The Founder: Giovanni Dienstmann

Giovanni Dienstmann is a self-mastery coach, meditation teacher, and author who focuses on the intersection between wisdom, empowerment, and peace. He has over 12,000 hours of personal meditation practice, having kept the daily habit since March 21st, 2000.

Through his books, blog, and app, he teaches an awareness-based approach to self-development called The Higher Mind Method. His work combines insights from mindfulness, wisdom traditions, personal development, and psychology to give you a practical and comprehensive roadmap to personal growth.

As a meditation teacher, Giovanni founded LiveAndDare.com, which for years was among the top five most-visited meditation blogs on the planet, with thousands of raving fans. He wrote Practical Meditation, a book that was popularly called “The Meditation Bible”, and was translated into seven different languages. 

During this time he also created multiple meditation and wellbeing programs in English, French, Spanish, and Portuguese, downloaded by more than 50,000 people around the world, and became a sought-after consultant to award-winning meditation apps.

As a self-mastery coach, Giovanni runs HigherMind.com, a website focused on helping people develop self-discipline, confidence, and focus, through the power of the Higher Mind Method. He wrote the books Mindful Self-Discipline, a #1 Amazon Bestseller across several categories, and Wise Confidence, recently published by SoundsTrue.

Giovanni has helped executives, entrepreneurs, artists, musicians, traders, and pro athletes to live a more focused and purposeful life. Since 2014, he has been helping people to overcome distractions, procrastination, fear, anxiety, and self-doubt, so that they can achieve their goals and be the person they want to be.

Giovanni believes in giving back, and is particularly moved by the cause of ending child trafficking. As such, 10% of the monthly revenue of the Higher Mind app is donated to SharedHope International, a charity doing amazing work in this space.

The System — Higher Mind

The Higher Mind System brings together the best lessons from personal development, mindfulness, psychology, and spirituality into a cohesive and practical framework.

The purpose of the system is to help you fulfill your aspirations, explore your full potential, and become the person you want to be. It does this by bringing together different methods of self-transformation and goal achievement, giving each approach the space it deserves.

This system is a further expansion and consolidation of the books Mindful Self-Discipline and Wise Confidence. And, just like those works, it is

  • all about your goals, yet rooted in a deeper purpose
  • comprehensive, yet focused and pragmatic
  • motivational, but without the hype, yelling, or cursing
  • applicable to your work life, but not corporate-focused
  • informed by spiritual principles, but not dogmatic nor new-agey
  • The higher mind is responsible for your values, virtues, and aspirations. It has wisdom, awareness, and willpower. It can shape yourself, your life, and your environment as per your vision.
  • The lower mind is responsible for our impulses, emotions, and triggers. It is our reactive self, which focuses on short-term gains and is deeply shaped by our environment and external events.

The Higher Mind System is about cultivating your higher mind, and letting it lead your life to the desired destinations.  It does this by training you across seven areas or disciplines:

  1. Aspire → Be a creator, not a creature
  2. Plan → Bend your reality to your aspirations
  3. Act → Act as who you want to be
  4. Reflect → Grow your wisdom and awareness
  5. Meditate → Master your mind, master your life
  6. Overcome → Stay on the path
  7. Accelerate → Become a force of nature

Finally, the aspiration of this system is to be the ultimate roadmap for personal development, so that after implementing this system you need nothing else to live a fulfilling life. According to several of our best students, we are well on our way to live that aspiration.
