At this point, this program is available upon request. If you have 4–12 people interested in the course, please let us know. We would be happy to offer it to you at a time and place that works for everyone. It can be life-transforming, as you will read in the testimonials below.
Living With Mastery is more than a training program.
Here’s what one recent participant wrote:
“It has completely transformed my life, with the most significant part being the peace that I continually feel.”
In all Educare programs we use an “unlearning process” to help you become aware of that which is interfering with your ability to live from the innate freedom of Oneness and wholeness. Unlearning helps you let go of beliefs, concepts, opinions and stories that create limiting self-images, views of others, and worldviews. As you unlearn, or break the habit of whatever reinforces your belief in separation, Truth naturally shines forth in radiant brightness and clarity.
The following quote from Eckhart Tolle in his book “Stillness Speaks” describes the approach we teach in Living With Mastery:
“Artistic creation, sports, dance, teaching, counseling — mastery
in any field of endeavor implies that the thinking mind is either
no longer involved at all or at least is taking second place. A power
and intelligence greater than you and yet one with you in essence
takes over. There is no decision-making process anymore;
spontaneous right action happens, and “you” are not doing it.
“Mastery of life is the opposite of control. You become aligned
with the greater consciousness. It acts, speaks, does the works.”
Living With Mastery is an invitation to further awaken to your God-given potential and lead a more deeply authentic life. Are you making tangible and meaningful progress in the most important areas and relationships in your life? The course provides an invitation to discover and articulate your purpose in life, and experience new levels of stillness, peace and deep joy!
Living with Mastery also takes a deep look into interpersonal transformation. You’ll explore and practice a listening/communication model that allows you and others to deeply inquire and tap into new clarity.
How the Course is Structured
This course is highly interactive and practical. No one is forced to share or reveal anything. We offer a safe, authentic space where you may feel, accept and receive new glimpses of Truth, and learn to listen in a way that evokes inner possibilities to bloom. Each individual’s style of learning is honored and respected.
Methodologies include: writing, dialogue, inquiry, simulations, exercises, skill practices, short lectures and videos. We will be listening to music, poetry and short prose from many sources. There is ample quiet time for reflection, asking questions and exploring answers.
While this course was originally designed two decades ago to help business leaders create cultures in which people would love to work and serve, it has been adapted for a public audience for those who are on a conscious spiritual path of practical transformation. Sandy is happy to answer any questions about the course content to help you decide if you would benefit from it.
The course has six days in the classroom over a seven day period. There are a few very meaningful “assignments” to do on your own to help you further your learning and development in between the classroom days. Class times are 8:30—6:30 each day.
Sandy will also be available to meet one-on-one with you outside of class. Many have found these optional meetings valuable in facilitating their exploration of course concepts.

Participant comments on course content and methodology
Living With Mastery achieves perhaps the most effective balance between information and transformation that is available in the field of consciousness and spiritual experiential learning. Beyond that, the focus on ‘unlearning’ whatever is blocking your full and authentic expression makes the class truly unique.
The program is post-metaphysical in the best sense of the word. It presents the minimum – but exactly needed – amount of information and consciousness transformation models and maps to create an understanding of the process of awakening to the authentic Self. At the same time infusing each day with the most heart-touching, mind-blowing poetry, music, video and authentically enlightened teaching that creates a real experiential shift from ego to heart to Spirit.
The class is designed to create such a constant feeling of Presence, Grace and Love that the cool – but necessary – information recedes into the background. The feeling of Grace and Presence created is so strong that the ego has little chance to show up without being immediately seen for what it is – just a bunch of stuff pretending to be who you are. The ego is so exposed that during the class it cannot coalesce around the material and so create a new but ‘higher’ sort of ego-knowing.
There is nothing left to do but to listen to the Inner Teacher and to Be the Presence and Grace that is revealed from the heart – not the mind. This new space of expanded heart knowing is given ample opportunity to develop during times of meditative inquiry and written dictation while in the mode of listening to the guidance of Grace, rather than thinking about it.

