Meet your Mystic Teachers, master the energies of Fire, Water, Wind and Earth, learn to wield the Ten Powers of the Tree of Life and pass through the Twenty-One Key Initiations. KABBALAH AND TAROT OF THE SPIRIT is the complementary and supplementary companion to The Lightning Papers: Ten Powers of Evolution, also by Pamela Eakins, as well as the Tarot of the Spirit book and deck by Pamela and Joyce Eakins. Tarot of the Spirit has been highly acclaimed and recommended by Angeles Arrien, Rachel Pollack, James Wanlesss, Mary Greer, Brian Thomas Swimme, Gareth Knight, Arisa Victor, U.S. Games Systems, Inc., and Samuel Weiser, Inc. The Black & White Edition of KABBALAH AND TAROT OF THE SPIRIT contains three complete Books: The Minor Arcana & Daath, The Tarot Family, and The Major Arcana. • Book One, The Minor Arcana and Daath, is a comprehensive guide to the Minor Mystery cards: 1-10 of Fire, Water, Wind and Earth. The ten cards in each element/suit correspond to the Ten Spheres of the Tree of Life. The four elements correspond to the Four Worlds of the Kabbalah. One additional card, the Mystery Card, represents the secret Sphere Eleven of the Tree of Life, “Daath,” the doorway into other dimensions. Book One also elucidates the foundations of Pacific Mystery School, the architecture of the Kabalistic Tree of Life as a paradigm for New Consciousness, and the fundamentals of Tarot reading with Tarot of the Spirit.• Book Two, The Tarot Family, describes the sixteen Family Cards, also known as “court cards” and “face cards.” These cards, too, are part of the Minor Arcana or Minor Mysteries. Each of these “cosmic beings” represents a specific complex of personified Kabalistic and elemental energies. The Cosmic Family – Father, Mother, Brother and Sister – are mystical Guides and Guardians as well as aspects of the individual and collective psyche. Each oversees and enhances specific Minor Arcana cards as well as specific seasons and days of the year. • Book Three, The Major Arcana, expounds upon the twenty-two Key or Initiation cards, each of which represents one of the interconnecting branches of the Tree of Life. As we pass through these Initiations, we are forever transformed. The three Books of KABBALAH AND TAROT OF THE SPIRIT are also available in three separate Full Color Collector's Editions.
