Here is an outline of what you can expect


ReSurfacing Workshops

Section I of the Avatar

What you can expectThe discovery of your personal belief blueprint. How your personal reality works

Section I of the Avatar Course begins with theory and sets forth ideas about the relationship between ‘beliefs and reality’. (You can read this in the book Living Deliberately to make a start before you begin the course). These ideas are then subject to various test examinations (individually and in groups) to allow you to determine whether such relationships do in fact exist. The exercises are from the ReSurfacing Book.

You will learn how to manage your attention (a key skill of leadership), identify and explore your current beliefs and learn how to develop more compassion. This sets you up ready to start the next section of the course.



Section II of the Avatar – The Exercises

What you can expectExploration into the perceptions of your world, effects of beliefs and judgments. How to create personal reality. Working with your own consciousness

Section II of the Avatar Course develops your ability to create reality. This often results in transforming realisations about why certain aspects of work or personal life have fallen short of their potential and how to correct this. You learn how to unlock yourself from beliefs you are ‘stuck’ in and to align your efforts with the future you want to create. Self sabotaging beliefs are exposed. You get to experience reality without judgement. An effortless letting go and peace of mind

Section III of the Avatar course – The Rundowns

What you can expectYour personal identity, deliberate creation of who you are in the world, and the ability to handle your limitations and the ability to help others

Section III begins with a guided session, which introduces you to procedures and tools that you can use to manage your life. You develop your ability to intentionally discreate your perceptions of reality. You will go through a process that allows you to separate from the most fundamental and restricting belief structures of life, and then on to complete 7 solo rundowns that enable you to address limitations, dependencies, persistent situations, interpersonal conflicts and limiting beliefs of others without confrontation. You can read more about these in Living Deliberately chapter 10. This is where you get to handle the stuff in your life that you really want to get rid of. The prerequisite of this is to have completed Section I and II
