About This Class

I have studied Eastern Philosophy and religious traditions my entire adult life and have found them to be very useful and applicable in the modern world.

For literally hundreds of thousands of years, human beings have been confronted with the problems of survival, raising children, developing relationships, and overcoming endless obstacles on a daily basis. 

The greatest thinkers of the past have much to teach us about how to deal with these problems psychologically and emotionally. In many cases, they have given us very specific examples and teach us how to apply these strategies to our everyday lives.

Eastern Philosophy can help you:

1. Reduce stress

2. Reduce worry

3. Live a more fulfilled life

4. Be happier

5. Accomplish your goals more easily

6. Overcome life's challenges more easily

7. Improve your relationships

8. The list goes on...

In this course we will cover all of the above and look at how you can apply the teachings of some of the greatest minds in history to your everyday life.

See you in the course!
