Hey guys,

I've been getting a lot of questions about 'Zen' on Facebook so thought I would just answer them all here as it's a more appropriate place to do so.

Zen is without doubt one of the best things I have ever created. Now, that already sounds like sales hype, so let me explain exactly why I can say that.

First of all, what is it?! I have someone think of a word, name, place, movie, password ... And I reveal it. They don't choose it from a list, it's a private thought which they choose. And at no point is it written down, whispered to anyone, or drawn in the air.

So at this point, half of you will be interested and half of you are trying to work out what I've neglected so you can fathom 'what it is.'

It's not psychology, it's 100% sure fire. IT CANNOT FAIL.

There is obviously 'something' going on, that's what you're buying!, but it's completely natural  and allows you to reveal the word in a really exciting way which makes the makes the process of mind reading really believable.

This is going to be priced at $100 and only 250 maximum will be sold.

I'm going to be launching this at MindVention so will have a pile of copies with me there.

If you have any questions, please ask away! Obviously I'm going to be delicate with how I answer, but I certainly won't give any misleading information. 

I do have a few professional performers reading this at the moment (it's roughly a 25 page manuscript, hard copy, fully illustrated) and I will be sharing their thoughts and opinions soon.

Let me stress, THIS IS REALLY SIMPLE. It's designed to be used in the real world. Someone thinks of something and piece by piece. You reveal it. I've used this to convince many sceptical people that I'm really reading their minds. So far, every performer who has seen me use it has loved the combinations I'm using to create something totally new and direct.

Much love!

"Colin's Zen is something I've enjoyed seeing him use and refine for a while and what you're receiving here is his thinking of this extremely simple method for revealing just about anything that someone might be thinking. What is more curious still is that this is one of the few routines that perfectly bridges mentalism and magic and so is perfectly suited for your hardcore mentalist using it either close up or on stage, as much as it is for a good magician who wants to add something with a strong mental "slap in the face" to their conjuring performances.

Truthfully though, Zen is not what anyone should be getting excited about. It's the bonus. Subtle and devastating." - Ken Dyne

"Colin has taken a principle we all know and has created a fantastic piece of pocket mentalism that will play on a stage. Yup, you heard me, pocket mentalism that can hold its own on stage. 'Zen' allows the performer to reveal the word a contributor is thinking of, letter by letter, and it will be 100% correct 100% of the time without the person writing anything down. If you're not excited, you're not human!" - Paul Brook Mind Reader

Neither. You're missing me saying its THEIR PERSONAL THOUGHT.

I have no influence over their thought. I just reveal it.

This sounds very much like when "This Way Up" was first discussed here on the Café. It sounded like a real miracle.

Hi Colin,

How is this different from "This Way Up"? Is it an improvement? Thanks.

Mike

This is totally different from this way up.

It's a personal thought.

Can be done one on one or in a stage show.

I wasn't comparing the principle or method to "This Way Up" just the add hype suggesting miracle status.

The "bridge between magic and mentalism" in ken dynes testimonial and the reference to "pocket mentalism" as opposed to "improptu mentalism" in Paul Brooks testimonial makes me wonder if I will need to construct a gimmick.
I no longer smoke camel cigarettes.

Like I said, you're all welcome to speculate.

I do hope people who know my work know that I aim to design the most direct demonstrations of mentalism possible.

This is personally one of my absolute favourites.

Hype ... Unfortunately the way magic works is that you can't explain exactly what it is, or there is no point buying it.

Much like the Sanada gimmick is a magic gimmick, I think I'm good at taking something and using it in new ways. Sometimes they're ****, in this case, I think I've hit upon something wonderful. I'm biast.

I, for one, am inclined to believe that this will be impressive both in methodology and effect.

I suspect that with all that trimming up Colin has done, his brain is running keener than ever.
