We have a secret to tell you...

The secret is that you are already a completely whole, perfect person. You are not damaged goods, you are not incomplete, you are not flawed, you are not unfinished, you do not need remodeling, fixing, polishing or major rehabilitation. You already have within you everything you need to live a wonderful life. You have common sense, wisdom, genius creativity, humor, and self-esteem. You are pure potential. You are missing nothing.

A User’s Guide to Being Yourself will give you a chance to meet yourself at a deeper level, where you’ll discover how amazing human beings actually are and how to bring your genius, creativity, and wisdom to life!

Mavis Karn is my long-time mentor perhaps best known for a short piece called “The Secret”, or as we now like to call it “a user’s manual for human beings”. It was originally written for a group of young people incarcerated in the American midwest, and has found its way around the world and into numerous bestselling books including Richard Carlson’s What About the Big Stuff?


If you’ve got a few minutes, let Mavis read it to you and imagine it was written especially for you:

A User's Guide to Being Yourself

In April, 2023, Mavis and I spent a week in conversation exploring why human beings are kind of a big deal and what’s possible when you wake up to who you are and how well you’re made.

The material was so good we spent seven months editing together the best of those conversations into a new twenty part video series called A User’s Guide to Being Yourself.

Cost: $199

I recently binged the Mavis Karn videos/audios. Intellectually, I already knew the material was solid, and I can even explain it to others. But emotionally, spiritually, I could feel the understanding was not marbled into my essential personal bedrock. Listening to the Mavis conversations and stories very gently unfolded something inside me. The gentleness of her voice, the lightness of her approach, the sureness of her belief and trust, all worked on me. And the change I am feeling is something I can’t really articulate very well. Except that I feel a little more relaxed about saying to others what is on my mind (without worrying about possible reactions), I notice my habits of thought and behavior and just notice them without condemning them, I feel myself trusting life a little more and relaxing my grip a little more. Lightness, smiling, gentleness — no need to harsh on my Self.

The key message that relaxed me so much: relax into your intuitive wisdom, and let the wisdom decide the next steps. I’ve always heard about letting the mind settle, don’t shake the snow globe, yeah yeah yeah, but for whatever reason this time I HEARD it. Mavis’ examples of letting the ego mind settle so the wisdom mind can suggest what to do next is really what leapt out at me. When I find myself holding imaginary arguments in my head or putting on headphones to listen to podcasts, I stop and let my head quiet down so there’s less noise overall. That’s been really impactful on me lately.

Anyway, I encourage folks to check out the recordings, including Michael’s solo talk that’s included as a bonus. I think listening to them all as close together as possible makes for a wonderful cumulative emotional experience.
