Presentation 1: “Mind Games: Hypnosis & Subconscious Success”

By Brandon Dean, Certified Consulting Hypnotist & Hypnotherapist, Certified Smoking Cessation Specialist, Subconscious Success Coach, Certified Professional Stage Hypnotist

Influenced by TV and hollywood movies and stage show antics, most of what people believe about hypnosis is factually, if not wildly, incorrect. Each of us passes through states of hypnosis daily. We all experience or use hypnosis in our daily lives — without ever realizing it. It’s a myth that you have to believe in hypnosis to be hypnotized; hypnosis is science, it has nothing to do with beliefs. During this fast-paced hypnotic demonstration audience members will learn about hypnosis and have a direct experience with their own subconscious mind without leaving their chairs. You’ll also discover how your own subconscious self-image affects everything you do and is responsible for your success in life, career and whether you achieve your goals. Brandon Dean is a Las Vegas-trained Certified Professional Stage Hypnotist, a Certified Consulting Hypnotist, and a Certified Professional Coach specializing in Subconscious Success. Brandon is the founder of Red Chair Hypnosis, a hypnotherapy practice in Yorkville, and performs stage shows regularly in the GTA.

Presentation 2: The Dark Cosmos

By Michael Reid, Associate Professor, Teaching Stream, Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics & Public Outreach Coordinator, Dunlap Institute for Astronomy and Astrophysics

More than 95% of the universe is missing–hidden away as dark matter and dark energy. Together, these two substances determine the future of the cosmos, yet we know next to nothing about what they actually are. What’s the evidence that they exist and why is it taking so long to figure out what they are? Get ready to hear some of the latest facts and tantalizing theories with Associate Professor Michael Reid.
