Mind is the Most Powerful Aspect of Human Nature

It is our best tool, honed over thousands of years – the ordinary mind is brilliant.

What? You don’t feel brilliant? Do you think your ideas aren’t as good as your peers’?

Does your planning always seem to fall short? Can you not remember names (or dates or facts)?

These and others skills like them are aspects of but one part of the mind, the mind that knows about things.

Narrowing it Down to Something Bigger

The training described here engages and cultivates more foundational and all-pervading aspects of mind, non-conceptual arenas. They are enhanced directly through use of raw mind power that does not focus on a topic. It is the practice of attending itself; of awareness itself. And it is brilliant!

Training the Mind helps you to:

  • Reduce stress and increase contentment
  • Open to creativity and seeing interconnections
  • Focus attention
  • Improve communication and deepen relationships
  • Connect with meaning in your life
