Are You Ready to Try a Scientific Approach to Awakening That Actually Works? 

Millions of people around the world seek lasting peace and happiness, for their own reasons. 

But most never actually awaken or experience a transition into Fundamental Wellbeing.

They try new meditation techniques, attend numerous retreats, spend hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars a year in the pursuit of anything that seems like it might work… 

But in the end, it’s all the same. 

Some tradition or method that isn’t relevant to today, or doesn’t explain the full picture. 

More magical thinking that promises the world. 

Or just another guru sharing their ideas with little evidence of actual results. 

It’s no wonder why those methods never seem to work and so many who dedicate themselves are left feeling frustrated, disheartened, and like they are only getting further from their goal of persistent inner peace, and lasting happiness. 

But that’s what makes this challenge different. 

Are you ready to discover a scientific protocol for awakening that actually works? 

Where most methods fall short, lack evidence, and don’t seem to work for the vast majority of people…

What I’m sharing with you today is the only scientifically validated and evidence-based path to awakening that is accessible to everybody. So if you haven't had the awakening experience you wanted, or it faded as quickly as it arrived...

It's not your fault.

Over the years we discovered the myths that not only stop most methods from working for most people, but also...

After 15 Years of Research and Thousands of Participants, We Uncovered the Optimal Protocol to Awaken People Quickly, Safely and Reliably.

For the last 15 years, at the Center for the Study of Non-Symbolic Consciousness, we have been running the world’s only large scale scientific project doing research into highest forms of Fundamental Wellbeing, lasting inner peace, ongoing happiness and mystical states of consciousness…

Working with thousands of participants, for over a decade, to create the ultimate path to awakening based on definitive data, and not dogma. 

To do this, first we mapped the territory of consciousness and the levels we wanted to achieve. 

Then we tested the many methods for helping people achieve those levels, and more importantly, stay there. 

We did this with thousands of participants, helping them each experience their own awakening to fundamental wellbeing, persistent peace and lasting happiness, while gathering the data. 

And now, finally, after over a six years of evolution and iteration, and a thousand persistent and lasting awakenings…

We’ve used our findings to make this proven process faster, more effective, more affordable and easier to fit into your lifestyle, and...

The results have been nothing short of incredible. 
Not only have the majority of people who used our protocol persistently awakened, but over 90% of everyone who participated was grateful they took the time to do it.

And now, we’re making this proven process for awakening available to everyone. 

So that you, and anyone you know, can experience their own awakening and transition into Fundamental Wellbeing and persistent mystical states, not in years…

Or even months…

Or even 6 weeks like our current online program...

But just 10 days, or less (hopefully!)

Meet Your Instructor and the Scientist Behind the Research and This Experiment, Dr. Jeffery Martin:

Jeffery is a founder of the Transformative Technology space, a serial entrepreneur and investor, and a social scientist who researches personal transformation and the states of greatest human wellbeing.

Over the last 15 years Jeffery has conducted the largest international study on Fundamental Wellbeing which includes the ways of experiencing life commonly known as: persistent awakening, enlightenment, non-duality, the peace that passeth understanding, unitive experience, and hundreds of other terms. 

This resulted in the first reliable, cross-cultural and pan-tradition classification system for these types experience. 
It also led to the fundamental discovery that these were psychological states that had been identified and adopted for thousands of years by many cultures and belief systems. They were not inherently spiritual or religious, or limited to any given culture or population, and could be molded in many ways to shape the experience. 

Over the last 6 years, he has used this research to make systems available to help people obtain profound psychological benefits in a rapid, secular, reliable, and safe way.

Jeffery is a bestselling author and award-winning educator who has authored, co-authored, or co-edited over 20 books and numerous other publications. He is the author of the landmark book in this field, "The Finders".

His work has regularly been featured at leading academic conferences worldwide, as well as major public forums such as Deepak Chopra’s Sages and Scientists Symposium, Wisdom 2.0, H+, the Science and Nonduality Conference, the Asia Consciousness Festival, and TEDx. 

He has been covered in media as diverse as the South China Morning Post and PBS’s Closer to Truth, and been an invited speaker at many top universities including: Harvard, Yale, University of London, Hong Kong Polytechnic University, and the National University of Singapore. 

