BeholderSphere.com is a presentation of my artistic and spiritual journey as I explore the 22 archetypes of the Major Arcana of the Tarot.

Each of the archetypes are related to the previous and next archetype, building from where the last one left off. This makes it an ideal guide for artistic expression and spiritual growth.

This is not about reaching a destination, but about being on a journey that inspires growth and insight from study universal mystical wisdom.
