Conscious Conversations

May 27, 2019
In Conscious Growth Club we’re exploring a new way of providing value for members, which is to have a “conscious conversation” with a very growth-oriented person and invite all members to participate. This is a live video call where I have an interesting conversation with someone, say for about 90 minutes. All members can join the call and participate in a live text chat as we go. So it’s a similar format to how we did the Deep Abundance Integration live calls back in August. It’s not an interview or a presentation. It really is an organic conversation, so it could go any which way depending on our interests and where the energy wants to flow. These calls are likely to be upbeat, playful, and fun. With the live chat aspect, CGC members can also participate by sharing feedback, discussing ideas with each other, and asking questions. And then we can use other resources like the forums for follow-up discussion after the call. We’re doing our first call of this type on Tuesday morning with a fellow member who recently went through a major improvement in his dating and relationship life, so this is a chance to talk more deeply with him about how he did it. And more generally we could also talk about how to go from relationship scarcity to relationship abundance. I see this as a nice way to explore and share the practical, human side of personal growth. It’s useful to learn how real people tackle real challenges and get real results under real-world conditions. The process is rarely linear. Presently there are no plans to share these calls outside of CGC. While we could do a call like that, I think it’s better for depth, honesty, and intimacy if we don’t broadcast these outside the group. However, we are going to record and archive these calls, so they’ll be added to the CGC member portal. Consequently, anyone who joins CGC next year or beyond will be able to watch these recordings and also participate in any new calls we do going forward. For now this is just an experimental idea that we’re testing, but there seems to be enough support for it already that we’re very likely to incorporate it as a permanent feature going forward.

Conscious Growth Club Surges to More than 150 Members

May 3, 2019

Our recent Conscious Growth Club launch went well, growing the group by more than 60%. Now we have more than 150 members teaming up to create an incredible growth-oriented year together, which is terrific.

The current mix in the club is roughly 60% previous members and 40% new members who just joined us. That’s a really nice blend. The new members are bringing a delightful infusion of fresh energy into the group, and the continuing members are enthusiastically welcoming them and helping them get oriented.

I also feel like the group just received a major intelligence upgrade in the process: more smart people, wider and deeper skills represented, more experience, and more resourcefulness all around.

Some members are already meeting up in person too, which is great to see. Part of our roadmap includes incorporating live events (possibly starting in 2020), so we can all get together in person as well. This year I intend to continue making the online experience of Conscious Growth Club even better since that keeps it highly accessible.

Most likely we’ll reopen for new members in April 2020. So if you didn’t join this time, you may want to mark your calendar to check in with us then. Or you can join our email list to be notified.

I especially love that we’re a global group. We have members on every continent but one. I’m sure you can guess who the holdout is. Perhaps we’ll eventually recruit a member from McMurdo Station. 😉

Conscious Growth Club Now Open for Enrollment

Apr 26, 2019

After two years in early access mode, I’m happy – okay, delighted! – to announce that Conscious Growth Club is officially launching and is open for new members to join, starting now. This is the most comprehensive personal growth program and support group we’ve ever created.

We’re only opening for a short time though, just through May 1st, and this will be our only enrollment period for all of 2019. So if you want to join this year, now is the time. Watch the video on the Conscious Growth Club page to learn the details.

Interview with Know Pain Know Gain Podcast

Apr 8, 2019

Jay Rooke recently interviewed me for his Know Pain Know Gain: Entrepreneurship Made Real podcast. We talked about personal development, transformation, entrepreneurship, and trust-based marketing. The episode is about 55 minutes, and you can listen to it at the link above.

Submersion Playlists Added

Mar 16, 2019

The Submersion Playlists bonus is published. All Submersion participants now have access to it in the Submersion portal.

There are 15 different playlists to choose from, each containing 8 to 16 of the 60 core lessons. This gives you another way to explore the material, especially when you’d appreciate a refresher in one or more areas after completing the full course.

The last two playlists include the 10 shortest lessons for when you’d love a quickie (most are under 15 minutes), and the longest lessons for when you’re craving a deeper lesson (most are over 35 minutes).

Submersion Playlists

Text transcripts for lessons 1-16 are published too, and transcripts for lessons 17-24 will be added soon. We’ll continue adding more transcripts until all 60 lessons are transcribed from audio to text, so you have multiple ways to engage with the material. And there are several more bonuses to be added as well, including the Submersion Summary Guide and the Subjective Reality Explorer’s Guide. Submersion members will receive these bonuses automatically as soon as they’re ready.

Currently there are 597 people enrolled in Submersion, many of whom have already finished the core 60 lessons, and more continue to join every week, so we’ll be passing 600 soon. I love and appreciate the fascinating feedback that members have been sharing about this unique course, so please keep it coming! 🙂

Physicists Demonstrate That We Don’t Have a Shared Objective Reality

Mar 13, 2019

A real experiment based on a previous thought experiment from Nobel Prize winning physicist Eugene Wigner was recently performed. The result demonstrated that we don’t live in a single common objective reality that we all observe the same way. The experimenters observed two different but conflicting realities from a 6-photon experiment.

