Do I need any specific knowledge or training to do this course?
No. The course covers everything you need to know and it guides you step by step through the process of Connecting Inward™. The only thing you want to have in place is a desire to start communicating with your Inner Being.
What are the benefits of communicating with my Inner Being using the Connecting Inward™ method?
The benefits are profound and immeasurable. By developing a daily Connecting Inward™ practice, you can gain valuable and life-changing insights and wisdom from your Inner Being on a range of topics. Additionally, the more you connect and communicate with your Inner Being, the more guidance and insights you will receive. My life has changed immeasurably in all areas because of this practice.
I already have a meditation practice. Why should I do this?
Because classic meditation and this are very different. In classic meditation you are simply quieting your mind, allowing your vibration to rise. In Connecting Inward, I teach you not just how to quiet your mind so that your vibration can rise, I teach you the art of allowing. I teach you how to begin allowing that which your Inner Being is offering you already that you aren't recognizing yet. I teach you how to translate and expand this allowing and in turn, begin communicating with your own Inner Being in a very short time period. Read some comments from previous students to understand this more.
Can Connecting Inward help me with my creativity and career goals?
Absolutely. Once you begin tuning into and communicating with your Inner Being using this manner, you will receive guidance and heightened states of knowing in all areas of your life, especially in your creativity and work. Your Inner Being knows everything you want and therefore will guide you regarding all matters in your life, but the matter of creativity is one that you can see profound changes in immediately. This is because authentic creativity is born from alignment with Source consciousness and allowing energy to flow. And that is what you begin doing using the Connecting Inward method.
How does this method compare to the use of LSD micro-dosing and other methods of expanded consciousness, including Ayahuasca ?
There is simply no comparison. Connecting Inward is hands-down a better choice than any chemical substance. That is because in Connecting Inward you are learning how to allow the altered states of consciousness in safe and nurturing ways. It is what your Inner Being will naturally guide you to do once you begin allowing the communication.
When you use micro-dosing, other chemical substances, or Ayahuasca, you are artificially creating a pathway to a partial state of consciousness that does not remain with you after the substance leaves your system. That is why you have to keep taking the substance in order to experience the benefits. With Connecting Inward, you receive the benefits of expanded consciousness evermore. The benefits are not time-limited.
Additionally, there are zero side effects. The process of connecting and communicating with your Inner Being in this manner is often described as an extremely joyful, ecstatic experience. It can be truly profound and beautifully intense and one of the most important experiences of your life.
I studied Shamanism for many years and worked as a Shamanic counselor and I never opted to take Ayahuasca because of the inherent dangers that I knew could be part of the experience. I also utilized LSD as a naive teenager and almost lost my life from the experience. I value the experience in that opened me up to the idea of altered states of consciousness, but it was extremely dangerous. It however is part of what ultimately what led me on a 30-year quest to understand consciousness more. And that is what lead me to recently share the Connecting Method with others after evolving it and utilizing it formally for my own personal purposes for the past 18 years.
What if I tried meditation previously and it didn't work?
I get it! I too didn't resonate with classic meditation for many years. So if you tried meditation and it didn't work for you or you found it difficult, then Connecting Inward is a wonderful solution for you. This is because the Connecting Inward process helps you focus in a different way than classic meditation, and for most people it's easier, faster, and more enjoyable. Plus I guide you step by step through the process so that you increase your focus each day of the course.
How many days does it take to complete the course?
The course consists of 21 daily videos, which are designed to be watched one per day first thing in the morning. If you complete a daily video every day, then you will complete the course in 21 days. That said, during the course there are times when I may recommend that you repeat a video. This can happen once or many times, depending upon your own personal pace. So in that case, the course would take longer to complete.
How much time do I need to allow for this course each day?
The course videos range from 20 to 37 minutes in duration, although the majority of them are 30 minutes or less. Plus, I ask you to spend a minimum of 5 minutes per day journaling after completing your daily video. So you can expect to spend about 30 to 45 minutes per day on course activities.
Is there a certain time of day when I should do this course?
I highly recommend that you do the course activities in the morning -- as soon after wake-up as you can. This is because the period after wake-up is the optimal time to quiet your mind and begin connecting with your Inner Being. You can grab a beverage or bite to eat, but I recommend that you don’t check email or social media, start work, drive anywhere, watch the news, or have long conversations until after completing the daily video and journaling activity.
What happens if I miss a day?
For momentum purposes, it is ideal to watch the course videos on consecutive days. That said, if you need to skip a day or days, you can. When you resume the course just be sure to pick back up with the next video on your list and not skip ahead. This is because each daily video builds on the activities of the previous video --so you will miss key information if you skip ahead.
Can I jump around in the course?
No. Each day of the course is designed to build upon the activities of the previous day. So it's important to do the course in order from Day 1 to Day 21, and not miss any. Also you only want to complete one video per day.
Do I need anything for this course?
Yes, there are a few things you will need. First you'll need an MP3 audio soundtrack. I will give specific guidance in the Day 1 video on how to select this soundtrack. You also will need two devices - one to play the daily video and one to play the MP3 soundtrack - plus two sets of earbud style headphones with good sound quality. Additionally, you will need a notebook or journal if you plan to journal on paper, plus a quiet, private, and comfortable space to do the course activities. I explain all of these items in detail in the Getting Started Unit of the course.
Do you have a refund policy?
Yes, I have a seven day refund policy. If you decide this course isn't working for you, send me an email within seven days explaining how you applied this course to your life and the reason for why you believe it isn't a fit. As this is a shorter duration course, I do not offer refunds beyond the seven day cut-off.
Can I download this course or do I need continual internet access?
Unfortunately, the video files in this course are too large, and too many in number, to download. So to do this course, you do need one device that has high speed internet access so you can access the course website and watch the videos, open supporting files, etc.
What happens if I have questions as I'm doing the course?
The course Facebook group has a Frequently Asked Questions section that I will be updating regularly as students move through the course. You also can email me with course questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How does the group coaching call work?
Each week I'll do a Group Coaching Call that you can participate in to discuss your experiences, ask questions, etc. If you can't make the call, you can submit your question in advance and watch the recording.
I have a question about signing up for the course. How can I reach you?
Email me at email@example.com
How excited are you about teaching this method to others?
Extremely! I'm thrilled to be able to take others on this journey of learning to connect with their Inner Being in this way. I look forward to seeing you in the course and the course Facebook group!
