For the past seven years, Lissa Rankin has been leading visionaries on a journey of transformation intended to prepare visionary leaders for stepping fully, authentically, courageously, and unapologetically into their true callings. Each journey is unique and precious. Such callings rarely come with business plans. Instead, they require attuning to spiritual guidance in a way that leaves you receptive to instructions, as if you’re following breadcrumbs on a mysterious cosmic scavenger hunt that leads to deep fulfillment, inner freedom, and true purpose.
During the next nine month gestation of Visionary Mentoring, you can prepare the ground for:
Bless you for reaching out and showing interest in the Visionary Mentoring Program we are offering to no more than 15 carefully selected visionaries. If you’re like most of the people I’ve worked with one-on-one, you probably have a strong sense that you’re here on earth at this exciting time in history for a reason, and this reason has something to do with helping the planet, healing others, and participating in the shift in consciousness that is currently underway. You sense that there’s something more for you during this lifetime, something you’ve been preparing for your whole life, and your ability to fully live out this possibly unspecified purpose feels increasingly urgent. Yet you may feel frustrated with the challenges you’ve faced trying to realize this purpose.
If you’re like many others who are being called to step forth in service at this particular time in history, you probably share some characteristics with the other like-minded visionaries.
If you’re on this Visionary Path, you may feel like:
This Unique Nine-Month Mentoring Program Offers You:
You may have spent your whole life serving others, but right now, you are being called to fulfill your purpose. The world needs you to bring your vision to life NOW. Time is of the essence.
This Program Is For you If:
I understand that you might be curious about the kinds of outcomes you can expect from this program. You will be in charge of what we cover in this program, so it’s hard to predict exactly what you’ll get out of it. Many of my clients wind up being beleaguered doctors, lawyers, creative types, and corporate executives with aspirations to transform their service work into something more fun, fulfilling, flexible, aligned with the feminine principle, and spiritually “out of the closet.” But don’t be discouraged if you don’t fit that mold! Anyone from any background qualifies.
You might choose to ask for my help structuring and writing a book. You might need relationship counseling. You might need guidance developing a structured spiritual practice or navigating challenges that arise mystically as you transform quickly without appropriate grounding. You might need help monetizing a passion that you can’t seem to get off the ground financially. You will be in charge of guiding your journey. Part of the interview process helps us ensure that I am the right person for what you need. If I think someone else will serve you better, I will refer you to the right person.
Here’s a sampling of what some of my mentoring clients have gotten out of this journey. While many benefits are numinous, ineffable, and hard to describe, the following describe some of the more concrete results other clients have experienced.
You have a choice about how you live the rest of your life.
Your Vision depends on you stepping fully into what you're called here to do.
If you are selected as one of the Visionary Mentoring Program clients, your commitment to showing up bodily, mentally, energetically, and spiritually are integral to your success.
This mentoring relationship is a commitment. We are entering into a transformational sacred contract together that is capable of radically changing not just your visionary business, but your whole life. The intention of this program is not to create dependency between you as the client and me as the mentor; it is to solidify your relationship with the mentor within, which I call your “Inner Pilot Light.” With that inner mentor taking the wheel of your life, your possibilities are limitless.
The real question you’ll need to ask yourself is “Are you ready?” I can meet you on the other side of the portal into this transformational experience, but only you can open the door and put both feet all in. This will be a deep and sometimes triggering experience. Big dreams often come with big blocks, and it will be my responsibility to help you see, address, and heal these blocks so your natural life force can flow through you unimpeded. Because traumatic blocks will impair your ability to co-create what you wish to create in this program, I will help set you up for success by asking you to see a therapist with expertise in clearing trauma as an adjunct to this program. The willingness to examine and heal what may be hard to face is part of what will help you get the most out of this program, regardless of what impels you to apply for it.
When I took a leap of faith and left my stable, lucrative, and miserable job as a full-time physician in a busy managed care OB/GYN practice, I knew I was called to be a healer, but practicing medicine that way was sucking my soul dry. Seeing 40 patients a day just wasn’t what I was called to do. I didn’t know it at the time, but I was suffering from “moral injury.” Harvard physicians Simon Talbot and Wendy Dean explain that doctors aren’t just burned out; we have moral injury. “Failing to consistently meet patients’ needs has a profound impact on physician well-being—this is the crux of consequent moral injury.” It’s not just doctors who feel this way. Many other service professionals—therapists, lawyers, educators, politicians—feel called to serve but wind up feeling like they’re failing the very people they are here to help.
