It’s all about awareness…
What would it be like to have significantly more choice about how you feel in each moment? What if you had more control over your behavior, or more choice about the people and situations you seem to attract into your life, or become attracted to? Wouldn’t more choice and control in these areas significantly change your experience of life?
I’ve been helping people with their personal and spiritual growth for over 30 years now, and I’ve noticed that these three areas—how you feel, how you behave, what people and situations you attract or become attracted to, and what meanings you assign to the people, things, and events in your life–make up most of our experience of life.
Most people assume that their feelings “just happen,” that feelings come and go without much if any choice on our part. For that reason, most people assume that there’s little that can be done about their moment by moment feelings. Have you ever lost your temper, despite the negative consequences, or found yourself feeling sad or depressed without being able to get yourself out of it?
As I’ll explain in a moment, you actually can exercise a great deal of choice over how you feel. There’s no reason why you need to feel bad for more than a few moments, but exercising this choice involves becoming more aware of exactly how you’re creating the way you feel in each moment. Meditation have proven to be one of the most effective ways of increasing awareness and Holosync meditation increases awareness at least four times faster than traditional mediation. Either way, it’s through increasing your awareness that you can take charge of your internal experience of life–and your external results.
I also frequently hear from people who say that they know what they need to do in order to get the results they want, but they often can’t get themselves to actually take the actions they know they need to take. They attend a seminar on how to make money, where they learn a step by step formula. They go home motivated and excited, but despite their best intentions fail to put it into practice. Or, they learn about relationship communication skills, but when the chips are down and they really need to use those skills, for some reason they don’t use them.
Why does this happen? Why are we sometimes unable to be in charge of how we behave? I want to explore this question, too. And, as you’ll see, once again the key to success is increasing your conscious awareness.
Let me ask you something else. Are there areas of life where you seem to get the same negative result over and over, no matter how hard you try? I used to get involved with the same woman, but each time in a different body, over and over. Then I’d experience the same relationship issues and have the same fights and the same bad feelings that I’d had with the previous partner.
Somehow, out of all the available women in the world, I managed to choose—and be chosen by—women with the same issues, which meant that each new relationship had the same problems as the old one (of course, I had my own issues). This doesn’t just happen in relationships, though. Some people make one bad investment after another, or get involved in one bad job after another, or makes the same bad decision over and over.
If you have a recurring problem in any area of life—making money, attracting friends, getting people to respect you, creating fulfilling relationships, finding work you enjoy, staying healthy, or if anything else you don’t like seems to happen over and over—there’s a reason why this happens. Most people, without knowing how and why, repeatedly attract certain situations and people, which causes them to experience similar results, again and again. As with feelings and behaviors, awareness is, once again, the key to discovering why this happens and being able to exercising the choices that create new and better outcomes.
As you know if you’re using it, meditating with Holosync creates a number of positive changes. The first thing most people notice is that it feels good when you use it, and you feel pleasantly high when you’re finished. This is because when you are in deep, meditative states your brain produces a number of pleasurable neurochemicals that make you feel good. Many people also notice over the first several months that people and situations that bothered them before, that created anger or anxiety or some other emotional reaction, don’t seem to trigger them in the same way. You could say that the threshold at which they become triggered by people and situations increases.
At the same time, general feelings of well-being increase, and anger, depression, anxiety, and other dysfunctional feelings begin to diminish. Emotional health, what some psychologists call E.Q., increases. What’s more, mental clarity, creativity, problem solving ability, and other mental abilities increase because Holosync use causes the creation of new neural pathways between the left and right brain hemispheres, leading to more effective whole brain thinking (a component of awareness, by the way)
I want to add, however, that sometimes using Holosync might not feel good. Holosync pushes you to grow, and sometimes your unconscious mind may push back. In other words, you might resist on an unconscious level and, in doing so, create some uncomfortable feelings. So if your experience isn’t all “positive,” don’t worry. When it feels uncomfortable, something big is being worked through, and the benefits of doing that are huge. If you feel uncomfortable, call our support line and have a chat with one of the support coaches.
What drives the accelerated change process Holosync users experience is the increase in awareness created by Holosync. So what do I mean by “awareness”? Interestingly, this isn’t something that’s woo-woo or metaphysical, though some people like to see it that way. Let me give a few examples.
In many ways life can be seen as a step-by-step process of becoming more aware. Some people continue to become more aware throughout their entire life, while others gain a certain amount of awareness and then do something to stop the process. Those who continue to become more aware throughout life can in some cases become so aware that they’re capable of quite startling mental abilities, they gain incredible inner peace, and their perspective on life is significantly broader than that of other people. This process culminates in what some people would call spiritual enlightenment, which isn’t the sort of woo-woo thing you might think it is, and doesn’t involve any particular belief system.
This process of becoming more aware actually begins when you’re a baby, and we’ve all experienced it. Developmental psychologists tell us that a baby is having what is often described as an experience of oceanic oneness. What this really means is that the baby can’t tell the difference between me and not-me. To the baby it’s all one thing. The baby isn’t yet aware enough to notice that there is something called “me,” and then there is everything else. But at some point the baby bites its toes and it hurts, and then he bites his blanket and notices that it doesn’t hurt. In this way, the baby makes the distinction between me and not-me.
At this point the baby is a bundle of sensory experiences and motor activities, but without any awareness that it can direct these things or have control over them. But at a certain point the baby gains enough awareness of its motor responses and sensory experiences that it can intentionally look at a certain thing, or listen to a certain sound. It also learns that instead of moving randomly it can move intentionally. It can roll over, or reach out for a toy, or kick its legs, and do these things intentionally.
This demonstrates one of the key points I want you to understand, which is that awareness creates more choice and more control. You have no choice or control over that which you are unaware of. Once you become aware of something, however, you have choice over it. You can exercise some amount of control. Once the baby realizes that it can move intentionally, or intentionally direct its senses, it begins to have control over these things.
At this point the child becomes a bundle of feelings, of internal sensations. At some point, though, the child gains awareness of these feelings, and begins to name them. “I’m happy.” “I’m sad,” and so forth. This again, gives a measure of control. The same thing happens with thoughts a bit later in development. As the ability to think develops, the child is at first unaware of its thoughts. They happen, but there isn’t enough awareness for the child to say, “I’m having certain thoughts.” Once this awareness happens, however, the child is able to think intentionally, to decide to think about a certain subject. Often this happens about the time the child is ready to go to school.
We could continue to go through the various developmental signposts all the way into adulthood, but I think I’ve made my point, which is that we progressively become aware of aspects of ourselves, and of the outside world, as we grow up. As this happens, and to the degree it happens, we gain more choice and control over what we’ve become aware of. I’ve written extensively about this subject on this blog, and if you’d like to go into it more deeply, go the beginning of the blog and read my series on human development.
I started by asking you how your life would change if you had more choice about how you feel, how you behave, and the kinds of people and situations you attract or become attracted to. Now, I’ve added the key point that we have choice and control over those things we are aware of. I’ve also made the second point that Holosync increases your ability to become aware.
Before I describe in more detail exactly what I mean by awareness, there’s one other thing you need to know about this process. Sometimes when a person is making a developmental shift in which they’re becoming aware of something of which they were previously unaware, something goes wrong. Author Ken Wilber has called these junctures developmental fulcrums. We don’t have time to delve into this deeply right now, but if something goes wrong during these developmental shifts, if they aren’t made cleanly and fully, certain mental and emotional problems can happen, including neurosis, personality disorders, and even psychosis. We have trouble making these developmental shifts when some sort of trauma happens during the shift.
Perhaps we’ll explore this in a future post, but here’s the key point I want to make right now: Wherever you are in this developmental process—and I didn’t by any means describe the entire sequence of stages (again, see the series of posts on this blog about human development for the full story)—you are unaware of something. And, being unaware of it, you don’t have choice about it or control over it. If you do become aware of it, whatever it is, you begin to be able to exercise choice over it. Those aspects of your life that you don’t seem to be able to exercise choice over represent some part of yourself that you are unaware of.
