About the workshop:

What can the esoteric sciences offer to our poetry? Both inspiration or ideas and (as Carl Jung noted) a rich context of symbols. In this workshop we will quickly consider a few systems (astrology, numerology, palmistry, tea leaves, Tarot) to see what poetic responses they provoke, from meditation to rejection.
