Ilchi Lee’s dynamic presentation will include time for training and meditation during the 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM HST event. The event organizers say that through this event, even novices can:

  • Experience guided meditation for empowering true connection in every aspect your life.
  • Test out practical self-care tools for decreasing stress, increasing calm, and enjoying more happiness.
  • Be inspired to live your best life from your heart.

The $20 cost of the ticket includes a copy of Connect—Ilchi Lee’s latest offering of practical ways to live an authentic, fulfilling life. Connect drives home the message that all of the individual and collective issues we face stem from the same source: a lack of connection with our most authentic selves, our purest humanity. It provides simple practices for looking within and discovering our unlimited wisdom and potential.

Ordinarily, when things happen, we make judgments based only on what we see. By seeing only the outwardly visible world, however, it's impossible to completely understand the principles by which you, others, and the world work. In order to do so, you also need to see the principles operating beyond the scenes. 

The principles of the invisible world are the actions of consciousness, the operations of energy. What we see with our eyes came about because consciousness and energy acted first.

To understand the principles of the unseen world, then, you must first understand what consciousness and energy are and how they operate. Focusing within and exploring your inner world is most important for understanding consciousness and energy. After focusing for a while on your invisible, internal world, you will feel it gradually brightening and your understanding growing. 

This inner or “sixth sense” is commonly called the third eye, the spiritual eye, the mind’s eye, or the all-seeing eye. It’s the eye of wisdom opening, seeing through to previously invisible principles. It enables you to see things more broadly, deeply, and clearly than before.

You can open this eye through Pineal Gland Meditation. With Pineal Gland Meditation, you can explore and illuminate the world using energy as a tool that is felt throughout your body and mind.



Connect by Ilchi Lee wins a Living Now Book Award

Connect: How to Find Clarity and Expand Your Consciousness with Pineal Gland Meditation, Ilchi Lee's latest book (July 2019, Best Life Media), received a silver medal in the Meditation/Relaxation category of the 2019 Living Now Book Awards. These awards "celebrate the innovation and creativity of newly published books that enhance the quality of our lives," according to the awards description.  

Since 2008, the Living Now Book Awards have highlighted books on health, home and family, and personal development—topics thought to be the fastest-growing segments in book publishing. Connect addresses the development of one's intuition and problem-solving abilities.

Ilchi Lee writes in Connect, "Once you understand that disconnection is the underlying cause of your problems, then the solution also becomes clearer. All you have to do is mend your broken connections. Recover your connection with your body, your connection with your true self, and your connection with people and the world. How can we recover that connection? I believe that the master key that makes it possible is in the human brain, and I present Pineal Gland Meditation as an essential technique for awakening the brain."

Connect contains detailed and illustrated descriptions of how to do Pineal Gland Meditation and related body-mind-spirit exercises. It guides readers to greater self-love and self-efficacy through finding meaning within themselves.
Pineal Gland Meditation does this by clearing out misinformation to allow clarity and new, empowering information to take root in the brain.

As Emma, one practitioner said: "Pineal Gland Meditation caused memories buried deep in my unconscious mind to rise to the surface, one by one—not only happy ones, but painful memories and shameful experiences I didn’t want to think about, and memories I didn’t even know I had. But surprisingly, those memories showed me clear reasons and solutions for the physical, mental, and emotional problems I was experiencing. I feel a real peace inside now, one that fills my heart."

To explore Connect, find it at any major bookseller in paperback, audiobook, and Kindle ebook formats.


Believe in Yourself

In various aspects of life, you may find yourself bound by fear. But if you look closely, you may see that it's your mind that is creating that fear and imposing limitations on what you think you can do.

Fear is a delusion, a virtual image of ourselves that we’ve created. Breaking out of that image, like a chick breaking out of its shell, is the beginning of self-transformation and innovation. 

This transformation is not something someone else can do for you. Only you can find the courage to face it directly and shatter those images.

To draw out your power of self-innovation, enter your inner world, breaking the chain of your endless thoughts. Beneath the illusory curtain of fear and limitation, you'll encounter the essence of yourself, the light shining inside you.
That essence, your true self, isn’t the self you are familiar with. It's the self you've always dreamed of and hoped for deep inside. When you are connected with your true self, you have nothing to fear in this world.  

Encounter that self. 
Connect with that self.

P.S. I hope you enjoyed this message from my book Connect.
