    Jacob and Judy use the OSHO Zen Tarot Deck and pull the major arcana card, II Inner Voice. We talked about listening to our inner voices and how that can look. Judy shares some experiences hearing/following that voice and other times that she did not recognize it. We also spent time talking about the story of Judy and my Dad meeting, starting their relationship, and what led up to the murders he committed.

    We spent time talking about getting released from prison and some of the challenges with that. Pager (2003) shares some of the challenges that people face after incarceration. My father wasn’t Black, but all of the problems in the prison system are exacerbated in the Black and ethnic minority communities that it is crucial to understanding. Writing in the Atlantic, Coats (2015) provides some meaningful context to this plight.

    Jacob and Judy pull the Major Arcana card XXI Completion from the Osho Zed Tarot deck. We decide that completion is not always about the specific result but is more of a phase that we go through. There can be many completions that happen. We talk about the need to slow down and look at Judy’s morning ritual as a way of centering herself and connecting with the land. We also discussed our Indigenous ancestors and the land we live on, and how we should be honoring those that came before us.
