The Museum is set in an enchanting historical building of 1600, completely restored, situated between Bologna and Pistoia, among the woods.
This building, apart from being a rich permanent collection, offers a series of cultural events and exhibitions which will be organized not only inside the Museum, but also in the other centres.
Each visit will be a real surprise, also because it is personalized. In fact, Morena and Ernesto will accompany you inside this forest of symbols, all to discover….and for this reason please remember that reservation is needed.
Looking forward to seeing you!!!!!

XIV - Temperanza/Temperance:
- Mahanirvana Tantra
Santosh is 41 years of age and has worked with Tarot for 12 years of research, learning and development. He has also got some insight of astrology, numerology, palmistry and other medium of divination. These subjects has been a hobby from the time he was 17.Five years ago I met some like minded friends who encouraged him to take this learning to next level. So the idea of developing a tarot deck was formed. According to him tarot is a good medium to connect with your inner self/inner voice. He has authored a book Discovering Tarot...” A Tool to be in terms with Life” that contains the basic insight about tarot, created for people as a meditative tool to create awareness of the basic gifts that each humans are given. He has also created a deck Nature Whisper…(A Whisper can bring hope) - a 78 card non-traditional deck merged to find the traditional card energy in natures form with traditional and non-traditional names and their elements on it.
The spiritual sustainer of all lives at all levels of being has a contented understanding that we have access t o the spiritual energy needed to bring about a change in any aspect of our life that has slipped out of balance. The lotus is a symbol of duality and transcendence - each petal a part of your spiritual understanding, yet the stem anchors it to the earth and makes the growth of the lotus healthy and vigorous. That force comes from within you, from the mundane body, the 'Me' and you can achieve many marvelous things such as healing or using the force to help you through your life. You are developing your spirit, the real you, the 'I', representing the lotus as the duality of 'I' and 'Me' as one. Almost from your first birth you have loved with the duality of the spirit living in the body shell, 'I' and 'Me'. In some ways there is a conflict between two parts of your being, yet each needs the other. 'Me' is the source of physical demands, constantly pushing you, wanting attention. 'Me' wants to be fed, 'Me' is tough in looking out for itself against the world for the whole of your life. 'Me' has the opinion that if 'I' turns its back 'Me' will become possessed and will die and 'Me' doesn't want to die. It has the bodily appetites still to fulfill. It is all about convincing 'Me' that 'I' having its own time represents no9 threat and will actually be beneficial to '[Me' because during 'I's trip it will be looking for things that will help 'Me' satisfy the majority of 'Me's immediate demands and then say, its time for 'I'. If you don't let 'I' go, 'I' will be mad at 'Me' and will in future not satisfy 'Me's appetites. Its whole idea is to focus all the attention into a single point in time for one instance. It is about learning to design to raise your force and to teach you to control your body functions. As the lotus petals open they reach upwards and outwards, gathering in the sunlight and dewy moisture that gives them life. You too can reach out and develop spiritual communication and absorb the psychic energy to revitalize your life.
The Indian Tantras are numerous and constitute the Scripture (Shastra) of the Kaliyuga, Shiva says: "For the benefit of men of the Kali age, men bereft of energy and dependent for existence on the food they eat, the doctrine, O auspicious one! is given". To the Tantra we must therefore look if we would understand aright both ritual, yoga, and sadhana of all kinds, as also the general principles of which these practices are but the objective expression. Mahanirvana Tantra is the Tantra of Great Liberation, translated by Arthur Avalon in1913. The card depicts the sadhak in posture with the lotus opening and the spiritual fire being stirred inside that invokes the kundalini energy to rise upwards. The darkness on one side and the light on the other side of the picture present the two opposites that await unison.
