Dirty & Divine: a
transformative journey through tarot
There is something sacred within you, in all that you are
and all that you do. In a mix of you that is everyday dirty, and spiritually
divine, there is something so perfect, something more. Welcome to your journey
back home; to your dirty, divine passage back to you.
Wherever you are, whether beginner or seasoned tarot
practitioner, Dirty & Divine is written for you, to accompany you on a
powerful personal intuitive journey to plumb the depths of your existence and
encompass the spectrum of wisdom that the cards can offer.
Dirty & Divine is a tarot-led vision quest to reclaiming
your femininity in all its lucid and colourful depths.
Dirty & Divine takes us on an adventure through the
magical world of tarot cards. Divination comes from the Latin verb 'divinare'
and literally means 'being inspired by a god'. You could say that tarot is one
means of putting images and words to the voices of Divine beings that offer a
higher perspective on human life on Earth! As always Grist is brave, funny and
very honest! You are in very good hands on this journey into mystery and will
discover the down-to-earth everyday benefits of tarot cards.

For anyone investing time, energy and passion in the journey
through the tarot this is a wonderful book with a no nonsense and well-grounded
attitude. I love the way Alice has so eloquently woven the tapestry of her life
into the tarot to assist the reader in understanding how life situations blend
with each of the tarot cards. For the beginner, this is a wonderful way of
retaining the information relating to the card meanings, making it easy for
them to revert back to the life situation for reference and understanding. The
book is split into manageable, easy to understand sections from the intuitive
sense of the card to Alice's own journey, harnessing their power and finally
the Dirty & Divine Spell-words to reinforce their meaning. I love this book
because it has such a different and refreshing approach to learning the tarot.

Dirty & Divine asks you to leave everything you know
about tarot at the door, kick off your heels and pour yourself a cocktail.
Forget fortune telling and learning key words, this is a real and raw look into
the tarot, how it works and how it can help us understand modern life. Alice
shares her own story with honesty, looking at both the shadow ('dirty') and
light ('divine') sides of herself and encourages us to do the same for real
transformation and even more importantly, understanding of the self. Reading
Dirty & Divine was like a night in with your incredibly clever and cool best
mate, getting deep and meaningful over a deck of cards and reclaiming the
Goddess within, both sides of her, dirty and divine.

Alice has been my go-to woman for tarot readings for years
now, because her truth, knowledge + wisdom are the REAL DEAL. In reading this
book, and what Alice shares within the dirty + divine pages of it, you will
have direct access to all that she knows (FYI: that's a lot), but what I find
REALLY juicy about it, is that you'll experience how to use the cards + the
stories, metaphors, signs + symbols they hold as a tool to help you remember
your power. The fierce self-love, the courageous + wild truth of who you were
before you forgot. Let Alice, the high priestess of the tarot, take you on a
journey of remembrance + reverence. The dirty + the divine.

Dirty & Divine provides a wonderful opportunity for
tarot lovers and spiritual souls. Real, raw, relatable and incredibly warm. You
feel as though you have a personal mentor and friend guiding you through the
magic and mystery of the tarot. Alice gives fresh insight to a loved esoteric
system along with real life reflections through her personal journey in her
life. The addition of ways you can work with each of the cards brings a
grounded understanding to the reader. Dirty & Divine is a book that will be
read more than once and have a well-loved place in my sacred library.
