"Don't miss ASTONISHING magician Jamy Ian Swiss!" — Vanity Fair
"STUNNING!" — New York Press "DAZZLING!" — TimeOut NY
"Professional magician Jamy Ian Swiss, who describes himself as 'an honest liar,'
is one CONFIRMED SKEPTIC with a finely tuned sense of the absurd."
— The Washington Post
"You're freaking me out." — Matt Lauer, The TODAY Show

1:00-5:30 PM - Science, Magic, and Skepticism: A Natural Relationship

Workshop/Lectures & Demonstrations

Using discussion and demonstration, we'll explore the connection between magic and skepticism. Joining Jamy will be D.J. Grothe, magician, skeptic, and host of Point of Inquiry, CFI's radio show and podcast, and D.C.'s own Chip Denman, a founder of the National Capital Area Skeptics.

* D.J. Grothe, The History of Magic in Skepticism
* Jamy Ian Swiss, The Illusion of Psychic Powers
* Q&A on Magic, Skepticism, Science, and Reason - with Swiss, Grothe, and Denman.

7:30 PM - HEAVY MENTAL Show

Witness an amazing performance of baffling, unnerving, "mind reading" phenomena - accomplished with pure psycology, subtle influence, deft illusion, uncanny intuition, and a healthy dose of downright deception - what Jamy calls "sleight of mind."

If there was such a thing as psychic power, it would have to look like this! Come and see for yourself how five ordinary senses can convince you that somehow, some way - there must be a sixth.

Limited Seating - Register Today!

Workshop: $35 ($30 for CFI and NCAS members and $15 for students)
HEAVY MENTAL Show: $20 ($15 for CFI and NCAS members and $10 for students)
Workshop & Heavy Mental Show Package: $50 ($40 for CFI and NCAS members and $20 for students)

SPECIAL NOTE: The HEAVY MENTAL show is not recommended for children under 12 and no one under 8 will be admitted.

These events are sponsored by the Center for Inquiry DC and the National Capital Area Skeptics. For more information, please call (202)546-2332 or email mhensley@centerforinquiry.net.
