The Very Important Part of Me is Back
"Some twelve years ago, I had the opportunity to read one book on Silva Method. I remember reading it in a hurry, feeling totally impressed and then continuing with the pressing problems of the 'real' life - so whatever came out of this reading, it didn't last.
After finishing my studies, I became a Doctor, but I have always had this artistic urge - I also have been illustrator and draftsman. I have somehow managed to keep those two sides of my life reasonably together.
Some six years after, I lost the urge to create, got lost in immediate needs. I felt that a very important part of me is missing. Even more, I couldn't make myself draw - somehow I felt blocked and powerless...
Although everything else worked fine for me, I felt this need to express myself artistically, and that part of me was blocked.
I read Burt Goldman's online course and started meditating daily, mostly using affirmations. Unbelievably I started drawing again! I am little bit afraid to say this aloud - I feel that very important part of me is back.
By removing mental block that was stopping me from being creative, I feel that I have done something equally important!
Thank you, Burt! You have done something great for me!"
~ Riste Sekuloski from Macedonia
It Changes My Perception Of - Literally - Everything
"Consistent use Burt's teachings - in listening to and thinking about the lectures, and in participating in the meditations - has been of benefit in many aspects of my life. One of the greatest is the results that come from committing to, and sticking with, "the practice." We tend to think of "habits" as mindless, bad things - but the habit of practicing with Burt's teachings is the opposite - mindful, and very, very good!
Without a doubt, my favorite exercise is the Daisy Pond. I am a small business owner; my days are typically hectic and taking a few minutes in the middle of the day to swim and float in that magical place changes my perception of - literally - everything. It is a sensual and psychological oasis!
My ability to focus is stronger. My intuition is higher, my interactions with the people around me are more mindful. What I love about Burt's program is how well it integrates with other practices in my life, such as the study of quantum mechanics and working with Jungian archetypes...Burt's teachings are, in some respects, a synthesis of all of those other paths."
~ Linda Anger from Rochester Hills, Michigan
Subsequent Inspiration I Receive In All Areas Of My Life
"I found your site by surfing - and have been practicing going to level since.
The feelings I get when "at level" are peaceful and calming... and the subsequent inspiration I receive in all areas of my life continues to astound me.
I just want to thank you for being a great tour guide to a higher life."
~ Montana Gray from California
More Positive & Composed
"In the MindBox, I enjoy being guided by Burt to my alpha level on the CDs, which I listen to often.
I am able to carry over this relaxed feeling into my work day, which is very helpful. The changes have been subtle, but gratifying.
I'm more relaxed, more focused on my goals (and) less critical of others. I've mostly banished guilt as a useless emotion. I worry less. In general, I'm more positive and composed, thanks to Burt."
~ Bill Dahl from Rancho Cordova, California
They Give Me Hope & Inspiration...
"Thank you for your generous gift of your email...
I always save them in a folder and when I have the time I will dive into the folder to just get a hit of inspiration. Your emails are like a friend that checks up on me and says how are you doing?
Are you meditating regularly? Are you remembering to be in contact with the divine? They give me hope and inspiration that I can create the world I want."
~ Kathy Hoyer from USA
Give You An Opportunity To Develop Skills That Are Essential
"My goal for using the MindBox is to learn techniques that help me to engage the world more effectively. I saw an opportunity to develop skills that are essential: living life with more confidence, and conquer self doubt.
I understand more deeply what it means that life happens from us, not to us. That we can decide how to assign meaning to the events in our lives rather than letting events trigger a reaction that is beyond our control.
It is a fundamental shift that allows for self empowerment, that engenders self determination. In other words it has made it easier for me to be my own man, with more confidence!
I've learned to use visualization techniques along with the bagha, such as the three screens technique, and the Kahuna Boldness technique, to create a clear vision and methods to realize that vision.
My most rewarding achievement since using the MindBox is the ability to preform with more stage presence and intensity as an entertainer. I feel my music comes from a deeper place and I welcome the possibilities that life holds more happily.
I recomend the MindBox to everyone with a desire to understand their lot in life better.
I think that the information contained in Burt Goldman's teachings is invaluable to those of us with big dreams and little practice at living them.
