This course takes the unexpected element out of your eureka moment and creates a situation – an environment – where the moment occurs as part of the process. The exercises recreate the circumstances necessary for having a flash of insight.
The material is based on the author's book and workbook, both of which are included free in PDF form with this course (a $27 value). It is an online version of his live seminar that hundreds have attended.
The lessons will give you insight, clarity, and direction. You will come away with a deeper sense of who you are, where you are going, and what you need to do to get there.
Included with the course is a copy of the newest edition of the Eureka Workbook in PDF form. This workbook is produced for use in lives seminars and has been completely redesigned as a companion to online learning. Its exercises, reflection questions, and personal Eureka statement are also included as standalone documents.
The course can be completed over a weekend.
You should take this course if you have ever felt that you were stuck in one way or another. Is there one situation, relationship, or circumstance that isn’t exactly what you want but you aren’t sure what else you might do? Perhaps you want transformation, but don’t want whole life turned upside down. You jut want more from life and more congruency between who you are on the inside and what you do on the outside. You are just the kind of person who can benefit from this book.
This lecture helps you decide if you are ready to invest yourself in the exercises of this course. You will benefit most when you are emotionally ready to commit to the process.
Dr. Nybo explains one of two Biblical understandings that undergird this process. From the book of Psalms comes the idea that God's word and wisdom guide us the way a flashlight can. It can show us what is directly in front of us at our feet or give us direction by showing us what is ahead of us, in the future.
This lecture encourages you that this is a well practiced process. Many have been through it and benefited. It also gives you an idea of the kinds of exercises you will do.
This lecture motivates you to do more than watch the videos. This course is not just about gaining knowledge. It is about doing something practical with that knowledge. There is a difference "between knowing the path and walking the path."
This is the Reflection and Review lecture in a downloadable and printable form.
Dr. Nybo describes the five primary components that make up the exercises in this course. These include:
1. Uplifting or spiritual experiences
2. The core of who you are and what you do
3. Your future
4. Putting it all together
5. Making a personal commitment.
This lecture gives a brief overview of a key academic foundation for this process - Appreciative Inquiry.
With an interesting personal story about the USS Nimitz aircraft carrier, Dr. Nybo introduces the concept of surrender. This is a necessary part of the Eureka process.
This lecture introduces the second and final Biblical idea in this process, the idea of creating an environment for growth. Dr. Nybo explains that this idea comes from Jesus' story of a farmer (the parable of the sower) in the book of Mark in the New Testament.
This lesson explains that this course work is benefitted by doing it with other people and looks at options for including others in your process.
Dr. Nybo walks you through the second exercise in the process, dealing with your own core.
Dr. Nybo describes his third Eureka moment that includes an understanding of where he wants to be five years from now.
This lecture helps you determine your time horizon. You may want to look ahead one, three, or five years based on your current situation.
Dr. Nybo walks you through the third exercise in the process, dealing with your own future, I,3, or 5 years from now.
Dr. Nybo walks you through the fourth exercise in the process, helping you put together everything you have been working on.
