An Inner Transformation & Awareness Based Technology to
Emergent World Problem Solving & Mystery

Inner Alchemy of  Creative Wholeness and Wisdom

to Heal and Integrate Consciousness, Seeing Through the Illusions of Reality and to Create from the Invisible World.

Self-System Wholeness Approach to infinite unfolding of the whole being is a holistic personal transformation program and awareness based  technology for integrally oriented problem solvers, spiritual teachers, health coaches, group facilitators and emergent world leaders and problem solvers transforming themselves to transform the others


the Myth of coming to being


My name is Kirsi Mäkinen, a founder, creator of Self-System Wholeness Approach, a teacher and a problem solver from Helsinki, Finland.

Sometimes the challenges we suffer from are ancient patterns of human consciousness evolution, still very alive within us today. As you see, the thousands of years old myth is still causing suffering to us. What we often don't realize is that the pattern is trying to show us the systemic errors, we need to work on to adapt our whole being to the new even more complex era of existence as individuals and collectives, part of global ecology, by participating with it to the co-creative birthing process.


Over the years of inner work of being and becoming a seed of evolution again and again and helping people to get out of their self-made traps, I have put together a program that helps you to adapt emerging world problem solving capacity, a process of evolving wisdom and wholeness and keep on resolving the ever present crisis' of human consciousness, that always keeps on moving, transcending and including.

How does "the new" come into being? And what does it take from each of us to follow through?


How to walk the path of endless creation and potential together with healing, integration and wholeness?

This is it!


"The most common story what I hear from people in my courses is how they are stuck with some part of their life or within themselves for any reason. They may not know how to change the situation and are often wondering whether they even should? They think about the price they must pay if they do it… They talk about their fears of transformation and how the current situation has served them well for years, maybe their whole life.

Some of these people are leaders of organizations working with complex problems or who have overloaded responsibilities and wishes to break away to live up to their full potential. Some of them are independent professionals or wounded healers noticing their even deeper inner responsibility as healers to heal themselves again and again... and some are people recovering from a personal life crisis and wanting to live in peace within to have a whole, holistic life and wisdom not to repeat the patterns. People with triggering dilemmas and curiosity to understand life, themselves and how everything works under the surfice, often end up in my programs.


All these people with different kinds of backgrounds have one thing in common. Something has changed in their lives. They know, they need to change themselves to change their lives. They sense there is something in their  current state of being and have at least an intuitive knowing that they don’t want to return to the "old self" and continue living with half of who they can be.


They often look for courage, awareness or other inner skills to resolve their dilemma and ponder about contributing to the world by generating new and using their creative potential. They used to believe in knowledge as an answer, but are ready to open up to new ways of knowing internally.  They may not have a holding, loving community around them to support their inner process and the birth of the unknown sensitive new being arising from them so they may feel isolated or alone. They may not know who they are anymore and what the world is like which is arising within…so they need new playmates to find out and to rebuild the "new self".

They are already quite conscious people so they are aware of limitations, shadows, constraints or lack of awareness that is disrupting their lives so much, that it is impossible for them to continue old ways anymore. They may have worked on their challenge for years, but haven't found a sustainable way to emergent transformation of their whole being, doing and knowing. They are ready to become warriors or light and defenders of the darkness to put a stop to the wobble between the worlds causing so much suffering within their consciousness and become a whole new self-system by enlivening their creative wholeness and wisdom."

Who is this for

International online cohorts


This program is for passionate inner problem solvers with radically open mind, inspired to create themselves more consciously again and again, who wish to develop their inter-intrarelational awareness and self-other leadership of depth and all areas of cognition (being-thinking-relating-collaborating-acting) to transform and embody new ways of being, doing and knowing that optimize integration of consciousness and effortless unfolding, bringing our past and future into this moment.


This is a program where we don't learn particular scientific methods or processes but become processes, based on already validated and commonly used principles of human development by several disciplines of knowing. We also believe that the most valuable way for reaching "knowing" is still the daringly courageous, heart-felt and discerning development of "individual inner wisdom" in co-creation with the emerging world. This kind of knowing is not about knowing a method or a theory, it's about becoming a "method and a theory" over the relational transformations again and again in action. This process becomes more and more nuanced and takes deeper levels of depth together with the evolution of whole capacity and in time with persevere practice you may start noticing being an endless, effortless awareness of awareness or increased differentiation and integration in the same time in your awareness... you tell me how it feels for you?