As you become aware of how your feelings are created, then, you gain control and choice over those feelings. As you become aware of how your behaviors are generated, you gain choice and control over your behaviors. As you become aware of how you attract or become attracted to certain people and situations, you gain choice and control over that process.
Let me give an example to help you better understand what I mean. You may from time to time experience feelings you don’t like—sadness, anger, anxiety, depression, confusion, overwhelm, and so forth. These feelings seem to be caused by external events–or they sometimes seem to just happen, out of the blue. The truth is that while outside events often provide the trigger for the emotions we experience, what actually happens is more complicated. When a certain event happens (when we have an experience), we respond by doing certain things inside, in our mind, and it’s these internal cognitive processes that actually create our emotional responses.
If you’re like 99% of people, these processes happen almost entirely outside of your awareness. As you become aware of these processes, and begin to see how they create your moment by moment feelings, you will achieve an increased amount of choice over how you feel.
These internal cognitive events include the internal pictures we make, most of which happen outside our awareness. They also include our internal dialog, what most people would call “thinking,” much of which also takes place outside our awareness. These processes also include what we believe, what we’ve decided is important, as well as ways we have of deciding what to pay attention to and what to delete from our awareness.
The pictures you make in your head and what you say to yourself are part of a category of internal processes called internal representations. As we experience life, in order to understand and make sense of it, we represent what we see, hear, touch, taste, and smell to ourselves, inside our mind. What’s more, these internal representations directly create how you feel, so I hope you can see that if you become more aware of them, you’ll have more choice about them, which leads to more choice about how you feel.
This provides a clue to what I mean when I use the word awareness. Awareness, in this case, is your ability to observe your internal representations as they happen and to see how they directly lead to how you feel in each moment. As you use Holosync, in addition to all the other benefits of increased mental clarity and a greater sense of well-being, you’ll also gain more awareness of your internal representations.
Internal representations can be divided into two main categories: those of what you want and those of what you don’t want. In other words, when you think about (i.e., create internal representations of) some area of life, you could either picture what you want in that area, or what you want to avoid. If you’re thinking about money, you could picture having a lot of it, or how to become rich. Or, you could picture not having any, or how to avoid being poor.
This is where it begins to get interesting. When you make internal representations of what you want, several things happen. First, you generally feel good. What’s more, you tend to get ideas about how to get what you want. You also tend to notice resources that might enable you to get what you want. You’re also more likely to feel motivated to take action to get what you want. And, you’re more likely to develop the personal qualities you might need to get what you want—such things as persistence, creativity, enthusiasm, imagination, courage, and so forth.
On the other hand, when you make internal representations of what you don’t want (i.e., what you want to avoid, what you’re worried about, or what you’re afraid might happen) you feel bad. In fact, any time you have a bad feeling of any kind, you can be sure that you are making internal representations of something you don’t want. And, even though you don’t want it, your mind takes the internal representation as something to attract or create more of, and just as with internal representations of what you want, it figures out a way to make it happen.
So, here’s the way it works. You see something, hear something, touch something, and so forth. You have an experience. This experience triggers you to make certain internal representations. In fact, you make internal representations continuously, all day long. It’s your way of making sense of what happens around you. Then, as a direct result of the internal representations you make, you experience a certain internal state—you feel something. This includes emotions, such as happiness, sadness, anxiety, and so forth, and it also includes states such as motivation, courage, enthusiasm, and so on, that aren’t exactly emotions.
The way most people think it works:
External event –> Your experience of life
The way it actually works:
External event –> your internal pictures and internal dialog –> Your experience of life
So though it seems as if the external events in your life create how you feel, the truth is that there’s a hidden step between the external event and your experience of it—and this step is the internal representations you make in response to the external event. As long as you’re unaware of this step—the internal representations you make—you won’t be able to exercise choice over them and you won’t have any choice over the feelings and other internal states they generate. But once you become aware of this intervening step, and you directly see how the internal representations you make create your feelings, you will have choice, and you will gain increased control over your internal state.
