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 design 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.
Also, I apologize in advance that this website is a hot mess. It’s like your grandmother’s attic (I hope)– a treasure trove of goodies that grandma is more than happy to have you take home with you. But you’ve got to find it first. 🙂

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.
Holistic Tarot: A Companion Course
A free online tarot course taught from my book Holistic Tarot. Enter the companion course at any level–beginner, intermediate, or advanced. Organize a tarot journal in a three-ring binder by downloading the study guides and handouts. Begin the course by watching the video lectures.
Sightsee the Tarot
Take a tour of the tarot with this ongoing educational video series. Discover new books and tarot thought leaders. Workshop classic tarot spreads or specialized reading techniques. Let’s explore all the different perspectives of tarot reading through the ages. This video course series of hands-on tarot workshops, 10 to 30 minutes at a time, will introduce you to a diverse range of approaches to the cards.
Sightsee the Tarot Video Series Page
Many of the video workshops include free tarot resources, reference charts, handouts, and workbooks for free download, so be sure to check the Series Page linked above.
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.

I and my buddies were analyzing the nice information found on your site while at once came up with an awful feeling I never thanked you for those techniques. Those boys were as a result glad to see them and have in effect in actuality been tapping into them. Many thanks for getting simply considerate as well as for opting for this form of impressive issues millions of individuals are really desperate to be aware of. My honest regret for not expressing appreciation to sooner.
Love your work, thank you so much. Do you have tips on how to delve into the I Ching?
Good morning Julia,
Have you looked under the course tab. There is a course available for the IChing.
Hello dear soul!
I’m so excited you’re creating a 2nd edition of The Spirit Keepers Tarot! I would love to buy a copy. I saw on a community page there are pre orders being made, but there’s no info! How do I pre order if I may please? And where do I shop for your other creations such as your books? Is it just me or are there actual secret portals leading to you in other dimensions!!! 💞
How can I pre-order 2nd edition?

It’s actually very complex in this busy life to listen news

obtain the hottest information.
I just wanted to say thank you Benebell so much for the work you do. I think you’re a prodigious genius! I love your Holistic Tarot and refer to it regularly and am sooo excited about the Vitruvian SKT. Sending good vibes your way!

I love your work, and your generosity is admirable, refreshing and much appreciated. ❤️
It’s a really great web site !
I like the deck you have created, but I also like the deck on the cover photo.. Under the hollistic tarot book, Do you know where I can purchase it, or just the name of the deck ? It’s not the regular Waite Tarot Deck
I have written to you many times on both of your mailadresses and still havn’t got an answer… Now I’m officially worried! I preordered the premium package of the Spirit Keepers Tarot a long time ago, and I have payed for it! Can you PLEASE send me a confirmation mail back on my order? -My mail-address is: email@example.com
Hi Salima: Oh no! We’re all caught up on sending out e-mail confirmations, so you should have definitely gotten one from our e-mail account firstname.lastname@example.org. First, check your trash or spam. Sometimes our e-mail gets stuck there. Second, did you send payment to the correct PayPal address? Best thing to do is follow up by e-mailing email@example.com. Because if you’ve e-mailed us at that address already, then we should have definitely sent a response to you by now. All pre-ordered decks we have on record have received an e-mail confirmation, so if that’s not the case, something may have gone wrong. =(
I love this, also I’m intuitive and amature to my gifts,, would love to correspond with you about which way to go with this gift of mine

My name is Dennis Perpetua and I’m the Blog Outreach manager at qualityguestposts.com. I saw your blog and decided to get in touch. I think that a lot of my clients will be interested in regular article placements, either paid guest posts (we provide an article) or sponsored content (you/your team write it for us).
This could potentially bring some good regular income for you or you business.
Would you be interested?
P.S.: If you don’t want me to get in touch again, please let me know.

Hi Benebell! I was wondering if “The Tao of Craft” is available for purchase through any other service? I’m eager to support you and even more eager to get the book, but for ethical reasons I don’t like to purchase directly from Amazon.
Hi Emma! Yes, you can buy directly from North Atlantic Books based out of Berkeley. I think if you research NAB a little more, you’re going to love them as much as I do! They’re an amazing press!

I have been learning much from you in all ways Tarot. Purchased The Holistic tarot last year. Your insights are amazing!
I ‘fooled’ around and missed the purchase of the SKT decks and tbh, I wasn’t that attracted to the First Edition. There was just too much there and I missed the colors. They also sold out so quickly!
I have recently been studying the deck images on your website and reading the incredible ton of information. The Second Edition is much more appealing to me as there are various shades of color, which makes the images pop.
I just wanted to thank you for your tireless service to all of us! I love your wit and your sarcasm and of course your willingness to share your boundless knowledge and insights!
Hello, my name is James in English. my original I do not use in U.S. Lee Wu Chan, also I was excited to know and find your youtube vlog thank you so much for your service to the Chinese community .
I wish we could work together first hand very important my belief in The Tao has great possibilities. Hope to hear and sometime see in Person .
A Buddhist tarot card reader nice
you reached the simulation hypotheses yet or you just here to laugh at noobs?
I’m very happy that you published the book of tao of craft….as I’m English educated that will benefit of my practice…as I’m not Chinese educated.i hope I can learn more and benefited it to help people and I hope I can personally meet you as a gratitude of thanks for your help and. Learn more from you
You had me at “Although some believe that the tarot can be used for fortunetelling, I don’t believe in fortunetelling.”
I don’t see how anyone thinks their future is already set in stone for them when it hasn’t happened yet. Revisiting some “now” thinking would be in order, in my opinion.
Forgive the pontificating. I haven’t had coffee yet!
Keep up the excellent work.
Ciao, will you make the tarot again? I wish I could buy them🙏
