The Rabbi's Tarot by Daphna Moore is used throughout The Know Thyself Initiative and is featured in STAGE 4 of KTI. As such, it is an absolute requirement to complete the remaining stages and is the most thorough study of the esoteric Kabbalistic teaching behind the 22 Major Arcana cards. The story of how The Rabbi’s Tarot came into print starts with a rabbi giving it to ex-Jesuit priest who studied it for 40 years, before anonymously giving it to Daphna. Anyway, she is the best person to explain the process:
"After studying spiritualism, astrology, numerology, tarot, and belonging to many self-help groups, I was given a treatise, by someone who wished to remain anonymous, with the agreement I would study it and add to it my understanding of life and its meaning; or I would publish its completion and make it available for the world. The Rabbi’s Tarot is the tool that freed me from all my past belief systems. I came to understand through studying this material that by discovering the beliefs we hold, we find the beliefs that hold us. It is only after this discovery that we are free to hold beliefs. Few are able to tame the beast of belief within and be his master, but with The Rabbi’s Tarot and its secret teachings, you can become masterful. Each day I arise saying, I am grateful for life and this moment.”
Ancient Teachings on the EGO: in Daphna Moore’s RABBI’S TAROT
Daphna last revised and published her book in 2007 with a limited printing. Those books are now gone. That is why we moved the teachings forward with her consent and blessing into Ancient Teachings on the EGO: in Daphna Moore’s RABBI’S TAROT With Additional Commentary From Suzzan Babcock. This book ( 8.5 X 11 binding ) preserves her last edition in its entirety. We reformatted it only slightly by adding emphasis to important points and italics to some cards mentioned. For instance, any reference to another card other than the card of that chapter is italicized. Suzzan’s ADDITIONAL COMMENTARY became a separate section following the SYMBOLISM segment for each Major Arcana Card.
Through specific guidance, Suzzan recolored all the cards in alignment with Daphna’s highlighting of particular colors and/or features of cards in the SYMBOLISM section. Therefore, throughout the book we have used this new deck in the graphics and illustrations. It should come as no surprise the new deck is the RWS–Rabbi’s Tarot.
Daphna Moore's thoughts on the new releases:
In this book resides the following sentence. 'The teaching of Tarot and the esoteric teaching of Scripture narrative is that the self-conscious, by assiduous endeavor, may bring into your body (and your body is your self-conscious) more and more of the superconscious in the form of Cosmic Mind-Stuff.' It is this Cosmic Mind-Stuff, an energetic manifestation of sorts, which finds its way into our world when allowed. I believe it found not only the Rabbi and the Priest before me, but also Suzzan in its effort of coming forth for all humanity.
THE ALCHEMICAL WEDDING OF CHRISTIAN ROSENKREUTZ REFLECTIONS ON THE THIRD MANIFEST
The Alchemical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz, written by Valentin Andrea in 1616 is the third Manifest in the group of three, calling for a scientific and social reform.
Christian Rosenkreutz is given an invitation by an Angel to take to the road to find the castle where the wedding of a King and Queen will take place.
The story is the allegorical journey that every human being undertakes to unite with his or her Higher Self and purified Soul. Though the story is already more than 400 years old, it has not lost anything of its actuality. The story is divided into seven days that tell in detail how the initiation of modern man takes place. The author discusses each day in great detail and its relevance to our time. This brings the story out of its allegorical and mythical context into a new perspective that we can understand.
The book is aimed at all those of us that want to develop a deeper insight into life and no longer want to be swept through life by the incomprehensible waves of destiny.
