Transformational Skills for Sustainable and Just Transition
The Sustainable Development Goals, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provided a framework for a sustainable world by 2030. It's an urgent call for action by all countries in a global partnership. Unfortunately, the progress has been too slow...
We lack the inner capacity to deal with our increasingly complex environment and challenges.
The Inner Development Goals provides an essential framework of Transformative Skills for Sustainable Development. It is an accelerator to reach the SDGs and create a prosperous future for all humanity.
Women's Participation Builds Peace
"The evidence is clear: peace agreements are more likely to last 15 years or longer when women are at the negotiating table. And yet, as of 2019, peace agreements with gender equality provisions increased from 14 per cent in 1995 to only 22 per cent." (UN Women)

Do you ever get the feeling that there
is an untold story, unexpressed essence inside of you…
a calling and a path that is uniquely yours?
If so, then you probably sense that in these times of global transformation and challenge
it’s not only time to be heard and seen but that there is a unique and meaningful path that you can contribute. Yes, you are right.
At the same time, you may feel confused about not having a certain plan or not knowing exactly what it might look like?
You may also feel frustrated when envisioning or sensing these rich possibilities, from a perspective of what you have been able to manifest in your reality until now.
For example, perhaps you…
Feel somewhat resigned, discouraged or depressed in spite of being a committed, caring person, working on her self-development for many years….
Find yourself over-giving or feeling exhausted by the demands of the work life, in spite of efforts to maintain a life-work balance
Feel alone and under-supported to generate the fullness of your unique expression and gifts you sense you have to offer, in spite of having peers network
Feel curious about a new project, passion or a career path that’s about service and impact, but don’t have a concrete vision and plan to make a transition
Feel an impulse to contribute a positive change in the world with the wholeness of your authentic presence, essence, skills and experiences, but have no idea where to start
Are caring about the state of our world, yet feel overwhelmed and powerless to deal with such large problems while still struggling with your own life challenges…
If you are feeling this way you are not ALONE. Millions of smart and conscious women are currently experiencing this painful gap between their sense of what’s possible for them and the reality they could manifest.
It was also my experience before I discovered how to access and embody my feminine soul leadership capacities, and I’ve seen it in other women I’ve worked with since.
Most of us have been working on ourselves for years to create a work-life balance, develop passions, maintain a sense of fulfilment, and accomplish goals in life without burnout. And although we may feel like they’ve achieved a lot, we are still yearning for an even deeper sense of intimacy, belonging, purpose and fulfilment… We yearn for something more…
Why in spite of all our accomplishments and commitment to personal growth – we keep feeling this insatiable longing? Why is it that we feel either restless or powerless about accessing inner fulfilment in life?
Most of us link the struggles, pain, and challenges that have been preventing us from creating what we most yearn in life (e.g. desire for deep intimacy, creative self-expression, the job that we love, integrity) solely to our current circumstances: not enough time, money, support, connections, knowledge, education. The truth is:
We have not yet embodied the artistry, the kind of inner capacities, creativity, inner leadership, that we need to create those things we most deeply yearn for.
The fact that we’re still struggling to bring forth the fullness of our expression, sensitivity, gifts, wisdom and intuition in service, is not our personal failure. It’s a sign of the pivotal time, in which we seek a new way of being and doing, on a personal and collective level, that would allow us to rise as a response to the challenges that encircle the planet.
The inner steering that we’re feeling is a calling of the times – our creative impulse to naturally evolve the ways of living and leading our lives that we intuitively sense we are destined to live.
The current education, health, economy, technology and cultural systems in general, as well as the capacities needed to function in our world up until now, have been mostly oriented toward the strategic, rational, controlling ways of pursuing goals. And that’s great (BUT....)!
Thanks to this system women (and humanity in general) today can benefit from incredible progress across many areas of our life and enjoy unprecedented standards of living that our grandmothers could not imagine. Current generations of women are rising in power claiming freedom, autonomy, access to education and financial independence. We have the possibility to give and share our voice, gifts, and creativity, to become active agents of change, and to have a global impact.
We are free to pursue our self-actualization, co-create, and evolve on behalf of all women!
At the same time, research shows that the fears and insecurities that keep us in the shadows and playing small are holding us back from being able to step forward and meet the opportunity of this moment…
Why is that?
Paradoxically, the more autonomy, freedom and achievements we have, the more often we feel frustrated, restless and powerless about “achieving” the things we deeply desire.
Indeed, our deeper desires – experiencing a sense of aliveness, fulfilment, purpose, deeper intimacy, belonging, authentic, joyful and creative self-expression, aligning passion with the profession, creating a context for sharing the fullness of our gifts and meaningful contribution to the world, can’t be built using only analytical, logical mind or a strategy.
To create these things that we desire and to begin to thrive at new levels we need to allow our rational, strategic side to join in lockstep with our deep intuition, imagination, creativity, flow, and relatedness.
We need to cultivate both of these two kinds of capacities, and use them in a way that they complement, interplay and support each other in a process of creative synergy.
This is an integrative and inclusive approach that enables us to develop new ways of being and doing, new ways of living and leading. Until now not many of us have had models, opportunities or environments to practice this approach in real life and have no idea where to start learning it.

About Your Instructor: Monika J Barcikowska, Ph.D
Monika is a global citizen. Polish by birth, wife, transformational coach and facilitator of feminine empowerment, environmental scientist, enthusiast of theory U, instructor of yoga and meditation, avid hiker and traveller, improvisational dancer and musician, and lover of everything genuine and inspiring.
With the heart of an activist and the ambitions of a scientist, she has pursued her early career in academia, NGOs, and humanitarian agencies, where she has developed expertise and deep sensitivity towards environmental issues and inequality problems all over the world.
Throughout her experiences, she has realized how big the opportunity is for women to self-actualize, pursue their calling and their passions, share their voices, to make a meaningful contribution to the world.
At the same time, she became exposed to the struggles that most women experience when working in high-performance environments oriented toward masculine values, which are predominant in our current global culture. She found herself either battling with fears and insecurities that were holding her back from meeting the opportunity of the moment or stepping into a masculine way of power and control that disconnected her from her own values and her genuine expression.
These experiences became a springboard to her path of transformation. Today Monika teaches other women worldwide how to connect with and realize their deepest yearnings—for creative fulfilment, meaningful relationships, authentic confidence, and having an IMPACT by contributing their gifts to the world…
In her transformational journey, she integrated her life experiences, talents, intellect and soul into practices of feminine empowerment. She became an artist of her life, a feminine activist who uses her voice on her behalf and on behalf of those who don’t have a voice. She has been able to unlock the power of her presence in ways that feel authentically powerful, liberating and energizing. This enabled her to manifest meaningful relationships, align her livelihood with her passion and purpose, and create healthy, prosperous living.
Living in different countries and being connected to women from different cultures, her mission is to serve as the global ambassador of INCLUSIVE CLIMATE ACTION and feminine empowerment that guides women through their path of self-actualization and creating a wholehearted and fulfilling life.
As a transformational coach and facilitator of feminine empowerment, certified by Dr Claire Zammit’s Feminine Power program, she has been hosting several women’s circles, workshops, and retreats.
