Using the traditional Rider-Waite-Smith deck, students explore the symbols, archetypes, and messages revealed through the major and minor arcana. Topics include alchemy, astrology, numerology, qabalah, and the Hermetic tradition of the Golden Dawn, in addition to a wealth of tarot knowledge. Naha brings 30 years of tarot study to this rich, in-depth magical course.
This course includes a Certificate of Completion for those who have taken the prerequisite Magic Fundamentals Level 1 and who score 80% or higher on the final test.
