Motherpeace is timeless, portraying — for the first time in centuries of Tarot history — a rich world of female imagery in which women and children hold the center in a variety of mythic, prehistoric, and contemporary settings.
These round feminist cards can be read for divination from the images alone, without any knowledge of Tarot. They can also be studied as part of the system of Tarot and understood within that more formal context. Embedded within the symbolic language of Motherpeace are the paradigms of matriarchal and ethnic studies, shamanism, yoga, and paganism, as well as the core principles of western occult and esoteric studies.
The Motherpeace images contain, in a fresh stylized form resembling “folk art,” reproductions of artifacts, images, and knowledge from the disciplines of archaeology, anthropology, history, and art.
There will be cards to work with at the workshop, and attendees are invited to bring their own decks as well. There will also be Motherpeace decks for available purchase, please bring cash or check.
