Are you a coach, therapist, leader, manager, or trainer who’d like to make more of an impact with your clients, customers, or staff?

Would you like to be more of a “difference maker” with friends, family, or in the world?

If this is you, I am delighted to announce the first ever Genius Catalyst Intensive program beginning live and live-streaming from New York City in September, London in November, and Los Angeles in February of 2023. Each of the four catalyst intensives will be led by me, and will include multiple opportunities to learn how lasting change actually happens, watch me work with others in real time, and put your own understanding to the test as we go.

If you have ever wanted to be able to make a real and tangible difference in the lives of others regardless of whether or not you want to make your living as a helping professional, I’ve created this program with you in mind.

What is a Catalyst?

The dictionary definition of a catalyst is “an agent that provokes or speeds significant change or action”.  During our six months together, you’ll learn to act as a catalyst to people’s innate genius, wisdom, and creativity, so they can bring their best self to any problem, challenge, or project. 

 

Here’s a quick video where I talk about what it means to be a catalyst within your profession, whether you are a coach, manager, therapist, leader, or any other type of helping professional:

Here’s a bit more about what’s on offer..

THE PERSONAL CATALYST INTENSIVE

Live and live-streaming in New York City
September 16th – 18th

The sociologist Joseph Campbell famously said:
People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonance within our innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive.”

 

We’ll begin our time together with the spotlight firmly on ourselves – our own ability to harmonize our life experiences with our innermost being and actually “feel the rapture of being alive”. This is both important in its own right and the key to our ability to impact and awaken others .
Here’s just some of what we’ll be exploring:
  • The principles behind the inside-out understanding – where people’s experience of life really comes from (and why recognizing that fact really matters)
  • Bringing your genius to life – the amazing capacity of the mind for insight, creativity, and guidance
  • The power of insight, wonder, and the world of deeper feeling
  • How to reliably spark your own felt sense of aliveness, experience personal breakthroughs, and create lasting change

What our students have to say about training with Michael

The Genius Catalyst program will help you unleash your brilliance and achieve greater impact in your conversations, relationships and business. Exploring the “source code” behind the human experience has effortlessly deepened my explorations with clients. When clients experience being tapped into their brilliance vs. habitual thinking spirals, they naturally show up at their best.

In the first Immersive in New York, I experienced the visceral difference between being lost in thought and being tapped into a flow of wisdom. Seeing the truth of who we are, how our mind works and how life works – naturally unlocks our human potential. Being a catalyst is an impact game changer both at work and at home! Thanks Michael and Team.”

THE SPIRITUAL CATALYST INTENSIVE

Live and live-streaming in London, UK
November 4th – 6th 

The physicist David Bohm wrote:

“The field of the finite is all that we can see, hear, touch, remember, and describe. This field is basically that which is manifest, or tangible. The essential quality of the infinite, by contrast, is its subtlety, its intangibility. This quality is conveyed in the word spirit, whose root meaning is “wind, or breath.” This suggests an invisible but pervasive energy, to which the manifest world of the finite responds. This energy, or spirit, infuses all living beings, and without it any organism must fall apart into its constituent elements. That which is truly alive in the living being is this energy of spirit, and this is never born and never dies.”

At the heart of this exploration is one simple truth: there is no substitute for being fully present with another human being. During the Spiritual Catalyst Intensive, we’ll work together to be able to recognize the spark of spirit in others and make use of some basic tools to fan the flames of presence and aliveness in their lives.

Over the course of our time together, we’ll be exploring:

  • Deep listening, connection, and trust
  • Transformative presence – having more of an impact by being more of who you really are
  • How relationship and context make impact more or less likely to occur
  • Working in the space where humanity and divinity collide

    What our students have to say about training with Michael

    “Somehow Michael and his team managed to create a tremendously insightful, impactful and engaging experience online. While the in-person attendees had great conversations in the room, we all had a ball online too, sharing experiences and giving up the love for the contributions we were all making as participants. Michael’s impact is not lessened online and I came away both impacted and with some excellent insights to use in my client work, which have already increased my impact in my sessions with them.”

    THE CLIENT CATALYST INTENSIVE

    Live-streaming only
    December 2nd – 4th 

    The early 20th century motivational teacher William Arthur Ward said:

    “The mediocre teacher tells.
    The good teacher explains.
    The superior teacher demonstrates.
    The great teacher inspires.”

    Over the course of these three live-streaming days, you’ll get the chance to watch me work with a brand-new client in my office, following along from our first meeting to the conclusion of our one on one intensive. In between our sessions, you’ll get the chance to ask me questions and put what you’re learning into action as you spark one another in small group sessions.

