“I feel that anything in this world that can reduce the pain of one who is suffering can be considered medicine,

and magic is good medicine.  —Jeff McBride

From ancient times, there has been a mysterious connection between the shaman and the showman. There is a good deal of evidence that at one time the tribal elder was also the storyteller, historian, healer, and magician.



This deep connection between doctors, therapists, healers, and magicians is not merely a historical fact. There are compelling reasons to think of these pursuits as closely related. For indeed, when a magician weaves a spell of wonder and leaves us in the state of astonishment… there can be a temporary healing of mind, body, and spirit. 

Join us on Saturday and Sunday, February 20 & 21, 2020, as we explore these fascinating connections between the shaman and the showman.

In March 2020, Jeff McBride, Larry Hass, Ph.D., and Ricardo Rosenkranz, M.D. offered its first Shaman & Showman Conference, but it was timed for Europeans. The Seminar quickly filled and it was a smash success.  This year's Conference will again be held online and will feature much new content--some of which will be provided by previous participants.  If you are a healer or health practitioner, or a magician interested in these themes, you will be enriched by your participation in the Shaman & Showman Conference. For over thirty years, McBride’s Magic & Mystery School has been offering educational experiences that explore the rich connection between magic and medicine.
