“No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.” Einstein
Empowered Radiant Presence Initiation
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.
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 this is exactly 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.
Get on the Waitlist and be the first to know when the Fall 2019 Depth Program is announced.
What Graduates Are Saying...
My Invitation to You
I am inviting 12 women to join me in a unique opportunity for an intimate journey to unravel from the millennia old outdated and limiting embodied patterns and unleash our greatest potential.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 change positively shaping a world that works for all beings.
Members of this field of my global online Depth Program will not only be engaged in their own transformative journey, but will also be participating in a worldwide Mysterial Murmuration. I will be giving you my all during our time together.
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 women ready to enter into the Mysterial Coach Certification Program.
"This experience was transformative and gave me the opportunity to awaken a hidden part of myself. I can now embrace my life more peacefully, with fluidity and aliveness. Suzanne and her mindful cohort of coaches has supported my emergence with love, wisdom and a deep presence. I have shared my vulnerability with other genuine women around the world and always felt respected, safe and heard. The Way of the Mysterial Women is for me a powerful path to self-exploration in a sustainable and embodied manner. Today I feel more congruent with my essence, I am more and more able to speak my truth and welcome discomfort with curiosity."
About The Mysterial Leadership Depth Program
Our global online nine month Depth Program is intended to prepare women to expand their leadership influence and impact. It is a comprehensive, in-depth, and rigorously researched group coaching program.
Recognizing that many leadership programs are based on masculine models, we created Women’s Mysterial Leadership programs to address the unique ways that women develop as leaders. By focusing on how women learn and grow and what’s really necessary to lead effectively in today’s turbulent environments, we designed programs that unlock a woman’s capacity to nourish her body, heart, mind, and soul—while generating tangible, meaningful results.
The Mysterial Leadership Depth Program prepares 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 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.
"I've done a lot of introspective work, and the Mysterial Leadership Depth program has been the most effective at allowing me to get to know and appreciate my natural way of being, seeing behaviors and beliefs that don't serve me, and inspiring rapid transformation."
— Elizabeth Friesen
More 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.
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.
"The Mysterial Leadership Depth program was a major shift in building my capacity to live, love and lead. Having dusted through the cobwebs of my internal structure, I now feel clear and enabled to cope with the important decisions ahead of me, and with gusto! Suzanne Anderson is exemplary in her teachings and excellent facilitation. She is an absolute inspiration for anyone wanting to learn how to embody deep feminine wisdom."
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 as a powerful vessel that can hold the fire and intensity to sustainably bring your gifts into the world.
Excavate unconscious sabotaging beliefs that have held you hostage for a lifetime, and replace them with conscious beliefs that liberate your full potential.
Cultivate the capacities that enable ease, intimacy, and skillful creativity in your relationships.
Learn to differentiate when to act decisively and when to let factors ripen for the best possible outcome for all.
Become skilled in transforming reactivity into self-authored, creative action.
Establish a set of capacity-building leadership practices as the stable infrastructure encouraging your development for the rest of your life.
Deepen your capacity to build strategic alliances and inspire others.
Learn to harness the creative potential of ambiguity and 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.
"I became very aware of my desire to create a more connected life. I can feel a clear embodied presence during the kata and my statements, and these soul-shaping exercises continue to open my Mysterial Self...my concrete, subtle, causal self walking into the world."
What is included
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.
Nine 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.
Six 90-Minute Cluster Coaching Sessions with Mysterial Coaches
Using the container of small Clusters of 6 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.
Three 1-1 Coaching Sessions with a Mysterial Coach
You will have a trained Mysterial Coach as your guide throughout the deep dive of our program to encourage and support your Mysterial emergence. Your coach will help to hold you accountable for the changes you want to make and in 3 focused coaching sessions will assist you to dive under the surface of your conscious awareness and explore the deeper unconscious sabotaging patterns that are blocking the flow of your authentic genius.
Alchemical Community – Catalyzing and Supporting Your Learning
Our cohort will have 12 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 Facebook group 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.)
"I have had a profound shift in my life because of this course, and am interacting in the world from a completely different perspective. Learning to slow down enough to be in my body and watch where my thoughts and energy go have completely transformed the way I relate to myself and others, and the people closest to me are noticing! This has been a life-changing experience."
The Mysterial Faculty Team Guiding Your Journey
To support you through the transformative curriculum of the program trained Mysterial Coaches will be working with participants 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.
