Empowered Radiant Presence Initiation
I am very excited to announce my first global online Mysterial Leadership Depth Program launching in 2017.
In a world so out of balance, women are feeling the evolutionary pressure to grow; to come forward as leaders to create the change that is so needed. We’ve spent the last half-century breaking into the Masculine systems and structures, and now we’re at a major turning point; a rite of passage that is calling us to awaken and weave together our Deep Feminine wisdom, love and power with our Masculine strengths to create a better world for all. This requires an entirely new source code; a fundamental set of inner instructions for growth.
With your experience in the Mysterial Leadership Essentials Course or earlier Kore Evolution programs, you have awakened the archetypal gateways of this inner code for development and created the ripe conditions for your own transformation. The five archetypes - Mother, Hero, Father, Maiden and Crone - are now active in your unconscious and ready for the next level of shadow work that opens the channel for your Mysterial becoming.
As our Mysterial qualities come online we naturally become leaders in our world. We rest into a deep sense of sufficiency from which our empowered actions are ignited. We know that we belong here on planet earth, have a unique contribution to make, and feel the freedom to express our full creative genius. And we are ready to show up in our wholeness and speak our truth as we partner with the Mystery to unfold the future. This is simply who we are — in the office, with our children, as we create art, with our intimate partners, or as we simply interact with people in the grocery store.
And that is what is most needed in this time on our planet — the courage and commitment, resilience and grace to lead in an entirely new, embodied, integral, Mysterial way — a way that includes all of who you are.
My Invitation to You
I am inviting 18 women to join me in a unique opportunity for an intimate journey to unravel from the millennia old outdated and limiting embodied patterns and unleash our greatest potential. Many years ago I was given a vision of 144,000 women moving as One healing force on the planet. Today I see this as a Mysterial Murmuration - conscious, committed and courageous women with extraordinary leadership capacity as agents of positive shape shaping a world that works for all beings.
Members of this first field of my global online depth program will not only be engaged in their own transformative journey, but will also be contributing to the launch of a worldwide Mysterial Murmuration. I will be giving you my all for the six months of our time together and together we will be leading the way forward for others in the future.
There may also be some of you who are already certified coaches and could imagine becoming a certified Mysterial Coach in the future. If this is a path that feels resonant for you then you would be required to dive into the program itself as a participant. And you would then be among the first women ready to enter into the Mysterial Coach Certification Program.
About The Mysterial Leadership Depth Program
The Mysterial Leadership Depth Program is intended to prepare women to expand their leadership influence and impact in a rapidly evolving, massively globalizing environment by skillfully accessing all of their innate potential as women, benefiting themselves, others, their organizations and beyond.
It is designed to be a comprehensive, in-depth, groundbreaking, and future-sensing leadership development program based on how women actually grow. And therefore we begin with the most ancient patterns in our collective and personal unfolding - what I refer to as The Mother - Hero polarity.
The Mysterial Leadership Depth program is designed to work very deeply and specifically with unhooking from the unconscious limiting beliefs (personal and collective) that no longer serve you, or the world, and are a driving force of this first Yin-Yang polarity.
Combining academically sound, rigorous, research-based curriculum with the ageless wisdom traditions, arts, and the deep practice of an urban mystery school this program is:
Transformative/developmental. We use a groundbreaking pathway based on how women actually develop, that sequentially unlocks all of our Feminine and Masculine strengths. Our program not only offers leading-edge theories and new behavioral tools, it also enables a fundamental transformation of outdated patterns in the way a woman lives, loves and leads. It helps women to awaken to their full value and express that value freely and authentically.
Integral. Drawing upon the extensive work of Ken Wilber, Robert Kegan, Otto Scharmer, Susanne Cook-Greuter, and other leading theorists, our comprehensive approach integrates a diversity of systems, academic disciplines, and forms of knowledge—from the wisdom of ancient shamans and sages to today’s breakthroughs in neuroscience —into a handful of essential elements that are key to facilitating human development.
Accelerated. Although radical transformation doesn’t happen in a single weekend, or even a few weeks, it doesn’t need to take years. The Mysterial Sequence™ provides the most efficient, critical path through the essential work needed to open up unprecedented levels of leadership. Group coaching, a rigorously researched program curriculum, and the catalytic nature of a learning community combine together into an alchemical force. Our six month curriculum accelerates true transformation without sacrificing artistry, enjoyment, academic excellence, or deep connection.
Theory- and Research-Based. Combining stimulating theories from innovative thought leaders with our extensive experience and research in women’s growth and leadership development our rigorous, experiential curriculum qualified for over a decade as a university-certificate program.
Embodied. It is vital that women today build a dynamic relationship with the full spectrum of their being, so that they are able to embody and express their unique essence. We teach women to access ways of knowing that engage all three centers of intelligence—thinking (head), feeling (heart), and sensing (body)—so that they can bring a holistic understanding to complex issues.
Beautiful and Imaginative. We actively engage women’s sensing and feeling natures by designing our curriculum and processes to be beautiful, and inspiring. Using stimulating right-brain processes and practices, we invite imagination through powerful ritual processes designed to awaken women to their deepest feminine being.
