“Robert LAMAR is brilliantly creative. His mind can adjust to anything and it can adjust very quickly. I told him once that he shows a tremendous range of abilities.
I told him that he should consider using his creative abilities for his own career in stage entertainment.”
~ Peter Reveen
LAMAR has devoted much of his life to the study and
understanding of the conjuring arts, hypnosis, memory training and parapsychology. Born in the province of Ontario, Canada, he developed an interest in these specialized fields at a very early age.
When he was just six Robert LAMAR started learning the art of magic through trick packages he ordered from magic catalogues. When he was only twelve he saw one of the world's truly great entertainers, the Australian mesmerizer, The Impossiblist, Peter Reveen. This event captivated the young LAMAR and he was further drawn by the power to perform and entertain. He eventually met Reveen and his lovely wife, Coral, and the friendship they established has endured for over three decades. Sadly, Peter died in 2013, but his memory lives on.
LAMAR has also spent the past few decades studying the allied arts, specifically mesmerism, hypnotism and magic as a performance art. His studies led him to the conclusion that the field he wished to enter was not one of formal hypnotism but that of a highly focused state of attention through which he could tap into a person's natural creativity. When one's fears and inhibitions are relaxed a person's imagination and creative talents and abilities can truly blossom. This was the formative basis for developing Robert LAMAR's Theatre of the MIND™.
LAMAR, in addition to more than forty years devoted to
the study of his craft, is a member of the International Brotherhood of Magicians (I.B.M.), a member of the Society of American Magicians and is also a member of the International Magic Society. The I.B.M. is the largest organization of its kind in the world. Membership is achieved only through sponsorship and LAMAR's sponsor into the society was provided by his very good friend and mentor, Peter Reveen.
