Faerie Tales from an Artist & Tarot Reader

Hero’s Journey Tarot Challenge


Next weekend, I am hosting a webinar on The Sacred Wisdom of Geek Culture & Tarot. One of the functions of mythology and storytelling is to explain the human experience. We use stories to define our culture and our identities. They teach us about what is admirable and what is detestable, about fear and courage, about love and right and wrong. We consciously or unconsciously compare our lives to that of the characters in books, movies, video games, etc. Tarot has a similar function: to guide us through the human experience. This exercise I’ve created uses Joseph Campbell’s theory of the Hero’s Journey and Tarot cards to help us become the hero of our own story. I’ve suggested this exercise as a supplement to my upcoming webinar, as well as designed it for an Instagram Tarot Challenge to be completed in September. The video above includes further instructions and elaborates on the questions and prompts listed below.
