INTRO to TAROT IN THEORY and PRACTICE
820 w. 8th ave
(near the corner of 8th & Santa Fe)
Open the Book of Thoth, the 'Tarot of the Egyptians', for yourself! Bring a Tarot deck if you own one; Thoth deck is ideal but any will do.
Zintel encourages all to explore the mysteries of the Tarot by cracking the basic code within its pages. As a collection of art concepts compiled by sages through the ages it helps one tap into the Collective Unconscious
. Come explore the Thoth Deck as created by the Lady Frieda Harris
under the conceptual direction of Aleister Crowley. By learning the mnemonic keys the Book transforms from mysterious collections of art into a readable mirror of the mind!

Having worked, learned and taught at various Temples & Lodges of H.O.O.R. around the country, he brings a unique blend of passion, synthesis and distillation from various cultures and mythologies.
