Play big without

the burnout

Big Self School supports the emotional and mental wellbeing of leaders through coaching, classes, books, and Enneagram workshops and retreats.

Welcome to
Big Self School

This is your sanctuary. Take a deep breath. 

We are a place for the warriors and the worriers.

Join the brave ones. Quit the neverending grind. You can’t hustle your way to a purposeful life.  

We champion personal growth, the kind that starts with self-compassion. Your inner drill sergeant only gets you so far before it beats you down.

To have a full human experience, you have to commit to your mental and emotional wellbeing as much as you do to any other habit.

It really is that simple. 

Good mental health is for everybody. No psychopathology required. If you want to get stuff right on the outside, you have to work on the inside.

We have a soft spot for leaders in the trenches. Your work is stressful. Let’s use those hard-fought lessons for your greatest good.
