“The Tarot – an Evolutionary Model” with James Mahoney, will be a presentation – and discussion – of its basic structure, and its relations to astrology and the Hebrew “Tree of Life”. He will explore questions about what the Tarot “reveals” – as a complex set of symbols and a kind of model for conscious evolution.
James Mahoney is a graduate of Harvard University, and has been engaged in the study of the Tarot since his freshman year in college. This study has led him to the practice of astrology and investigations into Hebrew mysticism, along with 19th century occultism which refined – and complicated- the Tarot’s nature and significance. Mr Mahoney is a Washington-based artist, writer and independent curator who is currently an Affiliate Professor of Visual Art at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.
