These are the recommended lectures for those exploring the Path of Mastery and the Four Disciplines.
The Four Disciplines start with personal power - which is to come back to oneself and one’s powers, and to help one move away from one’s enslavement. The next is the limitless, to encounter one's real nature and to tame the mind, and then one enters the discipline of encountering, in which one challenges the false self and starts to rise beyond it. The fourth is the samadhi truth which is integration.
I experienced numbness for many years. I even came to the point of not believing I existed. Then a friend introduced me to Discipline One. Now having completed it, I have learned how I can take charge of my life. I am more independent, I am hungry to learn even more and am taking one step at a time. My fear is diminishing. My energy is rising and i even feel glimpses of greatness. I have learned that I am not what I was told. I am Asha and I am becoming a Friend to Mankind.
Discipline One has profoundly changed me and the quality of my life. Thanks to Master Dhyan Vimal, I have connected with my true self, and love myself for the first time. I have been able to step out of this prison/hell that I have been living in until now. I am very grateful to Master for giving me to myself. As I was completing the workbook and watching the videos, he was answering the exact questions that I had been thinking about. He has great compassion and an excellent understanding of the human experience and what it takes to reinvent ourselves, which results in what we would like to embody and attain our highest. Thank you Master, words do not touch the deep gratitude I am experiencing towards you for developing this amazing program.
Taking part in the Discipline One programme has helped provide insights into years of questions I had about myself. Throughout the programme … if one is truthful and open ... you can expect to experience sorrow, guilt, anxiety ... followed by warmth, peace in knowing, welcomed vulnerability, sheer joy, and freedom! I purposely did the programme a bit more slowly so that I could become immersed in each part without being overwhelmed with what was. It worked! Who I feel I am now is a far cry from who I was when I started the programme. Being an adventurous person ... I rank this up there as one of my most memorable journeys! Thank you!
I loved this Discipline One. It made me have so many realizations of the negative beliefs I was holding and how I can shift my energy to bring more positive experiences into my life. I have only been doing the Mastery Meditation for a couple days and I already feel and see a major difference. I see myself in a whole new light. Thank you!
I am very grateful to have completed Discipline One. This discipline awakened my right to becoming a conscious human being and to direct this living in deeper awareness, creativity, joy and be intelligent to shape reality. This discipline is very important for me in order to participate with the whole, as a friend to mankind.
It is an excellent program that I have ever been through. Lots of people have been in search, keep running from one programme to another programme that has yet to find them, this will be for them. We have many ideas that being sold by society that moves us away from recognising that the ultimate answer is actually within us. The best comment that I would say about this programme is to reveal you, rise in you without escaping.

I want to do it again. It was tiring and powerful … I want to be the person I am more and deeper. I realise I am most of the time aware of who I am and that it is played out more now since I started this process of enquiry than ever before. I have lots to draw on … I have lots to give and I am doing it in a way that is more mindful and not influenced. I feel better about who I am, as long as I go beyond the ego.
I am thankful my wife introduced me to the teachings of Dhyan Vimal. His is insightful, and Discipline One has set me on a course towards awareness. I have learned tools that I can use on my own towards a deeper understanding of myself and of humankind.
The gratitude and sense of ease and grace that I feel from having experienced this journey of self-exploration through the practices, and enquiry within this course has been so rewarding. I trust that my being has the capacity for truly showing up for self and others in this world, in a way that I had not fully claimed in the past. I feel as though a seed has been planted in the seat of my heart to fully embrace life and commit to this path of love, beauty and truth that I choose to show up for in this lifetime. I feel the sense of courage and strength and willingness to be in my full authenticity and in full reciprocity as a human being on this earth that gives so much to all of creation.
I have learned so much about all the old beliefs that I have carried with me, and the life that I had unconsciously chosen. I now have the tools to create the life I want.
Discipline One is a beautiful work of art that allowed deeper and clearer insight into my personal embodiment. The teachings have not only touched me, but everyone I know come into relationship with. My husband has expressed his gratitude and my students and clients are profoundly affected. I feel blessed to have access to such teachings. Thank you Master Vimal and everyone who worked to make them accessible online.
