The countries in yellow are currently able to access a Trans4mind website for men and women in their native language:
The NetworkThe Trans4mind Network is an international network of websites in different languages that co-operate to deliver the Trans4mind vision and which use the Trans4mind brand and system of presentation.
In the Network each Trans4mind website is produced and managed by a Trans4mind Service Provider, working alone or when possible supported by a community which may include authors, web designers, translators, video and audio producers, poets, musicians, photographers, educationalists, coaches, counselors, psychotherapists, technicians, public speakers, financial donors and other interested people, whom the Trans4mind Service Provider has recruited over time to work with him or her in public service. This community of people work together, to deliver personal development products and services, created with extraordinary care, brought to the site visitor using the Trans4mind brand and system.
The FoundersThe original Trans4mind site for men and women, Trans4mind.com, was founded by Peter Shepherd (psychologist) in 1998. Supported by Nicole his wife (educationalist) and Wallace Huey (personal development trainer), together they have created the Trans4mind vision, brand, system, and network. Peter and Nicole live in France; Peter is Managing Director and Webmaster of Trans4mind.com. Wallace Huey lives in Ireland and he directs the Life Mastery Training. Orsolya Riszt, the Hungarian Service Provider also serves as Manager of the Trans4mind Network of Service Providers.
Online Service ProvidersIn addition to the long-running Trans4mind.com, Nicole Shepherd established the French version of Trans4mind a few years back: Trans4mind.fr. Eugenio Rincón who lives in Mexico launched the Spanish version of Trans4mind in Spring 2009: Trans4mind.es. Martina Geromin established the German version of Trans4mind in Oct 2009: Trans4mind.de. The latest additions to our team are Orsolya Riszt who created Trans4mind.hu in Hungarian; Kelly Chaya who created Trans4mind.ae in Arabic; Bas and Agnès van Gaalen who created Trans4mind.nl in Dutch; and Ryszard Chwałek and Beata Michalska who created Trans4mind.pl in Polish. The beginnings of Trans4mind.it were created in Italian - however this site now needs a new Service Provider as does the Trans4mind.in site in Hindi. You can learn more about these Service Providers below.
Sites in need of a new Service Provider
Held at the Trans4mind Training Center in the beautiful countryside of Burgundy, France, this was the annual gathering of Service Providers - those inspired individuals around the world who run a Trans4mind personal development site in their own language.
We're in the heart of France, based at the Cultural Center Table-Tableau, Bourgogne. The energies here are cleaner than clean; it is easy to feel serene in the silence and tranquility; mindfulness is a breath away.
In this video, the participants introduce themselves one by one, and you'll see some shots of our activities. We included Tai Chi and meditation practice; healing with essential oils, massage and EFT; painting; lots of informative audios and videos; plus discussion and planning. Alongside, we had trips to the local countryside - swimming in the lakes, walking along the canals, exploring parks and so on...

Our Goal is to Provide Services in all the Major World Languages...
Who is Peter Shepherd, founder and managing director of Trans4mind.com?
He realized that inner gnosis - intuitive knowledge of spiritual truth - was the way to go, since fundamental truths are simple and graspable when we look inside to our intuitive understanding. What remained complex was the structure of mind, and the million and one ways that mind sneaks in to obscure or corrupt our natural insight.
Thus began a quest to understand the mind and the spirit and to find out how to master these things. He received training in Rational-Emotive psychology but also studied the 'transpersonal' dimension of consciousness, that which is beyond the Ego personality, as pioneered by Assagioli, Grof and others. He found these two divergent branches of psychology only really formed the full picture when combined as one. The everyday, rational and behavioral understandings of psychology were just as important as the more esoteric understandings to do with consciousness, and in fact each needed the other to provide a true and holistic picture of things.
He wrote the book Transforming the Mind which summarized his knowledge to date, and further developed the most effective methods he'd found to create a set of home study courses, accessible and beneficial to all. Moving to France, he began running the web site full time, to reach all those people who are looking for the same things he had searched so long for - and to be of service in the most valuable way he knew how.
As individuals, our being has several components: consciousness; mental processes; emotions; and the physical. One depends on the others. Even the layers of our brain - the cortex, limbic system and primitive/reptilian - correspond to our head, heart and gut. Each can do nothing much on its own.
