About The Essence of Life
In the Essence of Life education, you learn to use meditation, systematic self-reflection and somatic awareness to access the essence of key dimensions of the human experience, such as confidence, vitality, peace, compassion, joy and freedom.
This access will dissolve and heal many persistent issues you may have struggled with throughout life. It will make your life both simpler and richer.
The course builds on a combination of time-honoured spiritual traditions and modern-day research in cognitive science and positive psychology.
Students will typically get the following from the course:
- A profound sense of self-love and wholeness
- Increased tolerance, love and empathy for partners, children, friends, and colleagues
- Increased capacity to enjoy life as it is which makes your life both simpler and richer
- Courage to feel your vitality and passion and let it guide you in life
- Healing and resolution for issues you have struggled with throughout life
- Increased capacity to help clients and to resolve both intrapersonal and interpersonal conflicts with less drama
- Better understanding of other spiritual teachings you may have encountered
