Quantum Jumping Quest

“Quantum jumping” isn’t one of the many meditation terms per se. However, it does require you to use relaxation techniques to project your consciousness across the multiverse to meet and learn from alternate versions of yourself. Additionally, it can be a form of inner exploration, which is an essential part of meditation.

This particular program, based on Burt Goldman’s pioneering work, teaches you how to unlock new skills, gain unique insights, and fundamentally change your approach to personal growth and achievement.

As Burt says, “Quantum jumping is the gateway to the ultimate you.”

Look at it this way: Imagine being a version of yourself with the skills and experiences you desire. For instance, you effortlessly land your dream job, play the guitar like a pro, speak fluent French, or inspire others with your confidence.

That’s how quantum jumping, through an advanced visualization method, can help you.

About the trainer: The late Burt Goldman was a revered figure in spiritual teaching and mind science. Over the decades, he developed quantum jumping, drawing from his deep knowledge of meditation, hypnosis, and visualization to help people access their untapped potential.

Class duration: 27 hours (sign up for a free Mindvalley account and get a sneak peek of the first few lessons)

What you’ll learn:

  • Acquire and enhance skills from your alternate selves, be it in art, business, or personal wellness.
  • Innovative solutions to life’s challenges by consulting versions of yourself who have already conquered similar obstacles.
  • A wellspring of creativity by exploring the experiences of your alternate selves in various universes.
  • How to set and achieve ambitious personal and professional goals by harnessing the knowledge and confidence of your successful alternates.
  • Understand your desires and fears better by confronting and integrating the lessons learned from multiple versions of yourself.

What students are saying:I had so much doubt in me and my future until I practiced [the] quantum jumping technique. Now, I have answers to all the questions, there is no uncertainty in life. Everything is certain, and everything is possible.” — Rojina Ranjit, executive coach; Boston, United States


What are the benefits of meditation classes?

Meditation is a great way to center yourself and be present. There are many options—from guided with a teacher to virtual meditation classes—that you can choose from based on what you feel is best for you.

But what can you gain from it? Here’s a list of benefits from participating in regular meditation classes:

  • Reduces stress
  • Improves concentration
  • Enhances emotional health
  • Increase overall happiness

How much do meditation classes cost?

The cost of meditation classes, specifically in the U.S., can vary widely based on several factors. This includes the location, the expertise of the instructor, and the type of class offered. 

Here’s a general breakdown to give you an idea of what’s available out there:

  • Free options: There are plenty of apps and online platforms that offer free introductory classes or sessions. For example, some free meditation apps provide guided sessions that are accessible to anyone with a smartphone or internet connection.
  • Low-cost options: Community centers, libraries, and some yoga studios might offer meditation classes at a reduced cost or on a donation basis. Prices in these settings can range from $5 to $20 per session.
  • Standard classes: Many dedicated meditation studios and wellness centers offer drop-in rates or monthly memberships. The fees typically range from $10 to $25 per class, depending on the studio and location.
  • Premium options: If you’re opting for more high-end studios or classes taught by highly renowned instructors or specialized programs, you may be looking at paying fees that are significantly more. These can range from $50 per session up to several hundred dollars for intensive workshops or retreats.

Ultimately, whichever meditation classes you take are based on what you’re looking for and your budget.

What is the best type of meditation for me?

There’s no single “best” type of meditation; the ideal one really depends on your individual preferences and goals.

With that being said, there are some more popular ones you can consider: 

  • Mindfulness meditation focuses on bringing your awareness to the present moment without judgment.
  • Mantra meditation involves silently repeating a word or phrase to quiet the mind and achieve a state of focus.
  • Guided meditation uses an instructor’s voice to lead you through a visualization or focus exercise.

The best way to find the right meditation for you is to experiment with different techniques. Many virtual meditation classes or free meditation apps offer a variety of styles to help you discover your perfect fit.

Unlock your brilliance within

Whether you’re seeking relaxation, improved focus, or a deeper spiritual connection, there’s one practice that would be a great place to start. It’s called the 6 Phase Meditation Quest.

[The 6 Phase Meditation] is for those of you who lead busy lives, those of you who may believe you have ADD, those of you who are entrepreneurs, those whose minds are always racing, those of you who are professional sports people, those of you who are creators whose minds are always creating,” says Vishen.