I have learned that certain behaviors bring about certain results. What I have learned from the MindBox is that there are proven and effective ways to detangle the burden of life from our thinking. We can instead, direct our energies from discontent and anxiety, to realizing our buried potential.
I think Burt Goldman has crafted a supreme array of tools, and pearls of wisdom, that help develop type of skills a person can have.
I think the essence of the MindBox is simple, to improve the quality of life.It does just that. Life presents the challenge for us to gain enough awareness to figure out mastery over the world.
I have spent the majority of my 45years in life searching for peices of the puzzle, to figure out the bigger picture. The MindBox is not just a treasure, it is the fortress that holds all the treasures!"
~ Marc Anthony DeTomaso from Naples, Florida. USA
I am Now Emotionally Independent Of Different Relationships In My Life
"My goal with the MindBox was to improve my mindset in my personal life from having a negative, defeating attitude into being a more positive and calmer person and being in control of my emotions. Burt's teachings helped me to accomplish this.
All my life, I have been around negative people, family and friends programming my mind and letting them 'get to me.' Now I am emotionally independent of the bad relationships in my life."
~ Maria Markogiannis from New York City
Simple & Excellent!
"I have used the MindBox to improve my life, to find peace and serenity in spite of external events, to view life and circumstances with a positive frame of mind, to make that a reality and not just a goal.
I would recommend the MindBox to everyone. It is easy to listen to, includes succinct exercises, and anyone can use them. Simple and excellent!"
~ Maria Bastas from Australia
Awesome & Life-Changing Are Not Overstatements!
"I purchased the MindBox because I was looking for comfort after the deaths of both my son and father within a short time. I was also looking to improve a situation at work, where my boss was often rude and demeaning.
I used, often, the exercises for grief over those who have passed. This gave me closure, comfort and strength.
With my rude boss, she has gradually leaving me alone to do my job. I sometimes don't hear from her for days and even weeks at a time.
I would visualize us at a conference table, together, smiling and nodding at the statement that "we both want the same thing here, there is no need for conflict." I think she "feels" now, that we do both want the same thing and that I don't blame her for any past problems. She has a new confidence in me and my associates. A great turnaround!
Work is now bearable, whereas in the past I used to instead visualize walking out, which wasn't helping at all.
I would highly recommend the MindBox. It helped me, and there are lots of other applications for different problems that I feel it could improve almost anyone's life.
Awesome and life changing are not overstatements!"
~ LeeAnn Tassotti from Racine, Wisconsin
The Best Self Improvement Method In My Life
"I was looking for a self-improvement product that could be used in any situation in life, and I found what I was looking for in The Mindbox. It has dozens of easy ways to improve your life. I listen to it in my car, as I drive at least 2-3 hours daily. I am able to utilize this time listening to the CD's, and then I meditate with the meditation tracks at home. I have listened to the entire Mindbox at least 6 times so far.
I am using many of the techniques:
- The Thought Stopping technique comes in handy when I am trying to go to sleep and thoughts keep popping in my head.
- The Magic Star is incredulous - I am going to put numbered tiles of the Magic Star in the garden of my new home, so I can walk The Star outside, and I can't wait to teach my grandson how to do this.
There are so many techniques in this program - it is exciting to me just thinking of how I can use the different ones. I am really glad I purchased this program!
I have and will continue to recommend The Mindbox to my friends and family. It is the best self improvement method I have come across in my life.
I think The American Monk products are fabulous resources for those of us interested in self improvement and reaching our full abilities and capabilities in this life."
~ Michelle Nicholas from Temple, Georgia
Positive Energy For Building Another Future For Myself
"I am a survivor of Hurricane Katrina, from New Orleans, and since that life-altering event, I have been reaching out for every possible tool and benefit that I can attain, in my attempt to rebuild my life and career.
I am a multi-disciplinary performance artist, and teacher of various arts education programs of my own creation, formerly in the Orleans Parish Public Schools System.
As most of my work was interrupted by the destruction and closure of the schools and many of the performance venues where I had formerly presented my creation, I had to direct my creativity towards the considerable effort of recreating my artistic life.
I am still in that process, and have used many of the visualization, meditation and emotional management techniques you have created in the MindBox, as a way of helping myself on the path. Along with my yoga and tai chi practice, I have managed to transform most of the rage and frustrations I had felt in the early stages into positive energy for building another future for myself."