You can demonstrate to yourself how making internal representations of what you want creates good feelings, and how making internal representations of what you don’t want creates bad feelings. Right now, stop and think of a situation when you were extremely happy or when something went extremely well for you. Perhaps it was a time when you got something you really wanted, or a time when you successfully did something you really wanted to do. Once you’ve thought of such a situation, go back to that time, in your memory, and step right into your body, in your imagination, and see what you saw, hear what you heard, and feel what you felt. Really get into it (you’ll have to stop reading for a moment in order to do this, so read the rest of the instructions first).
As you reexperience that situation, notice what you are feeling. That feeling is created by the internal representations (pictures and internal dialog) you’re making. Because they are of something you want, something you consider to be positive, it’s very likely that the feeling will be a good feeling. (Go ahead and do this little internal experiment now.)
Now, let’s do this same exercise with a negative event. Think of a situation where something did not go well, an unpleasant or negative event. As before, go back to that time in your memory and, in your imagination, see what you saw, hear what you heard, and feel what you felt. Again, notice what you are feeling, and notice that that feeling is connected to the internal representations you made of what you don’t want.
Now, rather than leaving you in that negative state, let’s do something to get you out of it. Ask yourself, “If this this is what I did not want, then what did I want?” Picture what you wanted in that situation. This will cause you to make internal representations of what you want, and this will quite likely create a better feeling. (Go ahead and do this little thought experiement now.)
If you really did this little mental exercise you should be able to see that when you focus on what you want, you create positive feelings, and when you focus on what you don’t want, you create negative feelings. It’s not what happens “out there” that creates how you feel so much as it’s what you do inside in response to what happens out there. The problem is that nearly all people focus (in other words, create internal representations) in response to what happens unconsciously.
I often summarize what we do at Centerpointe in a very simple way. We have a tool that increases awareness—Holosync. Then, we show those who use Holosync how to apply this additional awareness to that part of themselves that generates their experience of life (their internal processes). This creates a dramatic shift in your ability to create what your want in life–and how you experience what you get.
I hope you can see by now that if the way you generate your internal representations runs on autopilot, which it does for nearly all people, it will seem as if a lot of your life just happens to you. The solution to this is to become aware of and take charge of those internal processes, which gives you choice and control.
But why do some people seem to make a lot of internal representations of what they don’t want? In other words, why do some people focus a lot on what they are afraid of, what they are worried about, what they want to avoid? Such people, unfortunately, feel bad a lot and tend to attract or create more of what they are focusing on—what they don’t want. In fact, I’ll make a blanket statement here: if there is an area of your life that isn’t working very well, you can be sure that in that area of life you are, more often than not, focusing on—in other words, making internal representations of—what you don’t want.
If you have trouble making money, you’ll find that you are making a lot of internal representations of what you don’t want regarding money. If you have trouble making friends, you’ll find that in that area of life you’re focusing on what you don’t want–not having friends, being alone, etc. Any area of life that’s chronically problematic for you, if you look inside, you’ll find that when you think about that area of life you’re focusing on what you don’t want. Those who focus on what they want in a given area of life tend to be successful in that area of life, all other things being equal. Those who focus on what they don’t want in a certain area of life have trouble.
Again, the big problem is that almost all people focus unconsciously, outside their awareness.
So why would someone chronically focus on what he or she doesn’t want? If, during your childhood, you are traumatized in some way, you will develop an underlying belief that the world is a dangerous place, or at least a potentially dangerous place. To avoid that danger, then, it makes sense that you would want to watch out for it. But to watch out for danger (whatever the anticipated danger is, whether it’s mental, emotional, or physical) you have to focus on it. In other words, you have to make internal representations of what you don’t want. This causes two outcomes. It creates bad feelings, and it also tells your mind to figure out a way to create or attract MORE of it.
