Alchemical Tarot by Robert M. Place

I’m so excited to be conducting an all-day workshop at the Cal. Institute of Integral Studies. More than that, the admission rates go to support an incredible educational program. The Cal. Institute of Integral Studies does so much for the community, and gives sanctuary to brilliant, peculiar minds who otherwise have felt like they don’t belong anywhere else.

You can be a total tarot beginner or a seasoned practitioner. That’s because at the heart of it, this workshop is about where tarot card meanings come from, and the source of archetypes, instinct, and intuition. And yet tarot is very much an empirical, learned knowledge that asks for your focused study.

This course is about both mysticism and philosophy. A semiotic study of the tarot means embodying both the mystic and the philosopher, and that’s what we’ll do through a series of collaborative reading exercises.

After an overview of history and the development of different tarot designs, along with a brief introduction to reading mechanics, we’ll explore techniques for cultivating transformative personal spirituality, from divinatory readings for yourself to birth cards and pathworking.

You’ll team up with classmates to workshop your personal readings. You’ll also be reading for each other, to hone professional cartomancy skills. I’ll share my insights and insider tips, acquired from two decades of experiences in reading tarot for others. Explore your role as a channel for guiding others toward attaining wisdom and an improved quality of life.

    Oh no! I’m sure the answer is no, given the nature of how you’ve structured it, but any chance this will be recorded for later viewing? I’m already going to be on zoom all day for another conference-y kind of thing. And of course I want to do ALL the things!

  2. I have registered for the event. I guess it will be a 3am start to the day for me! Also being optimistic that things will work out so that I can still attend (pending some big personal life things going on).
    Keen as beans for this!

  3. Will the recording be available after the conference for a short time for those who can’t attend the whole day conference? I’ve attended zoom classes that were made available for a week, etc
