This post was prompted by a comment I received from Peter Ryley which reminded me that somewhere in the latest configuring of the blog’s content, I was missing the Rainring website link. I found myself re-reading the 19 pages in the Foundations section written by Peter Ryley and found a wonderful paragraph I wanted to share with you which also provides an explanation of the Rainring cards.
“……how can we take unconscious elements of a situation into account when, by definition, we do not know about them? The answer is that we must employ a device which enables us to tap into the unconscious.A skilled practitioner will require no more than a bag of bones, a heap of tea leaves (or indeed a freshly-eviscerated goat) to do this. However, for those of us without this particular expertise, things are made easier by the existence of systematic decoders, of which the two best known are the I Ching from ancient China, and the Tarot from mediaeval Europe. Rainring is intended to fulfil a similar function. “
On the website you can see all 81 rainring cards with a brief descriptions. The VISUAL DIRECTORY provides a list of links to other explanations.
I find the Rainring cards “tempting” – choreographing a map to the dimly lit dimensions of oneself.