Let me introduce another basic principle. You can create negative feelings and negative outcomes ONLY if you do so unconsciously. If you focus on what you don’t want with awareness, however, and clearly see exactly how you’re creating bad feelings and negative outcomes, you won’t be able to keep doing it.
To create negative outcomes, then, whether internal or external, the internal representations that create them have to happen outside your awareness. In other words, you have to fail to notice that additional internal second step. Once you become aware of what you’re doing–once you actually see the internal representations you’ve been (unconsciously) making, and see the direct connection between these internal representations and what happens in your life–you’ll stop making them. As I said earlier, awareness gives you choice, and no one with a choice would choose to create bad feelings or negative outcomes (there is one exception to this, which I will address in a future post).
For many years I’ve written about the fact that each person has an emotional threshold for what they can handle. When you’re under your threshold you feel pretty good. It feels as if your life is under control. But if events push you over your threshold, you begin to feel bad, overwhelmed, anxious. It starts to feel as if life is out of control.
Here is a key point for you to consider. Your experiences, and certainly your response to your experiences, don’t “just happen” to you. Your experiences—how you feel in each moment, how you behave, and the people and situations you attract or become attracted to—are something you DO. Right now that “doing,” if you’re like 99% of people, happens unconsciously. What you do inside, in that second step—generates your internal and your external response to everything that happens.
So, knowing this, if I feel overwhelmed, if I feel like I’m over my threshold, I start thinking, “Okay, how am I DOING feeling overwhelmed?” The feeling of overwhelm doesn’t “just happen”—there’s something I DO that creates it. I DO feeling overwhelmed by focusing, in some way, on what I don’t want. Once I see how I’m doing it, I just can’t keep doing it to myself, and the internal representations of what I don’t want fall away and are replaced with internal representations of what I want.
So when you are under your threshold, you’re feeling pretty good, because you’re focusing on what you want for the most part. When you reach your threshold for what you can handle, you begin to focus on what you don’t want, what you’re worried about, what you’re afraid of, what you want to avoid. So your threshold is the point where you begin to focus on what you don’t want.
You may have noticed that some people have high thresholds, while others have lower thresholds. If you have a low threshold, the events of life are much more likely to push you over it, and you’ll feel bad more often. You’ll be more reactive to life. You’ll more easily lose your equanimity, your emotional balance. You also can’t think effectively and clearly when over your threshold, so you’re more likely to make bad decisions or have trouble dealing with challenging situations. On the other hand, if your threshold is high, it will take more to push you over it. You’ll remain content and centered in situations where others with lower thresholds may become upset. And your ability to think clearly and deal with challenging situations will be better.
So why would a person have a low threshold? If a person is traumatized, usually during childhood, his or her threshold will not mature properly. Such a person is often left with a lower threshold, and is much more likely to be triggered into bad feelings by the events of everyday life. They might more easily become sad, angry, anxious, confused, overwhelmed, or depressed, for instance. The greater the trauma, the lower the threshold.
If your threshold is low, however, all is not lost. Holosync use pushes your threshold higher. In other words, it increases how much you can deal with before you start focusing on what you don’t want. And, Holosync raises your threshold by creating more conscious awareness. On a neurophysiological level, it does this by creating new neural pathways between the left and right hemispheres of your brain, which increases your perspective and your ability to see more, and also by opening the spigots of several key neurochemicals that also increase your awareness. My threshold was quite low when I started using Holosync. I was extremely reactive emotionally. Now, my threshold is very high. And, I’ve seen the same change happen to every person who has used Holosync on an ongoing basis.
This increase in threshold when you use Holosync is very similar to what happens when you exercise, which pushes your physical threshold higher. Notice that whether the threshold we’re pushing against is emotional, as with Holosync, or physical, as with exercise, this pushing is stressful. It’s a positive stress, one that makes you emotionally or physically stronger, but still it’s a stress.
