The Art of Manipulating Minds
Mentalists use subliminal messages and other techniques to enable them to read or manipulate other people’s minds. To Henda Setiana, the practice of a mentalist is both a science and an art.
A member of Mensa Indonesia, Hendra is a self-taught mentalist and magician who discovered his natural talent for performing mind-boggling tricks in high school.
Hendra has honed and improved on his mental manipulation skills ever since, and he now has accumulated over 10 years of experience.
Also an accomplished hypnotist and an expert chess player, Hendra has recently started an online business.
EL NIÑO “MINDHACKER” ARMECIN
Wizarding 101: Key Concepts and Tips to Becoming a Sorcerer Supreme
Mensa Philippines’ Niño Armecin will walk us through the basic moves, their applications, and will give us tips on how we can do it too!
Niño has been doing magic since before the internet. As a young boy, he remembers standing for hours inside the bookstore while reading magic books that he can’t afford to buy.
He is a member of the Queen City Magic Society, the premier magic group in Cebu City.
Niño performs magic professionally and for charity.
ILLUSIONIST BRIAN GU
Illusions that Inspire and Blows Minds
A member of Mensa Philippines, Brian Gu believes that illusion is not only effective in capturing people’s attention, but also in inspiring and conveying meaningful messages.
Brian’s desire for mastering illusions started out as a simple hobby when he was in high school.
Brian further nurtured this passion for the craft when he became a math teacher. Unsurprisingly, he turned out to be hugely popular with his students for combining his lessons with seemingly impossible mind-blowing tricks to ignite their love for learning and make them want more.
Brian often also takes his illusion performances to the stage in front of audiences during school activities, social gatherings, and other occasions.
