Art & Life with Sarah McAllister

Today we’d like to introduce you to Sarah McAllister.

Sarah, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
I am a San Diego native! I have always been an empathetic artist type and been drawn to pretty much anything creative or imaginative. I bought my first tarot deck in 2013 after a series of life challenges lead me to seek deeper answers and guidance. I’ve studied multiple resources to learn the practice of reading and intuiting tarot. Today my tarot practice and general belief system is informed by a combination of shamanism, occult practices, Buddhism, Christianity and a world of other philosophical and esoteric musings.

Can you give our readers some background on your art?
I am a tarot card reader! I typically read at local events and shops around San Diego and I also offer private readings via Skype and teach tarot workshops for beginners.

Tarot is so interesting because everyone has a different opinion about it/experience with it. It’s flown under the radar for years as something you do with a dusty old lady in a weird-smelling shop, until the recent revival of interest in the occult that our generation has taken to. We’ve been witness to the thorough collapse of the traditional American dream, so it’s no surprise that we are looking for deeper meaning.

Getting a tarot reading with me is like receiving a bit of therapy. I’m not a fortune teller and I don’t focus on the future; I’m more interested in practical applications of the messages so you can integrate them into your life to improve the quality of your present. We pose questions and as the cards come up, they tell a story about what you’re experiencing and then what we can do to best navigate that energy. I definitely don’t want to de-mystify tarot, because there is much about it that is vastly mysterious, but it is more accessible and practical than one may think, especially in the way I utilize it.

How do you think about success, as an artist, and what do quality do you feel is most helpful?
lots of sex (with myself) a knack for making meals from Dollar Tree items the occasional sacrificial offering

What’s the best way for someone to check out your work and provide support?
Find me on Insta @spirit. Cell where I post articles, upcoming events, specials, and random David Lynch Gifs.

I’ll be out and about this month at the Soul Flow Studio launch party in North Park on Saturday May 19th from 6-10pm. It’s going to be an awesome social event to celebrate the opening of Erin Bowman’s healing arts studio. It’s free and there will be tons of other SD creatives there.
