  “A man without imagination is just shadow of his full potential.”  

In this remarkable book, Silvia shares with us how simple it is to tap into our infinite creative side and never ever run out of ideas again.
Infinite creativity is a must have and a must read to the aspiring authors and poets, I was one of them!

  Just wanted to say how much I still enjoy using the Apollonius Quartet audios. I've had them for two years and I occasionally feel moved to let them do their magic on me. Listening to them again always renews my appreciation for the work you do.

  I am very happy to sign up this course and able to learn so much from it. These courses are so well written and have helped me learning much new stuff.  

After two months of working with the Symbols, I grow from unfamiliar with it till now it is like a soul mate that we work together to gain more insight in energy work such as divination and healing. I have learnt many new ways of using the Symbols to enhance my healing art. The most important I learnt to understand myself and the energy mind more. I trust more in magic and miracle. I have also improved my visioning or Project Sanctuary work. I love all the journey to different Habitat and each times I feel I have learnt something new. I feel I have improved a lot in my intuition and gain more confident. I have become more lightening, creative and fill with lots of enthusiasm to reach out to others and use these symbols to help them.

I want to integrate this into my healing art to offer them services to able to benefit people, animals and space healing. I hope to... Read Full Review

  The Genius Symbols encompasses Visualisation, Hypnosis, NLP, EFT, Matrix Reimprinting, Psycho-Cybernetics, BSFF, Pysch-K, The Emotion Code, Law of Attraction, in a much more workable way to enable an ordinary working man like me to realise a better life  

I have done a little of Visualisation, Hypnosis, NLP, EFT, Matrix Reimprinting, Psycho-Cybernetics, BSFF, Pysch-K, The Emotion Code, and Law of Attraction – I now realise that we can all have our own Abraham and much more besides!!!

I believe The Genius Symbols encompasses all of the above and much more in a workable way that will enable an ordinary working man like me to eventually realise the better life I have always wanted.

Let's hope so and thank you for creating something so utterly fantastic.

  With The Genius Symbols, we have the ultimately evocative keys to directly engage our own energy minds, access universal yet deeply personal wisdom and have our own visions.  

What does it take to get this old Viking to lay aside her well-worn Rune Stones or this TCM practitioner to let her I Ching stand in reverence only on the top shelf? More than the dawning of the Age of Aquarius!

From every direction we are encouraged to get out of the limiting forms of the traditional formulas of divination and discovery, as beloved and inspiring as they may be. We long to answer the call of our hearts to live vibrantly and be lead more intuitively but are simply lacking the tools.

With The Genius Symbols, we have the ultimately evocative keys to directly engage our own energy minds, access universal yet deeply personal wisdom and have our own visions. This is what makes life worth living! Creating and living our very own stories ... our destinies if you will.

During the last two days I've been playing with the genius symbols and have experienced some fantastic results and mind blowing threshold shifts and would like to share what I have been doing.

I had been thinking about relationships and working through some of the exercises found in Sandra Hillawi's wonderful book 'The love clinic" (https://dragonrising.com/store/the_love_clinic/).

One of the exercises in the book is concerned with using the law of attraction to attract the relationship you want into your life. There are several steps that follow, but firstly, you must build a concept of what you want, in as detailed a way as possible. By doing this you are building a thoughtfield.

This is where I ran into serious problems: what do I really want? If I make a conscious list the qualities are often rather eclectic, ranging from the sexual attributes to the more... Read Full Review

  There will never be boredom in your life again!  

I am completely flabbergasted about my inner creativity. Through and with these symbols created by Silvia I come into my innermost truth. My Energy Mind creates stories which I would never have regarded as possible. And I am only at the beginning and already have filled in A 4 books with my stories within 3 weeks With these stories I experience a creative and as well astonishing logical process of a solution of a conflict. At the end of each story is always peace and fun and releasing.

Silvia has created 23 symbols, from which I have made a laminated card deck of to my pleasure. At the beginning I formulate a contract with my Energy Mind, what I want to solve. I begin a way with the symbols provided by Silvia, which forms the base of a story and I then draw a card after the other from my deck, dive into my own scenery and out of the blue fantastic thoughts and metaphors come from inside me and a...

I met a new friend, had a chat and next thing i had a big shift in the heart region, seemed to have shifted a big block,flowing tears and deep feelings..... Amazing indicator for me that I am in my flow by making the connection with your fantastic Symbols. I am on my next adventure, will keep in touch. Id say get them out there........you are on to something many will connect with. I particularly like that I do the work inmy own way at my own pace, and the simplicity of the tool. Genius indeed. :)

  Project Sanctuary never fails to surprise and with Dr Hartmann’s new creation, “The Genius Symbols” its power has increased exponentially.  

