I just read about the Bob Cassidy workshop:

I've heard a rumour that the subject of the workshop will be "Jazz Mentalism."

Sign me up, Bob!

Man, this is going to be a good one. I wish that I had the time to take part. If you have the means to make it to this workshop, you are silly not to attend.

I think this discussion shows the difference between studying and training.

You can learn ABOUT NLP by studying books and watching a couple videos. If you want to use the concept of NLP for misdirection, those books will give you basic idea. If you wish to use an idea or two from NLP AS an effect, look at some of the stuff by Kenton. Be aware, however, that you'll always need an out.

If you want to learn NLP to achieve self-change or help others change, go to an in-person training where your trainer is certified through a recognized NLP organization.

Learning NLP from a book is like learning that fire is hot from a book. The reality is a different experience.

If the training is done properly, the trainer USES NLP in the training. If the theory is accurate, the result is that you get learnings you may not even be aware of until they are needed.

This may seem like crap to the pseudo-skeptics, but it is common for hypnotherapists to have clients tell them "I had a realization that changed me." They don't remember that this was exactly the suggestion the hypnotist made while they were in hypnosis and believe they came up with it by themselves. I forgot who said it (One of the "E"s, I think: Elman? Erkickson?), but it seems that results are more effective when the client thinks they came up with the realization.

Hey dmkraig

I think you might have pasted this post into the wrong thread...
except: from what I understand Bob's workshop will be hands-on and performance oriented.

Good news! We just found out that the venue is allowing us more room due to a change. Therefore, we can accommodate more students while still maintaining the high degree of individualized attention. Because of this change, we have dropped the tuition to $500. Refunds to students already registered have been taken care of.

Every mentalist who performs Q & A for audiences knows that nothing else comes as close to real mind reading. Nothing has more impact on an audience or is more memorable. This is why Q & A and billet work are the heart of mentalism.

For those who plan on attending the 2010 Jazz Mentalism Workshop in April, we are working on adding something special. However, we wanted to make sure that this bonus would not cut into our workshop time, so it will take place on Thursday (4/22) night (in addition to the meet and greet).

What is the bonus? We are also trying to arrange for Bob Cassidy to actually perform his live show before a real audience. (Of course, registrants will be able to attend free.) Cassidy will do his act and you will see the power of Q & A firsthand. You will get to see it in action in a way that has been unavailable anywhere else and hasn't been shared with the fraternity before.

In addition to the wealth of information provided during the workshops, this added bonus will function as a touchstone for discussions. Throughout the workshop Bob will be tipping the real work of Q & A.

When you attend this workshop, you are going to leave being able to perform one of the most powerful, awe-inspiring feats of mentalism. For close up, parlor or for stage, you will be able to put Q & A into your act with confidence.
Message: Posted by: jeremysweiss (Feb 17, 2010 04:06PM)
So we now have confirmed TWO special guests for the workshop. One will be delivering a fantastic presentation. Both are among The Mentalism Cognoscenti. It is an honor to have them on board. Those that are registered are going to be thrilled by this line up.

Quick question.

How much of the material covered in this workshop will be original and unpublished info? Is any of the workshop content to be found in any of Bob's previously published works?

Message: Posted by: dmoses (Feb 19, 2010 01:30AM)
Hey kambiz

from what I understand there is going to be a mix of things, old and new.
Jazz mentalism, for example. is something that bob talks about a lot in his work-- the big difference is going to be having hands-on exploration of the technique(s) while being guided by the master.

I also have it on good authority that he will be tipping work that has not been published anywhere as far as I know-- including "the plexiglas box" which is one of those "worth the price of admission" ideas for the perform who wants to have Q&A as part of their professional repertoire.

plus the special guests!... which knowing bob-- even if only a little-- I'm willing to bet will make this workshop something not-to-be-missed.

I'm going to stop now because I feel like I'm getting caught up in my own hype here... but needless to say, I can't wait.
Message: Posted by: jeremysweiss (Feb 19, 2010 01:32AM)
Well, certainly, there will be references to Bob's existing body of work (Hanussen, Scorpio and Jazz Mentalism). While we may draw from them, those works can be purchased through Lybrary. It would be best (but not imperative) to be familiar with some of them.

Also, some of what we will be discussing is the development of Q & A as it has existed and exists today, so that we may give the you a solid background. This will allow you to formulate your own next step in the evolution of Q & A. Of course, there will be many, many new ideas never taught or seen before--like the plexiglass box approach, which Bob and I came up with together (and I have used with great success).

The key here is that this workshop will be a very intense, "hands-on" workshop with a dynamic, interactive component. We are not discussing broad topics like close-up mentalism, hypnosis, stage mentalism, marketing, or philosophical discussions on ethics/disclaimers or what mentalism is or isn't. We are focused on Q & A and giving you the tools to do it right.

Of course, this includes (but is not limited to): switches, steals and other techniques employed to perform Q & A. It also includes not just getting information, but mastering how to deliver it back in a way that is both powerful and impactful to your audience.

It is our hope that while there will be scintillating, stimulating discussion, you will leave with a comfort level such that you can put Q & A right into your act. You will walk away with something concrete for your investment. Tangible skills.

