Book Description

21 Oct 1999
The Glastonbury Tarot is a blending of philosophical traditions that take the reader through the Pagan, Christian and Arthurian stories associated with the mystical Isle of Avalon. This companion book to The Glastonbury Tarot cards clearly and concisely describes the history, symbolism and divinatory meanings of the 78 cards. Each image reveals a step along the path of the soul's journey, and gently guides the reader towards deeper self-understanding. Lisa Tenzin-Dolma is the author of 16 books, and her visionary paintings have been widely exhibited. She created The Glastonbury Tarot while living in Glastonbury.

5.0 out of 5 stars positively the best! 23 April 2001
Having studied Tarot for several years, this pack and the accompanying book are the most beautiful, informative, positive and magical combination that I've ever encountered....not only has Lisa the knowledge and wisdom that comes from 20 years of experience in this field but she has also painted the cards herself, imbuing them with love and knowledge. The result is an inspiring and phenomenally accurate tool for self-development.This pack may seriously change your life - it did mine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clear, informative, with beautiful art work 17 May 2000
By A Customer
Excellent book for anyone into either Glastonbury or the Tarot. Clearly explains the meanings behind each tarot card, which are beautifully illustrated, using the myths, legends and scenery of Glastonbury. The myths and legends in their turn are also told in a gentle informative way which perfectly suits both the style of the cards and the vibe of Glastonbury. Easy to use, with a good suggestions for layouts. Highly recommended!

An excellent tarot. With previous tarot packs which I have owned, I have found myself picking out a few favourite cards. With this deck, however, I find myself picking out the one or two cards I DON'T like. Nearly every image leaps out at you, striking in character, and with a depth of intuitive feeling that clearly conveys the time and loving energy which the author has obviously invested in this project.

4.0 out of 5 stars No Thorns Here 6 May 2012
This fully-illustrated deck and accompanying book paint an enchanting and enlightening picture of 'the Tarot according to Glastonbury' (my words), and the strong colours along with glossy finish bring the cards to life in a very direct way. Tenzin-Dolma's connection with Glastonbury comes through clearly in both the book and deck, and she has devised some interesting spreads, including 'the Bird Spread' and 'the Glastonbury Tree Spread', both of which make a refreshing change from the more well-known ones. She has used real people and places along with symbolic images to illustrate the cards.

Although the titles of the Major Arcana are the traditional ones, each card also bears a name/phrase reflecting either the mythical figures or landscape on which each image is based, e.g. 'the Fool/Percival', 'the Wheel of Fortune/the Glastonbury Zodiac', and 'the Devil/St. Dunstan'.

The Minor Arcana suit names are 'Swords', 'Staffs', 'Chalices' and 'Vesicas', and the only change to the Court cards is that 'Page' becomes 'Maid'. Each of the Ace through Ten cards bears a single word prompt at the bottom of the card, e.g. 'Six of Swords/Perception', 'Nine of Staffs/Strength', 'Four of Chalices/Emotion', and 'Eight of Vesicas/Patience'. The illustrations have been powerfully executed and are a feast for the senses.

What a vibrant deck this is! I have a strong sense of the author's emotional/intuitive relationship with the essence of Glastonbury in contrast to e.g. 'the Merlin Tarot', which seems to me to stem from a rather more intellectual stance. If you're a fan of Glastonbury, I think you'll love this deck, and if not, look anyway - you never know, you too may be captivated.
