All Things Healing

November 20, 2010

I recently learned about All Things Healing when one of their editors asked permission to republish one of my blog entries: “To Share or not To Share: Coming out as a Tarotist.”

All Things Healing is fantastic! The site offers a thriving community and vast resources for those interested in all facets of the healing arts, including Tarot. ATH also focuses on sustainable and healthy living, and other ways individuals can help heal the planet. What I love most about ATH is its collaborative spirit. Contributors include a host of writers, teachers, and practitioners, who offer a wide array of  voices, perspectives, and approaches.

Quantum Tales: Find Your Story with the Tarot

August 6, 2008

Kay Stopforth has a new tarot blog, Quantum Tales, which writers will love! Here’s how she describes it:

“Quantum Tales is a five-part story development process for writers. I’ve evolved it to make my own storytelling process more conscious and I hope it will help you to do the same. I suggest that using the tarot may help you to build a bridge between the analytical mind and the protean realm of the imagination. With the cards providing a firm symbolic foundation, you can hone your imaginative instincts and analytical edge, getting them communicating with each other, reaching a better understanding of the story you’re trying to tell.”

In addition to explaining the process clearly, she also demonstrates how she is applying the process to a novel she is working on.

There are a lot of writers out there who will appreciate having a new method for using the tarot to stimulate and develop story.

You will also want to visit Kay’s blog, Quantum Tarot. I love her writing on each of the major arcana cards. She includes a list of questions, quotes, things to do, and movies that correspond with each card, and her interpretations are great.

Kay is the co-creator (with Chris Butler) of the Quantum Tarot, which is due out at the beginning of September. I pre-ordered a deck a while ago, and my heart skipped a beat the other day when I got an email with the subject: UPS Quantum View. I saw the words “UPS” and “Quantum” and leaped to the conclusion that my deck was on its way. Closer examination revealed that this was an email from UPS, who calls their tracking site Quantum View. My Chimes Ginger Chews are on their way. Nice, but I’ll take the Quantum Tarot over the ginger chews any day! 🙂