Silvia Hartmann has provided a door to our untapped potential with a concept that is both elegant in its simplicity and yet filled with deep and complex meaning. The Genius Symbols may be used as a tool of self-development, as a way of exploring and freeing the problems of the psyche that beset us all, a tool of divination, a tool of healing and relaxation, and many, many other uses.

These are an interactive tool, a method that will grow and evolve along with the user, a technique that will never grow stale.

The Genius Symbols are experiential and I would urge everyone to try them.

Be warned though, this excellent book may well keep you up all night for you will find it impossible to stop reading before the final page.

  Silvia Hartmann delivers a great many examples of what we can do with the system. Thus it doesn't take a genius to become a genius ;-)  

The Genuis Symbols.
Your Portals to Creativity, Imagination & Innovation
by Silvia Hartmann

Well, the title is talking pretty big, isn't it?

And the very first chapter – or rather the introduction – titles "Welcome To YOUR Genius". It could seem a somewhat presumptuous claim to "have a sound theory which powers a set of strategies to ... get a person, ANY PERSON who sincerely wants, to contact their 'genius within' and create their own genius solutions to their problems and contributions." So let's take a closer look.

Would we consider Einstein, DaVinci, Céculé, Goethe, Poincaré, Edison, and many of the Nobel prize laureates geniuses? I have little doubt that most people would agree. Now, what MAKES them geniuses? Is it logic and a special knack for calculations? Hardly – or our computers that are really great at... Read Full Review

The Genius Symbols is not just a book, it is an extraordinary work of monumental proportions and importance.

I have been an avid oracle collector all my life, a dowser, there is nothing I will not use to gain access to my inner knowing so I feel perfectly qualified to say there is nothing like The Genius Symbols, anywhere. If you think you’ve seen it all before, you are wrong. Trust me on that.

This is a true paradigm shift in the field of realizing human potential.

At last a two way communication between the conscious and unconscious mind, an alignment that results in a life with more joy. It’s as simple as that.

I had often heard the expression, “Life is a game”. The only problem I was still having was manifesting what I saw into reality. The Genius Symbols have solved that problem! Once I had read this book and played a couple of classic games, I was off and running.

The symbols have become my own personal runes. The game is so adaptable. I don’t care what techniques you are using to create your own reality; this game seems to complete the circle.

The symbols remind me of the rules of life and give me instant focus on how to solve a problem.

Very useful, very valuable indeed.

  It was not just a fantastic journey. Project Sanctuary is the most holistic, creative and practical experience one can have.  

Project Sanctuary Distance Learning Course: July 2007 to October 1st 2007.

It was truly a privilege to be part of this course.

I have dreamed for years of doing a course that would be holistic and where I could go and accomplish whatever I needed to do.
Well this was it.

From the very first lesson I felt as if my creativity had been set free. I had done EMO Energy-in-Motion and Project Sanctuary work before, but I could not have imagined how good the course would be or that I would be taken on journeys within myself that I could never have imagined. It began with creating a Sanctuary and journeying from there with whatever I wished to be involved in.

I was taught the power of metaphor and how to explore the myths and images that underlie our lives and our relationships. This was simply wonderful and opened up door after door into my past journey,... Read Full Review

  Having just completed the first Distance Learning Course with Silvia Hartmann I can say it is one of the best experiences of my life to date.  

Project Sanctuary for me is magic of the best kind. I have always been attracted to the word Sanctuary as a place where I can be free and safe and where I can lie in the sun and do nothing if I want. So I was very excited to hear I could be part of the first Distance Learning Course with Silvia Hartmann.

I knew already what a ‘magic’ lady Silvia is. She has the ability to help us discover the wonders hidden deep in the world around us. She can take a stone in the road and enable us to see worlds we would never normally think of entering.

From the very first unit of the course I was delighted and knew that I could be totally who I am. I could bring my life and my experiences into Sanctuary and be free to be and create and heal and find whatever it is I want to create here. Through each unit I was brought to a new place within myself. I began to see the power of allowing my mind and heart the freedom to... Read Full Review

  I have finally found something that will never bore me, will never end, as there are always new worlds to explore which I know nothing about as yet ...  

A short retrospective of the Project Sanctuary Masters course:

- It was the best thing I've ever done!!!

- I have resolved a great many deep rooted problems and blockages, and most of the time, with fun and joy.

