Our Cold Reading Workshop With Mark Edward

We had a great time at our cold reading workshop. Mark Edward was fun, funny and informative. We learned tricks of the trade, so that we can explain to believers what is actually behind the illusion of psychic readings.

Here are some great photos.

Learn Psychic Reading Techniques


Ever wondered how psychics can be so accurate?

What is the secret of “psychic powers?”

Learn these and other closely guarded secrets of the “Professional Psychic” and “Spirit Medium” from a person who lived a double life for over ten years, infiltrating the psychic market while on the Editorial Board of SKEPTIC magazine…


See the truth from the inside! 

Understand how someone can become an unwitting victim of bogus tricks masquerading as “speaking with the dead!”

“Mr. Edward is staking his claim to belong to a very special subcategory of magicians and mediums: those who both perform their crafts and debunk them. From Harry Houdini to James (the Amazing) Randi and the duo of Penn & Teller, there is a long tradition of magicians who believe that it is their duty to inculcate skepticism in the audience.” – Mark Oppenheimer, New York Times

Mark’s book “Psychic Blues” will be available.
