Half-price for first-time readings at Woodstock NY office!

Published April 15, 2019 by Donnalee of Woodstock NY

I am offering half price on readings for the rest of April at my Woodstock NY office for new clients or those who have not been by for a while. I will be away for a few days at the big national Tarot School Readers Studio conference at the end of the month.

I hope to hear from you soon!

Tarot readings at your Woodstock area party or event available!

Published April 6, 2019 by Donnalee of Woodstock NY

Recently there has been an increasing number of requests for me to read tarot at private events and I love doing it if it’s the right kind of situation. Here is an idea of what it is like, so you can see if it would be something you would be interested in having at your Woodstock NY area event. These can be bachelorette parties, gatherings, reunions, private social events for almost any or no real reason, held at your home or venue.

I always do readings geared towards the best outcome for the person, whatever the chosen subject matter–for general best outcome or best outcome for money or romance or job (or funding or advanced studies or multi-million-dollar business or health and sanity or relocating or any other private concern). I tend to be sincere, private, and try to offer practical suggestions, so each person would sit with me privately somewhere, often a spare room or private porch etc., and there would not be an audience during the readings. It’s fine if people chat about their readings afterwards, but it gets too distracting to have extra people hanging on every word for the sitter to really get the best value from the experience. Additionally, if I say something really confidential to the person or they to me, I want it to be their choice to keep it to themselves if they desire. Many sensitive topics come up during readings, and I will always keep it private, no matter who the sitter is or their level of public profile etc. My goal is to genuinely help people feel like they have a good sense of what will help them for real in their lives, instead of me just making predictions or acting as some sort of public entertaining. These events work best with people who understand that and who are interested in what I have to offer. I bring a range of decks with which to read and sitters may choose any of them for their readings.

The fee is $35.00 plus optional tip for each person for a reading of twenty minutes per person. Ten people to be read for seems to be about the maximum practical number except if the event is all day long and there is more time for breaks etc. Practically, five people might take a bit under two hours total including breaks for me, and we can always work around schedules and numbers.

I did a tremendously fun event for a group of ten people last night, and it felt really successful: I enjoyed getting to know each person, and they seemed so pleased with their readings. Each person approached it with an open mind and a sense of wanting to learn and to benefit, and the feedback was very positive and uplifting to hear. It was a wonderful night for all, and I was delighted to be part of a special celebration for them. Things came together to make it be a worthwhile party for all of us.

I hope that I can take part in such an enjoyable, beneficial, and novel experience for your next Woodstock area gathering. Please email me at laughingdakinimusic@yahoo.com to find out more.

Thanks and best wishes–

Tarot Pink Promotional Banner by Roxi Sim Tarot Pink Promotional Banner by Roxi Sim, Creator of the Pearls of Wisdom Tarot

Tarot Pink for Cancer is a collaborative tarot deck project organized by Ron Leong, founder of Tarot eCards, a digital app for storing electronic versions of whole tarot decks on your smartphone. The mission of the collaborative tarot deck project is to raise funds for breast cancer research. The concept is to reach beyond the tarot community and introduce tarot to the greater public as a tool for emotional, spiritual, and physical healing, with a focus on fighting breast cancer.

The theme of the deck is “Tarot Pink,” with an emphasis on the tarot’s ability to inspire, empower, and support in a person’s physical wellness journey. Although the financial cause is dedicated to breast cancer research, the deck itself is keyed to all forms of physical healing and the path to wellness. The color pink…

Intuition and support, not prediction.

A longtime psychotherapist and negligent meditator, I first read tarot cards in 1984 and have been involved with them on and off ever since. I took highest tantric vows with His Holiness the Dalai Lama in NYC in 1999 and in the years afterward have been fortunate enough to study with many of the highest Tibetan Buddhist teachers, and sang some four or five million mantras over those years as a practice. For a few years I saw people as a medical intuitive very successfully (in addition to being a psychotherapist) until my getting electrocuted in 2007. After that event and its aftermath, I stopped or slowed most of these activities to focus on health and recalibrating. As health and circumstances have improved, I have expanded my work in the last few years to consult for a number of folks on their life issues, to study and hang out with some of the great 70s/80s rockstars and other musicians of all sorts, and to work as Stage Manager and Assistant to the Directors, and even in-house psychotherapist, on various musical shows. Specialties in psychotherapy include buddhist psychology and working with old-fashioned multiple personality/DID folks and other survivors of trauma, as well as working on the musicals. I have begun to offer tarot readings to the public again, and I am delighted at the reception of this service–I missed it!

