REALIZE YOUR POTENTIAL
“He who knows all but fails to know himself misses everything.”
– Gospel of Thomas
This course kicks off with learning to apply a powerful tool that enables you to
recognize the inner tensions in yourself and others and the psychological
‘movements’ that arise from them.
Discover the deepest centre of yourself: the ‘I’. Find out what it feels like to
step beyond it and see what happens next.
Understanding the difference between reality and truth can
change everything in your life. Find out how this week.
Learn to create space between yourself and all your conditionings and
automatic processes. Create space in your mind and in your life.
Realize your real self and your full potential in each and every moment.
This week will teach you how.
Explore the deeper layers of your self and find out about the mechanisms and obstacles that prevent you from further self-development: the realization of your potential.
In these five weeks, you will learn to recognize inner conflict, to calm your mind in an instant, how to create and increase the psychological space between you and your automatic behaviours and reactions, so that you can make free choices. You will develop a higher level of self-esteem and self-certainty, and you will use this as a springboard for better decision-making in your outer life while still maintaining inner contentment regardless of outward circumstances.
This online course is structured to give you the personal time you need to learn and practice these new skills. Each week begins with new insight, usually in the form of a video conversation, and each day you will be sent articles, recordings and exercises which help develop the week’s theme in greater depth, and guide you as you start to realize your potential for a new, more lucid, more contented life. You will not be alone on your journey. You will be invited to join the course forum where participants interact with one another and with dedicated tutors, asking and answering questions and sharing their experiences
Dirk de Sousa, psychological counsellor, coach and author
As an original voice in modern psychology, the bestselling author unlocks personal insight and self-knowledge, guiding you in the search for an end to psychological suffering, for emotional resilience and contentment in all spheres of life. For decades, de Sousa has worked successfully as therapist, coach and consultant, numbering among his clients many well-known names in politics, the media and international business. He has also guided athletes and coaches at both national, international and Olympic level, and provided counselling to couples and to parents of children in crisis. In his first book, The Self Beyond Myself, de Sousa argued that the first step to contentment is to gain real insight into our own inner self with the right form of self-reflection.
The capacity for this insight, which also includes the ability to recognize what we encounter within, enables us to fully understand ourselves and then to realize our full potential. He terms this capacity, Lucidity. In his most recent work, de Sousa breaks down Lucidity into four qualities – contentment, mental clarity, self-reflection and psychological maturity – and shows how it can be objectively measured and improved, leading to greater mental freedom, inner unity, and enduring contentment.
“Man’s potential for contentment is unlimited, but so is his potential for putting obstacles in his own way.”
– Dirk de Sousa