But if being a doctor wasn’t what I was here to do, what was? I wound up pregnant and suicidal, feeling trapped and helpless. The pain grew until I couldn’t bear it anymore, so I quit my job, even though I was the sole breadwinner in the family with no plan for how to make a living.
I had no idea what would come next. I was in the space between stories, and I just had to wait until my next move became clear.
I yearned for a mentor, but I didn’t know where to turn for help. I spent two years of what I came to call my “waiting and becoming” years, during which I crystallized my vision—to help people heal, connect, wake up and thrive, not just in their physical health, but in all aspects of their lives. As a physician, I knew that it wasn’t enough to treat only the biochemical elements of a healthy lifestyle. Sure, diet, exercise, a good night’s sleep, and taking your vitamins are keys to a healthy life. But if you’re in an abusive marriage, you hate your job, you feel spiritually disconnected, you feel creatively thwarted, you can’t stand where you live, and you haven’t found your people, no drug, surgery, supplement, or diet plan is going to save you. The body is a mirror of how we live our lives and carries the imprint of all of our traumas. I began to see a path that would take me to whatever was next, but all I got was one breadcrumb at a time on this mysterious path to God knows where.
What ensued was a burning desire to create a revolution in health care, to change how we think about health and healing, and to start a grass roots campaign to shift the paradigm of modern medicine. But how?
After leaving medicine in 2007, I dreamed of becoming a professional writer, but four years later, I had gone from owning a house and having a cushy retirement account to having sold my house and spent every penny of my home equity and savings account in order to fund my dream, and I still had no plan for how to get back on my feet again. I had a newborn baby and a stay-home Daddy husband to support, but by January 2011, I was $200,000 in debt with no real hope of fulfilling my purpose or generating revenue in sight. I dreamed of being a career writer, but I had lost my agent, broken up with my publisher, and hung out a shingle as a “life coach,” although nobody was really calling me. Things were grim, and I got very scared and depressed. When you’re that frightened, it’s easy to get seduced off purpose, which is what began to happen. I felt tempted to compromise my soul’s integrity in order to pay the bills because I didn’t trust myself to be able to get us out of debt. I was making fear-based decisions and feeling pretty desperate, but who wants to hire someone who gives off a desperate vibe?
When I was at my darkest moments, I was lucky enough to be taken under the wing of several mentors who helped me rise from the ashes of my wounded ego. I managed to climb out of the fear, desperation, helplessness, hopelessness, and debt in order to build a successful seven-figure business that offers me financial stability while I fulfill my true purpose. And because I remember how scary and challenging it was to get from there to here, I’m committed to serving those who, like me, know they are here to serve humanity and need a little help from someone who has learned everything the hard way.
I was guided to create the Visionary Mentoring Program as a reflection of what I wished had been available to me years earlier, when I found myself stuck in the liminal space of uncertainty, which for many visionaries is both terrifying and the gestational birthplace of many miracles. It gives me great joy to offer solace, guidance, practical tools, transformational support, and spiritual counseling to those who need what I needed back then.
As I wrote about in The Anatomy of a Calling, which is the story of my own visionary quest to fulfill my purpose and align with my soul, I now know that aligning with your purpose is a spiritual journey, and it requires illuminating your blind spots, coming face to face with your darkest fears, being willing to look at all that isn’t true about Who You Really Are, learning to hear and trust your Inner Pilot Light, and becoming intimate with all the parts of you that you may have exiled or demonized so your soul can take the wheel, not just in your business, but in your life.
There’s nothing I love more than helping other visionaries do JUST THAT so they can get to work doing what they’re here to do while running a successful business as a side effect of aligning with your true purpose. So that’s why I decided to put this program together— because I genuinely care about visionary entrepreneurs like you, and because the very survival of the planet depends on you fulfilling your purpose. Ultimately, this program is about service—my service to you but also your service to that which wants to be born through you as part of the transformation of consciousness on a planet in need of healing.
FIRST . . . submit an application. While requesting an application does not commit you to participating in this program, it does express your interest and allow us both to better understand whether this is the right fit for you and us.
