“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.”

-Rev. Howard Thurman

What if the only thing between you and a life beyond your wildest dreams was a simple misunderstanding?

What if you were never more than one thought away from a whole new experience of being alive?

If you’ve ever felt like you’re sleepwalking through life, going through the motions even though you kind of have abandoned hope that anything significant will really change for the better in your life or in the world, this program is for you.

It won’t “help you reach all your goals in just fifteen minutes a day from the comfort of your own home”, get your in-laws (or partners or colleagues or “frenemies”) to magically change their personalities, or make it so that you will never feel unhappy ever again.

But what it can do is even better…

It will wake you up to the simple power of being yourself and the playful wonder of a life well lived.

As one of my own teachers, the Scottish mystic Syd Banks once said: 

“We have the most wonderful job in the world. We find people in various stages of sleep. And then we get to tap them on the shoulder and be with them as they wake up to the full magnificence of life.”

It might seem like bad news to realize that changing things in the world inevitably takes time and attention, and the challenges of daily living probably aren’t planning on giving up clamoring for your time and attention any time soon. But the good news is that having a completely different experience of the world is never more than a single heartbeat away. (No, really.)

The experience of life you’ve always dreamed of having is available to you RIGHT WHERE YOU ARE SITTING NOW without anything in the world having to change first.

Don’t get me wrong – I’m all for changing your world for the better. In over 30 years of working as a professional catalyst, coach, and creative spark plug for high performers in almost every arena of life, I’ve thrilled alongside my clients as they’ve built and sold companies, climbed to the top of their professions, and made a fantastic living for themselves by making a tangible positive difference in the lives of others.

But what they were inevitably most happy about was that they didn’t have to burn themselves out, alienate the people they care about, or make themselves miserable along the way.

That kind of “effortless success” is the fruit of a different way of being in the world, one that starts with a different understanding of who and what human beings are and how life and the mind really work. I call this the inside-out understanding, and it’s the foundation of our five days together.

When you see that regardless of what you’ve been through up until now and done (or not done) with your one and only precious life, your capacity for creativity, aliveness, and a profound sense of wellbeing is undiminished, you’ll also start to sense that things can be easier than you think, simpler than you can imagine, and every bit as much fun as you’d hope creating a life you love is meant to be.

Simply put:

You’re amazing.

This program will help you live that way!

Here are some of the things you’re likely to see and experience during our five immersive and experiential days together:

  • There is nothing wrong with you, and how the idea that there is has stopped you from noticing how amazing you actually are
  • Fear and worry are actually optional, and can help you find your way home until you’re ready to let them go completely
  • Genius is infinite, and once realized will help you to thrive in every area of your life, leading to loving relationships, happy families, healthy bodies, and true and lasting happiness and contentment

If you’re ready to grab your mojo and go for one heck of a ride, I encourage you to join me!

“When you are who you are meant to be, you will set the world on fire.”

-Catherine of Siena

What our students have to say about training with Michael

“If you have any interest in living your life with a whole lot more vision, possibility, fearlessness, ease and joy, Michael is your man. One of the wonderful things about connecting with Michael is that he is always himself in that what you get with the genius is of course, his particular expression of it which is filled with humor, humility, and great storytelling. 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.”

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.

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.

Rob Cook

You smashed it! Team Genius Catalyst, this was an amazing experience – creativity, surprise, humour, love, inspiration, connection, learning and more! Thank you Michael for your wonderful role modelling of aliveness. I feel it and experience you teaching from that space. Thank you for showing us what is possible. I walked away with feeling much lighter and raring to create in the world. Can’t wait for the next one!

Michael Neill’s training program is exquisite. I had originally been interested in the course to be able to help my existing clients more fully and with more depth.

I found myself changing and transforming as my depth of understanding in the inside out way of living and being grew. My practice members began having new insights into their lives and became empowered themselves. I also started seeing profound physical changes in them as they found new insights into life.

About halfway through the course, I realized that I’d fallen in love with the art of transformation itself. And I’d fallen in love with the possibilities for my business in exploring this new art form.

My passion for what I am creating in the world is invigorated and enlivened. Also as a nice side effect that seemed to happen all by itself, this past year was my highest ever year for both gross and net income in 22 years of practice. :)

More deeply help others, rekindle passion and make more money!

Dr. Sara O'Neill

“I did the 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.”
