After the World-wide success of the trilogy of Emotional Mentalism, Luca Volpe is back with a book containing a new and exciting format!

SHABARA' has been written with one specific goal in mind: to spark your imagination and to stimulate the creative process, resulting in a mentalism experience which will deeply touch people's lives.

It's the story of a very skeptical young lady called Elizabeth, who reluctantly decides to attend and participate in a mystical show hosted by a "modern-day shaman" named SAHABARA'.

Over the course of this one special evening, many, many things happen, which not only compel Elizabeth into becoming a believer but completely change her views on life itself.

You will not only find beautifully thought-out routines and explanations within the pages of this book but you will also be part of Elizabeth's extraordinary journey and witness that the 'experiences' are more important than the 'methods'.

SHABARA' will also teach you how you can create wonderment, even before you have chosen the person who will assist you in your show, and lets you discover how a beautiful script can transform a simple idea into a powerful performance piece.

This book has been 'hand crafted', word by word, image by image, in order to give the reader the overall experience of not only seeing but also feeling the story unfold.

Each copy has been printed on premium 80# paper with a black background, white text, full color images and a gorgeous hard bound cover... A real collector's edition book that will take pride of place in any mentalism library.

If you are looking for the latest mentalist trick, then this book is probably not for you. However, if you would like to learn a full emotionally fueled show and simple methods which will help you to connect deeply with your audience, then SHABARA' is what you are looking for!

The routines included in this book are:

- Talking to the Moon Q&A Act
- Metronome Heart Beat Sync
- Petals
- You See What You Want To See
- Crystal Connection
- Spreading the Love
- Breathing Joy

Written by Luca Volpe

Edited by Paul McCaig.

Reviews:

"I just finished reading the book. It's something wonderful, among the many routines the one with rose petals and spreading the love are worth ten times the price of the book (and I'm keeping it low). Furthermore, the idea of reading the impressions and sensations (in the first part of the book) that a "believer" could have during a show of this type is very cool, even if calling it a show is almost an understatement, I would say milti-sensory experience. This book can be a great source of great inspiration, for me it was definitely going to improve my show for private parties. I already have some ideas on how to improve my program, which came thanks to reading ShabarĂ . In this challenging historical period, people need something beyond the simple "wow" effect and this book, along with Luca's previous three Emotional Mentalism will allow you to play in another league. My sincere congratulations Luca Volpe."

"Mine just came in last night and oh my goodness Luca you have made a miracle. I dove in and half way through. I love it!!!!! The mystique of it is breathtaking and bold. We need this kind of real Magic now."
- Murside Turan Jean

"What a great and unique reading experience! I love it from the first word to the last. I read it in one piece. wonderful, inspiring and captivating!"
- Dominik Pacher

"This book, It tells an enchanting story about a mystical act that two sisters attended. If it was possible, I'd pay big money to attend Shabara's performance. I read the story twice before reading Luca's explanations. Shabara began with Spreading the Love, which Luca says is worth ten times the cost of the book. I agree, and I can't wait for an opportunity to present it. It has the potential to be life changing, and it's totally real. That was the opener, and the performance built from there. In the introduction, Luca says that he wrote the book "to spark your imagination and to stimulate the creative process, resulting in a Mentalism experience which will deeply touch people's lives." He's succeeded wonderfully well."
- Richard Webster

"Just finished reading Luca Volpe's book "Shabara", and for the first time in 45 years of mentalism it took me 4 days to read a 67 page book, and I'll explain why! Indeed, for the truth, for the first time in 45 years of mentalism, I stopped at page 39, because when the narration of the shamanic show made by the two spectators who attended it ended, I closed the book and behaved like I had been a spectator of that show: I got up and, in a trance, I left! The next day I remembered that I had to read the "explanations" of the effects, and always for the first time I discovered that I did not want to know them, that it was enough for me to have "witnessed" the show of Shabara narrated in the book! Only after one more day did I start reading the explanation of the effects, which will ALL go straight into the lineup of my next show. Yes, because Luca Volpe did not sell us a book of mentalism effects, he first gave us a magical experience, truly magical, made of sounds, smells and magical words, and then put us in a position to present a show in its entirety that will be a true mystical experience for every person who will assist you! A book for refined palates, which as they say in many advertisements "will allow you to start your religion and live by doing just this".... only, this time, you can really do it!"

(This review is for Shabara by Luca Volpe - Book)
I am a fan of Luca Volpe, but this book was a letdown. It relies mostly on New Age things like Pharoah Cylinders, a Crystal Wand, a Tibetan Singing Bowl, and more. There are explanations to the rose petal act, a drawing reading, and a psychometry routine, but much of the rest depends on you making the audience "feel" like something happened (a stone got hot in their hand, their heartbeat moved to a metronome, etc), so this is more of a suggestion routine rather than real mentalism. He also gives you suggestions for "reading" people, though this is again one of those "you should dive in and try this" moments.

There is a drawing reading that is explained but then a drawing duplication is only hinted at after buying another product.

I bought this because of the hype surrounding the "experience", expecting a nice set of usable routines. Instead, this is mostly just a lot of suggestions to the audience that you have to hope they'll get or play along with. He stresses that this act is an experience that depends on the intimacy of the audience (13 people), the surroundings (proper music, crystals, mirrors, etc), and your ability to guide them. If you are heavily into New Age props like crystals and such, you will probably be inspired here. If you are looking for direct mentalism you can add to a regular show, you will be better off spending your money on something else.

Shame on you Luca for calling this a mentalism act. This is an amazing exploration of life. Luca, you are no longer a mentalist, but a mystic. This work is proof of that. As I read this book, I was transported to the room with the sisters, experiencing everything they did, I wanted to be really there with them. You have out done yourself again Luca. I fear that that any other book you write will never come close to the power of this work.

Now to the mentalists: If you are looking to add new mentalism effects to your act from this book, forget it. This is too powerful for the average performer. Yes, you could use one or two of the effects, but performed as Luca has written it would be nothing short of pure psychic reality. The effects in this book are not just simple mentalism tricks, but intuitive life changing, eye opening divinations. If you perform the act, you will change the the lives of the participants forever. After this, you will not call yourself a mentalist ever again.

What more can I say. Just reading Shabara has opened my third eye!
