READING TAROT FOR OTHER PEOPLE
FREE INTRODUCTORY LECTURE OCTOBER 21 FOLLOWED BY 6 WEEK CLASS
Monday, October 21, 28, November 4, 11, 18, 25, December 2 7:00 PM -
The Tarot has been in use for at least 500 years, and probably much
longer. It can be a tool for observing the workings of karma, for
meditation, and, most commonly, for divination. When doing readings for
other people, however, special considerations must be made. This course
on Tarot will be taught with the beginner in mind. Covered will be the
meanings of the individual cards, how those meanings were derived, how
the cards are read, and, most importantly, how to present these readings
Bart Lidofsky has been reading, studying and teaching the Tarot for 20
years. He is also a member of the New York Theosophical Society, and is
on the Board of Directors.
