7 Reasons To Attend Mindvalley U This Summer

Want to learn life-enhancing skills that school forgot to teach you? Skills like learning how to live an extraordinary happy, healthy, and fulfilled life? Then Mindvalley U is the experience you might be looking for.

Mindvalley U is a month-long transformational event where you’ll join an inspiring tribe of people who are seeking to really make a difference in the world.

Last year, the first edition took place in Barcelona. New connections were made, friendships and partnerships were formed, ideas were exchanged, and personal growth living legends shared their gifts.

And from June 28 to July 22, Mindvalley U lands in Tallinn, Estonia. We listed some of the top reasons why you, too, should join us this year. Here are 7 reasons to attend:

1. A Rotating Campus

Why restrict college to a single campus for 4 years? There are so many amazing cities to explore on this gorgeous planet.

Mindvalley U moves to a different world-class city every year so our students get to learn and grow from new cultures and experiences. And in this year, 2018, that unique city is Tallinn, Estonia. This incredible medieval city is known for being the city with the highest number of startups per capita and one of the most cutting-edge tech hubs on the planet.

2. A One-Month Calendar, Every Year

Mindvalley U is a one-month-a-year experience that our members come back to for the rest of their lives – if they want to. And why would you want to stop learning or say goodbye to the beautiful friendships from college?

Because we’ve reinvented college so that it only happens one month a year, you can take part of it while still holding a job or working on your own business. And each year, you can come back each year to reconnect and grow further. Take a look at the calendar here if you want to know more about the amazing events that we have planned.

3. A Curated Community

A well-structured on-the-ground social network ensures your day is filled with the chance to connect, mastermind, and socialize. Apart from the learning program, you’ll be able to go on trips, have adventures, and experience amazing parties together.

The greatest thing people often say they got out of college was the friendships they found. Mindvalley U is designed to expand your social connections like no other experience on Earth.

4. Completely Family-Friendly

Mindvalley U is a transformational event for all generations. Every year, we bring together people of all ages, from 6 to 80. Young people can learn from elders and vice versa, and entire families learn together.

We’ve designed seperate programs for kids (6-12) and teens to deepen their understanding of the world, using approaches based on conscious parenting and emotional intelligence theory. And in the evenings, the entire family can meet up and share what they’ve learned over dinner in one of the amazing restaurants in Tallinn.

5. Huge Value For Money

We’ve brought down the cost of Mindvalley U to no more than a fraction of a regular American college. We do this by removing the fixed campus and stripping away all inefficiencies — from grading to tuition fees to funding research labs.

Because it only happens one month a year, you’re able to go out into the real world for the other 11 months, applying what you’ve learned at Mindvalley U to building your own business or your daily habits. This also means that you’re not racking up crippling student debt.

5. An Upgraded Curriculum

Want to learn engineering or physics? Great! Today you can learn that online for free on MIT.edu or EdX.com.

Mindvalley U is not here for these type of skills – but for the ones our regular education system ignored. Like entrepreneurship, leadership, public speaking, personal growth, health and wellness, happiness, love, parenting, mindfulness, and so much more. Skills that truly lead to happier lives and not to outdated societal brules of “success.”

6. Incredible Living Legends As Your Teachers

Universities might have the greatest researchers in the world, but not necessarily the greatest or most inspiring teachers. So where do you find those? We find them on the TED stage, writing best-selling books, or building extraordinary companies. And these people are the teachers we bring to Mindvalley U.

This year’s schedule includes Jim Kwik, Ben Greenfield, Wim Hof, Shefali Tsabary, Jon & Missy Butcher, Eric Edmeades, and many, many more. Check out the full schedule here and apply before it’s too late.
