Free tea/coffee and snacks to all those who show up with one of this year's top 10 banned books to sit and read with us.

The Power of the Word: Communication for Magicians (Matt Risk)We have all heard of Magical Words that have the power to create changes in reality. Much lesser known is the power of everyday language to shape our expectation, to limit our experience, or to enhance our lives. In this workshop we will learn the power of language, how our phrasing, and even our choice of words shapes our perception. We will learn how we attach powerful emotions to words, and how to create new words of power. We will learn how we use words to either create confusion, or opportunity in our communication, and how to use language to enhance our experience, share our desires with others, or to profoundly change the way in which we act on our worlds.
