Divination as Prayer, Reading as Ritual — the Spiritual Art of Tarot
Engaging in a reading with Tarot cards often takes the form of performing a ritual where the querent anticipates a response from the cards, as if an answer to a prayer.
This may not be the intention of the reading, but a deeper look at this phenomenon invites the following questions:
- Is divining with Tarot cards essentially a form of prayer?
- Is there a spiritual component germane to the design and use of Tarot cards?
- Are Tarot cards ritual tools designed to support spiritual values?
Examining the religious and philosophical roots which lead to the development of Tarot as a deck of 78 cards, combined with the ritualistic nature of interacting with these objects, invites us to consider identifying Tarot as a true spiritual path.
Tiffany Crosara dedicated herself to find a way to empower others with Tarot. She read professionally full time in top London centers and on TV, wrote "The Transformational Truth of Tarot" which won an award for Best Spiritual Book of 2012, and has also won several other awards along the way, but she still remained downhearted. The misunderstanding and abuse of the Tarot were everywhere, resulting in misunderstanding and abuse of ourselves and our clients - only because no-one knows any better.
In 2014, she launched the live online group program "The Transformational Truth of Tarot" as she knew she had to break free from the companies and set a precedence on her own - she had no IDEA just HOW transformative it was going to be!
In 2016, after reaching her wit's end, The Magician visited Tiffany in a dream and gave her the game concept of "The Transformational Truth of Tarot Game Changer" which was successfully released on Kickstarter in September 2018. The game concept was incredibly well received - so well received that she is now inundated with requests from people to train as Game Guides for her Discovery Days and, for what it's all been for, for people to SEE The Transformational Truth of Tarot!

Beth Seilonen, art that extends to the depths of humanity and back.
Beth began her tarot journey during her formative years of college when her mother presented her sister with a tarot deck. Intrigued by the images and symbols therein, Beth spent the following decade studying tarot and how the symbols interacted to create a deeper understanding of the self. In 2006, Beth began to paint her own tarot deck, the Theban Tarot, which was followed by one watchful tarot collector, who then prompted her to print her work. In the following years, Beth explored the use of tarot to capture the human experience. Often disguised through humor, the layers to her images offer an unabashed level of honesty for one to meditate upon and develop themselves.
Her mass produced works to date: Tarot Leaves, Dream Ravens, Bleu Cat, Guardian Tarot, and Tarot at the Crossroads (written by Shannon MacLeod).
Catharine Allan, a clairvoyant medium, spiritual life coach and artist.
I began to self study Astrology in high school and was having strong psychic experiences in my teenage years. Unfortunately I grew up in a family where this was considered crazy, and I didn't say anything to anyone until I moved to Montreal, Canada, and teachers and mentors started to appear in my life. I lived one of those, "when the student is ready the teacher appears" experiences. I began the Tarot when I was 22 and started to read as a profession by 28. I have also had a lot of experience counselling and coaching people. I ran support groups for women, have done healing retreats, and Vipassana meditation retreats, studied and practice sound healing, chakra cleansing, guided meditation, reiki, Bach Flower remedies, gem stone work, and can clear spirits from your aura and from your home if need be. I work with my guides and Arch Angel Michael at all times in the light.
