Thrill of the Fight – VR Boxing Match Livestream – Saturday, April 4, 6:00 pm PST

Since we are all cooped up at home during this terrible time of crisis, I thought it would be fun to do something live and active for the amusement of anyone who enjoys a good slugfest.

At 6:00 pm Pacific Time on Saturday, April 4th I used the incredible virtual reality boxing app called ‘The Thrill of the Fight‘ to square off against an AI opponent for 5 full rounds of boxing mayhem! I livestreamed it on my Mixer channel. This is the full stream.

I do an overall VR boxing tip session which is also a kind of review of the app. Then the fight.

The fight begins at 18:00.

Tarot Reading for Weekly Inspiration – December 15, 2019

Welcome to Transmutology Tarot.

Today’s reading is a 3-card spread on the question of where to look for inspiration this week.

Virtual Reality Tarot Readings in AltspaceVR

On Sunday, October 7 at 4:00 pm (Pacific Time) I will be hosting an hourlong Tarot reading event in VR at AltspaceVR. If you have a headset like an Oculus Go, Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, or Gear VR you can join. But you can also use a PC to join in 2D using the link below. You just download the 2D version for your web browser and then follow the link to get into the event.

If you haven’t tried a virtual reality social network yet it can be pretty interesting. I am going to try to pack this event with material, so I think it will stand out from the average VR gathering.

Even if participation is extremely limited I will do the readings and make it an hour to remember.

If you follow the link, you can RSVP and then the event will be easy to find on Sunday because it will be listed in the main menu in VR under Events – Interested.

It will be a great opportunity to do some 3-card readings and discuss the card meanings to deepen your knowledge of the fascinating world of Tarot. The readings will be done on a large screen inside a VR world and will use a fully randomized and complete 78-card deck.

Hope to see you there!

Tarot Reading for Weekly Inspiration – July 17, 2018

Welcome to Transmutology Tarot.

Transmutology is a new approach to the study of change. We wish to know about the art of transmutation and to practice it.

Can we find the precious gem of the true self? Can we turn obstacles into pathways? Can we become more aware of our true nature and the nature of reality?

Today’s reading is on the question of where to look for inspiration this week. It uses the Universal Waite deck.

The Tarot is used to meditate on our way of thinking about ourselves and the challenges of life. There is nothing psychic involved. There is no fortune telling, no prediction. ‘Suggestion’ would be a better word.

There is a question. Then the cards are read and their story revealed. The story may open one’s mind just the way walking into a room full of artistic masterworks can change a life forever.

My readings do not speak of how you will soon meet the person of your dreams. My readings talk about you, the questioner. The readings are an inquiry into how you actually are within a situation – how you may try looking at things, both consciously and unconsciously.

The Tarot is a marvelous tool for meditation. It creates unique visual impressions and stories full to bursting with meaning. All the stories revealed by Tarot readings bring something to the reader and the questioner. All Tarot readings are valid. They must simply have their subtle messages decoded by the reader based on his or her connection in the present moment with the questioner.

A reading stumbled upon in a video may have much to offer you in a particular moment. Enjoy the moment. Sit back, clear your mind of distractions, and follow along with the story of the cards.

The deck I am using is the Tarot of Marseille which is the oldest deck currently still in use. The minor arcana cards (the number cards) are much more abstract than the commonly used Rider-Waite deck. This leads me toward a method of reading that incorporates numerology. In other words, each number has a character which when combined with a card’s suit gives a meaning.

I will conduct more readings and they will all find their way here. I hope my readings are of service to you and begin a journey of awareness and eventual transmutation.
