I am sad to announce the closing of the Tarot Garden. MetaPlace will be shutting down their servers on January first, thus deleting the world containing the virtual world.
For those that are not aware of it, I created a virtual Tarot Garden in Metaplace last spring, a world where I devised garden spaces dedicated to the Major Arcana. Each of these tiny environments contain interactive images, animations, sounds and videos concerning placement on the tree of life and more. With plans of expansion adding more tools to teach Tarot Lore, I am personally disappointed with this news.
The reason that MetaPlace will be shutting down is very simple: the public did not understand the potential of MetaPlace and ignored it, mistaking it for “yet another game”. For the few of us that were able to harness the tools at hand, were are both disappointed and grateful for the opportunity while it lasted.
I wish to express my personal thanks to all of the staff at MetaPlace for providing the space, tools and support for this incredible opportunity.
Kirk, Sorry to hear the news, but some paths disappear in the middle of somewhere or nowhere. But there is always another path to find. Clif
I am considering re-creating this as a “stand alone” VR down loadable game. Would this be something you would be interested in?

I m very sad to read that the tarot garden is closing. It was a very great idea
I am currently working on a new version of the Tarot Garden, one that is not broken up (the original was in several levels due to the parameters set by MetaPlace) with more interactive portions, learning tools and references.
