Trans4mind advocates maintaining an open mind and is not affiliated to any particular religion or organization. But we do take an holistic approach which includes the spiritual dimension of our lives. Learn more...

So let's begin...

Learn how you can live a happier and more fulfilling life, through exercising free choice, seeing objective truth, being in touch with your inner knowing and authentic values, and realizing the highest degree of purpose. Lots of super advice on this page: How to Stop Worrying and Start Living, which presents a range of strategies designed to conquer melancholy, to help you get your life pointed in the direction you want, and to increase the pleasure you get from living each and every day.

Life is always changing, growing and evolving - or at least it needs to be, to achieve our potential, to attain our purposes in life. This means everyone experiences transitions in their life, that they may enter enthusiastically, enter with fear and trepidation, or put aside to another time and just continue on the safe course as before. However, in modern life change and growth are happening more quickly, and are often forced upon us, so that each of us will face many transitions in the course of a lifetime. See The Ins and Outs of Life Transitions for a description of the life challenges we all face and the way forward to a better life using the Resources at Trans4mind. And and lots more articles by Peter Shepherd are contained in the Inside Out Blog, covering the key issues of personal growth.

Your Inner Truth is a phenomenal range of journaling tools to help you find the truth of your situation, based on your inner knowing. You may feel stressed, or confused, there may be a lot going on and choices to make that seem a bit overwhelming.

Background to Trans4mind


Read on for an overview of the site, where we're coming from and what we hope to achieve...

We've been online since 1997 and we've built up a large collection of resources to help you in your personal growth - and to move forward on your spiritual path as well. The site was originally formed to publish Peter Shepherd's book Transforming the Mind online. Hence the domain name "trans4mind." Over the years 1,000,000+ copies have been downloaded.

Trans4mind was founded by Peter Shepherd, who lives in the center of France. Peter is English and his wife Nicole is French, so we also have a French version of the site. Nicole is an educator of young children and introduces the principles of emotional intelligence to infants. Peter's background is psychotherapy but since 1997 Peter has worked full-time in the personal development field and in particular, on the Trans4mind site.

We also have versions of Trans4mind available for Hungary and India.

Daring to Be Yourself

Each of us is a unique individual - both natively and because we have different experiences, education, upbringing and culture. On our learning path, we may have advanced well in some areas - such as health and wellbeing, communication and relationship skills, mental capacity, emotional maturity, creative and intuitive skills, and spiritual awareness - and we may still have a lot to do in others. So, we each have widely varying needs. We aim to cater for your needs in the range of facilities we offer, our Tools for Transformation.

When we are actually ourselves, fully conscious and awake to the present moment, not telling ourselves any lies -- in that state the past is actually not affecting us, nor is fear of what the future may bring. Our attention is grounded by the present objective environment, rather than dominated by past memories or future expectations. Our vision is not obscured by fears. We can see our situation more clearly, free of the conditioning and assumptions that we have been led to base our lives on. And we are free and motivated to achieve exciting new goals that reflect our true inner nature and life purposes. That is the aim of personal growth work.

We wish you every success in your life and your path ahead!
