www.christianleeby.com – I met Christian at the 2016 Trout Lake seminar in WA where he gave a teachings on his Calm To The Core, mindset practice. The process is in total alignment with the teachings of Vedanta with particular focus on values, gratitude, knowledge, and a process of creating determinations (statements) which align your mind/thoughts with your values, your vision and transform your challenges. Think of your mind as a habit machine that servers up involuntary thoughts based on your past conditioning. The mindset practice puts you in the driver’s seat by reconditioning the mind to serve up thoughts that pave the pathway to moksha.
