"If you correct your mind, the rest of your life will fall into place."
~ Lao Tzu

The aim of writing 'Transforming the Mind' was to seek key principles that can be applied by individuals to improve their lives. The approach taken was:

I don't claim to be the originator of any of these key principles; nevertheless my attempt to find the truth commonly held by many different theorists has proven to be of value to many people.

I wrote this book many years ago for my own interest and satisfaction, with no intention to publish it. When publishing on the Internet became easily accessible in '97, I put it online: it was immediately popular and since then over a million copies have been downloaded.

Insights drawn from 'Transforming the Mind' inform the personal development courses that I run and in particular, the Trans4mind Training online interactive video workshops. Our courses and workshops further develop many of the principles and exercises. They present in-depth self-help procedures that make a real difference when applied toward your personal development and spiritual transformation. The book serves to present their philosophical and psychological basis.

"Your book is the best book I have read in my life. The ultimate self help book. Hopefully many people will be changed by it. If everyone was rational to a great extent, then this world wouldn't have many problems that I can see." ~- Dustin Schroeder
"Without a doubt the universe is unfolding ... as it should. Whilst studying issues for an assignment on self-esteem and motivation I was led to your book Transforming the Mind. I have had the great fortune of working with and learning from the best speakers/authors in the world but until I came across your book none has had a more profound impact on my personal development and identity than your book. I have shared it with several people, and in discussions have found they have also been moved to work inwardly and truly apply "soul searching." Your book teaches step by step how to ask great questions of your self and of your mind and to expand one's thinking beyond ordinary realms of possibility and achieve results, both internally and externally. Thank you Peter." ~ R.B. (Australia)
"After reading your book 'Transforming The Mind,' I feel I've learnt a lot about my mannerisms, my behavior patterns... in general, about myself. I feel this is one book every person should read! It has helped me understand so much. Once again, thank you for this amazing book." ~ Sim
“I never found anywhere else such a complete, detailed and clear synthesis for transformational psychology as your book, Transforming the Mind. Both for theory and even for the practice. I was deluded by the ‘mystic’ approach to self-knowledge. Very often the sayings of the sages were misunderstood. You brought a light to a new scientific objective/subjective approach.” ~ Marco
There's a lot of complementary information in further sections of the Trans4mind web site. Please take a look at the Emotional Intelligence site - I collected the best information available concerning emotions, to understand what they are and where they come from, their great value in energizing our dreams and connecting us with intuitive wisdom, and how to clear and release emotions that have outstayed their welcome. I believe it's a useful guide when seeking to help yourself and others, and in understanding this important subject in order to teach your children how to recognize and deal with their feelings.

The Know Your Own Mind personality questionnaire provides the tools for a wide-ranging analysis of your personality, so you can know yourself better. Covering the areas of Introversion/Extraversion, Emotional Stability, Determinism, Sexuality and Social & Political Attitudes, it will help you see yourself - your mental, emotional and behavioral strengths and weaknesses - in a more objective light.

You'll find all kinds of further information in our Resources section - something to suit everyone's personal growth needs.


Daring to be Yourself

Daring to be Yourself The aim of this book is to help you achieve a 'wide-awake' state of consciousness, with integrated use of left and right brain abilities, forming the bedrock for breakthroughs in personal consciousness and spiritual insight. The practice is based on the premise that we have learned disabilities that set boundaries to our action and knowing. But no one need accept that they must remain as they were shaped by their hereditary body-mind and by the conditioning of their childhood and culture.

This 264-page eBook is like a "best of" the Trans4mind site, all brought together for your convenience. But much more than that, it's also an incredibly powerful program for personal growth. Remove the barriers to self-knowledge and reveal your full potential with this step-by-step approach.

"I realize many people use praise in ways that sound frivolous...but I must tell you that your book has changed my life AND I mean that in all ways. I found the entire work wonderfully upbeat, readable and valuable! It really was quite a wakeup call. In the midst of my "trials and tribulations" I had failed to be "me." Anyway, this "talk with you" really did change my life. Thank you! I needed this kind of "kick in the pants." It worked. WOW! You made a huge difference in my world."–Becky, USA
