Tarot and the Tree of Life: An Introduction
Saturday, August 24, 2019
Crescent City Conjure, 2402 Royal, New Orleans
In this class, J.P. will present an introduction to the relationship between Tarot and Kabbalah with a focus on the Tree of Life. As the central structure in Kabbalah, the Tree of Life describes how energy flows from its divine source to our material world and back again. In turn, the ten spheres of the Tree of Life reflect the energies and symbolism of the Minor Arcana of the Tarot. We will also discuss how the twenty-two Major Arcana cards of Tarot correspond to the paths between the spheres in the Tree of Life. Taken as a whole, the spheres and paths of the Tree of Life provide a simple yet endlessly comprehensive foundation for a better understanding of Tarot meaning and symbolism.
This class is appropriate for both beginning and intermediate students of Tarot.
No previous knowledge of Tarot or Kabbalah is required.
The class will use variants of the Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot deck for instruction purposes but the concepts discussed can be used with any Tarot deck. Please bring your own deck to the class and something to take notes with. You may also purchase a deck at Crescent City Conjure, subject to availability.
Class size is limited and preregistration is required!
Cost is $30.
