Beginning Tarot will meet each Saturday from January 28 – May 20, 2023 | 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM EDT (US)
This class will begin a new multi-year cycle of Tarot classes, presented in the way SOI uses Tarot.
Beginning Tarot: Structure and Major Arcana
SOI’s senior teacher, Shara Morales, will lead this course. A Certified Practitioner of Saphire® Imagery, she is deeply versed in the ways of teaching Tarot at the School of Images. In this course, she will focus on the architecture of the Tarot and introduction to the Major Arcana. Catherine Shainberg will make guest appearances throughout the semester.
Tarot SOI’s Way
At SOI, we do not view Tarot as a divination tool and do not do “readings” with that purpose or perspective in mind. Tarot is a book of images whose pages are reordered with every throw. Each image is a portal opening up a new way of seeing and understanding our own imagery and the revelations our images reveal.
With each throw, the configuration of images gives us a fresh look at our present moment and the possibilities that our subconscious reveals. It is a powerful tool to help all of us dream in a different way, especially those whose ability to tap their own imagery is nascent.
These throws do not come from a “reader” or any other external source – they come from the inside, from you, giving you a fresh look at your present moment and the possibilities that your subconscious reveals with each throw.
In this course we begin our study with an introduction and overview of the Tarot decks structure – Major Arcana, Royal Cards, and Minor Arcana – and begin a deeper exploration of the Major Arcana.
Tarot lets us see the truth of the matter as we see it, as it resides in each of us and as it is always revealed through inner gazing. It is both a mirror and a magnifier, allowing us to see into ourselves by exploring the imagery in these Tarot decks.
Fee is $650 for 14 90-minute sessions. Single and Two-Payment options are available upon registering.
No-Risk Bonus: Participants can join the first session without obligation to complete the course. If after the first session, you believe this course is not for you, SOI will refund all of your payment except $75 for this first class costs and fees.
While this is an interactive class, on a limited basis access to a review video of a specific session may be provided upon request.
