Archetypal Wisdom from Christian Hermeticism
and the Journey of the Soul
Led by Lynn Bauman and Ward Bauman
From its beginnings, Christianity has expressed multiple streams of wisdom that coalesced around the teachings of Jesus. Early Jewish, Apocalyptic and Platonic understandings contributed to its wisdom teaching, as well as sources that are not as familiar to us today such as Hermeticism. The stream of wisdom known as Hermeticism has played an important role throughout the centuries as a system of signs, and more recently has been reexamined by an important modern visionary—Valentin Tomberg in Meditations on the Tarot: A Journey into Christian Hermeticism. We will enter this stream together through a form of learning using archetypes and methodologies congruent with the stream itself which fully engage the whole human person as we make this critical journey of the soul through space and time. Our work will focus upon the third and fourth Arcana or archetypes, in particular.
Here’s what reviewers have said about Meditations on the Tarot and its contribution to contemplative prayer in the Christian tradition:
