It’s not mystical.
Reading it won’t help you see into the future or talk to the dead.
And it isn’t therapy, although it might have beneficial side effects.
What it will do is help you access your imagination and use it, in ways that you might never have imagined possible.
Using a series of exercises and increasingly in depth ‘trips’, the book sets out clear and concise steps to enable individuals and groups to access their imagination and unconscious reason, to work on behalf of others. Using a series of exercises such as ‘Becoming a Bat’, ‘Crawling’, ‘Draw a Sound’ and ‘Impersonating a Human’, Marcus Coates has developed his own practical techniques to solve problems that we might otherwise remain dumbfounded by.
Illustrated throughout with Coates’ own drawings, the text is both beguiling and funny – though intentionally serious.
It comes with one last warning:
The book is a practical manual.
All the exercises have been tried and tested. All are achievable and have realistic aims, and have no need of prior knowledge.
The author and publisher of this book are, however, not responsible for any injury or trauma incurred from following the instructions, techniques and exercises.
