The Mysteries of the Black Madonna tarot decks


The Mysteries of the Black Madonna decks have arrived and I can say that

I am so excited to share these cards with you.

The cardstock is thick yet light.  I used a much thicker board than previously.
The corners are die cut digitally and they are perfect.

The edges are now matte black laminated and the finish of the cards is a non-scratch matte.

The decks now come with a new pouch in a linen type material with the holy card of the Black Madonna of Bavaria transferred on (in the style of the Mysteries of Mary tarot deck)

Sets also come with a black rosary and a black 3D printed figurine of the Black Virgin
and of course the guidebook.

Details on my website at www.hergracesacredart.com

I will be sharing updates on the second edition of the Mysteries of Mary soon.

I invite you to join the Mysterium of Mary on Patreon and receive in-depth posts on the path
of Marian Shaktypat and the Three Marys.

New Mysteries of the Black Madonna decks


I have copies of the Mysteries of the Black Madonna tarot decks arriving at the end of May.

I offer pre-orders on my website at www.hergracesacredart.com
Currently these are locked for patrons of my patreon as this is one of 
their benefits of supporting my work on an on-going basis.

The Mysteries of the Black Madonna deck now comes with black edging

I am also crafting a new bag for the decks, similar to the style of the Mysteries of Mary decks.

The bag is black, with the gold satin lining and trim, but now with an added

holy card of the Dark Mother and Holy Child.

Pre-orders will be opened up on Sunday 21 May 2023

Mysteries decks are shipping


I have started to ship the pre-orders for the Mysteries of Mary and the Black Madonna decks.

Some orders are delayed by a week or two by delays in the supply chain.  We
are dealing with heavy load shedding in South Africa and everything is taking longer, but all orders are being shipped.
When your parcel is handed in with the couriers, you receive a mail with all details, from my online store. 

I am waiting on another small batch of both decks and these will be put on sale as soon as they arrive,  You can subscribe to this blog for updates or to my Patreon as patrons are notified first

I work with a small boutique printing company, with a green footprint and every step of the way is done by hand.  All parts of the deck set is handcrafted and it will not be perfect but small irregularities do exist.  It is a unique work of art.  I do not have access to the big deck printing presses in the rest of the world.

The Mysteries decks in Marian Library of Dayton University
I once again have very exciting news to share with you. Both the Mysteries of Mary and the Mysteries of the Black Madonna have been acquired by the Marian library of Dayton University in the US. The Marian library is one of the biggest academic resources on Virgin Mary. Both the decks will be displayed in an art exhibition curated by Dayton University at the end of February. The librarians have promised to send photographs of the exhibition which I will share with you.


Imaging Pilgrimage
AND the book Imaging Pilgrimage by Dr Kathryn Barush, academic, pilgrim and Marian devotee, is now available in paperback at $26. Which is amazing as the hardcover sold for $180. Its published by Bloomsbury Publishing. I shared details previously of the beautiful book in which the entire chapter 2 is dedicated to my work and the Mysteries of Mary tarot deck. It also contains colour photographs of some of my earlier work.

Mysteries of the Red Madonna
As the Red Madonna deck is unfolding I am getting excited to share it with you. It will be completed by September this year.
When I travel to Haridwar with a small group of Flamekeepers on pilgrimage in September, I will buy sarees from
which I will make the deck pouches. I will take the material down to the Ganga to be blessed before bringing it back with me. I will also bring back malas to be included with the deck. This will probably only be for a limited number of decks, patrons will get first choice.
Most of the altars are covered in pieces or trim of saree cloth

Updates on Walking with Mary and the Hearth of Mary

 Mysteries of Mary and Mysteries of the Black Madonna tarot decks are on sale. 
I only have a limited amount of decks available and shipping will take place 
January 2023.

The decks have arrived and these are pictures of this new printing.  It has taken 18 months
to find a printing company that was willing to co-ordinate various requirements and the
results are good. 

Since Covid19 South Africa's economy is crippled and the national postal services have collapsed,
I tried shipping out stickers to my patrons on Patreon and only a handful arrived in Europe and very few in the US.  There is no international tracking available and lost parcels simply just disappear.
The only option I have is to send decks with DHL Courier Express and it is very
expensive.  The only highlight is that if you live in the US and UK you do not pay custom duties as I ship these as printed matter.  Shipping prices start at $70 and some are even higher, but I have put up a flat shipping rate and I am subsidizing the extra.

