I am, of course, playing with words. But that is the proper business of a philosopher who is also a poet, for the task and delight of poetry is to say what cannot be said, to eff the ineffable, and to unscrew the inscrutable.

-Alan Watts

In The Inside-Out Revolution, I share the following story:

Imagine that a man comes to you for coaching. He’s about to turn 20 and he’s decided that it’s time to ‘grow up’ and take over the family carpentry business. He wants you to share innovative marketing techniques, work with him on how to make better personnel decisions, and coach him to incorporate technology to bring the business into ‘at least the new millennium.’

But even as you’re speaking together, something’s bothering you about the conversation. He’s saying all the right things and seems willing to do all the right things, and yet something still feels out of alignment. Following your intuition, you ugo back and review the client intake form he filled out when he first came to you, and to your surprise you see that his name is Jesus and he’s from a small town in the Galilean region of Israel called Nazareth.

Here’s the question:

Do you really want to work with him on becoming more successful in his carpentry business?

What if every man, woman, and child you meet has the seeds within them to become who they truly are?

What if that includes you?

Beyond Coaching: Having conversations that change lives is a five day immersion into the inside-out understanding. It’s a spiritual conversation about the nature of the human experience. Above all, it’s a chance for you to not only go deeper in your own experience of the deeper dimensions of life, but to learn to “eff the ineffable” and articulate the invisible in your own uniquely perfect way.

Topics covered will include:

  • Taking conversations “upstream” towards the source of experience
  • Finding the balance between the spiritual and the material in every conversation
  • Putting form to the formless truth of spirit and words the deeper music of life
  • Getting out of your own way and letting your true self take the lead

“I have been searching for the space before words for 30 years of my life. This space is peaceful, sweet, beautiful, and comes with a nourishing feeling. It is expansive and still. There is nothing and everything here. It is home. People often call this place “spirit” or “God”, and before working with Michael Neill I would touch this place for a nanosecond and then desperately try to find my way back.

My time with Michael has helped to wake me up to and deepen my awareness of this place inside me. It has allowed me to rest in and live more of my life from this space regardless of context – at home with family, at work with clients – anywhere and everywhere I go. Best of all, I can easily find my way back when it seems as though I’ve lost my way. If you get the chance to study with Michael, I highly recommend you take it so you can sit back, relax, and experience this space more and more for yourself while impacting the people around you through presence, love, compassion, and a deeper understanding of who and what we really are at core.”

Friday 31st May – Tuesday 4th June 2024

Tuition: $995

Upcoming 5 day immersive events

1. You, Unleashed
February 5th – 9th, Los Angeles, CA and Livestream

Have you ever wondered what would really be possible if you could get (and stay) out of your own way?  What if you could live your life unleashed?

For over 30 years, I’ve been working as a personal and executive coach, helping people from all walks of life get more out of themselves and their lives. I’ve worked with entrepreneurs, CEO’s, writers, musicians, directors, producers, people at the top of the financial world and people who have devoted their lives to sharing the wealth of the planet.

What they all have in common is something you have as well – a connection to a deeper part of the mind that allows an incredible creative potential to come forward and express in everything you do.

When you are in touch with that part of yourself, you are amazing – wise, powerful, filled with love and creatively engaged with life. You have a twinkle in your eye, compassion in your heart, and a sense of expansive possibility in your mind.

Over these five days, you’ll get out of your head and into your life; out of your psychology and into a world of possibility!

2. Coaching from the Inside-Out 2024
April 22-27, Austin, TX and livestreaming (limited places)

Albert Einstein shared his philosophy for both science and life in the words “Everything should be made as simple as possible – but not simpler.”

Twice before in my career, I have done my best to summarize the best of everything I’ve learned as a coach in intensive events called “Coaching from the Inside-Out”. In 2024, for the first time in a decade, I will be synthesizing nearly 35 years of client work into this five day immersive training.

Whether you are an experienced coach, a 3 Principles practitioner, or simply someone who would like to be able to incorporate the transformative coaching mindset and skillset into your life and work, this is the most efficient way I’ve found to give people the most impact in the smallest amount of time possible.

3. Beyond Coaching: Having conversations that change lives
May 31  June 4th, London, UK and livestreaming

The mystic Alan Watts spoke of the task and delight of learning to “to say what cannot be said, to eff the ineffable, and to unscrew the inscrutable.” Over these five days, we will be both having and learning to facilitate a transformative conversation that makes the invisible world of spirit glimpsable to all and actually presences the spiritual dimension of life.

There are no pre-requisites to this program other than a genuine curiosity (and ideally, a palpable thirst) for an experience of life beyond the form.

“A modern day Alan Watts – Michael Neill does the brilliant job of using intelligence, humor, and heart to blend the sacred with the profane and gently reveal the deeper spiritual nature of everyday life.

Mike Dooley

NYT bestselling-author and creator of “Notes from the Universe”

“I can’t recommend Michael Neill high enough. Being with him and immersing myself in his courses, at the very least, is more than a breath of fresh air; it’s a strong wind that uplifts the Soul. The material Michael puts out is addictive in a positive and healthy way. I just keep coming back for more. It never disappoints. There is always some new insight or understanding that in turn influences how I live my life with more ease and with a greater freedom to create myself in new and delightfully unexpected ways. Thank you Michael for shining a light on a whole new way of Being!”
