Tarot Essentials with Robert M. Place
at the NY Open Center
Because of the stay at home order,
this class will be conducted on Zoom.
Three weekly sessions on Wednesdays, 6 – 7:45 pm;
May 13, 20, and 27, 2020
at The New York Open Center, 22 East 30th Street, New York
In this three-part class we will first study the symbolism of the Tarot as its Italian Renaissance creators intended and come to see the spiritual message contained in the deck. Then we will learn and practice techniques for developing intuition and reading the cards as a message from the Higher Self. Students will need a Tarot deck created by Robert Place or the Waite-Smith Tarot.
For this class it is recommended that you buy The Tarot, Magic, Alchemy, Hermeticism, and Neoplatonism by Robert M. Place. The course is based on this book and you will get the most out of the class if you read it. The book will be available at the Open Center bookstore. You may also buy a copy of from this website and read it in advance of the class.

Because of the coronavirus outbreak,
Tarot at the Met is canceled
Wednesday, June 17, 2020
from 2:00 pm to 4:30 PM
I will once again take a small group of people into the back rooms of the Metropolitan Museum to look at the museum’s collection of historic Tarot and divination cards, ranging from the earliest woodcut Tarocchi, printed in 15th century Italy, to rare 19th century Le Normand divination decks. All accompanied by my talk on the history and symbolism of the cards. This year we will also see one of the oldest and richly illustrated books on divination with cards, Le Sorti, published in Venice in 1540.
The afternoon at the Met is $85 per person, prepaid. Each participant is also responsible for obtaining a ticket for entrance into the museum for the day. There is only room for 14 people at this event so don’t delay; it will fill up quickly. I will be handling this event myself; so all arrangement must be made through me.
