“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”
Roald Dahl

Magic, many people can view magic as a simple trick to elevate kids entertainment at a birthday party, but the real power of magic is the wonder, and the more deeper we look we see that life itself is one incredible trick, it starts and ends with you being engaged all the way through the journey and ends with the amazement of being so duped into thinking something else.

Magic itself will never lose its wonder because it plays on the simple traits of the mind, and these are of two things, the mind itself can be one of amazing vast brilliance of intelligence, but can also be very easily manipulated by the simple foundations and limitations which we currently have.

I love magic, I love the power of the mind, so what better way to talk about both is to discuss is both is magician and psychologist Tom Verner, we are so lucky, with what we have, we tend to forget what we forget and one of those things we happen to of lost is the power of awe and amazement, thanks Tom for bringing that back.

Tom Verner is the Founder of Magicians Without Borders, psychology professor of thirty-five years and avid lover of magic. Tom left teaching to carry out this dream of Magicians Without Borders. Since 2002, Magicians Without Borders has traveled to over thirty countries using magic to entertain, educate and empower. By UN estimates we have entertained over 500,000 of the most forgotten people in the world –mostly refugees and orphans living in desperate, difficult and often war torn parts of the world. Detailed accounts of this work can be found on our Our Travels page. We are also educating children in Santa Ana, El Salvador, Mumbai, India and Bogata, Colombia to become magicians. As they study magic, they develop self-confidence, self-esteem, discipline, focus and a sense of personal power. We have also established a Scholarship fund to empower these children to finish High School and go on to college, nursing school, and culinary school.
