Featured Program: The Mycelium Learning Journey

The Mycelium Learning Journey is a 12-week virtual and in-person program for people of all ages who want to make a difference in the world. Participants create their Journey through a self-designed and community supported learning experience. Each individual has a project or life question that is calling for their attention. The Learning Journey provides the minimal amount of structure and the maximum amount of support, allowing participants to have both a clear direction and the freedom to change course.  Journeyers (participants) collaborate with a personal learning coach, a practice group and a customized advisory board. They also have access to the Mycelium Learning Network, a community of world-class thinkers and professionals. Along the Journey, Mycelium acts as matchmaker, guide and collaborative architect to help people maximize what they learn and succeed in their work.

Throughout the Journey, participants develop skills, connections and relevant experiences, while also deepening their accountability to themselves in order to activate their fullest potential. When they finish the program they enter into a well-connected, mutually supportive community of practice. They become a living expression of the mycelium metaphor – an agile, interconnected network of humans learning and creating together.  Learn more about Learning Journeys.

As an emerging leader, I have an insatiable appetite for learning. I constantly seek to expand my network of do-gooders.

Ibada Wadud, Prospective Participant
The Mycelium Learning Journey was an illuminating individual, and simultaneously co-creative, exploration that took me way deeper than I had anticipated, into understanding how I learn best, and what it is that I need to learn now. It included the inoculation and cultivation of a living network of new colleagues, friends, encouragers, and co-learners that promises to be a fertile resource for all of us into the future.

More than ever, our society faces an urgent need to develop leaders that dare to dream the impossible and tackle the world’s biggest problems. This requires nurturing and supporting leaders in all aspects of their development. The Mycelium School understands this need and is courageously creating a holistic learning program designed to support tomorrow’s leaders.
Spud Marshall, Co-Founder of New Leaf Initiative
As I look back on my Learning Journey, I feel I’m now saying yes to life itself, to this great journey which is always a learning journey, and it takes many forms.  Saying yes to the journey itself seems much more challenging and also satisfying, because anything can happen on a journey, and everything that happens is valuable to the journey.  The Mycelium team supported me fully in finding all this out for myself, from within, which means I cannot ever lose it.  Thank you!

Mycelium offers a learning pathway that offers individuals a chance to identify their calling by offering support and guidance on terms that are manageable. If one cannot / do not want to commit to a traditional learning institution but desires the chance to be a part of a learning community, Mycelium is the answer.
