Samovar Shamans: Meet Rowan Cutler, Samovar’s Tarot Shaman

Many of you have seen Rowan at the Tea Lounges, or received insight into your life as he read your cards over a cup of tea. He’s Samovar’s tarot reader, and in the coming months he will be writing a series of articles featuring modern-day shamans. Here, he shares about the synergy of tea and tarot:


Tea is ritual. You sip and pause. You watch the steam rising off the teacup. You make yourself empty and relax…ahh. The moment fills you up and you are recharged. Life makes sense again.

Tarot is ritual. You shuffle the cards and pause. You watch the cards arranged in a pattern. You make yourself empty and release…ohm. The images fill you up and you are renewed. Life makes sense again.

Now more than ever, we need easy access to refocus and remember our point of power! I invite you to take a deep in-breath and join me as we meet the Shamans in our Samovar community. They help us to re-find our essence. Each month, we greet a new Shaman and gain a new ritual to ponder as we take a sip from our steaming cup.

As Samovar’s “Tarot Shaman”, I want to extend a Namaste. I will be offering mini-divinations custom designed to fit into your Samovar teatime. You may only need one card to find your focus before yoga class or a full fifteen-minute spread to gear up for dinner with your Ex. Whatever the length, my dollar-a-minute mini readings will soothe your soul!

Please stop by for some Tea & Tarot. Bring friends and enjoy a Psychic Tea Party!
