Avatar provides a safe environment for you to recognize and remove beliefs that are holding you back.
Avatar helps you to understand your self. Nobody tells you what to believe or what not to believe.
Every person who becomes an Avatar shifts the collective consciousness toward a greater tolerance and understanding. Helping yourself with Avatar helps everyone else at the same time.
The following article is an excerpt from Volume 17, Issue 1 of the Avatar Journal, prepared by Star's Edge International.
2003 Special Report on Avatar®
prepared by Stars Edge International
Someone once noted that the most rewarding
efforts are those that not only accomplish what you set out to do but
produce bonus results that are as good as or even better than the goal
you intended. This is voiced again and again by Avatar Course graduates.
It was even better than I expected. A lot better. It
far exceeded my expectations.
So what is Avatar?
It is a straightforward self-development
course that comes unencumbered by beliefs, sect memberships, or any
quasi-religious rites. For these reasons, it is the high point of the
human potential movement. Its graduates are quick to agree, It
is the most powerful, purest self-development program available at any
Where did it come from?
An educational psychologist named Harry
Palmer created Avatar in 1986. He wanted to present a training program
that people would find valuable. Our intention, he states
in his ReSurfacing textbook, is that the people we train and license
to deliver The Avatar Course charge money (not worship nor homage nor
admiration, but currency alone) for their valuable service, and that
they charge enough that Avatar continues to expand
Who takes The Avatar Course?
Students come from all walks of lifefrom monks to captains of financeand a wide range of belief systemsfrom fundamentalists to atheists. Most find that Avatar intensifies their understanding of life and increases their tolerance and compassion for others.
Who runs Avatar?
Stars Edge International, the company
Palmer founded in 1986, has certainly achieved his goal of presenting
a training program that people find valuable. A prominent liberal arts
professor who has reviewed the course materials describes them as an
elegant blend of oriental philosophy and western cognitive psychology.
There is little doubt in anyones mind that Avatar unveils deep-subconscious
conditioning and restores self-control.
What does Avatar do for people?
The Avatar Course produces profound increases
in self-awareness. This allows graduates to make changes in their values
and goals. These changes are self-determined and are not the result
of influences or persuasions by the teacher. Avatar Masters are discouraged
from passing their own beliefs to students.
What is personal responsibility?
Personal responsibility is the ability
to determine ones own decisions, choices, and actions. In Avatar,
this is called being source. A natural outcome of increasing this ability
is that people discover areas in their lives that they havent
Does everyone like Avatar?
No. Unfortunately, not everyone feels the
way Stars Edge does about personal responsibility. It is a complex
issue that has motivated an occasional press attack on Avatar. Some
individuals, organizations, and even countries, develop extreme psychological
domination over peoples lives. Psychologists call this dominance/submission
a form of co-dependency. When the victim of such a relationship increases
personal responsibility, the dominating partneror organization,
or countryis threatened, i.e., personal growth on the part of
the victim threatens the status quo. From the dominators point
of view, Avatar is a threatsomething to be decried as dangerous
and to be avoided. Such people have even made the accusation that Avatar
is a brainwashing cult. Ironically, those making the accusation are
usually guilty of the offense themselves.
How does Avatar view the media?
In a briefing Harry Palmer instructed Masters:
Its no surprise that the best journalists count integrity
and the ability to present the story honestly as their highest skills.
They know that if they report a false story or allow themselves to be
manipulated by someone bearing a grudge, their credibility among peers
and editors may be gone forever. Skilled reporters hate to write retractions;
retractions are career killers. So dont ever put a reporter in
a position where they might have to. Tell them the truth; trust them
until they give you a good reason not to.
The Mission of Avatar
Avatar is spearheading the most important
campaign of humanity: to create an enlightened planetary civilization.
