Ian Rowland's ''How To Be Psychic'' Workshop will explain and demonstrate the art of ''cold reading,'' which is how to talk to complete strangers so they think you're psychic. These are the same techniques used throughout the multi-million dollar psychic industry. Ian has given more demonstrations of cold reading under test conditions than anyone else in the world, and has even been hired to teach these and related techniques by the FBI. You'll learn how to make confident statements about literally any aspect of someone's life—even if you know nothing about them. The Workshop will also explain and demonstrate how some of these same communication techniques can be applied to other areas that have nothing to do with pretending to be psychic, such as business and sales.

• How the body language and nonverbals (dress, attire, setting) influence politicians and their audience.
• What people are truly saying and thinking with their body language even without speaking.
• Which areas of the body are more honest than the others and why—the feet are the most honest part of the body.
