In 1945, Abraham Maslow published a monumental study that turned the world of psychology on its head.
What his groundbreaking research discovered was that a new stage of psychological development was beginning to emerge in the general population.
The select group of men and women who had reached this stage were demonstrating new abilities, capacities, and creative intelligence, that most people simply do not have access to.
As Maslow’s research continued to unfold he noticed an unmistakable pattern begin to emerge.
He noticed that after all of the basic needs of the human being were met (survival, social, and esteem needs) a profound psychological shift began to happen within them.
They made a monumental shift from “deficiency” needs to “being” needs.
Instead of looking at life from a place of lack and insecurity, they began to see themselves, others and the world through a powerful new lense of possibility.
The focus of their lives and intrinsic motivations were now pursuing something totally different than most of the population.
They were now committed to a path of becoming all that they were capable of being. They were now embarking on the journey of Self-Actualization.
This monumental research rocked the world of psychology when it was published and was initially met with criticism and disbelief.
But as developmental researchers around the world continued, the overwhelming evidence began to mount.
Building on Maslow’s discoveries, researchers around the world from every major discipline in human development (Howard Gardner, Clare Graves, Jean Berger, Carol Gilligan, and many others) continued to observe and record the same developmental patterns.
While the evidence for Self-Actualization is fairly well known, very few people actually understand what it means, and especially how they can begin to cultivate it.
One remarkable researcher has dedicated his life to uncovering the science of human development and self-actualization. He has masterfully brought together Maslow’s research along with hundreds of other studies from around the world, into a comprehensive framework of human potential.

What Students are Saying
“I feel extremely privileged to be introduced by the very master to your theory of Self actualization. I was experiencing a new dimension when I first got your book from a friend “a brief history of everything” back in 2010. The way you bring forward your knowledge and theory was very clear in this course, and I felt energized after each lesson. You are an incredible master and I am very grateful for getting bits and bites of your theory from the master himself”

“I started reading and loving Ken’s work in the 1980’s. I appreciate the affirmation of the importance of this unique time. Good to confirm that it is not easy to share our interest in this shift or expansion of thought. Ken is a great model of one who has endured though his life and still shares interest about seeking deeper meaning of all things. Ken is special and is here now to help all of us. The section of connecting with like thinkers is great as are other thought leaders reinforcing these ideas. The comment section is great. I love Ken’s deep thinking and energy to communicate to all. Ken is special.”
