ABOUT THE HAINDL
Rediscover the depths of the Haindl Tarot
New Insight on a Classic Tarot
Hermann Haindl was a well-known German artist, stage manager, and environmentalist. Thrust upon the Russian front as a teenage soldier, meant to die as mere cannon fodder in WWII, he saw and suffered unspeakable horrors. When his life was miraculously saved by a Russian Jewish officer, he was taken prisoner and so survived.
Returning to Germany, he spent decades involved in art, theater and spirituality to heal himself from his PTSD. He traveled the world to experience a variety of spiritual practices directly. His immersion in these lead him to become one of Germany's key environmentalists.
When he became interested in tarot, Haindl drew upon his own fantasy art, the I Ching, Native American teachings he had learned first-hand from respected sages, Hindu wisdom he had studied in India, and kabbalah he had experienced in Israel – all to create his outstanding deck.
His amazing tarot has for decades been favored by professional Tarotists. Rachel Pollack wrote two books about this deck. But since Haindl's 2013 death the deck has fallen a bit by the wayside. I had the privilege to play a small part aimed at bringing new insight to the wonder of Haindl's work, a lavish book filled with art and essays by those who knew Haindl throughout his life.
This full color coffee-table book in German and English contains a deep dive into Haindl's cards along with meanings by Rachel Pollack. It's a work of art in and of itself. Order on Amazon.

Card Consultant, Active Listener
My favorite things are cards, coffee and vintage eyeglasses. Tarot, Lenormand, Kipper, German playing cards - I love them all. Besides my current practice working with clients like you, this led to editorial work with a major tarot publisher.
Recently I've been drinking a lot of lovely berry-basket coffees from Ethiopia while listening to SOMA.fm's Lush radio. My husband & I reside in Europe. We love to travel! Let's you and I make an appointment to talk about all your journeys ...over cards.
Don't hesitate to contact me about how and when we could work together, be it in person or over Skype.
