Hi Peter - love the trailer footage mate - awesome stuff. I have a little one year old boy who can make it tricky to watch live but I will definitely sign up to watch, even I I catch up the next day. Really looking forward to it and hope you enjoy it too :). Hope all is well with you.

I'm super excited about the upcoming lecture. We have been quite lucky with the selection of performers who specialise in mentalism lately. Living in Australia it is quite unrealistic to fly overseas for a lecture, as fun as it would be. You've got to love what the Internet can bring us!

It's quite thrilling to finally get to see someone who doesn't have any performance videos available anywhere (except Portugal vid), and is held in such high regards by his peers.

It sounds like its gonna be a good one 😊

I've had the pleasure of having a one-on-one session with Pete via Skype and was essentially treated to a private lecture with the whole thing shaped by a running dialogue. While I hope that he got something from my end of the exchange, I certainly went away enriched.

He is insightful, creative, and has a gift for empathy that is (I think) the real key to the power behind his work. There is absolutely no ego here - he is genuinely a good guy. In my opinion, he's the sort that would have done this Penguin lecture for free, as it gave him the chance to talk mentalism simply because it is his driving passion.

I'm not surprised to see the outpouring of support for him here and elsewhere. It is well deserved.

Best,

Atlas

I messaged Patrick live with a little challenge for Peter. Peter performed on skype for me previously, but I really doubted he can guess numbers I thought of, and sent only to Patrick, but somehow Peter nailed it, and I had to pick my jaw off the floor. I genuinly can't think of a method for what he did. Mister Turner, you are, without a trace of doubt, living legend, and one of the brightest mind of todays mentalism. :)

The lecture was fantastic, Peter came in and he did his thing without holding back which is just what people needed to see. I was the first participant and if you think you got a headache watching then try being one of the people live in studio, everyone in the studio audience was attentively one edge like I've never seen before.

Pete is a one of a kind guy where he doesn't really need mentalism to blow you away, I walked in one day to him divining star signs, pin codes, ect without a *** thing being written down then drove him down High Street in Columbus last night and he had memorized every building in order on the entire Clintonville/Columbus after being here for only two days! There are so many other legends I could share from hanging out, but point is that everything you have heard is true and I doubted it too until I witnessed it all first hand. Great job Pete, you delivered inspiration and created another series of legends that no one will ever forget!

There have been a few people over the last few months saying that Peter was a nobody, being hyped by a bunch of friends.
They demanded proof in the form of videotaped shows, while hiding behind their own veil of anonimty and made-up-names.

Those of us who knew the truth were shouted down as cronies and hangers on.
Maybe now they'll be forced to admit their ignorance (though they never would publicly)
It's time for the doubters to wake up, and not just smell the coffee.
But strap on their life vests and grab hold of anything that floats, 'cause there's a tsunami a comin' to mentalism.

I'm going to have to politely ask you a question here...(as you have been inquisitive about pete before now)

even though you have evidence, can see it for yourself, see others witness it too - why can't you just give credit where its due? or to even think about whether you've overly harsh towards pete? to be open-minded...

I'm old enough to not really care about any kind of online reputation - and I've spent a little time with pete, and he is genuinely a good lad, and that's not even talking about mentalism or anything else...and he's young, talented and if you met him, you'd see that too...

sooooooooo...i guess I am saying (politely) to drop the current state of mind, and be open to a change of mind(pro)...

you know what happens to a rigid branch in the wind don't you...

and lets not forget, this was a LIVE lecture, no cuts, no edits, live and die by the performance...

I should make it clear that my post wasn't made as an attack or to start yet another Café war.
So no one needs to get upset.
But sometimes it's nice to be able to show that you weren't making things up.

I once discovered a track by Whitesnake that everyone else said was crap.
It got nowhere.
It was re-released with one slight change (the word hobo to drifter) and was a huge hit.
Felt very sweet.

Last night I had the pleasure of attending Pete’s lecture in person. I will try to keep the “hype” to a minimum, but I witnessed some incredible moments, so that could be difficult. I arrived early so I could have some time to meet Pete and get to know some of the other lecture attendees. From the get go Pete kept contact to a minimum and only wanted know my first name and nothing else. While he performed a few effects for us, he didn’t really interact with me or any of the other attendees. As a result all of the performances during the lecture where legit, and I (along with everyone else in attendance) were in awe during Pete’s performances! After the lecture he performed some effects and readings that I couldn’t (and frankly for the joy of experiencing wondrous moments didn’t want to try to) wrap my mind around.

If your goal is to improve your mentalism, your magic, your performance of art I whole-heartedly recommend spending the $25 (still discounted as I am writing this post) and enjoying the lecture many times over.

