Before you take on the world, you need to master your own mind.

It's not what you think, it's how you think.

How do you discover more about life and the world you live in?

Can you improve your life?

What is Avatar®?

Avatar® is the most powerful, purest self-development program available.

It is a series of experiential exercises that enable you to rediscover your self and align your consciousness with what you want to achieve. You will experience your own unique insights and revelations. No one will tell you what to believe or who you are. It's you finding out about you.

  • Would you like to be free of old restraints that make you unhappy?
  • Would you like to align your beliefs with the goals you want to accomplish?
  • Would you like to feel more secure about your ability to conduct your own life?
  • Would you like to experience a higher, wiser, more peaceful expression of self?
  • Would you like to be able to rise above the sorrows and struggles of the world and see them for what they really are?
  • Would you like to experience the state of consciousness traditionally described as enlightenment?
  • Avatar is for you.

Create your reality

How does Avatar work?

Avatar equips you with the tools to deliberately restructure the beliefs that form the pattern of your life.
Your own beliefs are actually the most powerful forces that influence your existence. They determine what you perceive and how you perceive it. They influence your thoughts, your expectations, and your actions. They shape your personality. They even affect the outcome of your actions and the way others perceive you and respond to you.
Avatar helps you explore behind the scenes of your existence and discover the uninspected, unconsciously- held beliefs that are causing your life to be as it is.

What makes Avatar different?

Rather than presenting you with another set of beliefs to live by, Avatar awakens you to a natural ability to create and discreate beliefs. With this skill, you can restructure your life according to a blueprint that you determine.

Why do I need Avatar?

Without Avatar training, people's lives are steered by the urging of their deepest, most resisted, transparent beliefs. Imagine that the people who you fear, like least, and are overwhelmed by, are automatically conditioning 90% or more of your decisions. That's life without Avatar.

What can I expect from the Avatar course?

The goal of the three-section course is to guide you in an exploration of your own belief system and to equip you with the tools to modify those things that you wish to change. The Avatar Course opens a window to the inner workings of your own consciousness.
The course teaches world lessons (experiential) rather than word lessons (intellectual). For this reason it requires a trained Avatar Master to guide you into the actual lessons already contained in your own consciousness.

The Avatar® Course


Section I: The Resurfacing® Workshop

Aspects of consciousness addressed:
Beliefs, Reality, Consciousness

Section I of The Avatar Course sets forth certain ideas about the relationship between beliefs and reality. These ideas are subjected to various tests and examinations (in group discussions and in private explorations) to allow you to determine for yourself if such relationships do, in fact, exist.
Section I exercises take you behind the scenes of consciousness for a look at the blueprints by which you build your life. The journey results in an intimate connection with a deeper, more compassionate and aware state of self.
Section I is offered in an affordable 2-day workshop that contains information, demonstrations, and experiential exercises to awaken you to the unlimited possibilities of living deliberately.


Section II: The Exercises

Aspects of consciousness addressed:
Creation, Perception, Experience

Section II of The Avatar Course develops your ability to create a reality that you prefer. Deeper access to your own mental programming results in transformational realizations about why certain aspects of your life have fallen short and what you can do to correct them. You turn the part of self that was your worst enemy into a guiding friend.
Self-sabotaging beliefs are exposed before they can do you more harm. Stress is replaced by a relaxed awareness.
You learn how to experience reality without judgment, separation, or distortion.
Section II requires approximately 4 to 5 days to complete.


Section III: The Rundowns

Aspects of consciousness addressed:
Identity, Beingness, Awareness

Section III of The Avatar Course develops your ability to discreate realities that act as hidden reefs and barriers to your operation as source. An Avatar Master takes you on a guided initiation that introduces you to, and allows you to discreate, some of the most fundamental (and previously transparent) belief structures of the universe.
Next, you complete solo rundowns that permit you to address body sensations, interpersonal conflicts, dependencies, limitations, persistent conditions, compulsions and (without words or argument) the beliefs of others.
When you are able to manage any troubling aspect of your existence from a creator viewpoint, you have achieved the state of being called Avatar.
Section III requires approximately 2 to 4 days to complete.

