The Secrets of the Waite-Smith Tarot Course

The Secrets of the Waite-Smith Tarot Course, drawing from years of exclusive research and access to private archives, reveals tarot material you will not see anywhere else – and will change the way you see the cards forever!

This 5-hour video course develops the work from the book Secrets of the Waite-Smith Tarot (Llewellyn, April 2015) by Marcus Katz & Tali Goodwin, which changed the whole world of Tarot.

Author and lifelong advocate of the deck, Mary K. Greer, has described the material as “astonishing”, “masterful”, “outstanding” and “truly fresh”.

Barbara Moore, author of more than thirty books and decks, wrote on the Llewellyn Worldwide site:

It is not often that book comes along that really changes the way we understand tarot. Marcus Katz and Tali Goodwin are incredibly thorough and dedicated researchers who have written a book that will change almost everything we think we know about the Waite-Smith Tarot.

Using Waite’s own writings (heretofore unpublished), visiting the place where the images were created, and immersing themselves in Pamela (Pixie) Coleman Smith’s world, Marcus and Tali answer questions about symbolism and design that we’ve only been able to guess at.

The book reveals completely new information on the actual source and meaning of the designs; new photographs of Pamela Colman-Smith and friends; new insight into A. E. Waite’s mysticism and the Majors; and much more, and now you can discover the true intent of the deck, its secrets revealed for the first time in a century, in our incredible 4-class (5+ hour) course!

Just finished the course”Secrets of the Waite-Smith Tarot” and I just wanted to thank Marcus Katz and Tali Goodwin for their hard work and magnificent new information. No one will ever look at Tarot the same way again. I’m sure you felt Pamela’s presence throughout the process of researching for this book. She would be not only honored that you presented her life and it’s work so well and in such depth, but I think she would be in awe at the enormity this deck has impacted not only those of us that read, but those that sit for us as well. Thank you both, this book you have written will be the biggest thing that has hit Tarot since the deck itself.
