What we're about

Welcome to the Denver Tarot Meetup!
The Denver Tarot Meetup Group is an open community dedicated to the practice of tarot. We offer a safe and encouraging place for new and experienced readers to read for each other, learn, and share their knowledge on all things tarot. There's so much information and different opinions out there that you'll never be bored. \

A Wide Variety of Events Each Month
The Denver Tarot Meetup currently offers seven regular meetups a month plus special events. We host:
• Learning workshops on the third Saturday of each month
• All-level tarot socials around the metro on the weekends
• Intermediate/Advanced tarot discussion group \

• A variety of special events
Learning Workshops: Learn Something New
We offer low-priced workshops on the third Saturdays featuring a guest speaker who is an experienced teacher, community leader, and recognized expert in the field. Throughout its history, Denver Tarot Meetup has hosted the best and brightest tarot readers and experts from the Denver metro area and beyond. These events introduce innovative techniques, deepen your understanding of basic tarot approaches, add practical skills to your toolbox, increase your proficiency, and provide space for personal development while you practice your craft.
Tarot Socials: Fun with Friends
Join us on the weekends for our popular Tarot Socials, casual meetups offered in your neck of the woods. These are great for newcomers and beginners—we share our decks, do readings, and discuss thoughts and questions about tarot in an open format. So come by even if you don't own a deck and bring a friend who's new to tarot. \

Intermediate Tarot Discussion Group: Diving Deeper
In collaboration with the Denver Tarot Geeks (https://www.meetup.com/Denver-Tarot-Geeks/), we offer an intermediate level discussion group to exchange ideas about tarot history and philosophy. A topic is pre-chosen and one of the regular group participants facilitates the conversation. Topics usually focus on the esoteric tarot, including studying the qabalistic and astrological correspondences of the cards for personal growth as well as deepening our understanding of the cards.

Special Events - Rub Shoulders with Tarot Celebrities
We also feature special events throughout the year in which we bring in out-of-town luminaries for talks, workshops, and classes or partner with another meetup to offer a joint event. We've featured a variety of top tarot teachers, including Martien & Teressena Bakens (Fifth Tarot), Barbara Moore (Steampunk Tarot and many others), James Wanless (Voyager Tarot), Katrina Wynne (Oracle Soup podcast), Shaheen Miro (Tattered Nomad Oracle), Beth Seilonen (Dream Raven Tarot and many others), Erik Dunne (Tarot Illuminati), Toney Brooks (Chrysalis Tarot), and Vicki Noble (Motherpeace Tarot).
But best of all, the Denver Tarot Meetup is a fun way to make new friends in a creative community that supports you, challenges you, inspires you, and welcomes you.

Inside/Outside: Dream Interpretation With Tarot with John Michael Allen

Goddess Isis Books & Gifts

$12.00

When we dream, our subconscious mind is attempting to communicate with our conscious mind in the only way it knows how: using images, impressions and sensations of a usually irrational nature. It often requires great effort to make sense of these dreamscapes, but we have an ally in tarot, a system of symbols known as archetypes, which can be used to connect with the archetypes that appear in our dreams.

More than once during the course of a reading, I have described the process to the querent as ‘a dream taking place on a table’. Our subconscious directs us to the appropriate images in the deck, and the resultant spread is a ‘constellation of archetypes’. The advantage we get with the cards is a fixed constellation using imagery we with which we are familiar.

Building off of the pioneering psychoanalytical work of Dr. Carl Jung, this workshop will take a look at his model of the psyche, the archetypes he identified, and how we can synchronize those images with those of the tarot. We will then have an opportunity to utilize these parallels with two exercises, one analytical and the other intuitive.

About Your Presenter

John Michael Allen began his journey with tarot in 1994, having been introduced to the cards by a secret crush. It wasn’t long before he fell further into the rabbit hole of esoteric tarot traditions, professional reading gigs, and venturing into teaching and conducting workshops. While having a strong appreciation of the esoteric side, he holds an equal value to inspired intuitive hits, and continuously aims to blend to two approaches. He currently organizes Denver Tarot Meetup and its esoteric sister Meetup, Denver Tarot Geeks.

Tarot Geeks - Tree of Life: The Supernal Paths

Gypsy House Cafe

$3.00

Over a century ago, a burgeoning magical society called the Golden Dawn began connecting the dots between the tarot and the centuries-old spiritual philosophy known as Hermetic Qabalah. The results took the 78 cards beyond divination into a pictorial map of cosmology, the human soul, ceremonial magic and many other applications.

In this 10-month series, we will be taking a comprehensive and integrated approach to the cards’ correspondences with the Qabala’s primary glyph, Tree of Life, exploring its concepts, how the cards reflect these concepts, and the interconnected network they create. Each session will focus on a particular subsection of the Tree and the cards associated with them.

This month we will covering the paths of the Supernal Triad: Aleph, Beth & Daleth, corresponding with the Fool, the Magician, and the Empress.

The material is of an intermediate to advanced level, so participants would be expected to have a basic knowledge of tarot. You can use any deck you like, although we recommend a deck following a Golden Dawn or Thelemic tradition for the most relevant symbolism. We also recommend some reading material to get the most out of the discussion. Some of our recommendations include:

The Qabalistic Tarot: A Textbook of Mystical Philosophy by Robert Wang
Paths of Wisdom: A Guide to the Magical Cabala by John Michael Greer
The Tarot: A Key to the Wisdom of the Ages by Paul Foster Case
A Practical Guide to Qabalistic Symbolism by Gareth Knight
The Chicken Qabalah of Rabbi Lamed Ben Clifford by Lon Milo DuQuette
The Mystical Qabalah by Dion Fortune

This series is donation based, which supports Tarot Geeks and allows us to continue providing informative and inspiring events throughout the year. $3-5 donations can either be made in cash or via PayPal to [masked] . Be sure to select the “Send to a Friend” option to avoid service fees.
