How to fuel your fire, increase your zest for life and bring back your mojo, without compromising your values or risking your money

The one powerful shift to actually change your life

An Ideapod email subscriber, Emilia, sent us this email a few weeks ago:

“I’ve been doing self-development work for over five years now. I even meditate every day. But to be completely honest, none of this was having an impact until I implemented what I learned from Rudá Iandê in Out of the Box.”

We want to make something clear:

Emilia is just like so many of us. Even before she joined Out of the Box, she was doing everything right. But despite Emilia’s dedication to improving herself, her life simply wasn’t changing.

But Emilia’s story isn’t unique…

Statistics show that more than half of people who do some kind of work in self-development fail to show any improvement in their lives.

And even if you are getting results from what you’re doing in self-improvement, you probably have the potential to dramatically increase the changes in your life.

This means you’re risking doing a lot of work on improving yourself without getting the maximum gain for your efforts.

But not everyone is struggling to change their life.

The secret behind people that change their lives (without compromising their values)

The secret is that the life of your dreams is already available to you, right now.

You don’t need more money or more time. You don’t need someone new to enter your life with the answers. You don’t need to heal a traumatic upbringing.

You don’t need anyone but yourself to change your life.

The truth is this:

You have everything you need, right now, to take control of your life, fuel your fire within and create massive change.

It simply requires looking at yourself in a fundamentally different way.

Let us explain.

Rudá Iandê is the shaman who taught me the secret to harnessing my power and living the life of my dreams

A note from Justin Brown, founder of Ideapod

I first met Rudá Iandê in New York City five years ago. He came highly recommended as a shaman who had helped thousands of people rediscover their life force to live the life of their dreams. He was also quite well-known for helping celebrities such as the performance artist Marina Abramovic.

But when I met Rudá it was more interesting to find that he valued helping ordinary people like me.

At the time of meeting Rudá, I was incredibly frustrated with life.

Outwardly, it seemed like I was very successful.

But deep down I never felt good enough.

I constantly compared myself to people who I saw as more successful. I couldn’t express myself with authenticity. I was incredibly scared of being a failure and continually anxious about my place in the world.

Fast forward to today and everything has completely changed.

I’m probably a little more successful, but the profound change has come from how I live my life every single day. I’ve learnt from Rudá how to build a connection deep within. The expectations others have about me carry far less weight. I’ve learnt how to judge people (and myself) based on actions rather than what they say.

It’s difficult to put the changes into words. It’s something that can only be understood through direct experience. Rudá often talks about living a life of spontaneity, from the guts, from the place where instinct and consciousness intersect. It’s a good way to describe how I’m now living my life.

I’m so grateful to Rudá for inspiring me to live my life in this way.

I believe this way of living is needed now more than any other time in human history.

We live in a world full of collective illusions that take people away from a deeper connection with themselves. We are constantly manipulated by the media. Our politicians don’t want us thinking for ourselves. Corporate elites have become brainwashed into believing in ideologies that simply justify their continued hold on power.

There are toxic relationships everywhere, taking people away from a deep connection with their own instinct and consciousness.

I feel so incredibly fortunate to have met Rudá Iandê in New York City five years ago. But I also feel frustrated that others don’t have the same access to Rudá’s teachings that I’ve had.

Therefore, eighteen months ago I invited Rudá to put together his teachings in an online course so we can make them available to the Ideapod community. The result (after more than a year of hard work!) is Out of the Box.

Rudá and I had no idea how much work it would take from each of us to make Out of the Box available through Ideapod. Rudá deeply immersed himself in developing writings, videos, quizzes, exercises and challenges according to a 16 week program. I had to rebuild Ideapod to launch the Academy, our learning platform.

The result is the most comprehensive, powerful and accessible method I know of that can empower you to reach your goals and achieve your dreams.

Out of the Box is the online workshop I wish I had taken at the beginning of my own journey. Once you’ve completed it, you’ll be living your life firmly planted in your own place of power with the ability to decide which game you’ll play in life and which rules you’ll follow.

Out of the Box: You’ll never look at yourself in the same way again

Out of the Box is a 16-week online workshop, providing you with a complete set of tools to develop your innermost self and harness your true creative potential. It enables you to redesign your destiny and take the reins of your life.

It is divided into four modules with 20 lessons, each containing comprehensive video and written material. There are eight questionnaires and 16 challenges and exercises to create a powerful behavioral shift resulting from what you learn.

Check out the video below from Rudá Iandê, inviting you to join him on this journey.

The brutal truth about why self-improvement rarely works (and why Out of the Box is different)

When you listen to the majority of so-called “new age gurus”, you’ll hear them say you can change your life and accomplish your dreams by overcoming your fears, defeating your anxiety or healing your shadow side.

This makes sense on the face of it. But there’s an unfortunate side-effect when you take this approach.

The problem is that we start creating the illusion that we must change who we are — that we must “fix ourselves” — so that we can live the life of our dreams.

We start struggling against our most basic emotions, putting a new layer of shame and guilt over them.

We end up creating a fictitious version of ourselves, a perfect one which only exists in our imagination.

While we believe this fiction is our true nature, we end up struggling more and more against our emotions and it only make things worse.