I am excited to be able to offer readings on the themes of “What is best for me to be aware of and to do for the highest and best outcome of this situation?” These readings can apply this question to any area of life, including work, relationship, career, general wellbeing, spiritual direction, life planning, unfinished business, etc. I do not ‘predict’ specific events or specific timelines, since these are so variable and depend upon what each of us does. I also do not do readings about personal details of third parties without their permission (such questions as “Is s/he involved with someone else?”, “Is s/he gay/straight/this or that?”, “Is s/he my religion/race/whatever?”, “Does s/he have a lot of money?”, etc. are best asked of the person, not of me!). As a member of ATA (American Tarot Association), and member of TABI (Tarot Association of the British Isles), I additionally abide by their codes of ethics.

For the moment I am doing readings by email primarily, with in-person appointments available one day a month on the Upper West Side of New York City on a Saturday, as well as readings in Central NJ on a regular basis for individuals and small groups. Please email me about availability and fees for these services, or use the comment form at the bottom of the page..

The “best outcome on single theme” email readings are $35.00 each for one question category on the above theme of best outcome, and generally take about half an hour for me to do. They are ordinarily done and sent to you within 24 hours and most often much sooner.

To request this type of email reading, send US $35.00 payment via Paypal for the “best outcome” spread to laughingdakinimusic@yahoo.com in advance with your question (example: “What do I need to know for the best outcome for my job situation?” or “What do I need to know to help me figure out if I want to stay in this relationship?”, etc.). Please mention your choice among the following decks for the reading, if you have a preference of which deck you would like me to use for your reading (click names to see deck images via Aeclectic Tarot site):


Universal Waite, Universal Fantasy, Pagan Tarot, Harmonious Tarot, Hanson-Roberts, Mystic Faerie, Paulina Tarot, and Tarot of the Old Path, plus some of the newer small-batch decks including City Mystic and The Fountain are currently available. If you do not specify a deck which you would like me to use (or a preference of which not to use), I will choose what seems best for the reading. I make custom spreads for each “best outcome” reading, so each one is a little different depending on the situation and on the person who requests the reading.

The larger readings, on serious issues that explore the possible gifts of a usually-difficult situation (most often relationships with parents or other longterm relationships, living places or jobs, or other traumas such as accidents or illnesses or severe losses etc.) are $125.00 each and take me considerably longer to read, although they will be sent to you within the 24 hours in most cases. The layout was devised by me specifically for this and I have used it with great success for myself and others. It explores the crux or status of the situation, how it affected you, what gifts can be gained from it, and what has to be done in order to receive those gifts. Many have found it very powerful and felt real shifts in their situations and ability to accept, allow, and receive the benefits of their situations, even those from the past, and this benefit has been seen to extend to other aspects of their lives. I am really excited about this spread and keep seeing positive results in my own life from having done it recently on some key areas.

Specify the larger reading and the area of inquiry with the appropriate Paypal payment of US $125.00 to laughingdakinimusic@yahoo.com . The larger reading is done with a combination of two decks. Click the button below to purchase this larger “Gifts Of A Situation” reading.

You will receive a confirmation via Paypal and from me directly, with an idea of when the reading will be finished, so be sure to allow this email address to be received by your provider: sometimes AOL and others can exclude certain other providers if the addresses are not specifically accepted, so emails are never received by you. Gmail also sticks unfamiliar email into folders that are sometimes never seen by the user, so it’s good to be aware of that too if it applies to you. Thanks for helping with this!

There are no refunds possible once readings are completed, since each one takes time and effort. Thank you for your understanding of this.

I DONATE 10% OF ALL INCOME THAT I GET FROM READINGS, DONE IN PERSON OR ONLINE OR ANY OTHER WAY, TO CHARITIES. I WILL SOON HAVE SOME LISTED AND THEN CLIENTS CAN SPECIFY WHICH GROUP THEY WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT THROUGH THEIR READINGS FROM ME.

Thank you for letting me help you gain some insights into your own life and the most direct ways to encourage and allow the best possible outcomes. I am open to hearing requests for many types of readings, not just those very few listed here so far, so please feel free to contact me with requests. Best wishes, and I look forward to hearing from you!
