Sensei has always aimed to bring new, powerful, dramatic, distinctive methodologies to beloved parts of the world like Sri Lanka. Mastery of Self through NLP is a notable example, as were Continuous Improvement (CI), Leadership Quest, Community Building with Dr. Peck's Foundation for Community Encouragement and many others. We are delighted to invite a very intimate group to spend two days with Omar and the team and be introduced to Releasing. Also presented under the rubric of The Sedona Method (same methodology with a different presenter), it has been hailed by people like Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen, was showcased in the best-selling docu-film 'The Secret', has been the subject of numerous testimonials from leading authorities like Dr. David Hawkins, Michael Singer and others in terms of being an exemplar of "inside out" breakthroughs.
The founder and originator, Lester Levenson, was considered a true "living master" and perhaps the only "realized master" from the West, who found a way to bring the wisdom of Eastern approaches, and render them practical, accessible, and both teachable and learnable without going to an ashram, or detaching from life.
Omar has been working with some of its next generation pioneers and leading teachers over the last several years, and has created a wonderful immersive introduction to it. We will be inviting some of those leaders to Sri Lanka, and this privileged group of insiders will be able to avail of their advanced sessions with this marvelous base.
At the age of 42, a businessman, who had been a physicist, was given two weeks to live. He went home to die, and decided to delve into the essence of life, en route to leaving it. Instead, three months later, his "damaged heart" was healed, and he went on to live a further 40 years, never seeing a doctor again, effortlessly creating a business fortune (which he gave away), and having launched this remarkable methodology that continues to thrive and proliferate today. Our aim is to bring it to Asia, giving the gift of a wisdom that was born here, back in a way ideally suited for the 21st century.
Lester discovered a way to tap our natural ability to LET GO:
To let go of fear
To let go of anger
To let go of the negative feelings that plague us - not by will power here, but by dissolving and outgrowing them.
Lester developed a way to tap our natural ability to let go of any painful, unwanted feeling in the moment, and to therefore radiate our natural capacity to be courageous, to manifest what we really, deeply want, and to be at peace, to be increasingly imperturbable.
In these 2 days, we'll introduce a remarkable map of our emotions, and it rings so true that we've found after years of working with NLP, with the work of Dr. Peck, Carl Rogers, Zen and Buddhism, and more, that nothing has been more powerfully, inescapably true. And we'll place all of self-development along this map, so we can locate things we already do, and still be able to access their gifts.
But you'll also learn how to go far beyond the mind, and tap the capacity of our true innate capabilities, of our pure Beingness. You need believe nothing. Like Mastery, you experience it all, test it all, prove it all yourself.
John Gray, Author of 'Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus,' said of this approach "a practical, wise and proven formula for emotional and mental freedom to experience the joy and pleasure of simply being alive."
Omar called it recently: "A pure example of tapping into love as the animating power of the universe." No gurus to follow, only a remarkable technique to embrace, utilize, and allow to transform all aspects of our lives.
We are offering this at a special "friendship rate" to people who have been an especially beloved part of our journey here in Lanka. We hope you will respond to the invitation in the spirit in which it has been extended, and we can together bring Lester's amazing legacy to vibrant life here and beyond, together!

I consider myself very fortunate to have attended the workshop by Mr Omar Khan two weeks ago. Even though so late in my life, it has already made my attitude & mind stress free, loving & releasing all negativity in everything & everybody. It has improved my relationship & sleep. Bless Ranjan for making this possible. If at least one percent of Sri Lankans practice this, this country will become heaven on earth.
- Dr.Sritharan - -Senior Orthopaedic Surgeon – The Lanka Hospital -
I've always loved,
But never did I know the impact;
Today I've learned to love,
And never knew it could have such a big impact.
Today I've let go and I've released,
Today I'm on a feather bed, weightless;
I am in love with myself, I'm in love with you,
And I'm in love with the whole universe too.
Your words used to hurt me,
They used to put me down,
But now you have no control over me,
Put your 21 guns down.
For I am living with no resistance,
Letting the universe take its course,
I'm surrendering to beingness,
Omar Khan and Lester Levenson, thanks for the wise words
