Do you want to experience true and unconditional happiness, but you’re not sure where to start?

Are you tired of feeling like you’re just going through the motions in life?

Do you want to become familiar with what you can start doing today to realize unconditional happiness?

Do you want to learn how you can actually practice happiness?

In this program we’ll explore the irreducible ingredients of happiness, from Eastern and Western perspectives. By attending this program, you’ll learn practical steps that you can start taking today to realize genuine and lasting happiness. You’ll also discover ways to stop unconsciously making yourself and others miserable. You will learn how the ego, with all its blind spots, is so invested in continuing this twisted strategy.

Using the core principles of contraction and expansion, we’ll unfold this “combustion cycle of the path” and its role in happiness and unhappiness. By doing so, we’ll bring to light the unconscious processes that create suffering, and transform them into conscious processes that bring about happiness.

This program isn’t theoretical; you will learn how to practice happiness in daily life. You’ll leave with a new perspective, and liberating insights, that can be immediately applied. This program is suitable for both beginning and advanced practitioners. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to unlock the real secret to happiness.

These insights can lead you, just as they have Andrew, to dramatically simplify your life, free yourself from unconscious mental barriers, and smile like a Buddha at whatever life throws your way.

The Innermost Secret to Happiness . . . Really


In this course we will explore how contraction, born of ignorance and fear, is the root cause of suffering. Contraction gives birth to our very sense of self and other, and therefore lies at the heart of dissatisfaction and misery. In the Kabbalistic tradition, contraction is known as “tzimtzum”, which means “withdrawal.” Through this process, we withdraw from authentic contact with reality, and into inauthentic storylines about it. When viewed properly, contraction becomes an opportunity for transformation, and the reverse meditations — introduced in this program — help us transform contraction into openness, obstacle into opportunity. By embracing unwanted experiences, we can heal the fracture of duality and achieve a non-dual relationship with reality. By implementing the material presented in this program, we will discover a way to reverse our relationship to unwanted experiences, and realize unconditional happiness.

Some Topics We Will Explore:

  • Conditional vs unconditional happiness
  • The power of the unconscious mind
  • Substitute gratification vs authentic gratification
  • Happiness contemplations and exercises
  • Distress vs eustress (the good stress)
  • The illusion of free will
  • How to radically simplify your life
  • Discovering the secret motivations of your life
  • How reverse meditation leads to indestructible happiness
  • The omnipresent super-contractors
  • How to work with anxiety
  • The power of analytic meditation
  • Meditations that bring it all to life – and death
  • How to share these secrets with others
  • Unhappiness as developmental arrest

The Innermost Secret to Happiness . . . Really

A Personal Note From Andrew

“When I look back over my decades on the psycho-spiritual path, and across all the books and programs I’ve generated, one underlying theme reveals itself: happiness. How can we achieve it, and how can we dis-cover all the ways we keep ourselves from achieving it? My very first book, which I never submitted for publication, is an exhaustive examination of happiness, and it seeded the eight books that are now in print. This first (secret) book is entitled Out of Silence: On the Mechanics of Happiness. Thirty years after writing it, I’m finally “coming out” – out of silence – to share everything I’ve learned about happiness. The Buddha allegedly said, “I teach one thing, and one thing only: suffering, and the end of suffering.” It seems I’ve approached the same topic from the other end, and can say, “I teach one thing, and one thing only: happiness, and how to realize it.”

This is not just everyday happiness (though it is certainly included), but unconditional happiness ­­– advanced happiness. How can you find peace of mind, indestructible happiness, under any circumstance? For the first time ever, I’m directly presenting the topic that underlies all my work. What I’ve learned, practiced, and then applied to my life is something anybody can do. These insights can lead you, like they have me, to dramatically simplify your life, to free yourself from all the fetters that bind you at unconscious levels – and then smile, like a Buddha, at whatever life throws your way.”
