Supra Oracle Cards
What Is An Oracle Deck? An oracle deck is similar to a tarot in that it is an object of meditation that encourages it's participant to explore and uncover authentic truths about their individual character that unite them to the extremely powerful and ancient current of universal, creative energy. It is the Hero Journey that is open to all of us – "The Royal Road," as it once was called – that promises a dynamic, positive transformation in our characters that can only be experienced through a true understanding of our essential selves
Where an Oracle differs from the tarot is that it is a looser, more artistic exploration of that journey. An oracle deck can be used on it's own or as a compliment to the tarot as a way of deepening the meditation experience. It is a gentle, daily guide that explores the individual's moment within the epoch and helps create an inner bridge to our ancient, universal archetypes – humanity's folkloric past – a spiritual journey that feeds our souls, energizes our present and empowers our future.
"Supra" is an oracle deck loosely based on Jungian psychology and how it mingled with Gnosticism. We loved the melding of physics, psyche and ancient knowledge in Jung’s practice that inspired an artistic leap at the dawn of the 20th Century in how Man relates to the world around him. It was a process of soul making in an era of growing preoccupation with the Machine and a return to our mystic roots that nourish and enliven our essential selves – our individual identities – within the immeasurable expanse of the cosmos.
With a world very much in play and running more and more at a machine's pace, we need objects and practices that ask us to stop, to reflect, and above all to allow us time to be human – to listen to what is in our hearts as much as what is in our minds. The dawn always breaks at the darkest time of night.
The "Supra" Oracle All the original imagery in our oracle has been created by Peter Dunham and Linnea Gits. Peter is the artist for this deck, and his use of pen and ink line work was inspired by the traditional line work engravings from the 15th and 16th century Masters. The intent of this style was it invoke a feeling of antiquity transporting you back in time when gods and goddesses walked the earth with men.
