Mind's Eye Course
Learn about the Brain with Tarot Imagery
Many of us look around us and see images and patterns – that leads us to make associations and intuitive leaps.
In this 4 week course you will learn about how the brain processes images, the circuits behind the “minds eye”, intuition and insight.
We will use Tarot imagery as a focal point to understand more about the brain, neural circuits and how they come together to provide understanding and insight.
At the end of the course you will come away with
fundamental knowledge about brain circuitry behind visual imagery,
some vocabulary around neuroscience and
foundational concepts around neural development, signaling and circuits.
You will also gain some associative scientific insights into how images you see on cards help with intuition.
No background expected in either Neuroscience or Tarot.
Classes will be via Zoom online with occasional use of other technology. Sessions will be interactive with discussions, class exercises and plenty of doodles.
Classes meet virtually once a week every Saturday May 16th to June 6th at
12-1pm New York Time
