The Ascent

8 Week Online Transformational Adventure

Cultivate a Lifestyle of Freedom and Meaning

The world's first creative digital skills & inner transformation hybrid bootcamp.

Calling all renegade explorers and creative dreamers...

You've found this page for reason.

Living a life that is TRUE to yourself in this crazy, chaotic world is hard.

Really hard.

When you were younger it was easier to listen to your own voice.

But now time moves faster. The days are slipping through your fingers.

You wake up dreading the 9-to-5 grind ahead.

The empowering voice of your youth slowly transforms into an inner critic.

Your mind questions "Will you ever bet on yourself and pursue your true calling?"

Stressed that you know deep down you’re not realizing your potential.

You've meditated, done breathwork, and read inspiring texts.

But you still crave PROFOUND change.

A deeper calling.

You see online entrepreneurs, digital nomads, and independent creators who seem to have cracked the code to building a lifestyle of greater freedom...

But you have no clue where to start to build that for yourself.

Or you're struggling to make it work.

And you're worried that time is running out.

It hasn't.

But there is a reason that you feel that way.

The #1 deathbed regret is...

“I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.”

Many people get lost in the noise of daily life, go through motions, and one distant day they realize they surrendered their true calling to keep others happy.

The hollow advice ringing in their ears...

"Get practical." "Be realistic." "Take the safe path."

They lost their sense of direction and couldn't find clarity on what to do next.

And they die with their gifts still inside.

But that's not you.

That's not your path.

Because some part of you is awake to what's at stake.

You know you have something important to offer the world....

But you have to find your way through...

The Wicked Paradox Of Our Times

We are living in an era of...


INFINITE POSSIBILITY paired with ENDLESS DISTRACTION

On one hand, you have access to all world's knowledge at your literal fingertips...

But that isn't just a blessing.


The curse is that's easier than ever to be overwhelmed with options.

Trying to figure out the best next step can feel paralyzing.

Once the motivation is lost you can easily slip into binge-watching that new show or mindlessly scrolling through social media.

But there is the itch in the back of your mind...

"You could be doing something more."


You’ve probably thought about starting some creative endeavor but never really followed through…

For some it's making videos. For others it's writing.

You want to kickstart that passion project.

And all the information is out there.




I could give you a clear step-by-step path
but that wouldn’t make a difference...


Why?

Because the plan would be competing against all kinds of internal obstacles.

Before you even get started a lightning bolt of self doubt zaps your mind "Will I even be able to do this?"

That keeps a lot of people from even taking the first step which can be a huge blow to confidence because you didn't even give it a shot.

But if you're lucky enough to ACTUALLY get started then it won't be long until analysis paralysis sets in. Some of the simplest questions become massive barriers to making progress.

"What should I name my project?" And then you shuffle through a million and one options but never get anything done.

After a while, we get fatigued and then jump to another shiny object thinking that the problem was the project and not our approach.


This is a very difficult cycle to get stuck in especially considering that most people don't have supportive environments to uplift and empower them.

So many feel like no one around actually GETS them and see they have a bigger vision for their life.

And when that's the case it can lock us inside the confines of what people expect.

(Remember the #1 deathbed regret from before?)

With the endless rivers of information always available to distract us...

How do you truly take advantage of the explosive opportunity?

How do you seize your true calling while swimming in so much noise?


You need BOTH a clear roadmap AND the transformational tools to break past the internal obstacles holding you back….

Introducing:

The Ascent

 Sep 21 -  Nov 21

An online transformational retreat combined with a digital skills bootcamp to unleash your gifts, align with your unique path.

You’ll dive inward, build profound relationships, and work on epic projects while breaking negative patterns that hold you back.

An 8-week journey with a small tight-knit group of renegade explorers and bold creators.

Guided by expert mentorship to equip you with the skills, strategies, relationships, and resolve to cultivate a lifestyle of freedom and meaning.

This is not a cookie-cutter action plan or another online course (which often will not work).



