An evolutionary jump...
You may, at some time, have had a "peak experience," an ecstatic moment or a moment of greater understanding, when your consciousness expanded - and you knew it. When this occurs, the integration between left brain (logical thinking) and right brain (intuitive feelings and emotions) is manifested in increased energy-flow between the two sides.
This is thinking and feeling in an holistic and balanced way. It is a foretaste of an evolutionary jump for humanity - a new level of mental maturity, an awakening.
These are the very factors which our courses aim to demonstrate and develop. By learning how to arouse the whole brain, selectively and at will, the mode of consciousness may be freely altered, appropriate to the task or situation - whether a crisis, making music, relaxing, mental arithmetic, brainstorming, or contemplating nature.
In this new wide-awake consciousness, the world seems to be full of possibilities - it possesses a strong sense of rediscovered meaning. This is nothing mystical, it is essentially ordinary consciousness, operating for once at its proper efficiency.
"When we pull back and get, for a moment, the 'bird's eye' view of life,
it reveals meanings that are ungraspable by the narrow focus
of our usual worm's eye view" --Colin Wilson
Researchers tell us that one side of the brain is usually cut off from the other, and that most of the time, little of the potential capacity of the brain is actually in use. Brain studies have shown that people who are functioning optimally have a high level of inter-hemispheric communication and that the two sides are working in synchrony, as described above. Also overall arousal is higher and under conscious control - this is the skill of sustained concentration.
The Mind Development courses are designed to achieve these aims by a step-by-step gradient approach, which ensures that all appropriate stages of development are in their natural sequence. Misunderstood words, how to study, principles of communication, listening and questioning skills, concentration, visualization, reading skills, memory, restored body-image, speed of thought, creativity and intuition are just some of the subjects which you will master. This will give you an objective understanding and control of your own mind and equally a new understanding and empathy with others.
The courses in Mind Development will enable you to:
|Study more effectively||Reduce stress levels|
|Comprehend more||Raise your IQ and creativity|
|Remember more||Awareness of your true identity|
|Increase reading speed||Clearer self-expression|
|Put plans into action and|
realize your objectives in life
|Have more energy|
and better concentration
What is Mind Development?
The courses that we run are a synthesis of the most workable techniques from all known systems of mind development, continuously added to as new methods and ideas are carefully evaluated. The whole is greater than the sum of the parts, however, since the techniques are arranged in such a way as to awaken the brain in an ordered sequence, corresponding to its natural evolution. In this context, our students' learning experiences over 25 years and considerable further research and development of our own over 30 years, has enhanced Mind Development to the point where it has become one of the world's most effective and far reaching systems of mind/brain/ consciousness enhancement.
The main objective is self-improvement. The training is based on the premise that we have learned disabilities, which set boundaries to our action and knowing. But no one need accept that they must remain as they were shaped, by hereditary limits and by the conditioning of their childhood and culture.
Once we find a worthwhile goal, the power of will alone can change the programming of our minds. The human brain is so constructed that it will adapt itself to the demands of the mind, ordered by the power of will.
The courses of Mind Development follow the natural developmental progression described by Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs...
Basic needs of physical and mental health, plus adequate security and safety, are assumed starting points for students on the courses. The MD Courses provide skills that help the student better meet his or her social needs for belonging and acceptance. Learning to perceive acutely, concentrate, read, and study very well aid the individual's integration with society and the work place.
The courses teach skills that give a dramatic increase in performance. The certainty of being able to excel gives a corresponding rise in self-esteem.
Furthermore, MD Courses provoke an independence of thought, so that the student becomes free to think and live outside of the box of their cultural upbringing - to be truly themselves and in a much better position to fulfill their needs for Self Actualization.
Through the preparation obtained by well-done Mind Development, the student is in an ideal position to proceed in the natural direction of Transpersonal discovery, to find their own spiritual truth, independent from existing religions and philosophies. Following on from Mind Development, Trans4mind offers an ideal program to accelerate this process: The Insight Project. Note: this is a paid and fully supported advanced course.
How does Mind Development Work?
When you feel angry or depressed, in a self-defeating way, this is the result of negative or irrational inner-speech that you may not even be aware of, as it is often very fleeting or below the threshold of consciousness, or simply not recognized as such.
These evaluations are linked to earlier times, when they were instilled by force of painful experience. When such an experience was too uncomfortable to remember, the feelings (in the right brain) were repressed and made unconscious.
Considerable mental energy is locked-up by continuing to repress feelings and emotions, and this is justified by irrational and over-generalized conclusions about self and others. The Mind Development Courses enable you to look again at your beliefs with a fresh viewpoint. This will help you to release the effects of held-back trauma and have fuller access to your right-brain potential for intuitive, creative and holistic thinking.
With a more flexible outlook and greater freedom of emotional expression, new horizons may appear, and goals approached that before seemed out of reach. Problems and difficulties now become opportunities for creative choice and valuable learning, stepping-stones towards what you really want to achieve.

"I would like to thank Gregory and Peter for your research and hard work. The groundbreaking information contained in the Mind Development courses is more valuable than anything I have learned in a classroom. The MD courses have helped me perform better in the classroom (I am a college student) and also help me in day to day activities, such as conversations and constructive arguments. I appreciate everything MD has done for me. I truly believe that these lessons need to be taught to everybody and hope that they will eventually make their way into traditional classrooms." --Nicholas Calarco
"Before doing any Mind Development courses I had a measured IQ of 101 and a reading speed of 180 words per minute, and a digit span of 6. In other words, I was average and as a result, not accomplishing anything of note in my life. The common wisdom is that IQ is a static inherited trait and one simply has to make the best of whatever one is blessed with. My experience differs dramatically...
At the end of several Basic Courses my IQ had increased to 109, with a reading speed of 315 words per minute and my digit span had increased to seven. It might not sound a lot but in practice, this opened up whole new avenues for me. I went on to study Reiki, Rolfing and some other healing methods and passed the exams with flying colors. Before I could never have spoken well in public - I did not have the confidence, because I knew I didn't have the necessary mental skills. After my Mind Development training, however, all this had changed for the better and I was able to give public talks on Reiki and Rolfing.
After further Mind Development training on the Intermediate Courses [not yet available online], my IQ increased still further to 124, my reading speed to 550 words per minute and my digit span to eight. I enrolled in the Open University and took a degree in Sociology. My life was now totally transformed and I have never looked back!" --Roland Alston
