This new oracle created by modern-day shaman John Matthews and shamanic artist Wil Kinghan will prove to be one of the most exciting and powerful divinatory systems of the decade. The pack includes a deck of 52 cards, a fold-out chart showing positions to lay the cards around a human handprint, and an 80-page book on how to use this revelatory new card reading method to chart your personal journey. The handprint is ingeniously related to the cave dweller's world, each finger representing a cave, home to one of five tribes. The 52 cards are divided into five groupings corresponding to these tribes - Spirits, Ancestors, Hunters, Dancers and Shamans - each representing a different aspect of human experience. Two further cards - the Journeyer and the Helper - represent the person who is conducting the reading: the Seeker. As the cards are drawn and placed on the chart, they reveal insights that will help to guide the Seeker on his or her quest for the answers to life's most vital questions.
The images are not only beautiful, atmospheric and mysterious, but they also touch on the deepest memories we all possess - the unconscious archetypes that influence our thoughts, feelings and actions at the deepest level of being. Universal in its messages (cave art is found all over the world, in Europe, China, the Americas and Australia), this deck has the power to reveal and refine your destiny.