~ Nanette Ledet, survivor of Hurricane Katrina from New Orleans
The MindBox Is Deeply Rewarding
"I purchased the MindBox as part of a long-term self-development effort, in which I have followed my intuition in the direction of wisdom sources. I found the MindBox tantalizing. So many areas were touched on. I liked that the MindBox combined conscious teaching (lecture material), with guided meditation. That is a superb combination for me.
I would recommend the MindBox to anyone on a path of spiritual and personal development. It is uniquely broad-based in content, touching on virtually every area of concern one could have, yet it is uniquely personal.
I love the MindBox because it is so intimately personal but sophisticated at the same time.
Burt becomes a loved family member and trusted friend as he presents his decades of wisdom into memorable, resonant, and moving vignettes. While some other self-development products seem lightweight or contrived, the MindBox is appropriately deep and deeply rewarding. I think the teachings in the Mind Box exemplify something that is often missing in our culture: deep wisdom teaching from a real "Elder." This collection fills that void for me, and I hope to continue mining its treasures for a long time to come."
~ Marcus Gitterle from Central Texas
Aiding My Inner Spirit Back Into Balance.[*]
"Aloha Mr. Goldman, My goal for taking your lesson is to find balance once again with my inner self. I have been going through tremendous stress for a long time and felt as though my spirituality was slipping away. Because of the stress I have been living with, negativity surrounds me and I know that I can do something about, but lost the focus to accomplish this. I know I needed help.
Yesterday I felt stressed about my financial situation, I got lost inside of my stress and fears. I then made a commitment to really give your lessons a try. I followed your guidance in lesson 1, and WOW! The inner peace and serenity I felt was powerful. I then realized how long it has been since I felt that way. Well needless to say my financial problems didn't just disappear, but I wasn't consumed by the negative affects of it. The rest of my day and night was beautiful and blissful.
I am definitely going to pass this gift on to friends and family. I also asked my boyfriend to experience lesson 1 with me. Thank you so much for aiding me and my inner spirit back into balance."
~ Rondalynn from Kailua Kona,Hawaii
"I really enjoyed the material. I think Mr. Goldman translated beautifully many of the Eastern teachings and techniques to the West in a simple and clear language. Whatever he added from his own knowledge is blended into very valuable and coherent techniques for meditation.
I have been listening and practicing many of these techniques and I find them enjoyable and easy to follow.
I would recommend this material to anyone who wants a simple and effective method to improve their way of thinking and viewing the world and their life.
~ Maria Maturana from San Diego
The Most Explicit & Easy To Understand.
"I found your course to be the most explicit & easy to understand.
My entire philosophy on life is exactly as you teach, I am a healer and teach this way of looking at life but for some time now it would appear that I have lost my way and had hoped for the answers in your system. Your course is extremely comprehensive, laid out in an easy step by step system. I have been searching for the answers for so long now that I've forgotten what the questions were!
I know your course and the information is brilliant but I have yet to find the right key to open my own mind to it."
~ Jean T. from United Kingdom
Ability To Gain The Alpha Level Quickly & Easily
"The main benefit I've received from the MindBox is the ability to gain the alpha level quickly and easily and the faculty to "imagine" easily.
The 3-2-1 Method is as efficient as it gets! Also, just hearing Burt's voice when I start my alpha sessions really gets me in an alpha mode mood! The information Burt Goldman gives is excellent, and I've had many light bulb moments.
Burt Goldman is really great. After all I've said, I really believe in him. I got a feeling that the key is there. I'm glad I have the course."
~ Callie L. from Honolulu, Hawaii
I Finally Feel I've Found What Works For Me
"I'm very happy with the MindBox and have even created a 'tool' for myself - "My Cloak of Calmness". It's for those days that go wrong from the moment you get up in the morning and you probably should have stayed in bed.
I love all the training,talks and meditations I've used so far. In fact I'm seriously considering selling off my 'collection' of self improvement books, cd's, tapes and courses.
I feel I can get on with my life now just using your simple and effective methods. From all the many things I've used, I finally feel I've found one that works for me. I just wanted a simple user manual for my mind and thanks to you, I have it now.
One day soon, when I will have completed my goals, I will become what I believe I was intended to be in my life: Coach/Counsellor.
I will finally preach my ultimate goal thanks to the Mindbox and you Burt."
