RIVIERA TAROT CONFERENCE Torquay - 27 October 2012 John Matthews

John Matthews will be giving a workshop at the Riviera Tarot Conference.....



In 1994 researchers in Italy discovered a manuscript bearing the name Michael de Nostradame, better known as Nostradamus - possibly the greatest prophet to have ever lived. In the manuscript were 98 paintings of a mysterious nature, and John Matthews and Wil Kinghan immediately recognised these as the basic constituents of an unfinished tarot. Together they set out to recreate this forgotten deck. The result is The Lost Tarot of Nostradamus.

In this two part presentation John Matthews will introduce this brand new tarot with an exploration of the images, telling the story of the work that went into creating it, and continuing with an opportunity to work with the new spreads specially created for it.

Discover for yourself the power of this amazing combining of the greatest prophet of the Renaissance and the predictive wisdom of the tarot.

Part One: The Recreation of the Lost Tarot - a PowerPoint presentation exploring the archetypes of the manuscript paintings and their use in the restored tarot.

Part Two: The Alchemist - a chance to do some hands on work in groups, using one or more of the spreads specially created for the new deck.

Time permitting John will also informally present during the weekend a ‘first look’ at his next Tarot deck - The Steampunk Tarot (2013).

He will also be available for a limited number of one to one readings on a strictly first-come basis.
