Course overview

Cross the next leadership frontier

Do you want to transform your relationships, future-proof your business or change the system? Then you need to cross the next leadership frontier: get out of your head and into your body, open your heart and learn how to co-create.


Co-creation is trendy but often misunderstood; we guide you to let go of your need for control, reset your ego and upgrade your sense-making capabilities.


What if your reductionist way to solve problems is becoming the problem…? Our own holistic framework, the Psychedelic Map For Change helps you experience yourself and the world like you have never seen before – no substances involved.


Transformational Leadership is the capacity to move things forward in a way that the cultural forces have not taken care of. You define where and how you want to show up as transformational leader, and we guide you to embody the shift your mind wants to make.


You get teaching classes, facilitated integration sessions, breathwork techniques and intensive 1:1 support – delivered by three co-creators.

This learning lab is a great fit for:


Business Leaders who are sick of the status quo and need a structured process for how to change it and inspiration for where to start now.


Solopreneurs who feel a disconnect between profitable work and personal values and want to attract more clients in-line with their purpose.


Game Changers who don't have time to read 100 books and want a stack of self-coaching tools to instantly expand learning and deepen impact.

Typical outcomes - you will:

Cultivate more compassion

We help you stop the blame and shame game, guide you how to open your heart, and reconnect with yourself, others and nature.

Improve your foresight

We show you how to sense into socio-economic shifts before they are on mainstream media and how to upgrade your sense-making capacity.

Break unproductive patterns

We challenge you to unlearn unhelpful yet sticky habits and nudge you to outgrow your problems right here right now.

Make better trade-offs

We train you to expand your mind and to design your step-by-step change choreography for what you want to say yes and no to

Expand your network

We teach you how to attract the people you dream to have in your circle and how to become a network node for fellow game changers.


We inspire you to knock-down your lead domino and future-proof your career as a pioneer of the emerging regenerative economy.

Marcus Druen

Marcus Druen

Course Leader & Change Catalyst

For the last 25 years Marcus has optimised his career to play the success game: he is an internationally regarded executive coach, course facilitator and change leadership expert. Marcus has worked with 5000 leaders at Microsoft, Adobe, KPMG, O2, Sanofi Biologics, EON Energy and Lidl as well as nimble game changers like Digital Service Bund, Future Energy Ventures, Xempus, and Desolenator. His company is called audacify, and his 50 Linkedin recommendations tell the story.

A string of life-changing events including a near-death experience, being fired with no financial runway, his sons neuro-diversity diagnosis, divorce, and the impact of COVID led to post-traumatic growth while pondering on this question: what are we optimising for?

Marcus realised that much in society is driven by perverse economic incentive structures and that late-stage capitalism is becoming a life-destructing force. He critiques by creating...

Scratching his own itch, Marcus condensed decades of his own research, ancient wisdom and client insights into the Psychedelic Map For Change. After exploring and testing this with business leaders on his podcast Leading Audacious Change and also in two online courses, he will now share his wisdom with you here in this unique and cutting-edge course.

Marcus is also a certified psychedelic integration coach, one of the first in the world. He supports mainly solopreneurs and transformational leaders to achieve non-clinical breakthroughs.

He lives with the love of his life and his son in a forest in the lush Surrey Hills in England. They have co-developed many routines, habits and practices that led to profound personal transformation.

In his role as course leader and change catalyst, Marcus will ignite sparks so you can create personal strategies that help you become the person and leader you always wanted to be. If you are disillusioned with the status quo, committed to changing yourself to have more impact, and open minded about leadership development in its broadest sense, then he invites you to join us on this journey.