~ Olma Feneck from New Zealand
The American Monk Products Are Priceless!
"I wanted to utilize something to assist me with the inner personal challenges that I have been encountering in my life as well as obtain powerful tools for my spiritual enhancement.
For a long time, I was manifesting things, people and situation that I did not desire and truly wanted to change that.
I was aware of the principles of manifesting but needed a teacher who could guide me through this process with the skill and wisdom.
Mr. Goldman was the one. Now, whenever I am confronted with an obstacle or feel stuck in a state of negative mindset, I can utilize the valuable tools that have been entrusted in the MindBox series.
Using these precious tools have produced a series of new outcomes in my life and in the way I perceive my situations. We can change our outcomes using the right guidance and techniques.
I would definitely recommend the MindBox to someone else. The value and wisdom contained in those cd's are like precious gems.
The first time I played a Cd, I was deeply drawn to Mr. Goldman's heartfelt attempt to share all that he had accumulated over a lengthy period of his life.
The sincerity and honest intention to transfer this wisdom could be felt with each and every word spoken. His efforts to give us all of this vital knowledge comes across with conviction and genuine care for the recipients of the MindBox series.
The MindBox and other American Monk's products bridges the gap between religious dogmas and spiritual knowledge.
These products deliver a wealth of spiritual wisdom that first applies to one's inner life transformation which will inevitably impact the world out there in a way that religious teachings have failed to do thus far.
The American Monk products are priceless!"
~ Salma Abdool from Woodbridge, Canada
They Help Me to Change My Mind on A Lot of Daily Life Issues
"With the MindBox, I wanted to learn to think differently, to live my life to a higher degree. I wanted to learn how to meditate on a daily basis.
Now, I use the MindBox almost every day. I set my own goals and the MindBox help me stay focused on what I want to accomplish that day. They help me to change my mind on a lot of daily life issues and to see events differently than I use to.
A lot of people think they already know how the mind works, how to deal with the emotional issues of life,... but the MindBox really helps us to improve our quality of life!
I really enjoy listening to the MindBox. I like Burt's tone of voice and the different sequences of the MindBox."
~ John L Stevens from Saginaw Mi.
I Have Been Able to Gain New Levels of Tolerance & Acceptance For Issues
"My goal for using the MindBox was variable.
I wanted to make available to myself more resources that would enable me to have better control over my thoughts and therefore my mind. I wanted to experiment with new healing methods, to produce better attitudes to problems, and to have access to better manifestation methods.
Within 2 weeks of using the MindBox, I gained knowledge into new ways of gaining self-confidence, learning basic principles of spirituality (for a Western and Scientific mind like mine), and using guided meditation to get a better handle of major problems affect me in my daily living.
I have been able to gain new levels of tolerance and acceptance for issues that would otherwise irritate or annoy me. The learning will stay with me forever.
I would recommend the MindBox to anyone who is serious about learning new methods of gaining self-confidence, mental calm and control, career success, dealing with change, and so on.
What I especially like about this excellent resource is the fact that it has been created by Burt Goldman.
I have great respect for his views about spirituality and the practical approaches to life. He has shared with us his exceptional skills he learned in Paramhamsa Yogananda’s Institute, NLP, Silva meditation, Law of Attraction, Self-Hypnosis, Psychic Healing and the like. What the user will like about the tools is the fact that all these skills have been beautifully blended. I don’t know where anyone could find such a plethora of skills and leanings anywhere in one location.
I have so far only used the MindBox. Every meditation (there are over 40 of them covering most, if not all, aspects of human living) uses interesting, adventurous and simple to understand examples and metaphors for making positive changes, be it for self-confidence, mastery of emotions or gaining a deeper understanding of practical spirituality."
~ Nick L. from Nadi, Fiji Islands
I Have Never Been Happier or Calmer
"I wanted to find Peace of Mind.
Since I have been meditating using the MindBox, I have become more focused. I have less fear about change and money.
Last winter and spring I was stressed,emotional and easily angered. I spent most of my time at work or asleep. I did not find pleasure in leaving the house. I needed help and I did not want medication. I believe we overuse medication to fix everything. Message are sent that drugs are always a good thing.
I turned to your MindBox products and I gradually became calmer and things seemed to flow easier. Shortly after an amazing job opportunity arose and I moved to Massachusetts.
