Class Series 1: The Keys of Magic
Date: (almost) every 2nd and 4th Tuesday
Location: Websters Bookstore and Cafe in State College, PA
Time: 7:30 - 9:00pm
Instructor: Soror Sevnstarr
In this class we will use the Tarot Major Arcana (known as Keys) of Builders of the Adytum (BOTA) as our jumping-off point to engage the many facets of the Western Esoteric Tradition. This Tarot deck, designed by Paul Foster Case, is especially useful for instruction and meditation as each design has been carefully constructed to convey many levels of meaning and relationship for those who are versed in this pictorial language. Each Key works on a conscious and subconscious level, repaying close study and meditation. If you are new to Hermetic study, this class will help to open the doors to the true nature of Tarot as the holy book of the Western Esoteric Tradition. Each class will finish with a mini session on various topics of the Western Esoteric Tradition. Topics are open to request from students at the discretion of the instructor. Starting in May, classes will be operated on a $5 suggested but not required donation basis.