     

    Here’s a link to the “moment of truth” on the very first filmed client intensive I ever shared. As you watch, see if you can spot the moment the clouds of thinking parted and the spark of aliveness began coming through…

    Prior to meeting Michael, I’d only believed changes could be made incrementally. They’d have to be specific to one area at a time and placed on a self-created timetable to most accurately measure the quality of the change. Michael’s ability to connect and his understanding of the human experience as a coach was unparalleled to anything I’d ever seen before. It was as if he knew exactly where to point or that he knew precisely which thread to pull to unravel the wisdom, resilience, creativity and peace he knew existed inside me. Simply put, Michael didn’t just change my life: he transformed it. Words could never convey my appreciation adequately. For that transformation, I am deeply humbled and grateful.

    What our students have to say about training with Michael

    “I did the first (New York) intensive online and was totally blown away by the experience. If I had any doubts as to whether doing it online would be as impactful as being there in person, those doubts are gone forever. Michael has a way of making everybody feel like they are there…all you need to do is show up. The discussion was literally Earth shattering for me, a big HFMOG moment, multiple other insights and a real shift in my reality. I’m so excited to experience what is to come in the remaining intensives over the coming months, and to see how my life shifts as a result, as no doubt it has already started to do.”

    The Reverend Howard Thurman, a student of Gandhi and teacher of Martin Luther King, once wrote:
    “Don’t ask what the world needs – ask what makes you come alive and go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”

     

    In a world of ever-increasing volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity (VUCA), the ability to be a safe port in a storm is worth its weight in gold. Once you can reliably help people wake up to the deepest and best they have inside them, the next job is to help them navigate their world with more ease and grace. As we come together for one final time in February, we’ll be playing with real-world applications of this understanding and approach, including:  

       

      • Being a business catalyst– what it takes to move a business from surviving to thriving, including your own
      • Being a creativity catalyst – unleashing innovation and creative solutions “on demand”
      • Being a health catalyst – sparking the body’s innate drive towards health and optimizing conditions for healing
      • Being a relationship catalyst – uncovering and nurturing the spark of love and understanding in the relationships that matter most

      He takes you to the heights and the depths of what is beautiful and true in a way that is engagingly human, real, fun, and yes… greatly transformative. It’s quite the package. I highly recommend hopping onto the Michael Neill train. It’s an amazing ride that will serve you for a lifetime in extraordinary ways.

      FAQ

      All your questions – answered :-)

      Where are the intensives being held?

      New York: 101 Greenwich Street // Downtown, New York

      London: 50-52 Chancery Lane, London WC2A 1HL

       We will confirm the LA venue and send all the final details by mid-September.  

      What are the timings for the intensives?

      The live intensive will run from 10am-5pm local time.  Please note that if you are joining via live stream, this might mean a very late or very early start time ;-) 

      HOW DOES THE "PRIORITY IN PERSON PLACE" WORK FOR THE CATALYST TRACK?

      When you book on The Catalyst Track you will be presented with the options for participation on each intensive: Priority In Person or Live Stream. Once you’ve chosen your preferred options, in person places will be given out for each live event as available one month in advance and in order of your date of enrollment. The sooner you book, the more likely you will be able to attend each intensive in person!

      What is the cancellation/refund policy?

      If you need to cancel for any reason up to 30 days before the start date, you will receive a full refund.  If you need to cancel for any reason after that, you will receive a credit for the full amount paid to be used for other trainings and programs at any time in the future.

      Will everything be recorded?

      Yes!  You will have lifetime access to the streaming video and audio for all the intensives.  The audio from the masterclass and small group practicum will also be available for streaming or download by all registered participants in the relevant track.

      In my first 4 day intensive, it didn’t take long for me to see that the magic is not in the learning but rather in the ‘unlearning’. The fun part of it is that there really was nothing to DO to make that happen.

      This program is packed with small group exercises that allow for insight to come naturally and Michael creates a safe space to ask questions and has a way of deepening the understanding even more in the way he’s answering them. After finishing the program, I feel really comfortable putting myself out there as a transformative professional and somehow clients have magically been showing up.

      This truly was a life changing experience that I strongly recommend.

      Annelies Geraets

      Even though I decided not to continue with my coaching practice for the moment, this course was and will be (when watching it again) a very insightful, loving, and inspiring conversation. It is especially cool to meet and be with other people on a similar journey (to mastery) and at the same time listen to Michael’s wisdom and experience. I/we are so good in overcomplicating things while Michael kept pointing us back to a simple “3-step plan”:

      1. Show Up
      2. Be Yourself
      3. See What Happens

      In the end the answer will probably always be simpler than we think. So if you want to feel (more) confident and playful going forwards working with others, I would highly recommend you to go on this journey with Michael and the others!
