Welcome to Inner Goddess Tarot!
My name is Lori Lytle, I am the founder of Inner Goddess Tarot, and I have an absolute passion for reading Tarot cards. The history, the rich symbolism, the insights the cards can give us into our own hearts and minds have kept me fascinated for most of my life. I have studied the cards and read Tarot independently for many years, but recently I have felt a real shift in myself, and I firmly believe that the time is right to make this my full time profession.
To take my skills to the professional level, I completed a Tarot course here in Toronto, as well as a variety of online Master Class webinars led by distinguished Tarot practitioners. I immersed myself in an intensive Tarot retreat at the Omega Institute for Holistic Studies in New York, led by leading Tarot scholars, Mary K. Greer and Rachel Pollack, and undertook an apprenticeship with a well-respected Tarot reader in my home town of Toronto. I have read Tarot for hundreds of clients, both in person and by email, and have received consistently excellent feedback concerning my compassion, accuracy and insight.
Aside from Tarot, my educational background lies in Archaeology, Classical and Museum Studies, with a focus on Goddess worship, ancient history and mythology. In my university days, I spent my summers digging at archaeological sites in Athens and on the Greek Island of Crete, while soaking up the local culture and visiting museums. My career has been in the non-profit cultural fields in the area of event planning and administration, and I lived in Japan for several years, teaching English at an international university and traveling as much as humanly possible within Japan and Southeast Asia. I love to travel, particularly in Asia, Central and South America, visiting as many archaeological sites as I can along the way.
My love for and study of history, mythology and worldwide cultures complements my fascination with the Tarot. Tarot is a system of symbols, of universal archetypes, of ideas from deep in our psyches that have existed since the beginning of human civilization. My knowledge of ancient and modern cultures adds to my Tarot expertise, while my event planning and communication skills allow me to deliver an impactful and entertaining experience for my clients.
I am available for in person readings in two central locations in Toronto, as well as by email internationally. I also provide fun, fresh and interactive entertainment for private parties as well as large-scale corporate and fundraising events. Check out my Services page, I look forward to exploring the cards with you!
