"Meditations On the Tarot" Study Group

Catland Books is excited to announce a new weekly book club and study group based on a masterpiece of Hermetic writing, "Meditations on the Tarot."

This dense, poetic tome was published anonymously and posthumously at the request of the author, who from the prose seems to be a Roman Catholic scholar. The epistolary text deeply examines the 22 trumps of the Major Arcana in a series of 22 letters addressed to the reader, each beginning with the words "Dear Unknown Friend..."

At once intellectually rigorous, lyrically readable, and ripe with spiritual profundity, these friendly letters explore the Tarot as 22 spiritual exercises which will lead the reader to firsthand experiences of mysticism, gnosis, and magic.

Indispensable for the aspiring high magician, the thirsty philosopher, and the serious student of Tarot, the only problem with these letters is how to discuss them in a mere hour and a half. Please join us on Thursday the 13th when we will introduce everyone to the text and discuss where to begin collectively enjoying and exploring what will almost certainly prove to be an inexhaustible piece of writing.

Attendance is donation based; we suggest $5-$15, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. You do not need a copy of the book for the first week! Classes will continue Thursdays weekly through the fall and winter. Each class stands alone and can be attended singularly or as part of the full series.
