Hand painted cards created by Joshua Tree artist, musician and yoga instructor Adriana Altema.
"Animal Medicine Cards began as live readings: Interactive wisdom transmissions, using the original deck of hand-painted, hand-crafted wooden cards.
Animals offer us insight through metaphors drawn from observation. Sometimes we must be cunning like Fox. There is a time to be direct like our friend Goat. A time to get out of sight like Rabbit. Observing Animals helps Human bodied beings by offering options of ways to be. Though we don't share the same linguistics, the language of action tells a story, offering possibilities of how to live life on Earth, interact with others and fulfill our destinies.." - Adriana Atema
At long last, Animal Medicine Cards are available for purchase. 28 oversized (5"/7") Cards with a Hard Box and Guidebook. The deck visually replicate the 28 original hand-fabricated, hand-painted wooden cards. The Guidebook divines insight and wisdom from our neighbors the common Animals that live all around us, sometimes even sharing our home.
