Bidding Farewell to Our Space & Going Pop-Up!

Due to a pretty hefty rent hike, The Esoterico Collective is about to become a free spirit starting in May!  We’ll continue to host monthly open houses and offer workshops, talks, and classes in spaces around the city,  Pop-Up Shop style. The final workshops in our space, Honing Body Intuition by iele paloumpis and Skeleton Key to the Tarot by Bobby Abate happened over the last week and were a great success! Check our Facebook page to keep up to date! http://facebook.com/esotericobrooklyn Host an Open House or Workshop! Our open houses will continue every month at various locations!  If have a space or know of one that would be into hosting an Esoterico Collective event please let us know! In the meantime, you can book private readings or sessions with any of members by sending us an email request!  We’ll keep you posted about our next events!

RACHEL POLLACK WORKSHOP: WHAT IS THE TAROT?

  The Esoterico Collective of Greenpoint is presenting an upcoming workshop by RACHEL POLLACK — Tarot Grandmaster, author of 36 books of fiction and non fiction, and tarot-deck creator. WHAT IS THE TAROT? SATURDAY NOVEMBER 15th, 1-5pm The Tarot is a tool for fortune-telling.  The Tarot is a game. The Tarot is an oracular mystery.  The Tarot is a mirror of our true selves.  The Tarot is a blueprint for transformation.  The Tarot is an ancient spiritual teaching in pictures.  The Tarot is a repository of myths and Gods and Goddesses.  The Tarot is a device for storytelling and creativity.  The Tarot is a guidance system for the soul. All these things have been said about the 78 cards that make up the Tarot, and all of them are true. In this workshop, we will explore the Tarot’s many dimensions.  We will consider just how a picture on a mass-produced card means something, and how that meaning changes over time, and how it adapts to an individual person’s issues and questions. For Rachel, the primary way of learning Tarot is through doing readings.  Readings are a constant exploration of the Tarot’s possibilities, propelled by the issues and questions of the querent.  We will look at different kinds of readings, from a simple daily spread, to relationship spreads, to readings crafted from a querent’s actual words, to what Rachel calls  Wisdom readings, where we ask the cards questions about the world, spiritual issues, or the Tarot itself. This workshop is experiential, and open to all levels.  Please bring your own Tarot deck.  All decks are welcome, but Rachel will focus primarily on the Rider-Waite-Smith deck (the most well-known), and her own Shining Tribe Tarot. RACHEL POLLACK is the author of 36 books of fiction and non-fiction, three of which have won awards.  Her book 78 Degrees of Wisdom is known all over the world as “the Bible of Tarot readers.”  Rachel’s books have been translated into 14 languages.  Her most recent work is the novel The Child Eater, and The Burning Serpent Oracle, a card deck and book co-created with artist Robert M. Place. SPACE IS LIMITED, SIGN UP NOW. $55 before October 31 $60 at the door 67 West Street, 4th Floor Brooklyn, NY 12723 PAYMENT: Cash, Check, or Paypal RSVP: zoemaat@hvc.rr.com & esotericobrooklyn.com

Hello friends, We are holding an open house to introduce to you, our friends and family, our plans for the future and to infuse our new shared space with loving vibes and to let you all know who we are and what we do! The COLLECTIVE: Bobby Abate, Risa Puleo, Jasmine Spacher, Valentine Lahey, Jamie Della Selva, Robyn Olds, Zina Tavitsanos, and Anais L’amour. Just briefly, The ESOTERICO COLLECTIVE began as a weekly meeting for tarot readers in a living room. Today, our collective has expanded to include those who have practices in astrology kabbalistic healing, body work, the I Ching, aura reading, stone work, and palmistry. For most members of the collective, our spiritual explorations run parallel to our careers as artists, filmmakers, dancers, musicians, and actors. This is what makes our collective unique. Beginning in October, we will share an intimate studio space in Greenpoint where we can meet, have social events, deepen our practices and share our talents. So come celebrate our new studio and hang out with us on Saturday, October 4th from 3-9 for wine, tea, mini-readings and ritual!!! We would love to see all of you!