You’ll notice also that when Holosync pushes against your threshold in the process of pushing it higher, it can feel uncomfortable–though it doesn’t have to. When Holosync pushes you to your threshold, your tendency will be to focus on what you don’t want, because that’s what people tend to do when they’re at or over their threshold. This is the real reason why it can feel uncomfortable—focusing on what you don’t want always creates some sort of uncomfortable state, some sort of bad feeling.
However, if you’re watching, and you notice that you’re feeling bad in some way, that you’re experiencing some sort of discomfort, you can choose to switch your focus to what you want. Or, you can just stand aside and observe, with no agenda for what does or does not happen. This latter response we call witnessing, and it means to watch with no agenda, as if you were just curiously observing someone else. “Hmm. There I am, feeling a bit distressed. Interesting.”
So let’s review. I introduced the idea that how you feel, how you behave, and what people and situations you attract or become attracted to are actually generated by something you do inside, the internal representations you make. I also told you that when you’re aware of something (as opposed to doing it unconsciously), you have a choice about it, you have control over it. When you’re unaware, when what you’re doing happens outside your awareness, you don’t have choice or control. So in terms of creating what you want in life, the name of the game is awareness. If you can become aware of the internal processes that generate your experience of life, you’ll have choice.
Holosync creates this awareness–in fact, quite dramatically–and most of what I write about (and my three online courses in particular) is designed to teach you how to focus that increased awareness on what you’re doing to create your experience of life.
The next distinction I made is that in the broadest sense the internal representations you make are either of what you want or what you don’t want. Bad feelings are created by internal pictures and internal dialog of what you don’t want, what you’re worried about, what you’re afraid of, or what you want to avoid. When you feel good, it’s because you’re focusing on what you want (in other words, making internal pictures of and internal dialog about what you want).
One key, then, to mastering your life is to become aware of your internal representations, and particularly whether they are of what you want or what you don’t want. That awareness creates choice, and that choice will allow you to feel good most, or even all, the time.
I want to make one more key distinction before we close. There is a big difference between merely knowing something and being aware of it. Most people who’ve been involved in personal growth for any time know quite a bit about their issues, their “stuff.” Knowing about it, however, though a good first step, won’t make your issues go away.
Let’s say that you often feel uneasy in social situations. You’ve known this for years, in fact. You may have discovered that certain events from your childhood affected your self esteem and that this lack of self esteem is connected to your uneasy feelings in social situations. Despite all that knowledge, though, you still feel uncomfortable in social situations.
If, however, you’re able to look inside and notice that in social situations you make internal representations of what you don’t want—not looking foolish, not being rejected, not feeling left out, or whatever—and you also see how these internal representations directly create your feeling of uneasiness, it will become very difficult to keep making those internal representations. You just can’t do something that isn’t resourceful and do it with awareness.
This also brings up one more key point. It isn’t what happened in the past that matters, as long as you’re aware. What matters is what you do now—in this case, what internal representations you make in the present. If you’re unaware, if your internal representations are happening automatically, your past will matter. Why? Because you’ll automatically make internal representations of avoiding more of the dangers you experienced in childhood—in this example, rejection. But if you are aware, and you see what you’re doing that creates your experience—not knowing what you’re doing, but actually seeing it happen—you won’t be able to keep doing it, because it isn’t resourceful.
There’s a lot of talk in personal growth circles about being in the now moment. As with everything else, being in the now moment is something you DO, not something that just happens. And the way you do being in the now moment is by being aware. And a big part of that is being aware of the internal representations you’re making and what they create. This ability, which, with practice, can be developed, is the modern equivalent to the yogic powers masters of the Far East are said to demonstrate. What has been referred to as “mind control” is really “mind awareness.”
Up to now I’ve focused mostly on how you create your feelings and haven’t talked a lot about how you create your behavior, or how you create the people and situations you attract or become attracted to. We’ll get into this in another post. I’ll just say here that your internal state, in a kind of chain reaction, generates these other aspects of your life. But one step at a time.
