You can expect to have your world of possibility opened up and appear within reach. Your confidence, happiness, gratitude and love for life will grow which will all result in bringing you a greater sense of freedom.
How much will it cost?
Our tuition and fees are listed with the course descriptions. We are confident that you will find that you gain much more value from your Academy education than the tuition you spend. We also recognize that your time is extremely valuable. Therefore, our courses are designed to give you a concentrated, powerful, and individualized experience in the time that we spend together and the time that you spend on the course.
We are so confident in the experience that you will have, we offer a complete refund of tuition if you are not satisfied with your experience. To be truthful, the vast majority of students could not even imagine at the beginning of the course how much growth they would actually make by the end of their course.
How do I know if this is for me?
The International Academy of Self-Knowledge is a fantastic resource if:
- You have a deep desire to grow;
- You know that there is more for you in life than you currently are experiencing;;
- You have done self-growth work, but have not gotten the results that you expect;
- You are a successful high-achiever and want to move to higher levels of success and fulfillment in relationships, business, health, athletics, creativity, spirituality, wealth or freedom.
Your time and energy are precious, and we are not going to waste either of them. For this reason, an IASK teacher talks to every prospective student prior to their starting our courses to ensure that our work matches their needs and beliefs. Other than commitment and desire, the only true requirements are:
- A belief that you are responsible for the results that you get in life;
- A belief in the existence of some power beyond you (e.g. Spirit, Divine Energy, God, etc. - the name is not important).
To succeed using our methods, you must take ownership of your life. Additionally, Transformational MeditationTM, our most powerful tool in helping you grow, is a spiritual technology; it just doesn't work if you do not have a spiritual belief system to work with. That said, it is important for you to realize that we do not profess any particular religion, credo, or dogma. The spiritual beliefs of our teachers and students are as diverse as they are.
Occasionally people are drawn to work with us, but are afraid of what they might discover about themselves in the transformation process, and how their lives may change. This is understandable, but is based on false beliefs that you have about yourself. When you come to realize who you really are and the power that lies within you, you will laugh at your old fears. Push away all of the fears and excuses that come into your head (e.g. I'm too busy, it costs too much, what if I find out ________ about myself, my relationships, etc.) and will look at what your real, inner self is saying.
We encourage you to contact us if you want to discuss how we might be able to help you learn how to take yourself to the next level and beyond.
What do ordinary people say about it?
Are there any ordinary people? Well, we think of ourselves here as ordinary in that we do not have extraordinary abilities that are our province alone. We believe that every "ordinary" person has the ability to be "extraordinary" in how they live their lives.
Take the time to read about our teachers and the stories of some of our graduates. These are all ordinary people who feel that what they learned through IASK has been an integral part of making their lives extraordinary.
Is it airy-fairy?
No. Our materials and methods are really straight forward. It is as fluffy as you are.
We think of our beliefs and views as models; they are useful ways of looking at things. We do not pretend to know that what we teach is "real" or "true"; it just works really well. We teach useful beliefs and practices, and do not attach any other value to them. Take what works for you and discard the rest.
If it's so great, why haven't I heard of it before?
The International Academy of Self-Knowledge is very small compared to most organizations which provide education for self development. Our work is individualized and intensive. We fully commit ourselves to each of our students. Most teachers take on only 20 to 60 students a year. So, unlike organizations which provide education to thousands of people over the course of a weekend seminar extravaganza, we actually change people's lives one at a time.
Our organization has grown organically as graduates find themselves called to teach this work. The training process for teachers is extensive and is not fast. We will not compromise the quality of our work in order to grow rapidly. We also believe that our teachers should be rewarded well financially for their work, and we also want to give our students the biggest bang for their buck that we can. Therefore we minimize the amount of money spent on advertising and marketing. Most of our students have come by word of mouth, referred by friends.
For these reasons, IASK has been purposeful and patient in its growth. The wonderful thing is that we are now at phase in our evolution where growth in teaching staff and students is moving at an accelerated pace. As we touch more and more lives with real and lasting wonderful benefits, we are becoming better known.
What makes this different from a thousand other spiritual self-help courses?
We are different because our methods produce rapid and lasting changes using techniques that are easily learned and applied in your real life.
Our goal is to give you the tools to keep yourself on a path of growth without the need for anybody to assist you. Our graduates are able to resolve, on their own, over 90% of the blocks that crop up for them and hold them back. We can be there for the other 10% or you can utilize the skills of other Academy graduates whom you meet to assist you.
Our teachers have studied and used the techniques of many other teachers and schools of self-development, and they have arrived at Transformational MeditationTM and IASK's courses as the most effective technology and materials that they have found. If there was something better out there to move you toward achieving your life goals, we would be teaching it.
