On the Couch with Isaac Lomman

Isaac Lomman Arts Review On the CouchWho is Isaac Lomman?
An Adelaide born and based, International Stage Hypnotist.

What would you do differently to what you do now?
I love what I do now, but if I was to take a slightly different direction it would be using my craft as a motivational tool for groups seeking to improve in their field.

Who inspires you and why?
Derren Brown is fantastic. A master of many areas of both illusion and hypnotism, he plants the seed of fantasy in audiences minds.

What would you do to make a difference in the world?
I’d start with including Permaculture courses in the education curriculum and build better approaches to sustainable food systems that leave no room for GMO, pesticide riddled fruit and veg. This way kids get out in the world, get their hands dirty and reconnect with where food actually comes from, building a better appreciation for the basic building blocks of life.

Favourite holiday destination and why?
There’s a great spot on the southern coast of South Australia called Lady Bay. It was our Summer destination when I was growing up and there’s lots to do for kids with even a mild imagination. Otherwise; Phuket, Thailand was a great holiday too.

When friends come to town, what attraction would you take then to, and why?
I’d take them on a little wine tour either through McLaren Vale or the Barossa. Great atmosphere in both places for a lazy afternoon of sight seeing.

What are you currently reading?
Life in Half a Second by Matthew Michalewicz – great book!

What are you currently listening to?
Songs from the 90’s when I was growing up: Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jeff Buckley, Pearl Jam, Foo Fighters

Happiness is?
Watching my two-year-old daughter grow and learn about the world around her. Especially when she copies me walking around telling people to “SLEEP”.

What does the future hold for you?
Hopefully international tours and festivals so I can continue to explore this wonderful planet, whilst bringing some laughter and awe to different pockets of the world.
