The Essentia Cards and Layout

Welcome to the Essentia® collection of tools for meditation, inspiration, guidance, and discovery. The Essentia® Discovery Deck was created to help you explore and understand the thoughts, actions, emotions, and behaviors of yourself and other people. The cards in the deck represent positive concepts and can be used in various ways to promote a positive mindset and inspire new ways to reach beneficial outcomes.

Each card has a primary keyword defining the central concept that the card represents.  Three secondary words further expand the meaning of each card.  Normal use of the cards involves placing these cards on the Essentia Atom spread cloth, which is included with the deck.

The Essentia Atom provides the framework used to create a context for understanding the concepts embodied in the Essentia cards, and allows building a relationships between the cards.  The cards, when placed on the elements of the Essentia Atom, together create a larger and more complex concept.  The Essentia Atom helps in exploring both the full meaning of the concepts represented by the individual cards,  the larger concept of the cards together, and the overall meaning of the spread.
