Consciousness: A New Paradigm

Special live master class with Dr. Tony Nader!

December 7–December 13  •  1:00–3:00 pm US Eastern Time  •  14 lessons (7 sessions, 2 lessons each)

Sessions will also be recorded so that participants in all parts of the world can watch at their convenience.

How can I be happier? What is my purpose in life? How can I achieve my fullest potential? How can I help make the world a better place?

Just about everyone asks these questions, and they’re becoming more important all the time.

Dr. Tony Nader brings breakthrough answers to these questions. He starts with three profound insights into the nature of life:

  • The essence of all life — our own life and the life of the universe — is consciousness. Everything is made out of consciousness.
  • Consciousness can be developed, expanded — easily and effortlessly.
  • Developing consciousness is the key to everything good in life — to happiness and health, to success and social harmony, to world peace.
