Reviews on Ahsen’s Work

“Eidetic imagery enabled me to pinpoint the sources of my character, its strengths and weaknesses, thereby helping me to understand how and why I have succeeded in business. It enabled me to identify specific capabilities and, in so doing, made me even more focused and productive. I believe Eidetic Imagery can be a useful tool for anyone interested in maximizing his or her business potential as well as personal development.”

WILLIAM SIMON, former Secretary of the United States Treasury

 

“Within half an hour Akhter Ahsen cured my daughter-in-law from asthma.”

SIR FIROZ KHAN NOON, K.C.S.I., Former Prime Minister of Pakistan

 

“Inspiring human consciousness in a new way.”

DR. KARAN SINGH, Former Ambassador to the United States Member, Parliament of India

 

“Ahsen’s approach is both powerful and practical. It works. It places within the hands of trained practitioners a simple, but stunningly effective pedagogy for helping persons struggling with autism. Images are used to evoke emotional contact. A structured and inherently creative—protocol elicits, welcomes, confirms and nurtures an unfolding world of connected feelings. In my experience, the transformations are profound, cumulative and appear permanent.”

DR. WILLIAM F. VENDELEY, Secretary General Religions for Peace, United Nations

 

“By distracting the surface mind and using imagery it allows us to re-enter past experiences, and understand unexamined emotions. It gives us a map for inner traveling.”

GLORIA STEINEM

 

“These images are like finding pockets of gold in the psyche. This is a whole new and deeply relevant approach to ‘real’ mental and emotional health.”

ROBIN MORGAN, Editor, Ms. Magazine

 

“This eidetic work helped me to get a grip on the times that I feel down, confused, or ineffectual in my relationships. I was able to use certain images that not only explained why I was feeling the way I was, but also helped me get past them to do what I wanted and needed to do. Also, the eidetic tools have been invaluable to harness my creative energies at work.”

STEPHANIE VON HIRSCHBERG, Editor, New Woman Magazine

 

“I have found that these images effectively and permanently free blocked energy that allows people to get on successfully with their lives.”

CAROL JENKINS, Fox Five, News Anchor

 

“A wonderful approach to a therapeutic journey through complicated areas. Akhter Ahsen has made it possible for everyone. I congratulate him over its worldwide acceptance.”

DR. MOHAMMED AJMAL, Principal, Government College, Pakistan Secretary of Education, Pakistan

 

“I should think that Dr. Ahsen’s stance has a superior function in the therapeutic work especially in the psychoanalytic areas.”

HARRY SLOCHOWER, Editor, American Imago

 

“It is one of the most significant developments yet to emerge in psychotherapy since Freud’s psychoanalysis.”

THE GLASGOW JOURNAL OF PSYCHOLOGY

 

“This goes a step beyond Jung.”

ELIZABETH KUBLER ROSS, Author, On Death and Dying

 

“The work has the quality of revelation and should be read by all.”

JOSEPH CAMPBELL

 

“Ahsen’s whole mythology is an early set of motivational principles, wherein he treats the subject matter of desire and mercy in the most engaging manner. There is a whole new angle here for looking at things.”

KENNETH BURKE, Literary Critic

 

“With a discerning eye for the subtleties of human experience and masterful comprehension of the far-reaching power of myth to influence our lives, Ahsen has… transcended the Oedipal Project, revealing the sibling bond as including the broadest level of conscious possibilities.”

MICHAEL D. KAHN, Co-author, The Sibling Bond

 

“Ahsen has made a valuable contribution to the area of Greek Mythology and the legend of Oedipus.”

PETER MCKELLAR, Past President, New Zealand Psychological Society

 

“A very original and very promising approach.”

ZEITSCHRIFT FUR PSYCHOLOGIE

 

“It is possible that what Ahsen has achieved is a new means of communication, more subtle than verbalization of facts and associative thinking.”

BEHAVIOR THERAPY

 

“Anyone interested in visualization should find it valuable.”

BRAIN/MIND BULLETIN

 

“[His work] constitutes a unique and important contribution to the scientific study of healing with imagery… by far the best of its kind.

NEW AGE

 

“The use of imagery for the study and improvement of the human condition has been stimulated recently by the prolific writings of Akhter Ahsen.”

JOURNAL OF PERSONALITY ASSESSMENT

 

“In his work he has … reunited body and soul and given us an approach which enables the patient to cut through the mind/body problem and deal with the essential unity which is himself as a human being.”

INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF CLINICAL AND EXPERIMENTAL HYPNOSIS

 

“What Dr. Ahsen appears to be emphasizing is that spontaneous and potential psychical visual experiences (eidetic images) can be linked to emotional and psycho-physiological states. . . to relieve anxiety and conflicts and understand patterns of behavior in self and others … this is pioneering work.”

INDIAN JOURNAL OF PSYCHIATRY

 

“Ahsen has done and is doing something very significant… and for his profound scholarship he deserves our whole-hearted applause.”

MANAB MON, Journal of The Pavlov Institute

 

“Ahsen’s work is important both because of the brilliance and originality of the imaging structure he presents and because of his understanding of the connection between imagery and our deeper spirituality.”

COMMON BOUNDARY

 

“Ahsen’s contribution may be to re-establish the importance of imagery in the thought processes to those who can no longer be satisfied with ‘limited goals’ or even limited concepts of man. . . this. . . may be a turning point.”

RALPH A. LUCE, M.D.

 

“Ahsen’s eidetic psychotherapy is a major innovation in the traditions of psychotherapy that is as neurologically informed as it is humanistically and holistically conceived.”

SOMATICS

 

“The principles of this approach rely on bright visual images and the feeling of ‘reality’ they project inside the mind so that inner and outer realities are bound together in the body of a single operation… (one becomes aware) of the fascination inherent in imagery, the tricks it can play with consciousness, and the benefits that may lie in its understanding and use.”

ERNEST R. HILGARD, Ph.D., Author, Conditioning and Learning

 

“An exciting and ingenious way of getting at conflict areas.”

CONTEMPORARY PSYCHOLOGY

 

“Unmatched in the clinical literature … a methodological advance.”

THE AMERICAN JOURNAL OF PSYCHIATRY

 

“Our own view backs up Ahsen’s assertion that imagery affords a solid medium for diagnostic and therapeutic efforts.”

JOURNAL OF LEARNING DISABILITIES

 

“For parents, using eidetic images instantly reveals to them—as no other method I know can—what their child is experiencing and how their children are relating to their world. It enables them to know their child in a way that they could not before. It brings fresh insight and new understanding.”

MARC UNGAR, President National Attention Deficit Disorder Action Group

 

“Explains how the balance causes all these kinds of contradictory feelings because anything depends on the balance one maintains. You have to start to reach for what you were defying.”

YUL BRYNNER, Actor

 

“. . Naturally, I wish you every possible success.”
