Wonderful Response at TA Conference

November 17th, 2010  |  Published in Blog  |  No Comments


I have just returned from a Transactional Analysis conference that was held in Freemantle, near Perth, Western Australia. It was a great success and was my first TA conference since about 1981.

I was scheduled for three events on the program: meditation every morning from 8.00 to 8.45, a panel that I proposed on how we can expand TA to respond to new understanding about Mind Body and Spirit, and a workshop called Becoming Whole. Everything was very well received and I loved participating in other people’s workshops. I was also very impressed with the way people were using powerpoint presentations in their workshops. They were highly skilled and had many lovely, dynamic ways of doing things.

Urban Mystic was a real hit, too. I sold all 10 copies that I took with me – before the end of two days, too. I also managed to arrange for a Kerry, a love lady who was handling book sales, to stock it as well several others (Pearls, Oscar’s Way, Bushfire) in her shop. Urban Mystic is also available online in lots of places: Angus & Robertson, Borders …  Just do a Google search for – “Urban Mystic” “Ken Mellor” Online Bookshops. My search came up with 65 options. It has been available internationally online since mid-way through last year, including in India.

It’s wonderful the way news is getting around!

Sales and Interest in Urban Mystic

November 12th, 2010  |  Published in Blog  |  No Comments


During our trip to UK in October, we did six workshops. At each one of them, there was great interest in Urban Mystic, resulting in lots of sales and some very amusing “signings”. It’s very gratifying that there is so much interest. People tell me they have got a great deal out of reading the book.

I am curently on the south-western coast of Australia – in Freemantle which is about 45 minutes south by car from Perth. I’m here for a Transactional Analysis conference called Healing Mind, Body and Spirit. As a sign of the amoutn of change made in the last forty years, I am in the official program conducting morning meditation sessions for all three days of the conference. We had the first session this morning and it was a beautiful experience. I am taking everyone through The Awakening Meditation in the three days, culminating in an initiation into the Vedic Mantra.

I managed to squeeze 10 copies of Urban Mystic into my baggage and today, the first day of the conference, all ten have sold! The shop handling things at the conference is really keen to stock the book, plus Elizabeth’s two – Oscar’s Way and Busfire. For Urban Mystic this means it will be in this shop in Freemantle, the TS Bookshop in Melbourne and in the Borders online bookshop in Australia. Lovely.
