Comments from Workshop Participants

"This was a phenomenal course and really so relevant to modern life. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us Peter". — Christopher, United Kingdom

"I just want to say thank you... I feel blessed for the opportunity I've had to follow Peter in this course, to be so helpfully guided. Someone mentioned his kindness and authenticity, I couldn't agree more! And yes, "effortless" is the very word... what a relief!" — Corinne, Switzerland

"Whilst the meditation techniques were a very timely and useful, what was most valuable was getting insights on how better to apply meditation to improve my approach to life's challenges. Many thanks". — Rory, United Kingdom

"The distillation of Peter’s work reflects the base of many spiritual practices giving further insight when journey in the magnificent world of spirituality. This simple yet profound practice is giving the non initiate and the veterans alike some very valuable pointers for dealing with the ups and downs of life. The truth in this teaching will lead you to great discovery". — Sébastien, Canada

"Thank you Peter for a wonderfully designed workshop and for the profound content. It gently reminded me of what I already know and presented more food for thought.. I have left with some powerful tools to support me in my continuing journey". — Gwen, Australia

"My appreciation for this course to Peter Russell and Bob and Marina Felix. It seems to me that effortlessness allows peace to flow. In the world of form it can be pleasant to "work" towards a goal in whatever field one is interested in, but if it becomes a struggle, for whatever reason, the enjoyment and likelihood of satisfaction and success is diminished. On the level of being, the looking outside - the ego - the , well, effort, interrupts the flow of inner peace. I enjoyed this course quite a bit. Thanks". — Dara, USA

"The techniques have been so helpful to me because they allow me to relax into the practice, and to feel more natural with it, with whatever is happening, and so much trying to fulfill an ideal. But most important, even though is virtual connection, I could feel the kindness and authenticity of Peter Russell, and for me this is a different connection, because the trasnmission of the teachings comes straight to my heart. Thank you!!". — Celia, Mexico

"Peter has an effective and insightful way of making simple and clear what can often seem complex and intricate. I was introduced to Peter's work by a mentor and continue to practice his "How to Meditate without even trying" methodology through my journey to self awareness and self management. This workshop provides additional insights into self awareness and again delivered in an easy to understand format which is characteristic of Peter Russell..". — Albert, USA

"It has been a pure delight! The perfect mixture of the theory and practical guidance". — Mateja, Slovenia

"Peter is a humble, genuine, no-frills kind of person, and his teaching is very deep and yet straight forward. Taking this course actually turned out to be pivotal for me. Relaxation is a kind of trap door into our true being, and taking this course opened the trap door for me. I highly recommend it". — Colleen, USA

"With grace and subtlety, Mr. Russell guides an exploration of the mind and the possibility of its management, along the way providing inquiries, techniques and meditations with which we may not only glimpse our true nature, but wake up to the eternal Reality found by answering the age-old question at the core of the spiritual search: “Who Am I”. And That, combined with the deeper understanding of mind and other insights revealed during the three week course, lays a foundation for inner knowing, love, peace, and the very essence found only at the Source of our being, to Awaken and unfold. It may be that I was simply “ripe” for this teaching, but if you too are willing to step back from the world for a bit, relax, soften, and open your heart, perhaps in the final analysis you will find the peace of mind every person wishes for. I wish you well…". — Gary, USA

"Peter's approaches to meditation are highly effective. Presentation was concise and relevant. No digressions into unprovable belief system to lend weight to what is being discussed. The truth instead being demonstrated practically in the guided meditations". — Daryl, Australia

"I found the guided and practice meditations very helpful. I was able to reach some very deep levels of relaxation and peace. GlideWing is top shelf. I was pleased with the ease, responsiveness and organization". — Claire, USA

"Peter's approach to this formless subject is excellent! It has clarified and taken me deeper into my own practice. The meditations and guided practices were effortless and yet, very meaningful. Thanks, Peter". — Carolynne, USA

Effortless Being

Meditations for Freedom, Joy and Peace in the Midst of Life

To be announced

A three-week online workshop with personal support and mentoring provided by Peter Russell

After decades of research in the field of consciousness, the Cambridge-educated scientist turned renowned spiritual teacher, Peter Russell, reveals his uniquely transformative method of learning to live with a sense of Freedom, Joy and Peace.

Effortless Being

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?

Meditations for Freedom, Joy and Peace in the Midst of Life

A rare opportunity to receive personal mentoring
from Peter Russell for the duration of the workshop

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, exercises and forum discussions, 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.

During the three weeks of the workshop, Peter Russell will be there to support you, provide personal advice and answer your questions through our workshop forums and private messaging system.
