Steve Nobel interviews Mark Ryan, co-author of Wild Magic.
They talk Wildwood tarot, an amazing tarot reading and discuss the human psyche.
Invoke the power of the Wildwood, of the Green Man and Green Woman, and of the living archetypes of the forest such as Robin-in-the-Hood, with this new companion to the bestselling Wildwood Tarot. Authors Mark Ryan and John Matthews take us across time, to the pre-Celtic world of the forest that once cloaked much of the world, where primal forces roamed free and opened doorways into the otherworld of the Ancestors. With chapters on the Lore of the Wildwood, shamanic methods of exploring the inner reaches, and meditations designed to enable powerful, personal encounters with Wildwood archetypes, as well as the authors’ own insights on ways to read the cards, plus an intriguing glimpse into what science can tell us about the tarot, the book takes a new and informed look at a set of ancient traditions applied to our lives today.
In this great interview, Steve Nobel and John Matthews talk about how John got interested in the Celtic era and Shamanism. They discuss the Celts, their shamanic traditions and relationship to the world. Lastly John analyses the imagery of 3 cards picked by Steve: The Lady of the Sacred Earth; The Son, and The Lord of the Underworld.
This audio podcast is complemented by images of the cards, excerpts from the book, allowing you a glimpse inside, and to analyse the cards alongside John Matthews.
