More About the Author
Paul Quinn is an author, teacher, and professional intuitive coach who is passionate about helping others gain insights leading to positive changes and greater well-being. He uses the Tarot as a tool to intuitively access the soul wisdom and guidance which he believes is present within everyone. Listed in 2004 as a "top talent" in Tarot by Chicago Magazine, he is author of Tarot for Life: Reading the Cards for Everyday Guidance and Growth(Quest Books).
Paul has been reading the cards for clients since 2000. He combines clairsentience, or the feeling he receives about the cards, with strategies to help clients integrate and act upon the insights offered. He uses the Tarot not as fortune-telling, but as a way to shed light on the influences -inner and outer -- that shape our life experiences, and identify opportunities for growth and transformation.
He picked up his first Tarot deck in 1998. The attraction for Paul was not just the cards but how their meanings corresponded with his lifelong studies in spirituality, mysticism, astrology, psychology, theatre, and human potential. The Tarot gave him the opportunity to integrate skills he had formally developed in practitioner certification programs from Chicago's NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) Institute, Oasis Center for Human Potential Facilitator Training Program (1-year intensive), and in numerous consciousness-oriented programs at the Omega Institute, CG Jung Center, and Association for Humanistic Psychology.
Articulate, humorous, and inspiring, Paul gives interactive presentations on the Tarot, synchronicity, and practical mysticism, which he calls "the spirited life." He has presented programs for the Swedenborg Library, Chicago Spiritual Advisory Council, Institute for Noetic Sciences, Theosophical Society of America, Unity churches, and bookstores. He has been interviewed on radio programs internationally and on Chicago-area television programs.
Paul has taught Tarot classes in the Chicago area since 2000. More than teaching card meanings, he describes his course as a vibrant, playful "soul classroom" for exploring the Tarot as a lifelong tool for charting an inner-directed path to growth. Internationally renowned psychic Sonia Choquette, author of 14 books on intuition, sums up Paul's dynamic and immersive teaching approach: "Paul doesn't teach the Tarot, he teaches you to channel the Tarot." His Tarot class attracts a wide spectrum of students, including homemakers, healthcare professionals, artists, life coaches, and entrepreneurs.
