What if it were possible to live, love, and work from a space beyond fear, regardless of what’s going on in the world around us?
What if fear isn’t a response to what’s happening in the world but rather a response to what’s happening inside your mind?
What would you do with your one and only precious life if you weren’t afraid?
For many years, my life was a study in how much one person could do in the face of constant, sometimes painfully crippling fear.
While I don’t know when I first starting fearing life, other people, and the psychological boogeymen that seemed to lurk in the dusty recesses of my mind, I know that by the time I was a teenager I lived in a fairly constant state of “heightened autonomic arousal” – aka ongoing stress punctuated by moments of mild (and sometimes not so mild) terror.
The exhaustive nature of living fearfully led to depression, suicidal ideation, and a resolve to find a way to be at the very least more courageous and at best, to be able to live fearlessly.
(If you’re curious, I distinguish “courage” as the ability to move forward in the face of fear and “fearless” as moving forward without fear. While courage can be tremedously helpful, I can now say from personal experience that fearless is an even better option.)
Whether we call it “the space before fear”, “your true nature”, or even just “being yourself”, I have learned that it is not only possible to live our lives from a place of profound wellbeing regardless of our circumstances, it’s an essential part of our divine architecture.
One more thing:
It’s important to know that letting go of fear works a bit differently (in my experience) to adding new strategies to our toolkit for life. Since fearful thoughts are often woven into the fabric of our personal reality, it’s difficult to imagine how different life can really become when those thoughts stop appearing real and that fear-based reality begins to unravel. While I get that might sound scary :-), please know over the six months of our time together, I will be with you throughout the process along with the rest of the mastermind group, holding each other’s hand when the going gets tough and delivering warm, compassionate kicks up the a** when it’s time to get going!
“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”
“The title and the topic is what initially tugged on my soul to enroll. In every meeting I felt an expansion of my Being. Sometimes like a drip, I’d see from a slightly new perspective. And one or two, Holy Cows, I never expected to see and feel that!
The Mastermind was all I had hoped for and more. But the more, the icing on the “transformative” cake, was the other Masterminder’s.
This wasn’t my first rodeo! In the other masterminds I participated in, I did meet super nice people. But in this mastermind, even though I had no idea who the other participants in the group would be, I knew with certainty, that I could trust Michael’s selection process. And that the others would also be like me, they answered the tugs on their souls to join the program.
With Michael setting the example, my cohorts immediately created a safe space for me to be myself and to explore. Their vulnerable sharing touched my heart and I saw myself. Yeah, we really are all ONE.
- If you feel even a little soul tug, Just Do It.
- It would be impossible to for you not be transformed and impacted
- YOUR cohort will be exactly the mix of the right people for you.”

Here’s how it all works:
We will begin our time together in January with a 5 day online immersion retreat, awakening and amplifying this energy within us and beginning to explore what it really means to be ourselves. You’ll find yourself getting back in touch with your most heartfelt desires and relaxing in to each moment as though it were the only thing there is.
Early on each month, from January to June, we’ll reconnect in depth. We’ll take a day out to pull back, refresh, reground and if needed rebound from the drama and adventures of our daily lives. Then later in each month, we’ll meet up for 90 minutes to touch base, ask and answer questions, and share our “wins and wows”.
I will also meet with you three times individually – once when you are accepted into the group, and then twice more over the course of our time together so you can personalize your experience, tune in more deeply to the space within, and get coaching and support with your biggest challenges and most and fondest dreams for the future!

“Michael is your go-to-person when you want to figure out how life works. Because he helps you figure out that there is actually nothing to figure out.
This is a big thing, when you are, like me, conditioned and trained that ‘life is hard’ and when you learned that the only way to get some peace of mind is by long hours of yoga, breathing techniques and mindfulness.
It sounds so cliché, to say that seeing Michael’s insights and the way he keeps explaining it in all these lovely ways has changed my life. But it’s true. Not that I only see rainbows and unicorns now. I still get stuck in traffic jams, I still hurt my little toe when I run into the couch (man, that hurts) and I still feel sad and blue from time to time. But since I realized that all those experiences are created by my own thinking, and that I have a huge impact on their impact, I feel lighter, safer and yes: happier.”
