MindFX is proud to announce the impending release of the 'Orion Silver Edition Two Volume Set'. Written by Phedon Bilek, formatted by Phill Smith and printed by Haresign Press, these are destined to become two of the greatest mentalism book releases in the last decade!
The Orion project contains over 600 pages of extraordinary, elegant mentalism divided into two individual volumes, each book providing a lifetimes worth of learning within its covers. The fundamental concepts alone are the work of genius and easy to grasp within moments of reading them.
“What Phedon does is accessing not only thoughts but the way of thoughts. He teaches how to take seeming intangibles, like the ways people think, and sculpt them as if they existed in the realm of objects. Similarly, he manipulates and applies emotions, so they function almost as if they are sleights.” - Bill Cushman
Imagine being able to perform in any situation and with no props at all, not even slips of paper, just your mind and your audience’s mind. In this book, Phedon will teach you how to perform in this way. You will give your audience the ability to think of literally anything and then reveal their thoughts in a very entertaining way. Your audience will have no choice but to believe that you are reading their minds because in a very real sense you are reading their minds!
Now imagine that you are doing this without using any guesswork, no pre-show, no cold reading, no contact mind reading, no hypnosis, no suggestion; just a perfectly thought out process that you can easily learn and present. Phedon details many routines with complete scripts so that you, the reader, can learn how to perform these miracles with ease. Phedon unveils his groundbreaking methods for taking/harvesting the absolute bare minimum of information and spinning it into a revelation that rivals the finest presentations. What Phedon extracts from a name or a word is above and beyond anything that you will have seen before.
Throughout the course of teaching truly innovative, powerhouse routines, Phedon reveals the set of tools he has crafted to achieve his singular vision of how mentalism should be performed and experienced. Once learned, these tools, wildly creative yet relatively simple in application, will serve as an invaluable resource that will set your work apart. The “modular” quality of the methods offer you the ability to mix and match techniques and is certain to inspire and stimulate your own creativity.
Important Note: Far from being a simple ad copy designed to promote this project, the above information was actually collated from the personal views and experiences of both Jerome Finley and Bill Cushman after having the pleasure of working their way through both volumes of this project.
You can read Jerome Finley’s full thoughts on this project below…Even as the adverse effects of a global pandemic begin to slowly dissolve and come to a screeching halt, even as the world slowly begins turning back into something that represents a small degree of normalcy for many of us, I have personally used my time spent indoors, socially distanced and deep within a self-imposed quarantine to carefully study, adapt and adopt the contents of Phedon Bilek's beautiful new offering "ORION."
Even more than being sequestered with my closest friend, a new puppy and the fastest high-speed internet connections available, "ORION" has been my constant companion and Phedon our beloved teacher. For almost a year now leading up to the official release for our community I have made my way through both books in this set with the mental equivalent of a fine-toothed comb...in total, I have read, re-read, reviewed, consumed and re-consumed the full work no less than half a dozen times and upon each new reading I continue to draw new thoughts, feelings and inspiration from its pages.
This monumental project could have just as easily been titled "A Master Practicing" and soon you will understand why it is I say that. What Phedon has given us of himself through "ORION" has often left me speechless, mind-blown and in need of a bed to lie down for a spell, so dizzying were the implications and compounding residual effects.
At my last count, I have gleaned a full 22 different performance-ready pieces, 13 new methods and over 100 subtleties for use in my own active "real world" repertoire. As someone reticent to doing so, this alone speaks volumes as I've been known to go for years on end without so much as even adjusting slightly my pool of working-class material and go-to signature effects.
"ORION" was more than a labour of love, some creative brainchild or Phedon's latest passion project - I'm still unable to understand even how he can share this much with us and still walk upright and smiling. Were this my own material (which honestly wasn't ever THIS good!) I would be gutted, kicking and screaming the whole entire way to my "Book of the Year" award.
Mark my words.
