"I had a lot of skepticism when I started with ReSurfacing and was a bit reluctant. Within a day, I was blown away by the simplicity of it all. You have to do it yourself, no one will do it for you. I learned a lot about myself and discovered another me." - H. O., Holland

"I now have the power to decide what I need, with confidence, from now on. It was only two days, but it started changing my life, and I am really excited to go for my future." Y. Y., Japan


StudentOnCourseWeekend Workshop Experience

Realizations are the building blocks of self awareness

Realizations result in beneficial changes in your health, your relationships, and your perspectives of life. Realizations give rise to qualities like responsibility, maturity, compassion, tolerance, patience, discernment, confidence, and self care.

Section I exercises provide you with tools that allow you to examine hidden beliefs that have influenced the blueprint by which you build your life. The journey results in an intimate connection with a deeper, more compassionate and holistic self awareness. 

Section I is offered in affordable weekend workshops that contain experiential exercises to awaken you to the unlimited possibilities and empowerment of living deliberately. Typically scheduled in a two day in-person or three-day online class, facilitators are experienced Avatar Masters who will guide you on your unique self-discovery path.


"I had already devoured every self-help program I could find. And at 31 years, I felt old. Another year, more money, more responsibilities, more frustration. I spent the last 16 years piling on resistances. I removed those resistances in a few days and laughed while I did it. This course is a bargain at any price: it's the best investment I’ve ever made! And now I’m back, and I love it! Thank you for helping me fall in love with me again." - M. S., Indiana

"I generated calmness and relaxation. I released emotional charge and reduced stress levels. I regained free attention and improved my will power and well being. I've gained an enhanced feeling of happiness, feeling lighter and energetic. My consciousness evolved and my clarity of mind has improved." - Afzal A. K., USA

ReSurfacing refers to the action of disentangling yourself from old creations and rising back into awareness. It is a process, paralleling nature, of revealing yourself to yourself. The rewards are new insights and realizations about how your life works—or why it doesn’t.

ReSurfacing is an expedition into consciousness that you personalize according to your own needs. How far you go is a matter for you to determine, and the truth you discover will be your truth.

The exercises will lead you to an experience of your personal study materials. These are the motives and principles that govern your existence. They are as unique as your fingerprints. Discovering them will take you to new places and new viewpoints that will dramatically broaden your comprehension of existence.

As you proceed you will become aware of your own creative power. It will surprise and amaze you. Should you choose to follow this power to its source, you will find a measureless sea of awareness extending beyond time, consciousness, and creation. Ancient companions wait for you (t)here.

"I have embraced myself during this course and learned to love and appreciate all aspects of myself. To love daily life is such a wonderful, bright, simple place to be."
- Mary D.W., USA

"The Avatar Course has taught me to recognize my indoctrinations, and gave me modalities to deal with my fears and exercises to get a quiet mind. I’ve learned a lot and experienced a very light feeling without limitations." - Fieke B., Netherlands

“This workshop was a game changer. I’d already done a lot of personal development work so I didn’t really think ReSurfacing would have much impact. Wow! I was about to get the surprise of my life. I’m so glad I listened to my intuition and did this course. Best choice I’ve ever made!”  - Bonnie P., Florida

 “I have clarity now on the fact that I have the power to change my beliefs and can take control of my destiny and what I attract into my life. I’ve never been more connected with a huge sense of belonging to anything in my life before.” - Margaux H., Texas


Avatar Path

The Avatar Path is a breadcrumb trail of human potential courses for anyone who wishes to accelerate his or her own evolution to higher awareness.

ReSurfacing is Section I of the Avatar path. It is the foundation for all the following courses.

Each section of Avatar builds upon exercises and abilities developed in the previous training.

The Avatar Course Sections II and III are often taught immediately following the ReSurfacing workshop. ReSurfacing, Section II, and Section III are collectively referred to as The Avatar Course.

The Avatar Master Course is for Avatar Course graduates who have been invited to become a trained and licensed Avatar teacher.

The Avatar Integrity Course, Professional Course, and Wizard Course are available to Avatar Masters.


