National Lodge

The National Lodge is a self-study program available to members for an annual fee. Each year, the National Lodge covers a specific topic of study and sends monthly lessons via email or post. 

September 2020 - August 2021:
The Tarot: A Dictionary of  Archetypes with Richard Smoley

Explore the history and the meaning of  the Tarot: where it came from, what influence it has had, but, most importantly, the meaning of its most profound and mysterious part: the twenty-two-card series called the Major Arcana.

This monthly course will go into the possible origins of these cards and their correlations with other sacred systems, including those of sacred geometry. It will focus on the symbolic meanings of the Major Arcana and suggest that they represent a kind of  dictionary to the archetypes of the collective unconscious as described by C.G. Jung. It will also include suggestions for contemplations on the Tarot images.
