Monte Farber was born in Brooklyn, NY. He studied comparative religion and became interested in astrology in 1974 when he met his future wife and artistic collaborator, Amy Zerner. "Amy was studying astrology and I was studying Amy, so I learned astrology! It became our language of love." Farber's desire to make astrology understood and accessible to a broad audience led him to devise "Karma Cards: A Guide to Your Future through Astrology," having sold over 200,000 copies in ten languages. Farber and Zerner went on to create books, book/card sets, and unique kits that also made other esoteric systems accessible, such as the tarot, alchemy, The Goddess, talking boards, meditation, shamanism, psychic development, and relationships. Farber is now the world's foremost creator of interactive personal guidance systems. Almost two million copies of his 40 books, divination systems, and DVDs and CD-ROMs have been published around the world in twelve languages by St. Martin's Press, Simon & Schuster, Penguin Books, Chronicle Books, HarperCollins, Tuttle Publishing, U.S. Games, and other publishers. In 2006 Monte inked a deal with Sterling Publishing to publish exclusive titles that are distributed by Barnes and Noble nationwide. His best selling titles include Chakra Meditation Kit, Karma Cards, The Enchanted Tarot, The Psychic Circle, The Pathfinder, Gifts of the Goddess, The Healing Deck,and The Instant Tarot Reader.
He has applied his psychic gifts and creative method to his career as a successful book packager, not only conceptualizing, writing and designing his many divination projects, but acting as his own agent, lawyer, production supervisor, manufacturer, and secretary. He uses the same creative approach in all his various roles as he does when creating art and making his business work so well under the pressures of the “real” world.
Before his career as an astrologer, author, and spiritual businessman, Monte worked as a Location Manager in the film business developing his first interactive creations and trying them out on actors such as Tom Hanks, Michael J. Fox, Shelly Long, and Lord Richard Attenborough.
An essential characteristic of Monte’s creative approach to living is his childlike sense of wonder, playful fun, and adventure. He is uniquely qualified to teach the creative approach not only to those interested in the creative arts, but to all who want to access and use their innate creativity to enjoy their life more and do their job better. To Monte, spirituality and creativity are, essentially the same thing. Understanding either of them requires the knowledge that unseen forces and ideas both within us and without us create, to a large extent, our experience of reality.
Amy Zerner is one of the leading collage artists in the world. She uses an appliqued palette of found materials, vintage textiles and amulets to make her worlds of wonder rich with layers of meaning and imagination.
For thirty years she has used her prodigious talent to create more than eight hundred works of art, all of which embody and convey the inspiration and healing power she has experienced through her study and personal application of ancient sacred teachings.
Her pioneering and unique artistic style was recognized by the National Endowment for the Arts with a major fellowship in the category of Painting.
Her collages appear throughout the forty best-selling books, including The Enchanted Tarot, The Tarot Discovery Kit. Chakra Meditation Kit,The Truth Fairy, and The Healing Deck all of which she has co-created with her author husband, Monte Farber, with close to two million copies in print around the world in twelve languages.
Her one-of-a-kind Spiritual Couture jackets can be seen at Bergdorf Goodman in New York City and at select Neiman Marcus stores. Her work is in the collections of numerous corporations and prominent individuals , including Elizabeth Taylor, Patti LaBelle, Oprah, Martha Stewart, Marianne Williamson and Michael J. Fox.
Living an Enchanted Life: Divination, Intuition, & the Law of Attraction
In this workshop, Monte Farber and his wife and artistic collaborator, Amy Zerner, will share the Law of Attraction tips and techniques that helped them manifest their dreams -- while exploring the role of divination and intuition in helping you identify and achieve your goals.
In 2003, after a particularly hard year for their home-based business, Monte and Amy started visualizing what everyone told them was absolutely impossible: having their own shelf in every Barnes & Noble bookstore to sell as their many self-help books and divination systems to guide other people to realizing their own dreams. They mocked up the bookshelf and printed a little sign with their Enchanted World logo on it to help them visualize their goal and feel like it was already real. In 2007, they saw their dream come true – when they got their our own shelf in every Barnes & Noble store, complete with their Enchanted World sign.
