The Black & White Edition of KABBALAH AND TAROT OF THE SPIRIT contains three complete Books: The Minor Arcana & Daath, The Tarot Family, and The Major Arcana. • Book One, The Minor Arcana and Daath, is a comprehensive guide to the Minor Mystery cards: 1-10 of Fire, Water, Wind and Earth. The ten cards in each element/suit correspond to the Ten Spheres of the Tree of Life. The four elements correspond to the Four Worlds of the Kabbalah. One additional card, the Mystery Card, represents the secret Sphere Eleven of the Tree of Life, “Daath,” the doorway into other dimensions. Book One also elucidates the foundations of Pacific Mystery School, the architecture of the Kabalistic Tree of Life as a paradigm for New Consciousness, and the fundamentals of Tarot reading with Tarot of the Spirit.• Book Two, The Tarot Family, describes the sixteen Family Cards, also known as “court cards” and “face cards.” These cards, too, are part of the Minor Arcana or Minor Mysteries. Each of these “cosmic beings” represents a specific complex of personified Kabalistic and elemental energies. The Cosmic Family – Father, Mother, Brother and Sister – are mystical Guides and Guardians as well as aspects of the individual and collective psyche. Each oversees and enhances specific Minor Arcana cards as well as specific seasons and days of the year. • Book Three, The Major Arcana, expounds upon the twenty-two Key or Initiation cards, each of which represents one of the interconnecting branches of the Tree of Life. As we pass through these Initiations, we are forever transformed. The three Books of KABBALAH AND TAROT OF THE SPIRIT are also available in three separate Full Color Collector's Editions.

Just like the Osho Zen Tarot deck, this book offers a fresh and contemporary approach to anyone who is interested in self-exploration and personal transformation. Osho challenges readers to examine and break free of the conditioned belief systems and prejudices that limit their capacity to enjoy life in all its richness. He has been described by the Sunday Times of London as one of the “1000 Makers of the 20th Century” and by Sunday Mid-Day (India) as one of the ten people—along with Gandhi, Nehru, and Buddha—who have changed the destiny of India. Since his death in 1990, the influence of his teachings continues to expand, reaching seekers of all ages in virtually every country of the world.

Hundreds of new Tarot decks have been produced in the late twentieth century, many of them based on the structure and images of Arthur Waite and artist Pamela Smith's Rider-Waite deck (1910). The continuing popularity and influence of the Rider-Waite deck makes it a standard for identifying, categorizing and analyzing contemporary Tarot and other meditation decks. This work of art history analyzes such decks in relation to conventional art styles and movements, including Symbolism, Surrealism, the modernist "grid" and the low/high value hierarchy, and postmodern art movements and concepts such as the dissolution of the modernist value hierarchy, Pattern and Decoration art, and collage. It also examines them in relation to literary concepts, including the novel, utopias, and popular genres. The author's analysis is supported by numerous illustrations, including the Rider-Waite major arcana cards juxtaposed with examples of their counterparts from more recent decks.

A practical and accessible guide with everything you need to know to craft and cast spells that really work. A spell, which some refer to as a Witch’s prayer, is something nearly anyone can learn. One does not need to be initiated into any mystery cults, swear an oath of dedication to any god or goddess, denounce or convert to any religion, or even wear the label of a Witch or Wiccan in order to be a spell crafter. But among the things that are required, the most important ones are an open mind, true desire, and the will, patience, self-conviction, and courage to follow what is within one’s heart, and the maturity to take responsibility for one’s own actions. Once you gain an understanding of how magickal energy works and learn the secrets to casting spells, you will be able to tap into your inner powers, focus, and direct them utilizing simple items found in the average home or easily purchased at the nearest occult shop. In fact, many of the herbs and other ingredients called for in spells can be found right in your very own kitchen! The casting of spells is an ancient art that has played an important role in many of the cultures and religions throughout the world. This book is designed to be a guide to the history, philosophy, ethics, and practical application of spell crafting. Written with the novice-to-intermediate student in mind, it covers all areas of folk magick in an explorative and unbiased manner.

To the casual observer, they're just a pack of playing cards. But to initiates, the mysterious figures of the Tarot deck symbolize the keys to ancient wisdom. The 78 cards can be employed to unlock the secrets of the universe and to foretell the future — but only by those who comprehend their esoteric truths. A pillar of occult science, The Tarot of the Bohemians provides a theological element to the work begun by Antoine Court de Gébelin, Etteila, and Éliphas Lévi, and advanced by A. E. Waite, the distinguished scholar and designer of the most widely known deck. Geared toward initiates, its topics include an introduction to the study of the Tarot as well as its symbolism and applications. This revised edition includes a Preface by Waite in addition to illustrative plates, charts, and tables.
This is a book only, the tarot deck must be purchased separately. Tree Spirit Tarot recounts the mythical and historical stories of 78 featured trees and their impact on our personal and collective understanding. By seeing how we are interrelated with trees, we can begin to reconnect to ourselves and each other. By bringing these shared stories to consciousness we awaken the tree of life within. This awakening is symbolic of our return to wholeness. Trees are reflections of our selves and our world. They are cross-cultural and archetypal symbols of the human condition. The Tarot was an illustrated deck of 78 cards that originated in 15th century Italy, its original name was "trionfi" meaning "triumphs," symbolizing the paths one takes through life. The tarot is divided into two groups: The Major Arcana, and the Minor Arcana. The journey of the Wonderer (Fool/Hero) is also reflected in the teachings of Kabbalah, known as the Tree of Life. The Kabbalah shows the path of the soul as it descends through the Tree of Life to become human and then transcends to spiritual oneness. Tree spirits by their very nature are wise, nurturing and without judgment. Their goal is to support us on our journey and to provide guidance whenever we need it. Their guidance is one of insight based on their unique history and botany. The card deck can be purchased at: https: //www.printerstudio.com/sell/designs/tree-spirit-tarot-deck.html