THIRD . . . qualified applicants will be personally interviewed by Lissa before the clients are selected. Each application will be carefully reviewed, and if it looks like a potential match, you will be scheduled for a personal phone interview. Your interview does not in any way obligate you to participate in the program. It’s just a way for you to check out me and for me to tune into whether I think I can give you what you need and deserve. Don’t worry! You can’t do this wrong. Trust that the interview process just helps us select the Divinely-aligned perfect clients for this round, and if you’re not selected this time, we may do it again one day. So please trust the process and don’t be nervous.
NOTE: The program enrollment is first come, first serve. Please don’t delay. If this program feels aligned for you, please respond as soon as you can so we have more flexibility with scheduling your interview.
A full service, in-person, personalized, anything-goes 8-hour VIP day in the Bay Area with Lissa. Your VIP day may be scheduled at any point during the 9 month journey, depending on scheduling. You’ll arrive in the Bay area the day before the Big Day, where you’ll be met by a driver who will escort you to your luxury hotel so you can catch some R&R before we meet. Before your VIP day, we will have had at least one phone session, and I will ask you to get clear on what you hope to achieve during the day, so we can tailor the day to your particular needs. We can discuss all the possibilities of how we can use that time, so you know my areas of expertise and how you might best utilize our time together. I may have my vision for what is possible for you, but this is YOUR day to structure however you desire. I’ll be at your service, so don’t give your power away to me. I’ll expect you to stand for what you need and participate in making sure you get your needs met. I can help steer us if I know your intentions—or we can go with the flow and see where we land. But it will be your responsibility to communicate clearly about how I can best serve you.
On the day itself, we’ll pick you up at 9:30 a.m. and transport you to Lissa’s home, where you’ll be welcomed into what her friends call the “Transformational Hen House.” We’ll break for a yummy lunch together, resume our meeting during the afternoon, and get you back to your hotel with a take out dinner so you can rest and integrate for the evening without having to worry about anything. By the end of the day, you’ll have a very clear visionary action plan, so you’ll know exactly where to get started when you get back home.
Nine 50-minute phone sessions with Lissa (Completed by April 15, 2020) one per month.

Mentoring with Lissa Rankin has been nothing short of transformative.
I felt deeply heard and incredibly supported by this brilliant, heart-centered, and deeply soulful woman. Not only did she help me reflect on my personal and professional goals, but also catalyzed within me a connection to what is most meaningful in my life.
Through mentoring with Lissa, I have found and strengthened, a place of profound peace within myself. I now “get,” in my very bones, that I am capable of living my life in alignment with my deepest truth. Words cannot begin the express my gratitude to Lissa. I wouldn’t hesitate for a moment to enroll in the mentoring program all over again . . . and again.
Being mentored by Lissa has been life changing in ways I could not have imagined when I first started the Visionary Mentoring Program.
I thought I knew what I needed and wanted to get from spending such valuable time with them and yet, what I got was nothing I was expecting. Instead, it was so much more. And, it was exactly what I needed to transform myself both personally and spiritually. I recently read a quote in a book that describes perfectly what my time with Lissa has been like: “The role of spiritual guides isn’t to help people know anything. It’s to help them not know—to hold the space of not knowing so that the deeper wisdom of the heart space can make itself felt.” (From the book Your Soul’s Compass, by Joan Borysenko and Gordon Dveirin).
Lissa held the space of not knowing for me (which was a scary place for me to be!) so my heart wisdom could emerge and propel me forward on my journey. She is a true spiritual guide. Her mentoring and guidance has been a huge blessing in my life and enabled me to transform my life in ways I never imagined possible.
When I first learned of the opportunity to be mentored by Lissa, I felt a lightening bolt “YES!” strike my body.
I knew that I was about to embark on a transformational journey. I had no idea the depth of personal transformation that would unfold—and continue to unfold—for me. I was familiar with Lissa’s work having read her books and blogs and having participated in an online course she offered. I related to Lissa because her story parallels mine in many ways and vice versa.
Through the vehicle of the mentoring program, Lissa supports individuals in their process of awakening to Divine Spirit. During the group sessions she weaved together wisdom and understanding in a graceful flow that is only possible when there is heart connection. Lissa is dedicated to radical transparency of herself and her experiences and that opened the door for me to come more into my own authenticity. Guided by her own wisdom, Lissa provided a new perspective on the pain and limitations that are blocking me. She offered loving support along with tools and techniques that I could use to begin to heal my pain and move through my limitations.
