Extensive 21 Sessions Challenge

21 Sessions Challenge
Extended - Generating

Module 1: Awareness

A fully comprehensive course designed to get your mind and therefore life into a better place. This first module of two explains in complete detail how to generate this foundation of mental health ‘awareness’ Without awareness, particularly self-awareness, there is no foundation to begin to work with your mind. Not only that but awareness allows us to live more in the moment, to be less reactive and to enable focus and concentration into every aspect of our life. By being with our awareness we are less caught by obsessive thinking and negative mental states which cause mental unhappiness and physical sickness.

Build more joy, confidence, health and well-being into your life. Can be done over 21 days, or a longer time frame if needed and provides every tool you need to keep going on your own. Each session consists of a introductory talk audio, a PDF summary & a meditation audio. Everything is here for you to continue and work at your own pace to cultivate this beautiful mind state.

Welcome to the first of a series of condensed 21 session challenges: Developing Awareness

1. What do these challenges involve?

There will be 21 sessions of audio presentations; a short talk and then a guided meditation. Along with & following these audios each session there will suggested challenges for you to follow during the day.

Full immersion into this challenge is ideal and would involve following the audios and completing the other parts of the challenge suggested each session. Time wise this would be approx. 15 minutes of introductory audio plus another 15 of meditation practice, once or twice during the day.
