The Living Tarot Oracle™ emerged in 2009 in the little rural town of Mancos in the magical land of Southwest Colorado when two friends, Julia Hesse and Tami Graham, joined their independent tarot projects to create the Living Tarot Oracle™.
The concept and training evolved for five years with some of the cast returning for all years and new people joining each year. It was performed for two years in the Old Opera House in Mancos and the following three years at the Durango Arts Center. In 2013 it won an award for the best Tarot Event Of The Year from Tarot Professionals. All total over 1,000 people from the US and UK attended the events over the five years.
Eventually it grew too big to sustain as a volunteer organization and requests were coming in from all over the US and Europe to travel. Tami gave her blessing to Julia to expand and take it on the road which is now a reality.
Both Julia and Tami have the deepest gratitude to all of the early LTO participants for their energy, creativity, and dedication to making this into the most unique tarot event in the entire universe!
