Wednesday, January 19th | 7:00pm-8:30pm | Tarot History: French Occultists


Tarot reading and occult practices have seen a resurgence over the past few years. But where did it all begin? While many use the cards as a fortune-telling device or a self-reflection tool, the decks' origin is a debated story. What you’ll find in many books may lead you to believe that the tarot contains lost esoteric knowledge, but the truth is no less interesting but far more mundane. 

The second course will explore how an obsession with Egypt and foreign religious practices by French Occultists took tarot from a simple card game and turned it into a divination device.

Please note: This class can be purchased as part of a three-class package including Tarot History: The Deck Creation in Italy on December 15th, and Tarot History: The Order of the Golden Dawn on February 16th.

This class is appropriate for ages 14+.
