Searching Within was Belsebuub’s free course on self-knowledge and inner change. First published in 2001 as weekly topics that were downloadable as PDF’s, it reached tens of thousands of people and changed many lives with its simple and practical approach to the exploration of consciousness.
People could join the course in one of eighteen cities across four continents where it was offered in person or sign up for the online version of the course, which had participants from dozens of countries across the globe.
Many participants in the course described the profound impact the course had on them. People noted how they were able to break free from harmful emotional states such as anger, anxiety, or depression, see and detach themselves from negative thoughts, achieve heightened states of awareness and consciousness, improve their relationships and communication with others, and begin to discover a more spiritual way of being in daily life.
Belsebuub wrote the Searching Within course based on decades of his own personal experience.
This course provided a step-by-step approach to understanding one’s own psychology. Participants learned how to observe and study their thoughts, emotions, and behavior in daily life, to gradually overcome negative inner states, and to develop spiritual greater peace and happiness. The course included a series of topics and exercises that built progressively upon each other over a nine-week period. This learning structure allowed people to gradually explore the information within their own lives, which Belsebuub states is how truly meaningful self-knowledge is gained.

The Peace of the Spirit Within
First published in 2006, The Peace of the Spirit Within was a revised and updated version of the Searching Within course in book form. As Belsebuub explained in its introduction, the book was designed to be “a detailed, easy to understand guide to inner change that can ultimately lead you to wisdom and peace.”1
The book closely followed the nine-week structure of the course, with each week including a corresponding exercise and questions and answers. Over the course of the book, readers could discover the different components of the psyche, learn how to experience consciousness, understand inner states, improve relationships, and much more.
The book emphasizes the importance of reflecting on the deeper purpose of life and observing our internal world of thoughts and emotions in order to make a change for the better. As Belsebuub notes, “life is what we experience inwardly. This is where to look for the starting point of change.”2