Lissa is a spark that ignited a flame of transformation in me and now that the flame has been lit, it shines and it illumines my way.
My goal was EXPANSION - In my time with Lissa, I have grown my list by 600%, doubled my twitter, and quintupled my Facebook with quality followers. She has shared my offerings with her tribe, and made truly valuable introductions. I've been featured on tele-summits and I'm co leading a live event with one of her connections—a major player in the coaching, spiritual, and self-love world. My online class size doubled and for the first time I had students from all over the globe sign up for my classes. I got such loving support and wise council from Lissa. She has been instrumental in helping me shed limiting beliefs and step into more of my potential. This has helped both my business and my personal life. My investment in her program was completely worth it. I highly recommend a season with Lissa.
Right away my Inner Pilot Light (as Lissa calls it) said “Yes please!”
Then immediately my head said “You don’t have the money, you’re out of your league, and you certainly don’t deserve this!”I had recently been diagnosed with stage four cancer and I was starting to pay close attention to my Inner Pilot Light. It was guiding me to follow my heart and apply for the program. So I did! I sensed in my heart that if it was meant to be, the doubt about applying, the money and believing in myself would fall away. It slowly did, as the Universe aligned itself and I graciously stepped into the program.
From the beginning, starting with my VIP day, until the end of the program Lissa always supported me as I began to break the barriers within myself that were holding me back from reaching my potential. I had no idea what my purpose was when I started the program. I just sensed that the dis-ease in my body had a much bigger purpose for me than I could possibly imagine. Lissa helped guide, listen and hold space as I stepped into my power and created a new me. She always encouraged me to give myself permission to follow my heart and trust that my heart would never leave me astray.
Thank you, thank you, Lissa for supporting me as I moved through my process. I now know that my heart holds the key to my happiness and my mind only holds the beliefs that no longer serve me. With this new understanding of self, I have truly been able to heal at the very core of my being!
The program has helped me to discover the issues that were holding me back and reaching my full potential in my life.
This is a truly profound and transformational program that provided me with the tools I needed to overcome obstacles and helped me get out of my own way. Lissa is very insightful, nonjudgmental, full of wisdom and helped me to gain clarity and find direction in life with their amazing abilities. Because of this course not only have I healed myself, I have also been empowered to heal others. Thanks again to Lissa for all the wisdom and helping others in their healing journey.
Close your eyes, take a breath, and tap into the wisdom of your Inner Pilot Light. Ask your Inner Pilot Light what is true for you. Be aware of parts inside you that might pipe up with discouraging words like, “You’re not good enough,” “You don’t deserve this,” “You can’t afford it,” “It won’t work for you,” or “You’re not ready for this yet.” Perhaps those voices are telling the truth. Maybe you really can’t afford it without causing undue stress on your family. Maybe you’re really not ready for this and another time might work better. But make sure you don’t take these messages at face value. Take the time to listen to how those voices try to protect you, but don’t let them make your decisions for you. Trust your intuition. Listen to your guidance. Surrender this decision of whether this program is right for you to Divine Will and wait for signs, dreams, synchronicities, and inner knowing. Every client I’ve ever worked with said they just knew by the time they completed the interview whether or not it was right for them.
I know how scary choosing to do something like this can feel. It takes courage and the capacity to tolerate risk. I remember how it felt jumping off the cliff when I decided it was time to quit living the unhappy, unhealthy life I had created. I remember the quivering in my stomach as I stood at the edge of that cliff and looked down into the abyss. I remember feeling the butterflies, tapping into my discernment, mustering up the moxie, and then screaming, “GERONIMO!” just as I discovered that not only was I not falling—I was being caught by an invisible force that wished me well and wanted to use me in service to Something Bigger.
This is your chance to leap, knowing that this program will be here to help you trust your own wings.
I trust your inner guidance. Maybe it’s saying, “Not yet” or “Not ever,” and that’s OK. But if your Inner Pilot Light is screaming, “YES! THIS IS WHAT I NEED RIGHT NOW!” then the next step is easy. Just request and fill out the application, sign it and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This nine-month program has the power to change your life forever, but only if you say YES when you sense that this is aligned for you. Are you ready?
With love and faith in your journey,