I rank Pete’s lecture up with Harry Anderson’s in terms of value to improving my performance and providing me with a bounty of food for thought. I would say that Pete’s lecture leaned towards the theory side (which I love), and the effects seemed to highlight the theory. But he does share effects and goes in depth while explaining. He even managed (through his explanation and discussion of techniques) to instill me with the confidence to start utilizing bold techniques in my performances. I had never had the opportunity to experience these techniques live and I am not sure how the power of them translated while watching at home, but Pete has helped me understand their value and effectiveness.

Pete discussed a wide variety of theory including the power and necessity of implication, observation skills, infusing your actions with credibility, confirmation principle, heat displacement, emotional relevance, creating a legend, the importance of being yourself and so much more. As far as effects, he performed an ACAAN, predictions, mind reading, a bit of reading, a p**k and a s****h, several forces, many subtleties, and more. I won’t make a specific list because I experienced a lot after the lecture and don’t want to mix them up.

Three things really stood out for me:
1) Pete has a passion for our art and joy of performing that permeates everything he does.
2) Our art deserves respect and I should perform as such (hard to do this point justice, but Pete does)
3) Take chances and I can create miracles

I could go on and on but my son will be getting up from his nap soon. Really the highest praise I can give Pete is I felt a true sense of wonder while experiencing his performances last night and he is a genuine gentleman that I would share a beer with any day of the week.

Enjoy the lecture!

I drove from Cleveland and missed work in order to see this lecture. I've never met Peter before but was very curious because of all of the threads about him on the Café. I think the above posters (esp Nathan) have done a great job describing the lecture and stressing the unscripted nature of his performance.

Here are some things that stood out for me.

Peter is super friendly and has a magnetic personality. Immediately upon meeting him he asked if I had a deck of cards (I did of course), asked me if I had a favorite card - I said the five of hearts. He asked me to start dealing and stop at any time. I tried to trip him up - I know the stop trick. I dealt about 30 cards but dammit I stopped at the five of hearts. He then did the same thing to the guy next to me. Blew me away.

The first effect of the lecture was an ACAAN that fooled me completely. During the explanation I realized that this was an effect from his ebook "Dare to be Bold" which I own. I remember reading it, thinking about it, but deciding that it wouldn't fool. I will be re-reading that book.

After his initial set, I don't recall him doing any more effects until right at the end but still found the lecture intense and interesting. He finished with a performance only of Isabella’s Star.

Afterwards we went to the bar and a few beers. Like I said he is very open, friendly, and interesting guy. He made me feel like one of his mates. It wasn't long before he had a few local girls under his thrall. I don't know - maybe he hypnotized them...

What a sensational lecture.

Some extremely brazen material... which had I read on paper, may not have impressed me much, as I would have passed it off, for me, as unusable.

BUT... having seen it in action, with the depth of explanation Pete provides... Im am now happy to say that I have been converted.

Great job Pete, Thank you.

Bugger - brought it last night! Well it was worth every penny anyway so no tears. I have loads of notes to go through from Pete's lecture and in the first set had that same feeling of astonishment that I had when I first saw Derren perform at Duncan Trillo's London convention back in the day...it's wonderful to have that moment when you can still think 'wow...perhaps this is REAL'!

This was easily one of my favorite penguin live lectures, yet. This was my first glimpse into Mr. Turner's thinking. I've been curious to see what all the buzz was about, and in very short time, I realized that he lives up to the "hype". More than anything, I was struck by how passionate he is. Forget the effects and the thinking - just listening to his tangents was incredibly inspiring for me. The standout, for me, was listening to him recount the story of the older couple in the pub. Seeing and hearing the emotion in that story come through was such a profound moment for me. Forget the effect he described - just listen to how affected by it he still is, to this day. It was a very inspiring moment, for me.

His confidence and willingness to take chances had the little hamster in my head running into overdrive. I've only begun to dabble in the riskier performance pieces in the last few years - and I can already see places where I can push my limits. This might have been my first foray into the work of Peter Turner, but I know it's not the last. Fantastic job, Mr. Turner - I would like to thank you for sharing your insight and passion!

I really enjoyed the simple P**k method that he described. I "tried" it out on a few people today - got the P**k right in front of them and, as Peter would say, "created a miracle."

I use Izzy's Star and raved about it in the thread about it on here - it really is a thing of beauty; not only in method but also in potential. You can jazz with it,use it as an out, standalone or incorporate into a larger routine etc. I'm amazed it stayed off so many people's radars for so long - everyone who owned it went crazy over it and were quite vociferous but it never seemed to become as widely known as its quality merits. Which in one way I was glad about as it has been a real goto routine for me since I got it but also it saddened me as I spoke to David Sena at length and to Pete (albeit briefly) and they are such genuinely nice guys I was really rooting for it to take off and get the recognition it deserves - I know Pete's other works are already highly sought after but this is a real gem that seems to have been overlooked. Good for me- its so strong I want to be one of the few using it, sadly/happily (depending on your perspective) Pete showed just how strong it is in his lecture so it might find its way into more sets.

