Mind Valley Academy - One mind at a time.

I am very excited to share this with you.

Firstly, I am sharing this because technology inspires me with hope for our future and secondly because Vishen's vision for the future is completely aligned with all my beliefs and my own vision for humanity.

Our world and societies will change and shift when more people have access to wisdom and the potential to become happy. Happy people do not kill each other, happy people do not bomb each other. 

I stand by Vishen when he says that we must empower people.

All this works in perfect harmony with my teacher Daisaku Ikeda the president of the Buddhist organisation I am a member of the Sokka Gakkai International (See sgi.org for more information) of whom I have immense gratitude, for he is the one who gave me the opportunity to practice this Buddhism, as well as be a part of this great movement of people. Without him, it would have never reached my country.

The Sokka Gakkai is a movement of peace, education and culture, for the betterment and happiness of all of humanity.

MindValley's platform is an exciting beginning for something incredible. I really cant wait to see what Vishen creates.

He has created him self a very bold and brave vision, but as they say fortune favours the brave and I am 10 000% behind him.

Have a look at his organisation, and how they are planning to fill the gap in education, in helping people find real happiness and fulfilment.

Mind Valley Team

Introducing Mind Valley

We’re an international group of 100+ individuals from 30+ countries led by Founder & CEO Vishen Lakhiani, doing our part to change the world.

From outdated societal beliefs and education models that hold people back to restrictive work cultures that hinder creativity and innovation–we at Mindvalley are ambitiously, ridiculously, and irreverently determined to help change all of that to help explode our full human potential and move the planet forward.

While many look at global problems like brain drain and broken educational systems and focus their time and energy fixing the problem, we take a different approach.

How? By embodying the philosophy of the great scientist and awesome futurist, Buckminster Fuller who once said: “You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”

And that’s exactly what we’re doing. Building new better models that make today’s problematic models obsolete, and at the heart of our approach is “culture hacking.

What is Culture Hacking?

cul·ture [kuhl-cher] noun, verb,

The quality in a person or society that arises from a concern for what is regarded as excellent in arts, letters, manners, scholarly pursuits, etc.

A particular form or stage of civilization, as that of a certain nation or period: Greek culture.
Development or improvement of the mind by education or training.
The behaviors and beliefs characteristic of a particular social, ethnic, or age group: the youth culture; the drug culture.

hack, verb
To cut to the core. To dismantle systems apart. To rebuild. To recode.
Thus, “culture hacking” is the art of bringing in technology and education in smart effective ways to rapidly “recode” and advance culture, altering in the process the behaviors of everyday individuals to make them adopt smarter practices that elevate their lives.
And so far, the results have been phenomenal.

Making the world a better place by touching 1 billion lives by 2050.
