Tonight, a topic about which Bob is writing a book: the Western System of soul centers, what we can call the "chakras" in English. We will use the Tarot to analyze & heal the centers.
Most people believe that the chakra system is something we borrowed from India in the 20th century, but we have had similar systems since ancient Greece. It is connected to common sevenfold aspects of our culture, such as the seven days of the week, the seven notes of the scale, the seven virtues, & seven vices.
Bob gave a workshop on this at the Readers Studio and an advanced workshop on it in New York last November. He will be repeating that workshop on Saturday, January 29.
And congratulations, Bob, for being invited to be the main presenter at the World Tarot Conference in Chicago in July 2012!