I was hesitant to try but a suggestion was brought to me to help me through some issues that I had been facing and not able to deal with. My background is to always help others but I always failed at taking care of myself. I opened my mind, heart and it brought me to a beautiful friend who opened me to the talks and teachings of Master Dhyan Vimal. It has been an up and down roller coaster and helped me realize there were things deep down that I did not even know were effecting me. Just to recognize these things I feel I'm starting to see myself and know that I am moving forward in my journey. Thank you
Thank you Master Dhyan, I am now aware of my ability to choose my experiences and not be subject to them. What a gift, with this I can change my outcome. I think one of the biggest realisations that has been masked is that I am alone, I know this but saying it and not making it about loneliness is so different, of course I am the only one that can make a difference in my life but once and for all claiming that and, knowing I can make the difference for me, that’s awesome! The meditation has really help to cement the feeling of "A". Without this feeling of me, I can do nothing ... but with it I can do it all.
This is a very good and helpful series to experience. Many of these concepts are things that we know on some level, whether or not you fully understand them. Plus you may not think about it in exactly the same way.
Discipline One has been a great support in recognizing when and how I loose myself in thoughts, emotions, people etc. and forget who I truly am. Every day since I completed the program, I keep on discovering limiting beliefs in me that I was not aware of before and in the light of that I see them fall away too, creating more space and silence inside. I find it a rare opportunity to be guided by a Master who at the same time is a skilled teacher and I can only recommend Discipline One to anyone who is interested in transforming their lives.

I finally did it! Words can't describe how life changing this course was for me! The creator of this course is just pure genius. I found out a lot of things about myself, which I would have never unraveled on my own. You can't believe how freeing to know and experience the realization that I am a creator and I shape my own destiny. I can choose! These 3 words... I can choose … is the best realisation and the best gift I can give myself. I feel I am restored back to me. The journey is still long ahead but I am looking forward to every single moment of it. Thank you from the bottom of my heart and Love to ALL!
Discipline One is a very inspiring journey through life experiences and meditation. The wisdom shared in the lectures helped me a lot to calibrate my internal compass and to awaken a high energy flow. Thank you very much to all who contributed to the programme!
I am so thrilled that I chose to pursue Discipline One. It has helped me put in a foundation of new belief and to discard what was no longer serving me. I recommend it for anyone who wishes to love themselves more deeply and to live out their true potential in the world.
The course is transformational. But this is so much more than a course. It has been a journey of the heart, and it has led to the very source of me. Thank you for making Discipline One available online.
It took a while for me to finish this course because my life at the time was in a bit of an upheaval, but I am glad that I did. Master Dhyan Vimal says truths that are so simple and so easy to apply. I am priviledged to have done this course!
After 3.5 years I finished the first time D1 online. Wow, thank you! What a wonderful Discipline to reflect yourself, how your lies and egos come to the surface … how you are trapped in your beliefs you carry… to come back to me by me, to give birth to the creator … to start living my life. Feel so blessed to have met you Master, thank you. In gratitude.
I am doing Discipline One for the third time, still lot of nonsense within me that need to be dropped. I just want to say a BIG Thank you to master to design this work that is transforming me to be a better person to live my life at the fullest. I am ever grateful to existence, I am able to meet a master in this life. Everyone involved had done a very remarkable job. Lots of things are happening in and with Master's world, I am blown off! I don't know how to write out my feelings/ heart. Thank you Master, Thank you Master, Thank you Master.
