The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.
— Alan Watts
From the Associate Dean, Dr. Larry Hass:
In recent weeks and months the Magic & Mystery School has made several important announcements that relate to our offerings and programs. It has been a busy 2012! In this Museletter, we wanted to pull these together for your information and enjoyment:
1. BRAND NEW: CME CREDIT FOR MAGIC AND MEDICINE
We have just received word that our Magic and Medicine Class (November 8-12, 2012) has been approved to carry CME credit for health-care professionals through Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine. Visit the website for more information and to sign up for this exceptional experience.
2. SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATIONS NOW ACCEPTED
Last week the second platform of our new Scholarship Program was put in place: we are now accepting applications from students for scholarships to our educational experiences in Las Vegas. For complete information about our scholarships program, to download an application, and to make a gift to the Scholarship Fund to support the magic education for someone who might not otherwise be able to afford it, please go to: http://www.magicalwisdom.com/scholarships.
3. MAGIC AND MEANING CONFERENCE, CALL FOR PRESENTATIONS AND PERFORMANCES
We are now accepting proposals for 20-minute presentations for the Magic and Meaning Conference (October 17-20, 2012) and proposals to perform a piece in one of the shows at the Conference. For instructions about how to make and submit your proposals, please go to: http://www.magicalwisdom.com/infopages/view/CFP2012.
4. SIGN UP FOR A LOCKED ROOM
Since launching the Locked Room online learning experiences in January 2012, we have been selling them out regularly. These Lectures and Training Sessions offer an extraordinary opportunity to have a magic educational experience with one or more of our faculty in the privacy of your own home. So far, we have had classes on Levitation for Parlor and Stage (Jeff), Card Magic for Parlor and Stage (Jeff), Marketing for Entertainers (Tobias & Bryce), Building a Successful Show (Larry), and Trade Show Magic (George). Our current plan is to offer at least two of these a month. I invite you to see what we have scheduled for next month and sign up to discover why our past attendees have been raving about their experiences: http://virtual.magicalwisdom.com/locked_rooms.
5. SIGN UP FOR A LIVE CLASS IN LAS VEGAS
As exciting as are the School’s online education programs, there is absolutely no substitute for having a live, immersive educational experience in Las Vegas with Jeff, Eugene, and the rest of the faculty. Come spend some live time with us and reconnect with the heart of magic. For the list of classes this fall, please go to: http://www.magicalwisdom.com/events.
Because of you and your involvement, the Magic & Mystery School is on the move! Thank you for being part of our magical learning community.
As I write, Jeff has just returned from Italy at the Masters of Magic Convention in beautiful Saint Vincent, in Italy. Later this month, he will be at the IMX in Las Vegas (with a special Super Session at the House of Mystery immediately following! Click here to register!)
After that, he will be leaving on a whirlwind tour of the East Coast, presenting his McBride Magic Experience in Maine, Tennessee, N. Carolina and Ohio. Some of these dates don’t have full details worked out yet, to please check in on his calendar in a few days to get further information on the events nearest you. We’ll post direct links from the calendar as soon as we have them.
Wishing you a magical two weeks until we come to you again!