He is the Director of the Center for the Study of Non-Symbolic Consciousness (the academic term for Fundamental Wellbeing), a Director and Professor at the Transformative Technology Lab in Silicon Valley, Director of Research Support at the California Institute for Human Science where he directs their Laboratory for Consciousness Science, and an Adjunct Professor and Lecturer at Stanford University. He was formerly Distinguished University Professor, the William James Professor of Consciousness Studies, and Dean of Research at Sofia University.

What Other Participants Say About
The Protocol We Use: 

"The best meditation program I’ve ever done. Nothing else has compared to this program, I would highly recommend it without any hesitation.”

“I really felt a profound gratitude and connectedness to everything. I was struck about how fast that happened. That was really quite extraordinary. There was a dramatic reduction in my self chatter. How targeted and focused the whole approach was, was really quite amazing. The best meditation program I’ve ever done. Nothing else has compared to this program, I would highly recommend it without any hesitation.”

Brad Hendricks

"You feel like the inner peace is integrated into your daily life."

“Doing the 45 days program at home made it so much easier to integrate the experience into my daily life, as opposed to come back from a retreat and losing that peak experience as I got “hit with reality” again. You feel like the inner peace is integrated into your daily life.“

Jamie Thomson

"It's just unbelievably valuable...."

"It's just unbelievably valuable.... it's really obvious to see that the team very much loves what they put together and is really committed to helping other people arrive at fundamental wellbeing as well."

Cat O'Donnel

“I had my first experience of non-duality, and that word really doesn’t even do justice to what that feels like.”

Joan Sumner

"I found the course to be amazingly effective."

"I was so impressed with the organization of the different technologies, the different meditation techniques, and how, Jeffery had woven the different meditation techniques and ideas into a real step-by-step, comprehensive, build ... until you just came to that pop place where you could have exactly what the course is designed for, that really amazing shift in your perspective where all of a sudden you're just like, "Oh. Oh my God, I'm not who I thought I was. Oh my God, things now make sense. Oh, I feel so relaxed and so peaceful." 

Cate Montana

"My favorite part was that this program allowed me to be out in the world living, and still really have some profound experiences."

“The exercises and meditations were very new. It was completely do-able, I felt very supported. Experiencing the awareness exercises with others, just made it all seem more natural. The mediations were really easy to work with, really engaging. My favorite part was that this program allowed me to be out in the world living, and still really have some profound experiences. The nuances of recognizing, and what to do with it, are so helpful for deepening. I’m so happy I did the 45 days.”

Tonette Ross

Curious if this will work for you, too? Here's what our data says.

We Are Too! Join Us And Find Out!

The 4-month version of the protocol transitioned about 70% of people who completed it.

The 6-week version transitioned 65% of participants who completed it. 

Nearly all of the rest had temporary experiences of awakening and were guided in how to sink in so they could lock it in after the program.

In general about 90% of people who have used previous versions of this protocol have experienced either persistent or temporary awakening during the program.

Not only did the majority of seekers who participated in the experiment persistently awaken, but over 90% of everyone who participated was grateful they took the time to do it.

This is the very first time that we've done this as a 10 day retreat format. So, we don't have any data on how it will go...

...but obviously we wouldn't be putting all this effort into it if we didn't expect it to get results. 

The director of the research is even teaching it live, and in-person, something he's never done before. 

The closest he's come was teaching the pilot experiment live online to 6 people in 2014 (with homerun results - and the videos created from those live classes were used by everyone in our experiments for years with a 70% just from the videos alone!)
Wondering why you should try this now?

Our Growing Commitment to Making This Accessible For Everyone:

While our 4 month long flagship Finders Course program, which is where this experiment first began in 2014, is still regarded by those who took it as a godsend at $3000, we know that for many people this amount of time and money make it inaccessible.

We next created a 6 week version for the same price as this retreat.

However, who's to say it should even take 6 weeks? 

Maybe it should only take a weekend!

So for our next test we're going to do a 10 day retreat, and we'd love to have you join us.

This program is about waking up the world safely, rapidly, and reliably. 

So that you and everyone you know who needs it can experience a transition to Fundamental Wellbeing in this lifetime and maximize your true potential. 

Join us, and be the next to experience an awakening. 
Are you ready to experience this for yourself?

