Providing entertaining and informative alcohol and drug awareness  programs for students ... and
magic training workshops for presenters nationwide.

Magically Speaking

John Fabjance, professional speaker, educator and magician, is the developer of Mind Games & Magic, an entertaining and informative alcohol and drug awareness  program for students.

These unique alcohol & drug awareness presentations demonstrate "how we fool ourselves."

John travels nationally to perform these programs and to teach other presenters to incorporate Mind Games & Magic into their presentations.

Using Proven Teaching Techniques
Mind Games & Magic uses proven teaching techniques, which include: 

--Total audience participation

--A non-threatening approach which builds rapport with the  audience

--Hands-on participation with specially prepared "magic effects"
    which reinforce the learning process

"Sleight of hand.  Twitch of eye.  That's magic, and that's what John Fabjance of Mt. Prospect counts on when he performs.  But if you think all he's doing is tricks as he produces coins from nowhere or displays the card you were thinking about, you've fallen under the spell of 'Mind Games', as he calls his show.

You've also missed the point: Fabjance's magic act also delivers a message, usually about alcohol & drugs.  It's not a sermon but a quiet message, presented with a practiced subtlety that makes his presentation different from the typical anti-drug & alcohol lecture that people, students in particular, are accustomed to hearing."

-Chicago Tribune

"Thanks for your excellent program.  This was one of the most outstanding and enlightening alcohol awareness programs that we've had.  The students were having so much fun they almost forgot they were attending an alcohol awareness program.
Again, thanks for a valuable & entertaining day."

Laura S. Griffin

"I will be able to use the magic in my D.A.R.E. program to help with better rapport and relationships with the kids that I teach D.A.R.E. to. A lot of the tricks we learned today I will be able to use and I'm going to teach some of the other officers.  It was very enjoyable and entertaining.  A lot of knowledge was gained here today."

Patrolman Lonnie M. Netzel, D.A.R.E. Officer
Kankakee City Police Department

"I've been using the tricks I learned more to interact with the children than to perform.  While with a group of children before or after class, I show a few of them a trick.  They in turn tell others.  Soon everyone wants to see the magic.  With John's class, I was able to show the kids some cool tricks just by using things out of my pocket.  Also you don't need prior magic experience.  This is a good way to break the ice with children or adults alike."

Officer Ken Van Der Haegen,
D.A.R.E. officer
Morton Grove Police Department

"It's another attention grabber!  There are a lot of things I'm going to incorporate."
