Introduction to the Tarot of the Greek Magical Papyri
Presented by Jason Augustus Newcomb
Jason Augustus Newcomb, the designer of the Greek Magical Papyri (PGM for short) Tarot will discuss practical uses for this amazing deck. The art is based on ancient Greek pottery, late antiquity magical gems and the talismans of the PGM. It is very much a “magical” Tarot with more than 40 talismans from the PGM incorporated into the deck. Unlike most modern Tarot creations it is not really oriented around Qabalah or the Rider-Waite model, but is instead much more directly related to Pythagorean and Platonic philosophy and a chthonic magical journey. In this class I will teach several spells that can be conducted using the cards of the PGM Tarot that incorporate ancient spells and modern techniques, as well as his visionary tools for connecting with the spirits represented in the deck.

Reading with the Sacred Mysteries Chakra Card Deck
Presented by Victor Daniels
If you’re a Tarot reader, you can probably do chakra readings with the Sacred Mysteries Chakra Oracle deck. These beautiful cards, illustrated by a world-class artist in the Indian classical tradition, are accompanied by a deeply insightful book that provides an orientation to each chakra and offers thoughts, feelings, physical connections, and awareness and spiritual insights for each card. “I was a little uneasy doing a chakra reading since all I’ve ever read is tarot cards,” said one person after giving her first chakra reading, “but the stunning imagery and card titles, and the outstanding book that comes with the deck, allowed me to slide right into them.” The book’s wealth of insights can even inform your readings with Tarot cards.
This presentation describes the chakra essentials in ways that draw from the spiritual traditions of India and a from contemporary Western psychology.
