Master your mind and create the life you desire
In this 12-week online course on the mind and meditation.
A Simple, Practical Meditation Course
Tools, techniques and teachings to unlock your greatest potential
If you are reading this then you are alive. You have a life. You’ve been given one. Just one. But with no instruction manual. You’ve also been given a mind – the most sophisticated tool on this planet and this too with no instruction manual. And all of us who have been given a life and a mind are expected to figure out what to do with both in this finite time that we are here on this planet. It’s a great burden that has been placed upon us and many of us struggle through life when we don’t really have to. After all, life is meant to be lived joyously.
In this course, I outline some of the very basic training I received from my guru when I lived in his monastery as a monk. Tool, techniques and teachings that have been developed by Hindu monks for over two thousand years in India and Sri Lanka to help a person discover purpose and live a joyous life. These monks knew that one has to first begin by understanding the mind, and then develop concentration and willpower. Once you have a good grasp over the mind you can begin to go within you to discover your greatest potential through the practice of meditation.
The meditation that was taught to me is simple, practical, systematic and highly effective. It helps you define your meditation goal, lay out a path to it and create a sustainable practice that eventually brings forth insights and spiritual unfoldment. It teaches you to concentrate your energy towards manifesting what you want in life and directing it as well to those that truly matter to you to create fulfilling relationships. Ultimately, what most people want is to be loved, to have a purpose and to be able to love. Meditation is the tool to unlock your greatest potential. The rewards are far greater than the efforts put into it and it is well worth striving for. Begin your journey of self-discovery today!
