Ave Fellow Aspirants!!
*** For anyone interested in knowing more about the life and work of B.O.T.A. founder, Paul Foster Case, I would like to share a link to a podcast that may be of interest.
Please join us this Sunday, July 28, from 2:30-4:30, at Isis Metaphysical Books and Gifts, isisbooks.com (2775 South Broadway, Englewood, CO), as we continue our Sacred Tarot study.
We will begin our study with an Ann Davies meditation, followed by our discussion on Key 15, The Devil, and Key 16, The Tower. The Devil is the collective personification of what we think of as evil. Key 15 is notoriously misunderstood, as it should be. However, for those who do the inner work and gain enough wisdom to laugh in the face of evil, there is the promise of Renewing Intelligence. Key 16, The Tower, is attributed to the mode of consciousness known as The Exciting Intelligence, which strikes as a lightning bolt, the symbolic direct energy force of God. The result is the destruction of old concept, old ideas, and the falsehoods generated by personal ego.
As with all of the Tarot Keys, there is so much wisdom to be gained that it would be beneficial to take time with the Keys prior to study. You will find that in your meditations you will reach greater depths of understanding of the symbols and profound personal meaning than what we are able to touch upon with our limited time together.
If you have yet to attend please don’t be discouraged by feeling you’ve missed out on something. The study of Tarot is designed in such a way that regardless of what Tarot Key we are giving our attention to there is much Wisdom to be remembered. A perfect place to start is always beginning with where you are right now. This is a great opportunity to meet with kindred spirits and discuss the Sacred Tarot in a way that goes far beyond the blind of fortune telling. This study is given on a donation basis.

Course Description in Isis Newsletter:
There is a way to self discovery that has been hid in the most obvious of places. Known as the Game of Man, the Tarot is more than a tool for divination. The Tarot is a gift meant to aid in the exploration of our individual personalities through the use of symbols. Please join Denver B.O.T.A. (Builders of the Adytum), as we explore the esoteric meaning of the Tarot Keys of the Major Arcana and begin a journey of self discovery meant to assist in the evolution of mankind, and accelerates the profound awareness of the Unity of All That Is. We will begin with a guided meditation lead by Ann Davies, co-founder of The B.O.T.A., via recording. These meditations incorporate the Divine Names of God in which the participants may join in chanting if desired. The study portion of class will begin promptly at 3pm. Michelle Blackburn is the Study Group Coordinator of the Denver B.O.T.A. and has been a student of the Tarot for nearly 25 years.