This course is for you if you sense that you have a real contribution to make to this world and are ready to do the inner work required to liberate your passion and genius. You are ready to courageously show up as a leader in your own life, expressing and standing for your values, while maintaining a deeply grounded connection to your own center. You sense that being held in a supportive circle of women will give you the nourishment and encouragement you need to ignite your developmental journey. And you are ready for a path that is truly integral and awakens all of your Feminine and Masculine strengths.
What Is Possible For You in This Course
When the healthy Mother and the healthy Hero archetypes are both fully activated, an important transformation—a higher order synthesis of The Mother’s quality of Radiant Presence and the Hero’s quality of Empowered Action—naturally occurs within you. The meta-quality of Empowered Radiant Presence arises in your way of being and doing. This is the true fruit of inner initiation.
Able now to source your doing from the healthy ground of your being, your very presence uplifts those around you and encourages their best performance. You embody both the kindness of The Mother and the courage of The Hero. You inspire trust, respect, and cooperation simply by being who you really are. Others are attracted to the natural inner glow of a woman who acts purposefully in the world while deeply grounded in her own sufficiency.
How does this happen? The Mother and The Hero are not simply distinct transformative archetypes. They have a dynamic between them that forms a natural system. The Vessel Yin Mother and The Flame Yang Hero are, in their essence, polar opposites. When they come together a third synthesizing initiation takes place that leads to Empowered Radiant Presence.
Through our deep dive together you will:
Cultivate the solid ground of your Feminine Being with The Mother archetype as a powerful vessel that can hold the fire and intensity you must channel to sustainably bring your gifts into the world with the healthy Hero.
Excavate unconscious sabotaging beliefs that have held you hostage for a lifetime, replacing them with conscious beliefs that liberate your full potential for living, loving, and leading.
Cultivate the capacity for a differentiated and dynamic mutuality that enables ease, intimacy, co-creativity and skillfulness in your relationships.
Discover the Mysterial way of attuning to wider fields of collective intelligence to facilitate effective action, innovation, and positive influence.
Learn how to move through a four-phase creative process, allowing you to know when to act decisively and when to let factors ripen for the best possible outcome for all.
Become skilled in the Mysterial Change Process™ so that when you are triggered in stressful situations you are able to draw upon the three centers of your intelligence and transform reactivity into self-authored, creative action.
Establish a set of capacity-building leadership practices for body, heart, mind, and soul that become the stable infrastructure encouraging your development for the rest of your life.
Deepen your capacity to understand and shift perspectives so that you can your hold your own ground while being open to others and magnifying your ability to build strategic alliances and inspire others.
Learn to be fully present and flow in turbulent and unpredictable environments harnessing the creative potential of ambiguity and chaos to generate breakthrough results.
- Gain a profound sense of your own value and sufficiency, enabling you to be more confident, authentic and glowing with Empowered Radiant Presence.
The Transformative Container
The Mysterial Leadership Depth Program has been designed using a comprehensive approach to women’s development that we have spent the past 2 decades decoding. Engaging body, heart, mind, and soul our journey together will use evocative visual images, ritual, cutting edge research, powerful leadership practices, and our proven technology of transformation to activate your innate Mysterial Potential. Consider this less as a program you are leaving your life to attend and more as a powerful transformative container into which you will fully bring all domains of your experience.
Seven 2-Hour Live Video Whole Circle Sessions with Suzanne
These sessions will involve meditation, teaching, collective psycho-catalytic ritual and small group exploration together. The sessions will be recorded for those who cannot attend live, but it is highly recommended that you plan to schedule yourself to be present for these sessions as they will be important opportunities to accelerate your development in the collective field.
Once I have a sense of who is ready to commit to the program I will set the schedule dates and times and make every effort to accommodate the different time zones that are involved in our global cohort. What I do know is the course will begin on Wednesday, February 1, 2017 (2/2 in Australia) and end in July.
Six 90-Minute Cluster Coaching Sessions with Suzanne
Using the container of small Clusters of 5-7 women, Suzanne will focus these sessions on diving deeply into the psychodynamic work that allows for the deep shadow work to occur. The catalytic collective engine of the group will powerfully facilitate your personal growth and support your transformative personal practice. Cluster groups will be organized to align with timezone differences. These sessions will be scheduled once the groups are formed and will be approximately two weeks after the Whole Circle Sessions.
Alchemical Community – Catalyzing and Supporting Your Learning
Our cohort will have 18 students and together we will become a dynamic transformative community. You will have the opportunity to connect with allies in a collaborative, co-creative learning environment that accelerates growth and builds a web of friendships with other emerging Mysterials around the world. We will tend our collective ‘we space’ engine carefully as it is a powerful, catalytic element in the program.
Private Facebook Group
Our private FB group space will be an important element of your learning journey in between the live sessions. Through your own posting and that of the other participants you will be supported, encouraged and challenged to grow in ways that would not occur on your own.
