PhotoReading – What is it?

What is the first lesson that is dropped as we progress through the educational system?


We are taught by our mothers, fathers, guardians, prior to going to school, sounding letters, words, sentences, “the cat sat on the mat”. We then go through the process of school.

They teach us to point at the word, sound the words out, and read out loud. Once we have learnt to read possibly at the age of 6 or 7, we are told to stop using our fingers as a guide, and stop reading out loud, unless to humiliate us in front of our classmates.

Do they teach us any more methods or reading skills? No. Yet they continue to educate us in science, history, geography, mathematics, etc, for which we need to gain information from books.

There are so many ways we can help in reading skills, but the population is not shown or taught. Reading is the one subject or ability we need on a daily basis.

Enter PhotoReading, and the associated skills taught in the course.


PhotoReading is not just turning the pages over at one page per second, there is a process we go through, this is the Whole Mind System.

There are five steps we go through, Prepare, Preview, PhotoRead, Post View, Activate, and then we can Rapid Read.

The two and a half day course teaches you each of these steps, and to experience them first hand.

We ask that you bring with you five (5) books, each of about 300 pages.

Four books will be on a single subject you know nothing about, but would like to know about, say the Kings and Queens of England, 1492 – 1556. I know you are interested, yes?

The fifth book will be on a subject you know about and you have also read the book. We ask that this book is not on NLP or related subjects, as many people who come on the PhotoReading course have a knowledge of the subject matter. 

During the course we will br Photoreading  these books and more using the whole system.

This information, the reading, the books, will go into the inner mind, the sub conscious mind, and not the conscious mind, it is only after we have completed the whole mind system, the steps mentioned above, is it that the information is placed in the conscious mind, when you will become aware of the information you seek, the purpose of your PhotoReading.

Will you be consciously aware of the whole book?

You will still read in the old sense, but only information relevant to your purpose, to bring it into the conscious mind, you will use other methods too to achieve this activation.

If you are a student, sure you will still study, complete your courses. But, the books you have been PhotoReading at the beginning of the course, will be in the inner mind and will be available to you. Study is quicker and so much more enjoyable. What would it be like to have read the reading list before the first class?

PhotoReading is a process, and you will practice it. Like riding a bike, the more you practice the easier and better it becomes, you do not have to think about doing it, you have the balance and power.

I am looking forward to meeting the people here in Bangalore this weekend to go through the process.

Perhaps Monday we will run a special Mind Maps course. Check the web site of in Bangalore, India.
