Introduction

I’m Benebell Wen, the author of Holistic Tarot (2015) and The Tao of Craft (2016), both published by North Atlantic Books. I’m also the creator and illustrator of the independently produced Spirit Keeper’s Tarot deck. My professional background is in law. To date I am still practicing law full-time, licensed in both California and New York. I work in venture capital, with an emphasis in securities, business and labor laws, and intellectual property (copyrights, trademarks, and patents).

Yet my primary area of interest and study has always been in the occult. I hope to share that interest with you here on my platform. Click on the Site Map linked below for a descriptive outline of everything you’ll find on this website.

The Spirit Keeper’s Tarot Deck

At this time, both the black-and-white First Edition (2018) and the sepia-toned Vitruvian Edition (2019) are sold out and out of print. The First Edition had a total print run of 1,000 decks and the Vitruvian Edition was a print run of 2,000 decks.

Yes, I an contemplating a distant  future third edition of the SKT, but it will be necessarily different from both the First and the Vitruvian, and it won’t be for another many years (how many, I don’t know). There are a few other passion projects I’d like to take to the finish line and I’ve told myself I won’t revisit the SKT until I’ve finished those passion projects.

However, there are still lots of different free downloads for the SKT that you can still get, if that interests you, so be sure to browse through the SKT pages on this website.

Free E-Book: Key of Solomon, et al.

A 560-page digital book for free download. You can also order a physical paperback copy if you’d like.

What you will discover within the pages of this book I’m sharing, you’re going to find to be the keystones of Persian magic and witchcraft, the magical practices of Muslim-influenced Southeast Asian countries, the Golden Dawn (though many of their correspondences differ), hoodoo, Wicca, and maybe even the traditions you’ve inherited, though perhaps you’ve always wondered where those traditions might have come from.

If you’re serious about your occult studies, then I hope you’ll add this text to your library and read through it cover to cover at least once.

LEARN THE TAROT CARD BY CARD

Tarot Card Meanings with Bell

This is an educational video series covering the 78 keys or cards of the tarot, showcasing the distinct attributions for four different deck systems: the Tarot de Marseilles (TdM), the Rider-Waite-Smith (RWS), the Thoth deck by Crowley-Harris, and my own deck, the Spirit Keeper’s Tarot.

Using audio-visual learning methods, the series facilitates reading fluency with the four listed tarot systems. The card by card primer is designed to help with memory retention in a more visually engaging way than studying them out of a book.

Learn Tarot with Holistic Tarot (Video Playlist)

I also offer a structured, self-paced tarot tutorial series. This tarot tutorial is a companion course to Holistic Tarot, meaning it’s keyed to the contents of that book. While someone proficient with the tarot can follow along the above-linked video playlist with complete ease, it may be more difficult for a total beginner, unless that total beginner has my book and is following the free course syllabuses provided here, “Holistic Tarot Study Guides.”

If, however, you’ve got a handy copy of Holistic Tarot and you’d like a self-paced, guided, well-structured tarot beginner course, then start by downloading the “Study Guide for Tarot Beginners” (PDF) check out the below linked Companion Course, and go from there.