- I have received an enormous lift in my creativity and I am bursting with ideas which now want to be realised and unfolded.

- I have finally found something that will never bore me, will never end, as there are always new worlds to explore which I know nothing about as yet ...

- I can use Project Sanctuary with my clients, play for myself to make me feel well, I can use it for my creative sides. (I have already written a poem and a story in Sanctuary, now I also want to paint there and create music for the poem, and of course, write my book ...)

  Reading it I could see the dragons of my youth soaring across the night sky, angels playing and dancing on my bed, being a famous singer.  

Golden Horses is a combination of adult fairy tales, child rearing manual, and a thought provoking stimulus for the brain.

The stories awoke childhood dreams that had been laid to rest and forgotten. Buried deep and not thought of once adult responsibilities took away the time for playing, this book took me back in time when anything was possible.

Reading it I could see the dragons of my youth soaring across the night sky, angels playing and dancing on my bed, being a famous singer.

The stories reminded me that a child's imagination needs to be nurtured and this book helps you do that.

The stories are short enough to be read at bedtime with time left to draw pictures, create a sequel, or talk about what the child related to.

I enjoyed this book and look forward to the time when I can share it with my grandchildren.

  I have changed in ways I would never had thought possible in such a short period of time.  

I bought Project Sanctuary about a year ago and when I look back, it seems as if 10 years have gone by. Why? Simply because since reading it, I have changed in ways I would never had thought possible in such a short period of time.

If you think Project Sanctuary is one more tree in the jungle of all self-help books, you will be surprised. Project Sanctuary is a manual that will help you to connect with what Silvia Hartmann calls the Energy Mind - or your subconscious mind. Forget guided imagery, where someone tells you to imagine lying on a sandy beach or sitting cross-legged on a mountain peak. Who's to tell you what you prefer, anyway? In your Sanctuary, you are the one in charge of your own scenario. And from there, you go on fascinating adventures of self-discovery that lead you from surprise to surprise and above all, to an ever deepening realisation of who you are.

Have a very happy birthday...

We have never met, but I would like to say a big thank you for all your hard work in writing books and courses that has added to energy therapy knowledge, I love your insightful books on EFT, EMO Energy-in-Motion and the unique project sanctuary book which is simply incredible and a joy to use.

At the moment I am doing your GoE practitioners course via distance learning with a view to finally becoming a fully paid up member. I've been an EFT adv practitioner for three years now and have been really amazed by the results, so I thought it's about time I got around to joining.

  The details of how others have used their sanctuaries, very inspiring. Thank you so much for a brilliant and inspiring "experience" that is more than just a book!  

I have no idea if you expect your book to work the way it worked for me so I will write it down here, and you can either skip through it nodding sagely or read the detail.

So I read your book and followed the instructions as I went (except the bit about saying "sanctuary" out loud). I spent a few minutes creating a little sanctuary then continued to read. By the way I always read as much as possible before I fall asleep (I have a full time job and a 10mth old son so this is not a big window!). Anyway as I continued to read I discovered that I was experiencing a very strange sensation, it felt like falling asleep my eyes would close but I was not actually asleep.

It was like being hypnotized and slipping straight into a scene in which you are very busy doing things, for example arranging house, garden etc. I would then "wake up" again and read a little further then slip into the other... Read Full Review

On a private note and what you wrote about Romantic Love:

"Frankly, I don't give a damn about either enlightenment or scientific respectability. I've been there, know what it's like first hand, and when someone sits on my couch suffering from the side effects of this kind of major head-, heart-, mind-, and soul trip, I know that they're not deluding themselves - this is as real as it can get.

  It feels like I’m finally getting back in touch with my child self and the magic she believed in.  

What was it like reading it for the first time?

Deep resonance. The feeling that this is what I have been looking for for a long time.

How have you used the Project Sanctuary approaches so far?

I am pretty new to it. I have been working on getting it cleaned up. It is now a place where I go to and feel good energetically. There are times I go there and feel so good it makes me cry. I still have a lot of exploring and creating to do.

What are the most important learnings you have derived from doing Project Sanctuary?

I am finally, finally, finally learning to communicate with my body and subconscious self. I approach it as an exploring what is there and then working on it until it feels right.

Do you have a favourite PS story you would like to share?

I have two complete manuals written by Silvia: Adventures in EFT and Project Sanctuary. I bought them about 3 years ago.
What I love most about them is that I can read them again and again. Every new read leads to something else resonating.

