The neuroscience behind magic

Mirror mirror on the wall

A brief history of mirrors, neuroscience and how this workshop will help you:

Human beings are one of the few species that recognise themselves in mirrors. When we look in a mirror, we see who we are – the mirror is a tool for self-knowledge. But also, and more commonly, it’s also a tool for self-deception. Our ability to recognise ourselves in mirrors is connected with logical thinking and introspection. And for many, introspection is a difficult exercise, one to be avoided!

To keep our left brain intact, we tend to deny and even confabulate what we see in the mirror because we want to remain happy in our beliefs. We don’t want to accept inconsistencies that threaten them. It requires strength and effort to change or modify beliefs. As Joan Didion says: We tell stories to ourselves in order to live. However, it is in the acceptance process that doors to new perceptions about what and who we are can open. Acceptance is critical. We need to know and accept ourselves, accept our strengths and weaknesses. Only then can we start changing and improving.

In this sense, as well as the other symbols and meanings mirrors have had throughout history (think Harry Potter’s Mirror of Erised and Snow White’s truth-telling mirror) we can add a new one: the mirror as a diagnostic tool.

Your company’s most valuable asset is its people. It’s easy to forget that and for your workforce to feel disconnected – from the company as well as from one another. We believe all teams have their own kind of magic, but sometimes it gets lost. Find your magic in our Magic Mirror!

How the magic happens

Our workshop blends skilled facilitation with wow inducing magic. We use these two elements to explore, teach and entertain. This methodology allows us to tap into truths, increase self awareness and look at the group dynamics.

Courage

Create a workplace where your employees can be courageous. Allow them to be themselves, reveal their personalities and unlock their potential.

What’s your superpower?

Collaboration

Nice idea in theory, but one that often slips away under the pressure of constant deadlines. We uncover blocks and question assumptions to open up more productive ways of working together.

Connection

Your employees should be able to articulate your company’s mission, vision and values. Clarity on company purpose is linked to motivation at work. How connected is your company?…

All these companies are bringing magic to their workforce

You're pushed out of your comfort zone, but that’s a really good thing. The team has fun together and share their experiences, which makes it a great session.
