The Attuned: A Moon Cycle Deck features 28 cards of unique goddess art, inspired by feminine archetypes from Indian, European, African and Native American cultures. For centuries, humans have attuned ourselves to the skies in search of meaning.
In ancient Goddess centered cultures, women's connection to the moon was honoured in ceremony and in daily practice of moon observation and worship. While modern culture has subverted the Goddess, that ancient connection still thrives in our bodies and our spirits. We still bleed, grow, and feel by the light of the moon. The Attuned Deck is intended to rekindle our awareness of the celestial cycles that influence us, and provide insight into the sacred feminine energy of this planet that lives inside us all. From the Publisher : Each Attuned deck comes with a guidebook designed to work with the cards as a divination tool, providing affirmations and inspiration for each day of the lunar cycle.
Produced on Salt Spring Island, BC, the Attuned deck is a work of art with fine detailing and beautiful printing and packaging.
Cards are 4x6 " in size and feature full coloured art reproductions. Cards are framed in semi-precious stone colours and are watermarked with a lotus moon symbol on the reverse. Sets come in a unique, handmade aromatic cedar box for safe keeping. 28 Cards, 16 page booklet. From the Author: I live in nature and am saturated with colours; azure waters, crimson peonies, the many layers of green in the hills and forests surrounding my island home. Like a poet who dines on words, I drink in the spirits of these colours and pour them out onto my canvasses. I consider painting to be a dance. The curves of a woman's body, to me, are a joyous subject to draw. Just as each one of us contains a shard of the goddess, so does each image I create contain a sliver of the divine. I paint what I want to manifest in the world; serenity, joy, satisfaction. I pray that these images will bring light into the world and into your life. The making of the Attuned deck has been a seven year journey. Each image began its life as a tiny spark of insight, which grew into a large format oil pastel drawing. My work has won awards and been shown internationally; this is the first time it is being offered in reproductions for you to enjoy.

«Братик Біль, Сестричка Радість» – книжка есеїстики про дуже прості щоденні досвіди, стани, відчуття, які людина переживає упродовж життя і які містяться в широкому спектрі поміж радістю й болем. Темою рефлексій і зачудування стають речі, що їх людина бачить на щодень. Досвіди внутрішні: довіри, радості, вдячності, смутку, страху, любові, переживання всього в світі як дару, – чергуються із досвідами, наповненими радістю побаченого й відчутого в світі довкола: ходіння по землі, переживання пір року, розглядання дерев, зірок, неба, води, піску, листя, квітів, хмар – найпростіших речей, які тільки є.
У цій книжці немає ідеалізування, але є довіра до світу й віра в те, що навіть найбільший біль може врешті обернутися в радість.