So here’s what I would like you to do. First, continue to use Holosync, as per the instructions, each day, so you can work on expanding your awareness. If you aren’t yet using Holosync, I would strongly suggest that you begin. It’s certainly possible to become more aware by observing your mind and noticing how it creates your experience of life. But when you do this while using Holosync, it become dramatically easier.
And, if you really want to go into the process of becoming aware of how you create your experience of life, I suggest that you look into my Life Principles Integration Process online courses. You can listen to a free preview lesson at www.centerpointe.com/life/preview.
Before I let you go I want you to know that Zen master Genpo Roshi and I will be doing another workshop in Los Angeles, March 7-8. And, because of the tough economic times, we’ve dramatically lowered the cost (see below).
What happens for people at these workshops is astonishing. If you want to have huge insights into who you really are and why your life is the way it is…if you want to drop some significant unconscious stuff that has been making certain areas of your life not work well…if you’d like to have a stunning experience of transcendent Oneness usually reserved for those who meditate for decades…or if you’d just like to take advantage of the opportunity work directly with me and with a real enlightened Zen master…this is for you.
Those who’ve been to the other workshops we’ve done have raved about what happened for them. Many people tell us that it was the most amazing experience if their entire life. Here are a few comments from people who’ve been to one of these events:
“Hi Bill, I was one of the 220 participants in the two day workshop of Big Mind/Big Heart. I can attest that all you say is true. It is a mind blowing experience, and like the gift that keeps on giving – days after I am still basking in the glow.” –April“I have been in the audience of many wonderful teachers, but nothing in my experience compares with this last weekend. I had no expectations really (except my usual nagging feelings of self doubt i.e. ?I won?t be able to get this,?). I must admit that my mind is still trying to figure out what took place.Its still hard for me to put into words, but I can say the experience and clarity is beyond any doubt. I must truly say that this is THE most extraordinary experience of my life so far.” –Richard
“For someone who lives in their emotions, this may seem phony at first. But actually, it is quite liberating. It freed up a lot of stuff for me, just to see that it was possible to live in a different way.
Would we attend another conference? Absolutely. Why? Because it’s a great thing to participate in: the group dynamic, Genpo Roshi, Bill Harris. Did anyone mention that Bill and Genpo are funny together? They can almost go on the road with a standup routine.” –Sandy
“I knew very little about Zen or Genpo Roshi; signed up intuitively. I’ve been meditating, attending growth seminars, workshops, studying, seeking, for 40+ years and most recently Holosync-ing, which I Love! AND I was completely amazed to be “in” Big Mind, experiencing the Transcendent State, feeling Bliss and One With Everything, completely out of ego state within the first 5 or 10 minutes of Genpo’s Process.
Exhilerating! Such an elegant, simple process, masterfully facilitated by Genpo Roshi and also Bill…at the end of the 1st day I realized a lifetime of shame and accompanying shallow breathing had been released–my body still feels very light and fully “breathed,” effortlessly, with an added measure of Happiness, Joy; Far less grasping at what I thought was ‘Reality.’ –Jani
I want to get a note from YOU like this, so please come. I can’t over-emphasize the incredible opening you can have at these workshops. Personally, I know that working with Genpo Roshi has dramatically accelerated my own growth, which is one reason why I want to share him and his Big Mind process with you. I think you’ll find what I’ll share during my part of the workshop pretty astonishing, too. So I hope you’ll be there. It will be well worth it, I promise.
Concerned about the money? I understand. We’ve dropped the tuition for this event by 40% because of the economy and to make it easier for you to afford to be there. The tuition has been $997–and well worth it. We’ve lowered it, though, by $200, and then we’ll also give you another $200 off for early registration if you sign up now. Finally, to make it even more affordable–and even better than 40% off–you can bring another person for half of the regular price (in other words, for $398.50). If two of you split the cost, this means you can both come for just $497.75–half of what other people have paid to be there.
I strongly urge you to give yourself this amazing experience. Just go to www.centerpointe.com/bigmind.
Until next time, be well.
