Tarosophist Tarot Degree-Style Program

The Hekademia

Discover the most comprehensive Tarot course in the world, written from 35 years experience and the highest academic standard. You will see unpublished and rare material from private and academic libraries, covering the last century of Tarot and more.

This Degree-style course takes 2 years and is the pinnacle of Tarot training.

Modules in Waite-Smith symbolism, the Thoth deck, Oracle Decks, Professional considerations, Numerology, the Mythic Journey, Kabbalah, and many other aspects provide a well-balanced education in Tarot for divination and personal discovery.

There are two years worth of weekly recorded videos (over 110 hours of direct tarot teaching) in the Hekademia waiting for your discovery and additional guest lecturers throughout the two-year program including leading authors and teachers Rachel Pollack, Mary K. Greer, Robert Place, Enrique Enriquez, Barbara Moore, and many leading names and authors in Tarot.

The course is created and delivered by leading author Marcus Katz, co-founder of the Tarot Association and with 35 years experience of verified reading and study of tarot, with over 50 ground-breaking books on the subject.

The course is suitable for absolute beginners and advanced students alike, as it introduces new ways of looking at tarot that you will not find anywhere else, based on the Tarosophy practical approach supported by absolutely original research.

We use the latest on-line training technologies to assure you of an engaging, fun and fulfilling experience. In 2019 we migrated the entire course (a process that took 4 months, due to the amount of material) to a new platform which makes it playable on any device, including mobiles!

What students say …

These classes just blew me away! The course is the perfect blend of… everything! I am speechless, I guess!

Excellent Classes. A very good mix of history and practical.

Good classes with lots to think about. Now I’ve got a little bit of a better understanding of the connection between the Tree of Life and the Tarot.

I loved it, just can’t get over how beautiful those cards [Trinick/Waite] are!

Such impressive classes. As others have pointed out, it’s a testament to how rich a language the tarot is. I believe at one point tonight, Marcus referred to it as the Language of the Soul, a phrase I noted at the time as one that is a marvellous expression of the many aspects of tarot.

I still cannot believe the depth and range of the Tarot we have covered in the first term.

Well, as someone said toward the end of one class, I can’t wait to do homework. When the heck have we ever said THAT before?
