"Paul Voodini is my kind of mind-reader, and his books are the kind of books I love to read. I feel Paul's thinking elevates him into the Greats instantly." - Luke Jermay

"I have one word for Paul's work - brilliant! Paul and I think along very similar wavelengths, and maybe that is why I love his work so much." - Neal Scryer

"It is my belief that Paul Voodini from the UK is the acting ring-leader and current champion of the new genre and generation of mentalism." - Jerome Finley

What will he teach?

Magician's Guide to Palm Reading - How to utilise quick, upbeat palm readings and integrate them into close-up magic and mentalism. This simple, easy to learn technique will elevate your magic and make you 'more than just a magician'!
 
The Hand of Destiny - This self-working miracle is Paul's signature piece, and was the centrepiece of his strolling mindreading set for many years. This routine will go straight into your repertoire!
 
The "No Magic" Magic Show - A collection of three self-working routines that demonstrate the magic of the mind without the need for any gimmicks, gaffs, or 'moves' on behalf of the performer. A wonderfully entertaining way to select a volunteer, but also a self-contained show in their own right.
 
Cold Reading - What is cold reading? Where does it come from? How can magicians and mentalists utilise this often misunderstood concept to make their magic more powerful? Paul explains all, and puts a few misconceptions to rest.
 
The Art of Finger Tip Reading - New and exclusive to this Penguin lecture, Paul will demonstrate and explain a totally new reading system, ideal for both a strolling/close-up environment or a parlour show. This system has nothing to do with the forensics of fingertips, but is an engaging and fascinating form of palm reading that can be used when light levels or the general atmosphere is not conducive to traditional palm reading.
 
Psychic Phenomena - Is it possible to provide tarot card readings from the stage? Yes it is, and this engaging, entertaining, and fun routine will demonstrate exactly how!
 
Past Life Regression - Paul demonstrates his super-powerful approach to past life regressions, and explains how to conduct them so that they are as fascinating and entertaining for the audience as they are for the participant. It is a much-used cliche, but this one routine really is as close as it's possible to get to 'real' magic.

Who is he?

Paul Voodini worked for many years as a full-time mentalist in the UK, specializing in the areas of mind-reading, cold reading, and paranormal entertainment. He originally worked almost exclusively amongst 'new age' circles, and the information he gleaned for this environment he condensed into his books to pass on to the mentalist community. Paul was originally very much a shut eye himself, and learned to read palms and the tarot cards way back in the 1980’s, before deciding to use these talents for purely entertainment purposes.
 
After many years of working full time, Paul now devotes his time to writing, both on the subject of mentalism and in the fantasy/horror genre. Paul’s books on mentalism and mind-reading offer practical, down to earth advice, and all the routines and performance techniques covered in his work is derived directly from the real world. The knowledge and experience he gained from working in these areas is distilled into his books, making Paul’s books hugely valuable tools for the magician, mentalist, the mind-reader, and the bizarre performer. 
 
One day Paul hopes to invent a time machine that will enable him to travel back in time and marry the Fox Sisters. (Google them!)

Best penguin lecture so far Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 3rd, 2016
If you a a serious performer, and want to start getting into cold reading,tarot, or pendulums this is the best lecture on that. Voodini is The authority on this kind of stuff. The effects in the lecture were all really good, it is the first time that an Out of This World effect made sense to me. As well as the past life regression, which i have never seen done on recording before. You are going to get a lot out of this, if this is what you are into, if you are into cardistry or illusions etc, you wont get much out of it, so don't get this if this does not fit what you want to do/learn.

refreshing Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 1st, 2016
Paul was fantastic!
Nice to see different reading systems explained for magicians/mentalists.
Be warned, the material may appear to be overly uncertain at times. There were no effects discussed, that I'm not chomping at the bit to use, but I'd be aware of their placement in a set.
I am also currently reading/watching Paul's PALM release, and I love that as well.
I'd say this is a GET for mentalism themed performers.

Blazing a trail for mystery performers Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 27th, 2017
This guy is at leading the way for mystery performers and Bizzarrists. He is brilliant. He has a kind and gentle way about him performers can often lack. An infinitely watchable lecture.

