Round 10:

July 29 to Oct 8


 Discover Your True Power


A maximum of 15 individuals will be admitted into this round.

We intentionally keep our numbers small to ensure an intimate and personalized experience for each member.


Introducing Our Enhanced Program:

We're excited to announce the enhancement of our program from 8 weeks to 10 weeks!

This extension includes brand new never before heard modules and a dedicated integration week designed to help you further solidify this transformative experience. 


Unlock your true potential with Rise Above The Herd, a transformative 10-week program designed to cultivate authentic self-esteem and empower you to live heroically.

Break through stagnancy, reignite your inspiration, and deepen your purpose and connection to self and life.

Through in-depth self-discovery, learn to shine the light of your consciousness onto hidden aspects of your psyche as you embark on a journey to reclaim your power.

Experience profound personal transformation and up-level all areas of your life with our unique and holistic approach integrating the psychological, emotional, spiritual and physical.

Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom. 


This has been the best investment in myself I have ever made. 

Rise Above the Herd is a masterclass on unlocking your true potential and personifying the hero within you. It is the call to adventure you need to level up in every area of your life. It has re-ignited the creative spark in me and given me a renewed purpose to overcome any obstacle and achieve any dream I set my mind to. 

Joel and Yerasimos are compassionate, wise beyond their years, salt of the earth kind of guys that walk the path of integrity every day, and truly care about the people who are trying to make positive change in their lives. They have somehow gathered, distilled and synthesized a massive amount of data into this course, and the clarity of thought and expression by which they teach it is remarkable.

This has been the best investment in myself I have ever made. 

If you feel the call to join, listen to your intuition and take that first step. 

You won’t regret it.

She believes the body speaks in symbols and symptoms, making the objective to listen carefully to these unconscious ways of being as guides into the hidden shadow that could be inhibiting one's being.

Her intention is always to come with full compassion and resonance focusing on being entirely with the person in front of her and attending to what comes forward through the innate wisdom of their body.  

Focus: Nervous System, Inner Child Healing, Shadow-Work, Human Design, Somatic Experiencing, Embodiment 

You will have our full care, attention and guidance throughout the duration of this program.

I had reached a glass ceiling and couldn’t get beyond the mediocrity of my life that had become overwhelming. This course shattered the glass ceiling into smithereens and provided extremely well thought through steps, knowledge and experiences, to enable progress.

The level of detail revealed around the insidious programming we humans have been subjected to allows for a quantum jump in understanding and ability to take ones power back like never before.

There is life before Rise Above the Herd and there is life after.

The two are very different, just make sure you do the work and keep going.

The greatest tragedy in life is not death, but a life without a purpose.

Recent Testimonials from Rounds 7, 8 and 9



We are in a time of monumental evolutionary shifts.

It has never been more urgent and imperative that each of us expand our capacity for truth and authenticity, cultivate our internal power, learn to embrace the darker aspects of ourselves and connect more deeply with our own sense of self-governance and self-sufficiency in all areas of our lives.

See, you were born into a world where you were taught that to sacrifice your self-interests and personal desires for the sake of your friends, family, community and society made you a good and moral person.

Most people you see around you today are operating under the spell of these unconscious programs which are ensuring they live a life dictated by guilt, inauthenticity, resentment & mediocrity.

The majority of people you know aren’t fulfilled not because they don’t want to be, but because unconsciously they are afraid of what that would actually entail. 

What if we told you this is all part of deeper conditioning designed to keep you playing small, to prevent you from ever realizing your true worth and value and to entrain you to a life of un-lived potential.

Now more than ever, in a time where the control systems around us have proven without a doubt that they cannot be relied upon to support our evolution, we must be willing to take a journey of self-excavation to discover the inner riches and potential to truly become our own authorities so we can navigate this world and our lives to not only survive, but to thrive in accordance with our true nature. 

In a world that’s filled with misinformation and misconceptions of what it means to be a human in a time and day when everything seems to be up for debate, Joel and Yerasimos stand out as powerful embodiments of how you can live an authentic life deeply anchored in your own core values and purpose in life.

