The Insight Project
The Insight Project - the most advanced approach to personal spiritual discovery and the enhancement of consciousness - applies the technique of 'meta-programming,' meaning "to transcend or rise above one's programming or conditioning of a lifetime and beyond."
This is an in-depth exploration of the belief systems which make up the various facets of your personality, and therefore determine your identity (and hidden conflicting identities) and corresponding life goals. The intuitive wisdom of the emotions is accessed using simple biofeedback equipment, providing a path to full realization of the Higher Self - the spiritual power of life, love and truth.
You will find online a full introduction to the subject, which explains how it is possible for you to re-discover the Higher Self - that is, the real you. From the more objective, bird's-eye view which is the Higher Self, it becomes possible to rise above the programming imprinted by the experiences and cultural conditioning of your current lifetime and beyond, as well as the programs genetically inherited. These insights bring wisdom: acceptance and understanding. One is no longer limited to an ego-centric identity, in contrast to one's true potential of unlimited love, life and truth.
"In my view, The Insight Project is without doubt the safest, soundest and most powerful method of self-development available. After searching for countless years and unsuccessfully trying many different approaches, I've finally found my path. Peter's personal coaching has made possible for me to achieve in a few months what I thought would take a lifetime."
--E. Espinar-Mick (USA)
The Insight Project is a set of analytical procedures which you apply to yourself, with the aid of biofeedback monitoring, in order to differentiate the spiritual part of your being from the mental and physical. Discover your Higher Self and its capability of Full realization.
The course is delivered in PDF format and Part I - Meta-Programming costs US$ 297.00 including unlimited support from Peter Shepherd by email. It is necessary to use a GSR biofeedback monitor to do The Insight Project: we recomend the InnerTrac™ Emotional Response Indicator, in our opinion the best.

- "Think Like A Genius" by Todd Siler. At the heart of genius thinking is the process that Todd Siler has defined as Metaphorming. It's the process of transferring and transforming new meanings and associations from one object or idea to another. The process of Connection, Discovery, Invention and Application is at the core of genius thinking. It is both simple and common sense, to the extent that some may discount its true power. However, to do this is to reject a very powerful concept - anyone is capable of genius thinking.
- "Peak Evolution" by Lauren Holmes. Peak Evolution is a how-to book for operating as you were designed to... with evolutionary consequences. Anthropologist and futurist, Lauren Holmes, presents a revolutionary but accessible, step-by-step route to continuous and sustainable transformation. This is a brand new approach to achieving the most evolved states known to mankind.
- "The Art of Problem Solving" by Russell L. Ackoff. Wharton School professor and father figure in operations research, Russ Ackoff is brilliant and incisive. He has an uncanny ability to frame problems so the solutions pop out and is funny to boot. There are many parables in the text - a form of exposition to which I am partial - and these clarify some quite complicated analyzes and lead to "morals" such as, "The less we understand something, the more variables we need to explain it".
- "Conceptual Blockbusting" by James L. Adams. The author has a background as an engineer and Stanford professor. He defines various "blocks" to creativity such as stereotyping, judging etc. and suggests strategies to overcome them. The best parts are the exercises peppered throughout the various chapters. Be sure to try these. (Sample: Imagine the sensation of a long attack of hiccups).
- "Lateral Thinking" by Edward DeBono. Vertical thinking, according to DeBono, is digging the same hole deeper. Lateral thinking is digging someplace else. Junior is bothering his aunt who is knitting a sweater. He feels constricted by the playpen and howls. Solution: put the aunt in the playpen where she can knit undisturbed while junior romps outside. Several sets of exercises are included.
- "Six Thinking Hats" by Edward DeBono. DeBono specifies hats of six colors, each associated with a different thinking mode. Putting on the white hat requires you to present facts and figures in a neutral, objective manner. The red hat requires you to present how you feel about "the proposal" emotionally, the black hat what your negative assessments are, and so on. The method is designed to switch thinking away from arguments into collaboration.
- "Serious Creativity" by Edward DeBono. Prolific as he is, it is easy to understand how DeBono can afford to live on his own private island. This book summarizes his other works and gives new anecdotes, business examples and exercises..
- "Creative Problem Solving: The Basic Course" by Scott G. Isakson and Donald J. Treffinger. This is a workbook that comes in a three hole binder and provides detailed instructions on data finding, problem structuring, idea and solution finding etc. The checklists of questions are quite helpful.
