The Ancient Child Thirty Day Program by Steven Barnes

The science I've always been most fascinated by are the various techniques of human mental and physical development. Martial arts, yoga, NLP, Ericksonian Hypnosis, Shamanism and other approaches. I've studied them all my life, and have various certifications and professional experience in several.

The Ancient Child is a unique visualization technique, designed by and for artists. It is designed to enhance flow, remove writer's block connected with fear, enhance creativity and heal negative emotions.

Start with the "Overview" PDF, which will give you the information you need to understand the program. The MP3 is designed to be used in a quiet, safe space, NOT while driving or operating machinery. Because this is a body-mind program, there is also a complete physical training program requiring only a few minutes a day, the "Five Tibetan Rite" system contained in the "Eye of Revelation" pdf.

In combination, this is extremely powerful stuff, and not to be underestimated.

Note: This package consists of two audio MP3 files and two PDF files.


I have known New York Times bestselling writer Steven Barnes for a long time now. While I love his writing, I find his teaching just as compelling. Every time I talk with him, I learn something new and valuable, not just about writing or publishing, but about life. He used to teach his classes on life and living at science fiction conventions, but the online world has made it possible for people everywhere to partake in Steve's wisdom. I think we're lucky to have him and his work in this bundle. – Kristine Kathryn Rusch
