with Eva Beronius
If you’ve been practicing self-inquiry, mindfulness, and changing unconscious beliefs at the core, you already know that stepping into the observer and changing your relationship to your mind is a key component.
You’re probably already aware that trying to change your thinking from inside an identification with the mind gives very limited and short-lived results. You’ve most likely experienced the frustration of circling back to old emotional reactions and thought patterns for the hundredth time.
I know that I don’t need to educate you on the benefits of a regular meditation practice for establishing an observer point of view where you can bring calmness to your mind and emotions. And how it can allow you to operate from a whole different motherboard and have completely other experience of life and your own being.
Even though you have a deep desire to connect with yourself as consciousness,
the road to really establishing yourself operating from there seems to be anything but paved out.
You might have found yourself downloading a meditation app with the best intentions to get started. You sit down and are ready to dive deep. And the first thing that happens is your mind starts wandering. It doesn’t seem on board with your mission at all. And you get frustrated. And restless. And feel like a failure. Now your experience with meditation is connected to something frustrating and painful – who would want to spend time on that?
Or you started a practice, and it’s coming along, but you feel like you’re missing those deeper benefits people are raving about. You keep wondering if you’re doing it right. You know that there’s more and want to go below the surface layers.
Then you go watching Youtube videos and attending workshops, but you seem to get somewhat conflicting or vague guidance. Like “Let go of your thoughts” and “Simply allow your thoughts to be there.” Which one is it? And how the heck do I even DO that??, you might think. And then: “These people giving advice have obviously not been inside my mind…”. The lack of clear guidance on navigating the resistance and getting to where they point to just makes your mind more confused.
This is the point where most people give up on their deep desire to purify the experience of consciousness because their minds are making up reasons for it, often to protect them from the pain of potential failure.
We don’t want emotional pain. We try to avoid it at all costs. Our belief systems are built around trying to protect us from it. If we feel we might fail, and that is associated with shame and feeling worthless, our unconscious will make excuses about starting or back out of something the moment it becomes difficult or confusing.
If meditation seems hard or has the potential of failing, we won’t do it.
There’s so much left to explore, and the fun lays ahead.
Your mind WILL put out ideas and images that are obstacles in the way. If you have a map for them, you can navigate that resistance and turn the obstacles into growth opportunities.
Your Conscious SELF is already there waiting for you. You can connect with your core.
IF you have a clear understanding of the purpose of certain meditation practices and how to break them down,
AND if you’re aware of the traps:
(And why you don’t have to!)
Even though meditation is growing in popularity, few people are getting to the core of it. They get stuck in the identification with the mind and don’t know that the experience of consciousness takes place BEYOND THE MIND.
To get to consciousness, you need to know what to expect in terms of resistance. Your mind needs treats to keep going, balanced with a step-by-step guide on how to expand OUT from it.
And that’s exactly what I’d love to guide you through.
I’ve taken everything I’ve learned for the past ten years in my meditation practice combined with the Self Mastery work and what the Toltect call Dreaming, and turned it into a meditation course for motivated practitioners to go deeper than the regular meditation app or single technique workshop.
From my training with world-known teachers from different traditions, thousands of hours of my own exploration, and guiding clients, I’ve picked the practices that will take you more efficiently into the expansion of consciousness – together with the understanding of why.
20 weeks of powerful meditation journeys, weekly practices, and Live Sessions
Designed to prepare you and get the most out of the course. You'll have a clear intent with your practice and know how to let go of limiting beliefs and expectations if they show up. You'll have a good understanding of the effects of meditation on your brain. Leave this chapter feeling prepared and motivated for the journey.
You'll learn why it's important to shift out of survival and high-stress state - not just for your well-being but for accessing other brainwave states. And the practices to do so.
By seeing your attention as a powerful force, you can build the muscle of moving it around to different parts of your being. This will begin shifting you out of your thinking mind to the observer state. This muscle needs exercising to prepare you for the coming modules where we will expand our attention and shift the quality of it.
Now that you have a better hold of your attention, you'll use it to turn your attention 180 degrees to observe the observer. We're deepening the realization that you are more than your mind and getting familiar with that bigger sense of yourself.
To go deeper into awareness we need to shift out of thinking and into sensing. This will help you access parts of yourself beyond the conscious mind. You'll explore the relationship to your body and build a new one of trust and listening.
Now you're ready for new attention skills. You'll receive a practical technique to shift between narrow and open focus. It will give you an important reference to what shifting into awareness feels like in the body/mind.
Here you'll be deepening your sense of self as consciousness. How can you sense and perceive yourself non-phenomenally, as awareness? You'll be expanding your attention to the heart of your being.
You'll get the opportunity to identify and let go of limiting beliefs and fears about letting go of old attachments to identity. Realizing that the ego is merely an idea made up of thoughts. You leave this chapter feeling less afraid of letting go, and sensing the freedom in that.