I have never been happier or calmer. I still use the tapes when I begin to have self doubt or stress. They are perfect for me."
~ Bonny Huston from North Oxford, Mass
I Have Found My Inner Calm Again
"I think I have stumbled upon the American Monk by providence or serendipity.
I had come to a point in my life where I was lost.....having trouble sleeping, thinking, coping with day to day issues. I could maintain only as long as I was focused on someone else's problems but the moment I was idle, my 'ghosts' would come back to haunt me.
I bought the MindBox and I am glad I did.
I have found my inner calm again and created my own "off switch" so I can turn off my mind and get some sleep.
My oldest grandson is six years old. He was diagnosed with ADHD. He is a bright, funny, imaginative kid but he has self-control issues. He sometimes cried and told me that he hated me and wished it would not happen.
I promised him that I would find a way to make it better...and I did...with the MindBox program.
I took what I learned from it and adapted it to fit his needs.
He now has a button in the roof of his mouth that puts him in his quiet place.It's been a little over four months without incident. I showed him a picture of a daisy so he'd know what to picture. Then, I taught him the Daisy Pond exercise to help him relax so he can get to sleep at night.
I'm still learning and am truly getting better and better.
I would recommend The MindBox to others and I have... The methods are well explained and guided so that you actually "know" what you are doing...
You are not guessing the procedures and hoping you are getting it right.
I can reach the Alpha state in the snap of my fingers. I had never meditated before and I did not understand what was suppose to be happening while I was going through the motions....
Now I do.
You have helped more people than you could ever imagine. Thank you for sharing your knowledge."
~ Nancy Pfeifer from Goldsboro, NC
Great Contribution To Mankind!
"I have been practicing transcendental meditation for 12 years. The MindBox lessons have brought a lot of things into perspective by providing mental visualization techniques. This is essential to self realization, and revealing your life’s purpose. Thank You Burt for providing such a great contribution to mankind!"
~ John Bikek from USA
Indespensible Meditation For Those Eager To Find Peace Of Mind
"I’ve been meditating for years and practiced various methods from Transcendental Meditation, Hong Sau and Kriya Yoga but my all time favorite has been the Daisy Pond guided meditation. I find this guided meditation, with repeated practice, brings me greater longer lasting peace of mind than any of the other meditations mentioned up above. Would I recommend this guided meditation to others? You bet I would. It is an indispensable meditation for those eager to find peace of mind in a world filled with so much turmoil."
~ Rick Blanda
I Just Started The First Lesson... INCREDIBLE!
"I just wanted to let you know that I just started the first lesson... INCREDIBLE! I was so happy when Burt instructed me to “pretend” that I can’t lift my hands, then to try and lift them. I tried, but couldn’t!
Wow... I was excited by that alone, not to mention when I was close to opening the door leading to the Daisy Pond! I actually became a little saddened when it was time to walk back through the hallway and go back up the stairs. I thought to myself "I’m not ready to leave!” The great thing is, the more I meditate with the help of the Daisy Pond, I’ll be able to go there whenever I wanted!"
~ Trevanne from USA
Alleviating Stress & Becoming More Centered
"My goal with using the MindBox was to find a means of alleviating stress and finding inner peace. The meditations have helped me enormously, not only in alleviating stress and becoming more centered, but also in enjoying more harmonious relationships on the job. I have also found gradual physical relief for daily aches and pains associated with arthritis.
I would recommend The American Monk to family and friends because of the changes I am finding in my life. I would hope that everyone could take advantage of this exceptional program and path to becoming the best that one can be."
~ Roberta Culver from Alexandria, VA
It Has Had a Profound Affect On The way I Look At Life
"The MindBox has enabled me to tackle all the challenges of my life, and adopt a positive attitude. I listen to a lecture and meditation track every working day, in order to re-align my thinking, and I am achieving great things.
For me, this really is the most genuinely useful and practical spiritual tool I have ever come across.
Those aspects of the course that have allowed me to connect, logically, to a concept of God have been wonderful. Raised in an atheist and scientific household, I have always lacked faith in my life.
Now, thanks to Burt's clear perception and logical reasoning, I am able to believe in something beyond myself. This has a profound affect on the way I look at life - and has taken away my fear of death. It is a real blessing.