Meeting bi-monthly at a minimum, the intimacy and accountability of these smaller learning partnerships will support you to dig deeper into the Fieldwork explorations of the program.
The intensive program curriculum works as much in between the class sessions as during them. It is within the field of your life that you will become an observer of your habitual patterns and engage in the practices that will liberate you from the conditioned responses that no longer serve you.
Mysterial Leadership Practices
You will establish a set of powerful practices for body, mind, heart and soul that will provide an essential and sustainable vessel for your transformative journey. They will become the template for the cultivation of a life long personal container for wellbeing.
Mysterial Coaching Assessments
Prior to and throughout the program you will be introduced to various instruments that will help you to understand more about your habitual ways of being that were created to give you love, safety and belonging when you were younger and that may no longer be serving you. (Enneagram, Integral Map, Mysterial Archetypal assessments, Self-Compassion, etc.)
Faculty Team Guiding Your Journey along with Suzanne
To support you through the trasnformative curriculum of the program, Mysterial Coaches will be working with Cluster groups to help women stay on track and moving through the Fieldwork processes. These are all women who are professional coaches, have been studying with Suzanne for several years, and have completed at least the Mysterial Leadership Depth Program. You will also be able to purchase at a reduced rate individualized one-to-one coaching sessions with our Mysterial Coaches if you would like more intensive holding during the program.
Alumnae Mentors will also provide support and act as a bridge between faculty and participants. These are women who have completed the Mysterial Leadership Depth Program and as a result of their own powerful experiences are now committed to assisting others in their Mysterial Initiation.

About Suzanne Anderson
Suzanne is a master of transformative learning, with a passion for awakening innate human potential. An early pioneer in the field of experiential learning she led the way in using the outdoors as a classroom for leadership development, and was the co-creator of a highly acclaimed worldwide women’s empowerment program in the 1990’s. She was the founder of an international consultancy and worked for 15 years with Fortune 100 corporate executives as a multilingual, senior management consultant, facilitator, speaker and leadership coach.
After decades of work as a senior leadership consultant she recognized the absence of leadership programs designed to address women’s development. And following a powerful experience of spiritual awakening while vacationing in Bali, Indonesia, she left her lucrative consulting work to find out what it meant to “midwife the re-emergence of the Deep Feminine on earth.” She began a thriving private coaching practice in Paris for professional women seeking to reclaim their Feminine nature.
Suzanne eventually moved to Seattle and in 2000 she founded her business and initiated her University certificate leadership programs to focus on awakening the deeper leadership potential inherent and yet mostly undeveloped in women.
Combining a depth of understanding from her graduate studies at Antioch University in women’s developmental psychology, together with her well-developed intuitive, artistic, and soulful sensibilities she has dedicated the last 15 years to decoding an embodied, integral and accelerated pathway to unlock women's innate potential to become Mysterial leaders who could positively shape our future. This multi-faceted, depth approach to her work rests on 30 years of study and practice in a grounded spiritual path that is a vital aspect of her life today.
She is the co-author, along with Dr. Susan Cannon, of a new published book, The Way of the Mysterial Woman: Upgrading How you live, Love and Lead.
Originally from Canada, Suzanne currently lives in the lush city of Seattle, enjoys art and music, loves to speak French and Italian, bike, swim and hike in beautiful places, and share meaningful conversations with dear friends over a well brewed pot of tea or a well aged wine.

Praise from Previous Depth Program Participants
I have experienced tremendous growth through this work with Suzanne – a deeper connection to myself including deeper self-compassion and self-nourishment; a deeper capacity to stay open to others WHILE staying connected to myself; a deeper capacity to act in clearer alignment with what is authentically mine to do. How I lead/live has changed. I can FEEL my own deeper ground and how that impacts the spaces that I hold in my work and life more broadly – there is more clarity, flow, connection and effectiveness. I am holding more complex and challenging projects, teams, and life circumstances with more and more ease.
As a result of my experience in the Kore Level 1 program I discovered that I had been neglecting parts of my life and self that I wasn't even aware needed tending. Through the practices I learned, interactions with the other women in my group, and the depth of the program, I began to address these parts. As a result, I now have access to deeper aspects of myself, sending me on a journey to bring richness to my life both personally and professionally. The Level 1 program also gave me the tools to deal with stressful situations and conflict in a much healthier and productive manner than I did before. Overall, I feel more optimistic and pen to what lies ahead!
Suzanne and her Mysterial way .... introduced me to self-compassion in ways I've never known. I have learned to understand my habitual patterns and created new neural pathways for loving and supporting myself. Her unique blend of knowledge, wisdom and intuition is what makes the experience with Suzanne so special. I was able to show up in any condition and be held with all love and zero judgment as she gently guided me to a new way of being. Because of Suzanne's teachings I have come home to myself and this translates into more love for my family and friends. I understand why I made old decisions and now lead with new, loving choices that resonate from my heart. I am forever changed from Suzanne's counsel and eternally grateful to have the tools to live a more conscious life.
