I consider Dr. Hawkins to be my greatest teacher of consciousness. Having transcended all the obstacles AND being able to teach from his own experience of having done so makes him a unique and rare treasure in our time. And his humor makes it fun!
Dr. Hawkins opens this lecture with thoughts about the mind, positionality, and dedication to truth. A person has to be willing to sacrifice everything and anything for the truth. He explains how "wantingness" causes misery and that one’s point of view contributes to that state. Stating the truth usually upsets some people. He discusses the spiritual ego, our perceived faults, what to do about them in order to become "bulletproof", and what brings us joy. In contrast, he talks about hatred in the world today and the actions that come out of it.

In this live lecture, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer explores intention as an all-pervading force in the universe that allows the act of creation to take place.

But as Parker Palmer explains, those words can also mean "listen to your life, and let it tell you what your truth is."
"Deep Wisdom in these pages"
In this program, Les Brown provides a foundational key that can propel you to your next higher level. There are times in life when it seems hard to actually affirm that you can make it; and that you can actually overcome that particular obstacle and attain that new height. You can’t always say I know I can and keep integrity with yourself and your true feelings. What you can use as a benchmark and a place to always fall back to is “It’s Possible!”
In Dr. Wayne Dyer's newest public television special, taped live in front of 1,000 fans in Boston's historic theater district, he transforms conventional thinking about making things happen in our lives into a profound understanding of how each person possesses the infinite potential and power to co-create the life he or she desires.
In this program, Les Brown takes your attention to another level. You look your challenge straight in the eye and recognize that life didn’t blink. When you take on the goals and dreams that put your signature on the place that you have occupied, it requires the best of you. You can’t go around choosing dreams based on how much stress and strain they will or will not cause. You have to go up in the face of that dream which is your dream and come to grips with the fact that “It’s Hard!”

In this program, Les Brown goes straight to the source of our possibilities and dials into the fact that there are people along the way who will be important to you and your success.
