Tarot Depth workings: A Day with Six Trumps

11am-5.30pm. Focusing on the High Priestess, Empress, Strength, Temperence, Star and the World.

A prisoner without books, but with the Tarot and the ability to use it, could aquire universal knowledge within the space of a few years'. Eliphas Levi

The tarot images are, in the Western mystery tradition, keys of spiritual and magical knowledge. The task of the student is to gain their hidden wisdom, and traditionally this is done by two methods. Firstly, one learns the symbols -- numerological, symbolical, kabbalistic and archetypal; then one gains their 'gnosis' by entering their mysteries through psychic communion. Today's workshop offers a condensed experience of this time-honoured process for six trumps: High Priestess, Empress, Strength, Temperence, Star and the World. For each, the tutors will first teach the main symbols, then lead exercises to bring it to life, including guided meditation, discussion, and some ritual. Dense with information and lively with activities, the day will give participants experiences useful in their personal practices. Occultist Grillot de Givry wrote: 'The dynamic of the cards is beyond all discourse. You do not argue about it, you undergo it.'

Suitable for people who are familiar with tarot at a basic level -- have read books on the subject, read for themselves, or taken a foundation course. Handout and reading list provided. Suzanne Corbie and Diana Taylor are trained in the tarot and are respected readers. Both are gifted teachers, friendly, lively and intelligent.
