Andy,

Did not get the opportunity to try it out.

I am itching to do some tree readings. My wife and I did a two person mindreading act the other night, and if there was time, I was going to do some tree readings. However, after the show, there just was not the time.

Oh well - something for another day Bobby. I had a lovely opportunity last weekend - an alumni event which saw pupils from the school where I teach returning for a county fair where we had a stand to market the educational opportunities offered by our institution. I did back to back tree readings for the best part of 5 hours! I did a nice impromptu sneak thief using school compliment slips at one point with a drawing duplication for the last doodle. Later on I used Chris Rawlin's 'Reveal' to good effect - they drew anything they liked and this was sealed in a padded envelope 'unseen' and then I had them doodle me a tree and print underneath it a fancy dress costume they last wore to a party. I then used the doodle and name (Jack Sparrow) to deduce the likely target image - I had a near miss with a sundial - they had drawn a sand timer! Amazing what you can learn from a tree doodle!

Hope you get a chance to scratch the doodling itch soon mate Smile

Andy has produced a excellent piece of useful literature hear. I have been performing "tree" readings for years (as a part of one of my routines and as a stand-alone). This is a fully flesh-out guide that I appreciate. Highly recommended for those looking to include any readings based upon projective (tree) drawings. Thank you for making this available. A steal of a price.

Best Regards,

Sean

Andy,

I appreciate you leading me down this path. I have started forcing myself to do tree readings. I will tell my friends, family and acquaintances I am learning something new, and they are going to be my guinea pigs. I tell them to draw a tree and sign their names, not to worry, no way to mess it up.

I have been amazed at how much people have identified with what I was saying. Because of your book, I also got a copy of Ethel's book and Rudy's DVD. The three of you combined cover all bases, and it has been an absolute joy reading your book and learning how to do tree readings.

I really like how you treat the knotholes. Some have suggested it represents a traumatic event. I feel uncomfortable with that. However, my wife was doing a tree reading and when she saw the knothole, she said, "This suggests you had some kind of significant event in your life." I liked it, and I liked how you handled it, too.

Rudy advises when starting just give a 30-second reading. What I have discovered is that when I read your book or watch the DVD, I feel as if I can take on the world. Then, I get out there, and the tree is something I wasn't expecting. I follow the foundational principles you teach, and the readings end up making sense. Even though everyone has told me my reading have been "right on," I always feel I need to go study more after doing tree readings.

Thanks again,

Bobby

I think that is very common with new readers of any type. You seem to remember all of the traits and meanings while reviewing them but once in the heat of the situation, handling the crowd and their questions, and trying to both be organized and doing the readings there are many other elements that come into play that are all happening simulataneously.

What seems to happen is it gets better the more you do it, and then magically one day it all eventually seems to become second nature.

Mindpro,

Can you use your magic and make it magically happen today?!

I can't tell you how much I am enjoying this. I always struggled with doing Q&A or any other kind of reading, just did not feel right with me. However, this tree reading stuff is something I feel very comfortable with because it deals with the personality and not anything mystical.

Hi Bobby

I am not sure quite how I missed your comment above but I really appreciate your sentiments and I am delighted that you are getting so much out of the readings. I suspect from what I know of you so far, it is working so well for you because you are open, trusting the system and then refining the foundation with your own intuitions which seems to be the recipe for success in any interpretative discipline.

I am booked on a DISC course next month which is based on the Myers Briggs system of personality profiling to support team building and leadership training in the corporate sector. I believe this has a lot of potential when combined with the tree doodle model. Just like you I want to keep learning, stretching myself and use what I am discovering to help people to understand themselves and one another better - it's a great privilege to do this sort of thing isn't it? I do hope the passion you feel burns bright and long my friend Smile

Hi Andy
I am quite fascinated by all this and was wondering how I can get your book as an ebook. I don't recall you mentioning it in this thread.

Andy has produces a very good book.
I do tree reading for many years ( I learned it with Rudy's dvd)
Andy's approach is very didactic and playful.
I'm also glad it's a physical book and not an ebook, little bit tired of ebook:-)

Thanks Parmenion - I appreciate your comments. Harryhaywire, I do have an e version of the book for those who prefer to read digitally and if you PM me or contact me via http://www.doodlemeatree.com I will arrange to get a copy to you.

Being an English teacher, I also favour the printed text but understand that there is a real shift in reading preference so I hope I have made a reasonable compromise!

I just finished Andy's book and I have to agree with all of the positive comments made about it thus far. It's well researched and very thorough in its descriptions of many of the possible iterations of trees and signatures. Of course he couldn't go through them all, but he does do a fantastic job of laying the groundwork. He even encourages the reader to go out and do their own research on Graphology and Dendrographology in order to gain an even deeper understanding of the possibilities involved. Most importantly for myself is that the book is concise and easy to understand. Another plus was that Andy infused his personality into the whole thing making a unique book even that much more special. I use this in conjunction with Rudy Hunter's Draw Me A Tree. Together, I can't imagine a more complete and easy to understand overview of the methodologies involved in tree reading. Highly recommended!

Oh! I also wanted to add this link to a related photography project involving individuals drawing trees which they feel have special meaning to them: http://goo.gl/3rR0Wb . Some of the trees match up to an eerily precise degree! Who knows, maybe someone can figure out how to effectively reference this project in their Doodle presentation. Good luck!

Very interesting concept!

@AndyFisher -
I also have a question regarding word choice. At the end of the book, when you give your readings, you often choose the phrase 'this means', as though what you are telling them is a definite, sure-fire thing. At the same time however you seem to be very cognizant of your word choices, using 'doodle' instead of 'draw', and avoiding the word 'answers' and instead opting for 'my readings'.

I guess I'm just wondering then, under what pretense do you present your readings and is this deliberate word choice part of that presentation? Speaking in such certain terms about something as uncertain as tree reading suggests to me a bit of the mystical; some sort of power or vision. If not, why not instead always opt for more accurate phrases like "this might suggest", or "this could indicate"? Or do you find that speaking in such resolute phrases simply adds to the impact? I guess I just feel that speaking in more vague terms would allow for a decent amount of wiggle room for those times when certain portions of someones reading does not apply to them. Thanks in advance!

Just picked this up. Great. 200 pages of intense aspects of a tree and how to interpret. Very thorough. Want to pick up the printed book as well.

Definitely well and reasonably priced.

I highly recommend this.
