"With this revolutionary book, Ranck and Nutter offer up a profound tool for anyone feeling stuck in life or art. It is impossible to open IGNITE THE GENIUS WITHIN without experiencing a seismic shift in how you are thinking, feeling, and ultimately, creating. Grab headphones, flip to a page, and prepare to grow beyond where you even thought possible."
Emma McLaughlin, co-author, The Nanny Diaries
"You don't so much read this book as experience it, feel it drawing you in, lifting you up, and shifting you quite concretely into a deeper connection to your personal strength and creativity. Prepare to be surprised by this book's power--and your own!"
Sarah Jones, Tony Award winning playwright and performer, Bridge & Tunnel
Never one to be able to meditate, the most surprising thing happened to me when I sat down with this book and soundtrack. I was actually able to quiet my mind enough to focus on one thing at a time. This book is completely unique and quite a great experience.
Debra Jo Rupp, actress, That 70s Show
IGNITE THE GENIUS WITHIN triggers an amazing journey into the world of artistic creation. As an actor, EMDR has been a wonderful tool in exploring character, and emotional development. It has enabled me to delve deeper into the psyche of a character after all other avenues have been exhausted. This book provides a multitude of exercises that "peel the onion" of our subconscious in a manner that we can apply to our work as well as our day to day lives.