I have just finished re-doing my Discipline One, in this new online format, after almost 4 years. It has yet again been a profound tool to exercise the practice of awareness. Since having an incredible and wonderful life altering change the first time I completed the Discipline, I have continued to study with Master, follow his teachings, attend his retreats, participate on mysanggha. I recently had the calling to go back to the foundation (Discipline 1) and to excavate yet more layers of my unconscious. It seems as time passes, as a devoted student to this work, the less I know... because the more of me is revealed to me, that I never knew was there. It would have been such a shame, if I had never come to this... if I had never come to see my own beauty, my own strength, my own nature, for what it truly is. I am only still just getting to know it now, and I am far more, than I have ever known me to be. Discipline One is the mirror for me to see, to practice looking, to practice seeing, to practice choosing, all from the center point, which is the actual me... the me that is so often absent, when I fall victim to that which I have created unconsciously around me. Discipline 1 is like a vacation from the mind, from the clouded veils of excuse, from the sob story, from the hiding away, from the pain, from the unconscious programming that runs deeply within. Discipline One allowed me to be an archeologist yet again, to discover the more of me... it invited me to the most sacred meeting... the meeting that I was born for... the meeting of me as the master of my own reality. What a blessing! And as a master of my own reality I can practice conscious choosing... and the miracle of who and what I am, the chooser in me is born. I am forever grateful for this course!!! Thank you Master! Not to mention the incredible and convenient, simple and easy to use online format... wow!
My experience with Discipline One was really powerful, I have always been a believer in knowing that we create our own reality, however I learned how my beliefs create my own reality and feel like I will be able to always look to the ABC to guide me
Excellent program. Very deliberate and concise. I enjoyed the practicality of the work and the motivating force of the lectures.
This programme should be valued at well over a thousand dollars. It is extremely well thought out and thorough. Master Dhyan's teaching is presented in a way that is very effective and sure to bring results if followed from beginning to end. With my busy schedule it took me two weeks to complete, and from the first day to now there have already been many positive changes taking form. I'm already looking forward to doing Discipline two; hopefully the online version will be ready soon! Thank you so much for putting this amazing program together.
I just completed Discipline One on-line. What a brilliantly designed course! The combination of workbook, lectures, reflection and exercises are very effective. I learned much about myself, more each day as I went through the workbook. On the last few pages, I could see the root beliefs that have stopped me, and how to shift. I recommend this to anyone who wants to live their life fully, and contribute meaningfully.
I have thoroughly enjoyed the experiences and unfolding of my new vision of living. With the meditation and breathe work I will continue to develop my new way of being. The concept of losing my ego is magic for my life going forward. This philosophy and process has helped me immensely in my happiness personally and in my business life. Thank you!
Discipline One is astounding in how it is put together, step by step to help you unravel the masks and get to the real you. It's powerfully transformative and I'd recommend this process to everyone. My heart is full of hope!
AMAZING!!!! This work has released me from the bondage of my beliefs. I've done a lot of work on myself, but I couldn't get to the core issues that were working against my efforts. The questioning, the lectures, the breathing and meditation all work together to make you look and FEEL your life and your creation from so many angles that you cannot miss what's working against your creation. If you want freedom to create anew, this is it!!!
I feel love, and gratitude. This is exactly what i needed, in the right time. in a way the truths shared are not new to me, but something in me and in the message of this work meets ripens. the energy resonates and vibrates into deep places in me and the shift is made possible on a deep level for the first time. it is a true pleasure, thank you.
What a blessing... There isn't words to describe what this program and meeting you have done for my life in such a short period of time... Thank you!!! My journey has just begun.
I was not able to follow the suggested schedule for myriad reasons, but listening to the last few lectures today was a great way to re-ignite my innate knowingness that everything is okay, and that it is all up to ME, that I AM the only one who gets to decide what happens to me, and how I happen to the world around me. I know it's going to take vigilance because pervasive negativity abounds, and it requires immense strength to stay on top of it, to overcome it, to make and stick with the choice to overrule it all. But the knowingness is so awe-inspiring; that in and of itself makes the journey far less daunting. The A,B,C exercise is a very valuable exercise that has helped me immensely, I actually step back now before reacting - whereas I used to react first and think about it after - often with regret. I look forward to keeping these lessons at the forefront of my mind and to see where this takes me. I know the trip will be amazing!!!!
