Life is like a maze. We incarnate and the deeper we go in to that incarnation the more we can lose our connection to our spirits. I love that tarot is such a powerful tool to help us reconnect with our spiritual source and wisdom. Lately, I have been even more excited about working with tarot outside of the context of readings. What follows is the first of my new experiments with technology, tarot, and spirit. I hope you will consider taking part.
22 Steps into and out of the World.
The Summer Solstice is today, June 20th 2012, it is the longest day in the year. Many traditions celebrate the triumph of the sun on this day. At my store tonight folks will be walking a labyrinth built on the 22 major arcana of the tarot. If you are not here in Toronto or are reading this after the fact you can take your own journey using the following meditation. Just lay your tarot cards out in order, or if you don’t have any find a beautiful place to walk. On each pause in my speaking take a step along the path you have laid out.
