Jim Larsen began his Fool’s journey in the fall of 2004 when working as a government contractor, he literally heard the call of tarot spoken in his mind with the words “Jim, study tarot.” And Jim listened. Buying his first tarot deck that very day, he put himself on a path that completely altered his life in ways he didn’t see coming. From the government offices of the Washington D.C. metro area to the volcanic jungles of Hawaii, this path has led Jim to such places as India, China, Switzerland and more.

It is has been in his travels that Jim discovered the vast storehouse of esoteric knowledge that we, as incarnated humans, carry within us. Each of us- we all carry in us the wisdom of the ages. This wisdom is there for our benefit. All we have to do is tap into it. Jim’s personal word for this storehouse is “The Silence” for it is accessed through meditation, bliss, joy, and moments of ecstatic joy. It is not reached in those moments when the mind is engaged. It is reached when the mind is quiet and we have no need of thoughts.

It has been through Jim’s exploration of The Silence and his voracious journaling of his encounters there that he has gathered the material for his popular “Knowings from the Silence: Simple Wisdom from an Enlightened Life” series of books as well as his tarot take on The Silence- “What’s Tarot Got To Do With It?: The Fool’s Path to Enlightenment.”

Jim is also the author of “The Double Oh Fool’s Guide to Tarot Mastery” and “Art is the Best Revenge: Poetic Deviance by Jim Larsen.” What’s more, Jim is a renowned poet and humorist on the Big Island of Hawaii. He has dappled in film making, t-shirt design, and has made a name for himself in both improv and standup comedy. Jim is a Reiki Master, Deeksha Blessing giver, tarot card guru, theHonolulu Tarot Card Examiner for Examiner.com and the creator of the Fool’s Path Tarot Deck, available from his website, foolspathtarot.com
