New Studies Continuously Point to the Efficacy of Meditation

2019-05-17T19:41:26+00:00

You never know what it will be that moves your life in a new direction. For example, it was a running injury that propelled Mass General and Harvard Medical School’s neuroscientist, Sara Lazar, to begin studying meditation. It all began after sustaining an injury while training for the Boston Marathon. Because of her injury, her physical therapist advised her to stretch more, so naturally she took up yoga. Lazar had heard all the claims about yoga and its benefits, but she was mostly in it for the physical therapy. It didn’t take long, however, for her to notice that she [...]

Free Will or Predeterminism? Join the 28-Day Challenge to Find Out.

2019-02-20T21:09:23+00:00

Please note: This is an ongoing challenge and there is no sign up. It starts when you start. Is it possible to create your destiny? Can you become the master of your fate? Do we actually have free will? Or is our life predestined from the cradle to the grave? Since Descartes in the 17th century, all the way to quantum physicists today, the intellectual argument and resultant division has always been about the heated topic of free will versus predeterminism. So how do we unify the two? Actually, it’s quite simple. For all of our students who have attended [...]

Part II. Awaking in the Dream from the Dream: Why We’re Learning Lucid Dreaming

2017-11-16T21:41:51+00:00

When most people awake in the morning, they don’t remember their dreams because they jump right back into the program of all the things they need to do that day. They immediately go from delta, which is deep sleep, straight up the brain wave scale to beta, which is thinking and performing tasks. In the process, they don’t have time to slowly transition and gradually climb the ladder of consciousness from delta, to theta, to alpha, to beta. I wanted to give our students enough time to linger in the subconscious states of alpha and theta so that they could [...]

Part I. Awakening in the Dream from the Dream: DreamTime

2017-10-27T19:06:17+00:00

“We are all visitors to this time, this place. We are just passing through. Our purpose here is to observe, to learn, to grow, to love…and then we return home.” – Australian Aboriginal saying Two weeks ago in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, for the first time I officially introduced a lying down meditation. Much to the surprise of our students, it began at 11pm and ended around 7am. When you ask people to sleep on the floor instead of their beds, and you continuously wake them in the middle of the night, naturally they’re not going to be very happy, [...]

The Positive Effects of Yoga and Meditation at the Molecular Level

2017-06-24T14:37:06+00:00

For the past several decades, the world has seen an exponential growth, interest, and curiosity in mind-body interventions such as yoga, meditation, and Tai Chi. After practicing such disciplines, it doesn’t take long for us to feel physically stronger and experience increased mental clarity. As the saying goes, it does the mind and body good. But new research by the universities of Coventry and Radboud, published in the journal Frontiers in Immunology, suggest that the benefits of these practices are far greater than simply calming the mind and strengthening the body. The benefits actually begin at the molecular level and can [...]

Reflections on last Sunday’s Project Coherence

2017-02-06T19:03:34+00:00

On Sunday, January, 15th, from Lake Garda, Italy, we completed our third global meditation called Project Coherence. As we now know, there have been many studies on peace gatherings, resulting in the reduction of crime, violence, poverty, war, struggle, and strife, while at the same time increasing economic development. Participants from all over the world joined us in Project Coherence under the belief that consciousness has an effect on matter and the world—that we are more than just matter, bodies, and particles. Shortly after the meditation, I received a note from one of our students that I thought was a [...]

Be a Part of Scientific History

2016-08-05T10:43:35+00:00

It’s hard to refute the fact that we’re living in challenging times; divisive politics, fear mongering, the threat of terrorism, climate change, fluctuations in the stock market…While it’s a time of uncertainty, that doesn’t mean we can’t do anything. Let’s unite to produce a positive effect in the world. It’s now been scientifically proven and validated across 23 studies that peace gathering projects have been known to lower violence, terrorism, war, crime, car accidents, fires, and increase economic growth. That’s why I want to invite you to join a community of more than 7,000 people across the globe as we [...]

Creating Your Future – One Step at a Time

2017-02-06T19:03:35+00:00

There are four types of meditations that most traditions embrace; seated, standing, walking, and laying down, and in our work we practice all of them. After our workshops, many of our students continue doing their seated meditations at home. They wake up in the morning and the first thing they do is sit down to meditate. This is an ideal way to start the day. But does this sound familiar? You just had a great meditation, felt like you really connected, you overcame an aspect of yourself, and emotionally embraced a new future. You shifted your energy, you’re feeling powerful, [...]

Demystifying the Meditation Process

2017-02-06T19:03:35+00:00

If your meditation practice continuously feels like a herculean effort, and you can’t stop thinking, analyzing, and wondering if you’re doing it right, you’re doing the exact opposite of what you’re trying to accomplish. That’s why I want to demystify the meditation process. The purpose of meditation is to slow down your brain waves and get beyond the thinking, analytical mind. What I want you to understand is that you already know how to do this, because you do it every day. If you can begin your practice with the understanding that all you’re doing is relaxing your body (just [...]
