Once Pieter began to deliver he found he could often do more for his students in the nine days of the Avatar Course than he had been able to do in weeks, months, and years of treating patients with physical or emotional problems in his practice. This applied both to physical difficulties and emotional ones. Avatar is not therapy nor a substitute for therapy. Some physical and emotional difficulties have their origins in consciousness and these can be affected by tools of consciousness.
Some internal conflicts are with one’s self. Resolving this one showed me my life’s purpose.
It was a conflict between my arrogance as a neurologist and accepting that people who weren’t neurologists might know more about the brain and the mind than I did.
My wife Marika suggested we help deliver the Avatar® Course in 2005 in San Francisco near our new home. Avatar is a 9-day, experiential, non-religious course developed by an educator named Harry Palmer. The students learn tools of consciousness. By applying the tools, each student realizes that s/he is the source of their lives and their experiences. They can control their lives instead of being controlled by life’s happenings. They can change attitudes, beliefs, and ideas that they feel no longer serve them. They create and strengthen attitudes, beliefs, and ideas that do serve them. Avatar Masters guide them in how to use the tools.
