What is the Art of Memory?

Ancient Techniques

2,500 years ago, a Greek poet named Simonides invented the memory palace to remember and recall vast amounts of information. New techniques were developed over the centuries and they were widely used throughout the ancient, medieval and renaissance periods.

Together, they are known as the Art of Memory.

These powerful techniques allow people with average memories to do amazing feats, like memorizing the order of a shuffled deck of cards in less than 20 seconds and recalling tens of thousands of digits of pi.

And the best part is that anyone can learn them!
