"The soul thinks in images."  (Aristotle)

 

This class will demystify the secrecy and misunderstanding that surrounds the Tarot.  The 78 cards in the Tarot deck are a mystical, symbolic “system” that provides a visual map of consciousness.  It allows us to communicate with our inner mind in its own language of symbols and images.  It can therefore be understood as a visual embodiment of Jungian archetypes, offering insight into all aspects of our lives, especially the underlying drives, motives, and complexes.  The images on the cards can act as mirrors of our mental, emotional and spiritual development and levels of consciousness.  As a symbolic map, the Tarot shows us archetypal and universal layers of consciousness that appear cross-culturally.  It offers us a direct link to the vast wisdom of the collective and unconscious minds.  In particular, the 22 cards of the Tarot's Major Arcana symbolize the life lessons we need to learn as we progress on the path of our spiritual and psychological growth.


These 78 cards are also understood as a sacred text encoded in symbols and pictures that can be used for divination.  But for the purpose of this class, the focus will be on the current emphasis on Tarot as a mechanism for inner exploration, self-analysis, self-knowledge and a self-help tool.  Please join Rev. Geraldine for an overview of the Tarot system, its connection to Jungian/archetypal psychology, how synchronicity operates in the use of the cards and much more. 

This is an interactive class so bring your Tarot deck or decks will be provide for use during the class.  No experience with Tarot needed and all decks welcome.


Space is limited!  To ensure your spot, please register in advance HERE.