I invite participants to explore, re-create more freely to learn, grow, develop, evolve and unfold themselves through all emergence and trust themselves and their own way of seeing as an emergent evolving process of consciousness. During the program you'll learn practical inner alchemy, practices towards self-creative mastery of ancient wisdom and wholeness, slay the inner dragons on the way and return to the light with the treasure. This is a practice, not perfection or completion.


This program is not about knowing how things are or how they "should be". This is about becoming aware of the not-knowing how they are, daring to look at it, look through it, be with it (also possible pain) and find our ever present wholeness and wisdom to bring it back to our current time for integration. This program is about learning to be comfortable with the uncomfortable and uncertainty and participating life to transform the perceptions of reality that we hold. This is about liberating presence and realizing what it means in the emergent world. It also helps you learn flowing ways of living and gaining back lost experience of power. This is why the program also encourages people recovering from illness or trauma to find their natural agency again in connection with Self, other and the world.


This program teaches principles and theory only for what is needed to increase your curiosity and wonder to find out the rest on your own starting from within with the support of the group that operates as an online container and a "laboratory" to share and exchange experience, make more sense, deconstruct, ask questions, inquire without preconditions to what we are learning. We are learning from every moment and from all the people and understanding what learning is, is part of the learning. You are most likely curious about questions like "how does "the new" come in to being again and again and how do I really know something" and dare to problematize your own being to build a more robust "inner alchemy", which is your asset here and now to grasp reality from within.

The only developmental requirement is that you are able to identify parts in your awareness. 

The intention of the program is to give inner development practices to people who one way or the other work on to influence resolution of the emergent world problems with their collectives.  If you have done developmental assessments recently before, you may use the practices to explore it new ways. To know more about developmental perspective, please download the program manual.

"By healing ourselves, we heal the others and the world around us.
We grow up holistically healthier children,
Lead with integrity and grace,
Act from secure state of relating
In alignment with nature as it is


This is a program that benefits from people of different backgrounds to support themselves while supporting the healing and integration of others.


People and professionals identifying with the following groups are likely to gain skills and capacity to use the learning at work too:

    • Emergent world leaders and entrepreneurs.

    • People working on global challenges or complex problems.

    • People recovering from illness or trauma.

    • Mental health professionals.

    • Spiritual teachers, health coaches.

    • Teaching professionals in institutions.

    • Political and organizational decision makers.

What you will learn

Theory part, 2 months:

  • Universal principles of consciousness development, meaning of the evolution and basics of how to navigate your own awareness experiences with wisdom and wholeness.

  • You learn basics of an experiential integrative Self-System Wholeness life practice framework to start practice, embody and own your experiences, emotionally, cognitively, spiritually, in relationships, systemically and notice shadows and wholeness.

  • You learn to work on polarities and practice transforming perceptions and perspectives from either-or view to both-and view with continuous self-reflection and action learning.

  • You become more aware of how the growing awareness becomes a process in you and how social construction of our reality is taking forms in you, others and society.

Optional practice group:

  • In the practice group we apply the theoretical learning in practice to give you a few core practices to work within self, with others, in the world and for the world bigger than you that prepares you to continue after the course self or in the Inner Alchemy program.


  • You explore the new you becoming, how to differentiate the authentic self, how to work on the confusions, uncertainty or emotional reactions. These are all meaningful signs of who you are becoming.


  • You learn to identify and get to know more of your whole self, different parts of you, feel them and look at them, inside and outside. You learn to see how you are seen by the others and inquire your mutual experiences to practice reciprocity.

  • You practice sharing you with others more intimately and practice heartfelt listening curiously what the others say to build trust, vulnerability and reciprocity.

The practice group, 1,5 hours monthy, is open for all resonating with it and who also participate to the theory course. The group has a community platform to continue discussion there and optionally you may find a study buddy to practice with your own time.
