Paul Voodini presents a highly entertaining and interactive way of providing tarot card readings from the stage. This wonderful routine is ideal for both parlour and more intimate presentations as well as working fantastically with larger audiences of 100 and more. This routine combines the classic theatrics of old school mentalism with more modern requirements of being upbeat, interactive, and engaging. Whether you're performing in front of a dozen friends or in front of a full theater, this PDF will demonstrate to you exactly how to provide 30 minutes or more entertainment with nothing more than a pack of tarot cards and (optionally) a few gemstones. This routine will work equally well as a stand-alone presentation or as part of a larger mentalism/magic show.
Written in Paul's usual engaging manner, Psychic Phenomena is a routine that is beautifully simple while being amazingly engaging. A real worker from a real working pro.
Please note: this 10 page PDF will not teach you how to read the Tarot cards (or any other oracle system). It will be assumed that you already have that knowledge. What Psychic Phenomena offers is a wonderfully interactive way of providing stage readings for those who already have experience of the Tarot. Therefore it is not recommended for those who are yet to be comfortable providing Tarot readings.

Disclaimer: I didn't purchase this item from Lybrary but rather directly from Paul some years ago.
Recently Jermay released his "Tarot Psychometry" routine (end of 2019) and there was a reference to this item as well.
First of all let me tell you the review below by "Greg" is unfair - this manuscript details the entire "script" or presentation of this routine in front of an audience. The idea in itself (even without the script) is novel and worth knowing in itself.
Of course you need to provide your own readings; this manuscript is the script and outline on how to present this routine.
If you are interested in the idea, then I believe you will like this inexpensive ebook.
On the other hand, Jermay does not credit Paul, and probably he should.

I'm sorry, but this e-book is rubbish. At ten pages, it is ten pages too long, as its only advice on how to give an interactive tarot reading from the stage is "Call the name of the card out in a loud commanding voice and hold it up high. Then deliver a short, punchy, up-beat reading for the audience member based on that card." It never gets any more specific than that.
The rest of the 'manuscript' is about how this kind of gig is better than lugging records around as a DJ or how important it is to hold your female volunteer's hand and be polite.
