An Announcement from Michael

Dated May 4th, 2023

Membership 3 is designed to train you to own a Source Code Alchemy Institute Franchise (if you qualify). I would like to give you some updates as to where this is all at, because if you take this on, your success is VERY important to us.

For those interested in embarking on the M3 training, we are excited to announce that it will commence on August 1st. However, we must acknowledge that there are some uncertainties in play. For those not interested in pursuing at this time, we advise to kindly wait until the following year to decide. As it stands, there are some details about the franchise that are still pending. Challenges arose during our beta testing in Chicago due to marketing setbacks, which slowed down the process. We’ve invested a lot of resources and expertise to iron out these rough patches and establish a consistent, proven model. Nonetheless, there are variables at play such as changes brought about by the pandemic and shifts in advertising policies by Facebook and Apple, to name a few. Nevertheless, we assure you that we are working hard to figure things out as soon as possible.

We understand that the previous M2 and HBL IP models required a lot of self-reliance in terms of marketing and business development. But with this M3 franchise model, we are endeavoring to have all the components dialed in. Currently, we are undergoing an extensive overhaul of our marketing strategy and collaborating with a new marketing group. Our goal is to develop new collateral and tools that will enhance the beta versions we will soon launch in the Chicago SCAI.

We will not provide the full Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) until metrics can be reliably obtained. We could, in theory, produce the FDD now and disclose that there are no robust performance metrics available. However, in the end, this will not help you create success. We believe that it is in everyone’s best interest to demonstrate fiscal success in the beta institute before creating the final franchise documentation. We commit to working towards this goal and releasing all franchise documentation prior to your graduation in February. We are going to demand a lot from you in order to open a franchise, and we are demanding a lot from ourselves for getting it right on our end.

We remain on track to start training this summer! The M3 training program will officially commence on August 1st, with hands-on training sessions taking place from September 17-23. The initial 6 months of the training program will conclude on February 1.

Membership 3 Options:


If qualified and accepted, you will sign a franchise agreement in November and open your own franchise after graduation.

This franchise model is not an IP model like HBL and M2. You can join Membership 3, but there is no guarantee that you will be eligible for a franchise. It will require a one-on-one interview and a competency evaluation in November before acceptance, and you will need to provide proof of the revenue required to launch a franchise business.

The cost to lease and brand the space and fully launch the business is still being determined, but the estimation is $20,000-$40,000. It will also require the ability to demonstrate a minimum of 3 months’ worth of living expenses and business operating cost (again these numbers are still being finalized, but expect a ballpark of $30,000-$50,000).


Work in a Source Code Alchemy Institute Franchise.

With this option, you would still be required to go through the full Membership 3 education and training. However, you would not be required (or allowed) to open a franchise. In other words, upon the successful completion of Option 2, your only qualification would be to work in a SCAI franchise owned by someone else.

Please understand the risk involved with this option – we want to be very clear. There is no guarantee of finding a franchise near you to use your skills in, and no guarantee of being hired even if there is one.


We understand that joining M3 is a massive commitment. You will need to deeply and intimately know this material – much, MUCH deeper than you know the HBL material. If now does not feel like the right time for you, we recommend continuing in M2 and joining M3 in the following year on August 1, 2024.

We also want to make this concession for you:

If your ultimate goal is to join Membership 3, and you know without a doubt that you will be ready to do so in 2024, we will allow you to end your involvement in Membership 2 now, and then join M3 in 2024. HOWEVER, if you discontinue M2 now, you will not be able to practice Higher Brain Living® while your M2 is paused, and you will not be able to return to M2 if you ultimately decide M3 is not for you, or you are not approved. At that point, the only way to return to M2 is to start from the beginning and go through PraxisAletheia again. Please do not make this decision lightly.

Membership 3


All information is Subject to change as new information is gathered.

The first six months of Membership 3 requires 10 hours per week*. After the first six months is completed, it requires 4 hours per week. Membership 3 will not be anything like Membership 2 – it is much more demanding. Missing/late assignments, not doing the exercises, etc. will not exist.

*If through PraxisAletheia, you did not deeply learn the SCM book, the deep concepts of SCM and 9ST, or fully participate and understand each step of the material and practices, then these first six months will take more time than 10 hours per week.
