It's time to be direct with yourself...,
- Are you feeling lazy?
- Are you fearful?
- Are you angry?
- Do you feel you lack knowledge?
- Do you feel that you lack experience in life?
- Are you stuck in the past?
- Are you anxious about the future?
Step away from your ego and begin to observe how you "work". By acting as the observer, and bringing your subconscious activities out into the light, "negative" behaviors and thought patterns begin to lose their power over you.
Life is like a fast-moving train. If you've spent time in Japan, you'll probably be familiar with the Shinkansen - also known as Japan's Bullet Train. There's a very good reason why it's called the bullet train - it's fast! You can sit on a bench at the station and watch it blast by you in a blur of white and blue. You can also choose to board the Shinkansen and ride along in peace and comfort at close to 200mph!
Life is like that too. If you're focused primarily on your past and/or future, it's a lot like sitting on the bench at the station. You will never be quite in the moment - instead you'll be focused on your interpretation of where you've been and where you predict you'll be going. "Boarding the train" allows you to ride along in the moment and move toward a destination effortlessly. So, while the "bench-sitter" and the "passenger" both live in the same world - and are expelling the same amount of physical energy - they each experience life in a profoundly different way. For the passenger, it is a subtle, but very dramatic shift in consciousness.
Are You Ready?
My task is to be your guide through this process. While these popular concepts can be easy to talk about intellectually, actually integrating them with your own life can be a challenge. Most of us have been programmed since childhood to look at the world in a particular way. So much so, that we tend to consider our true "selves" and our "programming" as one inseparable entity.
Through our work together, I will help you to discover the world of the "now". You will realize, through real practice, the dramatic benefits of stepping out of the continuous "replay" of your past and letting go of your "anxiety" over an imagined future.
The time is now...
The right time to start such an important personal journey is always now. There's an old saying - "The best time to plant a tree was 35 years ago..., The second best time is today." None of us has the luxury of stepping back in time to change our past. However, we can change how we perceive and accept past events - viewing them all ("good" or "bad") as seeds for greater personal growth.
There's a degree of "lunacy" in beating yourself up over the past - just as there is in always living in the future.
This idea of choosing to live your life sometime in the "future" is like always sitting along the tracks - watching that Bullet Train fly by you. If only you had chosen to board it, you'd have made the choice to participate in your own existence and move toward your destination of self-realization. Stop "getting ready" to do something - stop "preparing" to start - stop the endless planning, and simply begin.
There's another old saying - a Buddhist proverb you've probably heard before - "When the student is ready, the teacher will appear". If you have found your way to this site and read this far, then I encourage you to learn more - and take part in one of our online training programs.

C.MI.™ Graduate Testimonials
I am so thankful for Stephen Rinaldi and the C.MI. program at the U.H.T. I graduated the C.MI. program a few years ago and not only did it help improve my own meditation practice, it also helped me to become a good Meditation Instructor. I started teaching Mindfulness (Vipasanna) meditation to students shortly after graduating. It’s a great addition to the other styles of meditation I have been using for 9 years. I am also a wellness coach and stress management expert and recommend Mindfulness meditation and the C.MI. program to all my clients. If you sign up for this program, you will love it.
Kimberly Palm, C.MI.

"Before starting this course, I only expected to learn how to become a meditation instructor. But it turned out to be a great experience and a journey which I discovered so many issues about myself, some hidden subconcious misbeliefs that prevent me from going further in many areas of my life. I learned how to use meditation as a tool to transform inside. Before starting to teach meditation, I saw what I have to learn about myself first. I thank Stephen Rinaldi for lighting the way, for being a great mentor, and a wonderful teacher."
Ms. Selvin Canbeyli Arihan, C.MI.
"I completed the C.MI course in January 2010. Building upon the foundations in meditation that I learned from the C.MI course I then set up my own courses for an introductory mediation class and a deeper 3 week class in meditation that prepares a student for a full meditation practice. With the knowledge and understanding gained from the C.MI course I have now taught several meditation classes out of my home and I have had great feedback from my students on the content and methods shared with them. My meditation classes allow me to share my passion for meditation and this is a wide open market for those wishing to do the same. If you have ever wanted to teach or even just learn meditation without the associated religious beliefs or yoga poses required by other avenues that teach meditation then I would highly recommend the C.MI course to you!"
Jim Smith, Emerging Path, LLC
"The carefully selected reading material probes the mind in all the right ways! Besides abling the student to become comfortable with beginner and intermediate instruction, it also provides the opportunity for deep reflection on the kind of teacher you would be! Our experiences in life, that create the people we are, differ so greatly that we must be able to look at ourselves with an honest eye to realize the unique ways in which we can connect with our students.
