Sometimes in life we find ourselves very privileged situations. These don't come around often but when they do they are highly memorable.

Several months ago I was witness to such an event. When Colin passed briefly through my neighbourhood he called in to say hi and during this visit he performed for me a routine that he held close to his heart, a routine which he has now titled "Zen".

Zen is a very powerful system for direct mind reading which relies on a very clever combination of tried and tested methodology.

This is a perfect matrimony of techniques that has begged itself to be discovered; even Colin himself admits that reading this manuscript will be very much a slap in the face "Why didn't I think of that" event. This is not a bad thing and I sincerely doubt that anyone other than Colin could have pieced this together.

On devouring "Zens" 28 pages you will learn the full in's and outs of this effect as well as some minor variations in handling. This effect is not difficult by any means which will allow the performer to concentrate his efforts almost entirely on the performance which will be remembered for a very long time.

I was one of the lucky few who got to preview this work for free yet (as with all of my other purchases from Colin) I would have been very happy with the contents had I paid for it in full.

Best Wishes Michael
As a mentalist you must always ask yourself what if! And throughout your life you should seek to ask and answer this question over and over again, only then will your wildest dreams become a reality!

Hi Michael,

Thanks for your review. What was the "word, name, place, movie, password" that you were thinking of? Also, how many questions were asked regarding what you were thinking before the prediction was revealed? Thanks!

Regards,
Mike

Insight I feel honoured to be compared to Colin (other than his hair style lol).

Seems Colin has a good memory too, and yep not a single question asked, but at least I now know who tampered with my Facebook account!

;)

As the manuscript is being laughed at MindVention, I won't be able to post the others until my return on the 19th but they will be going immediately!!

Thanks to everyone who has preordered this already. I have most copies awaiting my arrival in the US, so of the copies held in the UK, most of them have already been bought.

I am truly overwhelmed! This is on of this simple and powerful pieces that I'm convinced will become something the owners, like me, use constantly.

Exciting times.

I remember when Colin first shared his idea with me. He was looking for a different and unique way to reveal a thought. Most of us Mentalists who perforrm on stage, know the importance of making the reveals visual and interesting for the entire audience to see, and engage in. Admittedly at first, I kind of laughed at his initial idea.

But just like Nikola Tesla, Galileo, and the Wright brothers, Colin goes on the list of unconventional thinkers who in the end turn out to be Genius. After reading the final incarnation of what I originally thought was silly, made my head spin around. What I love most about ZEN is that the method cleverly amalgamates with the presentation. Everything is justfied and creates a full 100% real feeling of mind reading.

One of my personal goals when creating effects and presentations, is that the participant experiences the FEELING of having their mind read. ZEN 100% fulfills that criteria for me. One of the keys to creating that feeling, and that experience is continuity in presentation. Of course methods can often dictate the presentation, causing us to come up with the most ridiculous justifications for random actions that are inconsistent with the process or presentation. ZEN overcomes that obstacle.

For those who have pre-ordered ZEN, you're NOT going to be disappointed. For those still debating, don't purchase this just to appease your curiosity. This isn't a puzzle waiting to be solved. If you're just into puzzles, check out this cool website: http://www.miniclip.com IT'S FREE!

For everyone else who's looking to expand their repertoire and heighten their audience's experiences in their performances, well you know what to do...

It occured to me at once that love could be a great illusion, that makes fools of brilliant thinkers everyday

I'd also just like to point out that I only have 11 left.

I will have a stack of them at MindVention, but I probably won't have time to do any more until after the new year (Christmas is a busy time!)

Well, Colin’s done it again! Zen is one of the most devious methods ever devised for replicating the experience of genuine mind-reading. They say nothing, they write nothing down and yet you can reveal exactly what they are thinking. Yes, of course there is a process, but it is one completely congruent with both the premise and the effect and if anything merely serves to add a much needed focus to the performance. And it works in any language, close-up and on stage, for one person or a thousand.

Zen is a perfect example of Al Baker’s famous quote that “magicians stop thinking too soon”. Colin has taken a principle that everyone is familiar with and re-imagined it in a way that increases its impact a million percent! It has the beautiful simplicity and stark elegance of all the most ground-breaking ideas. You’ll be using it straight away and at every available opportunity.

When Colin first showed me this earlier in 2012, I was grinning from ear to ear at how clever it is and asked him immediately if I might add it to my repertoire. Since then it has become my ‘go-to’ performance piece and from experience I can promise you that it leaves nothing to be desired in terms of both impact and memorability.

If you make one more purchase this year, make it now and make it Zen Smile
