Exploring the Tarot Pathways on the Tree of Life
In 1999 Derek started the "School of Living Kabbalah" in Denmark, where the main
focus has been the 1-year course, "Exploring the Tarot Pathways on the Tree of

courses over the past 3 years is now being made available to a wider audience.
It has been redesigned to meet the requirements of an exciting new Correspondance
Course that integrates the Tarot cards upon the Tree of Life with its 10 Spheres and
Each of the 22 Pathways provides the connection through which different areas of our
psyche are joined together, producing bridges of energy communication. And each of
the 22 Major keys of the Tarot find their placement upon one of these pathways. Each
tarot image is the symbol of the journey that will eventually produce a fusion of
both ends of the pathway.
For most persons the Tarot and the Kabbalah represent two completely different
symbol systems - and yet the truth is that the tarot cards, the full deck of 78
cards, originated in the Tree of Life. The Tree is a diagram of Creation - and the
inspiration behind our Western Mystery traditions.
It is a wonderful working method for creating increased unity & wholeness and Derek
has dedicated more than 22 years living with these concepts and bringing them into a
form of teaching that enables all sincere students to enjoy the simplicity and
richness of the subject. There is a great synthesis at work within this
Correspondance Course which brings together the disciplines of a great variety of
occult sciences - tarot, Kabbalistic teachings, modern psychology, astrology,
numerology, magic, alchemical studies, angelic invocations, healing, visualization &

Is not all this information available in the many books
available on the market?
Much knowledge can be gained by reading some of the wonderful books, both old & new,
on the subject of the Tree of Life and The Shining Paths - and a suitable Booklist
will be recommended when you start your journey.
Yet what makes this Course so special is that it doesn't exist anywhere else in this
unique form! The Correspondance Course is therefore presented in an original and
mature form - not just a collection of interesting informations, but a true living
synthesis that leads students quickly into the core issues of the Tree, the pathways
and their personal relationships with the energies represented by these areas. Many
complex concepts can be made easier when a teacher shows you the Path - then your
task is to work and experience that Pathway. What this practically means is that you
are expected to produce a written response to the questions that you will be asked
at the end of each Lesson.
This anchors your perceptions and deepens your
understanding of the material. Your tutor then responds to your answers and provides
feedback, so that the unfolding process is both exciting and challenging. Derek's
experience is available to you as a companion guide & friend along the Path.
