The aim of writing 'Transforming the Mind' was to seek key principles that can be applied by individuals to improve their lives. The approach taken was:
I don't claim to be the originator of any of these key principles; nevertheless my attempt to find the truth commonly held by many different theorists has proven to be of value to many people.
I wrote this book many years ago for my own interest and satisfaction, with no intention to publish it. When publishing on the Internet became easily accessible in '97, I put it online: it was immediately popular and since then over 500,000 copies have been downloaded.
Insights drawn from 'Transforming the Mind' inform the home-study personal growth courses that I run and the forthcoming Trans4mind Training online interactive video workshops. Our courses and training further develop many of the principles and exercises. They present in-depth self-help procedures that make a real difference when applied toward your personal development and spiritual transformation. The book serves to present their philosophical and psychological basis.
