Alan performing tarot readings at The Goat public house Shepperton, on St Georges day 2016.
Not only is Alan co-owner and clinical hypnotherapists and psychotherapist at Wise Blue Owl Therapy Centre in Ashford, Surrey, Alan is also a practising Shaman.
Many would not understand the philosophical elements of mind, body and soul to the depth that the Shaman study. In fact, this understanding dates back 1000s of years and deep routed in the sub Siberian, outer Mongolian & Tibetan philosophy of deep meditation and out of body soul journeying. Not for the faint hearted and in many of these geographical areas a Shaman is still considered to be half man and half spirit, not only having the wisdom, healing power of this world but also the wisdom and healing power of other worlds and dimension's, one who understands life and death in all realms and dimensions, the benevolent and malevolent.
What is known, is that tarot reading developed as it is seen today, around the 12th century, one bizarre twist it is the depictions on traditional tarot cards are from the shamanic philosophy that are the structure of the graphics seen on tarot cards today.
Alan is regarded by many as one of the best tarot readers they have come across, "maybe it is his Shaman links that make him this?" who knows.
But what we do know is that Alan is one unbelievable, fascinating and accurate tarot reader.
