Awareness Intelligence brought to life.

Psychology & Art belong together

The purpose of my psychology is less the pursuit of a conventional notion of happiness than the one of a more profound sense of meaning. That is why the fascination of ingenuity beyond mere “decorative” beauty is important to me. Art helps to clarify and imagine a meaningfully courageous world of social criticism and renewal, to find the true self, unconditional love and the connection with all of humanity.


The Power of Awareness Intelligence

A holistic goal of Awareness Intelligence requires a holistic and novel method that is a combination of therapy, meditation, and coaching. 

Die Macht der Bewusstseinsintelligenz

Ein ganzheitliches Ziel der Bewusstseinsintelligenz verlangt eine ganzheitlich kombinierte und neue Methode aus Therapie, Meditation, und Coaching.

The course has helped strengthen my faith in my own value

This "psychology" course is so dense, however, comprehensible, that, it really amazed me and taught me ideas that I had never learned before even back in my school days. The course is so filled of information that can greatly assist us in understanding how the world, the world society, per se, is actually moving (whether we assent to it or not). On the other hand, the course gives us its highlights that pertain on how to create a better environment, inside and outside of ourselves, either in a personal or societal sphere, by which we could still be convinced that life, “if spent with the right directions”, that life... becomes really worth living.

I love the way the teacher presented the lectures because it’s evident that why he created the course, that’s because he believes in the humankind and it’s privilege or worth of being taken care of.

The course has helped strengthen my faith in my own value and belief system, and also, it has somehow helped restore my trust in people in general.

Thank you!

Maria Ella Narita , Teacher (and student)

Ready to open up new horizons

Mathias's seminars deal about topics that academics barely do: social awareness and mental strengthening. As mental sanity is mainly underestimated, I believe this seminar offers a lot of takeaways to fill your potholes.
I really enjoyed when after the lecture, the teacher asks incentive questions and creates constructive and warm discussions where everyone cheerfully participates and shares their stance mindfully.
I remember every time I left the room, I could feel something deep reborn, ready to open up new horizons for occasions that I did not imagine to undertake.

Diane Nguyen , Student (Strasbourg University)

Helped me grow both as a human and a business person

Attending Mathias' sessions, no matter what the theme is, helped me broaden my world, improve my communication skills and grow both as a human and a business person. The sessions were delivered in a friendly way that all participants were welcomed to ask questions and exchange their opinions. A lot of productive discussion taught us the importance of being open-minded, learning different ideas, agreeing to disagree and, perhaps most importantly, being positive.

Miwa Namiki , Customer Success Manager

Inspiration for calmness of mind

The course taught me about mindfulness and inspired me to be more mindful. This is something that I think everyone should learn as it can be applied at work and in your personal life. I really enjoyed the course because it was a weekly reminder to create calmness in your mind which everybody needs nowadays as our lives are so stressful. Another reason why I enjoyed this course were the lively discussions that were held about topics related to psychology and life in general. These discussion would always happen naturally as the teacher would have interesting questions and was able to create an open minded atmosphere in which everybody felt safe to say what they want.

Marianne Delcour , Intern at J-Global Inc.

For the world to be "even more" a better place

I really enjoyed "thinking" with Mathias. His warm and accepting personality made it easy to ask any questions came to my mind. Conscious living, mindfulness, how the brain works, etc. Topics vary and his class is well structured. Not only you learn from him but participants also share their insights and inspire each other. This is not a boring, one-way lecture style environment. I wish children have an opportunity to learn what he shares. Then the world will be “even more” a better place.

Roots of cognitive processes presented in a beginner-friendly manner

How the course inspired, helped, taught me what: The course dealt with the fundamental psychology presented in a beginner-friendly manner, so I was able to see the root of the cognitive processes. Why I enjoyed: I'm interested in personal growth incorporating awareness and emotional intelligence, and thus the course provided the knowledge base. How the atmosphere, the teacher supported that: The atmosphere was pleasant, the presentation was coherent.

Weekly highlight for creative and thoughtful perspectives

Mathias, your sessions are so thought-provoking, they really get me thinking in new ways! I love the way you put together the flow of materials. You have such a creative and thoughtful perspective, and you back it up with research and evidence-based best practices. Your openness stimulates spirited discussion. You have created such a wonderful learning community! Your sessions are the highlight of my week. I have recommended them highly to my friends, and I recommend them to anyone who wants to be stimulated to grow and to grow their team.

Tish Robinson , Faculty Hitotsubashi University

Helped me to understand the psychology behind my own work

I found Mr. Mathias Sager’s course on Psychology very inspiring; especially since it was similar, but from a different approach, to some workshops I do. He had a very interesting approach which actually helped me to understand the psychology behind my own work more clearly. The atmosphere was such that everyone enjoyed the lively exchange of ideas and opinions. At least I came away with new knowledge and new ideas to pursue.