Buyers will receive an email from my website when the parcel is handed in with DHL and you will receive another email from DHL with tracking details.
Delivery worldwide takes between 4 and 10 days depending on the world zone.

My many blogs (links in the sidebar) have all migrated together to an online Patreon
community at http://www.patreon.com/walkingwithmary
I share on-going themes of the journey with Mary, both spiritual, astrology and tarot.
I focus on various monthly and yearly themes and tiers start at $2 per month.
The highest tiers give you entrance into the Order of the Dove with initiations into
the spiritual path as Flamekeepers.

I also share the creative and spiritual journey and undertaking of creating the Mysteries of the Red Madonna, and Her Beloved tarot deck.

In 2023 I am travelling with 7 Flamekeepers to the cities of Haridwar and Varanasi on a shaktypat retreat.  I still have one space available

Shaktypat Retreat and Yatra to the holy cities of Haridwar and Varanasi


A yatra/pilgrimage to the holiest city of the Kumbh Mela in India, Haridwar and Benares (Varanasi) City of Lights.  I have travelled to India many times since 2009, with groups, on my own and also leading workshops and retreats.  Accommodation has been booked in my favourite holy house (haveli) in Haridwar. 

We are a small group of pilgrims travelling from 15 September to 26 September 2023 and I had one cancellation which means that I have spot available on this retreat/yatra.

If you are interested please send an email to me at hgsacredart@gmail.com and I will send all the details.

Aarthi and darshan at Hari ka Paur ghat in Haridwar

15 to 26 September 2023

Haridwar, holiest city in India, Kumb Mehla site

Five nights in the hundred year old pilgrim house, Haveli Hari Hotel, on the Ganges.  I have stayed at the Haveli during each of my visits and am always yearning to return.

We will be staying in the beautiful Heritage Rooms.  The hotel is right in the religious district of Haridwar and we will walk down to aarthi at the ghat and meander through the market stalls selling religious items.  We are within walking distance of the promenade where sadhus sit and 'teach'.

The Hari Haveli has a private indoor temple, a private bathing ghat and an in-house priest for special ceremonies or ritual.

This part of the pilgrimage will include initiations, kundalini mantra, shaktypat, diksha as well as puja by myself. Also the very powerful interaction at the Hari Ka Paur Aarthi with personal participation.


Group meditations, initiations and shaktypat will be held in a private meditation/yoga room in the hotel to coincide with temple and ashram visits and Aarthi.  There will be a few hours each day for rest or exploring the markets and walking along the Ganga. Both Haridwar and Varanasi are yatra destinations and the markets supply pilgrims with malas, khumkhum, sandalwood, shawls, statues, silks and much more.


We will attend aarthi at Har Ki Pauri ghat; you will be able to float prayer flowers down the river and buy garlands as offerings to Ganga Ma.  The Haveli offers an inhouse temple and priest, a private ghat for ceremony and ritual as well as a private bathing ghat.

Excursions are booked to the ashram of Anandamayi Ma

- a full day visit to Rishikesh and its ashrams as well as attending aarthi at the Parmath Niketan ghat

- a visit to the Chandi Devi temple

- a tour of the many temples of Haridwar

and special restaurants.

Transport has been booked between cities; a combination of rail travel with first class seats and flights.

Aarthi on the main ghat of Varanasi (Benares)

Varanasi (Benares)

We will be staying in the pilgrim house Amritara Suryauday Haveli, situated on the main ghat of Varanasi.

Our time here will be spent  :

- an the evening boat ride on a private boat on the Ganges. You will have the opportunity to place flowers on the river with your prayers. We will witness the incredible Aarthi to Ma Ganga from the boat and see the spectacle in all its magnitude.

- dawn boat ride on the Ganga. We will travel down to the burning and bathing ghats and witness the city of Varanasi engaged in its ancient sacred rituals. We will explore temples along the ghat

- a visit to the Durga temple

- a visit to the Kashi Vishwanath temple, known as the Golden Temple, one of seven all across India