I really enjoyed the Discipline One programme. I have encountered several other teachers before this one and all have given me great value, but as a tool to invoke excellent, immediate and profound results, the tools and perspective provided here are phenomenal. It has changed how I communicate with the world, I thought I was being responsible before the programme, but I gained a much higher greater distinction on where I was actually hiding from the truth and instead reacting to beliefs and judgments. It is a fantastic programme to set a foundation of learning to be responsible.
Discipline One makes you recognize the old, become aware of the new, and gives you instructions how to embody the ability to be the new. It gives you a clear idea how to leave the old beliefs and judgments behind and how to rise to your best by embracing the new. The information is invaluable, and the extensive approach of Discipline 1 makes it easy to absorb all the useful information. A must for all! I can't wait to shed more of my 'snake skin' and look for the next 'snake skin' shed session!

I found the Discipline One to be the most complete well put together program I have ever experienced. I have been deeply exploring many of these concepts in many different formats for approximately five years now and this program brought them altogether in the most profound and beautiful way. The world needs to hear what Master Dhyan Vimal has to say and experience it for themselves. I look forward to working further with this material and experiencing Discipline Two.
I believe I was introduced to Dhyan Vimal not by accident. It was an introduction by a friend for a purpose and it somehow led to Discipline One. And after coming for Discipline One I realize that it was called for and as I was chatting with some of the friends here, it was my time that I needed to spend alone. And just before I came here, I was telling myself … you know I have been to so many meditation sessions and so many discovery sessions I wondered what I could learn from this session and only when I had that five days to myself I realize that there’s so much more I had forgotten about myself and so much more I need to find out about myself.
As much as I try to live life consciously from choices, I realize there is more and I still need to dive into that space and make those choices consciously. It is a very interesting process where you spend time with yourself and in spending time with your self, you unfold more of yourself and I found freedom in that, I found freedom in that. And in that time you spend with yourself, you realize that that freedom expands and when that freedom expands you feel good about it. You realize you don’t judge whether it is right or wrong, but you realize you have either held on to that or it is time to let go. And I found in letting go of that regardless whether it is a memory or a belief, I find a space to create more.
So I was doing the last page of the whole manual I found that to be the most interesting one about walking the choice. And I think in that whole manual that was the 3 words that hit me most powerfully and that all happened just a couple of minutes ago, walking the choice. And I think if I consciously live that three words god knows what could happen. And I can feel it already right now, as I come to the end with this session, I already feel it that walking that choice is already going to create a pretty extraordinary life from here on. That is my feel of it.
I came across Mastery almost by accident and I enrolled on the 1st Discipline course almost reluctantly and with a bit of skepticism. But to my surprise the First Discipline with the mastery meditation and masters breath, have really been a life transforming experience. In fact I would rate it probably the most significant life transforming experience that I have been through in my life. The mastery meditation enables me to walk the truth so to speak. The First Discipline has helped me discover my truth, truth about myself and together they have changed my life in many ways. From my personal point of view I feel that I am now happier with myself. I never used to be happy with myself as a person but the combination of the First Discipline and mastery meditation has helped me in changing myself to be more like what I want to be.
From my relationship point of view, I find that I am now having better relationships with my family, my spouse and even my friends. But most importantly I find that it has helped me a lot, profoundly in fact in my profession. Through this mastery meditation and the First Discipline, I find that besides understanding myself, knowing myself, I began to see my patients better. I began to see their point of view and understand their feelings and their fears and therefore I find that I can get on better with my patients and that has really helped me in my profession. There is less aggravation and less conflict with patients and in fact it has actually helped me foster really good relationships with my patients. And I find that really is one of the most important gains that I have made out of this mastery meditation.
It is difficult to put into words because … I am so excited because I have learned about humanity and my role in that and it is not just about me and my little bubble of reality in my life with all the stuff that comes and goes, the good and the bad. It is about sharing the gift of life and celebration of life and helping people experience what I am experiencing. Boy, life doesn’t get better than that to me. So my life is changed as a mother, as a companion, as a friend, as an artist. I can’t wait to get home tonight and start living my life in this new peace and love that … I have to work hard, I have to be diligent every day until it is mastered and I just feel so blessed that I have created this weekend and taken discipline one in my life, and that I am ready for it, and my brain is matured to accept it, and my heart is open enough to want to share.
