Exploring the Mind, Brain, Body, Behavior Connection:

Understanding Universal Principles Changes Everything!

Join me for this 8-week online program that explores how incremental insights into the Nature of the Three Universal Principles of Mind, Consciousness and Thought increases the experience of Peace of Mind and maximizes Health in Mind, Brain, Body, Behavior, Relationships, Creativity and Productivity.


I will draw upon my 26 years of mentoring by Sydney Banks, my own 37 year journey of insight as a student and sharer of the Principles and my 50 plus years as a student of medicine, psychiatry, physiology and neuroscience to point to simplicity where there is apparent complexity, clarity where there is confusion, oneness where there is apparent duality and love, understanding and hope where there is lostness, disillusion and all too often, despair.

  • The Three Universal Principles (Mind, Consciousness, Thought) as the Essence of Everything
  • All Living Creatures Also Utilize These Principles to Create their Personal and Unique Experience of Life One Thought at a Time
  • Every Human Being has Mental Health Within Them Now
  • People are Never Broken and Have Nothing Lacking
  • Diagnostic Labels are a description of WHERE a person is but never of WHO they ARE
  • There is One Cause and One Cure to All Mental Suffering

  • As Humans We are What we Seek, and Thus Are Guided by Universal Mind at All Times, and Thus Will Be Okay ‘No Matter What’

  • Psycho – Somatic Dysregulation is Experienced Internally Through Alterations in Mood and Tension, and Thought and Physically

What Others Are Saying About This Course

I just wanted to thank you for the amazing Mind, brain, body course!!
I went straight to doing some research into the connection between the Principles and pain relief!  My chronic back pain has gone and I wanted to see if I could recreate this in others and am having great results.  As your course went on I realized that no amount of medical knowledge, however impressive to others, can give me the confidence to do this, it comes from within and in my conversations with these volunteers they have all said how they somehow knew deep down that I just want them to get well and that has shifted something in them. Amazing!
