At the INVISIBLE ACADEMY we believe true leadership is achieved through service to humanity.

Whatever your calling, whatever your role in life, you will fulfill your highest purpose by serving others. The world is in dire need of authentic leaders who understand this. These are the leaders who will create a better tomorrow for everyone.

All you need to be a leader in your life, your community, or your organization, is a willingness to do what it takes to bring out the best in those around you.

The world needs you to step forward and become the leader you came here to be.

We will help you to achieve this.

"The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others." // Mahatma Gandhi
Are you an entrepreneur or a CEO?
Are you in a leadership position in an organization?
Are you focused and driven when it comes to achieving your goals?
Are you looking for ways to make a long-term positive impact in the world?

If you have answered yes to any of these questions, you have come to the right place.

INVISIBLE ACADEMY is no ordinary leadership academy. This training will give you a strong foundation to stand on as you create an extraordinary life for yourself and for those around you.

If you’re looking for run-of-the-mill leadership skills, you won’t find them here. What you will find here are cutting-edge life improvement strategies that many of the influential leaders throughout history have used to fulfill their mission on earth.

The INVISIBLE ACADEMY comes from the same tradition as Plato’s Academy in ancient Greece and the Invisible College of the Renaissance. Because of all the changes happening on the planet right now, we have opened our doors to the public to offer our services to the new generation of world leaders.

Our curriculum comes from an authentic and traceable lineage in the Western Mystery School tradition. This lineage has been alive and well for thousands of years, directing the course of history by empowering great leaders such as Joan of Arc, Leonardo da Vinci, Carl Jung, Rudolf Steiner, Albert Einstein, Nikola Tesla, and many others to do their work in the world.

We provide you with the tools and training to elevate your awareness, expand your capacity to serve, and improve the quality of life for yourself and for others in your area of influence.

The rest is up to you.

The INVISIBLE ACADEMY is looking to train focused and driven individuals who are in leadership positions. There are a number of reasons for this.

The world is in the midst of an unprecedented transition phase. Because of this, we are currently experiencing more chaos than ever before. We are on the verge of what could either become a global catastrophe or paradise on earth, depending on what decisions we humans make.

These decisions are very often basic everyday habits that go unquestioned. These habits are usually influenced by people in leadership roles -- whether they be politicians, celebrities, doctors, parents, or religious figures.

Many of our leaders of late have not been particularly good role models. In order for humanity to shift into a state where we can all thrive, we need excellent leaders to guide us forward into a world of new possibilities.

This is why the INVISIBLE ACADEMY has opened its doors to the public.

In the past, one would have had to achieve a great degree of self mastery before being invited to train with one of the secret Mystery Schools. Due to the paradigm shift currently taking place on the planet, we have reached a point where more people are ready to take on leadership roles than ever before.

There are many crises happening on earth right now, such as mass poverty, deforestation, terrorism, the collapse of the economic system, an unstable political climate, and strained international relations, to name a few.

Because of this, more people are experiencing apathy, depression, and despair than ever before. Suicide rates are increasing, along with violent crime.

All of these situations are the direct result of human actions. The solution? We need leaders to navigate the populace into a better tomorrow, by taking action today.

We need leaders like you to step forward.

It's time to restore hope to humanity.

This is what the INVISIBLE ACADEMY training will do for you and for your organization.

This training will expand your capacity to do good in the world. It will elevate your awareness enough to see things from a higher vantage point and make decisions based on the highest good of all.

By applying what you learn in this training, you will transform into a beacon of hope who anchors light into your community or your organization. You will inspire those around you, and you will help people to see opportunities they may not have previously realized.

This is was happened in ancient Egypt, which led to the most sophisticated society our planet has ever seen. It happened again in ancient Greece, on a smaller scale. This happened during the Renaissance. All of the pieces are in place for this to happen once again, this time on a global scale.

The only missing player is YOU.

The INVISIBLE ACADEMY was founded by Craig de Gouveia.

Craig is a multidisciplinary entrepreneur who is passionate about helping people to harness their full potential in order to do good in the world.

After years of researching human potential, psychology, human behavioral patterns, various spiritual traditions, and the paradigm shift currently taking place on earth, Craig concluded that Mystery Schools exist and have been active on this planet throughout human history. So he set out to find one.

This led him to the doors of the Modern Mystery School, an authentic Mystery School with a traceable lineage that opened its doors to the public in 1997. He has trained extensively with the Modern Mystery School since 2008, and is authorized to offer Mystery School workshops and empowerment sessions to others.

Craig is now directing his knowledge and expertise towards helping YOU to become the type of leader the world needs.