This was far from the first thing they've manifested their lives. Monte and Amy discovered these principles early in their life together. Feeling deserving, grateful, and happy helped them create a truly enchanted 32-year marriage. Knowing that they were the creators of their own universe through the Law of Attraction has allowed Monte and Amy create their favorite miracle: spending every day being together, doing the work they love – spreading the word about the power of visualization, divination, affirmation, and intuition through their series of 36 books -- with nearly 2,000,000 in print in 10 languages, published by some of the biggest publishers in the world.
Everyone in their workshop will receive Amy & Monte’s new

Unlocking Your Intuition: 10 Easy Steps for Making Difficult Decisions
Whenever you have a difficult decision to make—switch or find a job, home, or even partners—everyone tells you “Rely on your intuition.” But how exactly does a person know to even use their intuition, let alone trust it implicitly?
We’ve all been given the great gift of our Sixth Sense, intuition, and Monte Farber and Amy Zerner can teach you how to use and develop it in ten easy steps. Successful people make successful decisions. Ask them and they’ll all say that they “Go by their gut,” “Fly by the seat of their pants,” or are “Lucky guessers,” but what they mean is that they listen to their intuition - that small, quiet voice inside of us that knows the right answers and is trying to tell them to us, if we’d only listen.
1) WE ARE ALL BORN INTUITIVE
Intuition is like a muscle; you need to exercise it to make it strong.
2) DYSFUNCTIONAL RELATIONSHIPS MADE YOU PSYCHIC ALREADY
Living with chaos forced you to become self-defensively sensitive to those around you.
3) STRESS BLOCKS INTUITION
Relax. Breathe easy. Close your eyes if you can. Feel surrounded by protective energy.
4) ASK AND IT WILL BE GIVEN TO YOU
Ask your question like you’re asking an expert who wants to guide you – you are, you!
5) FEAR IS THE DESTROYER
Have no fear of what you’re about to learn, it will short-circuit your intuition.
6) YOUR INTUITION SPEAKS IN FEELINGS & SYMBOLS
If you feel a contraction as you ask, that’s a “no.” A “yes” feels like expansion. If it’s about a situation, close your eyes and observe the “screen” of your “mind’s eye.
7) LISTEN TO YOUR FIRST IMPRESSION
Don’t judge or second-guess how you feel or what you see, no matter what happens.
8) METHODS TO HELP YOU FOCUS YOUR INTUITION
Staring at a single point or image can diffuse your consciousness and increase intuition.
9) PRACTICE EVERY DAY
Try using your intuition to guide your decisions but don’t rely on intuition alone yet.
10) NOTICE THE SIGNS & SYMBOLS AROUND YOU
Patterns of numbers and words, and coincidences are trying to tell you something.
Amy Zerner and Monte Farber have spent the last two decades helping thousands of people around the world learn how to listen to their intuition. With nearly two million copies of their intuition-building book/games in print in ten languages, they are experts who can explain their intuition-building techniques in a way that is both fast and fun. They will end the workshop by doing quick intuitive readings for audience members.
POWER ANIMALS: An Interactive Workshop
The Animal Powers Meditation Kit is designed to help you embody the special strengths and attributes of our Totem Teachers. Each of the animals has its own special lesson to teach. Amy and Monte will take you on meditative journeys with their twelve Animal archetypes, complete with images and music.
Then, they will have you take their Animal Power quiz. You will take a few moments to think deeply about the message that each of the twelve particular animal embodies. You are asked to answer yes or no to four questions for each Power Animal. After you have answered them all, the one you have the most “yes” answers next to is your Power Animal, at least for this time in your life. It would be a good idea to learn all you can about the ways of that animal. If you have four yes answers for more than one animal, which one are you the happiest to be like? That is your Power Animal.
1) CAT – confidence
2) BISON – prosperity
3) RABBIT – opportunity
4) TURTLE – protection
5) DOLPHIN – creativity
6) HORSE – strength
7) DOVE – peace
8) SNAKE – passion
9) OWL – wisdom
10) BUTTERFLY – freedom
11) DOG – friendship
12) Lizard – change
The Animal Powers Meditation Kit reminds us that the other creatures that inhabit Mother Earth are not pests, enemies, or ours to do with as we will. They are our sisters and brothers, our friends and neighbors, and they can be our teachers if we will only listen to the lessons they teach us by their very being. The Wheel of Life tells us we are all connected. A shaman knows these things and more and protects the interests of all creatures, for she knows that anything that is devastating for our animal friends is bad for human beings, too.
