Message from Jean Houston and Anneloes Smitsman
"Our world is in a tipping point towards unprecedented changes with compounding impacts. Many people feel largely unprepared to deal with all that is happening. And yet, this time also offers unprecedented opportunities. We call this time of rebirth: a Regenerative Renaissance. Here is what makes the critical difference:
Knowing how to activate the future potentials of new cycles of life.
With future potentials, we mean something quite specific: Namely, the future potentials from higher orders of reality that emerge through rebirth and transformation.
We designed this course, and wrote the Future Humans Trilogy, to make sure that everyone understands how to access and activate their future potentials of an emerging new era.
Through this course, you'll gain access to cutting-edge new paradigm science combined with ancient and future wisdom, for becoming the future humans of a new era. Through this course, we will share with you the WHY, HOW, and WHAT of future change.
You'll also learn how to develop your renaissance capacities for radical renewal, high creativity, and the activation of latent and whole new transformative capacities.
Discover the art and science of higher states of awakening and develop your multi-dimensional depth perception.
Become a Future Catalyst!!"

What people are saying who completed this course
“The Catalyst course is much more than a course; it is an invitation to embark on a life-changing journey. The combination of Dr Jean Houstons and Dr Anneloese Smitsmans teachings is a beautiful happening speaking to the participants' minds, hearts and souls.

Who this course is for
This course is for everyone who seeks to enhance their personal and professional capacities and live a life of deeper meaning and purpose. Whether you are a facilitator, educator, therapist, leader, researcher, cultural creative, student, innovator, social architect, artist, system designer, or simply someone who is looking for a program that is inspired, truly original, and unconventional, you will receive tremendous value from this course.
Together we will show you how we can each activate, develop, and apply our future human potential, as well as safely explore the higher consciousness states of deep transformative change.
New Paradigm Sciences
The scientific foundations of the Future Humans courses and books are based on key discoveries from fields of new paradigm sciences, including quantum physics, cosmology, evolutionary systems design, and depth psychology. These discoveries and insights reveal how life and our Universe is a unified reality of fractal holographic potentials at all scales of existence. This unified understanding is in stark contrast with the mechanistic worldview of a Universe of separate parts and random events.
You will learn how the cosmological architecture of life is an architecture of holism, a living architecture of Consciousness, and what this implies for each of us and our world. You will also learn how these principles are being applied for the much-needed transformation of our societies, systems, technologies, and cultures.
What You'll Learn...
5-Week Online Training Program
We start by exploring groundbreaking new insights about the fundamental reality of our Universe, as a Cosmic hologram composed of an informational architecture of consciousness.
We'll explore the systemic reasons for the challenges and opportunities of this renaissance time, and how you can learn to dance and navigate with the forces of change as a future human in becoming.
We continue our journey by developing our renaissance capacities with the help of our imaginal powers, and we'll explore the emerging new mythos.
We deepen our journey through five future archetypes for activating and actualizing your future potential through five formative stages and states of consciousness.
We'll develop our navigational skills for exploring the landscapes of consciousness with the help of the Cosmic Compass design, as we'll set course towards the North Star of Thrivability.
We'll complete the journey with a celebration and by entering into the new story and exploring what it means to become an architect of the future possibilities of the new emerging era.
You'll also receive four of the nine Consciousness Keys of the Future Humans Trilogy and five transformative practices to support your personal transformation during this journey.
The Cosmic Architecture of Life
The Key of Conscious Choice
WEEK 1 - August 3rd, 2021
We start by exploring the fundamental unity of life through the Cosmic architecture of the Universe, and what this means for becoming a Future Catalyst. You will learn how to activate your future potential and shift your consciousness with the Key of Conscious Choice.
You will also learn about three fundamental principles of life and how this is being applied for systemic transformation in fields of education, economics, governance, and social change. The transformative practice of this session will help you to directly experience the Cosmic architecture of your inner being and how you can fundamentally shift your reality with the Key of Conscious Choice.
The Regenerative Renaissance of Self and Society
The Key of Imaginal Power
WEEK 2 - August 10th, 2021
You'll learn about the imaginal realm of consciousness and the importance of your imaginal powers, and how this becomes activated during renaissance times. You'll also learn how to work with the renaissance dynamics of our time for radical renewal, regeneration and high creativity, and how this can activate latent, as well as new capacities.
Through the Key of Imaginal Power you’ll learn how you can join life in the powers and process of renewal and evolution, and how the imaginal realm is encoded within every living system and organism, including you! This session completes with a practice for developing and enhancing your imaginal powers and exploring the future possibilities of your future potentials.
Actualizing our Future Human Potential
The Key of Becoming
WEEK 3 - August 17th, 2021
You'll learn about the process of the metamorphic rebirth of the caterpillar becoming a butterfly, and how this applies to your life and our world, as well as how to grow your new body of consciousness and our future systems. You’ll also learn about the critical role of the cocoon and 'cocooning time', including how to work with the ‘evolutionary enzymes’ for dissolving the former caterpillar structures.
Through the Key of Becoming, you’ll learn how to actualize your future human potential through five specific consciousness states and Future Archetype patterns: the Wholeness Coder, Future Creative, Evolutionary Catalyst, Pattern Weaver, and New Paradigm Storyteller. This session completes with a transformative practice for entering the Cosmic Cocoon and moving through your own process of metamorphosis.
Navigating the Seas of Change
The Cosmic Compass Architect Tool
WEEK 4 - August 24th, 2021
You'll learn about the Cosmic Compass design for navigating the landscapes of consciousness, and how to become aware of the coordinates of the Cosmic architecture of life for navigating by the North Star of Thrivability. You'll also learn how this has been applied for the redesign and transformation of our economic, social, educational, and governance systems.
You’ll then learn how you can contextualize this Cosmic Compass design for your life and work, and for navigating the dynamics of societal and planetary change. This session completes with a transformative practice for connecting with your inner Cosmic Compass, and how to uplift your life with your inner North Star of cosmic consciousness.
Acquiring the Catalyst Capacities & Entering the New Story
The Key of Cosmic Communication
WEEK 5 - August 31st, 2021
In this final training session, you’ll receive the support to integrate all you have learned as a Future Catalyst. Through the Key of Cosmmic Communication, you’ll learn about the information of immortality, and how your state of consciousness influences the state of information that you perceive and transmit. You'll also learn how to enter enter into unity consciousness and how this helps you to transform common duality traps, and communicate from the wholeness of life.
Through anecdotal stories and real-life examples, it will become even clearer why many of our human-made systems are not able to renew, transform, or evolve by design. Through a transformative practice you’ll be able to enter into and become the new story - the new mythos. You’ll now discover how you can catalyze future change through the new mythic hero and heroine patterns. We’ll complete this session through a celebration and overview of the next steps on the Future Human Journey.
