You’re part of a greater whole

dance with circumstance

The world’s a giant cookie jar

ABTRACTION CARDS are based upon the ancient nakshatras of Vedic Astrology and correlate with the lunar manazils of the Arabic system. The meaning is deepened with each pair of them associating with one of the human stages of development.
ACTION CARDS are based on the chakras - the energy centers of the body.
