The Tarot is of perennial interest to students of esotericism. Its compact symbolism and connections to other Mystical Paths continue to intrigue us.
In this workshop, we will consider the Major and Minor Arcana of the Tarot from a Rosicrucian Perspective, seeing how they connect with Kabbalah, Alchemy and Meditation. After having taken a look at the history of Tarot, workshop participants will then have a chance to consider the symbolism of the Trumps and Suits, and to begin to develop a personal numerology, which comes from their own experience, as well as from the Primordial Tradition.

He currently serves at the Grand Lodge (San Jose) in Membership Services. He is an active member of both the Rosicrucian Order, AMORC and the Traditional Martinist Order and has served as an officer in both Orders.
His current areas of interest include how the Primordial Tradition permeates all world traditions, and the way in which the Rosicrucian and Martinist Paths provide a unique and unifying viewpoint on those traditions.
