Reviews

"The Neuroscience of Tarot brilliantly bridges scientific rigor and mystical intuition. This unique and important book demystifies the complexities of neuroscience, presenting them in a manner accessible to all readers, whether they have a background in science or not. Ramakrishnan's masterful approach intertwines practical exercises with insightful narratives, offering a transformative journey into understanding the brain's role in intuition, psychism, and divination. It's an indispensable resource that stands out for its ability to show how our cognitive processes and spiritual practices intertwine in both an understandable and engaging manner. Whether you're deeply entrenched in divinatory practices or simply curious about the science of intuition, this book is a compelling read that promises to enrich your understanding of the human psyche and its mystical capabilities."
--Mat Auryn, author of Psychic Witch and Mastering Magic

"Neuroscience of Divination is an essential addition to the tarot reader's library. Learn how your brain works when engaging in psychic predictions or neuroforecasting. Dr. Ramakrishnan masterfully applies neuroscience concepts to the art of divination and reading tarot. This book offers invaluable insights into how a scientist might observe, hypothesize, and investigate the realm of intuition. Truly one of the most exciting and groundbreaking books to come out of the tarot world in a long while."
--Benebell Wen, author of Holistic Tarot

"The Neuroscience of Tarot beautifully bridges brain, mind, and body for an integral, practical approach to tapping into our innate wisdom. This is exactly the kind of work we need to synthesize modern biology with ancient intuitive traditions and practices."
--Mona Sobhani, PhD, author of Proof of Spiritual Phenomena: A Neuroscientist's Discovery of the Ineffable Mysteries of the Universe
