“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.“ – Rumi
If you’re looking for a change, you’re in the right place.
Many of us have a deep sense that life could be better. A sense that our personal life and relationships could be more fulfilling, our work life more effective, and our sense of self freer. We might have tried different strategies and actions, but things stay the same. We sense that a deeper level of change is needed.
This is where Newfield Network’s personal development program meets where you are. Ontological learning offers you a space to observe yourself without judgment: your linguistic, somatic and emotional patterns, master assessments, narratives, beliefs and desires. More importantly, it enables you to connect with what you care about most, see new possibilities for action, and learn new tools to make critical shifts in your personal life.
All this is done with the support of professional coaches and a learning community.
Whether you are figuring out what to do next in life, wanting to improve an important relationship or pursuing deeper meaning and purpose, Newfield’s personal development program will give you clarity, passion, and tools for your next step.

The most profound program
Among the various learning experiences in my 52 years of learning, Newfield’s program was the most profound and the most fun of all! I came out a different person. For example, it challenged the deeply held myth of my own self-sufficiency and opened up new vistas of meaningful community. – Viscount Thurston
I've had so many breakthroughs

I have had so many breakthroughs and insights, and, of course, still digesting the wealth of material and experiences. Also, the space that was created by the support has to be acknowledged. I am blessed to be part of the program and so look forward to the journey. – Helen-Jane Nelson
