The School of Oracles presents:

Palmistry Class with Ellen Goldberg

Hand SymbolAn in-depth, 45 lesson, Palmistry class will begin on Sept 9, 2014. This class will meet on Tuesday evenings in Manhattan’s West Village, from 7:15 pm to 9:00 pm. Everything one needs to become a skilled reader will be thoroughly covered.

Palmistry is both an art and a science. It is based on scientific principles that can be learned by anyone. The hand is called ‘God’s Road Map,’ and is one of the most valuable tools we have for guidance. Palmistry's use as a means of psychological insight and divination dates back thousands of years. Knowledge of Palmistry will enrich the lives of all with whom you come in contact.

There is a key in Palmistry to understanding the mystery between fate and free will. Palmistry proclaims that character is destiny. Your work on yourself is of great value because the hand changes as you change. The hand is an up to the minute report from your own Higher Self, and shows that the Higher Spiritual Forces are caring, and want you to have guidance. The story of your life is right at your fingertips. The palm shows how you are doing in many areas of life, including health, love and financial security. It reveals your talents, strengths and weaknesses. It indicates the most suitable careers and lifestyles for a fulfilling life. The hand is a mirror of the soul.

About the Classes
The class begins at 7:15pm and is one hour and forty-five minutes in length. We will meet three to four times a month.

Tarot at Halloween: The Best Time to Open Our Channels of Receptivity

channelres Halloween arrives at the midpoint between the fall equinox and the winter solstice when ancient lore tells us the “veil between the worlds” is at its thinnest, and divination can therefore be most potent. It is an excellent time for turning inwards and ideal for developing one’s intuition using the Tarot, a living oracle rooted in the Western Hermetic tradition that permits us to communicate with levels of consciousness not ordinarily available to our conscious minds. Tonight we will use discussion, trance, and meditation to work with some of the archetypal images of the Tarot especially powerful at opening pathways to our unconscious and our inner wisdom.

Note: Tarot enthusiasts at all levels, from beginning to advanced, welcome. The Rider Waite deck will be used as the basis of discussion, but you may bring and work with any favorite deck.
