MIND DEVELOPMENT COURSE 8 ~ Zen & the Art of Calculation

The Goal of Zen is the state of 'No-Mind'. This is an intuitive way of dealing with the world. The aim of this course is to enable a Student to turn on a particular form of 'No-Mind' consciousness that can be applied to a practical task - that of arithmetical calculation.

To achieve a state of 'No-Mind' as far as numbers are concerned one must first break down the conditioning which the average person receives at school. To achieve this goal, habitual responses must be set up which are the inverse of linearity. Several parts of the calculation have to be handled simultaneously.

This course provides exercises through which operations can be undertaken in parallel, so the Student can discover a super-ordinate structure to mathematical operations. When such parallel working is allowed to happen in the mind, the result will be obtained about five times as fast, so it appears to be instantaneous - a 'No-Mind' state of consciousness.

Gregory Mitchell was a Mind Development researcher and practitioner for over 30 years. Born in 1947, he grew interested in the subject of mental evolution and development during adolescence. Following a Diploma in Psychology, Gregory obtained a Masters Degree in Eclectic Psychology. He then introduced a wide range of techniques to his private practice, including Transactional Analysis, NLP and Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy, plus many of his own innovative techniques.

Gregory ran group courses in Mind Development for 25 years in London that successfully applied his research. His students and clients came from many countries around the globe.

Gregory went on to research at the most advanced levels of Mind Development and discovered many further important insights - in particular, original work on mnemonics, artificial languages and logic. The latest research by cognitive scientists is only now beginning to uncover the ideas and methods that Gregory Mitchell had been working with for 30 years!

Before he retired in 1994, Gregory employed Peter Shepherd, founder of Trans4mind, at his company in London. He was mentor to Peter Shepherd for several years and much of the knowledge-base upon which was founded in 1998 was derived from this foundation.

For 30 years Gregory Mitchell researched and developed the techniques for developing mental capacities such as memory, speed reading, enhanced intuition and creativity, and increased IQ.

Gregory ran group courses for many years in London that successfully applied his research. I was fortunate to work with him for several years during that time - his wide-ranging teachings are a major influence on the content of my book Transforming the Mind and the resource I have developed at
