Presence of Mind course

This course is designed to help you to live in the present. Greater presence of mind leads to greater self-awareness, insight and foresight. This in turn gives you access to more Love, Happiness and Intelligence. This is the golden treasure hidden in the present moment. What keeps us out of the present? Thoughts, dreams and procrastination. How do we deal with them? Thoughts and dreams carry the power of freedom or imprisonment. Which will it be? What, in reality, is present?

The Presence of Mind course is offered to all students who have completed the Happiness Course.