We function in the world according to our programming. This software is in our minds and the hardware is our brain and nervous system. We are largely unaware that we can actually change this programming, switch one program for another, or actually to rise above the level of mind and write new programs for ourselves as the meta-programmer. We can do this as individuals (see The Insight Project) and we can do this as humanity; it is our God-like spiritual nature. But first we have to come to terms with reality and point ourselves in the right direction… Start a New Life! is the home-study course Peter has developed for that purpose.
Peter comments: "Because we are each such different individuals, with personal goals and at different stages on our various paths, we at Trans4mind have found there is no singular tool for transformation, there are many, and we've tried to select the very best ones for our web site. We trust that you will benefit immensely."
Peter's goal in life has been to break free of the consensus trance, to find instead his own truth and to help others find their own truth also. He declares his life purpose to be: "To contribute and maintain the services needed to help human beings consciously evolve toward a more loving, peaceful and just world." Toward this purpose, Peter manages the Trans4mind Network of Service Providers, offering Trans4mind sites in many world languages.
Who is Wallace Huey, manager of the Trans4mind Network?
There followed a decade of extreme mental torment from which he emerged a transformed human being. After working for a period for an international charity as a volunteer, he went back to the world of management, this time as a self-employed consultant. In 2000, after a profound spiritual awakening, he wrote his book, Unfold Your Wings and Watch Life Take Off, a poetic manual that takes the hand of the reader and gently guides them toward a powerful dependency on inner guidance. While writing the book he courted and married his soul mate Carolyn and moved to Dublin, where he now lives. In Dublin Wallace worked as a personal development trainer, but realized he had insufficient energy to carry on with his public speaking engagements, due to his mental condition. Feeling at a dead end, Wallace turned within for guidance and received powerful inspiration to work voluntarily as a Heart to Heart coach on an Internet magazine, being immediately guided toward Peter Shepherd and the Cultivate Life! emagazine.
Peter accepted Wallace's offer to coach on Cultivate Life! straight away and, after a number of months, Wallace and Peter began to develop the Heart to Heart service and the Trans4mind website together. Today, Wallace partners with Peter on development work for the whole Trans4mind site and its future plans. Recently, after a marked improvement in Wallace's health, he has felt inspired to return to public speaking in his role as an inspirational speaker, introducing the public to a more tranquil way of life through his Life Mastery Training workshops at Dublin. Wallace is Director of Life Mastery Training at Trans4mind and he developed the curriculum with Peter Shepherd. The future plans for Life Mastery are exciting - including a world-wide dimension - and you'll be hearing lots more.
What is the source of Wallace's inspiration?
Wallace has a five-fold mission:
You can find out more about Wallace by reading his online and paperback book at Unfold Your Wings and Watch Life Take Off, and his Inner Guidance Training resources. We need to face up to the challenges of life but where can we turn for support? Fortunately there is a great resource available at all times - our inner guidance. Wallace's book provides many personal examples of how inner guidance has proven invaluable, and his training courses teach each of us how to recognize and use this essential gift.

Who is Nicole Shepherd, the producer of Trans4mind in French?
10 years ago she met Peter Shepherd as a student on his Insight Project course of spiritual development and soon discovered they share the same ideals and values. Indeed they share an unconditional love that has enlightened both of their lives. Peter moved to France and they married in 2003.
Now that Nicole is free to work more on the Trans4mind site, expect to see the French version advance rapidly. In addition, Nicole will be contributing her experience and expertise in the fields of education, parenting and relationships in the form of articles and eBooks, both in English and French. You can find out more about Nicole on the French website, Trans4mind.fr and on her Bio page.
Who is Eugenio Rincón, the producer of Trans4mind in Spanish?
In recent times, his search found a reference in Buddhist spirituality. Since then he has been practicing daily meditation and yoga.
Visionary authors like Eckhart Tolle, Guy Finley, Ken Wilber, Jiddu Krishnamurti, David Bohm and the founders of the Transpersonal Psychology, have been a very positive influence, from which Eugenio was able to build a vision that had more meaning and depth, including what he finds is essential for living in a harmonious way.
In this path of self knowledge, Eugenio recognized the value of the materials and services available at Trans4mind and decided to accept the responsibility to assist in the development of this service in its Spanish language version. You can find out more about Eugenio on the Spanish-language website, Trans4mind.es.