I Thank Stephen Rinaldi and all the staff deeply for hastily responding to every question and providing an environment that one can feel comfortable in! If I continue in the Metaphysical field, it is no question that this is where i will be!"
Tyler Belsito, C.MI - British Columbia, Canada
"I have taught meditation for more than 30 years and found the information and course material to be exceptional for those beginning thier path to becoming a meditation instructor. The public nowadays seem to require a "certification" to qualify anything you do, and the C.MI course and resulting certificate have most certainly fit that requirement. My student base has increased because of the C.MI certification...thank you Stephen!"

At the begining of the course i had a "knowing of" [LA princples] ,and three weeks later I can honestly say that i have a complete "awareness" of how valuable this law is to my daily living practices. Forget the "Secret", Stephen will give you the "truth" behind this amazing state of mind!
Further I was initially anxious about online learning being in Australia, however within a few days it was like being in a classroom forum,and you could really feel the presence of Stephen Rinaldi as a guide and support throughout the entire process.
The value completely exceeds the cost, dont hesitate to enrol - in fact i urge it!
~ Martin Atherton, C.LAC. / Australia ~
Where do I begin?! Attending the C.LAC course has been an awesome experience!
I had the honour of meeting wonderful people from all over the world, all the way from Australia, Spain and the U.S., that were on a similar wave length and had the opportunity to learn a lot from each other. The course was very intense and works on all levels, including amongst others, your intellectual and psychological level. The online course is user friendly and Stephen Rinaldi makes it attention grabbing and interesting with the various video clips that are added to complement the content of the course. The self-discovery, principles and applications obtained from the C.LAC course are priceless! Thank you everyone:-)
~ Neovi Lenou, C.LAC. / Cyprus ~
I loved my time with C.LAC, and am thrilled to have made many new like-minded friends here. I am actually sorry it went by so fast.
...Stephen Rinaldi has a way of engaging the student in all of us and opened up exciting avenues to explore within. Taking you deeper than the surface of what you think about you.
As a class and for the individual, we were all encouraged to continually dig deeper to the core of our belief systems and move beyond what we are accepting as our reality. Whether you found this course by accident, or by recommendation you will benefit by the teaching of Stephen Rinaldi and the sharing of your classmates.
This course is for anyone looking to become self empowered, sharing what you implement is icing on the cake.
To you, the future student, I know you will enjoy your time here as much as I did and you will take away tools for creating a better life for you, those you love, and those you desire to assist. Priceless!
Karen Sullivan, C.LAC. / Illinois, USA ~
"I only have words of gratitude to Stephen Rinaldi and the work he carries out in this course.
I have changed my percepcion in many areas in which I was blocked and did not know how to overcome. Now I see things in such a different way. I am greatly looking forward (and feel ready) to begin counseling others as well.
Thanks so much for this amazing course! "
~ Rocío Segundo, C.LAC. / Madrid, Spain ~
As a Certified Hypnotherapist and having worked with [LA princples] for many years, I initially signed up for the CLAC course with the feeling that the certification would add additional value for my clients, and it has… However, where the course surprised me is in the value it has brought to my own personal LA practice. With the teachings from this course, I've reached a depth in working with [LA Concepts] that I have never reached before… manifesting indeed!
Thank you Dr Rinaldi for providing such a fabulous course!
~ Krystal Rushing, C.Ht, C.LAC / California, USA ~
"I have been counselling for some time now and have used my own findings from many books and programs. This put everthing into a very simplistic approach to forward on to my clients. It has also helped me enormously in re-finding my own direction as it is so easy to get lost.... I would recommend this course to anyone whether it be for personal or business purposes.
~ Olga Perkins, C.LAC. - Australia ~
"I have been reading and listening to various materials on [these concepts] for some time - and THIS is where I finally found the real meaning of L.A. and the real essence of its practice and manifestations." ~ Erwin Cuizon, C.LAC. / UAE - Philippines ~
Since taking this course i am amazed at the level of awareness that I have gained. My actions are much more reflective of the kind of life I am choosing to live, and I am confident that I can use my skills in helping others in my future. I would've taken this course even if I wasn't training to be a Coach because the personal growth is priceless.
