Devin’s love of tarot, and of all things mystical and esoteric, was sparked in 1981 when he received his first tarot deck and Eden Gray’s “A Complete Guide to the Tarot.” The Den’s Maverick Mystic stays abreast of evolving tarot techniques through studying with tarot luminaries at international conferences such as The Readers’ Studio and the Kingston Tarot Lenormand Conference. Over the years he’s also had the wonderful opportunity to meet, study with, and be inspired by Mary Greer, Rachel Pollack, Marcus Katz, and many, many others. When the opportunity arose to become immortalized in a tarot deck from his favourite deck artist, Devin leapt at the chance, so he is now, and will forever be, a King of Wands.
Devin officially joined the Den at the start of 2020, and at that time he still had his full-time gig in academic administration. He left his 22-year career at the University of Toronto in 2021 to follow a yearning for the simple life of a spiritual path. These days, he begins most days with a morning walk to Lake Ontario where he communes with nature and meditates with the sunrise. (Follow along on Instagram @thedevy.)
