I'm happy to share a fantastic blurb from Neil Gaiman for his longtime friend Rachel Pollack and A Walk Through the Forest of Souls:

“A beautiful book of connections and correspondences, or perhaps a book of beautiful connections and correspondences, that is like being taken by the hand by the wisest person you know, and taught about the tarot: what it is, ways to think about it, and ways we can use it in our lives or our stories. For forty years, Rachel Pollack has been one of the finest writers and thinkers about tarot, and A Walk Through the Forest of Souls feels like a distillation of everything she has been trying to get us to see. A must for people who want the tarot in their lives or just for people like me who want it in our stories.”

—Neil Gaiman, bestselling author of American Gods, Sandman, and numerous other works.

In this book the author of Seventy-Eight Degrees of Wisdom presents a magical journey that illuminates tarot’s many hidden meanings, leading readers on an exploration of their own spiritual and personal path.

A Walk through the Forest of Souls is for spiritual seekers, who will find the tarot a new and beneficial tool to unlock the mysteries of the universe, as well as for lovers of divination, who seek to unlock the full meanings of the cards.

In these pages, Rachel Pollack uses symbols and myths to illuminate the tarot's hidden mysteries and spiritual truths. She takes readers on magical journeys through the lens of mythology, folklore, Kabbalah, Joseph Campbell-style mythography, and more.

Rachel Pollack is considered one of the world's foremost authorities on the modern interpretation of the tarot. She is a member of the American Tarot Association, the International Tarot Society, and the Tarot Guild of Australia, and has taught at the famed Omega Institute for the past 15 years. She has written 12 books on the tarot.
