Paperback – June 8, 2019

by Lisa Freinkel Tishman PhD (Author)

Read Tarot in the Present Moment, Full of Joy, Prosperity, and Peace

Fill your heart with abundance and ease by uniting Tarot with the modern mindfulness movement. Combining the card archetypes and meanings with today’s well-researched methods of meditation, this groundbreaking book shows you how to find a clearer path forward through compassion.

Mindful Tarot cultivates our capacity to live and love what is unknown and unresolved. It is a practice of patience and openness, encouraging you to embrace the present moment: complete, lavish, and unconstrained. Lisa Freinkel Tishman teaches you to develop skills on three levels: mindful awareness of yourself and your querent, a deeper relationship with your cards, and a transformed understanding of the Tarot system. She also provides exercises, analyses of all 78 cards, and step-by-step examples of her own daily practice.


"Mindful Tarot is a delight and joy; a tarot book whose time has come...[It] gives us the tools we need. Wise, eloquent, yet easy to read, Mindful Tarot will stay with you long after you close its pages and start flipping cards. It will transform the way you work with the tarot forever."―Sasha Graham, author of Llewellyn's Complete Book of the Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot

"Mindful Tarot is a scholarly look at the cards that asks the reader to look within, rather than without...This book asks you to settle down, breathe in and out, and take a look at the here and now. I love the use of tarot to be present instead of future-oriented."?―Melissa Cynova, author of Kitchen Table Tarot

"Tarot has long been seen as a fabulous tool for personal and spiritual development, and Mindful Tarot gives you even more tools to help you on this quest."?―Leeza Robertson, author of Tarot Reversals for Beginners

"[Lisa Freinkel Tishman] knows how to turn a question mark into an exclamation point…listen to Lisa’s voice, as she whispers to your ear through the pages of this book, where the tarot becomes a complete practice that shatters itself into the image of our own wholeness."―Enrique Enriquez, New York-based artist and author of Tarology
