An Evening with the Tarot

Of course you've heard of the mysterious tarot deck, but how much do you really know about it? Come enjoy an evening with a Certified Grandmaster! You will learn about the art, history, psychology and mythology of the tarot, and even experience the cards in action!

In this lively presentation, you will learn how a trump-taking card game from the courts of Europe became an inspiration for poetry, a tool for divination, and, finally, an illustration of Man's archetypal journey from innocence into experience.

Within the 78 cards of the tarot are connections to Kaballah, astrology, numerology and freemasonry. Karl Jung found archetypes within them; that is, symbols of universal themes, characters and experiences.

Christiana will explain the many ways the cards are used today. As a special treat, she will demonstrate a traditional tarot "spread," and conduct a few readings for members of the audience.
