Once you complete your preparations in Basecamp, we invite you to step out and blaze your own trail on the Quest. This blended-learning course guides you in creating your own changemaker project or enterprise. You can explore deeper online content when you need it and discover more about your own unique purpose. You will also receive personal coaching and mentoring to support you in building and integrating mindsets and skillsets into your life as a changemaker.
As you reach the peak of the Quest, you have the option to join a Summit – a weekend workshop to collaborate with other changemakers blazing their own trails. You will receive expert guidance on how to take your projects and enteprises to new heights or use what you have learned to take your next steps as a changemaker in a new direction. This is also a chance to enjoy life among a community of changemakers and celebrate life together at the summit.

Ākāśa Innovation has given me confidence, a group of like-minded people but above all renewed hope for our future. I would recommend this programme to anyone who is serious about embarking on the journey towards flourishing, be that personal, professional, or both.
One of the most valuable features of the programme was the focus on my own learning process rather than on the final outcome. I felt more calm and focused and at ease with my own progress without needing to compare to others and to reach their level. The second feature I valued was the sense of belonging to a home where friendships formed very naturally and easily. I felt equal to everyone, even to the educators, something very liberating. I was given the opportunity to work on myself on multiple levels whilst also practicing our skills. These positive experiences helped me overcome long-held negative beliefs, a sense of hopelessness and low self-confidence. I feel very empowered and inspired for my journey ahead. Most importantly I am filed with gratefulness for all the experiences I shared and with humility towards myself, others and the planet.
Ākāśa Innovation has strengthened my mindsets and pushed me forward on my journey.
Ākāśa Innovation is breaking the mould! It puts spiritual, ethical and intellectual transformations where they should be - at the heart of education!
