Built on the Shoulders of Giants

Steeped in 200 years of thinkers, artists, and leaders with crucial insight into this moment of history and evolution, the WorldMaker curriculum is built on the shoulders of giants.

From a revolutionary theory of knowledge to the evolution of consciousness, from inner work to nonviolent communication to social sculpture and social threefolding, our work draws from the minds and precedents of some of the most important cultural leaders in recent history. We are continuing the lineages of Black Mountain College, the Bauhaus, Joseph Beuys' Free International University (FIU), Marina Abramovic, MC Richards, & luminary civic leaders such as Martin Luther King, Antanus Mockus, & Edi Rama.

The WorldMaker Program lays out a revolutionary path toward a future in which we can all participate. Built co-creatively with our students and their feedback, needs, and goals in mind, the curriculum is rigorous, thorough, and constantly improving.

What is it?

The WorldMaker program is a 9 module online & interactive program with videos, downloads, exercises, live Q&A calls, and personal coaching and mentoring. It shows you how to grow your creativity and leadership in revolutionary ways. You can do it in as little as 9 weeks or take as long as 9 months.

Who is it for?

This is for leaders and visionaries who have experienced their personal limits. They find conventional wisdom and guidance insufficient and need a way to systematically transform their limitations and become highly skilled, highly creative, and highly impactful.

How do I participate?

You receive your own account and can log in to the course platform any time. From there, you can access all course materials, videos, downloads, get help, register for the Q&A calls, participate in the online community, and request one-on-one coaching and project consultation.

How does it work?

You watch the videos, read the materials, and do all the step by step exercises. Questions? Ask in the community platform, attend the live Q&A calls, or contact us directly. Follow the steps, do the exercises, and get results.

When does it start?

You get access to the online course as soon as you enroll. You can complete the course in your own time, or take the accelerated path by running one module per week. You are a member for life, and get membership benefits such as access to workshops, events, and participation in projects.

Why does it exist?

We noticed that no one had figured out how to build the core human capabilities needed to actually create new realities and solutions to the toughest institutional and social challenges. It's the missing piece, from which everything else can flow. We cracked the code.

The WorldMaker Curriculum

A logical and systematic progression

A well-organized structure makes learning enjoyable, systematic, reliable, and fun. WorldMaker is designed to begin with essentials and build on those foundations. Everything later builds on earlier layers so that you get the "full stack," from inner work to massive change.

Structure of course as rings

The Path: From Self to World

I. Starting the journey (module 1)

First things first: getting ready, planting the seed, charting the course. This is the kernel.

II. Work on self (modules 2, 3)

We begin with forging the instrument that is you. Everything you think and do comes from within — so we start here to make you fit for purpose for your next stage in life, work, and service.

III. Become a creative force (module 4)

The higher self in motion becomes a truly unstoppable creative force. Learn how creation works in nature, art, and social practice, and develop your own creative practices and superpowers.

IV. Working with others (modules 5, 6, 7)

Working in groups of two or more brings out both the best and worst of everyone. In these modules we master communication, teamwork, leadership, and social health — not just in theory, but in practice and for real.

V. Organizations & societies (modules 8, 9)

Mature leadership often means helping organizations, institutions, communities, or even societies. These modules focus on creating meaningful change at larger scales.

The WorldMaker Program

WorldMaker is the online foundational curriculum that includes videos, PDFs, 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, beginning summer of 2020 with a social sculpture project of a caravan through the Balkan region to highlight the cultural contributions of that area, plus a workshop in France. Meeting in person deepens friendships, and provides critical learning and assimilation. We are committed to the offline engagement of the school.

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 get on the phone to help you move forward as needed. One-on-one coaching or project consultation is available to you via the online portal anytime.

We also run weekly group coaching calls where you can connect with others' questions and stories, learn from their experiences, and meet new students and their initiatives.

"Through my work with Magenta I was able to explore my own aspiration and abilities, and how that did or did not line up with my work. I also learned several practices with which I am beginning to come out of the cerebral and into the lived experience of my challenge. I return often to the work we did together to help re-situate myself, and always find new layers of insight. "

“We partnered with Magenta to co-lead our development program for senior executives in one of Australia’s largest companies. The Magenta team played a highly significant role in curriculum development and overall leadership of the program.  We were enormously pleased with the quality of Magenta’s contribution to the project.  Magenta understands both the big picture as well as the nuts and bolts for successful inner leadership development.  Highly recommended."
