One of the world's leading values profiling technologies built upon the Minessence Values Framework is the powerhouse behind the Magma Effect approach.

Containing 128 distinct human values, the MVF is a thorough exploration of the energy laden ideas that have resonance for adults of all ages, from all walks of life and engaged in any field of activity.

You can learn more about the MVF here.

Jackie Le Fevre of Magma Effect is a founding director of the Minessence International Cooperative with responsibility for contributing to the development of new applications for the MVF and the licensing of new MVF practitioners.
