Think of the best teacher you ever had. Someone who taught you a lesson that stuck with you.
They were most likely not researchers. They were probably not lecturers either. They didn’t just pick up their knowledge by flipping the pages. They were people who are out in the world doing epic stuff and creating an impact.
And then bringing their personal experience back to you.
These are the people we were looking for when we decided to reinvent education and give it a twist.
We asked Miriam Gubovičová, our Director of Events Programming at Mindvalley to bring the most brilliant minds together from all walks of life and ask them to share this wisdom with our tribe.
Scientists. Serial entrepreneurs. Artists. And a monk who trains Hollywood stars.
This is what Miriam said when we asked her about this year’s line-up:
These are the people you want to hang out with. And in fact, they want to hang out with you too after the sessions because they love people who are passionate about their growth.
The skills you need in today’s world are not about recalling the names of tectonic plates or doing a long division.
It’s about building your personal brand and mastering the art of vlogging. It’s about discovering your purpose and learning how to form meaningful connections in your network. It’s about biohacking your own body to double your lifespan and learning how to raise extraordinary children.
All in one month in the “e-city of Europe”: Tallinn, Estonia.
Here are some of the most aspiring speakers you’ll meet this summer at Mindvalley U, introduced by Miriam Gubovičová.
1. Jim Kwik On Unleashing Your Inner Genius
One of the most popular teachers of the Mindvalley community is Jim Kwik, who will train you to have an incredible memory and learn anything in half the time.
After all, how would we expect ourselves to grow if we don’t know how to learn?
Jim went from being called the “boy with a broken brain” in school to one of the top coaches on brain performance in the world. Today he’s teaching the top Hollywood stars on memorizing their scripts.
2. Dr. Shefali Tsabary On Conscious Parenting
When Miriam called up Shefali Tsabary for the first time, she was a little nervous. After all, she has a Phd, she appeared on Oprah, and she’s a sought-after keynote speaker and coach with clients all over the world.
But when Dr. Shefali picked up the phone and said “Hi sweetheart!”, all of that formality melted away. She was just so… real.
Shefali didn’t just learn the developmental stages of children from psychology books — she has studied the challenges modern age kids face by visiting their homes and understanding their family dynamics.
At Mindvalley U, she will share how you can infuse personal growth into your parenting and raise extraordinary children.
3. Wim Hof On Becoming A Superhuman
Wim Hof aka “The Iceman” is the kind of person you would never forget. He is an extreme athlete and he holds 26 Guinness World Records.
During his adventures, he ran a full marathon in the Namibian desert without water and he hung on just one finger at an altitude of 2,000 metres. (Just a tip, don’t play never-have-I-ever with him.)
At Mindvalley U, he’s going to train our bravest participants on The Wim Hof Method, including a special breathing technique, ice therapy, and conditioning your mind to meet challenges with courage.
The Ice bath was a hit at our last A-Fest and we’re bringing it back this time at Mindvalley U.
4. Nassim Haramein On The Bridge Between Science And Spirituality
Nassim is a legendary physicist-mystic.
He has spent over 30 years researching and discovering connections in mathematics, cosmology, quantum mechanics, biology, chemistry, as well as anthropology and ancient civilizations.
In short, he’s a genius.
And yet, if you sit down with him at the dinner table, he will patiently explain to you complex theories of science without making you feel any smaller.
“He’s so welcoming and down-to-earth. The most open person I’ve ever met.” said Miriam. At Mindvalley U, he will talk about how science and spirituality are on the same side, proving that we are all one.
5. Vishen Lakhiani On Silva UltraMind & Culture Hacking
Vishen, the founder of Mindvalley and the bestselling author of The Code of the Extraordinary Mind is well-known our community for his talks on consciousness and new models or reality.
But this time, he will teach something that he has never done before in the Mindvalley tribe.
He will give two full days of training on The Silva Mind Method. It is a way to access altered states of consciousness, tap into your intuition, and access heightened levels of creativity.
Once you train your mind to use it, you can basically manifest anything. And it’s all rooted in science.
6. Ben Greenfield On Health & Longevity
Ben is an athlete, nutritionist, biohacker, speaker, New York Times Bestselling author, and a coach on longevity. Or as they say, “The Brain” of triathlon.
He embodies what he teaches even when he’s cooking a healthy dinner with his family or when he’s out in the world teaching people on how to train their bodies.
To give you an idea, this is how Vishen introduced him on his Facebook page:
Love the fact that Ben can’t sit still and will be doing yoga, squats or in this case, dangling upside down during a perfectly serious business meeting. It’s like meeting with Batman.
Learn his secrets and live long.
7. Gelong Thubten On Mindfulness In The Modern World
Gelong Thubten was a movie actor turned Buddhist monk who then went on coaching Hollywood stars on meditation and mindfulness.
Including the crew of the Marvel hit, Dr. Strange.
Gelong is not your ordinary monk. He’s not sitting in a cave mumbling mantras and he’s not vegetarian either. But when he starts teaching, the room goes quiet… and something interesting happens.
His lovely English accent is not the only reason you would just want to listen to him over and over again. As Miriam said:
I had the most amazing conversation with him last time at Mindvalley U. I was so tired after the event, I just wanted to go to sleep but he gave me so much energy, he really opened my mind about things.
8. Marisa Peer On How To Be Your Own Coach
Marisa Peer has proven multiple times that the human mind has no limitations. During her 33 years of experience as a coach and hypnotherapist, she has been the cause of many miracles.
She cured people of cancer, she helped women with infertility have babies, and she empowered people with clinical depression to develop striking confidence.
“I understand the rules of the mind.” she said in an interview given to Mindvalley. And so she can teach you how to train your brain to do absolutely anything you desire.
Join her session at Mindvalley U and become your own coach.