There has been nothing about this course that I haven't enjoyed. I listen to the CDs again and again, to reinforce my understanding and increase my ability to connect with the positive energies of the universe. My work is creative (I am a writer/communicator), and I use Burt's tracks to feel inspired.
I am no longer afraid of "authority figures" which is extremely liberating, as this fear used to hamper me in all areas of my life. But more profoundly, as I said above, I am no longer afraid of death, and that is a gift beyond price.
My deep and heartfelt thanks for Burt for sharing his wisdom with the world. I have been looking for these answers all my life. I am 44, which was beginning to feel rather tired and old; but now I feel energized and filled with excitement."
~ Ros Swamp from United Kingdom
A Pivotal Moment In My Spiritual Progression
"I have lectured all around the world. I' am the top in a network marketing company, own a healing center, a manufacturing company, have had profound mystical experiences that go beyond anything I could have imagined earlier in my life, and am entering into a new even more magnificent time in my life.
I wanted to say thank you. Whether you recognized something in me, heard an inner guidance or simply contributed to a "coincidence" in my life...that event was one of the pivotal moments in my spiritual progression.
I am grateful to have known you. Thank you very much
Sending love gratitude and blessings."
~ Kathy from Denver, Colorada
The Mindbox Is Impressive In Both Its Scope And Breath
"I was looking for a "Compendium of Wisdom" on various spiritual practices and problem solving.
I had accessed the site prior when I was looking into the Silva Method, and was impressed with Burt's live experiences along the path he had taken. In examining the Box, I was impressed with the variation and breath of the subject and chose to purchase it as both a "First Aid Kit for the Soul" and to supplement and augment my own study.
I will recommend it to everyone cause the work within is impressive in both its scope and breath. The coverage format (explanation and practice) is a very effective teaching technique and it is well organized and easy to understand and use.
I am quite satisfied with the products I have purchased and the customer service is prompt and well thought out. His products are definitely a cut above the usual type of material presented on these kinds of sites. Bravo, Burt!"
~ John Melka from Elgin, IL
We Love The MindBox Series
"My husband and I wanted to meditate and learn how to calm ourselves during various types of stress.
We LOVE using The MindBox series. We take turns chosing which CD we will listen before going to bed. We have definitely noticed a difference in how we handle the challenges of our lives. Thanks for everything!
We definitely recommend The MindBox to others. People have stress in their lives and learning new ways to help deal with it would be beneficial to anyone.
Burt's stories are wonderful, and we know most of them by heart."
~ Andrea Dorfner from Voorhees, New Jersey
The MindBox Helped Me to Balance My Lifestyle
"I wanted to improve meditation techniques especially for goal setting. I wanted to be on an emotional, spiritual, physical or material focus.
The MindBox has helped in speeding my point of focus. It's given me the techniques to "STOP", slow right down and see the situation for what it really is, at that point in time. Not later sitting down for meditation but right here and now! The MindBox is VERY useful.
I absolutely recommend this product. Especially for someone that has been meditating and needs to "fine tune" their intentions. This will get you way ahead in double quick time.
The MindBox is great. It's certainly helped me to balance my lifestyle. It is well presented and straight to the point."
~ Jose Coelho from Johannesburg, South Africa
Thank You Is An Inadequate Term To Express my Gratitude
"A higher level of consciousness has begun to set in, thanks to the MindBox.
You see, most times when we hear the Inner Voice that speaks to us in the silence of our thoughts we tend to neglect it. Then comes along someone like Burt Goldman. I listen to Burt early each morning at dawn.
Immediately after my meditation, I listen to the voice of Mr. Goldman and the connection is immediate. The wisdom therein opens up new dimensions that are simply phenomenal. Mr. Goldman's teaching takes me closer to the most precious gem that we are all blessed with but which we seldom touch upon - The Being that is inside us all.
I cannot stay away for a single day without the reassuring and knowledgeable voice of Mr. Goldman. I am grateful to him for marrying technology with his immense knowledge and spiritual insight to bring to ordinary men and women like me who thirst for a glimpse into what or who we are."
