Preston Heller will not tell you what a mentalist does. He will show you! And in so doing, every audience member will have a unique, personal experience with the "unseen", including thought implantation or 'influence', revealing information known only to the spectator, reading body language and voice patterns, psychometry and much more.

This program is family friendly but due to the nature of the subject matter it is recommended for ages 12 and up.

 Mr. Heller donates his speaker fee to a local food bank.  Attendees are encouraged to bring canned or dry goods for their local food pantry.,
