Our Vision …

Children and youth, in ordinary classrooms everywhere, being educated to gain an understanding of their guide inside--their natural, innate wisdom. 

We see this understanding fully supports development of education competencies and creates a new and lasting healthy direction for their lives.


Meeting Requirements …

Undoubtedly, as an educator you are responsible for meeting official learning objectives and student competency standards. My Guide Inside is designed to help you do that. My Guide Inside meets educational learning objectives and competency requirements.


Academic Goals …

MGI has these two academic goals for students:

  1. Enhance Personal Well-being with an understanding of the Three Principles, and

  2. Develop competencies in Communication, Thinking, and Personal and Social Responsibility.


  • Discovering their guide inside is key to learning.

  • Accessing natural wisdom develops Communication, Thinking and Social Emotional Learning (including self-determination, self-regulation and self-efficacy.)

  • Developing competencies in Personal Awareness and Responsibility (including positive personal and cultural identity and spiritual wellness), as well as Social Responsibility.

  • Enhancing students’ ability to make decisions, navigate life and build healthy relationships. 

  • Maximizing personal well-being and improving school climate, learner behavior, and academic performance.

  • Meeting education competencies cost effectively.

  • Young Child: MGI Book I (Primary) “The best thing I learned was stay calm and curious instead of fast and furious.”

  • Child: MGI Book II (Intermediate) “A thought is like a seed, it grows into a feeling that opens up inside you. Now you decide to let it go, or keep it … You always have a choice. It’s true for you and for me.”

  • Youth: MGI Book III (Secondary) “Understanding Mind + Consciousness + Thought is something that will stay with me forever and I will pass it on to others. I am so glad that I have learnt this valuable lesson at such an early stage in my life because now I will be able to apply to my life throughout my journey after high school.”

Excerpt from MGI Foreword: 

“Trust me, having the Three Universal Principles of Mind, Thought and Consciousness shared with your students, which is the purpose of My Guide Inside, is the most precious and life changing gift possible! 

These Universal Principles will introduce your students to their true nature and the inside-out nature of experience. My Guide Inside points students to the ever-present internal guidance of wisdom. For the rest of their lives whenever they are faced with challenges and uncertainties these lessons will be PRICELESS!”
