Meet the Evolute Institute

What we believe in

The Evolute Institute was born out of the vision of a world where each person, particularly those in positions of leadership and influence, has the insight, competence, and courage to bring their unique gift to the world. Where leaders proactively engage in opportunities for personal maturation to connect more deeply with their innermost purpose, realizing and embracing the full scope of their potential and responsibility (response-ability).

Who we are

The Evolute Institute’s co-founders Dmitrij and Christopher have been on their self-exploration and integration journey for many years. Christopher as a teacher and trainer with a personal and business coaching practice that includes somatic & mindfulness approaches and Dmitrij as researcher and senior manager in a leading tech start-up while discovering the life-affirming beauty of the path of the heart as sketched out by timeless contemplative teachings.

What we offer

The Evolute Institute summoned a strong team of experienced facilitators, leadership coaches, as well as clinical experts and psycho-spiritual guides to bring a series of scientifically informed and wisdom-inspired personal development approaches to leaders in Europe.

If you seek change within and beyond yourself, yearn to re-connect with your inner source of purpose and aliveness, want to go deeper in your inner work, or feel drawn to an initiation to a wholehearted life, you are right with us.

Psychedelics – the new frontier in personal & leadership development?

Clinical research on psychedelics, such as psilocybin (the psychoactive ingredient in certain types of mushrooms), has experienced a renaissance in the past two decades, leading to spectacular successes in treating conditions such as addiction (1), treatment-resistant depression (2), mood (3) and anxiety disorders or even end-of-life anxiety of cancer patients (4).
