“The Wrights’ book is about transformation that taps human potential at all levels. The strength and commitment of the people they coach and train is proof of their effectiveness.” —Dr. Muhammad Yunus, Nobel Peace Laureate and Founder of Grameen Bank

""Thanks to Dr. Judith Wright and Dr. Bob Wright, we now have a powerful and comprehensive toolkit for personal and global awakening. If you are ready to activate your visionary birthright, read and apply what you learn in this 'must-absorb' new book. You will absolutely see significant changes in every domain of your life."" —Barnet Bain, producer of What Dreams May Come and The Celestine Prophecy and member of the Transformational Leadership Council
“It is so wonderful to see the work being done by Bob and Judith Wright to get people in touch with their deep inner selves, full of divine potential. We are not put on Earth simply to eat, drink and ‘be merry’ and yet few acknowledge this crucial truth while there is still time to do much more. Only in the last stages of life do people tend to realize that eating and drinking have not made them either ‘merry’ or even fulfilled on any level. I am so proud of the Wrights for their commitment to helping people blossom and unfold into the divine beings they truly are, and infusing them with courage, conviction, and concrete tools to live that infinite potential. The more people who undergo their trainings and carry that message into the world, the brighter the future—on individual levels and on a global level—will look.”
—H. H. Pujya Swami Chidanand Saraswatiji Maharaj, President and Spiritual Head of Parmarth Niketan Ashram, Rishikesh, India
“Are you ready for a real makeover? This is not a reality show nor a self-help book of the past, it is your reality and hope for a new life. In their new book, Judith and Bob serve a feast of tips and techniques for self-transformation. Their recipe is a blend of the spices of life—find your passions—and anchoring them in nutritional staples of our diet—to helping others create a better society, better communities, and better-performing organizations. Their energizing style and engaging stories invoke a double shot of efficacy on your path to the possibilities for your dreams.”

“Today, tragically, many people resign themselves to a life of achievement instead of fulfillment, entertainment instead of deep satisfaction, amusement instead of joy, and sensory pleasure instead of love.

An over-riding theme is the difference between personal growth and personal transformation. The distinction is vivid. And so, while there are plenty of elements of "how-to," the Wrights make it abundantly clear that it's more than just accomplishing a string of "aha moments." They introduce the concept of re-matrixing, which is facilitated by neuroplasticity - the human capacity to literally, physically, change the brain. As such, they make a compelling case that we are all pre-disposed to transform - which goes way beyond making a change in one's life or achieving a goal.
A few years ago I read Eckhart Tolle's book about living in the moment. I could see how this would make your life a lot more fulfilling, but how to go about doing it totally eluded me. Sure I could spend a few seconds at a time smelling the roses, but to seriously change my life? I needed guideposts, goals, lists, stories of other peoples' lives and how they'd changed in order to see if I was experiencing the same thing.
Transformed takes the seeker step by step through the process of waking up to your life, what it supposed to feel like, and then how to keep it going. This is an amazing book. Written from the view point of people who'd taken the classes which are mentioned at the end of the book, Transformed gives you how to live the life you want in steps that are broken down in order to provide you with the minutest details of transformation.
At the beginning of each chapter, the authors give us inspirational messages from people who've transformed their lives. What's so different about Martin Luther King? Why do we look up to John F. Kennedy, or Gandhi or all of the saints and holy men and women who've come down to us through history? Every one of them lived their life in a transformed way. They followed their hearts, ignoring what others said about them, following instead, their deepest bliss. Who wouldn't want to live that way?Read more ›
It gave insight in how to recognize your body actions and emotions to show whether you are or are not working towards your greater good. One of the things I liked the most is how this book broke down what we think we feel, into what we're really feeling. For example, if we want to be rich and famous, what are the main things we want? Love and respect, and then it gives you a blueprint from which to work on the love and respect, the rest will follow. Reading others stories of how they transformed their life was inspirational as well.
***Reviwed by Jackie for New Age Mama blog-Free copy was received in exchange for a fair and honest review***
The premise of the book is that there are essentially two types of people in the world. There are those who are transformers and make a difference in their lives and in the lives of others and then everyone else. An example of a transformer is Ghandi or Mother Theresa. These are people who have gone against the popular tide and made a significant impact in the world. The research explains their process in ways everyday people can apply to having better lives, whoever they are.
It's evident by the experiences the Authors share that they too have gone through a transformation to get where they are. I won't spoil what they have accomplished in their personal lives, but one example is that they have appeared on multiple national television shows and much more.
The neat thing about this book is that the Authors designed the book to help the everyday person accomplish their personal vision in life. They help them understand the science and practical applications behind transformation, so they too can live a transformed life that is better aligned to their life vision.
This book goes beyond theory, the Authors use the lessons learned from years of primary & secondary research. They also have an active transformation program they run to assist with personal transformations. The Authors cite some of the students written reports in the book. These student reports were a gripping reminder that the WHO we think we are is not always the WHO we want to be.Read more ›