We get angrier, because we cannot get rid of our anger. We get more anxious, because despite our best efforts we cannot defeat our anxiety. We get more frustrated when in actuality we must face our frustration.

All because we believe these emotions are unnatural and we want to defeat them.

But reality always has a nasty habit of catching up with us.

Instead of trying to chase the illusion of perfection, it’s far more powerful to begin your journey of transformation by letting go of the idea that you need to “fix yourself”. You don’t need to “defeat” your so-called “negative emotions” of fear, insecurity and frustration. Rather than needing to be overcome, these emotions are there to be harnessed and embraced. They aren’t actually negative. They are essential to who we are as humans.

Let us ask you this:

How often have you beaten yourself up for feeling fear or insecurity? How many times have you assumed that your feelings of anxiety are something to be overcome?

Instead of beginning your journey of transformation from the proposition that you need to change something about who you are, it’s drastically more powerful to embrace all of your emotions, including the ones you’ve probably thought are “negative”.

The path to changing your life doesn’t take you away from who you really are. Instead, this path brings you back to your nature – helping you to harness the power of all of your emotions and embrace the chaotic mystery that is you.

Out of the Box is different from any other self-improvement course you will find. It is revolutionary for the way it helps you to stop fighting your shadows and fears so you can break through the mechanisms of control and self-repression that take you away from your true nature.

"But will this work for me?"

The teachings of Out of the Box have been taught by Rudá to thousands of people in individual sessions and retreats over the last two decades. Over the last 14 months, Out of the Box has also been taught as an online workshop to dozens of participants, and it has resulted in profound and meaningful change for the participants.

Here’s what his students have to say:

“Out of the Box for me was a chance to connect on a deeper level with who I really am, shattering all of these pre-conceptions I have about myself. It’s very grounded and has a really authentic feel to it. It can be confronting at times. I think that’s a blessing because we don’t often put ourselves in situations where we are forced to look critically at ourselves. But there’s no escaping this in Out of the Box. It’s a chance to strip back everything you think you know about yourself, redefining the way you interact with the world.”

Paige Talbot
Innovation Manager

“Out of the Box for me was a deep dive into the nature of self, the nature of life and how, as a human being, play into this and what my experience is. And doing so with a group of other people, being guided by a very fantastic human being. It’s really helpful that Rudá Iandé is someone who sees life and humans as part of that life so clearly. This helped me to shape my own perspective coming from Out of the Box.”

Michelle Lim
Coach & Facilitator

“Rudá Iandé is a very authentic person and is really good in giving you a different perspective. For example, basic things like the relationship you have with your own body which is actually one of the most essential things in life. He also gives a framework on how to deal with your basic emotions like fear, anger, and frustration and it completely changes how you actually feel. Alongside his guidance, it’s great to have a group of people that are going through the same exercises, also changing their ideas and frameworks. You get a lot of ideas and insights also from the other people that are doing the program with you.”

Gosia Kurowska

“Thank you Rudá Iandé for such an amazing experience with Out of the Box. I have learnt so much. It has really impacted me and reinforced how I want my life to be in the future. For example, I have recently made a major life decision with my career. After doing some of your exercises and challenges, and after experiencing very strong emotions over a number of days, it became very clear to me what I needed to do. I took action which I had been vacillating about for a long time and have not looked back. I have also learnt to understand my body intelligence much more and not just listen to my overactive ‘monkey’ mind. Listening to my body and not just my analytical mind has been a major learning for me and is holding me in good stead with lots of changes happening in my life at the moment.”

Jeanette Brown
Executive Manager

“Out of the Box has been a powerful journey that has provided me with everyday tools and lessons to recenter my energy, define my inner circus and embrace all of my emotions that allow me to live a more fulfilling and purposeful life.”

Chad Molleken

“Out of the Box was for me a journey of self-discovery, of reflection, of introspection and above all of rethinking my beliefs, valuing the role of my body, the psyche, of what emotions and fears mean in my life. I’ve learned to welcome me as a much broader, integrated and mysterious being. It is a path that gives me tranquility and conscience. Out of the Box for me is a new door, which opens me to continue discovering my own nature, and an invitation to honor it.”

Clau Logaldo
Visual Artist. Innovation and Digital Executive.

“They say perspective is everything. Whether looking into the box or out of it, only to discover there actually is no box. Like Pandora who really didn’t open a box but a jar, Rudá has laughingly encouraged me to look at myself as a vessel of perspectives. Grasping his insights, he helped me to dissolve these notions and find the deeper meaning I carry within, then let it out.”

This is a complete and fully comprehensive program in self-improvement

As you can see, Out of the Box is a comprehensive program in self-improvement that provides you with a complete blue print to design a new reality for yourself.

How much do you think self-improvement programs like this tend to cost? $5,000? $2,000? $1,000?

We’ve looked around and found that most of the other comprehensive and focused self-improvement programs cost around $2,000.

And if you were going to work one-on-one with a life coach, it quickly ends up costing you more than $5,000 in coaching fees. It’s even more expensive to work directly with Rudá.

We’re not exaggerating when we say that Out of the Box is head and shoulders above what you’ll find elsewhere. It is so comprehensive in providing you the tools to create a completely new blue print for your life.
