Songs for the Journey Home tarot book and card set is now available again. This is a much loved set, co-created in New Zealand by Catherine Cook and Dwariko von Sommaruga.It is imbued with the wit and warmth of their friendship, their interest in spiritual reflection being part of everyday life and their belief that everyday life makes available the extraordinary.
Dwariko died in April 2010 and it was her wish that this creative work continued to be available to others. Catherine is now able to make this wish possible.
Songs for the Journey Home is a re-visioning of the traditional tarot set, with 78 cards representing the equivalents of the Major and Minor Arcana cards and the Court cards.
The Major Arcana are renamed Life Songs. The suits are translated into Earth, Flame, Wind and Wave Songs. Pages, Knights, Queens and Kings take on attributes of Innocence, Awakening, Creating and Resolving. The round shape of the cards symbolises the opportunity to consider possibilities outside of binaries of right/wrong, good/bad and instead offers the contemplation of life"s challenges and joys without having to foreclose the meaning to be taken from events and relationships, disappointments and possibilities.
