Here’s an announcement from Aaron S. Elias:
I have been meditating for over 20 years and benefited greatly from it. Yet, not unlike it was with picking up women, I walked my own path. In the pickup industry, you have virgin gurus who tell you nonsense like “looks don’t matter”, and they want to make you believe that “game” is all you need in order to get girls. Compared to the New Age industry, though, the pickup industry is nothing. You won’t believe the bullshit New Age gurus spout.
Just like my experience with the pickup industry about ten years later, my encounter with the New Age industry left me with a very bad taste in my mouth. I met gurus who could not sit in the lotus position, yet attempted to create a cult of personality around them. I met a lot of shady gurus who seemed to use meditation as a means for meeting naive women to hook up with, and I also encountered bullshit, lots and lots of bullshit. People spoke about the “third eye”, “chakras”, “pillars of energy”, and whatnot, as if those were not fantasies but reality.
I consequently developed my own approach to meditation, stripping it bare of New Age nonsense and dropping superfluous rituals. Not only did I practice in that style myself, I also had extensive opportunity to teach it in real life. This includes meditation seminars I have given in the context of teaching men how to really get girls. For a few years, I had a side gig as a yoga teacher, which was another opportunity to introduce people to my version of meditation without bullshit.
Soon, you will have the opportunity to learn about how and why I meditate, and why I meditate the way I do. My upcoming book “Meditation without Bullshit” will provide a concise and practical introduction to meditation, with a focus on real-world applicability. It contains relevant background, instruction, and a realistic progress plan.
The book is currently in the final editing stage, and on track to be released in late 2017 or early 2018. Further updates will follow.
