Tanya Lester discovered that her family line naturally draws her to tea leaf reading. This is a portion of the 'live' show of "Living on Purpose" on CHLY.ca (Nanaimo) on January 13, 2009, which features numerous call-ins from listeners. Tanya is a Master Tea Leaf Reader based on Salt Spring Island, B.C. Over a 13 year period, she has done 1000s of readings and over a hundred tea leaf reading workshops in Canada (especially in B.C.), the United States and Europe. She has done presentations based on her book manuscript, "Confessions of a Tea Leaf Reader", at the Victoria Tea Festival and the Nanaimo Metaphysical Network. She is also a tarot reader, a reiki master, an art model and a freelance writer. To arrange a reading with Tanya or to attend one of her workshops, go to:

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