~ Bobby Menon from India
Wonderful Results, Really Amazing Actually
"I am working through some major changes in my life. I am recently separated from my husband of 18 years, I'm attending school to become an herbalist, and later a massage therapist. I am heavily in debt due to the stock market's fall and the fact that I was my family's sole financial support. I am attempting to make these positive changes to relieve the mental anguish that I suffered for so many years, a severe lack of ego strength, and other issues, as well as create a better life for myself and my children.
The MindBox has been wonderful to listen to. I often listen to it while I am out on long walks, and sometimes at bed time I listen to the meditation tracks. I have listened to some of the tracks many times and feel I need to absorb them before I move on to the further ones. Burt's voice is so soothing that it really relaxes me and enables me to listen and absorb a lot of his information and techniques.
The personal "magnet" technique has had pretty wonderful effects, really amazing actually. I have found the lessons and meditations extremely useful especially the Bagha and Bagha Duo techniques."
~ Ellen Santistevan from New Mexico, USA
Quest To Discover Life Purpose
"For the last few years I've been on a quest to discover life purpose, God, energy, and to understand the science and spirit of who we are. My goal for learning from the MindBox series was for overall self improvement and increased knowledge. I had known of the MindBox and was curious about it.
Four weeks ago I broke my ankle from a silly fall at work. Instinctively, I knew I had caused this harm to myself. So it sounded odd to me when people called it an "accident". I didn't know or understand the reasoning behind my "accident" but I knew it was no accident. The doctor ordered me off my feet for four weeks, so I took this opportunity to study the MindBox series. I wasted no time in placing the order!
My month off my feet is up on Tuesday (two more days), at which time I can return to work. This morning I practised the Magic Square (on crutches) for the first time. I have come to believe that I needed the four weeks to remove myself from a very long standing stressful work environment. I work with children who have been permanently removed from the care of their parents.
The MindBox has helped me identify the stress I live in every day while at work. It has also helped me to open myself to other possible positions both inside and outside the organization. The MindBox has helped me to create some long term goals and recognize the source of my stagnation. The MindBox has also given me resources to help me protect myself from the negative emotional energies that I will face once again when I return to work.
When I began listening to the CD's, the sense that I already knew this material overwhelmed me. It was like Burt was reminding me of long forgotten common sense. As the CD's continued though, new material was also discovered. I have come to accept that I absorb the energy around me and I need to separate that from my own. I feel I've developed my psychic ability to some degree and that I can trust what I sense now.
I have already recommended the MindBox to a coworker. She had heard of the American Monk. When I return to work, I expect that others will see the changes I've made and I will let them know where the credit is due and if they would like, I will direct them to the American Monk's material.
The American Monk is real. The techniques although they sound weird are real. I believe someday when we have a better understanding of quantum physics we will see the techniques as natural. We will look back on this time period and recognize we were in our infancy in understanding the bigger picture."
~ Barb McLean from Peace River, Alberta, Canada
The Techniques I am Learning Are Amazing
"I'm very pleased with my purchase. I am finding the material fascinating. The techniques I am learning are amazing and the results are automatic.
I highly recommend the mind box, especially those who feel they need a change.
Thank you for empowering me."
~ Robert Hall from Gaithersburg, MD.
It Makes Me Feel So Wonderful
"I bought the Mind Box and let it sit on a shelf for about 8 months. I am now using the programs daily.
I love the way Burt explains everything so that I can put what he says to work. I love the Daisy Pond Meditation. It just makes me feel so wonderful and I have a sense of peace afterwards. I have severe depression due to the death of my husband. I am listening to the CD about depression and it is really helping me. I am just at peace when I listen to all of his tapes
My goal is to get my life on track and be happy and productive once again.
I would recommend this and all his other programs. I have already recommended it to all my friends. Some have purchased it and they love it to.
Burt's style of communication is absolutely wonderful. His voice just flows through the lectures and the meditations. It is comforting to listen to him."

My Portable Help Center
"I needed to de-stress my life and find a way to determine my limitations so I could grow and be happy. The MindBox program is a series of small lectures and meditations that I learned to use quickly and quite successfully. I call it "my portable help center".
This program works so well for me that I have recommended it many times to friends and other people that I feel will benefit from the information and practices. Through the help in MindBox, I have learned to relax and to think more clearly from a relaxed mind.
I have a number of Burt's programs and I value each one of them. I use all of the programs as I need the subject I choose. I allow the programs to be an important opportunity in my life."

