Paul Quinn is an author, teacher, and intuitive coach who
uses the Tarot as a tool to help others reconnect to their inner
wisdom, potential, and well being. Quinn picked up his first Tarot
deck in 1998. The attraction was not only the cards, he says, but
how the philosophy underlying the Tarot converged with
spirituality, mysticism, metaphysics, psychology, and human
potential. A 1999 workshop with Tarot thought-leaders and authors
Mary Greer and Rachel Pollack gave him the confidence to pursue
Tarot professionally. By 2004 he was listed by Chicago
Magazine as a "top talent" for his Tarot skills. He provides
Tarot readings for an international client base from his hometown
of Chicago. Quinn has been teaching the Tarot in the Chicago area
since 2000. His courses attract a wide spectrum of students, from
soccer moms to psychologists, and incorporate storytelling,
meditation, movement, journaling, games, and other activities
designed to bring the Tarot to life. "Paul doesn't just teach the
Tarot," says internationally renowned psychic and author Sonia
Choquette, "he teaches you to channel the Tarot." An engaging and
inspiring speaker, Quinn presents interactive presentations on the
Tarot, intuition, and spiritual living, including programs for the
Swedenborg Library, Chicago Spiritual Advisory Council, Institute
for Noetic Sciences, Transitions Bookplace, and Unity churches. He
has been interviewed about the Tarot on Chicago-area radio and
television programs, on Australian and Canadian radio, and has
written Tarot-related articles for print and online publications.
An article he wrote in 2006 about Tarot in the movies was picked up
by numerous media outlets. Prior to his Tarot work, Quinn was an
actor featured in television commercials including Ramada Inn,
Time-Life Books, Montgomery Ward, Lowe's, and ShopKo.
Rachel Pollack is considered one of the world's foremost authorities on the modern interpretation of the tarot. She is a member of the American Tarot Association, the International Tarot Society, and the Tarot Guild of Australia, and has taught at the famed Omega Institute for the past 15 years. She is an award-winning fiction writer and has also written 12 books on the tarot. She lives in New York.