Each attendee will receive a copy of Amy & Monte’s The Animal Powers Meditation Kit.
The Secret Power of Affirmations:
Most of us are in the habit of using negative affirmations like "I can’t do that,” “S/he doesn’t like me,” “I am a failure,” “I am unattractive", "I am too fat (or skinny)", "I don't have enough money, time, resources, patience, schooling, creativity, etc., to make things go my way." You get the picture — literally. Your unconscious mind gets the picture and uses its considerable power to insure that your will is carried out. It’s a bit like hypnosis; only it’s us hypnotizing ourselves! Many of the difficulties in our lives come from our negative beliefs about others and ourselves.
We can. Even the ultimate negative affirmation, “I cannot change myself and my life, that is just the way I am and that is just the way things are,” can be replaced by using affirmations that you design for yourself, that you find in books and other media, or by using affirmations like the ones we use everyday in our own lives that we have included in our specially designed affirmation systems, Little Reminders: Love & Relationships, Little Reminders: The Law of Attraction ( both Enchanted World) Gifts of The Goddess Affirmation Cards, The Breathe Easy Deck, or The Healing Deck (all from Chronicle Books).
Try believing what you are saying for the few minutes you are using them, several times a day. It can’t hurt. After a while, these affirmations will become the new way your body, mind, and spirit respond to the challenges of every day life.
Whether you have been looking for your soul mate, respect, contentment, romance, fun, financial security, a job you love, self-esteem, and the best life possible for you, affirmations and visualizations can be an important part of your campaign to achieve your goals. If done regularly and with sincerity, you may soon be surprised at the changes you see starting to occur in your life.
7 Easy Energy Exercises: tune up your “Chakras”
“Chakra” is the word for “wheel” or “disk” in the strange but beautiful Sanskrit language of India, one of the most ancient languages known. The concept of our personal “Chakras” comes from yoga and refers to a visualization of seven energy “doorways” along our spine connecting us to the universal life force. Amy and Monte’s quick Chakra workout is designed to recharge and refresh us, and to reduce stress.
Each of your Chakras is visualized as a very specific color. Your Chakras are said to ascend up your spine in the following order, mirroring the progression of the seven vibrations/colors of the rainbow:
1) The fiery red of our first Chakra, located at the base of our spine near the coccyx, is where the powerful, primal life energy of our “kundalini,” another Sanskrit word for our animal instincts for self-preservation, lies like a coiled serpent waiting to be awakened by our divinely inspired higher will so it can climb up our spine and complete the energizing and balancing of our Chakras.
2) Next, the orange-colored second Chakra is located opposite our reproductive organs and is associated with our sexuality and creativity.
3) The golden yellow-colored third Chakra is opposite our navel and is connected to our self-assertion as we shape and expand our being in the world.
4) The green fourth Chakra is opposite the heart and connected to our ability to love and our ability to feel the love of others toward us.
5) The blue fifth Chakra is opposite the throat and is associated with communication, knowledge and self-expression.
6) The indigo sixth Chakra is located in the brow at the point where many spiritual people say our "third eye" is located and serves to directly connect us to all other beings through compassionate, holistic thought and psychic communication.
7) Finally, our violet seventh “crown” Chakra is located at the top of our brain. Besides serving as our connection to the energy of the universe, it is connected with our devotion and identification with causes and forces beyond our individual selves.
A person desiring to attain optimum health and a higher state of awareness focuses their attention on a single word or sound or on their breathing until an alpha brain-wave producing state of relaxed awareness is achieved. The energy of the universe is then visualized as flowing the various colors into the seventh or Crown Chakra, located in the brain. Then this energy is visualized as flowing down freely to each of the other Chakra positions and their colors in turn. When all of the Chakras are open and flowing freely, the body is healthy and the mind and spirit are in harmony with the universal plan.
ARE YOU PSYCHIC? Games and Exercises to Develop Your E.S.P.
