The cards have been described as The 22 Steps to Freedom; The Path of the Spiritual Warrior; The Sacred Procession; The Path of Self-understanding.
The origins of the Tarot are shrouded in mystery, myth and speculation. The Ancien Tarot de Marseille may be the oldest known complete deck of cards which retains the authentic integrity for self-discovery and knowledge.
The Authentic Tarot challenges the popular view of the cards as merely a device for fortune-telling or that it is ‘the sinister work of the Devil’.
In its authentic form, the Tarot is a profound ‘book’ of archetypal characters we meet in our dreams, myths and fairy tales. It is an encyclopaedia of magical images encoded in a covert, symbolic language of 78 pictures and numbers that express the full spectrum of human nature and characteristics that covertly mark the steps along life’s path to move us closer to becoming a fully realised human being. Its mystical teachings express our transformational journey from naivety to wisdom and self-discovery - C G Jung called this to become that which we already are!
The arcane teachings encoded in the Tarot can give us insights to enhance our daily lives and take the next positive step forward towards self-realisation and fulfilment. The Tarot can also be used as a management tool and ethical guide in business activities and politics.
Over the past 30 years I have given Tarot seminars and personal readings in the UK, the South of France, Phoenix and Albuquerque in USA.
