Behind all our endeavors lies the desire to be happy, to feel content, relaxed, and at ease. No one wants to be in pain or to suffer unnecessarily. This is our true bottom line. Why then, are we so seldom at peace?

How often do you find yourself worried, anxious, or frustrated, thinking “if only I get through this next event or problem, then I will be able to finally relax!”? But why do the problems never end and the pattern seems to repeat again and again?

We have many responsibilities, our days are busy and hectic, to-do lists are getting longer. But do we really have to live in a state of stress and worry in order to accomplish everything?

Throughout history, there have been those who’ve discovered a timeless truth about human consciousness: our Natural Mind — our true Self — is where peace and contentment arise naturally and effortlessly. We don’t need to do or get anything to find peace of mind. It is just a matter of learning how to return to our true Self. The beauty of this approach is that nothing needs to be changed or eliminated. It is simply relaxing back into our natural state of Effortless Being.

Through guided meditations and exercises, you will learn to discover the joy of living free from worry and stress and find an inner freedom, and peace of mind that is not dependent on events and circumstances of your life. An inner freedom and peace that we can return to again and again.

In this section, Peter will introduce the State of Natural Mind and provide a brief personal biography.

About the Guide:
Peter Russell is a fellow of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, of The World Business Academy and of The Findhorn Foundation, and an Honorary Member of The Club of Budapest. At Cambridge University (UK), he studied mathematics and theoretical physics. Then, as he became increasingly fascinated by the mysteries of the human mind he changed to experimental psychology. Pursuing this interest, he traveled to India to study meditation and eastern philosophy, and on his return took up the first research post ever offered in Britain on the psychology of meditation. In the 1970s, he was one of the first people to introduce human potential seminars into the corporate field, and for twenty years ran programs for senior management on creativity, stress management, personal development, and sustainable development. Clients have included IBM, Apple, Digital, American Express, Barclays Bank, Swedish Telecom, ICI, Shell Oil and British Petroleum. In 1982 he coined the term "global brain" with his 1980s bestseller of the same name in which he predicted the Internet and the impact it would have. His many books include The Global Brain, The TM Technique, The Upanishads, The Brain Book, The Creative Manager, The Consciousness Revolution, Waking Up in Time, and From Science to God. As one of the more revolutionary futurists Peter Russell has been a keynote speaker at many international conferences, in Europe, Japan and the USA. His principal interest is the deeper, spiritual significance of the times we are passing through. His work seeks to distill the essence of the world's spiritual traditions and present it in ways relevant to the current times. View full bio
