The brain is the organ that learns. YES!!!

This course will help you discover (and implement) the rapid and direct means to grow into Being: who you really are beyond the story of “person.”

What is the rapid and direct means? Expose negativity (the virus or faulty programming in the mind) then focus on the Great Uninstall!

This is called “self-directed neuroplasticity.”

With self-directed neuroplasticity, we access the ruling intelligence (consciousness) to uninstall faulty programs and thus permanently alter the thinking process!

“A concentrated mind is the secret of success in the realization of Truth.”—Lester Levenson

The secret of success is being still enough to focus on the Great Immovable: the presence of pure Being. It is a virus in the mind that prevents the mind from focusing on truth: the good, the sweet, the whole, upliftment and gratitude.  The virus is the me-thought, energized and maintained by involved-with me-feelings.

Involving with negative emotional feelings veils the truth of Being, and perpetuates the lie, that what I am is a personal set of viewpoints and emotions.

Once the habit to react emotionally is in place, it operates just like a computer program runs after it is installed: automatically.  However, if you discover that a computer program is faulty, you uninstall it. In the case of Truth, to uninstall the main lie works the same way. First, you see clearly that me-thoughts and me-feelings are a virus of the mind–a faulty program.  It’s a faulty program because it delivers only suffering. After you see this, you are at choice. You are free to uninstall the faulty program: involvement with negative feelings perpetuate me-thoughts and negate the truth of what you are.

To accomplish the uninstall, we need to address the brain, a kind of super-computer where the addictive habit of involvement with negating feelings was learned and implemented.

It is possible to uninstall programs because the brain is the organ that learns! Habits are programmed and subject to deprogramming. Most of us have ample proof of this in our own lives. Just consider the dozens or hundreds of habits you have discarded over the years! For example, drinking milk from a bottle, wetting your pants, crawling on the floor, riding a bicycle with training wheels. (Just for starters!)

The Great Uninstall

 Me-thoughts and me-feelings are limited: temporary and ever-changing. And what are you?—in truth? Are you a limited me-thought or feeling, or are you the consciousness that witnesses thoughts and feelings?

 Do you see that you, consciousness, is free to choose? If you choose to identify with limited thoughts and feelings, negativity and fear is the natural consequence. To manage fear, we learn to do what our parents did. We deny it, suppress it or express it as frustration, anger, and rage.

So long as we allow involvement with me-thoughts and me-feelings to capture our interest and focus, the negativity bias of the brain (the survival response) will deliver ever-more projections of separation, isolation and unhappiness.

Break the Habit

This Course will help you find your trump card: “What is aware”–free of me-thoughts and me-feelings? What stops negativity in its tracks? Your trump card: the ever-present, ever-aware, ever-serene presence of pure Being.

For 30 days in a row, we will practice accessing the trump card, and learn how to play it with super-intelligent effect in daily life situations. Playing the trump card is the same as Consciousness highlighting a stressful negativity, and making a NEW decision: “No more involvement with that one! I’ve had the full experience of it. Enough!”

This decision enables attention to be consistently withdrawn from  me-thoughts and me-feelings and given instead, to powerful concentration on the Truth: the presence of pure Being, which is felt as an uninterrupted sweetness, tranquility and well-being.

Once you, consciousness, make the decision to withdraw power from limiting thoughts, images, and energies, you then use your computer (the brain) and give the order for a new experience. “I’m going to pour the power of my attention into love, praise and gratitude, instead of empowering limitations!” Accessing consciousness, giving orders to the brain to create a new experience or response is called “self-directed neuroplasticity.” Modern neuroscience has proven that regular doses of positivity (love, praise, gratitude) build “neural net worth;” That the actual structure of the brain is changed, according to what stimulus is focused on.

Devotion to the presence of pure Being combined with daily activities that demonstrate praise, love, and gratitude is the essence of the Swifter Intelligence Course.

Neural Net Worth

The brain is the organ that learns. Whatever we repeatedly involve our attention with slowly but surely sculpts neural structure.

We vote moment to moment for happiness, or misery, according to what we focus our attention upon!

This 30-Day intensive is a commitment to ourselves and each other, that for 30-days in a row we will exercise (yes, exercise is work!) our freedom where we place our attention. By invoking the principle of neural Darwinism, (the survival of the busiest, and the extinction of the un-utilized), we commit to withdrawing attention (and power) from faulty brain circuits, mental and emotional habits that perpetuate negativity. Negativity is the wake-up call that we are denying or ignoring the truth of our Being, and thereby it serves as a cue to make a new choice.

Since the thinking process (the mind) is already building the brain day after day, let’s build a brain that defaults to happiness instead of misery!

“The thoughts that you dwell upon are embodied in your life.”

“What you think about, you bring about.”

“The best way to self-realization is to not think at all. Yet if you must think, then think only what you want.” –Lester Levenson

“Dwell Upon”

For 30 days, we’ll repeatedly (in small, repeated doses) dwell upon what is good in our lives–and in any stressful situation–no matter what shape the outer situation takes. In the daily tele-class, we’ll question any thoughts that prevent the choice to dwell upon the good. We’ll identify and question the alleged benefit of dwelling (and growing) negative brain states. We’ll share insights and shifts that ever-increase as we dwell upon the only thing that is real and True: the Indwelling presence of pure Being.