Got My Life Back On Track
"I took a Silva Mind Control class in Chicago back around 1970. I had practically forgotten most of what I had learnt until I chanced upon your free online classes.
They have been very beneficial to me. Thank you for reminding me to get my life back on track. I print out every lesson you send me. The ones I need the most I constantly refer to. Every morning and night I use your 3 to 1 method and see myself on my theater screen enjoying my hearts desire. I know it works because I have done it before."
~ Janie L. Johnson from Chicago, USA
It Helps Me to Overcome The Stress
"It helps me to relax when things get stressful.
At work, all I have to do is take a deep breath and tell myself to relax. At home I do the same thing when things get stressful with my children. Then, I read some of the tips and follow that.
I love the mind tips. They are informative and helpful and I will be applying them in getting my business going. We can never be fully stress-free but we definitely do not need to be over-stressed and with your mind tips and your free online course it helps me to overcome the stress and have a more perspective on life and see that I can accomplish anything."
~ Lois G. from USA
I Forged A Stronger Relationship With My Family
"While there were several goals related to ordering the MindBox, the primary reason was related to personal growth, health and relationships.
I was looking for a way to relax, and "get in touch" with myself as well as forge a stronger relationship with my family.
I would definitely recommend it as well as the website.
Great products! I appreciate and fully support the goals and mission of The American Monk :-)"

The Best On Self-Help!
"When I bought the MindBox, I wanted to change my negative thinking, which it did!
I really enjoyed the techniques for healing, which helped myself and my family members. I enjoy the meditations cause it helps me relax.
I have tried a lot of self-help meditation products but the MindBox is one of the best on self help.
I would highly recommend the MindBox and I do when people ask me.
I finally find that I am much more calmer, and clear in my mind."

Helps You To Relax & Get In Touch With Your Real Self
"My goal for using the MindBox was to learn how to deal with problems that are on the outside by getting in tune with my inner being.
I use the Daisy Pond and Center Stage most frequently and believe me it really helps you to relax and get in touch with your real self.
I do not get inundated with politics anymore because if I can control my thoughts and emotions, politics have little or nothing to do with the personal world that I am creating for myself.
My financial situation is constantly changing for the better. People are now willing to assist me at achieving financial freedom and I am amazed at how cheerful they are while helping me.
It seems miraculous to me. I simply meditate and picture these people smiling when I call them, and it works every single time.
I would recommend the MindBox to anyone who wants to experience living on a higher level of conscious, learn how the mind works, and the effect that positive thinking has on situations and relationships. Great product !!!"
~ Lofton Tucker from Fort Worth Texas
This Is One Of THE BEST Systems I Have Ever Used

I would absolutely recommend it to others! I suggest that everyone try the free lessons for themselves!! Nearly everyone I've told has gotten them!
I absolutely love the Mindbox lessons! Every single one is wonderful. "The Daisy Pond" meditation is absolutely beautiful. And, I have been doing the "Walking The Star" everyday for the past 4 days and feel fantastic! This is one of THE BEST systems I have ever used and will look forward to any new products that may be coming out in the future."

The Techniques Can Be Used To Great Effect At Any Time
"I first came across Burt Goldman's product while browsing the internet looking into methods that could hep me through a rough patch in my life.
I was finding it difficult to cope and needed to get in touch with my deeper self.
I have found the MindBox recordings very useful and have listened to them many times. The three two one method works well for me and enables me to touch base when things around get tough. I often now use the Bagha and the Wave of Goodness to send good vibes to those around me. I am so glad you made these cds and passed on some of your knowledge for our benefit. Thank you.
I would recommend purchasing the MindBox because it is crammed with so much useful information and gives access to techniques that can be used to great effect at any time."
~ Krysia Beynon from Swansea

Without Your Methods, I'd Still Be Living Out Only Half My Life And Potential
"Being a newbie and skeptic to any type of alternative thinking... I just have one word to say -It Blown me away!
It's funny how we trod through life getting caught-up in the details of everyday living and do not realize what power is all around us.
I feel like a horse whose blinders have been lifted for the first time! There's a whole other world, and reality out there that I didn't even know existed! What else can I say - if I were not employing your methods, I'd still be living out only half my life and potential!!"
~ Nicholas Doulos from USA
