The Xultun Tarot was created by Peter Balin in 1976. It was based on images from Maya history and culture and was the first of the cultural or indigenous tarot deck. Taken from a single painting, it is the only tarot deck where the major arcana form a complete picture. This picture tells the story of the marriage of spirit and matter and what C G Jung called the individuation process. [for more visit www.xultun.com]

The Moon Cycles are a Native American teaching about the archetypal influences and forces that affect us at different times in our lives. This book offers new insights into Jung’s life and death, and provides a fascinating perspective on some of Jung’s more important dreams and how the rhythm of his life coincided with the great events of the 20th century. It also casts new light on Jung’s fateful encounter with Freud as well as his relationships with women and his supposed anti-Semitism.
• Both Jung’s parents were the thirteenth and youngest in their families.
• Freud died twenty-seven years after he fainted in Jung’s presence and said “How sweet it must be to die.”
• Jung dreamed of the 1945 firebombing of Dresden twenty-seven years before it happened.
• Jung’s writings about Picasso and their relationship to Jung’s death.
Michael Owen also shows readers how to place the events of their own lives on the Moon Cycles and gain a new perspective on the births and deaths (inner and outer) in their life. They will see what learning periods are ahead of them, and understand the critical importance of the nine-month, three-year and twenty-seven year cycles.