These two truth-seekers have not only put together a profound curriculum for personal growth, they also hold a very unique capacity for facing anything that comes up with kindness and love.

Through their clear perspectives Joel and Yerasimos have mirrored back to me my shadow and light which has developed in me the strength I need to pursue my individual path, the tools and capability to rise above conditioning and the self esteem to be free and to take actions towards a life less ordinary.

‚ě°¬†Do you want an enhanced sense of¬†self-worth and self-love¬†so you are empowered to live¬†a life you are truly inspired by?

‚ě°¬†Do you want greater confidence to speak and live your authentic truth¬†so you can set boundaries appropriately to improve all your relationships and attract aligned¬†community?


‚ě°¬†Do you want to learn how to authentically integrate your shadow¬†so you can¬†generate greater wholeness and access more of your life-force?¬†


‚ě°¬†Do you want greater levels of¬†consciousness so¬†you can¬†navigate¬†your life¬†with increased clarity,¬†discernment and make higher quality decisions?

The most transformational program by far...

This program has changed me profoundly and more than anything I am encouraged and am building confidence for quite possibly the first time in my life.

I will never end this journey of learning, growing and asking questions but I am shocked at the strides I have made the last 6 plus weeks.

I don't tell many people this but I've literally spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on my own personal development and learning how to build a business online...THIS program has been the most transformational by far.

You've really created something magical J & Y.


What are other leaders and coaches in this space saying?

Gavin Nascimento

Life Coach, Activist, Public Speaker 

Joel and Yerasimos‚Äô holistic approach to human success ‚Äď physically, mentally, spiritually, and financially ‚Äď is a realistic blueprint for genuine human wellbeing beyond the endless charade of fragmented bullshit that so many people try to speciously sell us online and offline. I can earnestly say that encountering these spiritual gangstas has enriched me personally and made my earthly existence more encouraging and enlightening along the way. I rarely vouch for anyone, because sadly so many people are fully full of shit, but Joel and Yerasimos are some genuine human beings that are earnest in their pursuits to empower Humanity collectively beyond the popular trappings of tribalism, impractical traditions, and anything that debilitates authentic human growth and freedom. Salute!

Jason Christoff

Self-Sabotage Coach & Mind Control Expert

Joel and Yerasimos have one mission and one mission only. They're in the business of making people better inside a society where most influences exist to make humanity worse. Attach your wagon to their star, you won't be disappointed and frankly only good will come from it.

Alec Zeck

Founder - The Way Forward

Joel and Yerasimos are two of the most authentic 'truthers' out there. No fakery, no bullshit - just authenticity. There aren't many other organizations I recommend people tune into, but I find myself frequently pushing people towards them. These guys are the real deal.

Matt Presti

Former President of the Walter Russell University

Joel and Yerasimos embody the spiritual qualities of what I call ‚ÄúGood and Balanced Men.‚Ä̬† They give you a well informed and honest perspective on a host of topics and don‚Äôt hold back from who they truly are.¬† It‚Äôs refreshing to hear this kind of approach in podcasting‚ÄĒstraight up and direct.¬† I‚Äôm never disappointed when I put on "Here For The Truth"‚ÄĒfor indeed truth is exactly what they deliver.

A Holistic Approach to Self-Work

Our emphasis is always on wholeness. This course will trigger and mobilize unconscious debris from within your own psyche and so placing a focus on biological and nervous system health and transformation is not only important but necessary to balance our evolutionary process. 

‚ě° Psychological

Psychological self-work is hugely important to any growth process. In this program we decondition from disempowering philosophies and grasp fresh and empowering ideas while constructing new neural pathways that embolden us to be the most inspired versions of ourselves. Unfortunately this is where the buck stops for many self-work programs and courses. 



Over the last decade, two of our coaches Sophie & Yerasimos have astutely accumulated a rare depth of understanding and knowledge when it comes to awakening biological and somatic intelligence.
They have been trained in many different Nervous System focused modalities including but not limited to Somatic Experiencing, various forms of Bodywork and more. This knowledge has been integrated into this program.

This program includes five 75 to 90 minute Nervous System Workshops. 

  • You want to bring alignment to your inner and outer reality.

