Meditations on the Tarot: The High Priestess

Meditations on the Tarot: The High Priestess

**You don’t need to be interested in Tarot to attend this offering.**
In this workshop you will learn about how the human brain perceives meaning in symbolic images, the way that Classical & Vedantan yoga philosophy differ from Tantra and how that difference is reflected in the High Priestess, a simple yet profound meditation called Centering Prayer, the dual nature of consciousness, and so much more.

The High Priestess, like all the other Major Arcanum of the Tarot, is an authentic symbol, i.e. she is a magic, mental, psychic and moral operation that awakens new notions, ideas, sentiments and aspirations. She acts as a ‘ferment’ or an ‘enzyme’ whose presence stimulates spiritual and psychic life. She conceals and reveals her sense at one and the same time according to the depth of meditation.

In this workshop, you will be led through a 45 minute alignment based practice to focus your body and mind towards effortless concentration followed by a contemplative study of the symbolism of The High Priestess as it is characterized in the profound spiritual text, ‘Meditations On the Tarot.’ Afterwards we’ll conclude with a transformative meditation called Centering Prayer.

Opening to the deeper meaning embedded in symbols such as the High Priestess makes us fertile in our creative pursuits in the domain of spiritual life. By engaging in this process you will gain an understanding of the concept of mysticism, gnosis (knowledge of spiritual mysteries), dualism, and the primacy of love. Please bring a journal and something to write with. If you have copy of Meditations On The Tarot, please bring it. If not, handouts of the passages we are reading will be provided.
