I just read about the Bob Cassidy workshop:
http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewt......rum=31&5

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.
so....

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.

Hey Jeremy,

That sounds great! that makes an excellent workshop a great bargain as well!

For me it much more doable, I'll just have to work out a few things before I can commit 100%.

I'll keep you posted,

Paul
remember....always use your powers for good!

I was the first to register for this at $1000.00 and I thought it was a steal then! Now it's only $500, I'm twice as happy! I hope to see you there Dave and Paul.

Update:

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.

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.