Read about the experiment from MIT Technology Review here:

A quantum experiment suggests there’s no such thing as objective reality

And you can read the abstract and download the PDF report of this experiment from a Cornell University website here:

Experimental rejection of observer-independence in the quantum world

Perhaps you don’t just see reality differently than others do. Perhaps you are indeed living in a unique and different reality.

Submersion Transcripts Now Being Added

Feb 12, 2019

Lesson transcripts are being added to Submersion this month. The first transcript for lesson 1 has already been published to the Submersion portal. Many more will follow in the weeks ahead until we’ve published all 60 lesson transcripts.

These transcripts are only being lightly edited, so they’re essentially word for word transcriptions of the audios, which can be nice for those who’d like to review the lessons as text.

I estimate that Submersion’s transcripts will total around 250,000 words when they’re completed, so it’s a substantial amount of material. It’s easily digestible in audio form though since it’s only 26 minutes per day on average.

For the ebook version of Deep Abundance Integration, we’re editing the content a lot to make it flow better in written form, which is considerably more work. I anticipate that we’ll have the first volume of 10 lessons published sometime next week. It’s coming in around 65,000 words presently (just for volume 1), but we’re still doing some editing on it.

There’s a lot of overlap between Submersion and Deep Abundance Integration participants. Most people who take one course are also signing up for the other. Some have shared that when they’ve finished one course, they want to continue the journey.

Our main focus for the rest of this month is to continue creating and publishing more supporting material for these two courses.

I expect that these courses will likely still be available 10-20 years from now since the content of both is timeless and universal. So far people from about 70 countries are currently participating, which is great to see.

I’m really enjoying creating these long form courses since it provides the opportunity to explore a topic very deeply and to do so with the most interested people.

Are We Living in a Simulation?

Dec 31, 2018

Here’s an interesting video shared by a Submersion deep diver about the possibility that this reality is actually a simulation or virtual world:

More than 500 of us are actively exploring and experimenting with this very real possibility in a 60-day Submersion deep dive experience. As you might expect, we’re discovering that this rabbit hole is indeed full of rabbits. You’re welcome to join us, but only if you’re feeling brave since it will probably break your old reality. 😉

30 Submersion Lessons Now Published

Dec 27, 2018

Today I recorded and posted 5 more Submersion lessons (#26-30), so half of the core 60-day course is now published. We’re right on schedule to have all 60 lessons published by Jan 31st. We also passed 500 sign-ups (currently at 504).

This co-creative approach is still working well with a steady stream of daily feedback coming in. By the time I’ve published a new batch of lessons, there’s enough feedback on the previous ones to inspire ideas for the next batch. The results people have been sharing along the way are powerful yet wildly unpredictable; this exploration is so different for each person.

I’m still wrapping my head around this type of group online exploration, which was an experiment for me as well. Instead of creating a course and then launching it, we launch it first and then co-create it experientially with the people who sign up for it. This approach aligns eerily well with what we’re covering in the Submersion course too. It’s stretching me to lean into more trust, courage, and cooperative creativity. Creative work flows through me every week, but I don’t feel like I’m controlling it. It feels like the course has a mind of its own, and I’m serving as a vehicle to facilitate its manifestation.

Creating a course for 500+ committed deep divers is very different than creating it solo and then releasing it when it’s 100% done. In some ways this co-creative approach is easier because I’m fueled by all the social energy; that aspect can be creatively stimulating, inspiring, and rewarding. However, maintaining overall life balance during this time feels more difficult. It’s like being inside a creative tunnel where it’s difficult to pay attention to anything else. The nature of this particular exploration into the matrix-like nature of reality can lend itself to a bit of obsession as well.

The past 4 weeks have felt almost unreal at times – so much growth and change packed into such a relatively short stretch of time. Part of me wants to pause, process what’s been happening, and try to make sense of it while another part wants to keep flowing with this surge of creative energy. Even sharing this quick update is giving me an idea for another lesson to design, almost like instructions are being downloaded, and I have to go transcribe them.

This type of co-creative energy is a strange animal… wild yet disciplined, obsessive yet patient, chaotic yet structured. It works amazingly well, and someday I’d like to understand why. In fact, diving into Submersion is partly inspired by the desire to deepen my understanding of this type of energy flow.

Easy Course Login Links Added

Dec 22, 2018

Today I added a convenient login link to the footer of every page of the public website, so if you’re enrolled in either the Deep Abundance Integration or Submersion courses, you can easily login to your account without having to remember or bookmark the login link.

Just visit any page of the StevePavlina.com website, scroll to the bottom, and you’ll find the login link in the footer. Easy!

You can also access the login link from the Courses menu at the top of any page of the site. Perhaps even easier!

These courses have been super popular with hundreds of people enrolled in each one (Deep Abundance Integration is approaching 1000 sign-ups, and Submersion is coming up on 500), so we’re definitely going to create and launch more courses in 2019.

This co-creative model is working incredibly well, and your input really does shape the direction of each course, not just for yourself and the other participants going through it as we create it, but for everyone who enrolls henceforth, even years or decades later.

Submersion has 22 out of 60 lessons published so far, with more being added each week. So there’s still time to participate in the co-creative phase of this deep dive if you wish. It will be fully complete by January 31, 2019. The feedback on this one has been absolutely stellar, and most people are less than 10 days into it. More lessons will be published this coming week.
