… you’ll learn about a “6 Phase Meditation” approach that absolutely everyone can do—and benefit from!—no exceptions. This custom-designed meditation sequence gets you into a peak state in just a few minutes. No boredom, special breathing, or clearing your mind required. You’ll find out how to make meditation work for you and how you can use intuition as one of your greatest strengths.
Episode guest Vishen Lakhiani took up meditation at age 26 as a way to cope with the stress of working for a startup in Silicon Valley. That decision changed his life so dramatically that within two years he quit to pursue meditation, other tools of personal development, and then spread awareness and education to people around the world. He’s taught his signature 6-phase meditation style to world-class athletes, professional entertainers and high-performers in all types of business. He also founded Mindvalley, an international learning platform.
Vishen’s newest book, “THE 6 PHASE MEDITATION METHOD: The Proven Technique to Supercharge Your Mind, Manifest Your Goals and Make Magic in Minutes a Day,” outlines a series of science-backed mental exercises for accomplishing your goals. It condenses the wisdom of nearly 1,000 neuroscientists, monks, yogis, and meditation experts into a hyper-efficient programming script that you can run through your mind any time of day.
Unlike traditional meditation that encourages a calm and serene environment, the 6 Phase Meditation Method can be done from anywhere—your bed, your office or even on your next flight. “It’s six different practices that you layer on that put you in a hyper-optimized state,” Vishen says.
