The Roots of Asia Tarot Deck and I found each other about 10 years ago. The price tag on the box says $20! I only purchased the deck back then because I was enchanted by the artwork. Something about it spoke to me...maybe, because I have ethnic roots in Asia. Either way, this deck sat on various bookcases for nearly a decade. My journey in life finally lead me to using the deck in the past two years. I am not a professional tarot reader. I am on a spiritual path and find joy in connection with higher consciousness. I do very simple spreads, as outlined in the included instruction booklet. My favorite spread is a simple three card, past, present, future. This deck can be a tool for intropection and growth. On the occassion that I use it with others, the perspective it grants is always enlightening.
