How are you? Jim & I were talking about you the other day because of the irony that we’re doing a couple’s / codependency workshop together! I’m facilitating it with another drug & etoh counselor, but Jim plays an integral part in making the material “real,” -role playing, psychodrama. And YOU”RE to blame! It really is a miracle that we got married and truly have a loving and powerful relationship. Our spiritual practice and focus on what’s true has been the saving grace. But none of it would have happened without your encouragement and guidance. We’re paying it forward. Robyn Winks
-From Kurt Swensen’s Blog For those with an interest or affinity for The Taro Posted on March 1, 2012For those of you who are interested in how Psychology and Tarot are brilliantly connected and how it might compliment your ongoing recovery, I recommend the work of Dr. Art Rosengarten. I recently spent part of an evening with Dr. Rosengarten and was rewarded with something deeply satisfying and complimentary to my journey into 2012.
As an introduction I listened to Art’s interview on Coast to Coast AM Radio (www.coasttocoastam.com) and found him to be exceptionally grounded and gifted in both the arts and the sciences. For those of you that are led, Art receive’s my endorsement as a gifted individual that can help add depth to your recovery process in a way you may not have considered.
Art’s book explains his work and The Tarot in more detail if you would prefer to read before contacting him. You can find it at www.amazon.com/Tarot-Psychology-Arthur-Ph-D-Rosengarten/dp/1557787840, or contact Art directly at www.moonlightcounseling.com
Best to all,
-As CEO of a mental health agency providing community based services in California and Nevada I have often benefited from Dr. Rosengarten’s consultation on a wide range of issues. I have also had the opportunity and privilege of knowing Art for more then 35 years as a colleague, therapist, author, poet, husband, father, and a dear friend. His therapeutic skills and his ability to integrate and utilize a wide variety of psychotherapeutic approaches based in the traditions of both eastern and western thought is exceptional. He has spent much of his adult life studying and employing the therapeutic use of archetypal imagery particularly as it relates to Carl Jung’s body of work and the symbolism of the Tarot. Although his knowledge is extensive the gift he brings to others through his work is his ability to assist us in understanding the complexity of our process and our choices for change in a clear and positive way that is both affirming and empowering. Barry Shea, Caminar Inc.
-I am so impressed by Dr. Rosengarten! He has given workshops and is fabulous and amazing with his preparation. It is well thought out, insightful, and his ability with technology is impressive. Art has a gentle way of confronting and questioning as well as a very spiritual view of life. He is sensitive, understanding, world wise, and humorous. I highly recommend him and know that you will enjoy him. Time will fly by. Garry Diamond

-Dr. Art Rosengarten is an excellent group leader. I was in a long term group experience with Dr. Rosengarten for many years. He has the rare ability to be both in control of the group and at the same time allow maximum freedom of expression. He comes to every group meeting well prepared; and he gives great power point presentations. I highly recommend Dr. Rosengarten’s skills as a group leader. Kathy Berkowitz.
–Art Rosengarten is the therapist who made me understand why my brain was programmed to make me feel so miserable, so much of the time. He understands our human tendencies, our ego drive, and he heals us with wisdom, his and the wisdom he pulls out of each one of his “students”. With his buddhist philosophies and his understanding of our western world, he guided me to find peace in my world, to see my problems as opportunities for solutions, to handle whatever life could bring with a healed mind. I have him to thank for saving me from a very sad life, and showing me a much better way. Yael Gmach
“Art Rosengarten offers us an engaging approach to oracle wisdom. His highly original interpretation allows us to explore openness and transcend fixed beliefs, without needing to begin with a problem or look for complex understandings.” Peter Fenner, Ph.D. author and founder of The Radiant Mind.
–“Studying Tarot with Art Rosengarten over the past 4 years has been a valuable personal as well as professional journey for me. I recommend Dr. Art Rosengarten’s Tarot group to any and all people (at any level of experience or knowledge) who are ready to understand themselves, others and the Tarot in a deeper and more meaningful way.” Yvette Lyons, Expressive Arts Therapist (aka: Kether1@webtv.net)
“In my practice… I used Tarot images only in amplifying dreams and sandtrays. Not until I read Dr. Rosengarten’s manuscript was I aware of the potential of Tarot. If I were still in practice, I would certainly try using it.” James A. Hall, MD, Jungian Analyst and author of The Jungian Experience and Jungian Dream Interpretation
“Rosengarten’s remarkable work spans the abyss that yawns between psychology and mysticism, and does so without diminishment to art or science.” Lon Milo Du Quette, author of Tarot of Ceremonial Magick and Angels, Demons & Gods of the New Millennium
