The courses of ESSENCE >> coaching provide the opportunity to get to know the compass that archetypes offer on the roadmap of life.
Knowing your essence is the core of personal development. Archetypes myths and symbols offer a unique and fascinating instrument to enlarge and refine your consciousness about yourself and life in general. The powerful symbolism of the Tarot focuses on developing a nonjudgmental, inner perception. The images on the cards stimulate your intuïtion, which translates these images into language that creates clarity. As a result a clearer picture can emerge of what is concealed beneath certain situations.
Your teacher Felice Derkinderen focusses in her lessons on using archetypes as both a mirror and a catalyst to bring to illuminate those areas in your life that are still in the shadows. In this way you can develop a higher insight in your own, often complicated life patterns. During the introduction workshop The Art of Living and in the course A Colorful Brain you learn how to use the Tarot as an instrument for inner research.
Felice knows what she’s talking about and shares her knowledge with enthusiasm, imagination, and such depths of expression that attending her classes is a real pleasure. More important still are her own lived experiences and insights and her intuitive wisdom, which she uses not only to teach you about the knowledge and wisdom behind the cards, but also to give your own layouts a deeper interpretation. I found this extremely valuable and got so much out of it. If you would like to learn how to work with Tarot cards yourself, I enthusiastically recommend Felice as a teacher and coach.

the conscious and unconscious personality
We all suffer from a certain division between our conscious and our unconscious personality, which leads us to live mainly in a certain part of it. Cognitive neuroscientific research shows that what we experience as 'the reality', is to a large extend determined by the one experiencing the reality. That is why self-knowledge is essential for finding your own way in life.
On the archetypal images of the Tarot, both collective and personal matters are presented as visual representations and in an extraordinary way, the images also reflect the state of consciousness of the viewer. This provides a means of intuitively connecting with deeper parts of yourself in order to discover hidden desires, thought patterns, impediments, and qualities.
your inner richness
Connection with these unexplored areas brings an experience of your inner richness, a sense of calm and spaciousness and enhances taking well-founded decisions. Furthermore researching your own - not yet realised - qualities and deepest wishes brings more satisfaction, creativity and lust for life. Discover how you can learn to use the Tarot as a navigation system for personal development and self-insight, and finding a sense of meaning and purpose in your life.