Although its inclusion with the lecture was generous of Pete I truly hope it doesn't reduce the perceived value and quality of the material and that those who were given it as a bonus meditate a little on the possibilities and implications of what David and Pete created. I agree with the other poster that it is worth the price of the lecture alone but the lecture... man oh man WHAT a lecture! If this is the style of delivery that is used by Pete on his upcoming DVD set then it really will be the treasure I'm expecting it to be.

In short the lecture was presented clearly, passionately with great insight by Pete and also a VERY engaging delivery - the stories and incidental tips coupled with the killer material demonstrated made for one of the most enjoyable 3 hours I've ever spent at my computer (if you chuckled you have a dirty mind!)

Truly an inspirational lecture from an inspirational creator of inspirational material. You need this. You REALLY need it.

I read complaints at the Penguin site that the lecture was too heavy on theory without enough effects, but theory is exactly what I need.

Mike if you haven't got it, get it, it was a wonderful lecture, they are correct there were only maybe 6(?) effects done, but you will walk away with so much more,
as a performing mentalist I have grown after watching this, truthfully, it has changed the way I look at how I do my effects, you can tell Peter is very passionate about our art
and it shows, its also very contagious, I learned that as we learn to be better performers our performance gets better and truly impacts whoever we are performing for, Peter hit a home run with this
lecture, I'm glad I got it. And the effect at the end is WOW, that is all I can say.

funny you say that, because I sometimes am concerned about theory sides (because people can talk and talk but don't actually show what they mean), but the theory here was explained, not just some pipe dreams

like the mirror thing, ok it wasn't shown but we could all go and perform that no problem from the description, in fact, not seeing everything about it probably makes us think more, if you can't take a description like that and count it as an effect I don't know what to say

this is one of the reasons Penguin Live is great, Peter has great material and they produce it and make it so easy to see

Personally I don't think it's possible to be too heavy on theory provided the theory is sound. Given enough theory you can create an infinite number of effects yourself and massively improve the effects that you already do.

I have more than one reason to absolutely love this lecture. First, of all, it's amazing lecture. Best one I ever watched, and the second reason is that I really enjoy being fooled, and Pete constantly fooled me throughout the lecture, especially when he revealed the number I only sent to Patrick. I was very skeptical, and wanted to see him sweat trying to get it right, and then he fuc***g nailed it, I was blown away and every trace of skepticism is erased. Peter is a living legend of mentalism! I also found this lecture very inspirational, especially the part about emotional relevance, and it really gave me a lot food for thought. I know I'll have to re-watch it again and again to pick all of the little subtleties Peter shares and I'm really looking forward to see more from him.

all the best,

Peter Turner's Penguin lecture was wonderful and amazing. I'm so glad I got it. As others have already written, here and in review's on the Penguin site, the effects Peter taught are very strong, but the mindset he wants you to embrace: be bold, take risks, that's the only way to create miracles, is the real value. At least it was for me. But there's a lot more than that. The very clever psychology, the carefully worded phrases that create linguistic and psychological illusion, the well-thought-out subtleties - and the combining and layering of all of this into masterful presentation is so worth watching, then watching again and again to begin absorbing all of the content.

I discovered Peter Turner only a few months ago on this forum. Someone wrote that Peter would be the next big thing in mentalism. After getting two of his ebooks and watching his Penguin lecture twice, I think that's a prediction very likely to come true.

I was curious about Mr. Turner, so I downloaded the Penguin Live lecture, and was absolutely blown away.

I am an absolute cynic about magic and mentalism. There is a lot of unworkable crap churned out, but I have one word after watching Pete Turner's lecture: In-(add expletive)-Spired.

I watched the first half a few weeks ago, and was amazed by the effects he demonstrated. They fooled me more than anything I have seen in a long time. That is nothing in and of itself. Lots of things fool me. The eureka-moments came later.

Tonight I watched the second half, that had almost no effects. It was the greatest magic/mentalism presentation I have ever seen. It was an extremely inspired, articulate and cogent articulation about evoking wonder, magic and beautiful experiences for audiences. It was like watching a heavily tattooed (occasionally foul-mouthed) west-Yorkshire Russell Crowe-looking Aristotle of Mentalism... with the soul of a poet. Truly inspiring stuff. I took waaaay more away from listening to him talk than I did the effects he explained.

