Ken Muller

I have been involved with the mystic arts since 1955. Back then mental-based performing was not separated from conjuring so I just learned to do what was best for the audience of the moment. I had many mentors early, the most notable being Arnold Furst. I learned many performing principles and theory, plus Helstomism, contact mind reading, hypnotism and reasons to make a career of preforming for entertainment. Instead, I used the principles in combination with my formal education in speech to make presentations to business owners as part of interviews and consulting services. I developed my new techniques including the ones that led to Once Removed. Another favorite is advanced pendulum work including multi-bob, no-touch and Radial Pendulums. As I am getting too old and crippled to perform very much I am writing eBooks to share my innovation with others.