The Founder, Harry Palmer

Allow yourself the gift of universal perspective. Wisdom will appear and your actions will be motivated by an intuitive, spontaneous, benevolent intent. There is no regret. Do useful things. Help others for the delight of helping others. Concentrate on adding value to the world rather than consuming the world. Harry Palmer, author of the Avatar materials

In 1986, a teacher named Harry Palmer created The Avatar®Course. That same year he founded Star's Edge International®, the seminar management corporation that supervises the delivery of the Avatar Materials. Harry's writings are a profound contribution to the growing body of knowledge, exercises, and processes directed to self-improvement. Many individuals and companies in the personal-development industry have adopted his ideas.

Harry Palmer dresses simply, lives simply, and remembers to open the door for the ladies. He looks at you steadily when you talk, and you get the feeling that he is interested in what you have to say; he is. In sharp contrast, he is also the CEO of a rapidly growing international corporation and the unexpected inheritor of a prestige that once belonged only to prominent spiritual leaders. This simple man's writings are creating a movement that is sweeping the planet.

His bestselling book, Living Deliberately* (currently available in 20 languages) describes his personal path to enlightenment, and the subsequent insights that were to become the foundation of the three-section, nine-day Avatar Course. (A prominent liberal arts professor described the Avatar Course as: "… an elegant blend of oriental philosophy and western cognitive psychology that provides a fast, experiential route to restoring self-determinism.")

Harry's lofty aim is to contribute to the creation of an enlightened planetary civilization®. This goal has been embraced by thousands of Avatar graduates from 71 countries.

Pam Priest Owner: Complete Wellness Arts & Science Center

"When I realized the tremendous impact the course had on me, I also realized the effect a calm, clear mind has on a person's state of health, I decided that Avatar was a perfect fit for our center. As a matrimonial attorney for over 20 years, I began feeling unsatisfied in the profession. I felt I was not helping people, but facilitating acrimony, which is the nature of an adversarial system.

Because I had always loved the visual arts, I went back to school to learn therapeutic art instruction. My new purpose was to help people heal and get healthy through art expression. Along the way, I discovered new ways to help people enjoy better health, and I decided to open the Complete Wellness Arts & Science Center, incorporating a large variety of healing disciplines and education in practices to enhance health.

I was introduced to Avatar in 2011, by Dr. Margaret Mitchell, and now am delivering the course on a regular basis. When I realized the tremendous impact the course had on me, I also realized the effect a calm, clear mind has on a person's state of health, I decided that Avatar was a perfect fit for our center. We will be offering Introductions to Avatar on a regular basis. On top of having a great addition to our center, the greatest gift Avatar has given me is personal, in my family life. Both my children and my husband have become Avatars, and we are enjoying an amazing connection and understanding for one another.

Lisa Nasca Owner: Acumayo Therapy Acupuncture Clinic - Avatar Master

"Whether you've done this type of work or not, it is worth doing if you want to change your life. . . Harry's program is world class, you've got to give it a try. You can't understand the benefits until you put in the effort. Experience it for yourself! The return is beyond limits."

Laura Villalobos Marketing, Administration and Hyperbaric Chamber Operator

"My path lead me to Avatar at the most opportune time—when I was desperate for a change in both my inner world and my place in the world at large. I went into the course with overflowing emotion and as the days progressed I came to realization after realization about my beliefs and patterns. Baggage I'd carried for far too long was dropped. Identities I'd desperately clung to were no longer needed. I found an awareness, a lightness, an expansiveness that felt wonderful. While many of the ideas in the course have been around a long time, there is so much to be said for the opportunity to experience them firsthand. I had an intellectual understanding of many of the concepts, but when surrounded by a loving, supportive group of Avatar masters and students I released inhibitions let myself feel and explore. These experiences are so much more powerful than simply reading and imagining. The tools you will learn in the Avatar Course are powerful and will serve you for lifetime . . . perhaps longer, who knows."
