November 16, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm$35.00
The understanding and use of Tarot as both an oracle for self understanding and a tool for divination originated centuries ago. In the rich symbolism of the cards are encoded keys to life and the mysteries of creation.In this class, we’ll take a vivid tour through the 22 keys of the Major Arcana, and arrive at a functional understanding of this portion of the deck on its own, either as a guide to esoteric secrets or as a tool for divination. If you’ve ever found a Tarot deck mysterious, this class is for you – we will look at each card and demystify its symbols and meanings so you will understand and draw wisdom from them at a glance.
Instructor-Brother Moses is a cultural anthropologist, folklorist, spiritual minister and professional reader and conjure worker based in Colorado.
He has been steeped in his family’s old world folk magic traditions since childhood, and has spent decades studying the religion, spirituality, and magical practices of humans across time and civilizations while staying grounded in contemporary urban spiritual practice.
Working primarily in folk magical traditions–which he terms “the magic of pragmatism”– Brother Moses approaches spiritual work from first principles and core metaphysics, examining magical techniques and technologies to distill essential frameworks and parameters for their operation. By comparing methods, paradigms, and approaches across cultures, he discovers often surprising unities and similarities in magical understanding and application across the world and the ages.
Concerned with plants and bones, spirits and folk saints, Psalms and prayers, lamps and candles, amulets and talismans, oils and incense, dolls, jars, bags, dirt, and the other magical tools of everyday life, his conjure is a concentrated blend of the proven traditions and practices of the ancestors who depended on them, and the spiritual and material sciences they observed and derived.
