Mindvalley, the world’s leading online personal growth company is laser-focused on transforming the education system for all ages. In 2019 alone, Mindvalley attracted more than half-a-million students who took a Mindvalley course online. Over 12 million people from 195 countries worldwide follow Mindvalley’s
programmes and social content on a daily basis for life-changing tips and advice. The ultimate goal for them is not in obtaining an educational degree, but in achieving a better version of themselves whilst doing good for the world and the human race.
With schools closed throughout the world, more than half-a-billion children are at home as we continue to live in uncertainty amidst the novel Coronavirus pandemic. Mindvalley is here to offer on a global scale it’s teen-tailored online programme and it’s absolutely free, beginning 29th April. This will certainly be attractive to education institutions, which are now turning to e-learning largely for unique ways to engage and guide students in today’s unpredictable climate. The 10-day free programme, known as “Be Extraordinary
for Teens”, will take teenagers on a deep dive journey to find their life purpose. During the course, they will explore meditation, goal setting and life planning, and learn how to develop self esteem and a deep connection with their life purpose. The programme provides mentorship and guidance for them to achieve their goals and ‘be their best’, even at a young age in both their personal and academic lives.
Malaysian-born Vishen Lakhiani founded Mindvalley with a vision to elevate human consciousness through personal growth education. Over the years, Mindvalley has built a global reputation as one of the most innovative companies in the field of transformational education, teaching millions of people the skills that were forgotten in the conventional education system. In 2016, the ‘Quest’ learning platform was created to shift the way we consume information and learn. The secret lies in micro-learning, behavioural design and community.
“Our current education model only tackles two of the 12 different dimensions of being human — schools don’t teach us how to live a happy and healthy life, love and believe in ourselves, or how to become a good contributing member of the human race. Instead, our education system is still centred around the concept of ‘survival’. If you want to raise extraordinary kids, you don’t raise them for survival anymore; you raise them to be the people who understand what it means to live an extraordinary life,” says Mindvalley Founder, VIshen Lakhiani.
“At Mindvalley, we don’t focus on what regular schools teach, We focus on what regular schools have forgotten. This is called transformational education and we are thrilled to launch this online so that all teens across the world can start now and truly become the future leader they want to be”, added Lakhiani
Along with the launch of its free programme online for teens, Mindvalley is also deeply focusing on expanding it’s teen programmes by partnering with schools all over the world, with a vision of helping students shape their mindsets at a younger age, and to ultimately become more independent thinkers. The Mindvalley for Schools curriculum is specially designed for teenagers and students, and all ‘Quests’ are linked to special skills that teenagers may develop in and out of the classroom.
This new type of learning is unlike conventional education, which is often more textbook-focused. Mindvalley programmes guide students on how to use their brains more effectively, improving memory retention, learning the power of their voice and speaking their truth, all whilst making important career and life decisions to guide them in achieving more in their academic and personal lives.
Mindvalley recently conducted a successful pilot programme with 40 students from Taylor’s International School (“TIS”) in Kuala Lumpur, which has now opened the door to a year-long partnership between Mindvalley and TIS. The partnership sees 300 students from Years 10 and 11 partaking in a customised version of Mindvalley’s popular Superbrain Quest. This is an accelerated learning curriculum designed to activate the brain’s limitless potential, and will be taught alongside their conventional curriculum in order to create powerful memory retention, unshakeable focus and increased productivity.
One student from Taylor’s International School, Kuala Lumpur, said in regards to the programme that they are “truly happy with the results. It is unlike the conventional school’s curriculum and has helped to broaden our thinking and perspective in life. What an amazing experience! A breath of fresh air from our normal academic experience. I certainly believe that I can be a better version of myself and make my dreams come true.”
In 2018, Mindvalley tapped into the Finnish education system, known to have the best education system in the world. The Mindvalley for Schools team worked with 47 schools and hundreds of students to bring them Mindvalley’s Superbrain and Speak & Inspire Quest programmes. Furthermore, Mindvalley has successfully integrated with other educational institutions across the world, including Dynamite Studios in Australia and Thompson Rivers University in Canada. Current expansion plans include Maldives, Mexico, the United Arab Emirates and the United States in 2020/2021.
