The two programs on this DVD feature psychotherapist and bestselling author Dr. Wayne Dyer, who offers pointers on getting what you "really, really, really, really" want (each "really" turns out to be significant) as well as a lecture entitled "Improve Your Life Using the Wisdom of the Ages." Dyer's books have been very successful over the past two decades, and those who feel they've benefited from his approachable blend of pop psychology and inspirational speaking will no doubt find much value in what he says in these lectures. Despite an overblown introduction that describes him as "America's foremost teacher of transformational wisdom," Dyer comes across as a knowledgeable yet self-effacing fellow in a comfortable sweater. With a plain-spoken style sprinkled with references to his wife and their eight children, as well as copious mentions of literary figures, teachers, and healers from a broad range of cultures, he devotes more than an hour to describing how you can determine what you really want and how you can go about getting it by returning to "your sacred, higher self." In the second lecture on this disc, Dyer, by utilizing examples from what he calls "ancient wisdom," talks at some length about "finding within yourself what you are here for." --Robert J. McNamara

Just purchase and listen. What could be easier if you are looking to improve your financial situation or your relationship situation.
I could tell you how amazing the ideas are in this program and what I think they mean ... but what I want to tell you is something a lot more important. I USED what I learned here ... and I built on it ... I took what Dr. Dyer offered here, went out and learned more, applied what I learned in my life ... changed how I looked at life and how I LIVED life ... day by day ... and I have completely changed my life, for the better. Then, I was lost, lonely, unhappy, afraid ... not any more. The last three years of my life have been the happiest, most fulfilling most successful I have ever experienced. And THIS program is where it began for me. THIS is where it started. Since viewing this program, I have read many other books by Dr. Dyer and others ... viewed and listened to a lot of other programs ... made HUGE changes to my life ... inside and outside ... and SO much has changed and it's ALL for the better. I am now happy, loved, in love, successful, fulfilled, filled with peace and confidence ... I AM where I once thought I never could be. And I can tell you that THIS program is where it began for me. I remember it QUITE clearly. THIS is where it all started.
I posted this review largely in response to the person who wrote a rather scathing review of this program and gave it one star. Here is my response. A) No self help material ever written can be used by everyone, without regard to where they are in life. Each of us has to find the material suited for who we are and where we are in our journey. Clearly, this wasn't what this person needed. B) I studied, researched and applied what I learned here ... I WORKED at it ... I didn't just read it and toss it aside. I TRIED it ... I LIVED it ... and it HAS changed my life completely. YOU, as a potential viewer, have to decide which of these two assessments speaks to YOU. If this sounds like something you couldn't possibly benefit from ... maybe you're right. All I can tell you is my personal experience ... I viewed it ... dug into it ... studied it in depth ... researched it for 2 years ... applied it for 4 years ... added to it ... LIVED IT ... and my life is completely changed.
Decide for yourself. :)
In this tape, Dyer emphasizes that everything we need is already within us. We do not need to hang on to the past as an excuse for not doing what we are capable of doing today. Just as the wake of a boat is merely the path of where it has been, it does not help move the boat forward.
Dyer also recites the poem, "The Cookie Thief," on this video. There are also glimpses of Dyer at home, playing basketball with his children, and walking with his wife Marcelene. This was a nice touch, not overdone, just showing an author/teacher whose life is clearly in balance.
The setting for Dyer's talk is very pleasant, with many plants in the background and soothing colors. The camera shows reaction shots of the audience during the talk. It is professionally filmed, with crisp and clear audio and video.
There's probably a message or two to be learned by anyone new to Dyer's work and long-time fans will enjoy adding this one to their home video library.
