Not On Our Shelves—Ships in 1-5 Days
This first of its kind, East-meets-West deck and guidebook are a tool for self-reflection, healing, and transformation, merging traditional tarot archetypes with ancient Sufi practices.

This deck combines mystical Sufi wisdom with classic tarot archetypes recast as Sufi concepts and figures, offering a new lens on the traditional tarot system.

Sufism is often called the path to the heart because it is a process of turning within to the fountainhead of all knowledge through the opening and purification of the heart. In tarot, we meet the carefree fool, the enigmatic magician, the mystical high priestess, the commanding emperor, the nurturing empress and more--archetypes that represent the many qualities that each of us must call upon on as we follow the "Fool's Journey" through life.

Both call the reader to walk the path of self-discovery and inner-knowing, uncovering secrets not to predict the future, but to discover answers to the big questions: Why are we here? Why do we feel the way we feel and act the way we act? What is our purpose in this life?

If you love Sufi wisdom, explore the knowledge of our tradition through the aesthetically sublime wisdom of The Sufi Tarot. - Omid Safi, Professor of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies at Duke University and author of Radical Love: Teachings from the Islamic Mystical Tradition

These beautiful tarot cards bring together wisdom and insight inherent in the classical tradition of Sufism. The depictions provide deep and resounding resonance with the sacred traditions, a way to engage while still adhering to the fundamentals of both tarot reading and Tasawwuf (Sufism). If you already know about these two traditions, these cards will delight. If you are just learning about these traditions, these cards will help you on your journey. They are colorful, vibrant and beautiful. - Amina Wadud, Lady Imam and Professor Emeritus of Islamic Studies at Virginia Commonwealth University

Readings from this tarot have been a guiding and reassuring light, always pulling me back to where I need to be. I have no doubt these cards will be significant. - Laury Silvers, Ph.D., author of The Sufi Mysteries Quartet series
