Transcend was established with the aim of sharing the powerful life-transforming effects of integrating psychotherapy, fitness and meditation with people who wish to enhance their life experience on all levels.

Transcend training is a way of self-transformation by increasing awareness, self-discipline and relaxation.

Psychotherapy is used as means of identifying and transcending dysfunctional mental patterns so one can reconnect with ones inner wisdom.

Fitness training and nutrition are used to facilitate personal growth by removing the limitations of an unfit body. “To keep the body in good health is a duty…otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.” – Buddha

​​ Meditation is used to attain a superior level of brain functioning by tapping into dormant levels of brain functioning that exist in each and every one of us. Meditation is also known for providing practitioners with emotional health, as it rids the mind of subconscious layers of anger, depression, anxiety, fear, phobias and sadness, and produces a perfect mental and emotional balance.