Dr. Martina Holzer Geromin has doctoral studies in educational sciences, training in gifted education, cosmology, alternative medicine, career and life coaching, and is license holder for the concept Feel the fear... and do it anyway in Italy.
"My main interest in the last 10-15 years has been the promotion of an individual's talents and helping to overcome their blockages, one of which is any kind of anxiety. The central task of my work is to filter out such blockages from each individual in order to enable the person to play their potential in society. My current job is in the field of coaching (particularly career coaching), which supports my primary objective: to convince every person of their uniqueness already existing inside, and to express this with the necessary self-confidence in each type of challenge they face.
"Trans4mind likewise is dedicated to the task of helping people in this process of self-discovery. We stand with great conviction behind the Trans4mind vision and are pleased to contribute the German site to the Network and be allowed to participate actively in the shaping of a humane world."
On Martina's personal site, Be You - Unique you can get a clearer picture about her personal vision and the services she provides.
You can find out more about Martina on her German-language website, Trans4mind.de.
Who is Orsolya Riszt, producer of Trans4mind in Hungarian?
By learning to be focused, to live in the moment, to take responsibility for her actions and reactions, to handle and direct her thoughts and emotions - in short, through personal development - she dared to be herself again. And she is deeply convinced that anybody can make such a transformation. If an individual is just a little bit open to better his or her life, they will see that the help they need is available, in particular through the tools for transformation that Trans4mind presents. Now, thanks to Orsolya, in Hungarian too.
Note: Hungarian is an official language in the autonomous province of Vojvodina, Serbia and in parts of Slovenia. Hungarian is not an official language in Romania but it is spoken in parts of it.
You can find out more about Orsolya on her Hungarian website, Trans4mind.hu.
Who is Kelly Chaya, the producer of Trans4mind in Arabic?
"I had the opportunity to grow spiritually and feel the real meaning of life, happiness, love, abundance, and being in a state of peace. This is by realizing that we each are a unique and gifted human “being”, not human “doing”. Our purpose is in BEING human—emotive and insightful—not just doing things mechanically and without a purpose."
Kelly desires to spread this valuable information from Trans4Mind. She knows that change starts with one person, who can and will make a difference. We have more similarities with one another than differences and it is our job to learn, grow and enjoy the beauties of life together. Kelly is determined to spread the meaning of peace, love, and light to the world so that everyone can enjoy the diversity of life - with different cultures, religions, beliefs and social lifestyles - leading us to the ultimate life, to whatever is on “the other side.”
By translating Trans4mind from English to Arabic, great tools for transformation for Arabic speakers have finally become available. Arabic is one of the most spoken languages in the world as it is native to more than 422 million tongues. You can find out more about Kelly on her Arabic website, Trans4mind.ae.
Who are Bas and Agnès van Gaalen, the producers of Trans4mind in Dutch?
Our mottos... Be yourself with others. Share. And not just talk about it! Then let 'should' be replaced by 'want'.
What has led us brought us to join this particular project? We joined Trans4mind to empower us to contribute to a better world, including a more tolerant society. Consciously dealing with the planet and Mankind, because we eventually have to get it together.
In the present time, there is increasing pressure on people. To stay positive under this pressure is, for many, a task. Realistic but also positive thinking is important, so you can rely on yourself and the environment as an individual in connection with others.
Trans4mind has the resources people need to support this process of self-development. The big vision is to provide strategies for as many people as possible. We want to contribute toward a world that is based on mutual respect and where every human being matters. We stand with great conviction behind this Vision and enjoy working on the Dutch Trans4mind to do our part.
Who are Ryszard Chwałek and Beata Michalska, the producers of Trans4mind in Polish?
During the last 2 years we've learned coaching methods that we utilize in our managing and training jobs. We focused on on-line teaching and learning (using learning platforms, webinars, Internet courses via email and audio materials).
We think that cooperation with Trans4mind gives us a great opportunity to deliver personal development trainings (via Internet) in Poland with a high level of quality.
You know, it really does not matter what place you are now, much more important is that you made the first steps, and to live life to the fullest.
Think! Together, we can change the world!
We begin soon on the course material based on Peter Shepherd's "Positive Approach" and the method of "21days to develop a new positive habit". If you wish to receive an invitation for this course please contact us.
