After the first Seminar, I was so encouraged that I immediately started working on the next event for this coming September 8th & 9th. The one thing that came to mind was sharing the stage with some really excellent guest speakers. I am delighted to announce that all of my guest speakers have agreed to participate and bring their expertise to The Mastering Magic Seminar.
So, who are my guest speakers you may be asking?
Before I answer that probing question, let me just say that the next Seminar will be much more than just learning new magic. I wanted to create a platform for the delegates to have an experience where they could interact with experts from different disciplines.
One of my guest speakers comes form the world of ‘Acting and Improvisation Drama’. She will be bringing her expertise to the Seminar to showcase how the craft of acting can support magicians in their self-expression and delivery.
Self-expression and delivering a world-class performance requires any artist to be able to generate himself or herself into a "PEAK STATE" to deliver their performance. One of my speakers comes from the world of ‘Personal Development’ and is an expert in coaching his clients to access their authentic peak state. He will be bringing his expertise and facilitation skills to the Seminar. What all the delegates will get from his conversation can be transformational – I know this for sure because my guest speaker was my personal coach for seven months.
Finally, on the Sunday, 9th September, my guest of honor will take the stage and present a very special performance, conduct his hands on training workshop and then be open for conversation and question and answers. That is close to five and half hours of world-class magic with one of the greatest sleight of hand magicians in the world. It is a privilege to have him with us and I am very excited about how this whole experience will pan out for all concerned.

Recently, I have been intrigued by the notion of what does it take to present magic in such a way that my audience will connect powerfully with the experience? This is such a big question because I discovered for myself that the experience of magic is a profound emotional state to be in.
Just take a moment to think back on all of the great magicians you have seen. Try and remember how the experience left you. Think of a great film - how did you feel after the film was over? What about a great song or beautiful work of art? All of these experiences can be meaningful and memorable. The craft of magic is no different. What is the difference that makes the difference between a memorable experience and one which leaves you feeling indifferent?
These are questions which I will attempt to answer in the next Seminar of Mastering Magic - 'Communicating with Magic'. For now, start to engage in these questions, study videos of great magicians with these questions in mind. If you decided to participate in the next seminar, (which I hope you will) please bring your evaluation to the conversation. Your point of view will add value to what I am sure will be a fantastic conversation which we can all learn from.
Until the next blog, keep well.
I am delighted to announce that the dates for the next Mastering Magic Seminar have been set. They are, 8th & 9th September. This two day event promise to be an exciting program full of conversation, sharing, performance, great magic and most importantly, transformation for all the delegates who register.
I have a number of exciting guest speakers lined up who will bring extra added value to you and your personal transformation as magicians.
You may be wondering what will make this Seminar different from the first event?
To answer this question honestly, what I am present to is the values I hold dear, which have made a difference to the quality of my magic and my personal growth in the craft. Values like, quality, pride, a quest for excellence and mastery, having beautiful magic at my fingertips. Having quality conversations with like minded individuals. Surrounding myself with great teachers.
If you subscribe to this philosophy, then I promise you that I will be doing my utmost to make this next event an unforgettable experience.
I look forward to supporting you on your journey and transformation.
