If you're stuck in your meditation, yoga, or mindfulness practice, this course is for you.
I've been there myself. Meditation used to be an activity where I sat down and closed my eyes. Yoga was about poses and breathing. Mindfulness was about watching the mind. It all worked... for a while. But then I reached a point where I couldn't go any further. It felt like there was some kind of wall, some kind of limit. It felt like there were two worlds: the world out there and the world in here. I had an effective practice, but it was still a practice. It wasn't yet a way of living. It wasn't seamless.
I wondered what all the people were talking about when they talked about enlightenment, waking up, and knowing oneself. I had been surrounded by many such people while growing up. What exactly were they referring to? Glimpses weren't enough. It was frustrating. Suffocating.
That all changed one day when the sense of identity and experience of the world shifted. Radically. Meditation, yoga, and mindfulness were no longer activities that I did, but simply processes within me. Their fixed boundaries disappeared. That shift is what we systematically capture in this course, step-by-step.
Read on to see what makes this course different from any other course you can take.
Meditation, yoga, and mindfulness are only different on the outside.
Yoga comes from the root word yuj which means unite. Yoga is that which unites the individual personality with its greater being—the being you, me, and all of us share. In other words, yoga breaks down walls. This is also exactly what meditation does. In fact, meditation itself is one type of yoga. Mindfulness is a kind of yoga as well. By becoming mindful, the mind becomes less distracted and eventually still. Its boundaries start dissolving.
Different beginnings, same ending.
In the beginning stages, yoga appeals to certain people, meditation appeals to others, and mindfulness to yet others. As you progress, yoga, meditation, and mindfulness converge. You see that you can't progress in yoga without being meditative and mindful, and you see that meditation and mindfulness can be influenced by the positioning of the body. All three go hand in hand. Walls break down. They become the way you live life. You become seamless.
The heart of meditation, yoga, and mindfulness is seamlessness.
Will this course work if you prefer yoga? Yes. Will it work if you prefer meditation? Yes. How about mindfulness? Yes. The core of each of these is the same. And since you've already gained experience with an awareness practice, you'll be able to recognize and develop the common core. You will recognize and experience your seamless wholeness.
How does this course work?
We start by engaging and opening up the mind, instead of ignoring it or fighting it. Our minds have been conditioned over the years to hold beliefs that limit how we experience ourselves and the world. These beliefs are usually pushed aside in meditation. The problem is that once meditation is over, the beliefs can come back, clouding our experience again.
In this course, we begin by looking directly at the prevailing beliefs about who we are and what we're made of, and how those beliefs developed in our society. We look right through them and deconstruct them. That means that our vision and understanding remains clear even after meditation. Meditation goes from a practice to a way of living.
As the mind opens up, we explore its new perspective with guided, advanced meditations. The meditations are about an hour long, sometimes more. There are three meditations, one for each layer of the human being—physical, mental, and energetic. You won't find meditations like these anywhere else, because I created them based on my own experience, not based on a textbook or something I found online. The meditations guide you into experiencing your own bodies in a subtler, more expansive way. They engage mindfulness, meditation, and yogic practices—three rivers that flow into the same ocean of awareness.

As a child, Anoop was surrounded by the ancient Indian teachings of Advaita Vedanta (philosophy of non-duality). He began to see that life could be lived from two perspectives—as a character in a story, and as something ineffable, beyond all stories. He experimented with this and discovered realms of experience that are not found in the textbooks we study. After going to medical school and training in emergency medicine, Anoop found that a deeper understanding of healing and human nature needed to be brought to light. He began writing and speaking on the topic of self-awareness and consciousness, focusing on how these can transform our experience of daily living. Anoop has collaborated with leading personalities in sharing this with audiences worldwide.
