Weekend of Wisdom: The Philosophers of Magic - Live in Las Vegas
Join us for a weekend of wisdom! Spend quality time in small groups with some of the greatest magic teachers in the world. Explore the deep wisdom of the philosophers of magic.
The original vision of Mystery School was to create a safe place for serious play and a deep study of magic. For the first few years, 30 people met for three days in a secret location. Over the years, that grew and grew to over 100 students attending.
Here is your chance to experience the roots of the tree of wisdom: old-school, small-group style!
Lively discussions, thought-provoking lectures, and inspirational performances. Small group conversations, Library and Museum explorations, and mysterious surprises!
On Friday night, informal dining experiences near the School will provide a place for us to connect and continue our conversations, and, if people choose, to share their magic!
Saturday night, as a group, we will attend a surprise performance at a Las Vegas show venue, TBA.
Sunday night, our weekend will conclude with the magic pizza party!
Participants are also free to make their own plans during the evenings—however, our evening programming will be provided until 7:00 p.m.
This Year’s Theme: Essential Wisdom
The teachers and facilitators look forward to welcoming you to the House of Mystery so you can enjoy this experience and deepen our friendships as we dive into the art and history of magic.
The theme for this inaugural year of 2021 will be Essential Wisdom. Our focus will be on the work and wisdom of Sam Sharpe, Tommy Wonder, and Eugene Burger (among others).
In addition to our wonderful programming (shows, talks, and new magic), you will also create or renew deep friendships, all of which will reinvigorate and inspire your magic. You will also receive:
* A Mystery School Grimoire, filled with your favorite secrets.
The Grimoire is a collection of essays and thoughts, and a place for your personal reflections on the weekend. This is a book you will return to again and again, to reflect on the teachings that will be shared with you over the weekend.
* Mystery School Water Vessel
In our effort to create a safe and healthy space you will be provided with a collectible water bottle that you may keep as part of your experience here at the Magic & Mystery School. This is a high-quality water bottle that you will use for many years to come.
* The Mystery School Membership Emblem, given only to those who attend the School.
* Certificate of Participation, specially created for the Weekend of Wisdom, suitable for framing.
You will also gain access to Mystery School's secret online groups. This is a private online space, where our students gather to share thoughts, secrets, resources, and magic.
Every student will have access to the incredible Mystery School “Library of Secrets” and will get to explore the “Museum of Curiosities.”
We are working to make this a deeply fulfilling and memorable experience. Space is limited to 30 people so register now.
In addition to his work as a performer, McBride is in demand as a teacher and lecturer for magicians and lay audiences.
