Tea leaf reading workshop coming to Ladysmith

Master tea leaf reader Tanya Lester is facilitating a workshop called The Ancient Art of Tea Leaf Reading March 17 in Ladysmith.

Learning how to read tea leaves is like finding out how to read a magical language.

Ladysmith residents will have the opportunity to find out how to do this at a workshop called The Ancient Art of Tea Leaf Reading, which will take place Sunday, March 17 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in The Vintage Rose lower level classroom space at 32 High St.

In this workshop facilitated by Tanya Lester, who has done thousands of readings and hundreds of workshops over a 16-year period, participants will be welcomed with a delicious cup of loose leaf tea. After drinking the tea, the master tea leaf reader will encourage them to find pictures in the leaves remaining in the cup and teach them how to intuitively interpret them.

During the day, there will be information about the history of tea leaf reading, how to make the tea for readings and where to get the tea to use, how to communicate what you see in the cup to the client or seeker and many stories from the facilitator to illustrate what can happen in readings, as well as how to do a reading from start to finish.

Lester has done tea leaf readings and workshops from Glasgow, Scotland and Boulder, Colo., to many American and Canadian communities, including Whitehorse, Winnipeg, Canmore and Vancouver, as well as many communities on Vancouver Island and in the B.C. Interior. She has taught this workshop at Vancouver Island University, Royal Roads University, Selkirk College, College of the Rockies, at the Fairmont Empress Hotel in Victoria and in many shops and homes.

Lester has written a book called Confessions of a Tea Leaf Reader, which is available through the Vancouver Island Regional Library system.

Lester is also a reiki master, tarot reader and art model who lived on Salt Spring Island for 15 years.
