Dr. Charles Tart




Comments from Workshop Participants

A wonderful workshop, structured in a masterful way which has led me to change my whole understanding of meditation, and given me a path to being able to actually do it after nearly 40 years of trying this and that technique, only to get back into thinking again and deciding the technique was at fault and looking for yet another way... This is a wonderful concise course and the best meditation instruction I have ever received, and I will not hesitate to recommend it to friends and clients. I am so excited and energised by what I have learned! P.S I have also learned a really doable way to bridge my meditation experiences into everyday life with "sensing, looking, listening" – awesome!” — Julie, U.K.


“I have been familiar with Dr. Tart since reading two of his original books that I found excellent. I found this workshop one of the clearest expressions of these "methods"... More importantly, Dr. Tart touched me as a genuine and loving person, something not gleaned in the written word, and someone that depicts the fruit of the spiritual journey. I recommend this workshop to anyone interested in self discovery and living a meaningful and more true life.” — Anand, U.S.


How a simple and short practice can be most effective to change the mood of the day into a lighter and brighter one!” — Rosa, Spain


Having the chance to work at my timing and pace with the material and practices works so well for me living overseas. I enjoyed the science married with spirituality and Dr. Tart's questioning mind reminded me to really own what I take into my life by questioning it thoroughly and honestly myself. Moving from that place into the Mindfulness teachings resulted in me owning my experience in a very tangible way.” — Corry , Japan


“This course has been an eye opener and game changer for me! I am integrating the practice in my daily life.. Thank You!” — Christopher, U.S.


“I liked a lot bringing mindfulness to "real" life in such a simple and effective way.” — Leticia, Mexico


“I find Dr Tart's even-handed treatment of scientific and spiritual approaches rare and special. The Course's design, involving the introduction of three particular techniques in sequence, is mastery. The teacher's presentation of each technique is clear and appealing.” — Jeremy, Switzerland


“This course was engaging and has provided excellent skills, personal testimony and insight that can be useful in all areas of life. Practical. I thank you all so much as taking the classes it feels like "working together" rather than being instructed.” — Mary, U.S.


“The tools provided in this workshop are simple and the same time most effective. I was especially impressed by the non-dogmatic way of teaching.” — Florian, Germany


“Dr. Tart is - for me - the best kind of teacher in this arena. Open-minded, helpful, insightful, but not too "new age-y" which can be unappealing and seem very smoke-and-mirrors-ish.” — Fredye, U.S.


“Well structured course, clear instruction with appropriate humour. Strongly recommended even for the more experienced meditator as a different approach is always beneficial.” — Rob, Australia


“Thank you. This progressive, simple and step-by-step approach is very interesting, rich and insightful. The content of this workshop, generously shared by Dr Tart, will definitely improve and upgrade my daily practice in the following weeks. Gratitude.” — Esther, Canada


“The course seems to be designed for new practitioners, but as a life-long meditator I still found Dr. Tart's wisdom and his way of presenting the techniques and his experience to be very satisfying -- deep and real and valuable.” — Thalia, U.S.


“I chose this workshop especially because I was curious to learn how to become mindful in every day life besides the daily meditation practice. As a first result I noticed an expansion and presence while applying the sensing, feeling, listening practice. It seems like a first taste of what it might feel like when the judging mind ceases and the objects are seen as equals. How peaceful.” — Andrea, Germany


“This is the first course I have taken with Glidewing. It is a very well put together web vehicle. I felt I was involved and engaged - not just navigating a web site and static content.”


“It gave me more strength to deal with everyday affairs, and to be more present during meditation.” — Antonio, Spain


“I have been involved in a variety of meditation practices with dead and living teachers. Nothing beats being connected to other human beings. I have taken some useless courses but this was helpful and worthwhile. Thanks to all those involved.” — Mary, U.S.

Mindfulness is about learning to Wake Up

Do you often find yourself stressed or anxious? Do you feel that your life is a series of challenges with only brief respites in between? And no matter how hard you try, there always seem to be more problems for you to deal with? In our modern fast-paced society many of us feel this way. We can begin to change this with a contemporary form of an ancient practice called Mindfulness Meditation. For centuries, various forms of this meditation have been used not only by spiritual practitioners for stilling the mind and attaining deeper wisdom and enlightenment but by many ordinary people looking for more understanding of and harmonious operation of their minds.

In this online workshop, the renowned author and scientist, Dr. Charles Tart, will share with you some of the most effective Mindfulness Meditation techniques, and lead you, step by step, into the peaceful sanctuary of your inner being. Most importantly, emphasized by Dr. Tart, you will learn how to integrate these mindfulness practices into your every day life and apply them in the most challenging life-situations. Dr. Tart focuses on the importance of bringing greater awareness, clarity and equanimity into your ordinary life situations, not just at special times of formal meditation.

Dr. Charles Tart, Professor Emeritus at the University of California, Davis, is a pioneer and a celebrated authority on mind and consciousness, author of dozens of scientific publications and books, including highly-regarded books on Mindfulness, including “Living the Mindful Life” and “Mind Science: Meditation Training for Practical People”. His 1969 Altered States of Consciousness book is considered a classic, stimulating the scientific study of consciousness. Dr Tart is a long-practicing student of Buddhism and Gurdjieff scholar. A prominent scientist himself, as well as a spiritual practitioner, no particular religious/spiritual beliefs are needed to benefit from Dr. Tart’s version of mindfulness training. Please note that Dr. Tart has retired and will not be personally participating in this course.
