This course was created as an introduction and overview of the principles behind the inside-out understanding at the heart of all of the work I do. This extraordinary new understanding of how our minds work turns traditional psychology on its head, pointing to how while most people think that their experience of life is coming at them from the outside world, it's actually coming through them from the inside-out.

We're living in the feeling of our thinking, not the feeling of the world. When our thoughts look real, we live in a world of suffering. When they look subjective, we live in a world of choice. When they look arbitrary, we live in a world of possibility. And when we see them as illusory, we wake up inside a world of dreams. The more we understand where our experience of life is actually coming from, the less frightened we'll be of that experience.

And to quote the Scottish mystic Syd Banks, "If the only thing people learned was not to be afraid of their own experience, that alone would change the world." Are you ready for a whole new way of thinking about thought?
