Books as card decks are a type of product that combines the best of both worlds: the portability and interactivity of a card deck with the depth and insights of a book. These decks typically consist of a set of cards, each with a different image or illustration, along with a companion book that provides more information about the cards and how to use them.

There are many different types of books as card decks available, covering a wide range of topics, including:

Tarot: These decks are based on the traditional tarot deck, which consists of 78 cards that are used for divination and self-reflection.

Oracle: These decks are similar to tarot decks, but they are not based on any specific tradition. They often feature more whimsical or abstract images, and they can be used for a variety of purposes, such as journaling, meditation, or creative inspiration.

Self-help: These decks are designed to help people with personal growth and development. They often feature images and messages that are meant to promote positive thinking, mindfulness, and self-care.

Inspirational: These decks are designed to provide motivation and inspiration. They often feature quotes, poems, or affirmations that are meant to uplift and encourage the reader.

Books as card decks can be a great way to learn about new topics, explore your creativity, or simply have some fun. They are also a great way to connect with other people who are interested in the same things as you.

Return to Mindfulness

EIGHT SKILLS TO LIVE, LOVE, AND LEAD FROM A PLACE OF CLARITY AND CONNECTION

Life is messy. And it’s beautiful. The Return deck offers a mindful lens for everyday life, to find beauty even in the messiness. You can draw cards to gain clarity about what’s happening and what’s important in the middle of a challenging day. You can also practice with the cards when life is good—to deepen your connection with all of life in that moment and make meaningful choices that benefit you, your loved ones, and the world.

Like a mindful friend, these cards are designed to be there for you when you need them.

Practice and play with the mindfulness cards to:

  1. Start your day intentionally
  2. Find clarity about a situation or relationship
  3. Make choices that are personally and collectively fulfilling
  4. Share a meaningful experience with a loved one
  5. Return to your present moment experience, possibilities, and creative insight

These cards are a work of love combining many hours of meditation, contemplative discussions, research, and a human centered approach to address the question:

What would help meditators integrate mindfulness into their everyday life?

The answers, we discovered, are relevant to everyone—whether you’ve been meditating for years or you’re not interested in meditation. Here’s the thing. Our minds enable us to see clearly, connect deeply, and find creative solutions. The same mind can also cloud our thinking, create divisiveness, and cause harm to ourselves and others.

While we may not have control over our circumstances, we can systematically and playfully strengthen habits of the mind that enable us to return to our innate capacity to know, feel, love, and connect with what’s important while staying open to possibilities.

More specifically, there are eight habits of the mind that empower us to be mindful in the real world:
1. Awareness
2. Compassion
3. Curiosity
4. Energy
5. Appreciative Joy
6. Inner Calm
7. Focus
8. Equanimity

Yup, based on the original mindfulness teachings and modern science, we can strengthen these eight habits that disrupt our default tendencies to rush and react and be mindful. This deck was designed to help you do that!

ABOUT THE CREATORS
Each card in this deck has been lovingly created by Dr. Shalini Bahl and Max Alaghband to meet you wherever you are on your journey.

Dr. Bahl brings her lifelong commitment to mindfulness backed by her trainings, award-winning research, and experience of teaching thousands of people around the world.

Max Alaghband brings his training and expertise in yoga and human-centered design, which informed the development, testing, and trying of this product.