It's a deep growth process in which you'll BECOME the person you need to be in order to:

  • Find purposeful work so you can wake up feeling excited for the day ahead.
  • Wrestle your inner critic into submission so you can feel confident in the face of failure.
  • Express your unique gifts so you can experience creative fulfillment
  • Overcome analysis paralysis so you can start taking massive action.
  • Connect to an uplifting tribe that understands, inspires, and supports you.
  • Remove distractions and reclaim your time so you can focus on the things that matter.
  • Create aligned wealth so you can unlock the freedom to experience more of what the world has to offer.

A transformative odyssey into opening the floodgates of possibility in your life.

Olympic athletes have an entire training staff to help them achieve peak athletic performance. 


What if you had something similar to help you achieve your peak potential?


Just imagine if at the snap of your fingers you'd gain an epic set of skills, ignite a wildfire of momentum, and seize the golden opportunities hiding in plain sight.

This is The Ascent.

It's not for everyone.

It’s for people who know they have a deeper calling.

Sure you might not have complete clarity.

But you have a gut feeling that your gifts are important and that you have a meaningful contribution to make in this life.

If that sounds like you, keep scrolling…

Portals and Principles:

Unique Paths
Traveled Together

Portals and Principles:

Unique Paths, Traveled Together

Many programs that offer you change want to give you a step-by-step formula that gives you results.

This kind of approach can be very profitable for marketers but it's not really how life works.

We call this "The Path of Copy and Paste" where you try to accomplish what someone else has by mimicking them.

There's a problem with that.

People often leave out key details of their success story that seem insignificant but were actually absolutely vital. Not to mention...

You're not them. You're YOU.

You have a unique set of gifts to offer and an entirely different set of circumstances to work with.

The Path of Portals and Principles is the alternative.

Rather than trying to become a carbon copy, you embody time-tested principles to express your gifts and move in the direction of your unique path.

While applying these principles you keep your eyes open for what we call "portals."

These are quantum leap moments where your growth accelerates and you find yourself much further along than you planned.

Joseph Campbell said it best...

"Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors where there were only walls."

These doors can lead to meaningful work, life-changing friendships, travel opportunities, and so much more.

This is not some pie-in-the-sky theory.


We've established 5 Central Pillars we'll use to facilitate rapid growth grounded in scientific evidence and boots-on-the-ground experience.

The 5
Central Pillars

The 5 Central Pillars:

The 5 Central Pillars

Environmental Disruption

Radical change is possible but doesn’t often happen. Why? Because our environment often reinforces bad habits and negative thought patterns that keep us stuck.

The Ascent creates a digital disruption to your environment by plugging you into an empowering support network invested in your growth.

Like an Olympic training camp but for your personal transformation. You’ll access mentorship opportunities, immersive workshops, transformational techniques, and more.

Project-Based Immersion

This isn't a "sit and listen" style series of lectures where you get exposed to concepts without learning to ACTUALLY apply them.


This is a hands-on experience where you'll take precise action.

You'll build real practical skills for growing your social circles, increasing your income streams, and finding creative fulfillment.

Pivotal Choice Points

Everyone can make small decisions that cascade into major life transformations.

Many people can’t see these choices because habitual modes of thinking keep them from venturing outside of their cognitive comfort zone.


You’ll see examples of unconventional paths that you can follow and scrap the mental scripts that are keeping you from trying something new.

You'll also identify the pivotal choices that you could make within your unique set of circumstances.

Scientific Learning Strategies

Many online programs end up having a small effect or no effect at all.


That’s because the lessons aren’t deeply encoded into memory and people forget everything they’ve learned in a few months.


We’ve embedded scientific learning strategies into the DNA of this program so you’ll retain and benefit from the knowledge you acquire long after it has ended.

Real World Playbooks

You’ll learn from people who have made the courageous leap into the unknown to live aligned lifestyles. These aren’t hypotheticals.


You’ll learn from their mistakes, benefit from their insights, and use this wisdom to radically alter the trajectory of your life.

What people have said about HighExistence experiences



Mayry

Writer, Kundalini Teacher

I feel absolutely blessed, enchanted, and transformed…


It will blow your ever-loving mind, heart, spirit and soul wide open!


