How's Your Sanity?

Yes, we're all stuck at home and social distancing.

Does that mean we get depressed and feel sorry for ourselves or can we look at this time as an opportunity to grow?

It's time to take matters into our own hands and do things that better our lot in life.

This is your chance to get healthy, find focus, boost your energy levels, and choose the life you want.

Join me for LIVE Instruction and Guidance

I've been inspired to teach this course as I've witnessed so much psychological distress in the community since quarantine hit.

The funny thing is that before this pandemic, most people were complaining about not having enough time. Now they've got too much of it on their hands. Which one is it?

Now is the time to pick up a meditation practice. Now is the time to do your yoga and get fit. Now is the time to catch your breath and reinvent yourself. Now is the time to take care of YOU.

Nothing Can Stop You

Resilience happens on a cellular level but it's also built into your character. You need to work on your mindset and create an operating system that supports a stronger version of you.

There is a better way...

A way for you to not just survive, but thrive in this new “age of overwhelm.”

A way for you to finally breathe deep, relax, feel calm, nourished and gain clarity on who you are, what you want and where you want to go.

A way to effortlessly integrate the powerful teachings of my spiritual teachers into your modern life.

I call it...the way of the Urban Monk and I invite you to join us.

A LIVE 6 Week Course Designed to Help You Renew Yourself on All Levels

Week 1 - 5/20/20

Reset your Mindset

We start the course by reseting the "operating system" that may be leading to bad habits and self sabotage. It's all about a healthy mindset that will carry you forward in life and many of us inherited toxic memes (or mental viruses) from our folks.

Resilience and Vitality come from daily actions that we alone have to take. That means setting a mental framework that allows for good behavior and positive habits. In this first week, we examine which habits that need to go and replace them with healthy swaps that we will take on in the next six weeks.

Week 2 - 5/27/20

Boosting Your Vitality

There's no change without energy. Energy comes from the Vitality of our system. This week, we work to optimize diet, exercise, sleep, and mindset to maximize the amount of available energy in our lives.

We'll need this energy to clear out the cobwebs and renew ourselves so we need to invest it forward into our lives. The boost in energy we get this week will be the needed ingredient to power the transformation that's in store for us over the next few weeks. Let's tune up so we can tune in and make some lasting change.

Week 3 - 6/3/20

Clearing Mental Indigestion

How much time do you normally get to sit around and actually think about things? Most of us have been so busy that there's a mental backlog in our lives. We're going to take some time this week and "chew on" undigested thoughts that have been weighing us down.

Grab your journal as we go through various exercises to clear some mental cobwebs and reconcile where our head is at with our current circumstances. This shutdown has given us some time to catch up on the backlog of mental stagnation and now's the time to get clear headed.

Week 4 - 6/10/20

Emotional Healing

Emotions are hard. We tend to avoid the ones that don't feel good. Fast forward a few decades and we're about to pop. This week, we're going to learn some powerful healing techniques to clear emotional blockages and rid ourselves of the heavy burden of carrying the past around with us.

There are several tools you'll be equipped with this week that'll help you release the pressure so you can feel whole again. Too much charged emotional energy blocks the free flow of energy in our lives. If you've been stuck, this is where we need to mend next.

Week 5 - 6/17/20

Spiritual Renewal

Hardly anyone is doing spiritual purification practices anymore. This may be why the world looks the way it does. This week, we're going to learn powerful transformational practices that'll help us align with Higher Self and connect back to the Source. This includes forgiveness, atonement, and spiritual cleansing technques.

All practices come from clean lineages that connect with The Once That Breathes Us...without going into any specific denomination or faith. We stay faith-agnostic so everyone can participate and heal.

Week 6 - 6/24/20

A Fresh Start

Now that we've cleared the past and can see through the cobwebs, this week we map out the life we really want and start making plans to take specific action in that direction. We'll examine the specific plants in your "Life Garden" and work to set a plan towards watering them all.

With a solid vision for your future, you now have focus and clarity backed with Vitality to actually get you there. We'll help you make your own plan and commit to taking good care of yourself so your life is a reflection of your inner state- peaceful and abundant.

Frequently Asked Questions—

What is the time commitment?

The live course will be one hour a week with thirty minutes of Q&A with Dr Pedram. I’ll be giving you homework each week that may take an addition 1-3 hours.

Will You Take Questions?

The beauty of a live course is that I’ll leave 30 minutes after each weekly module to answer questions and hang with my students.

Can I access the course material from my phone?

Absolutely! The members area can be easily accessed from any device.

What format do the courses take? Can I interact with the instructors?

You’ll have 24/7 access to material immediately after it is recorded LIVE. From there, my team strips the audio and makes transcripts for you. Any additional resources will be created and uploaded in the following weeks.

If I'm having trouble navigating the members area, is there someone who can help me?

Our customer service team is hands on and available to answer any questions you have. The member’s area is intuitive and easy to use but we’re here for you if you have any issues, whatsoever.
