With Reverend Geraldine Amaral

The light has come. I am under no Laws but God’s.
(Course in Miracles)

What exactly do we mean by the terms “Divine Metaphysics” and “Divine Law?” How does the Tarot relate to this belief system? In this unique class, Rev. Geraldine will offer an overview of Divine Metaphysical beliefs and some of the “Laws” of Divine Mind. She will also help us explore how a visual experience of the Laws can help us better understand and master them.

Divine Laws are the unchanging principles that rule our entire Universe. When we live in harmony with these principles and put them into practice, we develop ways to align ourselves with abundance, success, peace, and ease. The Tarot archetypes show us templates of both human and Divine patterns.
Join us as we explore how to use the Tarot “system” to understand and master Divine Law.
No experience with Tarot needed, just a desire to deepen your knowledge of Divine Metaphysics and Divine Law through the window of the Tarot archetypes. Bring your deck (all decks welcome) or decks will be provided for use during the class.
