Richard Avila is a registered nurse who lives in Los Angeles, California.  

He has been a student of Tarot for 18 years, since 2000.  

Richard has been a student of both James Wanless and Dusty White, and currently studies with Benebell Wen.

Aside from Tarot, he has also studied the Lenormand deck with Mary Greer, Rana George, and Marcia McCord.  

Additionally, he writes articles and reviews decks for both the International Tarot Foundation and the American Tarot Association newsletters.  

Richard has also been a moderator for the Tarot Readers Development and Study Group on Facebook since 2015, where he regularly contributes content.

Lara Houston, lives in the North of England and is the founder of the International Tarot Foundation and the Tarot Readers Development and Study group on Facebook.

She describes herself as a self taught, intuitive Tarot reader who was keen to develop her art by giving hundreds of free readings in exchange for feedback and journaling.

Lara applied this knowledge along with her previous teaching experience  to write Tarot courses that teach the student how to  learn with confidence and find their own Tarot voice within a truly supporting environment.

Throughout her own Tarot studies, Lara has developed a deep appreciation for the historical and spiritual aspect of the Tarot which she  readily admits is hugely due to the influence of  Robert Place.
