Self-Unfoldment

for Executives

As an executive, you see the big picture as well as its moving parts. what lens are you looking through?

There is a growing body of literature in the field of consciousness studies suggesting the popular lens our world culture teaches us to look through is merely one of many lenses. The literature suggests that what we understand as “me” and “mine” is far more than a feeling produced by the brain; it’s a gateway to recognizing a deeper, more meaningful, more insightful, and more powerful identity that forms the bedrock of who and what you are.

Why does this matter for me as an executive?
  1. Your consciousness informs every intuition, thought, feeling, and perception you have, as well as every action you take. Few recognize how deep the vault of consciousness runs. Recognizing this vault giving rise to your cognitive process shifts your sense of identity, meaning, purpose, how you perceive the world, and your ability to be still and comprehensively assess whatever comes your way. The information and practices we explore are the same ones described in ancient wisdom traditions and the same ones I have used for over a decade while diagnosing and managing life-threatening emergencies in the ER and unexpected life-shaking events at home.
     

  2. As an executive, you set the tone for your team, organization, and perhaps even an entire industry. What you recognize matters, because it sets the standard others play by. That standard and your organization should be informed by the broadest and deepest vision possible.
     

  3. The frontiers of consciousness are, quite simply, the leading edge of the leading edge. There is no topic, no subject, no exploration more cutting-edge than this for the intrepid explorer.
     

  4. Most importantly, you are a human being first and a professional second (or third, or fourth). Each one of us has the need for safety, understanding, love, acceptance, meaning, and self-realization, even though this often goes unacknowledged in our world culture. Compartmentalization can be an effective tactic for a period of time, but sooner or later the crossroads of integration command the attention of every human being. Integration means reconciling the varied aspects of our personalities and identity. It heals.

 

"People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills… There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his [or her] own mind… So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself."
Marcus Aurelius
How does Self-Unfoldment for Executives work?

This is a six-month one-on-one program with Anoop Kumar for executives who wish to develop a greater degree of self-awareness, clarity, and grounding in life that will serve them in and beyond their executive roles. The program is completed remotely with regular communication via email, phone, and video chat, with a primary focus on deep introspection.

This is different from most executive coaching programs in that our primary goal is for you to develop a deeper vision and experience of who you are and how you see the world. The deeper skillset of recognizing and managing the nature of the mind is what we work on through a variety of tactics. Through this process, you will realize deeper layers of yourself that ultimately will inform your vision and actions in all areas of life. You will be de-compartmentalized. This is Self-Unfoldment.

 

The Self-Unfoldment for Executives program includes 6 modules, one per month:

  1. Orientation

  2. The Resting Mind

  3. The Awakening Mind

  4. The Clear Mind

  5. The Dynamic Mind

  6. The Free Mind

 

Each module includes introspective and lifestyle practices that will customized for you based on the nature of your mind. Program details will differ as each mind is unique.

At the end of six months, you will

  • notice a greater level of self-awareness

  • have insights into the stories and compartments you create

  • be able to choose which stories serve you best in which situations

  • have a greater understanding of the relationship between your identity, mind, consciousness, and body, as well as how these interface with the world you perceive

  • have insights into the relationships you are in

  • have a new set of skills with which to manage the mind

  • recognize love, connection, and meaning within yourself

  • know when and how to use thinking and feeling

  • have the ability to continue progressing on your own

 

 

Does self-unfoldment work?

 

Consciousness studies and self-awareness practices, which have been around in some form for millennia, have now been found to be relevant in every major area of our society, including

  • science (neuroscience, transpersonal psychology, microdosing and pharmacology, quantum physics)

  • healthcare (mind-body medicine, integrative medicine)

  • leadership (self-awareness, quantum leadership)

  • sports (peak performance training)

 

Self-awareness is now also being taught in schools so the next generation of leaders will be well-versed in its basic principles. Our hope is that upon recognizing the benefits of Self-Unfoldment, executives will bring these practices to their organizations and spheres of influence.

"Aim at the highest, and you shall reach the highest."
