meaningful. Loaded with brilliant improvisational ideas, imaginative play and inventive experiences, these creative exercises allow the reader to truly bring the tarot to life!”

The Silent Doorkeeper is an amazing book. I was lucky enough to see an advanced copy and was knocked out by it. Besides that, it engages with a vital subject, literally life and death, it’s also a brilliant way to dive deeply into a deck. It can be used with a deck you admire and like but want to understand better, or your all time favorite, and you want to go deeper with it. Basically it’s a 78 card reading done over 78 days, all on the same subject (and, of course, you would do it with a subject of importance to you–for those who write fiction it would make a great structure for a novel). I should also mention that it’s not just a smart idea, Scott writes beautifully, and with deep feeling.
