Book Praise

"One of the best texts dealing with Jungian theory and Kabbalistic imagery, meaning, and their relationship to the Tarot that I've seen. This book is a must addition to any Tarot library, and will undoubtedly add a new depth and dimension to your reading and practice, as well as your understanding of the Tarot."

"In this amazing book [Gwain] pulls together the tarot, Jungian archetypes, and the Qabalah. Not only does she add some very useful layouts for spiritual and self-awareness purposes, but she also helps the reader assess where he or she fits into these schemes and what parts of the self might be serving as shadows, or be unbalanced in an unhealthy way."
