We are excited to have Marilyn joining us in our shop
for art walk. Marilyn has been reading the leaves and tarot cards for
over 30 years. Over that time she has developed as a medium and medical
intuitive as well as a counselor to help clients begin to resolve any
problems or blockages they may be encountering in their
lives, whether emotional, physical or spiritual in nature. She is
known to have a high degree of accuracy and an entertaining and cheerful
reading style. You're almost sure to have a good laugh and a good cry
during your reading as well as a sense of breakthrough and moving on
with your life. She can also spark your intuition and teach you to read
the tea leaves. Readings are $1 a minute and readings usually last
between 10 to 20 minutes. Let Marilyn know before hand how long you
would like the reading.
