The Mother’s Wisdom Deck offers the trail guide and travel companion you may have been seeking. Riding the power of synchronicity, the deck extends exactly the right card at the right time. Ponder a subject or ask for guidance in your life, and then turn to the deck. Drawing a card can either reveal a message (like Tarot) or simply provide you with inspiration for the mothering journey. Somehow in process of asking and receiving, an evocative relationship unfolds. The subtle mirroring of within and without becomes amplified. Think of it as an intervention—of Grace.
This beautiful, nuanced kit, written by Niki Dewart and Elizabeth Marglin, and illustrated by Jenny Kostecki-Shaw, features a full-color guidebook plus a deck of 52 cards illuminating universal symbols of empowered motherhood. Arranged into four suits—Nature Mother, Animal Mother, Ancestral Mother, and Divine Mother—the deck invokes a feminine pantheon both immediate and compelling. In both words and images, rediscover anew the lineage of mothers before you, around you, and inside of you.
