In 2014, #1 best-selling tarot author Marcus Katz taught two weekend workshops to a small group of personal students.
This was the first time he had offered this 1:1 teaching in over four years due to a busy writing and touring schedule.
You can now sit-in on all four days of these unique workshops and take your tarot to a whole new level with our recording of those sessions!
You will receive handouts and your choice of the two courses (or both!) on USB stick, due to the sheer size of the recordings; both contain up to NINE HOURS of packed tarot material, techniques, insights, and skills.
Watch this sample video as in just nine minutes selected from the second weekend, an absolute beginner is introduced to fail-safe tarot reading, timing, and shows how much they have already learnt about reading in just a few hours.
Both courses are complementary and include different materials; both also contain our Tarosophy method of teaching Tarot in Ten Minutes – fully explained and explored with absolute beginners and experienced readers alike.
