Announcing The Radical Happiness 8-Week Online Course
The Radical Happiness Course with Gina Lake has been carefully designed to provide you with a foundation for awakening and to increase your happiness through spiritual practices, a structure for doing those practices, and support, encouragement, and feedback from Gina throughout. This 8-week online course uses a combination of written text, instructional videos and audios, guided meditations, inquiries, and exercises. The practices include four types of meditation, spiritual inquiry, breathing practices, a gratitude practice, love and forgiveness practices, prayer, and others.
By committing to spiritual practices over an 8-week period, including one hour of meditation and an additional hour of other practices and activities each day, you will be forming new lifestyle habits and making changes to your brain that will have lasting effects. As a result of these time-honored spiritual practices, you will learn to move out of the usual ego-driven state of consciousness into Presence and to live increasingly from that alive, awake state. This course provides something that spiritual books and teachings alone cannot.
You are encouraged to bring an attitude of joyful exploration to the activities. Although it's suggested you examine any resistance you may have to meditating for an hour or doing any of the other practices or exercises, struggling, straining, and “shoulding” are not allowed :-) Instead, you are encouraged to find ways to do the activities that fit for you and are enjoyable and work for you. This course offers many practices and activities you will find helpful, but no one is insisting you do them a certain way or even in a particular time frame if that’s not working for you. This is your course, for you to use in a way you see fit.
This course is for you if...

Excerpt: The Hero's Beliefs
Because the hero knows who he is on a deep level, he has gained access to the qualities of the divine self and lives in alignment with those qualities. Through many experiences with life, he tried on many beliefs until he found ones that told the truth about reality, ones that provided an accurate map and led to happiness.
Let’s take a look at some of the beliefs the hero came to believe along the way that helped him become the hero. An important one was just mentioned: You are given what you need to evolve. The hero discovered that, at every turn, no matter how challenging, he was given the inner and outer resources, assistance, opportunities, ideas, inspiration, wisdom, and motivation he needed to overcome any challenge and grow stronger as a result.
The hero came to recognize that every challenge was designed for his growth and had within it the potential for a successful outcome—and that it was up to him to make it successful. The hero understood that the measure of success was whether he became wiser, more compassionate, more skillful, and a better human being.
The belief that every experience is designed especially for you, for your growth, is a powerful reframing of the way the ego generally sees reality. And it is the truth. Seeing this about life allows you to make the most of every situation and to maintain a positive attitude throughout. With this perspective, there can be little suffering even under quite difficult circumstances.
