“Awesome”, “Fabulous presentation”, “It was wonderful – thank you so much!’, “What a great way to see the Fool – going HOME”, “Thank you, I learned a lot”. These are just some of the comments from people who were in the live recording session where Evelynne Joffe explained how a knowledge of the Kabbalistic Tree of Life enhances your understanding of the Tarot.
Evelynne uses the Rider-Waite-Smith deck in the presentation because its creators (members of the Golden Dawn) were students of the Kabbalah and the pictures on the cards were designed specifically to reflect teachings on the Tree of Life. The most intriguing aspect of the session is the ’Hanged Man’ perspective on the Major Arcana. Evelynne takes us on a journey of soul enlightenment from card 22, the World to card zero, the Fool. Should we choose to pursue a spiritual path, this is the journey our soul takes as it moves towards wholeness or unity with the Divine. The joy of the Fool is the joy of looking up, seeing the light and rejoicing that you are HOME.
