REACH TAROT PROFICIENCY
Learn to read the cards fluently and cohesively in any context and for any question.
NO MORE CARD-BY-CARD READINGS
Embrace an interactive and dynamic reading style and see your reading as a whole.
Use suits, numbers, directionality and other tarot elements to add depth to your reading.
Many readers feel stuck at an "intermediate level" where they feel that they know the meanings of the cards and can read them in a number of contexts but their readings are lacking a "je ne sais quoi". Are you at that point in which a book of meanings is "yet another book of things I already know"? If you feel that you are ready to take your readings to the next level, the Tableau system of reading may be for you.
Reading a spread with set positions can feel too rigid, and it can be hard to see the reading as a whole when you are focused on each card in its position. The Tableau is a dynamic reading style that is approached in easily accessible layers, so that regardless of the situation, question and cards on your table, you have resources to give a satisfactory reading.
"TAROT IS SIMPLER THAN YOU MAY BELIEVE, IT IS ONLY INDECIPHERABLE WHEN WE ARE TRYING TO MAKE IT BEND TO FIT OUR NARRATIVE."
María's journey with tarot began when she bought a deck behind her parent's back circa 2006, and she hasn't put it back ever since. What started as a hobby eventually turned into a passion that became her full-time occupation in late 2015. At present, María is a reader, divination teacher, and international speaker.
Her signature style, known as Tarot Tableau, blends traditional tarot and European cartomantic techniques, resulting in a system that aims to make tarot effective, useful, and to the point. As a reader, she combines a predictive approach with practical analysis, exploring the possibilities available and offering actionable steps to deal with matters that are truly important to her querents.
While tarot is her default medium of divination, she has also delved into other divinatory systems to enhance her practice, with Lenormand and the Oracle Belline being two big favorites.
As one of the Directors of the World Divination Association and its Spanish-speaking branch, WDA Hispana, María is dedicated to promoting the love for divination worldwide. Together, they form a passionate and easy-going international community of diviners, providing high-quality, accessible education in traditional divination systems and fostering a supportive and engaging global network of like-minded peers.
Education is a cornerstone of Alviz's work, and she offers diverse online courses at the World Divination Association, such as Tarot Tableau Techniques, Exploring Sexuality Through Tarot, Tarot Death and Grief, and Oracle Belline, to name a few. She also enjoys cultivating closer relationships with her one-on-one students through private mentoring lessons tailored to their needs.
María has had the privilege of presenting at numerous online and in-person conferences, including the World Divination Association Big Bang Conference, Lenormand Summit, Divination Pride, Stockholm Tarot Conference, World Divination Association Virtual Conference, and most recently, StaarCon 2023, where she will be presenting an intensive in 2024.
Beyond her undying love for tarot reading, María indulges in her other passions, including history and antiques, especially the world of antique jewelry, literature, cross-stitching, travel, and spoiling her bratty cats. She is based in Madrid and resides with her fabulous husband, acting as the live-in servants of their five entitled kitties.
READINGS AND PRIVATE MENTORING
Fall in love with the talkative symbols of the Oracle Belline and its welcoming nature. This overlooked deck is one of the most fascinating that you will encounter and the combination of the symbols with the planetary correspondences of each card make it a brilliant system for layered reading.
Whether you are seeking to learn, practice or both, you are welcome to join a community of Belline readers in the Facebook group by the World Divination Association WDA - Oracle Belline - Learn and Practice.
