Book Description

Nov. 4 2011

Living the Qabalistic Tarot is a 22-week course, a book version of author Amber Jayanti's popular and widely acclaimed tarot classes. Unlike other books that focus heavily on theory, background, and card interpretations, Living the Qabalistic Tarot offers readers a step-by-step guide to experiencing tarot in their daily lives. Jayanti combines years of teaching tarot and Qabalah into an accessible guide that even beginners can experience at their own pace and comfort level.

Experienced tarot students will find fascinating connections between Qabalah and tarot to deepen their daily experience of tarot.

Each of the 22 lessons is followed by suggestions and guidelines for practical application and integration into everyday life, as well as testimonials from tarot students about the power of tarot to transform daily living.

Enjoyed Ron Zeiler's comments. He's a known expert in this field. We hope to see him at the Hampshire Country Tarot convention at the San Diego Hanalei in Hotel Circle in late June.

5.0 out of 5 stars A True Gift March 7 2001
Format:Paperback
This is the book on Tarot that I have been waiting for. It is the first book, of many that I have read, that makes the Tarot practical; that is, it presents the various Keys in such a way that one can immediately use them to positively impact your life. It is easy to read, inspiring, motivating, and totally engaging. In addition to explaining each Key, Amber includes personal examples from her life and from the lives of her students that clearly show how to put the perennial wisdom of the Tarot and the Qabalah to immediate use. There are many excellent books that deal with giving predictive type readings to oneself or others. This book is unique in that it uses divination to bring "the divinity present within each of us and all life situations to the fore." Here the Tarot is used, not only to bring wisdom and understanding to our daily experiences, but also to explore the questions that remain after all the affairs of daily life are put in order; such as, Who am I? What is the origin, substance, and goal of life? How do I use the Tarot to align myself with, experience, and reflect the Divine? This book is a gem, written by a person who deeply understands, and lives, the magic of the Tarot. It is at the top of my list of recommended books for people who are serious in their study of the Tarot.

5.0 out of 5 stars At last ! A practical, reflexive approach to the Tarot. I've not found any other like this. Dec 24 2005
By Daniel Torres - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
At last! A reflexive and practical approach to the Tarot! Between too many books about Tarot, almost all of them only with a predictive approach to this ancient wisdom, here comes an important tool for the serious wisdom seeker. I strongly recommend it to all esoteric students. For years I've been looking for a book that not only tell me about the meanings of each card, but that also guide me with reflexive questions to view the tarot wisdom in my own life and current circumstances. The added value of this book is the recommendations about how to integrate each arcane in you life. The personal experiences of the author and their students give you a clear idea of how to "live" the tarot. The Case's Tarot Deck, which is used as the images in this book, is an excellent deck. The incorporation of the Hebrew letters associated to each card is an asset of this book and the images inside it. I don't buy things like these if I'm not sure they are serious, but this book is different. I think I would buy some as gifts to some friends.

Pity it is not available in Spanish !!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous, user-friendly, complete guide on Major Arcana and integration of it Jan. 21 2010
By J. Dougherty McGee - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Jayanti is a natural teacher: easy to read, unthreatening, and at times downright funny. In this book about the Major Arcana, and suggestions for integrating its lessons into daily, routine life, Jayanti addresses each card, explaining symbolism (much that is not examined -- or known -- by other "specialists") and the beautiful life suggestions that come with each card.

The initial chapters are excellent examples of Tarot principles -- very down-to-earth and intuitive to follow; a good base for Tarot enthusiasts to remember.

Any person desirous of a spiritual compass, mirror, and lessonbook would be well served by this simple, unpretentious, and inspiring book, filled with pertinent, natural daily life exercises.

Some Tarot readers/users, although they proclaim differently, can be pretentious (in their "loving" ways), too-elevated-for-thee (thou?), or self-satisfied in their knowledge, even if that's negligible. I am a former student of Ms. Jayanti, and must add here that, different from so many Tarot practitioners, she is a joyous, very approachable, non-"foofy" person -- absolutely the best for approaching Tarot, which is exaggeratedly and often deliberately mystified by many who forget its more elevated, largely personal uses. Living in a paradise for artists, lefties, and remaining hippies types who compete in looking and presenting themselves as "alternative" and "artistic (read: a lot of surface doo-doo)," Amber Jayanti's approach was so very refreshing and real. Hopefully I will take more of her courses, which are uplifting and full of information, imparted in her lovely Santa Cruz home. Thank you, Amber, wherever you may be.

5.0 out of 5 stars In depth study. July 26 2011

Combining reading the chapters with coloring your own set of cards produces a deep understanding of the cards and a deeper understanding of yourself and others.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great study bible with real life case studies on the major arcana! A must have for the serious student. March 26 2014
By Penny - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Living the Tarot is like a tarot study bible. It's relatively easy to read - it flows well and she provides not only the typical descriptions and key concepts, but discusses the cards in context to her students as well as her own readings. In this aspect it almost becomes a case study on tarot. She really brings the cards to life. Living the Tarot uses the major arcana to examine the fools journey. The author also suggests doing exercises that will enhance your understanding of tarot.

So why only 4-stars you ask? Well, I don't like it when a tarot "expert" only addresses the Major Arcana. There is absolutely nothing on the minor arcana. I think that is almost negligible. There are 56 disenfranchised cards that are not represented. However, I'm willing to overlook it this time because the information that is provided is indispensable.

I would recommend this to not only the novice, but there are things in there that would enlighten an adept as well.
