For many of us our daily activity manages to inhibit, rather than enhance experiencing the intimate grandeur of living an enlightened life. Try as we might, we can be swept away during the day with continually referencing the clock and calendar for the choices we make and the emotions we feel. Embracing an enlightened life isn’t so much a learning process, as it is a remembering process. While it can be as simple as shifting from a state of “doing” to a state of “being,” the more entrenched we are in our routines and roles, the more challenging it can become to let go and remember our true nature – a state of enlightenment. Fortunately for most highly creative and passionate individuals the veil between our reason and the wild abandon of living an enlightened life is quite thin. It’s much easier for us as entrepreneurs, innovators, entertainers, artists, scientists, visionaries, and others with a TypeE personality, to recognize and enter the gap that leads to the state of being where enlightenment resides than it is for most other people. Enlightenment Enlightenment, as defined in Wikipedia, is “the full comprehension of a situation.” It goes on to say that in spiritual terms it’s a, “…spiritual revelation or deep insight into the meaning and purpose of all things, communication with or understanding of the Mind of God, profound spiritual understanding or a fundamentally changed consciousness whereby everything is perceived as a unity.”
|I love this definition. It suggests that enlightenment is either a state of full comprehension or an understanding of the mind of God, which I would think is fairly incomprehensible. So which is it? Well, let’s just say that for now, it’s both, which is why the definition of enlightenment perfectly portrays those individuals with a TypeE personality. Ultimately enlightenment can be thought of as a foundational state. When your mind is quiet and your heart is at peace, enlightenment is the state that surrounds you, nurtures you and strengthens you. From this place of joy and inner peace you can learn to bring heaven down to earth in very practical ways. You’ll watch in amazement as your dreams, your business, yourself, begin to grow, bud, and blossom into a life that you knew was always possible. The TypeEs Journey In the beginning of a TypeE’s journey there is almost always a “full comprehension” of any situation they are in. As they eventually enter a more spiritual stage, understanding gives way to a deeper insight and connection with life that is far beyond any illusion of comprehension. They shift from “doing,” as their primary state, to “being.” In fact, it’s only a matter of time before the deepest stage in a TypeE’s life, the spiritual stage, ushers them into an entirely new way of looking at themselves, their family, their business, their community and the world. This third stage of a TypeE’s life journey, Living Beyond the Edge, is the focus of this newest course, The Entrepreneur’s Guide to Enlightenment is the culmination of over twenty years of field research and clinical practice from working with more than ten thousand successful entrepreneurs, entertainers, artists and other highly creative, passionate people.|
As I began to apply all I’d learned from working with these individuals, I found myself rubbing shoulders with a very practical kind of enlightenment. There’s an old saying that before you attain enlightenment, you chop wood carry water. And after you gain enlightenment, you chop wood carry water. At its roots, enlightenment is a very practical, efficient and miraculous way of living your life. This brought me to my next “What if?” What if I began to share what was usually hidden behind the practical end of heightened creativity? It wasn’t hidden because it was a secret, but because most TypeE’s don’t realize it’s there. So I decided to design a course that would specifically address a TypeE’s access to living an enlightened life. I believe that the universe operates in matching funds. In other words, as soon as you put up your half and start taking action on an idea, the universe puts up the other half. In this case, the other half was in the form of Heidi Nobantu Saul, a TypeE Transator who specializes in program development and process design. It comes as no surprise that she was just making the leap into the next phase of her life, landing her right in the middle of all things TypeE. Together we began forming the framework of this course by culling the information and discoveries gleaned from the previous six month version. Then Heidi went to work as only a stellar TypeE Translator can. She took my notes, stories and rambling thoughts and added her own insights and knowledge, especially in the integration and practice components. What was created is the clear, concise practical course and process you see before you.
We knew that by anchoring the mental, emotional and physical information into the body’s physiology through the use of a variety of biofeedback instrumentation and guided imagery exercises deeper insights and greater practical applications within one’s personal and professional lives would occur. To further enhance the course and its application to everyday life, we felt a small group of like-minded individuals, learning and sharing on a peer to peer basis would be the best format to conduct the course. We’re pleased to invite you into the next phase of our lives, and perhaps yours as well. If your next, “What if?” is large enough and curious enough to court enlightenment, then we’re sure the universe has a very interesting adventure in store for us. Warmly, Alex Giorgio & Heidi Nobantu Saul