  • You want to know and love yourself on the deepest levels and develop authentic self-esteem.

  • You want to bring forth your unique gifts from this life, walk your authentic path and learn how to thrive.

  • You are seeking to connect with a community of individuals who value truth and authenticity over ignorance and illusion.

  • You want to develop internal and external self-reliance.¬†

  • You want to shift from a scarcity mindset to an abundance mindset.¬†

  • You are ready to take a serious look at all the areas in your life where you are refusing the responsibility that comes with true freedom.

  • You are aware of the dangers of authoritarianism¬†and want to learn how to create value and sovereignty free from its constraints.

  • You want to build greater nervous system capacity and regulation.¬†

  • You¬†want to tap into you personal power.¬†


I slumped into week 1, struggling to keep my footing.

A mere eight weeks later, and a new purpose infuses my days.  I am becoming my soul’s gardener.  

Going through RATH is not a walk in the park.  If you’re looking for coddling, this is not the program for you. 

It’s a curated springboard for you to dive deep and reclaim your power. 

And you’re the only one who can take that leap.

Joel, Yerasimos and Sophie help light up the path ahead with unmatched authenticity, humility, devotion and humor. 

They rock the boat yet roll the smiles. I’ve witnessed sparks ignite in each of my fellow adventurers’ eyes as the weeks progressed;  emerging from winter’s slumber, life burgeoning faster than spring.  It’s a winding and treacherous road ahead, but I bear new tools.  

My head is high, my heart is strong, and the path ahead, clearer.  Although it was bittersweet to wave goodbye, the end is only the beginning. Thank you for the journey.

"The human being who no longer requires the approval of the crowd for love, respect or money is a scary individual for the status quo." 

- RATH Co-Creator Joel Rafidi


From Scarcity to Abundance...

Of all the programming and conditioning waged upon you, some of the most insidious are the inversions taught when it comes to how you relate to money. 

Money is not the root of all evil, nor is the love of it. 

One of the most powerful aspects of this program, praised by past students, is the potency of the deprogramming and empowerment around their relationship to money, as they find themselves shifting from a scarcity based mindset to a more abundant one. 

Worth every cent and then some

Wow. Wow. Wow. What a journey. No one wanted this learning experience to come to an end.

If you are wondering if you need this in your life, you absolutely do - this is your sign.

Rise Above The Herd is worth every cent and then some. I couldn’t even name all the takeaways I received from this program.

One that comes to mind - I didn’t realise there was still a block around receiving money but there has always been guilt surrounding earnings.

F*ck that. I’m filling my bank account and I’m going to feel good about it!

While this course addresses such a deep scope of healing and deprogramming...in many ways it can also be described as the psychological foundation required for authentic entrepreneurship. 

A core focus of this program is on developing authentic Self-Esteem...

Most people have no idea of the importance of self-esteem.

However the reality is that there is nothing in your life that is untouched or unaffected by it, including but not limited to the quality of the relationships you enter, the alignment of your career path, and your ability to dream and envision great potential for yourself.

There is no rising, becoming, or individuating without self-esteem. 

Self-esteem is the relationship you have with yourself. 

It is the reputation you have acquired as the human being you are, through the myriad of choices you have made in your life up to this point.

The quality of that reputation is the primary determining factor in how you show up for yourself, in the world and in every choice you make...it impacts how capable, competent and confident you feel to actualise your highest vision for yourself and become who you were born to be. 

Your destiny is the sum of your choices.

Self-knowledge is a fundamental component to this program.

You are aware that you have unique gifts and ways of being with and responding to life, however sometimes without a true mirror it is difficult to be certain of what is truly yours and what you have been conditioned to believe about yourself.

This is where Human Design plays a vital role.

It is a system of knowledge that integrates both ancient and modern sciences that supports you in understanding and accepting yourself at the deepest levels.

Throughout the 10 weeks you will have two personal Human Design readers to consult with regarding the main elements of your bodygraph.

If you are aware of Human Design you probably know how valuable this bonus is...

If you have no idea what Human Design is, all we can say is that we are very excited for the journey you are about to embark on should you choose to join this program.
