Friday, August 23, 7-9 PM: Book Release Celebration for Lisa Tishman, author of Mindful Tarot: Bring a Peace-Filled, Compassionate Practice to the 78 Cards.
Mindful Tarot is part dharma book, part introduction/exploration of the Tarot in the manner of traditional tarot guide books. And at the heart of it all is Lisa’s work in mindfulness.
Lisa Freinkel Tishman, PhD, (Eugene) began studying the Tarot as a grad student at Berkeley in the late 1980s. She has published extensively on Petrarch, the Renaissance poet sometimes thought to have influenced the tarot trumps. An award-winning teacher, Zen Buddhist minister, and certified mindfulness educator, she is a former humanities professor and dean at the University of Oregon (UO) and founding director of UO’s Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction program. Lisa is now an interfaith chaplain at Sacred Heart Medical Center in Springfield, Oregon, and continues to offer mindfulness classes, trainings, and Tarot readings through her business, Calyx Contemplative Care
