I believe that the tarot can be an incredible tool for gleaning self-knowing. When I bring the tarot into sessions it is not as a divination tool, but as a jumping off point for the client to see their self and their journey. Often we may translate the tarot card into art making, asking the question: what messages do I need to hear from myself through this card?
The tarot consists of 22 cards called the major arcana and four suits of 14 cards called the minor arcana. There is great mystery surrounding the history of the tarot, many believe it is related it to ancient Egyptian mysteries and the Jewish mystic tradition of the Kabbalah. When I bring the tarot into therapy it is often with 1-3 cards as a way for the client to listen to what arises in them in response to seeing the cards. For more information on the tarot please see the resources section.