Each participant will have an assigned partner (changes every 6 days) for daily online support and accountability. Attendance at either or both daily Teleclasses is optional.

    It’s like doing the school from home. The benefit to this format is what comes up is your everyday life. A tremendous experience. I’m only writing a positive review as I’ve already booked this course for a second time before it sells out! I would otherwise want to keep this all to myself! Amazing.

  2. R.L.

    Thank you so much for all that you are giving to us on this course. I am blown away by your generosity, and am extremely thankful and happy that I signed up to do this.

    Thank you, thank you.

    Person interested in May 2020 Swifter: I would love to hear from anyone doing the Swifter program – how’s it going? Is there a lot of time involved? I am considering the May class.

    Class Member: I have been doing it and I am loving it. It has been time consuming and also so worth the time. I will miss the daily contact in group work as well as individual partner work.
    I hope you do decide to do the May course. I love the format of daily work.

    Person interested in May 2020 Swifter: Hi Class member 1. What is your best guess estimate of the time you spent each day on the course outside of the daily call time?

    Class member 2: Hi, as Katie says, “get what you came for”…its a personal journey and time commitment. I would say shortest time for me on any day would have been 2 hours minimum between personal glimpses, daily actions and meeting with partners. Truth is, we grow into it as a practice, just like The Work. The daily support of the group and partners is amazing. So blessed to have had the time to do more than mind wanted me to.💖

    Class member 3:
    I am so grateful for participating and the gifts of the class.
    Class member 4: Me too!
    Class member 5: I felt the investment was well worth the time and effort. This program took me to places I’d never have imagined possible. If you feel the call, 30 days may give you the best gift you could give yourself.

    Class member 6: Just amazing.

    Class member 7: This is an opportunity to become new and to see everyone else in the class do the same thing. I can’t put a price in terms of time or money on having so much peace and joy.

    Person going to May 2020 Swifter: So great to hear from you both! I’ve registered for the May course and am really looking forward to it. I would have been in there with you all in February but I was out of the country for a third of the time. Who else is doing May???

  4. E.S.

    My takeaway from the course is the giving up negativity, and my freedom to do that. It’s huge. And it’s a very small word to describe it. And also, giving up negativity as the foundational giving that’s something big and the giving that was big also. And what helped me give to others was the letter to myself. And through the letter to myself I could experience giving to myself first what I would then give to the others, like the words.

    I could experience how nourishing they were for me, and then I felt joy to give them to others, knowing how helpful they were to me first. And I definitely don’t want to give up the letter to myself workout, because I can’t stop, I feel I am starving for this, the kindness and the love. And being able to give that to me, and really receive it, it’s been huge.

  5. K. W.

    I felt like this course was really both learning a lot but also really consolidating, just so many of the teachings over time, and going, “I’ve learnt a lot of these things, and now it’s really time to make a practice of them.” It’s like enough of the theoretical, and really go in and do it. And I just loved the constant, the multiple reminders every day, that was just really, really helpful because I think there’s a story, too.

    But I think that my mind… with a weekly course or something like that, or a retreat here and there, my mind wiggles out of all those learnings and teachings because it has to be habitual, it has to be daily, it has to be ingrained almost in every moment. And for that, I just need a lot, a lot of reminders. And then, also really to notice I just love feeling so open-hearted about all you guys. When I think of each of you, my heart is just so open and that’s such a nice feeling.

    And that’s for me, and I feel really fortunate to be in this group where people are so open and kind, I just feel really lucky to be here.

  6. S.T.

    I’m really, really grateful for just about everything here. Inbreathe, the innocence, the unbrace. My overtures to truthfulness with my partner, which I think just opened the door for his truthfulness.

  7. V.M.

    All of these practices for me have been amazing and the letter too, I’ve still got letters to keep opening, so that’s a real treat for me.

    When I just need one or I want one, I just open randomly, and they just keep having the message I need to hear. So, that’s been really gorgeous and just feeling the flow and the glow of the giving, when I am able to give something, those little cards or those little things, and just the change in my state when I get to do something intentional like that. It just jumps me straight out of that small self and into just connection.
    All these new things that have opened up to actually do. I’ve actually got a whole new direction to take and that sense of purifying action, just taking it and daring into the places that are scary, have been scary. So, that’s my takeaways, thank you very much. Thank you so much, and everyone, amazing.

  8. C.M

    What I’m taking away is the courage to be intimate with my feelings. They’re positive or negative. And intensity of it. The understanding of importance of discipline and commitment of what I really want and stay with it. And a different sense of the family. Family is I may not like all of you, I may not love all of you, I may love you, I may like you. And the honesty of it at the moment.
    It’s family. Yes, and then everything changed in the moment, and for me the courage to be with it, and find myself in those moments. Myself meaning the I, the space.
    And the most grateful I am to you to give us such a clear direction and tools to reach this place where I don’t have excuse now to not do it.
    The poor me, the successful me, the bullshit me. It’s just the happy me or not. Just wants to reach the space. So, with my deep gratitude to all of you and to you, Elizabeth, for letting me attend this course. Thank you.