"As a long time participant/observer of the human potential movement I have experienced a variety of programs and techniques designed to produce enlightenment and/or altered states of consciousness. Before Avatar I could only hope and pray that enlightenment would come with patience and due diligence. Avatar has given me the freedom to create the life I choose without dragging around the baggage of bogus beliefs I held so long." - Joseph B., Ph.D., USA

"Having had a 30 year career in predominantly corporate environments, I had access to a multitude of courses/conferences and management theory on Leadership, Personal Growth and Development. Never though has any of the material been as comprehensive and transformational as the Avatar tool kit. The quality, the obvious knowledge, and skill in putting the materials together, the heart, the compassion, and integrity in which it has been compiled, hold it in such great stead." - June M., USA

"I am delighted that today, I finally know who I am, after 40 years of life. The Avatar tools showed me that I wore armor so heavy that I could never truly look inside myself to see that I don’t need it. Now I can interact with myself, discover, and decide where I want to go, and move myself in that direction. I can attract energies that facilitate my path to the destination I dream of to make it real." - Adriana R., Brazil

"I have just finished the first two days of Avatar, ReSurfacing. It has been a period of substantial growth for me and I should acknowledge the enormous amount of selfless support I have received. Without it I would be forever floundering! The Masters are amazingly masterful and generous." - J. H., Australia




Avatar Section II: The Exercises


Aspects of consciousness addressed: Creation, Perception, Experience

Section II of the course leads you to reconnect with an experiential awareness of your own existence and to recover the effortless ability to create personal reality.

"With the Section II materials, you start exploring. Little expeditions into the backyard of your consciousness. You practice the specific abilities and tools that are required to successfully manage what you are already experiencing in life. It’s an opportunity to get your affairs in order before the big adventure begins."  – Harry Palmer


Description +

On Section II of The Avatar Course you practice the specific abilities and tools that are required to successfully manage what you are already experiencing in life. Section II clarifies and expands an extrasensory perceptual channel to the physical universe that you may already be vaguely aware of-extended feeling. This is a non-sensory feeling that does not require physical contact. It quiets the mind and dramatically enhances your sense of being.

Section II develops your ability to create a reality that you prefer. Deeper access to your own mental programming results in transformational realizations about why certain aspects of your life have fallen short and what you can do to correct them.You turn the part of self that was your worst enemy into a guiding friend.

Self-sabotaging beliefs are exposed before they can do you more harm. Stress is replaced by a relaxed awareness.

You learn how to experience reality without judgment, separation, or distortion.

Section II requires 4 to 5 days to complete, depending upon what is encountered.

The cost of Section Two is $ 500.00* USD.

* USA pricing. Prices vary from country to country.

What you will uncover +

LivDel NEW

The following text is excerpted from the book Living Deliberately: The Discovery and Development of Avatar by Harry Palmer.

Question: Is it like meditation?

Harry: Yes and no. It produces the same type of mental stillness that meditation produces, but it does so in an interesting and much faster way. It’s like meditation in that it is about gaining mastery of the mind—allowing the mind to still—but Avatar does it playfully without the struggle or confrontation. It’s the difference between opening a safe by prying the door off or using the combination. Avatar is the combination.

Another exercise in Section II develops a skill in recognizing, creating, and changing judgments. This really begins to wake you up to the patterns in your life.

We experience what we experience in accordance with our judgments, which are the beliefs through which we filter our perceptions.  Two people may experience the same event quite differently.  For one of them it is traumatic and ruins their life; for the other it is inconsequential.  The difference is determined by the judgments the two people place on the experience.

The end result of this exercise is the ability to honestly relax judgment on anything being experienced. If you have been struggling with a body condition or a relationship, this exercise produces powerful realizations and turning-point experiences.

The final part of the Section II materials contains tools and exercises to remove barriers or blocks that you may have placed in front of your ability to create reality. We describe it as the most challenging experience anyone ever laughed through. It causes smile cramps in your face, increases your ability to create, and restores your control over existence.

Satisfaction Guarantee +

If you are not completely satisfied with the results you achieve in Section II, don’t go on to Section III. There’s nothing in Section III that fixes poor results in Section II. The Section II exercises are the exercises that help you create the ability to learn the powerful discreation technique in Section III. 

You are welcome to a full refund of the course at this point. Once you begin Section III, no refunds will be given.



Avatar Section III: The Procedures


Aspects of consciousness addressed: Identity, Beingness, Awareness

Section III of the course explores the foundational beliefs that create the universe and presents a simple and effective technique for managing beliefs. The technique is used in a series of rundowns to address conflicts, limitations, persistent conditions, and even pain.

"With Section III you will become an expert on the solo Avatar procedures. Now you are ready to explore. With the solo procedures and the occasional assistance of a trainer or fellow student, you begin your explo­ration with the Avatar rundowns. Each rundown addresses an area of experiences, beliefs, or attitudes that may be interfering with your appreciation of life."– Harry Palmer


Bench girl


Description +

Section III is the main course. It begins with a guided initiation session conducted by an Avatar Master.

The initiation takes you on a tour of some of the most fundamental, transparent belief structures of consciousness. Transparent, because instead of seeing them, you see through them. The initiation experientially introduces you to procedures and tools that you can use to self-determinedly manage your life. Normally, it is an insightful and enlightening experience and may leave you in a euphoric state for some time.

