Introduction to Tarot Cards Tarot Class by Michele Introduction to the Tarot The course will be generic in nature and will not be keyed to any specific deck.

Gnosis - The Awakening | Special Interest Arts make students smart When children are physically active and creative, they tend to focus better and work more enthusiastically with the rest of the curriculum. Arts, sport, music and drama are often viewed as fun extra-curricular activities for children but are given less importance compared with core subjects such as English, science, or mathematics. The arts should be taken seriously as a source of inspiration, as a way of life - Nataša Pantović Nevertheless, numerous studies prove that practising arts, music and sport from an early age improves brain activity, self-confidence, and gives students an overall sense of well-being. Students who consistently practise sport, arts, music, drama, and dance, are usually more creative and innovative and also perform better academically. Physical education programmes can influence the way children view physical fitness when they grow older, how they relate to their body and overall health. Many team sports require children to work together to achieve a common goal.

The Occult All Religions are One One of two known impressions of the title page from All Religions are One, printed c1795 All Religions are One is the title of a series of philosophical aphorisms by William Blake, written in 1788. Following on from his initial experiments with relief etching in the non-textual The Approach of Doom (1787), All Religions are One and There is No Natural Religion represent Blake's first successful attempt to combine image and text via relief etching, and are thus the earliest of his illuminated manuscripts. Relief etching Page 2 of The Ghost of Abel (1822); note the writing in the colophon at bottom right. Frustrated with this method, Blake seems to have begun thinking about a new method of publishing at least as early as 1784, as in that year a rough description of what would become relief etching appears in his unpublished satire, An Island in the Moon. Blake could also colour the plates themselves in coloured inks before pressing them or tint them with watercolours after printing.
