The Modern Mystery School
The Modern Mystery School offers advanced spiritual training utilizing the tools, techniques, and traditions passed down from person to person since ancient times. This school traces its lineage back over 3,000 years to the time of King Salomon the Wise, who created the conditions for the amazing changes we can see around us in the world today. The Modern Mystery School supports us as we to come together to heal ourselves, our communities, and to reach toward self-mastery in this lifetime. Each student is invited to join us on a path of self discovery and spiritual progression, and can choose to focus on a specialty that suits their unique gifts and talents.
Starting the Journey
There are a few facts about a real mystery school someone should know. There are many imposters and groups that claim they’re a mystery school, but they lack a few essential elements. The Modern Mystery School itself has been likened to a University for the Soul, where the curriculum focuses on awakening and developing your highest potential, and on attaining divine awareness. We go beyond merely teaching; we help our students refine conscious potential, build focus, and activate their innate powers through a series of programs, classes, initiations, ceremonies, and sacred meditations. Specifically, we train students on how to expand awareness and tap into the power to bridge spiritual energies into the physical world for healing and total transformation. Our teachings are about true service.
However, in doing this, we must stress the importance of initiation, instruction, and lineage. These are keystones to a true mystery school; without them, one simply can not undertake such a wonderful journey with total success.
How Our Programs Are Structured
We know that, all too often, people are enticed by a “do it at home” program, or anything that is quick and easy. With something as important as knowing ourselves, though, you as a prospective student should understand that the work takes discipline, structure, and focus. It also takes time. After all it takes work to develop that essential relationship with ourselves that most of us aren’t even aware we don’t have.
Because of the vital importance of the self, our classes are based on in-person instruction. They are developed and taught in such a way so that you aren’t left without understanding an idea, or with loose ends that haven’t been tied. We want students to ask questions. We also love students to interact within their training. It’s all about inspiring you to reach further, jump higher, and understand more.
What makes us different?
A mystery school, traditionally, is an ancient school with closely held wisdom and teachings that have been preserved over the course of history. The Modern Mystery School (MMS), as such, traces its lineage back over 3,000 years to the time of King Salomon the Wise. It is one of the original mystery schools ever to exist on Earth.
Being ancient, our focus is on the mysteries; life produces so many of them: life and death, who and what is God, how does this universe work, etc.. Perhaps most important is helping you to crack the mystery of the self. We work to fill the gaping hole of absent knowledge for our students, in the hope – proven time and time again – that they will completely shed the old self and emerge empowered, knowledgeable, and at peace with the world. We do this not just through training but essentially through experience itself.