Everyone is born a little bit psychic. You may not use it all the time, but there is something inside all of us that all-too-occasionally amazes us with “lucky guesses” and flashes of insight. A recent University of Chicago national poll revealed that 67% of Americans “now profess a belief in the supernatural” and that 42% “believe they have been in contact with someone who died.” A Gallup Poll confirms: 49% believe in ESP, 25% feel like the have experienced telepathy and 14% have consulted a psychic.
Best-selling author Monte Farber and his award-winning artist wife Amy Zerner are psychics; in fact this talented couple call themselves “multi-mediums.” Monte wasn’t born with the ability to hear the dead “speak” and know the future, he developed the intuitive gift we are all born with through decades spent researching psychics and psychic phenomena. They can demonstrate their psychic abilities by doing quick, fun, and intriguing psychic readings for audience members or do in-depth psychic medium readings that can also be pre-taped. They can answer the following questions and more:
1) Are we all born psychic?
2) Do you have dreams that give you messages about the future?
3) Where does psychic information come from?
4) Is your destiny fated or can you change it?
5) Are spirits watching and guiding us all the time?
6) How can we trust if a feeling is “psychic” or not?
7) How can we develop our innate psychic gift?
Some people are only intuitive about crisis situations. Some people just get names out of the blue for people. Like chefs, different psychics have their specialties. Monte and Amy know a psychic who is good at business but not good at love. Some people who are born psychic see it as a curse and not a blessing.
Monte and Amy have definite opinions on these matters, opinions that are supported by experiences they’ve had that they can share as stories. Monte has read for the police to help solve cold murder cases, for private investigators on international assignments, as well as for many celebrities and corporations.
Day in and day out, our psychic imagination is speaking to us in the only language it understands, symbols and feelings, and what we have to do is learn how to listen. It wants to help us know the next step to take! Our gut feeling is our intuition and it is speaking to us all the time. There are many reasons we don’t listen to it and the biggest one is fear, not only fear of being wrong and embarrassed but also fear of being right and having our life change in ways we can’t always control or predict. Let Monte Farber and Amy Zerner prove that we all can predict the future and especially our own future.
HOW TO MEET YOUR SOULMATE: Accept No Substitutes
Many people are saddened by their apparent failure to bring true love into their lives. If you put your efforts into becoming yourself fully and do your best to realize your potential and find out who you are and what you are capable of, you will become the kind of person your Soul Mate will want to meet and stay with.
If you would like to find your Soul Mate, or if you would like to improve an existing romantic relationship, there are several important things that you can do to improve your chances. However, there are just as many important things that you had better not do or all of your good work will be undone. Rather than start with the “Do’s,” let’s start with the following tongue-in-cheek list of “Don’ts.”
8 Tips on How NOT To Find Your Soulmate!
1) Do not let anyone know how much or how little you are interested in them, either romantically or otherwise. If they somehow figure it out, deny it. This could make you appear caring and yet vulnerable.
2) Do not let the topic of conversation stray away from you. Make it clear that all you think about is yourself by not paying any attention to other peoples’ words, deeds, or body language.
3) Do not fail to judge potential partners by your own list of must-have traits: looks, money, job, family, status, religion, size, shape, hair, color, etc. (You know, the list that has gotten you into your present situation dozens of times!)
4) Do not avoid talking about who you think is “hot” and your previous marriages and romances, if any. Do not make eye contact with your date but look at any other attractive or important people who are anywhere near you.
5) Do not apologize if you are late or for anything else, even if your actions have obviously hurt the person you supposedly love. Make sure you never, ever forgive them or let them forget any of their mistakes.
6) Do not tell the truth to your potential soul mate. Do not care if they see you are a pathetic liar, a scheming phony, or have no idea what is real, who you are, or how you feel about anything.
7) Do not forget to mention how the two of you should get married and have children when you are on one of your first (and soon to be one of your last) dates. If you have children already, the choice is yours: either do not mention them at all or talk about nothing else.
8) Do not forget that getting drunk or otherwise stoned will make all the other seven “Do not’s” easier, and as a bonus, will show your potential soul mate you are seriously troubled and trying to escape from reality!
