Hermetic Conversations

  • Laying the Groundwork
    Christmas 2015—I suggested to a group of about nine of us who were working together on a soul-spiritual level in Peterborough, New Hampshire that we take into the Holy Nights the idea of taking up the request at the end of Meditations on the Tarot to pen 56 Letter-Meditations on the Minor Arcana of the…More

    Conversation—Part 1 Conversation—Part 2 Conversation—Part 3 Magician (from a friend in Finland) My medicine man, nature boy, sunshine of my cloudy days.

  • Knave of Cups
    A somewhat different approach: I will leave some initial impressions here, and then anyone is free to contribute via the comments… The conversation is now open… We begin by placing this image in the context of the entirety of the Suit of Cups, focusing the mantra SHE FEELS on the region of the heart. The…More
  • Knight of Cups
    In our work with the Knight of Cups, we are primarily bringing him (her?) into relationship with the 8th Arcanum, Justice. In terms of practice, this is related to the upward stream from the right shoulder (Peace) to the right side of the head (Light), the quality of Balance, and the Hebrew letter Chet. It…More
  • Queen of Cups
    In our work with the Queen of Cups, we are primarily bringing her into relationship with the 7th Arcanum, The Chariot. In terms of practice, this is related to the downward stream from the left side of the head (Warmth) to the left shoulder (Activity), the quality of Self Mastery, and the Hebrew letter Zayin.…More
  • King of Cups
    In our work with the King of Cups, we are primarily bringing him into relationship with the 6th Arcanum, The Lover. In terms of practice, this is related to the downward stream from the left side of the head (Warmth) to the heart (Glory), the quality of “Love of Neighbor”, and the Hebrew letter Vau.…More
  • Ace of Batons
    We begin by placing this image in the context of the entirety of the Suit of Batons, focusing the mantra HE WILLS on the region of the solar plexus. The reader is then encouraged to move the first part of the Inner Radiance Sequence, beginning with the mantra “In purest outpoured light radiates the Godhead…More
