fun for the public with the Lincoln Masons
The Lincoln Masons are
looking forward to an excited room full of happy thoughts at Masonic Lodge
210 the afternoon of April 14, when they host a 1 p.m. lunch event for the
public, featuring psychic entertainer Stefan Alexxis with a family-friendly
"Comedy & Cool Stuff Mindreading Show."According to a media release, "under Alexxis' guidance, the audience
becomes the star of the show, as average people discoverer they can
apparently make amazing, and often hilarious, intuitive connections
with him and with each other."
The performance description
"Starting with lighthearted, yet amazing experiments in
communications between two minds, the impossibilities grow as
Alexxis and his audience see if they can push past the limits of
time itself and even mentally influence the physical world.
"Is this ESP? Is it psychology? All Alexxis will say is what his
previous audiences already know: It's a whole lot of pure fun, with
plenty of laughs along the way."
The performance benefits Masonic Lodge 210.
Stefan Alexxis' varied background seems tailor-made to create a
psychic entertainer, or mentalist: high school science fair
experiments in ESP-related topics; a degree in religious studies,
specializing in world religions and ethics; years as a top-rated
radio personality in Idaho and Georgia; work as an award-winning
writer for organizations ranging from regional nonprofits to Fortune
500 companies -- all these come together in mentalism.
Alexxis makes no claim to be any more "psychic" than the next
person, nor is he trying to prove anything paranormal, the media
"I believe in the ability of the human mind to communicate in
subtle and wonderful ways," Alexxis says. "My job as an entertainer
is to make sure my audiences have fun with these natural, intuitive
abilities. And maybe some people will walk away with more than the
memory of (a) laughter-filled night. Maybe they'll have more
confidence in what they can accomplish when they put their minds to
