I really enjoyed the workshop. It was very creative and fun, an inspiration to be part of. I left the workshop with a confidence that I can write a book, and I have already started the process. Tom has such a huge knowledge not only about the publishing industry and how it really works, but also he helped us to clear blocks so that we could tap into our inspirations – thank you Tom you are a master in unleashing the book within – @cimbartlett

The day seem to fly with exercises being particularly ‘easy’ to get into. Even when blocks have been experienced Tom managed to lead me through them and his thinking outside of the box invited new material and ideas to pour in. There was a great detail of very useful information even if you are not serious about writing a book just yet and applicable to any other areas of your life. Thank you Tom, I know a writer’s seed has been planted – Tanja Gower

Thoroughly enjoyed it, fantastic day, not often I come away from a workshop and feel as if I have ten times more information than expected. Would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to write or get their material published. Tom is authentic and walks his talk! Thank you – Mary Daniels

Inspirational course that I really enjoyed. I hope you do manage to arrange monthly motivation meetings – Christine Tomlinson

I enjoyed the workshop very much. It was very informative and helpful.I was quite ignorant re the publishing world. The information which Tom gave us during the course of the workshop will help me to channel myself in the right direction – Joya Das

Wide ranging, practical – Helen Griffith

Tom has a natural enthusiasm about writing and his enthusiasm is very infectious. The workshop had a good mix of the practical, spiritual and useful information about the publishing industry – Janet Limb

A good day and quite a different approach to writing than I have previously experienced. Lots of positivity and tips on publishing and deadlines – Gloria Savoy-Voller
– – – – – – – –
Taking on the dream of writing a book can be intangible and esoteric and therefore many would-be authors float around frustratedly in a world lacking structure feeling anchorless. I left Tom’s course energised with a spring in my step; which after a day-long course says a lot. More importantly I had 13 well-engineered mindmaps instilling a sense of shape to my plan and a bearing upon which to set my compass. Tom is a skilled facilitator who gave a great deal of himself. It is rare, if ever, that I walk away from a day’s workshop energised. Truly rare. You are a prime example of what I would call someone who is ‘career dovetailed’, in the zone, centred, purposeful and filled with innate conviction. Thank you. Well done today, Tom! – Duncan Bolam

I am now going to write the book(s) that Tom unleashed in me yesterday! I thought there was one, but seems after a good nights rest, there are 3 that want to come out! – Cheryl-lee Broadfoot
– – – – – – – –
‘New Age’ but highly practical; hard headed but not cynical; generous but not gushing; good fun, and hard work. It did much more than it said on the tin. Thanks – Keith Hutcheson

I am just looking at your Home Study study material – it is amazing – I want to be able to prepare something like that for whatever I am to do! This is fab, I never realised that you are real wizard! Well done! – Tanja Gower

Unleash your Book with iMindMap

I have been mind mapping for many years and it has really helped me increase my creativity and productivity – as well as giving me unprecedented clarity over what I am working on.

Although I am comfortable with maintaining my creativity while working on a computer, for many people, the very use of a keyboard, screen and mouse, switches the left brain into dominant mode – thus suppressing the creative right hemisphere.

For this reason, on my workshops and in the Home Study online course, I recommend that, at least, the early maps are done with paper and pen.

Imagine my surprise when I came across the latest version of iMindMap from Tony Buzan. At last, mind mapping software which doesn’t constrain the user to a rigid framework. It uses a clever vector graphics engine so that the map is not limited by the technology or the screen in a rectilinear fashion. As such, it can be introduced much earlier in the creative writing process.

For authors who have taken the Home Study course, if you purchase iMindMap, I will send you a free set of mind map templates to help you plan, execute and manage your book project.

You can get a free trial and purchase iMindMap here

mastertrainerlogo_175Latest News: Nov ’08: I have now qualified as a Master Trainer for the software.

I am running a series of training courses in the South East of England in 2009 – for dates and booking and to find out how to Change Your Mind, click here

Creative Writing with Meditation Machines

Apocryphally Salvador Dali used to put a spoon under his elbow around siesta time. We he nodded off and it clattered to the floor, he’d awaken and paint what was on ‘his mind’.