Norman Grant , Experienced HR Training & Development Executive

Insight for purpose-aligned leadership in the modern age

Attending Mathias's session on the psychology of leadership helped crystallize some of the thoughts I had about what makes a good leader in the modern age (aligned with purpose-seeking millennial values). Even if you know some of it already, having it laid out clearly helps a lot with realizing what you value, and maybe more importantly, what you want to be -- and I certainly gained insight with his help.

“All the unnecessary conflicts and aggression are the awareness-blind persons’ desperate canes searching for a way out of disorientation and anticipating hurting clashes. It’s the awareness-blind persons’ own helplessness and frustration that leads them to hatred, self-harming, and violent behavior."

"The body underlies the law of the now; it can only be enjoyed in the present moment. As for the mind, however, we got the ability to anchor in a primordial self-awareness, alertly touch the present, and expand our awareness into the future."

Psychology & Art post (click image)


“People tend to be content if they do well compare to others. Because there are always others who do let us appear compare unfavorably, the choice of a limited circle of easy-to-compare others might be a comforting self-protection strategy. However, such avoiding behavior also prevents from connecting to broader and more diverse walks of life.”

Rhythm: Dance of Life

We think our life with birth and death is different than anything else as we consider it not to follow a recurring rhythm. That’s why we mistakenly don’t dance through life.

Soulfire's Flame

The quality of thinking is determined by the level of reflective awareness from which it arises. Thus, our thoughts and the resulting emotions/feelings are in our control.

Psychic Blindness

Most people do not systematically reflect on their scope of awareness. Psychic blindness appears to be a common issue and, therefore, hinders natural fitness, unconditional kindness, and spiritual wisdom.

If we can stretch our linear image of our lifetime between birth and death into a cyclical form beyond our physical existence, we have achieved a similar quantum leap to the one accomplished when accepting that the physical world is round rather than a finite plate with dubiously ending edges.

It is not enough to sit in consciousness-raising meditation. A person, although stimulated by consciousness, would not be able to realize his or her self-actualization without (self-) experience that comes from awareness-intelligent self-reflection.

Nowhere-to-go Generation

Today, in every area of life, things are pushed to us by the invisible, de facto uncontrollable global and artificial intelligence-enabled online content and service providers. These pushes are non-locatable and ubiquitous at the same time. There is no “where” anymore, except for ourselves, where we are assigned IP addresses, IDs, and usernames.

Mathias Sager

Artist, Psychologist, Independent Researcher

Biography Mathias Sager is born in Zurich in 1975 and grew up in Switzerland. For many years he lived in Tokyo and also in Pune/India. Mathias is passionate about developing human potential, which is an overarching theme throughout all his work that is based on independent research and supported by intuition and art. Through teaching, counseling, and leading individuals and teams around the world, and with a background in education sciences, an EMBA in information and communication technology, as well as an MSc in Psychology, Mathias' goal is to inspire with interdisciplinary, innovative, and cross-cultural approaches to personal and professional development for individual well-being and the common good alike. For Mathias, psychology and art belong together, why his paintings often appear together with written pieces of psycho-philosophical research and wisdom.

Artist Statement As the inventor of the concept of ‘Awareness Intelligence,’ which is the ability to expand and systematically use one’s thinking in the full scope of time and social relationships in a triadic constellation, I regularly take up the number 3 in my works. My art intends to remain raw, simple, and naively colorful, yet intelligently connecting the dots according to the holistic thinking behind. I invite the viewer of my work to give a second look to get that systematic. What is put into my paintings is (1) self-reflection, (2) love of social connections, and (3) the care for the next generation. It is thought that fuels the painting process, which then generates awareness-intelligent emotions, hopefully for the viewer too. Whenever the creative experience becomes work, I bring it back to fun through disregarding any methodological and technical considerations if needed; the term “play,” from that perspective, would better reflect the nature of my creative process.

mathias sager awareness intelligence logo

Like Relativity theory is essential to Physics, Awareness Intelligence guides a new understanding of the mental world. Contemporary issues such as health risks, conflicts, and inequality do point to a single most critical cause: Unawareness of lack of awareness. Awareness Intelligence is a specific constellation of ‘awareness about awareness’ and represents the break-through decoding of a socio-temporal structure of the human soul. The tripartite socio-temporal matrix of Awareness Intelligence provides for a mental reference system that empowers for spiritual exploration and practical application of meaning, love, and compassion that is teachable to anybody for increased well-being, organization thriving, and the common good alike.