Frequently Asked Questions:

What is Fundamental Wellbeing, I've never heard of this term before?
Fundamental Wellbeing is our research project's public term for ways of experiencing life commonly known as: persistent awakening, nonduality, enlightenment, the peace that passeth understanding, unitive experience, persistent mystical experience, and hundreds of others. The term refers to a persistent, ongoing, moment-to-moment experience, not a temporary experience (unless noted). Our academic terms for these types of experience are ongoing and persistent forms of non-symbolic experience.
What is the origin of the methods used in The 10 Day Awakening Challenge?
The sequences of methods shared in the challenge come from over 15 years of research at the Center for the Study of Non-Symbolic Consciousness. Phase of the global research project involved 1,200 people who reported persistent awakening, nonduality, enlightenment, and so forth (Fundamental Wellbeing). Each of these individuals was asked what transitioned them. 

Those methods were then reduced to their core non-religious elements, sorted for effectiveness, adjusted based on the latest understandings from psychology and neuroscience, and experimented with to determine an optimum order to do them in. Modern "gold standard" positive psychology and cognitive science exercises were added to enhance safety and effectiveness.

This protocol was then used in our "gold standard" Finders Course experiments, which transitioned 70% of individuals who completed them in under 4 months, and produced highly significant changes in scientific measures of wellbeing, positive and negative emotion, personality, loneliness, stress, depression, anxiety, and more.

During 6 years of the Finders Course experiments we noticed that 60% of the 70% of participants who transitioned to Fundamental Wellbeing used only a subset of the overall protocol. That smaller part of the overall protocol was adapted to become the 45 Days to Awakening Challenge and Experiment protocol, with a 65% success rate in participants who completed it transitioning to Fundamental Wellbeing, and another 25% of participants experiencing temporary periods of Fundamental Wellbeing. As with the full Finders Course protocol, 45 Days to Awakening Challenge participants had highly significant changes in scientific measures of wellbeing, positive and negative emotion, loneliness, stress, depression, anxiety, and more.
How is this program different, why should I take it instead of another one?
This is the only scientifically-derived, secular program that is focused on helping you to transition to Fundamental Wellbeing (i.e.: persistent awakening, nonduality, enlightenment, etc.). It's based on research that scoured the world for the best methods, improved upon them to ensure they matched the modern brain and nervous system, combined with with other gold standard psychology and cognitive science practices to ensure safety and increase efficacy, and rigorously tested and improved the protocol using the scientific method. It's truly unlike anything else, and our methods have transitioned over 1,000 people in the last 6 years - including many who'd given up all hope that they would ever reach Fundamental Wellbeing.

