In this 4-class course, "Introduction to Tasseography", you will start by learning the history related to tasseography, and other forms of randomized divination, then venture into the most critical lesson for all diviners: self-trust.
Class 1 - The first class will cover basic skills for tasseographers, such as selecting tea and teacups, as well as turning the cup for readings. We will begin to learn how to look for patterns in the cup, honing vision and mindset.
Class 2 - The second week students will begin their personal dictionaries of symbols. Common symbols will be explored as well as understanding timepass in the cup chart and various cultural traditions in symbology. In this class, new tasseographers will practice with a partner.
Class 3 - Specific symbols will be the topic of week three, including but not limited to elements, astrology, and letters and numbers. There will be a chance for more practice with a partner.
Class 4 - The final week, we will discuss stepping into reading cacao, coffee, wine, or juice sediments, as well as clarifying with a pendulum, the ethics of divination, and starting to put a storyline together from the cup.
What You'll Need To Participate In This Class:
For the class, students will need at least one teacup and saucer, paper towels, a note-taking method where you can begin your own symbol reference dictionary (analog or digital, as you prefer), a way to make hot water, and plenty of tea. It would also be helpful to have a system of clearing/grounding your area. Also, a bright light will be needed for sharing your cup with the class, as well as taking pictures to share.

It’s rare to find Rissa without tea. No matter where she is or what she’s doing, she usually has a steamy cup of green tea right beside her. She even takes tea in her bottle on runs! She has been practicing tasseography, ie tea leaf reading, since she first had loose tea fill her cup as a teenager. Over the decades, she honed her methods and refined her language to tell the story of each teacup she reads. Tea is one part of her love of plants. She also dries herbs and flowers to create handmade smoke cleansing herb bundles and handcrafted incense. Rissa currently studies (online) at Chestnut School of Herbal Medicine where she is learning more about the medicinal quality of plants. She holds a deep reverence for plants and the answers they offer, whether as tasseographs in a teacup, smoke in the air, a healing salve for the skin, a houseplant on the windowsill, or nourishment for the body. Rissa finds deep peace in plant souls, and believes that their whispers are available for all who choose to listen.
Rissa is a published author and poetess, has had several plays produced in the mid-Atlantic area, and works a day job as a food editor. She’s worked for five publications in her career and studied writing at New York University/Tisch School of the Arts and photojournalism at Western Kentucky University. Her sun sign is Pisces; moon sign is Capricorn; rising sign is Scorpio; and Rissa was born in the year of the Wood Rabbit.