Think about how much money is spent on gimmicks, devices, and other toys. This is an unbeatable deal. No device or DVD you purchase comes with 26 hours of unrestricted, semi-private instruction from a master. At this workshop you leave with an act. Not Bob's Q & A act, not Dunninger's, not Kreskin's. Your own Q & A act.

I'm sure the Bob Cassidy workshop will be top-notch. Bob is a friend and I would expect nothing less.

However, since every item you've listed in the above paragraph is straight out of the curriculum of my workshop coming up next week, I feel that I should clarify this mischaracterization. We are not tackling these topics in any kind of broad way at all. As Bob is doing, I will be approaching these topics in a similar, hands-on fashion with many effects taught and mastery of each the main goal.

My workshop is not for beginners, but rather for the advanced performer and student.

I just wanted to clarify our position and wish you good luck with your event. I'm sure it will be stellar.

Mr. Osterlind:

Your post is so important to me that I am sending this from my cellphone, so please forgive any spelling errors. Firstly, let me say that I consider you a great inspiration and if I could, I would be attending your workshop myself. I am certain it wil be of tremendous value to anyone and everyone who takes it.

In no way was I trying to disparage your endeavor. Merely, I was trying to emphasize that Bob's workshop is very, very focused. In fact, this will be viewed by some as a strength and by others as an Achille's heel.

I know I don't have to wish you luck because your workshop will be a great success. Again, I wish I could be there as well.

I hope you forgive this misunderstanding. I regard you with very high esteem.

Unfortunately, on Friday, my father suffered an unexpected cardiopulmonary arrest. I am in Florida right now. He is expected to pass away this weekend. For those that have inquired, the workshop will still take place as planned, though I will have a bit less focus on it. I am sure you all understand.

My father was the one who started me on the road to "magic" and the strange, unexplainable and unusual. He was always very supportive and was even at my last show (that debuted the plexiglass box). It is still going to be the best workshop EVER, because he would have wanted it to be that way. Thank you all so much for the outpouring of love, best wishes and support.

Many people have communicated to me that they are interested in the workshop but cannot attend. They have also inquired if the materials will be made available for purchase. It was our intention to release the materials after the workshop at a higher price.

However, one individual has registered but cannot attend. I promised that person that any materials (including the plexiglass box), workbooks and video will be made available to him (but he must still sign the non-disclosure agreement). In the interest of fairness, I will extend the same offer to you.

If you are interested in the workshop materials, plexiglass box, etc. You may register for the workshop and will receive all the materials (except the bonus presentations) that come out of the workshop. However, you will not get the main value--which is, of course, hands-on instruction by Bob Cassidy.

Again, after the workshop we intend to release workbooks, written material and video, but at a higher price.

Feel free to contact/pm me if interested.

That Stetson thinks this workshop is so valuable pleases me to no end. Let me all tell you that Jon was in the show that entirely changed my view on how performance should be done. It was a transformative experience.

Todd Robbins, my friend and mentor gave me tickets to Monday Night Magic. I sat next to Simon Lovell, Randi and Teller. Francis Menotti (sp?) came out and did his fantastic straitjacket. I watched Randi (who escaped an SJ over Niagra Falls) and Teller (who has 2 out of the 5 best SJ in history) watch FM get out of this jacket. And while I was sitting there I had to ask myself, "What do these two guys who must know all there is to know about SJ escapes possibly be getting out of watching this guy get out of this SJ?". As I sat there pondering the question, I realized that the answer was that they were not looking for any method....they were enjoying THE PERFORMANCE. It is all about PERFORMANCE.

Stetson came out and blew away the audience! He did the most engaging magic square I had ever seen. He did a tossed out deck that fried the audience. He did a word divination from a newspaper that was fantastic. It was his PERFORMANCE, not his methods, which made "magic" what it could be.

I hope that I could be 1/10th as entertaining as Jon. To know that I MIGHT, in some small way, be a part of something that Jon finds valuable gives me huge satisfaction. Jon, you have no idea what impact your great performance would have the night I saw it.

Let that be a lesson for all performers. You never know how you might inspire others--so you are always obligated to give it your best.

Anyways, I have already gotten several angry PMs about calling Michael Webber "HOMONYMIC" and I have to address them....HOMONYMIC folks. "...NYMIC"!!!

I can't comment on the specifics of the workshop for obvious reasons however I can tell you this-- watching Bob do jazz mentalism is a humbling experience.

Whew. I had very little sleep over the last few days / nights. Now I have about 16 hours of the video notes to edit. Post notes as well and a survey to make. There was a crushing amount of material.

Bob suggested that the next workshop mandate at least 5% of the attendees be smokers and another 5% must be drinkers. IF we do another one, I am not going to have it in a hotel. Instead I will rent a private room in a restaurant / bar and sessions will start at 5 PM and end at 2 am--like they should!

This workshop will be sensational.

I managed to spend a bit of time with him over the last weekend
and if you've got any doubts, let me tell you, Bob's at the top of his game.

Jeremy, nice to meet you too.
