More than forty years ago Werner Erhard introduced the breakthrough notion of transformation and the est Training to the American public.

This notion of transformation created a clear distinction between change within an existing world view or frame of reference, and creating an entirely new ontological world view.

It subsequently came to be seen as a powerful, practical, and relevant resource in contemporary society. The ideas Werner developed have now found their way into organizations and societies all over the world.

The presentation The Heart of the Matter by Werner Erhard was delivered in San Francisco in 1985.

At all times and under all circumstances, we have the power to transform the quality of our lives.

― Werner Erhard
