So while oracle cards can be quickly picked up in a day, the tarot can take months to really master so you feel you’ve got the confidence to give psychic readings and charge for them if you want to take that path.
Now in a live course you only have a certain amount of time to absorb all of this information, whereas in an online course you will most likely have lifetime access, which means you can revisit the lectures whenever you get stuck.
Personally I have attended dozens of courses over the years, and I know that I have retained very little information about what I learned from those courses. Whereas the online courses I have purchased whenever I get stuck, I just log back into my courses and revisit the exact lecture I need.
2) Access to ongoing support
Something I feel very strongly about in my online courses is providing access to me so I can offer support for my students if they are struggling with their course.
Most people assume that if you study online you are out there on your own.
I know for my students that’s not true at all. I’ve had students who started my course over 2 years ago and have returned to visit it and got stuck on a card reading and been able to email me and I’ve been able to help them.
With a live course you may not have this access to your instructor once the course if finished.
A student with lifetime access will also usually feel more comfortable contacting an online instructor than one from a course they did years ago. They may feel like – well they’re not my teacher anymore, why should they answer a question about something that taught me 2 years ago?
Whereas with lifetime access online teachers know that students can dip in and out of their courses for years, so they can offer that ongoing support.
While most students favour live courses because they know they’ll get more practice opportunities with other students, Facebook groups can now offer students this exact same opportunity.
Both my Tarot Card Success and How to be Psychic online courses have private Facebook groups where students who are in the course can exchange readings with each other to build up their confidence.
They can post card spreads and ask for feedback and interpretations, and really build up their confidence with the loving support of the private group.
This can really enhance the learning experience and help students continue to study the tarot for more accurate and detailed readings.
Years ago when I qualified as a ThetaHealing Practitioner, I met one person in the course who I practiced with and really connected with. And that was wonderful because we stayed in touch and supported each other.
When I did Doreen Virtue’s live AI seminar 10 years ago I stayed in touch with 1 or 2 of the students, but over the years we lost touch.
In a private Facebook group, my students connect with hundreds of other students, and have built relationships with so many different students across the world that have lasted years.
So with these types of opportunities online learning can really help you master the tarot and other psychic development topics.
3) Access to the latest updated information
Now I’ve done a lot of courses over the years, and I can’t remember ever an instructor from one of the live courses I’ve attended emailing me with the latest updates and changes to the courses they have taught me.
However, because I take online courses in graphic design and SEO and other subjects to help my business, my instructors frequently email me the latest information about the subject I am studying.
And I know in my own tarot course over the years I have added more lectures to the course as I delve more into the wonderful world of tarot.
This helps my students not only get access to the latest information and techniques, but also receive additional information to enhance their learning.
4) Cost Factor- Online Tarot Courses can cost so much less
As someone who has taught both live courses and online, I know the overheads for teaching live courses can be high. Not only does an instructor have to invest in advertising and materials, but they also need to pay to hire a space.
As a result instructors often need to charge hundreds of dollars for a 2 day course just to ensure their expenses are covered.
I used to charge up to $500 for a weekend psychic development course but now I can sell my online courses for only $97 because I don’t need to worry about overheads. I still have to invest in my equipment and have other expenses as well as the months it takes to create, edit and publish my course but I don’t need to charge $500 to cover that.
So now my students can learn what I used to teach in my live courses for less than a quarter of the cost!
There’s no denying this is probably one of the best things about studying online- the pajamas syndrome. You can literally sit around in your pajamas and discover how to give accurate psychic readings with the tarot.
