April 5, 2009 Interview

Hi, I love your show and heard only the last portion of an interview you had this morning with a man who talked about dreaming together and how we can re-write our stories. I missed his name at the beginning of the show. I am intrigued and would like to know more about him... Can you please tell me his name? Thank you!

This author's name in Dr.

This author's name in Dr. Robert Moss and you will find several books on dreaming by him - one of the foremost authorities on dreaming, no doubt.

Pathways show- 2-01-09

Thanks, for the shows Sunday mornings; great way to start the week, and so glad to hear OCOM sponsoring you. Will be sure to mention this next visit we make there.

The "Well Dressed Ape" this AM was simply scintillating!

todays PATHWAY guest

Today's topic was particularly interesting, I would love to locate his website. He said it is www.connecttogod.com unfortunately this address sends the searcher to a christian website certainly not the site I was anticipating. Please send me more info so I am able to locate the correct site.
I did not catch the Rabi's name. The discussion was Kabalah and Neurology.
Thank you,
Colleen

Hello & Happy New Year

Hi Tom,

Crystal Wendekier, former Events Coordinator of East West Bookshop in Seattle, here to say hello and Happy New Year. I hope this email finds you well.

I decided to give up on the real estate business in Seattle. I finished graduate school in June 2008 and recently relocated to my home town of Sacramento, CA. I received a Master of Science Degree in Applied Behavioral Science with a focus on leadership and organizational development from Bastry University.

I'm currently looking for full-time or consulting work in Event/Program Management in the Sacramento area. I was wondering if you'd write a recommendation for me on my professional networking webpage at www.LinkedIn.com about my event work with you over the years when I was at East West. I would greatly appreciate it. You can see my webpage at: http://www.linkedin.com/pub/dir/crystal/wendekier. You will need to sign into view my full webpage.

Please let me know if you ever need my help with your events.

Thanks,
Crystal Wendekier

Tarot cards, history

Imagine someone who is so passionate about card games to deny that a deck of cards could be used any other way (including divination) than the way he likes ... and to think that he equates such misuse of cards with causing damage to culture! Is just playing cards so important? Is it more important than the effort to achieve greater understanding of the meaning of one's life, for instance -- whether you agree with the methodology or not?

There are lots of ways to do divination, and Tarot is definitely one of them, but Tarockspieler conflates divination with fortune-telling, betraying the fact that he/she doesn't know much about the difference between them. I would recommend my book, Divination.

I quite agree with his/her assessment of Tickle and most sites, as well as the abundance of fraudulent practitioners in the world of Tarot readings. I am well aware of the controversies about the origins of the Tarot deck, including the reductionist denial history that Tarockspieler subscribes to. On the basis of my sources, which I do not want to discuss in a Pathways forum (but would be happy to share via a more appropriate forum), I find it overly simplistic to categorically assert, as Tarock does, that there was no spiritual dimension to the origins of the Tarot symbology, which includes astrological, numerological and Kaballic corespondences. He/she can write or email to me directly for those sources if so desired.

I would share them here, but this post is completely misplaced on a KBOO forum related to the Pathways radio program, of which I happen to be a host, but which has nothing to do with Tarot per se, and has only featured a couple interviews on the topic in the past 24 years. Why was this post, which only has to do with my "day-job," posted here??? I have a blog on Tarot.com that would be more appropriate.

Tarot Cards, History

Great write up! I have a two trusted Tarot readers that are sincere prationers and their clientel are equally sincere for the most part. And as for myself I treat their knowlege and profession with respect and reverence. Being that we're resourcing the infinite divine upon potential directions that lay before us in life we'd might as well be respectful about it. Being respectful and sincere about this artform and you'll glean truthful results within the infinite sea of probabilities (quantum field).

I'd like to share more on the topic however, it may be a better idea to continue with this discussion later at your Tarot.com site.