I'll never have the brazen balls to do what he does, but the nuggets I mined from the lecture will enrich my performances for a long time!

I love the effect and I must admit that I didn't find it particularly difficult, certainly easier than the average Magic square. It is well worth learning. I have a little tip which should only mean anything to people who have it but just to be cautious I will send a pm to Pete first and see if a) he thinks it's a valid tip and b) he thinks it's post able downstairs.

Late to the party but it was well worth it. This is the best lecture I have heard in some time. He warns the interviewer a few times that he will go deep if asked certain questions and deep he does go. That said you also get the impression 3 hours barely scratched the surface of what he has to offer. I thoroughly recommend this lecture, especially if the hype about Pete Turner has put you off. You will be spreading the hype after watching. You will also have a much better idea of how to create your own legend.

Well done Pete.

Agreed! This lecture was extremely inspiring for me. Peter's creativity and engaging manner really shine.

Just to say again, as I have said previously, this was a fantastic lecture and I'm very pleased to have had the opportunity to play host/interviewer for this wonderful event. I'm also happy to see that others enjoyed it as much as they have and are really getting,listening, and processing this kind of lecture. I hope it opens doors to deeper looks into mentalism and the type of lectures that come at us in the future from others.

Working in Isabella's star at the moment to replace my zodiac revelation mehod entirely.

With a little thought their 'astrological number' can be learned covertly. Rendering this a miracle.

As a testament to the strength AND workability(?) of Petes material here is how an impromptu performance went for me at the bar I run.

I was able to divine; a place she merely thought of, a secret 4 digit code, her Zodiac sign AND her EXACT date of Birth. At no point was ANY of this information written down. EVER. She left 100% convinced I could read her innermost thoughts.

If you haven't already, get this material.

A big thanks and big love to Pete! Keep inspiring brother.

For those of you using Isabella's Star who have a modern phone you need to purchase telephoto by Greg Rostrami. I've set up a fake numerology blog which gives the spectator a reading based on their numerology number. They view this on their mobile and I instantly know the number. Send me a pm if you want further info :)

Pete's lecture was great - and so was yours Patrick.

Love the Devil in Disguise.. For those who have the dvd and the lecture, will I learn a lot from the Penguin Lecture that is not already contained in the DVD? Not just effects, but all the other bits Pete uses to create his miracles.

I will buy the lecture eventually, but resources are going elsewhere at the mo, but I could be persuaded.

I felt like Pete covers principles and overall attitude more in the Penguin lecture, similar to the Ken Dyne interview on DVD set but more in depth. The type of information that makes everything you do stronger rather than a lot methods (which you get a decent amount of if you were lucky enough to get your hands on the DVDs). Don't think you can beat it for $10 an hour @ 3 hours long.

Probably the most valuable things I got were I'm not as scared of screwing up as much, and more willing to take chances.

There's an audio file of Peter's interview from the "Confessions of Real Mind Readers" series on the DVD. You have to pop the DVD in your computer to access it.

Just finished watching the Penguin lecture. Amazing stuff packed in here! The effects are great, but there is so much more in between. Extremely inspiring stuff.

I as well was blown away by Peter's lecture. It made me have a totally different perspective on mentalism and now makes me wanna learn a little bit more of it. For those who want to learn/practice this material are you guys purchasing Peter Turners Portugal Notes? Just curious what material you guys are learning from.
Message: Posted by: Olympic Adam (Aug 12, 2013 01:33PM)
Do you mean more mentalism or more of Peter's mentalism specifically?

Portugal notes are great, though I think having a knowledge of Peter's work previously helps to understand the way they really work, good thing you have the lecture then!

The Portugal video is entirely explained. If you like Peter's work, you like the Portugal clip and you have the cash to spend on it, I think you will find it a very good read.

Peter's other eBooks are also very good too.

Thanks Olympic Adam. I was mostly looking at Peter's work but now that you mention it I would be willing to explore other areas of mentalism as well. Currently at work I can't watch the Portugal video but once I get home I will be able too. I will have to look into Peter's eBooks as well.
Message: Posted by: Olympic Adam (Aug 12, 2013 02:58PM)
No problem, I find Peter's releases have most value when combined or played against other mentalism rather than just using his work. Take a look at some other threads, there are plenty where people have asked for advice on what to get. I think you would find even more value in Peter's material when you have a reference point of a routine that already exists or similar.

Was never a fan of Turner, thought he was just another hyped up new comer. Only got the download because I needed one more item for the Penguin $99 deal and couldn't find anything else. Well sometimes ya just get lucky. I was totally wrong. He was a real blue collar worker. Brillant approach, attitude and technique. I also was very impressed with another clip posted recently, with his book test and theme of "Don't judge a book by it's cover" Absolutely brillant.
