Alain Nu to Lecture February 6

    Alain Nu’s lecture combines his own power to amaze and creates a riveting performance of clairvoyance, psychokinetic movement & thought control. Unlike the usual “magician,” Alain is truly different. His presentations are conducted in a fun, off-beat, highly interactive style which include weird communication, oracular thinking, synchronicity, self-fulfilling prophecies, & show casing the rarely seen act of effortlessly mutating keys, silverware, & other metal objects with the powers of his mind. Being a full-time working mentalist, speaker, & author, Alain will share some of his most cleverly guarded secrets & ideas.

Ring 50 meets at the Holiday Inn, 2460 Eisenhower Ave, Alexandria, VA. - 6:00 Counts of Conjuring (Youths), 6:00 Dinner, 7:30 Meeting/Lecture.