You'll be connecting to the part of your being that will help you connect to the world. You'll learn about the electromagnetic field of your heart, coherence, and how to "open your heart" - activating and directing the force of this field for connection and heart-brain coherence.
From nothing comes everything. You'll understand more about life force and that you are it. Connecting through your heart, the void, and as consciousness allow you to expand to include everything. The whole ocean in one drop.
You'll get guidance on setting up a regular practice that can evolve as you keep growing. This will include using the skills from the course chapters as building blocks to customize and optimize your meditation practice for you. Now you'll be more than ready to continue the journey!
Throughout the course
I will hold monthly live sessions where I guide you deeper into dreaming. We'll go on journeys together and where you get to experience the power of group consciousness.
Throughout the course
If you have questions, you jump into one of our Q&A sessions where you can ask our experienced facilitators about techniques, experiences, resistance or insights you're having.
Throughout the course
On top of the practices you get access to a top-of-the-line community platform with our own exclusive are for all the Beyond the Mind members. In there you can read posts, share your insights and ask me questions. Access your practices from your browser or an iPhone/Android app.
The schedule for the live session will be posted here shortly.
This course is a combination of self-study practices to dive into on your own, and live sessions with guided group meditation and discussions. If you miss the live session, you can watch the recordings. I will be present in the online community group to answer your questions and give you extra guidance.
This course is opening for registration soon.
And I’ll let you know when the doors have opened.
That most likely means that you didn’t have one or a mix of the following things in place:
New neural pathways are created with repetition. If your first meditation experiences were connected with a feeling of boredom, restlessness, or overwhelm, then it’s not likely you’ll sit down again. More likely, belief programs of your mind have come up with reasons NOT to try again to protect you from uncomfortable emotions – with the effect that you probably won’t take on overcoming those initial reactions.
Good news: you’re in the right place. I won’t let you miss out on the benefits from meditation from a programmed belief – and neither should you. This course isn’t just a meditation workshop. It’s the roadmap to a successful meditation practice that teaches you what to practice when and build skills over time. You also learn to identify limiting beliefs that show up and what to do with them, so they don’t stop you.
I’ve designed this course to be completely adaptable to where you are, both with the level of experience with meditation and with your calendar. A common play by the inner judge is to compare us with an ideal of where we should be. Instead, this course is guiding you to start exactly where you are and build from there. I guide you through setting up a practice that works for you. I have clients who do a 5-min-meditation on the bathroom floor after brushing their teeth. If before you did 0 minutes of meditation, and now you do 5 minutes, that’s a win that will have an effect on your brain.
Also, notice how your mind’s belief program in this question is trying to project a past experience feeling on a future event. Underneath is likely protection against the feeling of failure. You’ve felt disappointment and failure before when not completing a course or not seen change, and the judge is warning you of feeling that again. The only way he/she knows how to do that is by stopping you from starting, and that’s probably not how you want to live your life.
You’ll get guidance on how to inventory and see these programs of beliefs as you do the course because I’ve had plenty of them myself. The game afoot is to use them as opportunities for growth.
Yes, and it’s good if you’ve meditated as well. Like I described in the previous answer, the course is adaptable to your current level of experience. If you already have a practice that you want to deepen, you’ll get help with expanding and focus your practice and to get to the core of the meditation experience.
If you have never meditated before but are aware of the benefits and want to access them, this course will help you start from the beginning and set up a sustainable, regular practice.
How can it help with both? Because I’m not teaching you a single meditation technique. I’m teaching you an approach to meditation that has a much bigger chance to stick with you.
What you do need is a level of self-awareness to observe your minds programs or the willingness to build that awareness through the practices.
Yes. And for anyone who’s got a brain and wants to make it work more efficiently, and has a longing to feel better.
Meditation can be a spiritual practice, but it’s also a practice for your emotions, mind, nervous system, focus, and attention. Meditation will bring your brain into coherence when done well, which means your brain will get more done with less effort. You will think clearer, make better decisions, and have creative ideas as well as being able to observe and regulate your reactions in different life situations.
I’m all about taking the woo-woo out of practices and show you how they really work. Sometimes I’ll do that with knowledge and understanding and, most times, by bringing you into an experience on your own. So that the effects of meditation are not just theory for your intellect, but alive and true in you, without words.
There’s nothing religious about this meditation course. Instead, I’m guiding you to step out of concepts and dogmas about what meditation should be and look like. But there’s a lot of heart, soul, and freedom – things that are shared by us all as humans and connect us rather than divides us.
When it comes to the sitting still part, you will get guidance to be curious and explore restlessness, boredom, and other reactions to meditation. I want you to have agency and direct your focus at your own will, and not let impulsive reactions run you. This will happen over time with practice.
Also, there’s a lot of freedom in the practices I teach. You’ll get to set up a practice that actually works for you. That might be walking meditations and short practices to get your nervous system accustomed to new states before you feel comfortable enough to sit for your meditation practice.
