54-Year-Old Psychology Teacher Loses 155 Pounds In 10 Months By Applying His Own Teachings To Himself
Date:3/12/2009

ERIE, Pa., March 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Jordan Lapides, a 54-year-old teacher of Spirituality Psychology and founder of The Freedom Foundation For Weight Loss And Spiritual Development in Pennsylvania, was recently challenged by one of his students to apply his own Spiritual Teachings to his weight problem. Lapides took up the challenge and lost over 150 pounds in 10 months. Lapides' unique story has sparked a media frenzy. He has appeared on television, radio and in magazines where he elaborated on his teachings.

The main interest lies in Jordan's remarkable ability to combine his Spiritual principals directly to the weight loss. He states, "These principals can be utilized by anybody who simply puts them into practice." The concept of combining Spirituality with weight loss is untapped territory just waiting to be discovered. This is why he's generating so much publicity and interest from the media.

Mr. Lapides states, "Virtually every human being on Earth is overweight in some way or another." He follows that up by saying, "Through this journey of weight loss, I offer viable proof that the proper application of Spiritual Truth can indeed free any person from the prison of their own false nature and distorted self identity."

While weight loss is important, what sets Lapides apart is that while most Spiritual teachers present wonderful Spiritual principals, Mr. Lapides takes it further by actually teaching his students exactly how to apply these principals to their daily lives in a very practical way.

Lapides states, "Reading books is good. However, having a map of the city is not the same as actually being in the city."

He is known for giving his students "homework assignments." One recent assignments was, "See if you can stop talking about yourself ... even if it's for just a day."

Lapides states, "A person seeking Higher Truth can find it by looking in the mirror. That mirror may well be a stranger, a relative or even an enemy. The mirror of the Truth inside you can be found anywhere. It can be found as you walk through a mall, or while driving your children to school, or ever when quarreling with your spouse. Let all people, things and circumstances act as your teacher. By doing this you allow the Higher Teacher, who resides within all people to finally set you free. Remember, God doesn't need your help...He just needs your consent."

Lapides started teaching in 1997 in Minneapolis where his daily television show "Break Through" won 3 consecutive awards in 1998, 1999 and 2000 as "Outstanding Program."

Mr. Lapides is the author of the book "501 Prescriptions For Higher Spirituality" and is now working on his new book "Embracing The Storm" which is due out early next year.

Mr. Lapides is currently giving lecture and media tours.