- "The Creative Edge" by William Miller. A consultant to major corporations, Miller does a fine job of showing how to enhance creativity in individual and group settings. His discourse on intuitive methods is good, as is his discussion of human values. Methods of achieving "win-win" solutions in the workplace are neat.
- "The Magic of Your Mind" by Sidney J. Parnes. Another book that talks about the creative process, what blocks it and how we can overcome the blocks. Many standard exercises are presented. The sans-serif type is none too easy to read but, to compensate, there is a profusion of cartoons most of which are very, very funny.
- "A Whack on the Side of the Head" and "A Kick in the Seat of the Pants" by Roger von Oech. Nobody would publish his first book so von Oech did it himself and created a blockbuster success that is still being touted by purveyors of manuals on self publishing. It also established his reputation as a creativity consultant and he picked up many prestigious Silicon Valley clients including Apple Computers. Oversize and easy to read. Good graphics and pictures. Fun exercises.
- "Zen and the Art of Making a Living" by Laurence G. Boldt. The subtitle of this book is "A Practical Guide to Creative Career Design" and it is that and more. The best book, by far, that I have come across on how to identify what your strengths are, how to visualize your ideal job and how to go about bringing it into existence. Hundreds of inspiring quotes and dozens of thoughtful checklists. If you go through this book with care, it will assuredly be life changing in addition to thought provoking.
- "Cultivating Inner Peace" by Paul R. Fleischman. The author tries to deliver on the title by defining "inner peace" and outlining simple steps that can be taken to reach the state where the noise and violence is all outside you. He makes reference to powerful role models such as John Muir, Walt Whitman, Gandhi, Thoreau and Tagore and draws lessons from their privations and methods of dealing with them.
- "Skillful Means: Patterns for Success" by Tulku Rinpoche. The patterns of success that Tulku discusses in great detail in this book have to do with self awareness, coping with change and sharing with others. Long before anyone heard the term "emotional intelligence," Tulku was practicing and teaching it. A classic from a master.
- "The Path of Least Resistance" by Robert Fritz. An inspiring book that analyzes the process of creating and the mental barriers that frequently obstruct this, and describes how best to go about achieving new objectives.
- "The Possible Human : A Course in Enhancing Your Physical, Mental, and Creative Abilities" When Dr. Jean Houston began The Foundation for Mind Research in 1965, her aim was to explore cultures in order to uncover the many ways peak human potential was defined and achieved. After extensive research using techniques such as dream work, altered states of consciousness and biofeedback on thousands of subjects, she began to conduct workshops that focused on psychophysical (mind/body) awareness and enhancement to reach a higher level of being. The core elements of these workshops are recreated here through essays and exercises designed to "awaken," in every sense, our physical and mental capacities, and to explore the realms of our inner space and creative processes.
- "Inner Knowing: Consciousness, Creativity, Insight, and Intuition" by Helen Palmer. This new release in the New Consciousness Reader series is a stunning collection of essays from leading authorities on perception, creativity, and intuition. Palmer hopes to offer a classic resource for anyone who wants to commit to developing his or her mental and spiritual powers.

- The Bilateral Psycho-Galvanometer
The simple psycho-galvanometer was one of the earliest tools of psychological research. A psycho-galvanometer measures the resistance of the skin to the passage of a very small electric current. It has been known for decades that the magnitude of this electrical resistance is affected, not only by the subject’s general mood, but also by immediate emotional reactions. Several researchers have noticed that one side of the body gives different responses to the other. The point of using a Bilateral Psycho-Galvanometer, as invented by Gregory Mitchell and utilized throughout the research of Mind Development, is to monitor the differential arousal of the two hemispheres of the cortex.
If one takes into account that the left hemisphere of the cortex usually controls speech, logical action and symbolic functions, while the right hemisphere is responsible for spatial and holistic processes, there is value in having a simple device to facilitate cognitive growth through the technique of real-time, instantaneous biofeedback monitoring with the Bilateral Psycho-Galvanometer. A full instruction manual for application of the Bilateral Psycho-Galvanometer is available for download here. Unfortunately there is no current manufacturer of the Bilateral Psycho-Galvanometer, but I hope and expect that situation to change; in the meantime there is a great deal of understanding to be gained by learning about this technique.
