[Urban Mystic] is certainly a facinating book to read. I’m planning to re-read it again shortly as I couldn’t put it down the first time and sped through it.

Really Been There & Done That! – Siddharth Deshmukh (Pune, India)

May 27th, 2010  |  Published in Reviews  |  No Comments


This book has the insights and wisdom of a person who has truly been there and done that, before actually preaching to someone else. Ken Mellor writes effortlessly of a variety of deep concepts – births within a life, for instance, or communicating telepathically, for another, but it is spoken with deep personal experience backing it up which gives it gravitas.

Again – the tone and manner of the book isn’t looking down upon you – you feel as if you are invited into a journey involving the urban mystic’s life. It is indeed difficult for a person to be a typical psychoanalyst (which Mellor was) and a mystic (which requires you to look at life not as a mere puzzle but an enduring mystery) but it is clear that Mellor has indeed led that life. Worth a read!

Congratulations, I have just started to read your book and have to say it’s one of the easiest books to read, your writing style is very much like your meditations:  light, flowing and clear.  I have to tell you that as I have been reading I hear your voice in my head, which is lovely.

An Extraordinary Tale of an Ordinary Bloke – John Hofton

April 9th, 2010  |  Published in Reviews  |  No Comments


This is the extraordinary tale of an `ordinary bloke’ as Ken Mellor describes himself, in his book, `Urban Mystic’.

This is a great read: I savoured … this book the way one leaves the best part of the meal until last, taking in one chapter at a time, digesting it and awaiting the inspiration that would come from each one. Read the rest of this entry »

An Intense Read – Nicola Woolley

… this book had me from the start.

Short episodes unfold to illustrate universal themes – in sequence but not chronologically. So I was not weighed down by needless background and kept wanting to know more.

The writer has kept his open and generous approach to life, and humans, through some tough challenges and potentially diverting experiences of intense pleasure. How did he do this?

How does each of us do this? [While] there is no single path to enlightenment, … I believe this book succeeds in lighting the way for the reader – whatever their direction.

Facinating – Anne Thornton

My dear Ken, what a great read! I spent the week-end curled up with “Urban Mystic” – a truly facinating insight into your life. Thank you for sharing it so beautifully.

I Absolutely Loved this Book – Tony Smark

I read it in two sittings, but only because I needed to sleep. Fortunately my wife was away for a few days and I was able to read all day and night. I loved Ken Mellor’s easy to read and at times gripping writing style and the way he so eloquently described his awakening process. The book is not only thoroughly entertaining and page-turning, but it also provides the reader with a blueprint for how an ordinary person can go about accessing his or her own divinity.

A Moving Personal Account – Mark Davis

April 9th, 2010  |  Published in Reviews  |  No Comments


Ken Mellor has a well established international reputation as a teacher, writer, meditation Master and therapist. This moving, personal and always entertaining account of the mystical journey of an ‘ordinary’ [bloke] … is an inspiring account of the possibilities available to us all.

I enjoyed the openness and humour with which the author shared his experiences, and the frankness with which he disclosed his human struggles … Throughout is revealed a resolute integrity and a special determination to be fully Himself, [which] is catalytic in its effect on the reader. My heart was opened as [Ken’s] journey penetrates into the most refined and expanded aspects of what it is to be a human being. I strongly recomend this book to all travellers on the Path.
