i-ching-jiao-bei-chinese-oracle-bone-script

It wasn’t enough for me to just go to work for my day job, come home, eat dinner, and kick up my feet. I needed my mental faculties to stay active. I sought something to just maybe shed light on the metaphysics of nature. I sought answers to the big questions.

The seeker in me found dynamic expansion in tarot, cartomancy, divination, astrology, numerology, the I Ching, and craft. Understanding the metaphysical dimension enhanced and empowered the physical dimension of my world. Take a step into these waters this 2017 to learn something you didn’t even know you didn’t know.

A Comparative Analysis of Fortune Telling and Divination in Tarot: A Chinese Perspective

| FREE |

Is there any value for a tarot reader to make a distinction between fortune telling and divination? How might Chinese perspectives compare to or inform Western perspectives? This workshop will examine the Chinese etymological origins of “fortune telling” and “divination,” apply medieval esoteric Taoist texts to tarot reading, juxtapose those texts with what Western occultists have said on the matter, and propose a theoretical framework through which to read tarot, as either a fortune teller or a diviner, though the two are not mutually exclusive.

Introduction to Chinese Feng Shui

| TBD |

This course teaches the basics of both form school and compass school (both flying star and eight mansions) feng shui. I will explain when each system is more appropriate and why. The course will cover both residential feng shui and commercial feng shui, since the rules you’d apply for your home is different from the rules you’d apply for your office. We’ll also cover the traditional Chinese-Taoist approaches to crafting feng shui cures. Through video lectures that will walk you through different spaces and layouts to visually demonstrate to you how to observe and analyze a space for feng shui implications, handouts, feng shui master checklists, and workbooks, the objective of this course is for you to become a proficient feng shui consultant and for you to be able to “feng shui” any living space, for yourself or for others. How to conduct a professional feng shui consultation for others will also be taught.

Learning the Opening of the Key

| $49 USD at the Tarot Readers Academy |

The Opening of the Key is a five-operation inter-disciplinary divinatory procedure rooted in the adept traditions of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. Today, given the publicly available records of the procedure, it can be used by tarot practitioners from all backgrounds. Learning the Opening of the Key (OOTK) isn’t about learning the OOTK. It is about deepening your understanding of divination. Through a series of eleven video lectures, a 50-page OOTK workbook, and a wealth of study guides, handouts, templates, and quick reference sheets, you will not only master the OOTK procedurally, but also learn basic astrology, numerology, and the Kabbalah.

Note: “Learning the Opening of the Key” was first offered during Tarot Summer School 2016 at the Tarot Readers Academy. It is now a legacy course at the Academy.

Millionaire Magic: The Metaphysics of Cultivating Prosperity

| TBD |

From a metaphysical and spiritual perspective, why do some people suffer financial insecurity? How do you manage the constructs of fate, karma, our own personality strengths and weaknesses, feng shui, and willpower (both physical and magical) to improve our prosperity metrics? Drawing on my interactive experiences with both self-made millionaire moguls and with ceremonial magicians, I find areas of commonality between them and what points of intersection you can learn from both groups. How can you cultivate the power that both groups have to manifest personal wealth? How do you work with Qi energy, mana, kami, or life force to improve your material abundance and establish security? What is the prosperity mindset and how do you embody that mindset to create measurable improvement in your personal wealth? This beginner course presumes no background knowledge in craft and will be taught by video (or audio) lecture. The course will include a workbook of personal exercises to help you begin cultivating the prosperity mindset.

Sole Proprietorship in the Sacred Arts

| TBD |

So you’re a tarot reader, astrologer, numerologer, shaman or witch who seeks to market your craft, or a practitioner of a variety of sacred arts and now you’d like to make that part of your life’s work, to sustain your livelihood with your craft. I bring in my knowledge and experience as a corporate attorney in venture capital who has assisted startups and every size business ranging from the small sole proprietor to publicly traded companies to arm you with some basic business sense, what you need to know to operate within the bounds of law of your jurisdiction, and how to do good–how to multiply personal abundance through authentic goodwill rather than aggressive promotional tactics. I tailor my course toward mastering the soft sell rather than the hard sell. In this text-heavy course with only minimal introductory videos, you’ll get checklists, templates, and everything you need to launch a sole proprietorship in the sacred arts. Most of the supplemental materials provided with this course are already available on my website for free download, but in this course, everything will be organized and archived for your easy access and understanding.

Tarot Divination My Way

| TBD |

This is not a good tarot course. For starters, it presumes you have a basic working knowledge of the cards already, so we won’t be covering what the tarot is, card meanings, the three-card spread, or any Tarot 101 jazz. If you want a good tarot course, look elsewhere or check out Holistic Tarot and work through the book independently with these free study guides and supplements. Instead, this course is about my specific and signature approach to tarot divination. Learn tarot divination my way, and how I practice the art. This course will cover my personal method for cleansing and blessing cards, programming my decks in preparation for divinatory and metaphysical work, how I store my decks, how I treat my decks, why I perform such exercises, how I use tarot in my personal life, my work at the intersection of tarot and astrology, and how I read tarot for others and for myself.

Tarot as a Tool for Craft

| $ 15 USD |

An indispensable course for any practitioner of craft seeking to develop a deeper and broader metaphysical connection with the tarot, this video plus workbook course will cover using tarot for self-empowerment and how to adjust form and mechanics of tarot reading when using it as a tool for divination, for amplifying psychic ability, for communion with spirit contacts, or for mediumship work. This is an intermediate course that presumes proficiency with tarot (also presuming the Rider-Waite-Smith system) and that you are a practitioner of or deeply interested in occult craft. 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.

The Tao of Craft: A Companion Course

| TBD |

This course will be teaching out of my second book, The Tao of Craft. Thus, having a copy of the book will be a prerequisite. Having read the book? Not a prerequisite. This course is about how to navigate the book, where to start, how to start your own book of methods, collect a starter set of tools in a budget-friendly way, and most important of all, irrespective of your chosen path, teach you how to think about craft. Although this course is taught from a defined tradition and perspective, the purpose for that is to convey a case study in craft that can then inspire you to better define your own craft. This course is taught from a Chinese esoteric Taoist point of view and principles are built from Chinese Taoist ontological and metaphysical theory. E.g., we will be working with the Wu Xing rather than the Western alchemical four elements, the Taoist trinity, the Chinese Taoist pantheon, history and cultural practice of magic or sorcery in documented Chinese Taoist traditions, citing Chinese Taoist scriptures, and working with the luni-solar calendar for astrological and moon phase correspondences. As part of this course package, you will receive digital files to a Fu talisman design companion deck that you can print and use to help you design Fu talismans.
