Towards a four-year course
In reflecting on current esoterically oriented topics, it appears that a quadrivium of subjects captures a rather full broad and deep (adult) education: philosophy; anthroposophy; ritual; and tarot (these are not listed in any particular order).
Each of these has a historical component as well as a spiritual or religious aspect. Tarot reflects art, imagination, beauty; anthroposophy reflects the scientific impulse, including its social and psychological aspects, mathematics, and the seeking for truth; ritual reflects sacred drama that includes the annual festivities that punctuate the calendar, as well as initiation rites and the good; through philosophy an inner core of spiritual understanding develops.