Good Lecture - Great Support for his other promotions Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 5th, 2016
I like Paul and have for a long time. His casual, informal presentational style works for me and is how I like to 'do it'. I have most of his 'stuff' via Penguin. I like that his presentations of Tarot, Palm Reading and others are reduced to a minimum (for Magicians) so it's like he has pre-screened these things and saves me a lot of time. Of course he is offering the benefit of his many years of experience and 'cutting to the chase' for what he is offering. So to me, what we are paying is pretty reasonable. By the method he suggested, regarding Tarot he said he learned it several months. I found it much easier than that but his point is 'don't be intimidated by the deck. I agree. Its no big deal and once you have it, you have it! As he points out, in the lecture and in his book, the pictures on the cards themselves are 'helps', so use them. If you are new to Tarot, definitely go with the Ryder-Waite Deck as that is the deck on which the explanations are based (from almost everybody). Other decks may be more confusing to learn with and less material available to help. I probably spent 2 hours a day for 3 days and my skills made the deck very 'usable' to me. He also points out, you can work with the 22 cards Major Arcana and hence, start there. Then, it's even easier. I have yet to use the other cards but I could if I wanted to. Regarding the lecture itself, I had some 'technical' difficulties that appear to have been 'not' at my end and so I docked them a star, but maybe the 'blank' is covered in the download. We'll see. If you have your own systems of card reading and/or are familiar with Foryer or Barnum they work into this very well. He rather 'down-played' them as he made a point about the 'ease' of his systems but for a couple extra days of practice with those types of 'Universal Statements' you add hours of variety to your repertoire. You need to know them 'cold' but again, once you have them, the applications and opportunities are endless. Thank You Paul! Good stuff!

Not good Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 3rd, 2016
I'm sorry. Mr Voodini seems like a very nice guy but I do not know what the point of this lecture was. I do not get the 5 star reviews at all. I understand it wasn't about tricks, because he is more of an esoteric performer I just found nothing of value in this. I just don't get it. I struggled to watch it in all honesty.

Paul is one of those few original unique creative artist that bloomed from humility imagination & sincerity the psychological concept & premise is developing command of adulation control this scripture encapsulates the concept
CEV The time is coming when people won’t listen to good teaching. Instead, they will look for teachers who will please them by telling them only what they are itching to hear.Its a soothsaying presentation fusing occult themes mentalism tarot
Chiromancy necromancy past lives regression every work of the devil that got the Witches burnt at the stake in Salem,This seems to be the new direction in magic entertainment .It's a informative lecture more on experiences then effects ,I was hoping he would have focused on routines but as food for thought it gets 5 stars

Divination at its best Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 29th, 2019
Fantastic lecture. It starts off a little awkward as the in house audience is smaller than usual. However once Paul gets into the swing of it the audience warm up too and it becomes a very special show indeed.

If you're a fan of Kenton Knepper or Luke Jermay you will be able to draw similarities.

Don't be scared of the methods he teaches and how close to "authentic" he appears. Remember your Tarbell and that everything you've learnt so far is the cunjuration side of magic. This is a rare opportunity to learn the divination side which is often forgotten by all but some of the best mentalists.

Real secrets Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 27th, 2019
Paul's work was never going to go down well in front of a group of magicians, so i can see why people aren't so impressed.

Would have been great to see it in the same format as some of the newer lectures where he presents to a lay audience then reviews the video and shares the methodology. Paul would have killed in this context.

If you perform for real audiences though, there's enough in here to go out and start making money with.

Something different. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 3rd, 2017
This is definitely not a tipical penguin lecture.
This lecture is great for those of us who were looking for something new, fresh and out of the ordinery to include to our arsenal.

In order to make the routines he teaches work you need to really engage with the spectators and seem that you actualy believe what you are doing. The things he teaches can be very entertaining or very boring for your audience depending on how much time you spend rehearsing and studing your matterial in order to be ready for every kind of reaction.

This is not for every audience and not for every performer.

Changed my whole approach Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 13th, 2017
I got this out of curiosity more than anything and it has been perhaps the most influential thing I've seen/heard/read. Paul's unique approach to mentalism and performing in general is like nothing else out there. The more "standard" routines have a different feel than usual, and the completely out of the box ideas are really quite special.
I'd recommend this to mentalists, bizarrists, magicians, even wannabe mediums.
