Course Overview

This course is intended for those who wish to work as professional Tarot Readers or who wish to learn the deep Occult secrets hidden within the cards.

The Tarot is a profound system for asking the spiritual realm for answers to questions.  The reason it works so well is that it is a very deep system of spiritual knowledge.  This course opens the door to that knowledge.

This course is for people who want to:

  • know the Tarot to a high degree.
  • become world-class professional-grade Tarot readers, able to give mind-blowing readings every time
  • learn Hermeticism
  • learn Astrology
  • learn Kabbalah
  • study Occultism
  • develop high-level psychic intuition

Tarot calls to people who seek a deeper knowledge.

“This Tarot course has been a really great learning experience and it has changed my life for the better as it supports your own personal development too. I am enjoying the content as well as meeting like-minded people.” – Leoni K.

Our Tarot training course combines psychic development, meditations, and knowledge to make you a Tarot reader of high degree.

This is one of the most in-depth courses available in the world.  It works on multiple levels – intellectual, intuitive, spiritual.

This is how Tarot is taught inside Western Mystery Schools, combining psychic development with intellectual teachings.

“I really enjoyed the Professional Tarot course. Owen is so knowledgeable on the course content, I didn’t expect to have access to so much great material and information. I was glad to be able to attend via Zoom as we had such a mix of people from Europe and beyond. There was always great support from Majella and the team at Green Tara. I would absolutely recommend this course and am looking forward to attending the I Ching course in May. It has opened up a new and exciting portal in these challenging times globally.” – Clare R.

The Tarot is alive

For us, the Tarot are a living spiritual force.  Our cards are not possessions, but friends.  We do not “use” them, we partner with them.

It is possible to memorize a few meanings for each card, and use those to interpret the cards.  Or you can form deep connections to the cards, so that they speak to you during readings.  They teach you their ways in your daily life.  They can inspire you and bring their strengths to you, walking side by side with you through your spiritual journey.  By the end of the course you will not be “interpreting” the cards – you will know them deeply.

“A great course, bringing participants on a deep journey into the Tarot Universe. I really enjoyed it and am left with a curiosity and desire to travel further with my new Tarot companions. Owen is a fount of knowledge and enthusiastically shares his wisdom. I recommend this course to anyone interested in either starting or deepening their relationship with Tarot.” – Lyn D.

A spiritual connection

Using guided visualizations, meditations and training in psychic energy, students develop a spiritual connection to the Angel of the Tarot.  As taught in Western Mystery schools, this enables the reader to access an infinite pool of Tarot wisdom.  This becomes a source of on-going wisdom in your life, while also enabling you to give mind-blowing Tarot readings every time.

“Where do I start…. This is the very best course done in a holistic approach to learning to connect with the Tarot. It tied in critically related avenues to help the student fully appreciate and comprehend the Tarot. Owen crafted a beautifully designed course that brought in – Jung, Kabbalah (prior to this course was unaware of the Christian version of this study), Hermeticism, astrology, and occultism. It’s an excellent blend that strikes at a combination between mediation practices, spiritual connection, and increased connection with your intuition.  I took the class with the intent of learning more about the Tarot from an intellectual aspect but also to develop my intuition for the Tarot as well. The materials Owen has amassed and created over time are impressive and added value to the course. Overall, I loved this course due to its depth and breadth, plus the greater connection with the Tarot.” – Michelle M.

The Tarot is a system of Deep Knowledge

The Tarot combines the main knowledge systems of Western Occultism and Hermeticism, especially Kabbalah, Alchemy, Astrology, Numerology, Metaphysics and Mythology.  We teach all these topics in the course, showing how they are combined to create the Tarot.

“This course has gone above and beyond my expectations! There is no stone left uncovered, and Owen is an amazing teacher, with so much knowledge and experience with the tarot and occultism. This course teaches you everything from the basic understanding of the cards, to how to learn the cards from intuition and psychic skills, to the deeper meaning of the cards and so much more. I especially love that Owen provides many additional resources, which allows you to go even deeper into the mysteries and depths if you so choose.” – Sara B.

Includes how to read the Tarot remotely via Zoom, Whatsapp or Skype.

The course covers the Tarot in depth, together with psychic development training to enable you to act as an intuitive Tarot counselor.

The Tarot is also one of the world’s greatest encyclopedia’s.  The Tarot is not a random system of images, but a detailed encyclopedia of Occult knowledge written in symbols and numbers.  This course will teach you many of the secrets hidden within.

We do not believe each card has a single meaning, which merely needs to be memorized in order to give readings. Each card has a central theme which can hold a huge variety of meanings, and it requires a combination of knowledge and intuition to fully interpret each them in a reading.

We believe the Tarot is a profound and deep meta-spiritual system which offers both a path of personal development and service to others. Many people feel that being a Tarot Reader is part of who they are rather than just something they do. This course offers such an option to those who would choose it.

This course includes over 25 hours of guided visualizations.  Some will be given in the class, but you will also be able to play these at home through your phone or computer.

“Owen was amazing throughout this course in the way he explained various aspects of Tarot, the content in the course was perfect and very informative too. He is a great tutor and explains the questions that we students put to him very clearly until we understood exactly what was going on. I loved the layout of the course, it flowed easily and yet brought us to a complete understanding as it all came together at the end. Thank you, Owen I am so grateful I now have a deeper understanding of Tarot and I am using what I have learned too. Thanks again.” – Ashling.

No experience or knowledge is required in order to attend this course. However, the training is intensive and in-depth and therefore requires commitment and dedication.

This course will to train you to an extremely high level.

By the end of this course you will have an extremely detailed and broad knowledge of the Tarot – together with solid professional-grade Tarot reading skills.

You will be fully capable of entering the world of the Professional Tarot Reader with confidence and expertise.

Becoming a Tarot reader of the highest order is more than just learning the cards, it is a journey of personal development.

“An excellent course. I’m learning far more than I ever thought I would on a Tarot course, as the content is so in-depth & varied, covering many interesting & engaging themes. Very highly recommended!” – Fiona O.

Western Mystery School

This course will also interest those looking for a Western Mystery School, teaching the secrets of Hermeticism.  The course provides in-depth training in Kabbalah, Astrology and Hermeticism.

“I highly recommend the Professional Tarot course with Owen Roberts at Green Tara College. I got to know the Tarot cards in a very new way – through personal experience and through the knowledge and research that Owen brought from many disciplines like Kabbala, Astrology and Mystery schools. It feels like I have been welcomed into a modern mystery school – I’m very grateful and feel that the images and experiences will live on and will develop more as I engage more with the Tarot cards.” – C.S.

Closely related to Jung, and your own path through this course.  A very important book for understanding human experience (especially on spiritual paths).  It outlines the Hero’s Journey, a universal pattern of adventure and transformation that runs through virtually all of the world’s mythic traditions. Many have related this to the Fool’s journey through the Major Arcana.  Personally, I don’t agree that the Major Arcana form such a narrative.  However, it is a very important discussion in Tarot circles, so – agree or disagree – you need to be aware of it.  We will discuss this in detail during the course.

The Hero with A Thousand Faces (OPTIONAL)

“Really amazing stuff and way more than I was expecting when I signed up. This course is extremely informative on many different topics and not just the tarot. But all the information related back to the tarot and all made sense together. Owen is a great teacher and very well informed on many different areas and brings great perspective into his teachings through his hard work and from his own spiritual gifts and intuition. Great stuff!” – Shauna B
