The Self-Learning Revolution Series
The Self-Learning Revolution series by Dr. Jeannette J. Vos provides how-to help for youth, parents and leaders of all ages. Learning tools train and build the full scope of brain and mind—to help express natural talents to their full potential. With these tools, readers can learn how to awaken, deepen, unleash and thrive, using their self-learning abilities. They can power up their futures and encourage others in self-learning together.
Based on relevant results from interpersonal neurobiology and technology, we understand the mind to be integrated with our holistic selves—our thoughts, beliefs, values, capabilities, and dimensions (mental, physical, emotional, social and spiritual). All these aspects of the brain, body and spirit work together to power the mind. Holistic integration is the basis of self-learning.
As a corollary, we need a healthy and balanced lifestyle to use the best of our brain and mind. We have the ability to learn self-care and how best to care for others and the planet. We first need to learn about ourselves—who we are and who we are becoming; how to think critically and creatively; how to assess our strengths and talents; and the ways to achieve wellness.
Through our personal journey of self-learning, we become conscious of the difference we can make in the world through imagination, innovation and connections. With our capability for combining machine learning with intelligence, exploration, entrepreneurship and relationship, an amazing new world emerges.

Welcome to the Self-Learning Revolution!
Dr. Jeannette J. Vos, coauthor of the international best-seller, The Learning Revolution, dives into the innate mind for eight golden treasures. With these, you can direct your own learning in today’s fast-paced world for mind mastery.
You may already use some of the treasures for self-learning, because you were born this way, but many of us feel that, whether in school or in business, we don’t have permission to use our own special abilities on a daily basis. We need to relearn how!
What is self-learning?
The term self-learning, as coined by the author, refers to learning that is more than self-directed learning—it is personalized and innate, based on our holistic nature of blended capacities in mental, physical, emotional, social and spiritual dimensions. Each dimension is supported by a state of becoming (or a mindset) for self-learning: thinking, doing, feeling, relating and seeking. The interweaving of these dimensions brings about a natural way for us learn—that is self-learning.
Why become a self-learner?
To be a self-learner is vital, now more than ever before, because the pace of the world increases, year by year. The rate of change is based on how humans see animals, the environment and each other—as something to exploit or relate to. Schools and businesses around the world are not keeping pace with change. People now have to become self-learners and, for many, this means becoming an entrepreneur. The need to create a better world is imminent. We need new ideas and solutions to create a future without repeating pandemics, climate emergencies and other disasters. How can we do this? We can become self-learners and entrepreneurs together!
Self-Learning Mastery covers six chapters, plus a short introduction. Read about five powerful states of mind necessary for integrating self-learning in your life. Find learning tools that you need to manifest eight self-learning treasures. Then, read five stories from ordinary people who demonstrate some self-learning treasures for mastery in their life. Top it off with a chapter on how to master self-learning through entrepreneurship by contributing author, Dr. John Mendola, founder of University Curriculum of Independent Learning.
Coach for Self-Learning: Handbook for Parents and Teachers
The Coach for Self-Learning handbook, coauthored by Dr. Jeannette Vos and Robin Cox, provides leaders, mentors and parents with how-to methods to become a coach. Read it alongside The Self-Learning Revolution series of books that provide help to achieve full potential. This user-friendly handbook is a reference guide with a strong emphasis on coaching youth, but the ideas are not limited to youth.
Innately, we are all self-learners. Once we learn something, we feel that we want to teach someone else, as sharing our learning is natural. The challenge is to teach others so that they want what we have to offer. That is what Coach for Self-Learning is all about.
The Role of the Coach
Teaching is not always the best approach, as it implies “talk and chalk.” Coaching, on the other hand, is related to “walk the talk” and “show and tell.” Through coaching, we become available, nurturing and helping others to create well-being in their lives and the means to adjust their own inner and outer environments. Youth benefit from the encouragement and support of non-judgmental adult coaches as they embark on their journey of self-learning, self-discovery and transformational leadership.
To undertake the role of a coach, we need to understand who we are coaching, their interests, their personal issues, the obstacles they face, their strengths and hobbies. We need information relevant to their consciousness journey.
Coaches who have a deeper understanding of the world of youth find it easier to respond to daily challenges in a constructive and empathetic way. The goal is to enhance self-learning in a self-empowering way. This book provides essential help for coaches.
The handbook includes key issues in global research; relevant research results on adolescent brain development; understanding youth self-image and self-esteem; youth individuality and how to identify strengths; effective communication skills; strategies and ideas; maintaining a positive mindset; conflict resolution; how to develop a healthy and balanced lifestyle; planning, goal setting and time management; use of technology and social media; user-friendly roles and tasks for coaches; activities for youth; coaching transformational leadership to serve others; and discussion topics for coaches and youth.
