I’m not going to bury the lead - on July 16th, six of the best minds in magic and mentalism are scheduled to be lecturing alongside me to help raise money for my mother's medical bills. Christian Grace, Timon Krause, Paul Brook, Rainer Wees, Marc Weide, and Jonathan Levit have come together to help me. Information on how to participate after this short story:
For those that don’t know, outside of having a day job, working as a consultant and the content producer here at One Ahead - I am also the primary caregiver for my mother. It’s not easy, but it is what family is for. The past 9 months have been some of the hardest in my life. I was making it - but barely. To be honest, I probably wasn’t making it. I just tell myself that so I feel a tad better about everything in my life.
After an emergency surgery last month, I was stressed. I was missing work, couldn’t focus on writing, and was draining my bank account. This is where Timon Krause enters the picture. Besides being one of the greatest mind readers in the world - he is also one of the best friends you could ever ask for. Timon pitched the idea of a joint lecture where he would just lend his name, and all the proceeds would go to me. I’m not really in a position to say no and after a conversation on what I could lecture about - Timon got to work.
Philo Knotik, an amazing performer and a lovely human, volunteered to organize the event. But after a few weeks, he reached out with the news. It wasn’t just going to be me and Timon. Once word got around, Rainer Wees, Jonathan Levit, Paul Brook, Marc Weide, and Christian Grace all agreed they wanted to do the event too.
So we reached the date of July 16th at 10 am CST ( or 4 pm BST, 5 pm CEST) But don’t worry if you can’t make it - recordings of the event will be made available for a few days after the event. Each lecture will be about an hour in length. Also, you’ll receive a digital copy of my lecture notes! Also, as a bonus, Rory offered that all attendees will receive one month of full access over at one ahead! In light of that news - I’ll be making an annotated bibliography of some of my favourite posts from the archive!
If you want to join the event, you can send just $50 USD (as friends and family) to me at Nathan.firstname.lastname@example.org on PayPal. Please include your email in the PayPal payment note.
I will track who has signed up and will pass the names to the event organizers, and an email will be sent out later next week with all the official details.
I want to say thank you. This has been one of the hardest times of my life - so to know that people in this community have my back and want to help has meant the world. A special thank you to Philo, Timon, Christian, Jonathan, Paul, Rainer, Marc, and all the people behind the scenes making this happen!
See y’all then
