About the Author
Read an Excerpt
This deck was created as an homage to the stories we have told one another across cultures and throughout history. While each story is unique to a specific time and place, every culture has stories of bright young adventurers, forbidden doors, or promised lands. In this way, the Tarot of the Divine fosters appreciation of our differences and of the truth in our similarities.
A number of these stories will be familiar to Western audiences, but many will be new. Some are short and sweet, while others are pieces of larger epics. This guidebook lists the name of each tale and its country of o rigin, offering a small window into other cultures. Be sure to check out the accompanying book, Beneath the Moon, for a full telling of each story.
