First of all, what is personal development, as practiced at Trans4mind? It is learning ways to clarify who exactly one IS, where this is obscured; to develop greater intelligence, life skills and creative potential; and to empower individuals to recognize and overcome their life challenges. In this way, a person's quality of life is enhanced... individuals get the chance to fulfill their dreams, and above all, to discover a genuine sense of inner peace and serenity.
The aim of personal development is to...
care for our health and well-being
develop communication and relationship skills
raise awareness and mindfulness
develop the intellect
increase emotional intelligence
better face personal life challenges
recognize our spiritual dimension
Personal development works by enhancing and integrating rational, emotive and intuitive faculties - mind, body and spirit working in unison. This empowers us to live a happy and fulfilling life, through exercising free choice, seeing objective truth and realizing the highest degree of purpose.
We achieve these aims by providing comprehensive free on-line tools and resources to assist with personal development, created and presented with extraordinary care, and made available to visitors free of charge at point of use. In addition, we have developed a range of purchasable home-study personal development courses that offer more in-depth training, with personal support by email. We also provide links to worthwhile third-party products that we can honestly recommend, so all needs are addressed.
Our mission is to maintain a comprehensive personal development service dedicated to the uplifting of humanity worldwide, providing each visitor with an abundant choice, both of free and paid resources, to create their path of personal and spiritual growth. We are not linked with a religion or belief system, nor do we seek to control or manipulate people in any way. We work in a practical way with people to help them find their own inner truth and guidance.
At all points, dogma is avoided - indeed, the motto of Trans4mind is: "Minds, like parachutes, function better when open." Having said that, we recognize some fundamental, universal truths, also widely recognized by the world's great religions and philosophers. In particular we feel that Love is our essential nature, that by asking - What would love do? - and listening to our inner voice and feelings we can sense inner guidance, and that this loving guidance is the core of our spirituality. If our life is guided by Love, we can be sure we are on the right path.
Our primary values are:
To focus on each person’s needs.
To be open minded and holistic in our approach.
To serve the public with integrity.
To offer high quality products and services
To market our training through love and service.
To operate independently of any philosophy or religion.
To provide this service in perpetuity for the uplifting of humanity
What business are we in?
We are in the business of education and training that helps people recognize, face up to and overcome their life challenges.
We are not in the business of making maximum money by selling products of dubious value using hard sell techniques that manipulate the customer.
What do we suggest you do first?
To the newcomer, this site may seem a bit overwhelming at first - there are so many possibilities! You may be asking, "How can I find that one product or service that is most relevant to me?"
In general the 30-lesson home-study course called 'The Positive Approach' is an excellent place to start working in a positive way to profoundly help yourself, and I would work through at least the beginning parts of that as thoroughly as you can before paying for any further courses or services. In that way you can prove to yourself that you can make progress with self-directed personal development, and then you can go from success to success with the further appropriate free and paid tools that we suggest. It's available freely. I think it's a great way to get going and to judge whether you like the Trans4mind approach to personal development. If you do, then you'll like the more in-depth courses too.
If you've been viewing the site for a while now, I guess you've read at least some of 'Transforming the Mind'. That's the area that the New Life Course home-study course takes off from. It's a personal development course based on the principles of rational-emotive psychology, with elements of NLP as well. It helps to get a person thinking clearly and to obtain emotionally stability, which one needs before going on to The Insight Project. The Insight Project is an in-depth, advanced course that moves into the area of transpersonal psychology and spiritual development, and requires regular self-administered sessions for at least a year.
Note that these courses are personal and spiritual development, they are not a substitute for one-to-one psychotherapy or medical treatment, when these are needed. Though there is certainly a therapeutic element, because they are home-study these courses are for normally happy, healthy and stable individuals looking to enhance their quality of life further.
Trans4mind does not advocate any particular philosophy and is not affiliated to any religious teaching or organization. But we do take an holistic approach, which includes the spiritual dimension of our lives - indeed, we feel that discovering and fulfilling this dimension of our being is the raison d'etre of personal development.
