develop my psychic skills, to being a great reflector to help me overcome the practical challenges of running my business because she’s been there and done it!! Most of all it’s reassuring to have her on the end of the phone supporting me because those first courageous steps can be a bit daunting! Thank you Emma!! X

I have just completed the Initial Thoth course. Wow what a personal transformation that Emma’s course has inspired. The personal development has enabled me to let go of a job that was draining me. It’s given me the confidence to leave and set up my own company so I can truly follow my calling. I feel that my life is more balanced and I’ve reset my priorities, even more so as by the end of course I also discovered that I’m expecting a child. Blossomings all round!! Thanks Emma for being a fabulous guide!

“Initial Thoth Course: I only started learning the Thoth Tarot at the start of the year and now having finished this course wonder where they have been all my life! My own understanding of the Thoth, and intuition, have been greatly enhanced through this course, and this has been in no small measure down to the dedication, expertise, not to mention the incredible intuitive guidance that I have received from Emma. I cannot recommend Emma high enough, and for anyone who is drawn to the Thoth and is looking for guidance and teachings, then as far as I am concerned then you should look no further than Emma. “

“* How would you improve the course?Absolutely cannot think of anything….I know money isn’t everything but I certainly put in more than 2 hours a week (probably more like 7) because I wanted to and I got so much value back. I never anticipated this much inner development and support. I’m thinking the only improvement would be to charge more to reflect the value – at least 16 weeks x £20! “

“When I discovered that I could both stay at the Snowdonia Retreat and meet with Emma for individual Thoth tarot training, I knew it was going to be a very special break for me. My experience surpassed my expectations; Fron Goch is such a peaceful and healing retreat in the heart of Snowdonia and a perfect setting to either be introduced to or to deepen your relationship with the beautiful and enigmatic Thoth tarot deck. Emma Prepared a structured approach to our two meetings whilst I stayed at Fron Goch, and her deep feeling for and experience of the cards was coupled with an exuberant and enthusiastic approach which made it fun as well as meaningful for me. I will never forget my experience at Fron Goch with Emma and the Thoth Tarot, and every time I hold the deck now I remember a very positive and enjoyable time which has created for me an enduring affection for the Thoth tarot.”

“I have thoroughly enjoyed this course which has covered a broad range of interesting and relevant topics relevant to the Tarot. The programme of work and the supervision has been of a very high quality and one feels that one has therefore achieved something very worthwhile. It has also opened many doors to further study for me. As with the first Thoth course this one has given me greater confidence and a knowledge base to be proud of. Thank you Emma and Semele, I owe much gratitude to you both for what you have given me; which enables me to do my job to a higher standard than I could have achieved otherwise. I would happily recommend your courses to anyone interested in Tarot including those who work as tarot professionals.”

I felt it was about the right level though I did feel that the other ladies were further advanced than me but it was interesting reading their views and ideas in regard to the topics.

“Emma, I just want to say a huge thank you for your Further Thoth Course. Although I was unable to complete the final exercises, due to my awful time management (not yours!), I found what I did do immensely stimulating. This course opened the door to the depth and the fascination that are to be found in Thoth, and in the words of the ad, ‘I didn’t know there was so much in it’, til I started working with you and my fellow students. I also wanted to say how much I appreciated your sensitivity and insight when we were working in depth on some real personal issues. A really great learning experience, thanks so much!!!”

“I love that Emma and Semele coped well with our vastly varying levels of expertise and understanding of the Thoth deck, the Tarot generally and various related subjects such as Kabbalah, Numerology, Astrology, etc. It was great to see the sharing and learning within the group. Thank you. The consolidation weeks were a godsend. I loved them and loved the fact that it gave me chance to review my work, other people’s work and to really absorb the learning. In my view they are invaluable. I’d even go so far as to say they are vital to understanding the new work. Too many times I have attended training sessions which have thrown lots of information at me without allowing time for it to “”land””. This was different and my knowledge, understanding and appreciation for the Thoth Tarot have grown as a direct result of these consolidation weeks. They allow time to integrate and use the learning. This course has been amazing and I have loved every minute of it. I know that I will be going back over my note to pick out new levels of learning and that will certainly happen as I catch up on the digests. I’m delighted that you have given us the opportunity to continue “”meeting”” and communicating via the support forum. What an excellent idea! Thank you so much to Emma and Semele for the support and guidance you have given me throughout this course. You have gone above and beyond”” whatever I expected and I appreciate that. This is an amazing course full of new ideas, approaches and insights into this beautiful deck. Being on the course is like opening a treasure chest that is deeper and richer than I could ever have imagined. The course is well structured with practical, warm support and guidance along the way. You will be in safe hands as you delve deeper into the delights of the Thoth – it’s a whole new relationship to Tarot.”

“I absolutely 100% enjoyed the course, it surpassed all my expectations. I feel I have grown not only as a basic Tarot reader but also that my relationship with Thoth (which was very shaky and nerve wracking at the beginning of the course – the cards intimidated me) has grown immensely. I am now a confident, intuitive Thoth reader, something I never dared hope I would be. I also feel that I have grown psychologically as a person and discovered a lot of interesting things about myself in the process. This was all done in a warm, nurturing, supportive environment and I am delighted with the results. I can’t wait to sign up for part two of the course!”

“I had been intimidated by Thoth since buying it three years ago, and whilst feeling a powerful attraction to it, shelved it as ‘too difficult’ to turn into a working deck. Emma’s course enabled me to develop a powerful, respectful and loving relationship with Thoth and I will be using it as a working deck very soon. What made the difference? Emma’s deep love and knowledge of Thoth, and her creation of a sensitive, as well as challenging, learning environment in which I felt I could take risks and stretch myself. That was what made the difference. Thanks Emma, I owe you one! J”
