Week 1 – About Mountains and Trust

I am thrilled to start my 4th MKMMA session with 500 people all around the world enjoying the experience! Indeed, most people who have gone through the MKMMA at least once say that their life has changed forever. That said, I just realized they rarely share IN WHAT their life has changed (besides the fact that they say they are happier, which, I concede, is the most important whatsoever) and HOW it happened. And what about those who « failed », why couldn’t they complete the six months training? One key reason is that they all lacked one vital element. Trust. Not necessarily trust in themselves, as starting the MKMMA Hero’s Journey (that’s really what it is!) is rather intimidating and full of unknowns. But…trust in their Teachers, Mark and Davene, and/or trust in their guide. Lacking that kind of trust is usually fatal, because we always need the help and support of someone who knows the way when we are stepping into the unknown… For example, we do not reach the summit of a great mountain without a guide when we have no experience of the mountain, even if we are a world class athlete… And believe me, the MKMMA is a great mountain for the mind! Yes, for those who find the trust and courage to climb to the top, the life change is certain. It is not necessarily that they get a bigger house or a bigger bank account, or that they meet the man or woman of their dreams immediately after the end of the 6 month training… Nor is it that obstacles or misfortunes disappear forever...
