We begin our journey up the Tree of Life from the world we live in: the world of manifestation, Malkuth. This series of six sessions examines the lowest four Sephiroth (Spheres) of the Tree of Life and their connecting Paths. We will learn the basic kabbalistic symbolism of the Tree, including the names, colors and astrological associations of the Sephiroth, and the Hebrew letters and translations of the Paths to augment our levels of understanding of the tarot correspondences. Focusing on a collegial format grounded in the sharing of knowledge, we will ponder the symbolism of each sephirah, then extrapolate the meaning of the paths that connect them. Take-home exercises using tarot spreads to further explore this symbolism will be provided.
