Tarot Trance

Well, last Sunday we had quite a bit of fun with Tarot cards.  The Tarot Trance workshop turned out really well.  I demonstrated a number of the variations for this wonderful hypnosis or trance process using Tarot cards.  I even demonstrated the "no card" Tarot process that can be very useful for when you wish…

On May 25, I will be conducting a three-hour workshop on TAROT TRANCE in Taipei (actually on the Keelung side of Shijr, very convenient to the Shijr train station).

TAROT TRANCE (43:55, 78.2 megs.). Yes, there really is a new Hypnocast and it is a very special video episode. This is a discussion and demonstration of Tarot Trance, a variation of the Through the Gate into Tarot process which was the first audio hypnocast episode so long ago (still available for direct download in the…

TarotL . . . ownership . . .

Things have gotten pretty strange at TarotL, the email discussion list on Tarot that I have been co-moderating for some time. We’ve just had a few upsets and unsettlings and the like as well as controversies galore . . . all of which has been under the onus that the list owner has been missing…

Tarot in the movies

Woody Allen’s new movie features a Tarot card killer and Willam H. Macy’s film has Tarot and murder as well.  Tarot cards are often featured in films as harbingers of doom . . . but . . . they can also be very positive.  Paul Quinn looks at Tarot in movies here.  While I disagree…

Back in the Saddle Again . . .

Well, it was a week . . . that’s how long I was gone from Tarot L before enough folks convinced me that I really did make a mistake and that leaving the group because I was not happy with some folks wasn’t really helping me, them, or the list.  So . . . I’m…

Tarot L . . . stepping aside

For those who care about such things . . . I have stepped down as a moderator of TarotL . . . I just got too tired of certain folks bitching and moaning about how moderators needed to stop other certain folks from posting when in fact I tended to agree with the guy who…

Tarot Trance . . . clarifications . . .

Some more clarification on my post about Tarot Trance. Dr. Phillips, that sounds fascinating . . . but . . . I don’t know all that tarotish mumbojumbo and card meaning stuffs and really am not enough patience to learn them I guess I was not clear enough . . . the Tarot Trance processes…

Tarot Trance . . . synchronicity draws

Cross-posting from TarotL and the Hypnosis Technique Exchange as this may be of interest to folks here as well . . . I’m a big fan of Tarot cards as a tool for introspective meditation rather than divinaroty readings . . . the cards are just so rich in archetyes and other fodder for meaningful…

Student-Created Photographic Tarot Decks

I teach at a national university and occassionally use Tarot-theme projects as part of my communication courses – particularly when introducing concepts related to critical thinking and influence as conversational language sets. This year, we decided to play a bit and so the students divided into groups as part of a Thematic Photographic Tarot Project…

Cartofeminism

J. Karlin shares his view on what he believes to be the co-opting of Tarot by radical feminism in Cartofeminism. I honestly think he’s reading too much into some of the statements or pulling them a bit too far out of context. The remarks by Mary K. Greer that are being placed as proor of…

Ordering the Cards

Regular readers know that I collect Tarot cards and that I use them as part of an intuitive practice, usually trance related (I will be teaching an upcoming course on Metaphysical Hypnosis that incorporates a number of Tarot processes), rather than for what many consider to be fortune telling or the like. Recently on one…

Tarot and Hypnosis

A post on my free MP3 download of the Through the Gate into Tarot process, the first episode of my hypnocast, came up that the response to which is worth sharing for folks who have the same sort of questions. Brian David Phillips writes: There is a tarot process for meditation posted in mp3 format…