“To state it simply, the Living With Mastery workshop is life changing. “I had no idea what to expect when I went to the first session and I was immediately filled with the sense that right there was exactly where I was supposed to be. The material used
in the workshop is so well organized that each exercise, tool, or life-lesson leads to the next one. The course is like building a pyramid. Each block of information is a foundation for the next block. By the time the course is completed, you leave feeling like you are standing on top of the pyramid with very specific tools to help you apply what you have learned. “The source material is vast – everything from videos of people who have met and surmounted enormous challenges to poetry and prose passages from a variety of books.
The passages quoted are so profound that you want to read the entire book. “The optional one-on-one session with Sandy was enlightening in a way that is difficult to describe. Let’s just say that at the end of the hour I saw myself in a new way and that new way has stayed with me.
“This workshop is for everyone. If you are interested in reaching your potential as an artist, an athlete, a parent, a coach, a student, a business person then this workshop is for you. Not only does it show you how to develop and live your purpose but it also teaches you how to galvanize others to reach their potential. After completing the workshop, I can’t go back to my old patterns. The old patterns are no longer an option.”
Shane Ann Younts, New York City, New York
“Living With Mastery has graced my life with powerful and practical gifts that have supported me in unfolding my purpose in the world. My study of and continued involvement with LWM has yielded a clearer sense of direction and a greater understanding and articulation of my true work in the world. “I have taken and facilitated many workshops and seminars around the world, and LWM has certainly contributed unique tools to my repertoire. As an “Integral Life Coach,” these tools have proved invaluable to my work with others. The work in deep listening has been especially helpful in developing sound communication skills. Many of my clients have commented on how healing it is to “truly be heard.” I credit this skill much to the integrity
of the instruction in this course. “It has been 5 years since I took the original course. I have since returned for 3 “Refresher Courses” and look forward to more! The inspiration that has come from my time with Sandy Wilder and his wonderful “assistant coaches” has carried me through many hard times, turning challenges into rich opportunities for growth. I highly recommend this course to others seeking to live more in line with what they cherish most.”
Heather Barron, Buena Vista, CO
“To be candid—I really didn’t know much about Living with Mastery before taking it, and really only attended based on the encouragement of a friend. I love books and courses that feed my spiritual self, and I figured I would get some new ideas from LWM, but I had no idea how transforming the experience would be. Living with Mastery cut right to the core – and I will never be the same! “I have always known myself to be a good person living a good life – but I never had a clear sense of purpose. LWM took my life off of cruise control – and now I wake up each day “on fire” and focused – clear about what I am about and the difference I can make. “I could not give LWM a high enough recommendation. I now know who I am!”

“When I heard about Living With Mastery, I had a strong feeling that I needed to enroll. But, I never expected it would so radically impact the way I think and act. Beyond the practical leadership skills that Sandy taught – how to live in mastery, how to listen, how to lead, how to rise above destructive thought patterns etc. – I experienced a gradual mental cleansing as I began to shed layer after layer of self-imposed fears and limiting beliefs about myself. Underneath the layers, I discovered who I really am and what my potential is. I came away with a clear sense of purpose and with the confidence and the tools to live that purpose. “As I flew home after the workshop I was so overwhelmed with joy, I couldn’t stop smiling – my broken wings had been repaired. All I could think about was how I could share what I learned with the people I care about. If you are ready for real progress, I strongly encourage you to enroll in this inspiring workshop.”
Aileen Cheatham: Rancho Santa Fe, CA
“Living With Mastery is the best thing I have done for myself…probably ever. The class offers concrete steps to leadership that are practical and ongoing. As we finished the class I knew I had learned so very much, but I was concerned that it would fade away as time passed, as these things sometimes do. However, Living With Mastery continues to grow and unfold as the days and weeks and months go by. I find myself eager for each day and for the new ideas that come with it. These ideas show up in the ways that I work with other people, and grow as a person. It has been a remarkable journey, and it continues to get better and better!”

Participant comment on the facilitator
Sandy Wilder is an authentic, humble and effective spiritual teacher and consciousness transformation trainer. He has synthesized the best of ancient and modern sources for both meaningful content and effective practices.
Sandy embodies and models the transformation and awakening he teaches. His listening skill, empathy and present moment awareness is unmatched by any teacher or trainer I’ve worked with – and there have been many over the last 40 years.
He teaches mostly by his natural way of fully inhabiting each moment of the class and listening with his heart in such a way that he pulls you out of your ego and into that sacred space of listening to Grace with him.
While you may forget some of what Sandy says, you will never forget how he made you feel – and this feeling – that your heart has become a portal for pure Grace to flow into the world – alone will transform your life.
