What is Mysterial Leadership?
Healing the Traumas of the past for Leadership in the Present
As a Mysterial Woman, your leadership manifests in the smallest, most mundane activities in your life, as well as in the most profound and consequential actions you take. It is about how you get up in the morning and do what needs to be done, even through personal fears and anxieties that would have you go in an opposite direction. It’s about making wise decisions in the press of your professional responsibilities and the ambiguities of conflicting information.
The Mysterial Sequence™ is our proven map of women’s leadership development that brings us step-by-step through the fundamental archetypes that make up human consciousness, integrating the parts of ourselves that have been left out or stalled. Women are guided to heal the earlier traumas – personal, transgenerational, and collective – that keep them from living, loving, and leading in a way that is in alignment with their deepest desires.
You may have experienced leadership trainings that focus on the Masculine strengths like empowerment, confidence, and authority, or trainings that target the Feminine strengths like collaboration, connection, and sharing. The problem is that when the Masculine or Feminine strengths are developed in isolation, the path is slow-going and unsustainable. You may have powerful insights and then find yourself slipping back into an old way of being. In our research, we discovered that Feminine and Masculine essences arise in polarities and get healthier and stronger when developed together, which also keeps them in alignment with the developmental order that women actually grow through.
The Mysterial Sequence is a pathway that is accelerated, integral, and embodied, and unlocks all of the Feminine and Masculine essences in balance.
The Mysterial Sequence™ pathway provides the most efficient, critical path through the essential work needed to open up unprecedented levels of wisdom, love and power in our leadership.
Our Programs combine academically sound, rigorous, research-based curriculum with the ageless wisdom traditions, somatic embodiment, and the deep practices of an urban mystery school. The programs are ideally intended to be done in sequence to fully awaken the archetypal gateways of the inner code for development and creatively ripen the conditions for your own transformation.
The Way of the Mysterial Woman
Upgrading How You Live, Love and Lead
The Way of the Mysterial Woman: Upgrading How You Live, Love and Lead presents a foundational understanding of the cellular code and sequence of experiences that, if followed in order, delivers a woman to a place of wisdom, love, and power beyond any prior accomplishments in business or service or personal life. This transformational pathway is rooted in the co-authors collective years of graduate studies, coaching, research, and leading cohorts of intelligent and soulful women.
The book maps what could be called a rite of passage for women who are ready to evolve and lead by drawing upon the love of being from the well of the Feminine combined with that of the creative action of the Masculine in ways that are both powerful in the world and nourishing in their personal lives.

Suzanne is offering the Mysterial Resilience Essentials course and, if you feel like you need to hit the re-set button, no matter where you are in the world, this is a great place to start. It was life-affirming and gave me some new tools to help me deal with both my work in the world and relationships.
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.
Working with Suzanne was the most effective and deep work that I have ever done. My soul was withering, and I was weary. For the first time in my life, I feel more at ease in knowing what my strengths are and what is mine to do in the world. Suzanne gave me the support, resources and tools, empathy and encouragement that I needed to change my old ways of thinking and be my best self out in the world.
We need to redefine leadership so that women can recognize themselves inside a new model that is not just about position or power over. Leaders are those who respond to the call to be fully and authentically themselves, and show up vulnerably and courageously to make a creative contribution… no matter what.– Suzanne Anderson
Wisdom & Knowing
The Mysterial Woman draws upon all her ways of knowing – body, mind, heart, and soul. She allows things to manifest in natural and unpredictable ways so that creative solutions can arise that are vastly more complex than anything that could have been invented through a predictable process. She is open to the mystery of life and welcomes uncertainty, ambiguity, and change as necessary aspects of any creative endeavor.
Between World Views
The Mysterial Woman is able to bridge between the old worldview in which the majority of the world exists and the new worldview that she is here to bring. She is a kind of shape-shifter who can be in the world, but not of it. When you engage this quality of consciousness and courageously show up in the world, you are able to embrace a wide range of differences while maintaining a grounded connection to your own unique experience.
Development as a Way of Life
The Mysterial Woman knows that she is a “work in progress” and accepts failures and feedback as part of her ongoing learning adventure. Mysterial does not mean a fixed way of being or behaving. The capacities that arise when our Mysterial nature is unlocked are constantly expanding and growing to meet the needs of the moment.
Constancy in Authenticity
As present and genuine at a boardroom table as she is with the bus driver on her morning commute, she knows the power of a dynamic collective and takes the time and effort to tend to the energetic field of any group she is in. She is willing to be vulnerable and open in a quality of dynamic mutuality with others that naturally creates a trusting environment where everyone brings their best selves forward.
It is not a mistake that we are here now at this time on the planet. We are midwifing the next level of our potentiality as women and co-creating a new world.
Power With Versus Power Over
The Mysterial Woman understands the current world pattern of “power over” and how to navigate through it, and yet is committed to a life of “power with and for” others. She knows that true wisdom is not something she can glean only with her rational mind, but rather is something that emerges when she is open at all levels—body, mind, heart and soul—so she can be fully present to all that streams through her.
Stillness & Action
The Mysterial Woman knows how to pace herself and others as she engages in her well-lived life. She values “being” as much as she does “doing,” stillness as much as action. She tunes herself to coherence, order, harmony, and beauty while recognizing and embracing the incomplete, chaotic, conflicted, and ugly dimensions of reality.
Relating to Mother Earth
The Mysterial Woman recognizes her relationship with Mother Earth, not just as a resource for her to use, but also as a dynamic partner with whom we are on this co-creative evolutionary journey. She tenderly cares for her and all her creatures just as she counts on her for the food, air, water, earth, and fire that she needs.
All of these next-level capacities are seeking to come online now as an evolutionary response to the complex challenges of today. Our programs are designed to accelerate the lived experience of this new way of being and doing. There is nothing more inspiring or more urgent than leaders who include the very best of the Masculine ways of thinking and moving through the world with the Deep Feminine – grounded and alchemical wisdom, love, and power.
Because truly, nothing less than our future is at stake.
