It’s time to learn to read the Tarot through a Jungian lens…

Jungian Perspective on the Tarot

A 5-class course that fuses the teachings of Carl Jung with the Tarot!

Discover how to use the Tarot as a tool to facilitate your inner work,
tap into the unconscious, and deepen your intuition.

Curious about all things intuition, divination, and individuation?


You’re in the right place.

According to Carl Jung, the purpose of all inner work is to further the individuation process… in other words, to become more whole within ourselves and connected to a sense of meaning and purpose.

If you’ve found yourself seeking answers to questions like:

What would it look like for me to get this job or this house?
How can I move forward with my career?
Should I be in this relationship?
What blind spots am I not seeing?
How can I be kinder to myself?
Why is this happening to me and what does it mean?

Tarot can be a powerful way to receive guidance about the past, the present, and the future.

Your own psyche has a continuous flow of images, and what the cards spark in you can be highly illuminating.

Imagine being able to:

  • Learn about the Tarot through the lens of Jung’s structure of the psyche
  • Use Tarot spreads to read the conditions of the present moment so that you can better predict the future
  • Tap into the hidden messages of the unconscious and build a meaningful relationship with your inner world
  • Gain awareness of your defense mechanisms so you can break down resistance move with the flow of life
  • Enhance your discernment and deepen your intuition
  • And so much more!

Your Tarot adventure begins today.

“Ken James was absolutely phenomenal. He knows the material so well, explains it so well and from the get-go I could use the skills he taught.”

Ken James


Kenneth James, Ph.D. is a Jungian Analyst, Master Tarot Reader, and teacher who has led workshops around the world on the relationship between divination and synchronicity, and on the use of the Tarot to explore the unconscious. 

Ken received a Ph.D. in Communicative Sciences and Disorders from Northwestern University, a Diploma in Analytical Psychology from the C.G. Jung Institute of Chicago. He is the founder and director of The Soulwork Center, dedicated to facilitating the process of individuation through Jungian teachings.

Ken’s studies of the Tarot began at an early age when he was introduced to the notion of divination by an elderly aunt from Scotland who read tea leaves. 

In this course, Ken synthesizes Jungian concepts with Tarot to give you a fresh perspective on individuation and divination. 

Explore the unconscious. Deepen your intuition.

An excellent entré to using the Tarot for personal reflection and meditation that supports your own work of individuation – especially if you are looking to develop your vocabulary of symbols and sensitivity to intuition.”

“Excellent course. Insightful and interesting. I enjoyed it and learned from it. Highly recommend.”

“Ken James was so articulate and organized. He was so well-spoken, clear and accessible.”

“The subject material, the breadth and depth of it was top quality, even for experienced Tarot practitioners.”

“I’d recommend this course for people no matter what your experience with Tarot is. Ken offers some fresh ideas plus reinforces what is traditionally taught when it comes to Tarot and its use. His explanation of synchronicity and how that relates to divination was especially resonant for me as someone who felt it but did not have the words to describe it.”

“I loved learning specific spreads and having demonstrations! Also talking about the different ways to look at each suite including typology.”

“Ken was great at guiding us toward our own conclusions.”

“I enjoyed the reflections of Jungian ideas and the Tarot and the way that was presented. Also, the focus on ‘seeing’ the cards intuitively instead of going directly to interpretations was done very well. Generally, I enjoyed the structure of the program. At the end I felt excited about delving more into the Tarot as a vehicle for developing both a deeper intuitive relationship with my interior world and some ideas of how to use my personal image-making to create art pieces that reflect what speaks to me in exploring these things.”

“The lectures were engaging and informative. I learned so much from them and also the readings.”

“I love how prepared Ken was. He had awesome powerpoints, knew his material and was so helpful. This wasn’t an off the cuff course, it was well-planned with a lot of experience. Awesome presenter!”

“The content was presented in a practical manner for learning. I appreciated the development process used to educate about the Tarot and how to use it.”

“Ken James was personable, invitational and full of information.”

“Really enjoyed Ken, the teacher’s style and pace – how his lessons and points flowed and built on each other. I also liked his balance between fact and intuition and the homework exercises to make it real for us – which I’m still doing daily!”

“It was an excellent way to learn to use the Tarot as a stimulus for accessing what’s inside your own psyche.”

A deeper relationship with your inner world awaits.
