TarotArts presents Maria Minnis and special guest James Ferrera for an enlightening discussion and book signing event exploring Maria's new book Tarot for the hard work. This transformative work explores the Major Arcana, reimagining these 22 iconic figures as mentors for acknowledging and combating racism in our ourselves and communities.

Tarot has always been a powerful guide for introspection and inner work, so what better tool to use when we’re ready to do the really hard work?

Maria Minnis is an unapologetically Black writer, ritual facilitator, and tarot reader who teaches about blending spirituality with liberation work. She has creatively worked with tarot for over twenty years and considers herself an eternal student of life, and thus the tarot. Her community program, Antiracist Tarot Society, is inspired by her belief that the end result of all magic should be to cultivate a more equitable and empathetic planet.

In TAROT FOR THE HARD WORK, Minnis takes a radical new look at the Major Arcana in this Tarot workbook that provides readers a unique, personal understanding of systemic racism—and what steps we can take to begin to dismantle it. This is a book for anyone who has been overwhelmed, outraged, or frustrated and asked, “But what can I do?” It is a book for anyone ready to do the inner work to address what can be done to demolish everyday racism. This book says Tarot can be tool for action, a tool that may offer great satisfaction as well as great difficulty. It is a tool to push you out of your comfort zone.