There are other manual type books that I have read once or maybe even twice, but the two by Silvia I have read many times. I do not grow tired of them. There are these little stories in them of other people's experiences and they have such a powerful effect on me. I may find them fascinating in their own right or I may find elements in them that I want to try or that make me think of something I could do in my sanctuary or tap for.

The power of Silvia's writing, in my opinion, is that it activates your own ideas.

"Project Sanctuary" is a piece of work in which every therapist of every
persuasion ought to be vitally interested. It provides an unprecedented
opportunity to communicate with one's unconscious mind through the generation of
symbol and metaphor, thus having rapid, ecological effect on the "real" world.
Best of all, it offers work which every client seems to actually want to do!
"Project Sanctuary" is a piece of work every NLPer should rush to buy. If

  Silvia has translated the presuppositions and change patterns of NLP into clear, meaningful language, primarily through her wonderful use of language and metaphors.  

I read this book while wearing two hats: that of a piritually-oriented lay person, and that of a hypnotherapist and NLP Master Practitioner. Silvia Hartmann has done a masterful job of weaving together concepts and processes that satisfied both of these parts of me. Through the use of metaphors, parts integration, submodality shifts, and hypnotic language patterns, Dr. Hartmann has used a light-hearted approach in blending together some very important healing concepts and tools.
One commonly heard complaint about mainstream Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) texts is the often confusing and truncated language of the field.

  In my opinion, this is "must read" for any psychologist and personal development practitioner.  

The more I read Silvia Hartmann's incredible book "Project Sanctuary", the more possibilities I see.

This work exhibits not only an incredibly deep knowledge and appreciation of the nature and power of metaphor, but also amazing creativity.

As far as I can see, working with metaphor in the way she suggest is ten times more powerful than standard metaphorical applications because it makes the unconscious itself into the creator or builder.

It's also more fun and a whole lot more gentle and respectful.

In my opinion, this is "must read" for any psychologist and personal development practitioner.

It is a great trance inducer, in a very natural way, and I find my clients getting some surprising personal revelations from their own "visions" and the meanings they ascribe.

In this project Silvia has taken the best of the very best from a wide range of healing modalities and blended them into a unique whole. And, as with all quality blendings, such as the finest Scotch Whiskies, the final product is infinitely more than simply the sum of its parts.

What makes this work even more valuable than that however, turning it into a "must have" book, is that its simple, conversational, presentation makes it easily accessible to the beginner, yet offers a unique and powerful tool for all healing professionals

  This is not an experience I have had before with any book to this degree; I can only conclude that your use of the processes of languaging is nothing short of masterful.  

I must confess to having heaved a heavy sigh prior to opening the document. As a neurolinguist, I find much of the New Age writings lacking in content and structure.

From the start, your use of language amazed me. I was determined to track the structures, state chains, post hypnotic suggestions and loops, but in spite of my best efforts, I kept being "sucked in" by the content and found myself drifting off right into wherever you wanted me to be at the time.

This is not an experience I have had before with any book to this degree; I can only conclude that your use of the processes of languaging is nothing short of masterful.

As to the process itself, it is very interesting and rests on some very intriguing pre-suppositions.

Although I don't agree with all of them, it makes for a mind expanding
experience. I have tried the process for myself,... Read Full Review

  Project Sanctuary is a real tool, for real work, for real movement and change.  

Dear Silvia,

I thoroughly enjoyed reading your Project Sanctuary.

I found your style very personal and warm which would engage the reader in the process with some sense of human connection and support. This would allow entrance into the process to be less fearful. The constant implication and statement of safety and personal power are important aspects, in my opinion, which encourage the use of this tool
for personal growth.

The use of many and various case examples would give each reader multiple chances to meet aspects of self which could benefit from using the Global Metaphor Therapy as a personal tool, not just another mental construct with which to play intellectual; a real tool, for real work, for real movement and change.

Walk in Peace,

  This is a must reading for all those who are serious in making change in their life. I, for one, am definitely going to incorporate these principles in my own life and my professional work.  

First let me say that it was a pleasure to read "Project Sanctuary"... very complete in covering the subject matter.

I found the book to be easy reading and written in a very practical tone. I can quite easily relate (both from having personally being there as well as professionally in dealing with clients and co-workers in the field) to how people tend to mess themselves us and are forever looking for problems or believing that their problems can never be solved.

I believe that the book reflects the desire and fulfills the need of
contemporary people who are sick and tired of being sick and tired trying to solve their apparently "unsolvable" problems - or as you say, those who are "running after their problems" all the time. The law of energy is that whatever you put your attention, your energy will follow into it - thus more problems.