This course consists of practices you need to experience yourself as consciousness. I have studied many different techniques with different teachers over the course of ten years. The more I practice, the less important the names are and what’s left is the beautiful and powerful core of what I want to experience with my practice.
In this course, we’re dropping the fancy names and going right to the experience we’re after. Instead of going to a meditation workshop teaching you one specific technique, you’ll benefit from a mix that will:
Some of the participants will notice changes during the course, and for some, it will take a longer time. It all depends on your starting point but ALSO, how you’ve been programmed to measure results. If you’re someone working through a big obstacle with focusing, getting past that might be your big take away from the course. Is it a failure because you didn’t experience what you might have been expecting (yet)? No, you’re actually exactly where you need to be. If you set out to experience yourself as consciousness and a bunch of stuff shows up along that way – that is EXACTLY the stuff that you need to be present and curious about, and that will get you where you want to be when you learn to be with them. What you might see as obstacles are really the keys that will unlock your doors of progress.
This course will teach you how to deal with those obstacles efficiently. Also, there are worksheets provided where you track and measure changes you experience so we can measure progress in a smarter way that your inner judge might do.
And then, when we reach the end of the course – the only thing that’s finished is me providing you with new approaches. This is where your journey begins, and you have access to the course material indefinitely (and can download audios to keep for yourself for a lifetime). Now you can go back and spend time on the things you need to practice more. The roadmap is laid out and for you to walk and revisit. There is also a follow-up group with weekly practices to take part in if you enjoy and benefit from more guidance and the group setting.
However, if you realize that this course is not for you within 14 days of the course start (which will have given you the introduction plus the two first chapters), then email me. I’ll give you a refund on all of your investment except the $24 that the credit card processor keep to themselves.
Expressing something wordless in words will, of course, never fully reflect the experience itself, but I’ll do my best to answer. Experiencing consciousness (or God/truth/life force/divine/oneness…etc) for me is:
That journey goes inwards, and that’s where this course is taking you. Not by adding layers but removing beliefs in the way and pointing you to practices that will bring you a new experience of yourself, beyond the mind.
There might have been glimpses of unconditional love, of a sense of connectedness, or something bigger than you, inside of you. That woke you up to the possibility that there is more to you than meets the eye. You want to connect with and grow that experience, and you want to access it at will.
In this course I’ve included practices that will satisfy your souls wish to go beyond the mind. Practices that we normally would teach at events to give a deeper experience of consciousness.
The more you can feel your way through Teo, Dream the dream of Teo, the more you’ll get out of it. The week in Teo is not about thinking or figuring things out. The more you have practiced your Dreaming skills the more open you will come to the experience of Teo.
This is not your common meditation workshop, app, or YouTube video. I’ll guide you on what to practice when so you’ll build the skills needed for the long term benefits. You’ll get guidance on overcoming resistance, measuring progress, and approaching the course, already in the introduction module. I’ve set this course up so you’ll have a good meditation experience PLUS learn to navigate the learning process.
I got you covered. I’m teaching you how to build a practice that lasts by connecting it to joy and curiosity rather than struggle, punishment, and guilt. I’m also taking away concepts and dogmas about what meditation should be so you have the freedom to explore it in a way that works for you.
By practicing your focus and observer mode, spending time shifting your brain activity and brainwave frequency (like we do in this course), any personal development or inner growth work you might be doing will benefit you, and you’ll see faster results in other areas of your life.
With this course’s practices, you can shift your brain into a more harmonious way of functioning. That will quiet the mind chatter and make you feel more focused and creative.
Exploring on your own or with the help of books, videos, and single workshops can be wonderful. Still, sometimes you wonder if other ways would take you deeper into the experience, or faster past obstacles and resistance. In this course, we’re really getting to the heart and core of meditation with clear practical steps.
And are willing to put attention and energy on it.
You know this is your opportunity to do things differently than all the other times in your life. You are ready to meet what has felt scary before, only to realize that when met and welcomed it wasn’t as bad as you had dreamed it up to be.
Did you nod your head at 2-3 of the above?
Then you’re who I had in mind when I created this course. This is your journey.
My name is Eva Beronius and I found the Self Mastery work several years ago, after I’d tried different forms of therapy without getting the results I wanted. I soon started combining the Self Mastery work with meditation, somatic experiencing and other practices which accelerated the progress and changed my life completely. From a state of depression, PTSD and panic attacks to joy, peace and excitement about life, and a brain in coherence.
I’ve been leading Self Mastery Courses in Sweden, teaching retreats and workshops around the world and guiding people through online courses. I’m the founder of the highly praised online meditation course Beyond the Mind and co-founder of the Self Mastery Community.
My skills in both strategy and artistry have been combined in my work where you get to connect with a deeper sense of yourself, but in a way that the mind can be on board and understand why.
I’m looking forward to guiding you into the skills that made it possible for me to go Beyond the Mind and operate from consciousness.
