What You'll Do
You may associate tarot readings with a caricature of a cloaked soothsayer peering into a crystal ball, but urban shaman "Mama" Donna Henes has turned the mystical trade into an art form. Over a cup of tea, Mama Donna walks you through a tarot deck and explains the significance of each card, all while helping you tap into your inner psychic abilities. If you're skeptical about the cards' utility as a tool for foreseeing the future, Mama Donna also details how they can be used as practical guides for day-to-day living and finishes the session with a miniature reading.

Urban Shaman and Spiritual Healer
Thirty-four years ago, Donna Henes embarked on a nine-day solo vision quest where she fell under the spell of the tarot—and she's never looked back. Since then, she's consistently extracted meaning and guidance from these simple cards, bringing her insights to people all over New York City and beyond. Mama Donna—as she's affectionately known—was even dubbed "the unofficial commissioner of the public spirit of New York" by the New Yorker, and has contributed to the Huffington Post, Beliefnet, and UPI Religion and Spirituality Forum.
