Week 1: Begins with the five senses (which are often taken for granted) and then moves into the further senses we have, and how these extra senses can affect one’s reality.
Week 2: Reality, the perception of reality, the functions of the mind and the way the mind shapes our reality is looked at. As is the fact that we are not our minds. With this awareness, the question ‘who are we?’ naturally arises.
Week 3: Looks at how the idea of love and eternal truth serve as cornerstones to a mature state of consciousness, where one is able to feel the guiding forces of a power greater then themselves. Are there forces guiding us as the Jedi is guided by ‘The Force?’ How is this greater force designed to help and support us along our journey?
Week 4: Looks at how the various cultures and traditions work with the idea of non-dual consciousness; the notion that we are all connected and part of a greater whole. How to partake in this greater whole is discussed and explored.
Week 5: Concentrates on the importance of personal responsibility and how this creates personal transformation.
