I'm the founder of the Transformational Meditation Group. My professional background is in the medical use of non-ionizing and ionizing radiation and I have been working in the public healthcare sector for over 16 years. I'm also certified in clinical hypnosis and a certified HeartMath Facilitator and Practitioner. I have over 20 years of experience with various forms of meditation. I'm fascinated with human development, cognitive neuroscience, psychology, epigenetics, and quantum physics. Besides my work in the healthcare sector, I also hold courses and workshops where I combine the latest in science with meditation and spiritual practices.

Irritations, distractions. Everyone will get confronted with it sooner or later when meditating. In this class, Seb will explain what it's all about as well as give you different strategies to deal with it.
During our sessions, we do a lot of visualization which is not always easy. In this week's podcast, Seb teaches a technique called Trataka where you'll learn a neat trick that can help you in your visualization efforts.
In my search to distance myself more from unethical, disrespectful companies, at the same time trying to provide a safe and secure space for those that follow the Transformational Meditation Group, I've decided to move away from Discord and use the more secure end to end encrypted Matrix network.
Discord has worked brilliantly for me during the past years. Especially when facilitating online meditation sessions with you all, while I'm away from home. However, in order to have a good time on Discord, members are required to be active. It's after all a group chat/messaging system with the option for audio/video meetings. I also had hoped to attract more teachers to the group in order to collaborate in facilitating more yoga/meditation sessions online. In the end, the whole Discord server ended up with me being the only active person while the around 150 members were basically waiting for me to entertain them. Since it costs me quite some money to keep the discord server up in addition to Discord becoming quite complicated to maintain, I decided to move the community over to the much more secure and decentralized Matrix network.
Apparently, some of the members of the discord server liked that idea and jumped right over to our community on Matrix.
Matrix is free to join with an already existing account from Google, Facebook, or Apple. You can also create a fresh account. When you join you will notice that it is quite similar to our community website and that it has the look and feel of apps like Telegram and other messaging apps. Communities are actually called Spaces and when you join the TMG-community space you will get the opportunity to join any room in that space that suits your interests. This means that, unlike discord channels, you will never be bothered by messages from rooms that you don't care about. Are you only interested in following along with our guided meditation sessions and want to follow what we post on the website here? Then you only have to join the Live Guided Meditation room and the Community Stream room. In addition, it is now easier than ever to join our weekly live Heart-Brain Coherence session straight from the Live Guided Meditation room but also from this website. No new accounts and extra logins are required.
Slowly but surely we are switching to services from providers that are more conscious of what they are doing. Providers that value their customers and don't disrespect them by selling their information, or trying to manipulate their information stream with algorithms tailored to do more harm than good. We went from Facebook to our own community website, powered by Tribe. We use Odysee and the Lbry network as an alternative to youtube. We are in the process of getting more and more people over to Vero as a far better alternative to Instagram. We are now switching from Discord to Matrix and will be completely free from Discord in the coming weeks. We have linked our Matrix community to Telegram so people can use both, without missing out on information.
I hope you appreciate our continuing efforts to make our services easier to access as well as provide you with better social media alternatives.

As more and more people start to become more consciously aware of the direction our world society is heading towards, more and more also recognize that they themselves can contribute to changing this direction. One example where things are changing is Social Media. Facebook's true intentions are coming more to the surface every day and this is dragging all their owned social media projects with them. Like Instagram and Whatsapp.
People have for a while now begun to quit using Facebook and also Whatsapp and Instagram are losing users by the day. The activity on the TMG facebook pages is going down rapidly and on average I see 3 of my Instagram followers deleting their accounts every day. People are tired of the unethical way their data is being exploited. One wrong word in a post and one of the many algorithms starts to block your account. People you have followed for years all of a sudden seem to go quiet, but in reality, an algorithm has decided that their content is not relevant for you. This community website has been started because the Facebook groups we had, had become unusable. Personally, I have never used Facebook privately, only for business.
You might wonder now if I will stop using all Facebook-owned Social Media altogether. I might eventually but not right now. I am still very fond of Instagram as it provides me with the tools I need to get and stay in touch with my around 2.5k followers. However, I'm not a stranger to other social media tools.
I recently stumbled upon Vero. A social media app that doesn't do advertisements and doesn't apply algorithms. I must say that it is a breath of fresh air. They don't have any live video streaming like Instagram which is a bit of a bummer. But they make it up with a genious way of sharing movies, books, music, and other stuff. So using Vero I can recommend to you books that hook into my course and workshop content. The same with movies and documentaries. I can now also share the music I use during my off-line sessions in town. When a user clicks on such a recommendation and buys the book, movie, or music piece, Vero gets a little money for it in return which I think is a good thing, because for now, Vero is still free to use.
I suspect that, like many other social media platforms, also Vero will eventually introduce us to advertisements. I find it hard to believe many people will stay if they start with a subscription model. But I do believe they will keep their promise when it comes to not using algorithms. At least not the type of algorithms that are manipulative.
So far I feel Vero is a network that is very much in line with what the future of social media holds for us when more and more people are taking matters into their own hands and decide to use tools from less manipulative and secretive companies.
If you want to give Vero a try download the Vero app for free. You can find my profile on Vero and the links to the app by clicking here.
Every Monday at 9pm UTC we do an Instagram Live where we practice the Heart-Brain Coherence technique. Often I recommend doing this technique in the morning for about 5-10 minutes, before starting your day. Many of you have asked if it was possible to get a recording of the shorter version of this meditation that you can play in your morning. So here it is with a short explanation for those that are new to the technique.
