An expansion on the talk I presented at the Theosophical Society of the East Bay, this is a video (or audio) course that covers how a practitioner of craft might use tarot, from triggering intuitive creativity for self-empowerment, divination, and amplifying psychic ability to communion with celestial contacts, mediumship, and summonings. This is an intermediate course that presumes proficiency with tarot. Subject matter also runs into esoteric and mystical applications of the tarot, so the tone of the course might not be right for everyone.
Also, just so you are aware: the tenor and value propositions of this course goes in a diametrically different direction from Holistic Tarot.
I’m really excited about this course and I hope you are, too. If you are a practitioner of craft, whether it’s just dabbling, still finding your path, you identify as a witch, magician, diviner, medium, psychic, or shaman, I just know that this course will deepen and enhance whatever amazing mojo you’ve already got going on.
This course is not about teaching tarot. I do not teach you tarot. In fact, I pretty much assume throughout the lecture that you already know a lot about tarot. Rather, this course is about deepening and broadening your relationship with your tarot deck so that you can get more metaphysical mileage out of it.
What Holistic Tarot taught was only the first of the five pillars that are discussed in this course. This course will deconstruct the form and mechanics of using tarot for:
- Intuitive Creativity to achieve self-empowerment;
- Divination to connect to what Paul Foster Case called the Cause of Causes—the Universal Intelligent Life Energy;
- Psychic Readings both to amplify your innate psychic ability and to use tarot as a training tool for strengthening your psychic ability;
- Celestial Contacts to connect with deities, angels, ascended masters, devas, or the metaphysical force affecting physical conditions; and
- Netherworld Contacts and using tarot for mediumship, ancestral connections, or connecting to entities of nether-worlds and other-worlds.
A workbook with exercises to help you learn and master the mechanics of such tarot operations will also be provided to supplement the video lecture.
Finally, you will have the opportunity to ask questions and the most frequently asked questions will be answered in a follow-up FAQ video that will be sent to you. There may be multiple FAQ videos delivered to you by e-mail from time to time thereafter, dependent on the inquiries that come in.
You will receive:
- Online private access to a video lecture [length: 1 hour 15 minutes]
- A PDF digital file of a 49-page workbook
- Sub-folder files of supplemental reference material
- Access to subsequent FAQ video(s) or e-mail(s) [TBD]
Oh come on. That’s a great price for what you’re getting. It’s like you’re buying me a fancy lunch in exchange for picking my brain.
Also, this is not a video lecture that you watch just one time. I propose that the video lecture and the workbook should be revisited routinely. Print out the workbook multiple times and routinely work through the exercises prompted in the workbook to help you advance and further develop the skills taught in the video lecture.
Although the lecture is provided as a video recording of a voiceover narrated PowerPoint presentation, you could listen to it as an audio without missing too much. There are a few sections (very few) where I refer to images on the presentation slide, but overall, you’ll be able to follow nonetheless as an audio.
You’ll get a private, unlisted YouTube link (please do not add to any playlists or share the link in an unauthorized manner, thank you in advance) so you can always stream it online.
You’ll also get access to the MP4 files of the video lecture so you can download the video files directly onto your computer, save for life, and watch at your leisure for life. The video files altogether are 1+ GBs, so it’s a mother to download. That’s why I provide the YouTube link, for immediate access.
As it tends to be when you’re working with me, the workbook is the most important part of this course. The 49-page workbook is intended for use and re-use. Print it out many times throughout your development to work through the training exercises.
The training exercises begin basic and analytical, compelling you to work with numerology, astrology, Kabbalistic references, and other forms of symbolism and system correspondences to broaden your working and experiential knowledge of the tarot.
Then the course deep-dives into training exercises for mediumship, using tarot for celestial contacts, using tarot in shamanic journeying, using tarot as talismans, and so much more. I hope you will be as thrilled and enthusiastic about this workbook as I felt when I went through the exercises for myself.
I really believe that this workbook will be a game changer for you in terms of your relationship with tarot as your divinatory tool, especially if you’re looking to hone your psychic abilities, intuition, and experience various forms of mystical training. As I tend to do, I fuse together eastern and western esoteric principles.
Yes, you’ll also get access to the DOCX MS Word version of the workbook, so you can easily cut and paste from the workbook into your personal tarot journal and work with the content in a more customized way for yourself.
Your course materials will also include loads of supplements. Many are already free and available for download here on this website, but tucked into organized file folders in your course materials packet for easy access and reference.
Then there are never-before-seen materials. Since I make reference to specialized terminology throughout the lecture, I worried that some of the newer-to-the-path practitioners might not be able to follow along or don’t have their own personal recipes just yet, so I also provide you page scans from my personal grimoire to help lend some reference.
Trade Paperback Book + E-Book
Included as part of your course materials will be a compilation of the workbook, a full transcript of the lecture, and all of the FAQs or answered questions from the pilot class of Tarot as a Tool for Craft.
The compilation is formatted into the standard trade paperback size, or 6″ x 9″ trim, ready to be printed and bound into a book. The PDF you receive will have a hyperlinked table of contents, so you can navigate from chapter to chapter on your digital e-book reader.
So in addition to the video lecture, the regular paper size PDF workbook for printing, and loads of supplements, you’ll also get a transcript of the lecture consolidated with the workbook content in a portable size book.
A great deal for what you’re getting, if you’re ready for it, this course will advance your esoteric tarot practice to deeper levels.
