Personal Development for Good

Magenta breaks down the nuts and bolts of personal transformation to make them concrete and clear so you can build new superpowers in service to your life’s work.

Get step by step processes to overcome your obstacles, strengthen your gifts and potentials, and learn to create what you want to see in your life and in the world.

Where self-improvement meets life purpose

Magenta helps you build a life of service and fulfillment and create an outsized positive impact in the world.

We help serious but unfulfilled seekers

A lot of people want to realize their potential — but when it comes to personal development, 99% of them make it up as they go. They run in circles, jumping from gurus to neuroscience to thought leaders. They see personal transformation as a haphazard combination of following rules and guesswork.

Become capable and creative powerhouses

A few of these people become forces of destiny in the world. They learn how to transform their personal obstacles into perception and understanding, and how creation works so they can actually create new realities. You won’t find them chasing gurus; you'll find them calm in the face of conflict, guiding others through difficult work, and creating renewed culture and world.

In the old days, someone who could transform themselves into an instrument of healing and renewal was called a "mage," as in magi or magician — a very wise person.

Train for your life's work

Magenta offers a bootcamp-style training in consciousness, creativity, and personal development. We use a blend of phenomenology (learning from phenomena), creative know-how (how creation works), and real-world application (in your life and work). You learn how to heal and transform both yourself and the world around you.

To the Mage, the goal of inner development is to be a lighthouse for others. They bring their creative gifts, leadership, and presence of mind to every new situation, helping guide the way out of conflict and into co-creative flow.

We teach from the Source

Most programs ask you to adopt methods, apply frameworks, or use abstract strategies. To be capable, wise, and creative in any situation, however, you need new sense organs, core know-how, and flexible capabilities. We teach these as five interconnected competencies.

1. Reality Shift — Worldview shift, evolution of consciousness, purpose, identity, inner as real

2. Mapping the Higher Self — Creative consciousness, presence, morality & freedom, perceiving Source, imagination vs fantasy

3. Creation — How you actually bring to life a new reality, for yourself or others, in any context or scale

4. Social Wholeness — Resilience, relationships, teamwork, social health, process

5. Reality as Practice — Momentum, participation, flow, holistic reality

Teaching From Experience Since 1996

We've worked all over the world, and have distilled all of our teaching from real world experience over almost 25 years.

The WorldMaker Program

WorldMaker is the online foundational curriculum that includes videos, transcripts, exercises, practices, and templates. This program comprises the underpinning, the map, and the step-by-step training ground of the School.

Community of practice

We’re building a community of international students who are on a mission to serve people and planet. Our community is the practice ground for co-creation. We learn how to participate, practice, and grow a fellowship of support, creative action, partnership, teamwork, and collaboration.

About-2-1

In-person events

We hold regular events in the United States and Europe, starting up again in the summer of 2022 with a "social sculpture" project in the Balkan region and a workshop at a French chalet. Meeting in person deepens friendships, and provides critical learning and assimilation, so we're equally committed to offline and in-person engagement.

Coaching and consultation

Even the best curriculum can’t anticipate all your specific needs or questions — we are committed to helping you integrate what you learn into your unique situation and project goals. We run weekly community calls where you can connect with others' questions and stories, learn from their experiences, and meet new students and their initiatives. We're always available to support you.

“I can't say enough about how much Magenta helped my company bring our vision to life. With their help we built the company culture that we've always dreamed of. Their approach is a perfect balance of conceptual understanding of humans and teams coupled with practical tools, systems, and resources. They've helped me grow as a leader by leaps and bounds and I feel more confident and at ease in my role of CEO because of them. I highly recommend leveraging their wealth of knowledge to grow your self or your team in ways that you probably don't even know are possible.”

— Rachel Hazlett, CEO, Lucky 420s