You will see and experience incredible things that you will never be able to forget!


Honor your highest self and GO!!!

Frank

The experience itself blew my mind. The whole thing was designed to obliterate defenses I’d built up over the years.

This allowed me to express long repressed feelings. I cried, I laughed, I spoke my mind and it felt nourishing.

I am in a better mood now and walk more confidently about the world.


My relationships with people back home have improved.

I have met and stayed in contact with the coolest and loveliest people. I had so many deep and fascinating conversations.

  • "I'm considering a radical shift in your career path, a transition to flexible remote work, the start of a lucrative side hustle, or the launch of a passion project I can eventually monetize."

The Ascent really showed me that I can do stuff.

Before I started, I had a feeling inside of me that something was wanting to come through. I had a website, but I continuously struggled to work out what the next best step was.


It can be quite overwhelming with the millions of different possible routes one can take at every step in the entrepreneurial adventure. When I heard the guys talking about it on the first podcast, I knew I had to do it. So, I forked out the cash and did it.


Many breakthroughs happened during the 8 weeks, but the most important was a regaining of the sense that I was able to know what needs to be done next and that I can always get that thing done as long as I show up to it. They basically reminded me how to read my compass and walk confidently in the direction it is pointing me in.


Of course there are many practical tips and secretes that were learned along the way, but the greatest gift that the Ascent gave me was the destruction of multiple unconscious blockages that were clogging up the momentum of not only my project, but my life.


Learning how to navigate and ultimately overcome the voice in your head that tells you ‘you can’t do this for X and Y reason’, when your soul is telling you ‘DO THIS’, is the single most important skill you can cultivate as a creative/entrepreneur, in my opinion. And that’s exactly what happened for me over the course of those 8 weeks.

How Much Does It Cost?


HighExistence is a global community with wisdom seekers joining our ranks from vastly different economic realities.


For those who are truly a good fit for this program, we’re committed to identifying a financial arrangement that works for everyone involved.


If you pass our application screening, we’ll arrange a conversation to explore your unique situation and discover what tuition payment makes sense given your circumstances.


Please note:
Due to the immersive, high-touch nature of the program, the cost will not be inexpensive but it’s also not out of reach.

The entire program will cause you to stretch out of your comfort zone and for some it starts with making the decision to truly invest in themselves.


Don’t let a mindset of financial scarcity exclude you from taking the first step.

FAQ: 

Here you can find the most frequent asked questions.

When does it start?

The kick-off date for the Ascent is September 21st but you’ll get access to some powerful preparation exercises as soon as you finish your enrollment. They will help you gain clarity, confidence, and excitement for the road ahead.

What if I can’t make it to a session?

We’ll record every session so you can catch up on what you missed. There are over 20 workshops scheduled outside of the core mastermind sessions. We don’t expect everyone to attend every workshop but rather attend those that are most relevant and exciting. By the end you’ll have access to a huge library of workshop recordings to harness exactly when you need them.

What is the time commitment?

90 minutes for the weekly mastermind. You can pick and choose which workshops you want to attend and can always tune into the recordings.


The amount of time you invest can expand or contract based on the amount of time you have but we encourage people to invest at least 1 hour per day into the program because the consistent expenditure of energy overtime is essential for building momentum towards your unique path.


You can join with a very fully schedule and find yourself using your time more efficiently as a consequence.

For the things that matter most, we make time. If it’s important for you to wildly re-imagine your current trajectory so you can live a life that’s true to yourself then apply now.

"Am I ready for this?"

The answer is no. That's because we're never fully ready. We learn and grow as we move through the process.


Waiting to be ready is a common form of self-sabotage that keeps people stagnant. It's a subtle form of self-doubt disqualifying you before you even get to the starting line.


The important thing is it's okay and completely natural to feel like you're not ready. But waiting for the feeling of readiness to come is a sure way to keep yourself stuck.


Don't let the inner critic win.


You got this. Take the first step and apply now.
