Jhana is the first limited edition book from the creative mind of Watkins.

He has agreed to finally release some of the work he has kept mainly to himself and only shared with a few of his close friends, up until now.

After slowly building his reputation as one of the stand out under-ground creators amongst his peers we have decided it is time to finally let others know about him and for his ingenious ideas to be shared with the community, as a whole.

Jhana is an e-book containing a collection of real secrets that utilize traditional method combined with subtleties of language and the use of words to shift perception.

With the knowledge held within it's pages you will be able to do the following:

Divine Moment of Truth — The performer tells a story of a life changing experience he once had that explained all the mysteries of the universe. He writes down the secret to life on a piece of paper and shows it to one participant. The participant reads what is written and has a genuine emotional reaction (this is the effect which caused a spectator to cry in the video that was shared for a brief time on line).

Severance — A method for 'instant pre-show' and for making billets invisible. A way to apparently reveal names, dates, pin codes without these ever seemingly written down.

Introjection — A participant is put into a 'trance'. The performer is then seen to reveal details about the participants life that he could not possibly know. Including things that were never written down.

When the Sky Was Opened — The performer is seen to literally 'steal' the name of a best friend from the mind of the participant. The participant is then seen to be incapable of speaking the name. The performer then 'puts their thought back into their head' whilst at the same time revealing the name.

The Flutter of Black Wings — A way to divine the pin number of the participant or have them divine yours. Includes additional subtleties and ideas from Peter Turner and Fraser. (Sold previously in a separate manuscript)

A Soon to be Classic! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 6th, 2017
I have Watkins's hardback version of the book, and without a doubt, it is going to become a classic. He mixes billets, dual reality, and even some hypnosis to create masterpieces. Lets go over each effect.

Divine Moment of Truth-
An effect where you talk about how you had a life changing dream that revealed to you all the secrets of the universe. You wrote the secrets down on a piece of paper, and kept the paper. You show it to one participants, and they have a genuine emotional/physical reaction to what was written.

Practicality-10/10, the plot is amazing

Difficulty- 3/10, still pretty easy to do, but probably is the second hardest in the book to do(due to its mechanical nature)

Impact-10/10, spectators have cried when reading the message.

Overall-9/10

The Flutter of Black Wings-
Anywhere, anyplace, any time, you can divine the first 4 digits of a participants bank card.

Practicality-9/10, the reason I give it a 9, is because people may be uncomfortable about you guessing their credit card numbers.

Difficulty-1/10, probably the easiest effect in the book to pull off. It is natural, and to the point mentalism.

Impact-10/10,Imagine if someone told you the first 4 digits of your bank card. It would be pretty impressive.

Overall- 9.7/10.(I want to clarify, you do NOT peek the card. If they have the number memorized, you can do it without them pulling the card out to look at it)

Severance-
A billet technique that allows for instant pre-show. You can reveal information, without it ever seemingly being written down.

Practicality-10/10

Difficulty-2/10, as spectator control might be a problem.

Impact-???. This is meant to be used with other effects as opposed to one effect, but you could use it alone if you want.

Overall-9/10

Introjection-
Put a spectator into a trance, and then reveal things about their live theres no way you could know, even things not written down. Probably my favorite effect in the entire book!

Practicality-8/10, very practical, but may be considered convoluted to some. I dont think so though.

Difficulty-2/10, might be too bold for some.

Impact-10/10

Overall-8.7/10

When the Sky was Opened-
Have the participant think of a name. Literally steal the name from their mind. At this point when asked, they have forgot their best friends name. You reveal the name, whilst putting it back in their head at the same time.

Practicality-10/10, this plot is the most original I've read in a long time.

Difficulty-3/10, a very hard effect to achieve, but after practice, the result is amazing!

Impact-10/10

Overall-9/10

*OVERALL BOOK*-10/10


This is a fantastic book, and highly recommend to any mentalist.

First try, first giant hit... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 17th, 2017
Yesterday i performed a mix between AOK by lewis le val an jhana's divine moment of truth. There was a moment between a woman and me, that was more than just an effect and the "aha" moment. In the end, we where sitting at the edge of the stage and it felt like we were all alone in the room. Everyone was as quiet as possible. I showed her the secret message and her eyes were full of tears, i whispered something additional to her and gave her a hug and the applause for her was huge. The moment itself was much bigger than the effect and a perfect ending of my show last night. It needs little of practice and doesn't play big... it plays huge in the right hands. I will play with the effects much more to test, how big they can grow. Jhana is a must have for every serious mentalist...

GENIUS GENIUS GENIUS Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 6th, 2017
Jhana contains amazing effects that are so deceptive and relatively EASY to perform. The methods are ingenious and allow you to create your own unique presentation. Divine moment of truth is my favorite effect and that alone is worth buying this book. If you love to leave friends, family members, or spectators speechless, Jhana is a must have. Don't waste money on that gimmick everyone knows looks suspicious and you probably bought at a magic store, step into the world of Mentalism and you will never get tired of people asking you "since when do you have these abilities".

Traditional Meets Modern Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 27th, 2017
There is immense value in learning from the classics. But sometimes the issue is how to apply and mold the classics. Jhana contains 5 effects so the cost is $10 per effect. The mentalism in this book combines traditional methods such as billets with boldness. This is not a book for the beginner. One must be comfortable with the mechanical aspects such as CT's and Billets and peeks. However, this book allows one to perform as if those mechanical techniques are invisible. This requires subtleties and extreme confidence (all of mentalism is such). Also, Fraser Parker's comments are fitting and aid in the material taught. The layout is great in PDF. This is the type of book you read twice or thrice. (There are elements of pseudo hypnotism involved in the book as well; however, if you know hypnotism, the effects will be greater).
Overall, if you are an intermediate mentalist with experience, Jhana will be a worthy investment.

Really Practical Blend of Methodology Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 18th, 2017
Robert Watkins' brand of mentalism combines traditional techniques with modern subtlety to make for a very unique experience for both the audience and performer, alike. I particularly enjoyed Jhana a lot because the material looks and feels propless in performance, but that's only because Watkins structures each routine to make the necessary items and moves absolutely invisible. Each effect is so powerful and versatile, it's easy to cater the routines to one's own individual character and leave a memorable impression upon an audience. This is a really practical blend of methodology; fans of Annemann and Corinda and/or Fraser Parker and Peter Turner will find significant value in this book. Highly recommended.

Watkins is a genius! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 28th, 2017
Well... what can I say?! Watkins is brilliant. He is easily a legend in the making. A bold claim I know, but all it takes is a look at the material in this book to see that he is going to be the next Osterlind, the next Cassidy, the next Turner, the next mentalism great.
This book is highly reccomended, especially to any Mentalist looking for deceptive methods to use in their work!
