LIVING IN ALIGNMENT WITH THE BETTER YOU
The Journey of the Sacred Paradox
Author, Counselor, and Teacher, Tom Monte
A stronger, wiser, and more loving-you is coming into being.
A more evolved, enlightened-you is ready to love your partner, wife or husband, children, and friends.
A more powerful, smarter-you is ready to show up in your work, business, and financial life.
A more compassionate, peaceful, understanding-you wants to guide your inner life and heal your relationship with yourself.
The new-you exists as a latent intelligence, a living consciousness, that can rouse your heart, animate your genius, give you a new purpose, and heal and restore your life.
The awakened-you can give you a new path that oﬀers a multitude of opportunities for fulfillment and joy. On that path lies the opportunity for reunion with your true nature and Divine Source.
For all of that to happen, you must allow the evolved-you to direct your thoughts, emotions, and actions. In short, you must live in alignment with the consciousness of your better-self.
The question is, How? Here’s some of the how.
Second, by understanding that your escapist behaviors are forms of addiction whose intention is to keep you from healing and, more important, from knowing the way back to the Light of your true nature and your Divine Source.
Third, by adopting a specific process — which is clearly presented in this program by Tom Monte — that will show you how to heal an aspect of yourself that lives in self- rejection, shame, and neglect.
Fourth, by entering deeply into your inner life and arriving at a place where you are met by the Source of Love and Divine Intelligence. There, Divine Intelligence bestows upon you a gift of a new way of being, a living consciousness that not only changes your life for the better, but also places you on a new and more rewarding path.
Fifth, by seeing how this evolved-you behaves in specific situations throughout your life. When you have clarity on (1) the behaviors that bring suﬀering, and (2) you can see clearly the actions that you would take from the better-you, you have the power of choice — and the freedom to be your better-self.
The practical methods for accomplishing all of these steps are presented in-depth in this program, LIVING IN ALIGNMENT WITH YOUR BETTER-SELF, an eight module transformational program that takes place in Northampton, Massachusetts, beginning in September and meeting monthly until April 2019.
THE JOURNEY OF THE SACRED PARADOX
Escapist behaviors are complex reactions to stress that are largely unconscious and filled with automatic thoughts, emotions, and actions that cause all of us tremendous suﬀering. They include the use of food, alcohol, drugs, chronic anger, rage, withdrawal of love, criticism, perfectionism, neediness, internet indulgence, television, and workaholism.
By causing more pain, escapist behaviors cover up the real sources of our suﬀering, and therefore prevent us from ever truly healing.
The journey of the sacred paradox is this: Rather than try to escape your pain and all that you fear, you must face it, and transform it. You do that by bringing awareness to your inner life, especially to the places where you hold that suﬀering. Awareness, an extremely powerful healing aspect of your being, is pure consciousness, free of judgments, criticism, and rejection of self and others. Awareness contains within it Divine Intelligence, the very essence of being that heals and bestows upon you a gift of insight, renewal, and guidance for a new way of being.
THE CLARITY AND POWER OF KNOWING HOW THE NEW-YOU BEHAVES IN SPECIFIC SITUATIONS
As you discover this evolved-you, you will learn how your better-self thinks, behaves, and feels, especially in situations that currently cause you conflict or pain. You will better understand the specific challenges you face, and visualize how your better-self functions in relationship to your partner, children, at work, with diﬃcult people, and in many other areas of your life.
As you see more clearly the image of the evolved-you, you naturally flow into that state of being, especially as you visualize and practice acting from a new and higher state of consciousness. The results are an amazing transformation that is much easier than you may believe.

SOME TESTIMONIALS FROM THOSE WHO HAVE TAKEN TOM’S PROGRAMS
“A session with Tom Monte is one of the most potent, revelatory, healing and loving experiences I’ve ever had. I felt met and received in ways that were so profound. Deep and lasting change and healing happened as a result of my work with Tom. He is one of the finest healers, teachers and human souls I have ever met. I am beyond grateful for his heart, his integrity, his presence and the sincere generosity of all that he shares and teaches.”
“Tom Monte defies a simple definition. He is for certain an extraordinary healer and teacher. He is a scholar, and author of many wellness books. He is a wise man who is a gift to us all during a time of such difficulty and confusion. He was a gift to me. I was a successful person until a deluge of life crises for over a decade had me on my knees. I became an integrative nutrition coach and a health counselor prior to my studies with him. The transformational work I have accomplished during my studies with Tom are nearly incredulous. I have written a book. I have become a teacher, public speaker and a leader in the New Self Health Movement. My counseling work has evolved beyond recognition and I am mentoring others. Most important to me is that I have healed years of suffering and torment and forged deeply healthy loving relationships with my husband and children. Wherever you are in your life, after you have worked with Tom you will be in your next best place.”
“Working With Tom has transformed my life. I have had the honor of learning from Tom for the last 5 years both as a three time student in the healer’s course as well as private and couples counseling. I am inspired by so many things about Tom, but the ones that come to mind are his focus, patience, unyielding compassion, stamina and of course love. There are few people in any professional be it therapy, bodywork or medical doctors that are capable of holding you in your deepest, ugliest pain and both honoring that place while simultaneously seeing your best and brightest self and always leading you towards that. Tom helped me through serious illness and many surgeries, going above and beyond every step of the way. I trust him with all aspects of myself and through this work I have found a loving partner, a new career path that brings me excitement and joy and an evolving spirituality that guides my life. I am and will be forever grateful to have Tom in my life.”
“In the years that I have worked with Tom I have been continually astounded by the ever-evolving depth of his wisdom, generosity, integrity and compassion. He is a healer unlike any other I have encountered, helping those of us fortunate enough to be under his care to not just get better or feel better, but to transform beyond what we had ever imagined possible. He manages to offer tremendous insight and intuitive guidance, while simultaneously assisting us to take responsibility for our own growth, so that we leave with a sense of being both tenderly held and set entirely free.”
“I know mystical aspects are harder to talk about or share, perhaps people have to discover them, but so much of what goes on in a healing with Tom occurs in invisible and powerful layers that I feel that, more than anyone I have ever met, he has the finesse and communication skills to explore these subjects in conversation and to share his explorations with others. There’s something about the combination between conversation and the respectful approaching or invoking of the mysterious, even the miraculous, that is very very particular to Tom ways of teaching and counseling. A session with Tom is a concentrated dose of wisdom and light, there’s not a chance that you will be the same after you talk to him, via phone or in person. He’s a life changing experience, even if you only see him once.”

“It is difficult to describe the incredible and transformative experience I have had through my relationship with Tom Monte. He is a rare person with a healing gift to guide anybody through the process of confronting past wounds, gaining clarity and truth in alignment with the heart and creating the life one wants and is meant to have. I first met and began work with Tom over 4 years ago. At the time, I was disconnected from my heart in a way that I was not true to myself or others and I was making choices that took me to a very dark place. Tom’s one-on-one work with me and group sessions offered through his programs helped me to change all of that. I am in a much better place in my life as a result of my work Tom and his teachings. I continue to work with Tom on a regular basis and he has been nothing short of a loving and divine teacher to me. Tom helps me face and over come challenges and he has helped me solve problems that arise from my inner thoughts and feelings, family matters and as a business executive. Most importantly, my entire family has benefited from my work with Tom and his involvement with each member to varying degrees. Tom’s guiding support has profoundly improved my presence and accountability as a husband, father, friend and business partner. I feel happy to know that somebody reading this may choose to seek his light-filled guidance.”