Nowadays artists, writers and musicians can use modern technology in the form of Meditation Machines to achieve the same result in a much more controlled manner.

Tom Evans is using meditation machines to teach authors how to get their conscious minds out of the way so that they can tap into their unconscious mind and the collective consciousness.

Many people have experienced this mode of thinking as a light bulb moment. The easiest and cheapest way to tap into so-called light bulb moments is to meditate regularly. For many people though the thought of meditating each day though seems like an anathema in their modern day lives. How can you waste 20-30 minutes of an already busy day?

In actual fact regular meditation makes the rest of your day go so well that you can save hours of time and it has been proven to extend life expectancy too. You will get the time invested back in spade fulls.

That said, many people have trouble getting their mind to be quiet and might not know when they are actually in a deep meditative state. This is where using a  Meditation Machine comes in.

Using a progressive programme of gentle exercises, the user is taken into deeper and deeper states from waking beta to relaxing alpha and deeper theta induction.

In the latter state, where the brain is in theta, the mind is connected with the collective consciousness and creativity just flows.

“Using these techniques, I have got students to come up with the most amazing titles for their books and to get whole chapters as a complete vision in one session,” says Tom. “The resulting productivity is amazing.”

Writer’s block becomes a thing of the past and associated fears of rejection and unworthiness seem to dissipate like magic too as a bonus. Getting better sleep and other health benefits make it a no-brainer.

While it is common for most meditation to occur with eyes closed, the Mind Spa machine also allows you to enter the meditative state with your eyes open. This equivalent state is one you can enter while out walking – but you can be working at your computer at the time on your best seller.

“The brilliant thing about meditation machines is that you can use them at any time during the day for a quick top up or injection of inspiration,” says Tom, “and they are useful for experienced and non-experienced meditators.”

This blog was even written just after a meditation light alpha relaxation session.

Want to know the art & science behind light bulb moments?

It’s somewhat ironic that Edison, who invented the light bulb by trying 10,000 or so possible filaments, probably didn’t know this particular secret. If he did, he could have saved himself a lot of time.

Have you ever woken up one day and had a light bulb moment – perhaps with a brilliant idea for a book you’d like to write? Have you then been daunted by the thought of the prospect you’d actually have to write it?

Imagine then if you knew how to continually tap into even more light bulb moments on demand such that the ideas you have for the book and the words in it are just right first time. Couldn’t you save yourself loads of time, sweat and tears?

Well, you can learn the secrets behind how to do this on my one day workshop and my 1-2-1 correspondence course to Unleash the Book Inside.

I have been swamped with ideas since I was a child and recently have tapped into the source of all ideas AND how I can teach others to do just the same – doing this for others was even one of my own light bulb moments !

So, if you want to write a book and you are faced with the challenge of not knowing where to start and with the fear that your inspirational flow might dry up, then the Unleash the Book Inside workshop and correspondence course is for you.

Here’s what previous clients and attendees said :
“I attended Tom’s workshop today expecting a course about the mechanics of writing. What I got was even better which was the mechanics of inspiration! Tom showed us how to think about writing but also how to stop thinking about it and start doing it! It has inspired me to action! If you want to write a book or even just write regular articles then I thoroughly recommend it.” – Richard White

“There is no other way to write a book. Tom injects a certain magic to the whole process.”

“Tom is able to communicate complex ideas and theories in an extremely engaging fashion. Budding authors will find Tom inspiring.”

“This is cutting edge thinking about how our minds work but presented in an easily digestible manner.”

“Really thought provoking, reinforcing the importance of meditation.”

“His insights, intuition and inspiration are invaluable – from thinking I couldn’t write a book to suddenly finding the words flowing was fantastic. Tom has an amazing way of seeing the things that you don’t see during the writing process, which helps unblock those ‘writers block’ moments.” – Jo Simpson, Dubai

“He mentors you in assembling your material in the best way possible, leading to the addition of dimensions that you had not even thought of yet. I now have restored belief in my writing ability and creativity.”