Discipline One is a profound experience. It is an experience of emancipation, and when I speak of emancipation I am speaking about released from the false ideas about who I am and how I can be really authentic in the world. I have been looking for a long time for this and it is a delightful experience to have encountered master and his work because in really profound way it has impacted my thinking but only that, it has impacted how I am at the core level. He has a really elegant system of making something, which is profound, simple in appearance but profound in its impact.
My name is Astrid Cameron Kent, live in Whistler, happily married. I have been a long time student of transformation, of possibility and spirituality. I have practiced yoga for long … many many years, done a lot of yoga work … done a lot of transformational courses and have loved them all. And I just completed Discipline One and it rocked my whole world. It is really what I have been searching for. It is really what I have been up to aligning with in my life. It is what I have been looking to be congruent with. It brings all the teachings that I have learnt in this lifetime and many others together in a way that makes a lot of sense, gives my life a new and added power and clarity and honor.
All the other programmes that I have ever done, it has always left me with some new knowledge, and some possibility and transformation no question, and my life has been altered but it always left me with the power sitting over there with someone else. Maybe they knew a little bit more, maybe they studied just a bit more maybe they knew those yoga sutras so well, and if I just studied those yoga sutras all 4 chapters, eventually something will really sink in a little bit deeper, there was just that lingering thought. So this process was the most powerful, validating experience, because it really left me to me for my process, and now it is my process. And this is mine and this is mine to honor and to share and it is my choice.
I see Discipline One as really the first step in reclaiming your own life back. Most of us live our lives in a coma, semi asleep, semi running programmes of the world, semi running stuff which is not authentic. One thing about Discipline One is, it just brings you back to that point where you reclaim yourself.
Finally I am actually taking a look at myself. All this while I have been busy encountering things that are outside of me, I have been just reacting … spending a lot of time reacting and struggling basically. And when nature gave me a very very strong knock finally I started taking a look inside myself. And Mastery was a very very strong guide for me to start taking a look at who I am and started finally getting connected to myself. As I started to look at myself … I started noticing many things … many of my entrainments, many of my viewpoints and how it has effected my reality up to now. With my new viewpoints, the way I look at things now, is very very different, circumstances are circumstances and I choose how my life is going to be. Mastery has taught me all of this … and I am looking forward to this journey of my own life. I am very very excited about it … I am looking forward to it and I am actually having joy in the ups and downs of my life.
My association with personal mastery began when many aspects of my life became stagnated and I was seemingly fatigued by my mundane rudimentary and daily frustrations. I did not have any sense of purpose; everything was in comparison to something or someone. I wanted to know my own purpose but I had no clue on how to come to this. As such I took the liberty to venture into an investigative journey of rediscovering myself and dissecting every single aspect of my life to find my true nature in the absence influence and upbringing. This was my first taste of personal mastery. I realised that at least 95% of the decisions in my life was caused by me and not another and not by a circumstance. I was the culprit of my stagnation and my frustration. When I was able to see and accept this, there was a great degree of liberation that dawned on me. My body felt lighter and my shoulder’s did not have any loads to carry as I realised all such pressures and negatives in my life were self-inflicted.
Knowing this, I was able to recognize that I had a great degree of potential that was yet to be explored and I was willing to put myself at stake without worrying about a consequence. At a time when it was raining in my life, I merely danced in the rain and made do to survive and in that I started mastering patience instead of chasing for things to happen. Every aspect of my life was at a low during this period ranging from my personal life to my career. Nevertheless it was during this period my potential was recognized and given notice as I lived in celebration and everything I did had a sense of fun in it. I did not think beyond tomorrow neither did I live based on the past. Everyday was a new day and everyday I created something new in my life in different forms and degrees. Every problem becomes an opportunity and every frustration is an illusion. Today I live in this truth and it has revolutionized who I am. Mastery is a very personal journey and a private one and only in that space was I able discover my potential.
