The Power of Awareness: Online Course Review

If you are really looking to transform your life in whatever way that may mean for you, I cannot think of a better way to start the new year off than participating in the Power of Awareness Online Course

With a reduction in the course fee, your outlay over 7 weeks is only $6.00 a day.

When you look at it like that, I think that’s a very small price to pay to invest in yourself and ultimately experience and live a better life. 

So, with that, I’ve researched the course developed and delivered by renowned mindfulness experts and teachers Jack Kornfield and Tara Brach (more about the teachers below) and I’ve looked at what some of their past 17,000 course participants have had to say and it looks good from where I stand.

Their approach resonates with me.  I feel myself nodding ‘yes’ to the words they use in describing the course.  They speak of discovering the transformative, healing power of mindful awareness and dramatically shifting the experience of your life, the people in it, and the world itself.

I personally have experienced a dramatic shift in my life through mindfulness and therefore I know what they say to be true.

If you are dedicated to the process (even with a few little hiccups here and there – it happens to everyone), you too will experience this transformation.

A key for me when I am looking at different courses is to recognise when I am not intellectualising and instead just feel a sense of ‘rightness’, a ‘knowing’.  I can say that I felt that with this course.

Let’s now get to the nuts and bolts of the course.

A little more about the teachers


If you don’t know, Jack Kornfield has been around for decades now, teaching meditation globally since 1974 and is one of the key teachers to introduce mindfulness to the West.   His books have sold 1.5 million copies and he holds a PhD in clinical psychology.

And Tara Brach, well she’s equally credible with her weekly podcasts being downloaded over 1.5 MILLION TIMES EACH MONTH, teaching meditation internationally and also holding a PhD in Clinical Psychology.

Both teachers have quite a following and have had for many years and so this has to instil a sense of trust and we can assume a level of quality in what they provide given their longevity when considering whether or not to jump in feet first.

Words of Encouragement – Once you know it, you can’t un-know it and that’s the beauty!


You are the owl, be the owl

I have been a customer of many programs and courses in my life and I have to say that those dedicated to meditation, mindfulness and awareness have been the most beneficial to me in enhancing my own life and improving my general sense of wellbeing.

And, if I ever get off track (which happens to most of us and often more so when things are going well, we may cast our practise aside), I know it’s because I am not being mindful or aware.

But I also know that this is the way back and so I reintroduce it back into my life if I have been distracted by life for a little while.

It’s my go to and it’s the only go to that can and will bring peace, freedom and real joy into your life.

The effects are immediate and can be sustained with focus.  I am as gentle as I can be with myself even if I might take a step back or two.  I would encourage you to be gentle with yourself too.

If I can coin a phrase that explains my experience perfectly “everything changed, yet nothing changed”!  A little cryptic perhaps, but I’m sure you will know what I mean if you decide to do the course.

Once you have the knowledge, you can never un-know it and that’s the beauty – thank goodness for that.

I would encourage you to take the plunge.  I can sincerely say, you won’t regret it!  Click here to enrol now.

Go forth with ease and just be!
