What we're about

If you are interested in being your best possible self, and getting the very best out of life. If you want to learn Mentalism and associated knowledge and skills. If you just want to experience everything 100% and get the most out of life - this is the group for you.

No previous experience is necessary. All you need is curiosity, an open mind and a desire to learn. Our focus is on practising techniques such as mind reading and hypnosis with many partners so you get competent very quickly.

The meet-up group is lead by Atticus Zane, the Hypnotist and Occultic Inker focused on Lucid Dreaming and Play Therapy with a special interest in Mentalism.

We cover a range of mentalist and hypnotic phenomena and topics drawing from Classical Hypnosis, Ericksonian Hypnosis, and Psycho-Semantic Reprogramming (PSR). Past practice sessions have included topics such as: - Zodiac Reading - Numerology - Predictions and Mind Control- Spiritualism and Exorcism - Psychic Detective Consultancy - Elman Induction - Direct Suggestion - Indirect Suggestion - Swish Pattern - Timeline Therapy - Rapid Inductions - Instant Inductions - Stage Hypnosis - Persuasive Language - Non-Verbal Queues - Convincers - Time Dilation - Erotic Hypnosis - Hyper Emperia - Super Depth - Hypnotic Pain Management - Fast Phobia Cure - Hypnotic Regression - EFT - Meta Patterns - Suggestibility Testing - Post Hypnotic Suggestion - Meta Model - How to Hypnotize Your Lover - Dual Induction - Non-Verbal Induction - Tests for Somnambulism - Metaphor - Glove Anesthesia - Hypnotic Models of the Mind.

The two main approaches we have identified that will best facilitate this direction are-

Firstly, emphasising and exploring the role of Dual Realities and Play Therapy. This includes the use of less well known psychological phenomena such as Lucid Dreaming https://www.theguardian.com/science/2014/apr/27/mysteries-lucid-dreaming-brain-consciousness-research and Transliminality https://www.oxfordreference.com/view/10.1093/oi/authority.20110803105430885

To this end we have opened up an optional crossover with another group, Interactive Fiction. Generally this will provide an opportunity for practising our skills through Gamification https://www.learning-theories.com/gamification-in-education.html .

If you have an interest in alternate reality games https://www.reuters.com/article/us-column-pluggedin-alternatereality-idUSN2945731720080530 (compare to Mentalism illusions and Dual Realities) or Lucid Dreaming generally then feel free to check out the group: https://www.meetup.com/interactivenarratives/

Secondly, exploring the relationship between Mind Control/ Hypnosis and Mind Reading through alternative forms and applications such as principles of Psychic Detective Consultancy and Spiritualism. This has special relevance to the role of convincers in Hypnotherapy and to Stage and Street Hypnosis/ Mentalism Performance Art.

We look forward to meeting you and exploring these aspects of Psychology with you soon!
