Quote of the Week: Virginia Woolf

A beautiful piece of wisdom from Virginia Woolf. English writer, considered one of the most important modernist 20th-century authors and a pioneer in the use of stream of consciousness as a narrative device (do you use your own stream of consciousness in your creative practices?)

My first publications were digital, so I highly value the importance of eBooks and videos, but there is nothing like a book. A book is a manifestation in itself, a power-object that inspires, teaches discipline and focus, and opens your imagination in ways that a screen simply cannot.

That is why at Mentalism Center we offer you different books for your learning experience in the Mystery Performances. 

Do you want one book to explore deeper ways in which you
 can understand Mystery Performance? Get Birreal (digital version for free)

Do you want books to get a lot of ideas, pieces and new insights? Simply Mental and Simply Mental II

If you know our work at Arkanosophy, we offer several book tests as well for your repertoire, as declaration of the potential importance of books in our performance, and in our life.

 It is sad and funny whenever someone asks: 

"Why using a book in performance?" 
 searching for an apparent "justification" for the use of books in performance. Believe me, those people searching for justification for books dont have a relationship with books or the habit of reading.

Embrace the habit of reading books, keep always a book beside your bed. Keep books near you, surround yourself with creativity and ideas. If you truly do it in your life, you will find powerful motivations to use books in your next performance.

What is the book that you are reading right now?

Invest your money, time and energy in good sources of information and inspiration. 

Thanks Virginia for your powerful wisdom!
