Join our conjuror-in-residence,for a highly interactive, online event that uses magic to explore how we can live in challenging times by taking inspiration from the philosophy of the Buddha.

Brian isn’t an ordinary magician, and this isn’t your everyday magic performance. His day job is a Professor in Sociology at Exeter University. As part of that he has become interested in how entertainment magic can be used to promote dialogue. This all new format uses magic tricks to illustrate Buddhist ideas that can help meet today’s challenges.

So feel free to join in the fun if you have been to one of Brian’s previous sessions at the Centre or online.
