Surrender – huh?
Some of you may find yourself reading this blog because you may be asking yourself the following important questions:
What does it mean to surrender?
How do you really surrender? or
What does it mean if you are living from a place of surrender?
This article is essentially a review of the Michael Singer 8 Week Course, Living from a Place of Surrender. But before I get into that, I want to provide a little personal background which has prompted me to review this course. If that’s not for you, skip down to the review below.
Falling off the Rat Wheel of Life
We all go through difficult times and I am no exception. The catalyst for change for me though was when I found myself saying “I can’t do this anymore”.
What exactly did I mean by that? I meant, I couldn’t continue to chase and push and achieve/acquire, feel good fleetingly and then find myself still wanting more, dissatisfied and basically unhappy and repeating the same process over and over and ultimately feeling the same way.
No thing or person, nor myself was ever going to be good enough according to my mind. But I didn’t know that at the time. All I knew that time round was that I was physically and emotionally tired after years and years on the wheel and I felt empty. And, I had to get off – actually I just fell off.
This took me down the path of exploring concepts such as presence, awareness, enlightenment, surrender and acceptance (I gave up the fight) and I began to be conscious.
This changed my concept of who I am and subsequently my life.
And so, it is from this space that I wish to share my thoughts regarding the Living from a Place of Surrender online course in the hope that you to will learn and experience the transformative power that surrender can have within you, on your life and your experience of life.

About the Teacher
Michael A. Singer has been a spiritual teacher for more than four decades and has written two books: the #1 New York Times bestseller The Untethered Soul and the New York Times bestseller The Surrender Experiment. In 1971, Michael experienced a deep inner awakening and went into seclusion, focusing on yoga and meditation. In 1975, he founded the yoga and meditation center known as Temple of the Universe, where people have come together to practice and study ever since.
Aim of the course
The course description opens with the assertion that you will learn that trying to achieve happiness by “getting what you want” is actually limiting your happiness and that you end up struggling with life instead of experiencing it.
The overview also states that the most effective personal growth technique is to use life to remove your inner blockages, not compensate for them.
You will also learn about your true relationship to the world unfolding around you and to the thoughts and emotions arising within you. But most importantly, you will come into touch with the real “you”—the indwelling consciousness that is witnessing it all.
My thoughts: I can certainly relate to the statement that trying to achieve happiness by getting what you want doesn’t contribute to happiness and that one’s life can still feel like a struggle even when or after you get it. And yes, not trying to compensate or I like to say ‘fix’ your inner blockages comes from a place of ease (flow) which I’m all about. Getting in touch with the ‘real you’ is where it is at! So, this is a reassuring starting point.
The paradox is, is that once you begin to surrender you actually get more of what you want and realise though that your happiness in not dependent on it.
- Freedom from struggle
- Clarity and Calm
- Spontaneous Joy
- Harmony in Relationships
- Energetic Renewal
- Creative Inspiration
My thoughts: Yes, I can say that I have experienced all of these as a consequence of getting in touch with my being (the real you) and a growing awareness of my thoughts and emotions.
The Living from a Place of Surrender is endorsed by the likes of Tony Robbins, Jack Canfield and Deepak Chopra.
Final thoughts – Liberation & Contentment
The course has been developed and is delivered by a reputable and credible teacher. The endorsements of other leading teachers whether in similar or different fields supports this statement.
The course approach is valid and hits on crucial points for consciousness and transforming one’s life e.g. having an awareness of one’s emotions and thoughts, surrender, being in flow, freedom from pushing to achieve, and in going beyond the overactive mind (that creates suffering and struggle) to access the real you where liberation and sustainable contentment lies.
One final positive is that for every course that is sold they will give one course to a person in an under served community. I like that!
The course cost is a small price to pay for what can be a profound and sustained change.
