Additional Information from the Daughters of Divination/SF BATS website:

Artists, authors, teachers, and readers all come to share their wisdom under the auspices of the Daughters of Divination (DoD). Other divination systems sometimes enter the mix too, just to liven things up. Lenormand and other oracle systems are increasingly adding to the lively mix.

The Tarot Bazaar, a marketplace of tarot tools and trinkets, offers a wide array of tarot themed merchandise for purchase, much of it sold by the presenters. The Tarot Garden is on hand to tempt with their mouthwatering selection of decks, and the retail arm of the DoD, the Millard Fillmore Memorial Spiritualist Temple Garage Sale offers gently used books and decks and other items of interest.

Readings are available by several of the presenters as well as the core Daughters of Divination in what is known as the Pagan Science Reading Room.

All attendees are encouraged to put flyers, brochures and business cards on the “Table of Shameless Plugs” to help spread the word about their doings—we believe in community support, and getting the word out.

There is also a Raffle of Fabulous Prizes featuring wonderful offerings from all over the tarot world, the proceeds of which go entirely to charity; at least one of these charities is always a bat conservancy organization.

There is nothing like SF BATS. One of the most exciting things about it is the tremendous camaraderie—everyone is equal is their love of, and curiosity about, the tarot. Many books, decks, and systems have come out of the effervescent ferment that is at SF BATS.

All levels of interest and enthusiasm are encouraged to attend. Whether you come for one day, or the whole weekend you will be assured of camaraderie, learning and fun.

We’re excited to see you there!
