Key to the Wisdom of the Ages
Study and practice will lead to greater self-awareness
and a higher Spiritual Perspective of life...
with its many trials
and many lessons to master.
Linda Cohen has extensive
training and experience in The Sacred Mystery School Teachings. Linda
and gives Tarot and other readings
regularly at Aum Shanti Bookshop. Linda has extracted, from much dense,
fascinating, and “secret” ancient sacred traditions, a
practical, fun, and step-by-step method of learning what Tarot IS and
how to best use Tarot teachings and practice to: (1) Help yourself
and others with significant questions and life directions; (2) As on-going
spiritual practice, encouraging higher states of consciousness and
greater daily mindfulness through Experience and Wisdom gleaned working
with this amazing living oracle.
Class 1: The Major Arcana
This class will include an introduction to the 22 Major Arcana cards
as pictorial representations of Major Archetypes of the human soul
progressing through “Stations” on “The Wheel of Life”.
We will learn of the cards intimate connection to the 22 letters of
the Hebrew alphabet and touch upon correspondences with The Tree of
Life and The Kabbalah. From The Fool, The Zero card, to The World,
card 21, we follow the soul’s path of evolution towards higher
consciousness. We will learn origins of the Tarot, significant symbolism
of the cards, and how to bring these magical archetypes to life in
our world. Each glyph, card, is a universe unto itself and yet is inexorably
linked to the cards before and after it… leading from the soul’s
incarnation, ultimately, to Spiritual Realization.
Class 2: The Minor Arcana
We will “meet” the 56 Minor Arcana cards of the Tarot.
We will learn the 4 major suits of the Tarot:
(1) Wands/Fire/Spirit; (2) Cups/Water/Emotions; (3) Swords/Air/Intellect;
and (4) Pentacles/Earth/the Material World. We will “meet” the
Court cards of each suit as well as learn the occult meanings of numbers.
We will increase our knowledge of the Tarot’s primary symbolism
and extensive system of spiritual correspondences.
Class 3: Beginning Our Practice
We will start to cultivate our own unique Tarot practice by learning
rituals and ceremony to accompany our practice- as well as learning
several different layouts for the cards. We will cultivate our Tarot
intuition. We will learn how to meditate on the cards in fun, active
and satisfying processes.
We will each learn to formulate significant questions and use our
cards to receive insight, clarity and answers.
