Book by Stefan Stenudd
Tarot Unfolded presents an imaginative reading of the Tarot divination cards, and how to apply it to different card spreads and reading methods.
Tarot is the extended deck of cards used for divination, dating back to the Renaissance. It works by images, as do humans. We are creatures of imagination. Reading the Tarot cards is essentially done by processing the images in our imagination.
This book presents the Tarot and explains how it's used in divination. But the main purpose of the book is to tickle the reader's imagination into going on the spiritual quest induced by imagery. See the Tarot card pictures come alive as other pictures emerge from your mind to meet and transform them. You may find that the world will never look the same again.
The authorStefan Stenudd is a Swedish author, historian of ideas, artist, and a long-time instructor in the peaceful martial art aikido. He has published a number of books in Swedish as well as English, both fiction and non-fiction.
Among the latter is an interpretation of the Chinese classic Tao Te Ching and the Japanese samurai classic Go Rin no Sho (Book of Five Rings) by Miyamoto Musashi. His novels explore existential subjects from Stone Age drama to science fiction, but lately stay more and more focused on the present. He has also written some plays for the stage and the screen. In the history of ideas he studies the thought patterns of creation myths, as well as Aristotle's Poetics.
He is also the writer of all the material on this website.
