If you choose to participate in Accelerating Change, consider One Solution co-founders, Mara and Eirik, your guides and collaborators over the five weeks of the course.

I love the way every point in this course is so simple, ordinary and easy to see when it’s pointed out. It really does help you see through all the ‘junk’ of made up complications and focus in on what is actually happening (in whatever situation you want to improve) and feel empowered to make a positive change. Thanks you guys!!
Really helpful, guidance about listening, not getting distracted, showing up with an open mind and following in order is always useful when learning anything. Especially when you’re learning on your own without the physical teacher and timetable to keep you in line!
“These interviews are really valuable. Hearing how individuals have been impacted by the simplicity of knowing where their state of mind comes from, experiencing the resulting clarity of mind and implementing that within their organization is so helpful”
“I already feel like squealing with excitement at the possibility that we can make a practical difference, with love and fun not by force or manipulation”
“Without overthinking it anymore, I could just see how that conversation evolves..I put together a power point presentation which I want to share with my colleagues. I’m excited to see what insights come from the rest of this module.”
“This is just what I need right now!! I’m in the very early stages of finding a way to introduce this into my workplace, one office among over 140 that is apparently ‘dictated to’ by ‘the powers that be’ in their ‘ivory towers’… Watching this intro talk got me thinking that I can simply approach my bosses and tell them I want to help improve the current situation.”
Why did you make this course?
It’s hard to propel a rocket to outer space without a rocket engine. It’s equally as difficult to make change happen, on any scale, when we don’t have a deep grasp of how the mind is the engine that drives all change. It is our hope in offering this course that we can provide you with a personal jetpack that propels you forward by offering sustainable clarity, inspiration and the internal tools to make change happen faster. It is our ultimate hope to inspire more people, whether already involved in change initiatives, or just curious citizens of the world, to be propelled to action and feel they have the understanding of how to navigate their own mind, as well as others, in the process of creating a better world for us all.
Who is the course designed for?
Accelerating Change is designed for anyone who has thought:
How can we improve the state of things?
I want to help, but I don’t know how…..
There’s got to be a better way! Why isn’t change in my (community, business, world) happening faster?…
I’ve been a change-maker for some time, but I’m not sure I can keep this up. How do I avoid burning out?…
Why is the state of the world the way that it is?
How does our understanding of the mind actually affect the state of the world?
I want to learn something new!
I wonder if there are any online courses out there that are interesting, fun, easy, but also going to blow my mind?
How much does the course cost and do you offer scholarships?
The course costs $180, and yes, we do offer scholarships. We offer partial or full scholarships to young, student change-makers or group discounts for larger organizations or schools that would like to purchase the course for more than 10 participants.

Is the course all independent learning or is there interaction?
Each week you’ll be given access to a series of videos to watch, in your own time. After the first two weeks, and after the fourth week, there will be online video Q&A sessions with the course hosts, Mara and Eirik, for you and the other students to come and bring your questions. Additionally, at any time during the course, you can post written questions below any of the videos and they will be answered within the week.
How much of a time-commitment is it?
Accelerating Change is designed to be completed in a 5-week period and will cover all kinds of change from the micro to the macro, and how to facilitate it in a new and engaging way. We will cover:
