Atlanta gets Wild!: Actor, Mark Ryan and writer, John Matthews, to host an exclusive Wildwood Tarot workshop.

In a special limited engagement, John Matthews and Mark Ryan will be hosting a four-day special event to introduce and explore the unique world that lives within the Wildwood Tarot.    In 2011, John Matthews, a multi-award-winning and New York Times best-selling author, teamed up with actor and long-time friend, Mark Ryan, (“Nasir” in Robin of Sherwood, the voice of “Bumblebee” in Transformers, and co-host of L.A.’s  popular Combat Radio) to create the Wildwood Tarot. With the help of artist, Will Worthington, the three men brought this new deck to life, which is now in its third printing.

As the deck has grown in popularity, Matthews and Ryan felt compelled to hold a private workshop to offer their personal insight into the power and beauty inherent in the Wildwood deck.   Both men are passionate about the mystical and esoteric meanings deep within nature itself, which is the premise of the Wildwood Tarot.   Ryan and Matthews chose Atlanta and Seattle as the only two host cities in the U.S. for their Wild! Event.

For Tarot fans, the Wildwood workshop will prove to be a unique opportunity to meet and explore a Tarot system with the creators themselves.  The four days include three distinct and separate events.  First, the men will host an “An Evening in the Wildwood” on Thursday, night at The Phoenix and Dragon Bookstore in Sandy Springs.  The following day, both men will be available for Private Tarot Readings.  And, finally, on Saturday and Sunday, Matthews and Ryan will lead a two-day workshop that will include hands-on exploration of the Wildwood deck with shamanic journeying and spiritual meditations.

As this is the only southeastern Wildwood workshop on the tour, prior registration is required for all portions of the four-day event.   There are a limited number of spaces available.   The Wildwood Tarot decks themselves are currently available at all on line retailers and in stores.  The decks will be available for sale at both events for both signatures and for use.   To register, contact Ginger Wages.  Or go to their website at The Wildwood Tarot.  Contact the Phoenix and Dragon directly for tickets to the Thursday night event.

More About Mark Ryan:  Mark has been combining his acting, singing, and writing talents in a successful career ranging over 30 years.  He has appeared in dozens of film, theater and television productions both in the US and UK   He is best known for his role as “Nasir” in the classic British television series Robin of Sherwood and, more recently, as the voice of “Bumble Bee” in the hit film franchise, Transformers.  Currently, he can be found co-hosting L.A. Talk Radio’s top program: Combat Radio. However, his talents do not end at the ticket office.  Ryan is also a published author.  Before creating the Wildwood deck, he authored the collector status Greenwood Tarot and has written for such publications as DC Comics.  Ryan is also an accomplished swordsman and action director.  For a detailed bio, go to http://thewildwoodtarot.com/#/mark-ryan/4554006887
