Tarot, as a system of Initiation to higher dimensions, or the ‘illumined realms’ of the alchemists  and mystics, has its roots in the temples of ancient Egypt. 

The Greek philosopher Iamblichus  writes  of a 22-stage process  taking place in a secret temple under the Sphinx,  which  exactly defines  the journey of the Tarot Arcana.
Today, as we  stand upon the threshold of previously unawakened dimensions of human ability and consciousness,  these  higher worlds become more readily  accessible  through working with Tarot.

In the recent liminal space, in which collective spirituality has surged, the system and study  of Tarot has reached a new powerful  relevance for the evolving  consciousness of humankind.

Katy and Sherene invite you back to the temple at the Pyramids, in full view of the Sphinx and the Kali Temple in Kerala to explore and explain the eternal wisdom of Tarot in your own life.

The Major, or Greater Arcana of Tarot, marks out a 21 stage map of gathering consciousness and wisdom which realizes its completion only to reconcile with its beginning. In a numerical series of beautiful, bold images, it depicts the endlessness of spiritual evolution through human experience as it explains the nature of humanities relationship with the divine.

Lying above and beyond this sequence, the Unnumbered Fool, or Zero sings of the Pure Breath or free spirit of the  whole system, the quest for the Numinous, the secret knowledge of the Unseen which brings us to the Tarot and keeps us growing and learning  within its magic.



If you can't make the live seminars, you will recieve the recordings to watch at your leisure.

The 22 Trumps of the Major Arcana depict an archetypal 21 stage journey of consciousness with the Unnumbered Fool as its essence and inspiration. we all begin at the precipice and this is where many of us find ourselves at this very moment.

In this course the journey is understood in four stages. Beginning with the quest for Absolute Essence via the Fool and moving into the 21 Major Trumps as a deepening Triad of Sevens.

In 22 Days the mystery of your True Self will be revealed, understood, integrated and lived through the magic of these archetypal realms. We will dialogue and dance with these inner gods and goddesses as they awaken us to our true potential and co-creative power in this sacred life as it unfolds layer by layer, key by key.

Katy and sherene have been working and teaching with the tarot with students over the past several decades. They will fuse their wisdom and experience. Katy will bring you the essence of her teachings via the egyptian mysteries and sherene will infuse her jungian background in the decoding of these infinitely powerful archetypes of our psyche. we may think we are making this up, but they are making us up and living through us in ways wonderfully incomprehensible. 

I signed up for the Temple of Tarot without really knowing what I was getting into. But isn't that the way it is with Life! 
We dont know what we are getting into.
Sherene is brilliant at weaning together mystical and mythical traditions.
And Katy's exuberant joy, wisdom and love is palpable and present through both time and space, even on Zoom.

In the Temple of the Tarot intensive, Sherene and Katy took us out into the cosmos and circled us back down to Earth to ground deeply. Brought to us via Zoom from India and Egypt, we saw live views of the actual pyramids in Egypt where Katy lives and peeked into Sherenes’ life in the ashram with Amma, her beloved guru and Chico her pet crow.  The classes were interactive, and questions encouraged. The deepening of my understanding of how the tarot cards interact and a new heightened sense of awe about the unseen magic of the cosmos has made me hungry for more!  It was a blast to listen and learn from them both, and I found myself counting the days until our next session. I learned something unexpected and brand new in every class and came away with a deeper understanding of the interconnection of astrology and the cards. I felt as if esoteric wisdom was being gently unveiled in a fun, honest way. Both women shared from their hearts, and they held space beautifully for our internationally diverse group of students; all coming from different levels of mastery with either astrology or the tarot. Katy told her dramatic mythic Egyptian stories and taught us many esoteric ways to do tarot spreads and Sherene brought in the power of the stars and their connection to the cards through her brilliant knowledge of the archetypes and her Jungian expertise! Having Sherene and Katy tag team our teaching sessions allowed all their magnificent knowledge and excitement about tarot to create alchemical magic within our group. I couldn’t say which part of this duo I enjoyed more- but just know that I do want more!

Sherene’s unconventional Jungian inspired approach to our therapeutic process spoke to my creative spirit. She was able to hold our work in a safe container that allowed me to explore
all of my past and present and gave me the ability to see my potential future too. Once I began this transformational work with her, I shared it (Sherene) with everyone I knew! All of my good friends in the business saw Sherene and you could see the immense impact of her work.  
After nine years of analysis with Sherene, I can say that I still have tools and inspiration I hold/carry with me today. This work is priceless! The gift that keeps giving!
If this important work with Sherene had not taken place, I know I would not have ended up where I am today. I am blessed to be in a successful loving, supportive marriage and had a ‘dream come true’ career.
I continue to ‘find myself’ and ‘reinvent' myself on a daily basis and give so much of the credit to Sherene. She has a gift! 
I owe alot to this fine and highly recommended teacher and guide.

Katy has developed an incredible system of the tarot and Egyptian mysteries that embodies an understanding of the divine and its many facets and relationships.  It was beautiful to learn from her as the structure of her understanding of the tarot unfolded and took my on a journey to both appreciate human nature and to remember it through story and Katy’s love and enthusiasm for the subject.
