Midwinter Conference

Schedule: Start 12:30 am – meet and greet 1 pm – Rashunda Tramble 'The Tramble Tarot Toolbox: A Collection of Self-Help Spreads for F*cknutTimes'I’ll share a couple of spreads and tarot-based thought processes forthe crazy periods in life: divorce, death of parents, health issues,self-esteem issues, financial issues, etc. Tea break 3 pm – Monica Bodirsky I will be sharing my experience with shadow work and mixing divination systems. In this workshop we’ll focus on Lenormand and tarot and how using them together can provide in-depth answers and clarity you may not experience with each deck separately. I’ll share information about how to work with and integrate your shadows from both the Jungian perspective as well as my own spiritual experiences within the shadows. I’ll demonstrate the House of Shadows layout so you can explore your shadows. I will be using the House of Shadows 5th edition Lenormand as well as the Shadowland Tarot deck for this workshop. Remember to bring a journal as well as a Lenormand and tarot deck. Tea break and Raffle 5 pm – Barbara Moore 'Comparing the RWS, Marseille, and Thoth decks' The Rider-Waite-Smith, the Marseille, and the Thoth tarot are three major decks that have influenced modern tarot. During our time together, we will compare and contrast these three decks from the point of view of modern usage (meaning we will not get into history). While we can certainly use any of these decks any way we wish, it is interesting to notice how they were designed to be used and are read differently by their various practitioners. We will assess the strengths and weaknesses of each deck and each reading approach. You may discover new approaches to apply to your deck of choice or you may be inspired to try a different style of deck. Close £20 for TABI members£30 for non-members Please send your payment via PayPal: treasurer@tabi.org.uk using the reference "Midwinter". Your PayPal receipt acts as your booking confirmation. A few days before the conference, we will email you a link to join the Zoom meeting.

The Symbolism of the Tarot as it was Created with Robert M. Place

The Tarot was created by artists in the early 1400s in Northern Italy when as enigmatic fifth suit, called Trumps, was added to the four-suit decks that already existed. This combined deck came to be known as the Tarot. All of the images in the Tarot can be compared in other works of art from that same time and place, and this comparison gives us the best window into the meaning of the cards. In this lecture will focus on the symbolism of the trumps as the Renaissance artist who created them would have viewed them and we will glimpse the mystical philosophy that they teach, a Neoplatonic philosophy that unlike the cards does stem from ancient Egypt. We are asking for a donation of £5 which will go to the Galgos del Sol charity. To book your place, please send your donation via PayPal to treasurer@tabi.org.uk with 'Symbolism of the Tarot' in the subject heading. Your Paypal receipt acts as your confirmation. You'll receive a Zoom link to join us on the 10th a couple of days in advance. Robert M. Place is an internationally recognized artist, author, and scholar of the Western mystical tradition. He has designed some of the most acclaimed modern Tarot decks including The Alchemical Tarot, and The Tarot of the Sevenfold Mystery. He is the author of The Tarot: History, Symbolism, and Divination,which is recognized as one of the best books on the subject. His most recent book, Tarot, Magic, Alchemy, Hermeticism, and Neoplatonism, is noted for its encyclopedic study of the subject. He has lectured at educational centers and museums on five of the seven continents, and he has appeared in programs on the Learning Channel, A&E, the BBC, and others.
