Jung and the Tarot
Art Rosengarten, MA,PhD
Sunday, March 3, 2019, 4:00 - 6:00 pm
The Tarot is an intriguing symbol system emerging from the Italian Renaissance. Long associated with psychics and fortunetellers, its imagery is evocative, multi-layered, and remarkably rich psychologically. Through the 20th century, tarot’s evolution has been heavily influenced by Jungian thought, although ironically Jung’s writing on the subject is sparse. This lecture explores a Jungian approach to the deck of possibility.
Understand tarot’s psychological and therapeutic benefits as a tool of active imagination supplemental to talk therapy within the framework of Jungian analysis.
Describe modern tarot from the Jungian perspective, its indications and contraindications for usage as a psychotherapeutic instrument within an established container between therapist and client, similar to dreamwork or Sandplay in this respect.
Learn about the intersection of Jung’s theories pertaining to synchronicity, symbolism, archetypal imagery, etc. with the psychological and spiritually-grounded application of tarot cards in a therapeutic setting.
Art Rosengarten, MA, PhD, is a clinical psychologist in private practice, Director of Moonlight Counseling in north San Diego County, and teaches Live Online Tarot Seminars at MoonlightTarot.com. Among the leading scholars of modern Tarot in the world, he wrote the first accredited doctoral dissertation on Tarot as a method for accessing the unconscious and is a pioneer in the emerging discipline. He is one of only a few psychologists worldwide to have successfully implemented tarot card readings within his psychological practice, as a supplemental tool utilized at critical points in a person’s growth not unlike dream analysis or other tools of active imagination. He is author of five books on the tarot, including Tarot and Psychology: Spectrums of Possibility, Tarot of the Nine Paths: Advanced Tarot for the Spiritual Traveler, and his most recent work, Tarot of the Future: Raising Spiritual Consciousness.
