Aaron Alexander has a unique approach to creating mind-bending experiences that look and feel like real magic both to those experiencing them and those performing them. Since sharing some of these ideas through his books Reality as an Art and Bridge, his work has been featured in some of the top acts in the world by mentalists, magicians, hypnotists, as well as other artists and performers. Many among them credit Aaron with reigniting their sense of magic and wonder.
Aaron's approach weaves together elements of art, science, history, philosophy, and psychology. His talks and performances around the world range from academic lectures to doctors and scientists, to keynote speaking, to theater and corporate stage shows. He has assisted in creating novel psychiatric approaches to psychosomatic illness, trauma, and difficult to treat patients in clinical settings. He also draws on a diverse background in change work, including youth work, addictions, and directing a world-renowned restorative justice organization, as well as running a range of high-end personal and professional development courses.
Aaron is currently completing a master's degree in counseling psychology with a focus on how to design prevention-based programs in mental health, developing strengths and capacities instead of intervening at the point of crises.
“[Aaron] is someone who is able to demonstrate every method he teaches and every claim he makes, in any situation. Indeed, since learning and rehearsing his methods, I've been successfully pulling, pushing and connecting with people in ways previously I never thought possible.”

Yet he will do things to people who he just meets that affects them in a positively unusual manner. His performances are filled with impossible happenings. His name is Aaron Alexander.”