  9. L.D.

    I feel like I’ve been given a recipe for the rest of my life. So, I feel incredibly grateful and really feeling so much more love for myself, which has a ripple effect in everything I do. I just notice how I’m talking to myself quite a lot [laughs] in such a loving way. And it’s just so lovely to be doing that.
    And I love the daily giving. And how the giving, how it always comes round full circle and how beautiful I’ve just seen it so clearly how it’s working.

    And how my mindset has changed around everything. It’s like “where can I give? How can I be of service?” Which is very opening. So, yes, thank you for everything. So glad to have been part of this with everybody.

  10. A. R.

    Thank you, there’s just so many it seems to takeaway from this course. So, some of them are how wonderful it was for the support of everybody. But also, to see that the thoughts and emotions are not personal, that we all have them. So, that really helped with an opening with my family and other people I was interacting with, too. The morning connect was amazing because I would feel the resistance, notice the resistance and then just the lightness and the freedom which seems to be on the other side of that to feel that gratitude.
    And that all helped with the innocence, the innocence of seeing we’re all innocent. Writing the notes to my photographs as a child and seeing all of our childhood photos on Facebook was just precious. And it really opened up that innocence with my husband, so I’m so grateful for that, so I’m going to take that forward with me, because the “Be still before you act or speak” is very powerful.

    And with my children, not seeing them as children, meet them where they are, the innocence of them. It’s just beautiful. And I just want to live in the truth, to be able to feel that I can say what I want to say when I want to say it and be still and quiet before I say it. So, that’s been a wonderful takeaway. And thank you, Elizabeth, for being right what every single one of us needed, you were just right with us the whole way. And I really, really do say thank you. Just amazing.

    I’d heard that before–that we are all the light of Being, but had not really— I conceptualized it, but I didn’t really get it. Now I do, it’s like I’m just picturing this amazing light we’re all Being. We’re not creating, it’s being created from us. One of the really big takeaways is realizing that this giving is a moment by moment. It’s not a “one and done.” Or three and done. That it’s just that life is moment by moment. It’s not somewhere in the future. It’s here, now. And the last couple of nights I really experienced, really realized that it is possible to drop a story just like that immediately—that there is that freedom.

    And that’s part of that moment by moment, and there’s such a relief of not having to have that calculating mind in charge, to not have to know, or to hear it out.

    And there’s so much more lightness with this. I don’t need words anymore. Just immense gratitude and everybody here, when you said that we could be re-imprinted, I realized you’re not the family I was supposedly was born with, but the family I would have chosen, if there was me choosing it.

  12. W. B.

    The living turnarounds are just, I hadn’t really gotten the hang of living turnarounds before this class, so I think it’s just a constant checking in and where are we and the testing. It’s really good. It’s powerful. It’s a lot of fun.

  13. S.B.

    One of my takeaways is how powerful 30 days can be. Intellectually I’ve heard many times, “You can change in 30 days.” But now, I’ve experienced it, it’s experiential now. And it’s like we were all at one stage or another a caterpillar 30 days ago. And now, we’re butterflies, spreading our wings and soaring above with an entirely different perspective.

    And maybe we’ll dip down closer to the ground, and yet I feel none of us will ever return to being caterpillars, it’s just not possible. And how transformative this process, and how supportive everybody is, just all the examples of change. Everybody opening up, blooming, flowering, is just really inspiring. And Elizabeth, you’re just so marvelous and what an example you set in being generous and open and caring and compassionate and gentle. I am so grateful to you and to everybody, thank you.
    You know, it feels too like it doesn’t just end here at the 30 days, one of the reasons I thought I was going to dread this day of the last day. And I realized this is just the beginning.

    It doesn’t end here I don’t feel like anything is really ending.
    This may be the end of the beginning, but there’s much more ahead.

  14. E.P.

    I think the takeaway that seems the most profound is the power of the 30-days and the habit that can happen in the 30 days. And having the task that I had it filled my day with my intentions. And I’d never realized the power of that, when I fill my day with those kinds of intentions, I have results. And what will happen if I pull in more and more habits with those kinds of intentions and the result of that.

    So, I just am looking forward to sitting with a peacefulness when I’m deciding what kind of habits to implement so that they’re not in the name of getting better or improving, but it’s really out of relaxation and peace. So, thank you for that.

    It was beautiful, my biggest breakthrough was when I was probably three weeks into it, I started to feel like this is too much, because I made sure that I did all of the tasks every day. And it’s when I worked with a classmate and I released that block of this is too much and I turned a corner. And so, during the process, when I was releasing it, I actually pictured these different times when I thought I couldn’t take it anymore.

    It was just too much, where I felt a transformation, and I just realized it’s like that caterpillar going into the butterfly. I just have to let that transformation take place and not worry about what’s too much. It’s just so beautiful, my life, it’s just beautiful. Anyway. Thank you, everyone.