Debi Jackson, C.LAC / Michigan - USA
"Can you imagine taking a course expecting to become educated about [LA princples] and finding that you have become more educated about yourself in the process? This is but one of the opportunities the C.LAC online course offers. Stephen Rinaldi has created a course with exceptional experiential value that is additionally enhanced by his caring commitment to his students. The online campus is eye pleasing, easy to navigate and encourages participation through use of forums. Assignments are clearly defined and if questions arise they are answered in a most timely fashion. I would highly recommend the C.LAC course to anyone who is seriously interested in learning the principles of "LA"...with the added benefit of coming to know yourself more intimately. Thank You, Stephen, and staff for a wonderful learning experience."
Sharon L. Caldararo, C.LAC. / Counselor / USA ~
I found the course to be engaging and informative. But, what was most valuable to me was the experience. What I mean by that was the interaction with fellow students, the guidance and feedback from the instructor, and the growth of not only myself, but fellow students during this short course. It was exciting and fullfiling! I'm sixty years old (young), and I've participated in and conducted numerous courses in my lifetime. This ranks up there with the very best! The most important thing I take from this course is "Live a life of demonstration, change you and inspire others."
~ J. Stanford Jr, C.LAC. ~ Texas - USA ~
"This course is terrific for those individuals that have a working knowledege of [Life Action] and wish to deepen their learning.
~ Deneen Blocker, C.LAC. ~ North Carolina - USA ~
"After taking this course and giving myself some time to digest everything I learned, its obvious to me that after years of partially understanding [these concepts] that I really get it now. There are profound and deep changes happening in me as a result of what I've learned. The way I respond to life will never be the same, nor what I will be responding to! Stephen Rinaldi has been a great and caring teacher who is always willing to give very detailed responses to his students questions to make sure that they really understand the material. There may be much longer courses out there, but this intensive course is power-packed with everything you need to fully understand the use of [ LA Concepts] and to share it with others."
~ Aaron Elliott, C.LAC. ~ Indiana, USA ~
"I would recommend the C.LAC. Program to everyone who wants to understand more how to counsel people with the LA approach. I really enjoyed the online campus, it was a fun experience and the materials really made me think beyond my current understanding."
~ Olivia Reyes, C.LAC. / Author / Mexico ~
"What I loved most about the course was it really forced me to individualize my clients. The course was filled with opportunities of growth for me as a practitioner. Sometimes we get so caught up in the work that we forget to change the recipe as needed! Thanks for the enlightenment!" ~ Veronica Drake, C.LAC. / Holistic Life Coach / USA ~
The course actually exceeded my expectations!
(Highly recommended)... for anyone who wants to create their destiny. Come and join the C.LAC program and enjoy your time with people who know the secret and use it in their life...." ~ Arash Yekta, C.LAC. / Iran ~
"The course was very well written and challenged me as a student to think differently. A slow and deliberate start to the course, enabled me to grasp the fundamentals of LA, the forums are a great place to share ideas and gain knowledge from other students. The assignments are designed to draw out your understanding of LA and encouraged me to use my intuition and to think more conceptual. The case studies were extremely well designed and forced me to consider the challenges of counceling different types of individual, I felt a true sense of achievement after completing each assignment and found them to be a practical guide to different counselling needs. The material provided, cleverly pushes you to shift your awareness and deepen your understanding of the subject in hand. The videos were thought provoking, educational and enlightening, my awareness and perception and changed during my involvement in this course. I have made a number of major changes in my daily life, I feel sure as a direct result of this course. It would be difficult to attend this course and not experience some form shift in awareness and to see a positive change take place in your daily life. " ~ Douglas Ponsford / UK ~
"This course went much deeper in understanding than I would have thought. Very helpful in developing my counseling style." ~ Malcon Taylor, C.LAC - Tennessee, USA ~
"The C.LAC program is an excellent study on the [practice of LA] and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The format of this program is very engaging. Between the daily tasks and the weekly assignments, I was really forced to think and ponder on the principles of [Life Action] and how these principles come to play in our lives. The course forum allowed for daily interactions between students and instructor. As well, the daily topics of interest made for some really interesting discussions. A well-structured program designed for those who seek to understand and apply these life changing principles in their own lives, and those who also aspire to help others."
~ Dwayne H. Houle C.LAC - Ontario, Canada ~
I thought I fully understood the workings of the [practice of LA]. But then I took the [Life Action Coaching] course and it opened up a new world of how to view and consciously work with the [practice of LA]. In the short time period of the course, I began to manifest positive events in my life to show me that the concepts taught really work. Thank you for creating and offering such an amazing course. If everyone took the course, we would live in a much better world.