One of the key aspects of the program is that it is based on our finding that you must find the best method for you, and that when you do it shouldn't take you more than a week to transition to Fundamental Wellbeing. We've assembled a precisely tuned cocktail to help you do just that. During the 45 Day to Awakening Challenge and Experiment, this protocol transitioned 65% of people who used it to Fundamental Wellbeing, and provided another 25% with temporary access to the experience and knowledge of how to deepen and lock it in after the program ended. 98% of participants who completed the experiment reported being satisfied and grateful with the results.
I'm a long time meditator and have tried everything, is this program for me?
It's common for long time meditators to use versions of this protocol. Many have found strong benefits by doing so. Long time seekers become Finders, and long time meditators often comment that they find progress that they hadn't experienced in years. 
What if I’ve never meditated before?
If you’re never meditated before, the 10 Day Awakening Challenge will help you get started in the most effective way possible. And save you from wasting time on method that don’t work fo you, as you find your meditation fit and experience your own transition to fundamental wellbeing. 
Is this program for me if I'm just looking for meditation?
Although this program is focused on helping you to reach Fundamental Wellbeing, that also makes it an outstanding meditation program. If you're just looking to establish, re-establish, or improve your meditation practice, the program will be very helpful for you. It introduces you to many of the most effective meditation methods in the world, in a safe and supportive environment so that you can explore and find the ones best suited to you.
How is the course delivered?
The course will be delivered in person in Rincon, Puerto Rico, USA.
Is the course self-paced?
The program is not self-paced. It is a very precise cocktail. There are specific exercises to do at specific times each day.
How many practices are in the course?
There are approximately 10 positive psychology and cognitive science practices integrated into the course, and around 13 gold-standard meditation methods.
Do I need any special equipment, or anything else?
You do not need any other special equipment. There are no required clothing, meditation seats or cushions, etc. 
What kind of support is provided during the program? What happens if I'm not "getting it"?
Support is provided in various ways during the program, typically from the in-person staff who will be monitoring your progress.
Will waking up change me as a person?
While waking up and transitioning to fundamental wellbeing does dramatically change our experience of life, it doesn't change your personality. Different locations of consciousness do feel different and can dramatically improve many aspects of your life. Throughout the protocol we will help you identify which location you are in, and how to continue to one that more suits how you want to feel. 
Will I benefit from doing this course even if I don’t transition to Fundamental Wellbeing?
Not everyone who uses our protocol transitions to Fundamental Wellbeing, but over 90% of people report being grateful they did it. Our protocol brings many benefits in terms of wellbeing, positive emotion, reductions in stress, anxiety, loneliness and more for those who take it, regardless of whether they transition or not.
Does this course being about a permanent change, or will I still have to practice to keep whatever I've achieved going?
The course is designed to create a persistent, ongoing change to Fundamental Wellbeing for participants. However, it is important to note that this needs to be respected, as it can be lost. While many traditional views of Fundamental Wellbeing refer to this as permanent, our large, global scientific process revealed that this was not the case - even in traditions that believed it was. There are not specific, ongoing practices for those who transition during the course to keep doing, however we do recommend that they respect Fundamental Wellbeing, nurture it, help it to deepen by sinking in to it, and so on. More about how to do that can be found in our Explorers Course program.
My mind is very chatty, and meditation is hard for me. How will I last an hour? Can I meditate for a shorter time and still be successful?
This is very common for us to hear from people prior to the program. Many people have never meditated for a full hour, yet that is without a doubt what is most effective if you want to reach Fundamental Wellbeing. Our process makes this nearly effortless. We worked very hard to get not only the right methods, but optimum sequence of methods to help you slide right into longer period of meditation with ease. To be candid, it's almost a waste of your time to meditate for less than an hour, unless your goal is just moderate relaxation or stress reduction.
Can my partner, family member, friends, co-workers, etc. take this with me?
Definitely. It can be a great idea to go through the program with someone you know. 
How will I know if I'm successful?
You may be thinking to yourself, "how could I not know if I transitioned to Fundamental Wellbeing," but actually there are people who miss it. Even major experts missed their own transition for a period of time. One of the great things about this program is the education and progress tracking that accompanies it to ensure that you know where you're at from the start of the course, through every step, so you can maximize your progress.
Can I read more about the research?
You can view more of our published research, findings, and lectures here. 
If I have an existing practice, will this take away from it? 
Those who take the challenge with an existing contemplative practice and recommended to continue with their existing practices, so long as they don’t take away from the time dedicated to the methods in this program. If your practice continues to help you as you do the challenge, you’re welcome to continue, but you may not need to with the results you get as you experience and deepen into your own transition. 
Is there anyone who shouldn't take the program?
Yes. If you have a serious psychological condition that requires medication, you should not take the program. This includes individuals who are bipolar, psychotic, and so on. Mild depression is fine, but individuals with clinical depression that involves suicidal ideation should avoid the program. If you have questions about whether this applies to you and your situation, please email support at:

Are you ready to become a Finder?

Now is Your Chance to End The Cycle of Seeking

Whatever you do, don’t leave today wondering whether lasting inner peace is possible for you. 

If you’ve been struggling, it is not your fault. Many spend their entire lives seeking, and most never find what they’re looking for. Or only find it close to the end of their lives—missing out on years of inner peace, happiness, and joy and the depth of life that can only come from deep presence. 

And you can still experience this transition even during the challenging times we live in. In fact, hundreds of people have in the past few months alone. 

It doesn’t have to be hard to experience a transition to fundamental wellbeing and you don’t have to renounce your modern life or commitments to people you care about. 

This is all to say: It doesn’t have to be hard to experience an awakening and transition to lasting inner peace and Fundamental Wellbeing yourself.

Let yourself benefit from decades of research and help from many participants who came before you—and let this be easy. 

You can experience a level of moment-to-moment wellbeing and inner peace that is almost impossible to describe.