Section III of The Avatar Course develops your ability to discreate realities that act as hidden reefs and barriers to your operation as source. An Avatar Master takes you on a guided initiation that introduces you to, and allows you to discreate, some of the most fundamental (and previously transparent) belief structures of the universe.

Next, you complete solo rundowns that permit you to address body sensations, interpersonal conflicts, dependencies, limitations, persistent conditions, compulsions and (without words or argument) the beliefs of others.

When you are able to manage any aspect of your existence from a creator viewpoint, you have achieved the state of being called Avatar.

Section III requires 2 to 4 days to complete.

The cost of Section III is $ 1500.00* usd.

USA pricing. Prices vary from country to country.



Q&A With Harry +

HP19Question: How Does Avatar Work?

Harry: Doing the exercises of the Avatar Course produces a gradual increase in self-awareness. A natural outcome of this increased self-awareness is recognition of the reactive and unconscious factors that are negatively affecting your abilities, your relationships, your health, and your spiritual wellbeing. These factors can be identified and discreated. The result is a recovery of an ability to live deliberately—meaning the ability to determine your own beliefs and mental attitudes without being swayed by hidden influences. Discreation is more than a concept; it is a third level Avatar ability that functions flawlessly when certain other first and second level abilities are understood and practiced.

To discreate means to halt the production of a mental event; to turn it off; to cease creating it, to let go of it. It is a halt to an existing flow of energy rather than a new or opposing flow of energy.

(From the Avatar materials, Section III)

"It's yours and you're creating it, and then you decide you're not going to create it anymore and it is gone."

The Procedures +

The Body Handle Procedure
The first process is called Body Handle. It assists you in recognizing the beliefs that keep you identified with a physical body, and if you choose, show you how to function independently of a body. You experience yourself as a nonmaterial spiritual being. It produces effects similar to sensory deprivation tanking, but without the risk of isolation or panic reactions and much more quickly.

Body Handle also helps you to identify undesirable perceptions and sensations that you have actually been installing in the body. The illusion was that they were coming from the body. The result is that the body is no longer held out of alignment by injurious beliefs or judgments.

A fascinating, side effect of the Body Handle is the lucid, or controlled, dreaming that it produces. You learn to enter the dream state of consciousness without going to sleep. Some students have reported experiences of floating or flying and of exploring alternate dimensions.

The Limitations Procedure
The second process is called Limitations. Most people are aware that they say , ‘I can’t do this. . . I can’t do that,’ and then we wonder why they can’t do it.

Children’s stories talk about the little steam engine that thought he could, and the notion of positive thinking has been around for years. Well, this is a new look at the subject.

Here is where you can address the specific limitations that interfere with the goals that excite you and bring you to life.  You will probably not choose to handle all limitations, since some serve to focus your life.

The Identities Procedure
The third process is called Identities. Most people have a mental closet full of costumes that they carry around and project onto the people they meet.

When we get along well with people, it is generally because they are willing to wear the costumes we offer them, and we are willing to wear the ones supplied by them. But have you ever had someone put an identity on you that you didn’t want to wear?

When you perceive another person without any costumes, judgments, or belief filters, you perceive them as a spiritual being. It is a profoundly moving experience to purely perceive another being without any distortion. It is a compassionate space that some have called unconditional love.

The Persistent Mass Handle Procedure
The fourth process is called Persistent Mass Handle. It gently guides you into the most resisted aspects of your life. You can address desires, compulsions, persistent pressures, and pains that may have seemed beyond your control.  The first sessions of Persistent Mass are done with another person acting as a facilitator. This is a very powerful process and produces amazing, life-changing results.

The Universe Handle & Collective Consciousness Handle Procedures
The fifth and sixth processes are called respectively Universe Handle and Collective Consciousness Handle. You do these rundowns after you have resolved your own personal conflicts and wish to help the collective consciousness of life.

One of the ideas you create early in life is the idea of being someone. In fact, being someone is the experience of a belief.  If you take awareness plus a belief about being someone and put them together, you get an individual. You can stay an individual by creating more beliefs that separate you further from collective consciousness—or with the Avatar procedures, you can eliminate the beliefs that cause separation, and experience a collective consciousness.  You can change any beliefs that you may have that separate you from pure creative awareness—the Aware Will.

In the Universe Handle process, you learn that all things are connected at some level of consciousness. In a sense, there is no individual consciousness, only segments of collective consciousness. With this exercise, you work on locating the limits that prevent you from joining the collective consciousness and operating within it.

This obviously is a very high state of attainment, and students will vary in their ability and willingness to employ this technique.

The Ultimate Process
The last exercise is named The Ultimate Process. It is aptly named. It is guided by another person.

The whole course takes about nine days, depending upon you.
