East West Book Reviews

This captivating new tarot deck draws you into the vibrant but often hidden world of English magic, evoking a golden age of Elizabethan-era mysticism when John Dee was Queen Elizabeth’s Court Astrologer, antiquarian John Aubrey rediscovered ancient sacred sites, and the great physicist Isaac Newton studied alchemy. Brought to you by renowned artist Rex Van Ryn, colorist Steve Dooley, and writer Andy Letcher, this deck has a dynamic, graphic style.   

This isn't your average tarot deck. Through a series of riddles, clues and hidden messages imbedded in the cards, the English Magic Tarot tells a story. Once you solve the code it will help you better understand the wisdom behind the cards and the true source of English magic.

Images supplement the text, and McConnell provides additional absorbing stories about Jesus as a yogi, astral beings, and ashram life.

Yoga is more than a series of physical postures. It is a philosophy, a way of life, a spiritual path. While there is no record that Lincoln assumed the headstand during Cabinet meetings, or meditated in the lotus pose before delivering the Gettysburg Address, in many aspects of his life, Lincoln behaved, quite naturally and unconsciously, just like a yogi. This book was written to throw a spotlight on Lincoln’s many regular, and even daily, habits that demonstrate his affinity with the ancient spiritual science of yoga.
