Mentora Foundation is dedicated to developing a fellowship of global changemakers who are committed to building a principled world.

The world needs changemakers

The old world order is being dismantled. We do not as yet know what the new order will be. It is being silently sculpted by the actions and choices all of us are making every day.

Successful transformation will require a new generation of changemakers who catalyze outer transformation in people’s behavior and circumstances by inspiring inner transformation in their values, feelings, thoughts, beliefs and intentions. At Mentora, we’re helping identify and develop these inside-out changemakers.

Mentora’s training has helped me understand that I need to project my Inner Core outward, then activate others’ Core to get everyone to synchronize.

Participant voices from mentora institute's training programs

Mentora’s Inner Mastery | Outer Impact approach means I no longer struggle to search for different tools, frameworks, concepts, or philosophies. Instead, I need to activate my Inner Core and then use the energy-actions to express it in daily life.
