Harriet Beecher Stowe as the Queen of Cups: American Renaissance Tarot DeckFox Sisters American Renaissance Tarot



The Stowe Center is especially excited to welcome Dr. Thea Wirsching, author of the American Renaissance Tarot, on Saturday and Sunday, October 29 and 30, of our Spiritualism weekend.



Dr. Wirsching is an Evolutionary astrologer and scholar based in Long Beach, CA, who received her doctorate in American occult literature at UCLA, and will speak in detail about her tarot deck and the research that inspired it at 2 pm on Saturday, October 29. In addition to her lecture, Dr. Wirsching will perform Tarot readings for interested visitors on the evenings of our Spiritualism weekend.



Traditional in its structure, the American Renaissance Tarot deck and Dr. Wirsching’s supporting scholarship blends U.S literature and esotericism, featuring over thirty writers (including Harriet Beecher Stowe) and revealing how the country’s metaphysical history is at work beneath the surface of its canonical texts. Her Tarot practice is rooted in the healing power of narrative.



Tickets are available in advance online. Spirits at Stowe events are recommended for ages 10 and up.
