These lovingly illustrated cards are a joy to behold. A thoughtfully written book full of insights and gems of wisdom accompanies them. I have enjoyed perusing them myself and sharing them with my friends. Buy a set for yourself and more to gift to those you love.
“I find these cards to be very grounding and supportive for me when I need to center myself and receive a deeper message. They call me into the present moment. I've worked with many decks in my life and these cards are much deeper, carefully channeled and potent. Literally, the medicine of the messages are palpable. I bought 5 decks to give as gifts and the recipients loved them too. There is a difference between a highly manufactured and contrived product and something that is carefully curated from heart and spirit. This deck feels like true wisdom, hand crafted and written by a seasoned wisdom-keeper. I highly recommend these cards for your heart and soul or for the support of others.”
“The first thing you notice about this deck is the infusion of vitality in each of the 54 cards. The layers, colors, shapes, lines, and forms in the compositions are organic and spontaneous -- truly reminiscent of the natural world they embody and represent. The compositions on the card fronts are an interesting balance between abstract and concrete imagery. And, they are arranged so that the reader's eye is drawn to each aspect individually; while still being able to take in the entire card. I like layers as an artist, but I specifically benefit from them as a card-reader. Layers give a deck more multi-dimensional applications and accessibility. …….I have worked with these cards for about a week, and each time I pick up the deck, something new emerges. Something I did not see before makes itself known.”
“This is an exquisite medicine deck that is both evocative and provocative. We used it at our Women’s Journey Circle and everyone present received a huge gift of wisdom, insight and inspiration.”
You might want to keep it out for a period of time, in an open space, so you can view it both as sacred inspiration and as beautiful art.
“I have the distinct good fortune to know Mel Hofmann in real life, so I was quick to buy a deck of these beautiful cards. While I assumed they would be good, I continue to be amazed at how provocative and helpful these cards are for my own spiritual development! Each card provides multiple depths of invitation beginning with the gorgeous images and moving through the excellent accompanying booklet. The cards have been particularly useful to me when I reach a "stuck" place or find myself overwhelmed. They gently, but quickly call me back to my own wisdom and knowing. The other terrific thing about his deck is that it is good for just about anyone - regardless of spiritual tradition. The topics are universal and connect well with various beliefs systems. This is a real rarity, in my own experience and very, very helpful. As such, they make a great and thoughtful gift!”
“The Sacred Journey Medicine Cards open up a gently piercing world of insight and activate a necessary dialogue with kindred spirits including animals and plants that help bring healing and a deepened affinity with nature and ourselves. Mel has created compelling visual essence fields that allow the spiritual energies to radiate and communicate with the viewer in a variety of ways. The layered imagery opens the door for multiple reads and perspectives to emerge with each successive viewing. Very engaging and also potently wild.”