  An ingenious system - not like the usual read at all. It was more like listening to someone sharing exciting discoveries. Delightfully evocative!  

My reaction to the book is very positive. As I read it I had the uncanny sense that you were present as I read and that you were TALKING to ME personally.

It didn't seem like the usual read at all, it was more like listening to someone sharing with me some exciting discoveries. Someone with a sense of humor who is able to empathically anticipate reader's reactions and can respond to these reactions reassuringly.

Still the approach you have developed, while it is stunning in its creative depth and comprehensiveness, may not be the most suitable for all clients "...no matter what the problem...no matter what the circumstances..." I don't believe we can ever be "...ENTIRELY familiar with the underlying structure..." (emphasis mine).

  Thank you so much for a brilliant book, just this one experience has made it more than worth buying it...  

I have started reading your material and am absolutely intrigued. The
"sanctuary" was quite an enlightenment and I found my mother as one of my guides which was a lovely thing. (It has only been a 1-1/2 since her transition and I have missed her and her love and reassurance a great deal. For some reason I have not experienced her presence like I did when my father passed over.) While I have heard and used the "safe place" technique before, I believe this is far more respectful, hopeful and helpful and comprehensive.

Thank you so much for a brilliant book, just this one experience has made it more than worth buying it,

  I've worked with metaphor a lot, but have never had so much fun with it as I can now see the potential for.  

I've received Project Sanctuary this morning and I've probably read about 1/5.

I am enjoying it immensely. Actually finding it hard to put down. Your style is just great -- quirky, biting, good information packed in an interesting way.

I've worked with metaphor a lot, but have never had so much fun with it as I can now see the potential for. Also, I'd been introduced to sanctuary work and thought it was boring. Boy did I have the wrong teacher all those years ago.

Wish I'd known you then! I actually feel excited about really getting into this now that I begin to see the potential.

  It should definitely come with a warning that Project Sanctuary can produce intense responses and profound change.  

I have just finished your book and I could not wait to tell you how truly magical it was, I have done more inner work with your book in the last few weeks than I have done in the last 6mths. It should definitely come with a warning that it can produce intense responses and profound change.

Anyway you have produce something really wonderful (this statement I feel is a massive understatement so multiply it by 10000 and you will get close to how I feel).

Dear Silvia Hartmann,

Thank-you very much :-) for sending Project Sanctuary so quickly.

I've started to read and I can only say that it's so nice to see I'm not alone in all my opinions and I like the theory upon which the book seems to be written. It deals with the point of now, the point of reality. AND - bonus point for me- it's not dealing with words but images that are easy. I love the way you point out the obvious which - after having seen a counselor I would never choose to see again...-obviously isn't all that obvious to some, the brain is the most multi-faceted, 'flexible' wizard of all time when it comes to working in images and suggestible. Well at least mine is. I think for me in any case, a lot of my problem is that it is too easy for me to create images but I'm also very suggestible and having been surrounded often enough by things I would class as negative, my images seem to be fear...

... I love your metaphors, your use of examples and stories, and your
common-sense-let's-make-it-fun-and-easy approach. I tried some of the process
and liked it, felt I learned something that I didn't know about me, and
something that was important for me to know about me.
I especially liked how you were there with me in the process. I can imagine
people having "sanctuary parties" where they get together for several hours and
create, support, and share.

I appreciate the effort that went into this creation, and I would feel delighted
sharing this with others, either in part, or in its entirety.

Project Sanctuary - A book that really moooovved me to some places I didn't
know I needed to go
When I was sent this book to review, I had no idea how powerful it was. As
I read it I found myself lucid dreaming and in the process discovered things
about myself that delighted and astounded me.
This book was written to provide a tool for individuals and therapists to
address issues, in a lasting, coherent, holistic way within a framework that is
uniquely tailored to the individual.
This is what I gathered from reading the introduction anyway. I was expecting
to read a series of narratives that would provide, visualizations for dealing
with my issues in a very personal way.
So imagine my surprise when I discovered, it’s not just a book - it is an
experience.

some of them I am proud of and others I'm not so proud of. I am quite old now -

As I look back over my life, certain things

much I love and enjoy your wonderful Project Sanctuary. I am 82 years of age and
still see a few clients (I am a Jungian Analyst by training). I have been
fascinated by stories and imagination ever since I was a little girl, and every
page in your book was like a homecoming to me.
 
I am a little sad that I had to wait this long to
finally see expressed what I have felt in my heart for these many years but I am
still overjoyed to have "met" such a kindred spirit.
