I have found that courage is linked to your centre and Big WHY. …whatever is at the centre will be your source of security, guidance, wisdom, and power. It’s what gives you your sense of worth, your direction, your ability to make decisions and your capacity to act.

At the heart of who we are, is our Big WHY, which answers the question of why does Master’s even exist and why do we do what we do? It is easy to describe what we do and how we do it as a leading academic institution in Alberta, but to understand “why” we must go to a deeper level of insight.
The Big WHY is more than having a sense of purpose in life. It is about purposefully making a difference in our world; having a cause that is bigger than yourself. Imaginal Leaders are those who have shaped the world we live in. Not only do they possess a deep sense of purpose, they possess a driving vision to create something new like Steve Jobs, to transform their world like Mahatma Gandhi, or to help the needy like Mother Teresa.
Virtually all of the curriculum taught in schools represents knowledge that is already known, and it is all about the past. At Master’s, we want our students to not only learn from the past at a high level of proficiency, we also want them to learn from the future. However, how do you learn from the future?
A new study by Stanford researchers Carol Dweck and Gregory Walton, among other scholars, suggests that spending effort developing one’s passion is more effective than looking for one’s true passion.
Recently, Master’s launched its new website, and with this blog we are now launching “Master’s Blog”. The purpose of the new Master’s Blog will be to inform and educate parents and key stakeholders on Profound Learning, to build a sense of community and belonging, and to promote the Master’s Imaginal brand in Calgary.
