Seminars are vitally important. They're a chance to really get to see the author of your favorite book on the stage, and get to experience them first hand. They can also articulate truths in such a way which you may have missed in the original material, and are usually open to questions afterwards.
Here, I present the top 10 seminars which I believe everybody should see. They range from religious material, to business sense, while helping people in between. Some of the videos can be seen for free, some need to be paid. Have a look and see which ones you like. You may be pleasantly surprised;-)
1- God Says Yes – Neale Donald Walsch
This seminar was taken in Scotland, and features a small group of people in a very intimate setting. Neale Walsh talks about the material in his books, as well as practical applications for it. It's a wonderfully close and intimate environment, where Neale talks about the nature of reality, and how to manipulate the system of energetics to creating the lifestyle you choose to have. He also describes why the process of, ‘wanting' can push away your desires, by expanding on the material in the, ‘Conversations With God' trilogy.
2- www.TonyRobbins.com – Tony Robbins
A guy that most people know would've heard of. Quite simply, a guy who gets motivation and the practical uses for it. An NLP and business expert, this guy can pretty much get you out of a rut, just by listening to one of his short videos online. Ok, maybe not quite, but you will get motivated to take almost instant action. And this can be enough to start living a life more on your terms and take control of your own reality.
3- The Mechanics Of Mind Control – Dr Joe Marshalla
I stumbled upon Dr Joe last year, and one of the first things I saw was one of his free videos on the mechanics of mind control. And it wasn't a quick video either. It deals with how most of us are under the control of the mind, and presents the case of three unrelated but crucial experiments that give a startling realization into why the planet is the way it is. A true eye opener, and one that you should see if you are starting out on the realization of your goals and dreams.
Byron Katie is one of the best authors of learning to love, ‘what is'. That is to say, trying not to judge and learning how to love unconditionally. She does this by allowing us to explore 4 questions that challenges us to think in a different way and as a result, stop the suffering. This DVD wonderfully shows 4 case studies of this in action, where she gets 4 people to use the 4 questions in their dilemmas. Despite the 4 questions seemingly simple enough, the power that comes from answering them cannot be overstated. Very powerful and truly remarkable work!
5- Eckhart Tolle TV – Eckhart Tolle
This guy is almost too good when it comes to talking about being present and being spiritual. True, being present isn't difficult, but maintaining it is a another matter. He also helps you understand parts of certain metaphors found in certain famous spiritual textbooks, which previously you may have overlooked (or not understood fully). And he explains spirituality and the role of the EGO with such clarity, it's hard to argue. A must have.
6- Freenlphomestudy – Michael Stevenson
The guy that got me into NLP big time, and made me realize how easily it was to manipulate my own conscious, and learn how to refocus. His website contains over 10 hours of free footage, taken from a seminar a few years back, and shows case studies of NLP techniques being used in action. Now, for those of you who don't know, NLP is about using the language of your conscious and the subconscious together, so you can create change more quickly and effectively (may not be the best definition, but it suits this article well). Essentially, by learning how NLP works, you can get to manipulate people and build rapport with them more easily. Definitely a one to watch if you wish to change your life for the better.
7- I know What To Do, So Why Don't I Do It – Dr. Nick Hall
The DVD from this program was taken from a seminar and features Dr. Nick Hall describe about the human emotions. It tells of his journey, how giving a service is vitally important to achieving your goals, and the emotion of fear, and how it holds you back. He describes a process for identifying which beliefs need to be changed, so you can lead a more happier and abundant lifestyle.
8- We are God, God is Love – Neale Donald Walsh
As you can tell, I'm a bit of a Neale Donald Walsh fan, and I'm proud to say that this was my first Neale Walsch DVD that I brought, and features a seminar of around a 1000 people. In this seminar, Neale talks about his upbringing, fear, and the nature of divinity.
Its a clever seminar, as the material presented by his books are discussed, and is presented in an easy to follow format. As always, people who have a strong religious belief system may find it difficult to accept some of the truths in this DVD, but for the mild believers and for the skeptics, it's very informative. And as always, Neale Walsh is very funny. Which always helps;-).
A true entrepreneur in every sense of the word, due to her story. This lady was broke (around just $2 to her name) , before becoming a millionaire within just two years. Her videos and audio CD's (which you can tell are seminars) helps you to become motivated, create a sales force and become more abundant than ever before. She is heartwarming, driven and very passionate about helping others with her work.
10- Ted Talks – (various speakers)
I had to include this one on the list, because quite frankly, you can take up a whole weekend just watching their stuff. Don't get me wrong, you may not agree with every seminar you watch, but each one has thought provoking and gifting ideas from how to lead your life better, why you do the things you do, to practical ways on how to help the world. Truly brilliant and inspiring work!
