So here you are.
Your heart has opened. You have an instinctive sense of compassion.
At the same time, your psychic abilities have woken up and you find yourself sensitive to energies and atmospheres, perhaps with some mystic intuitions and impressions.
Where do you go now?
In the Greco-Roman culture two thousand years ago, you would have sought entrance to one of the Mystery Schools. There, through ritual, sacred drama and direct teaching, you would have been introduced to the Mysteries.
Across the world, other traditions were providing similar mystic and esoteric trainings, but using different ceremonies and symbols. Look to the Druids, or Taoists, or Hopis, for examples.
In this blog I want to suggest some features of a contemporary Mystery School.
First though we need to recognise some profound transformations that have happened in our social and cultural circumstances. These developments must, in my opinion, be influential. Let me briefly list them. They are fairly obvious, but often we do not appreciate their implications for spiritual study.
- Global Village
The first shift is that we now live in a global village of shared knowledge. It is no longer possible for any school or teacher to claim any special access to wisdom and spiritual connection, when there are hundreds, perhaps thousands, of other schools and teachers, some of them very good. A thousand years ago we could travel thirty miles on a good day to find a teacher. Today we can travel anywhere digitally in the blink of an eye or click of a keyboard.
- No More Secrets
Second, the core secrets of the Mystery Schools are now open knowledge. Historically these secrets were only divulged privately, usually after an initiation. Today they are commonplace in movies, television shows and books. Here is my brief digest of these once esoteric secrets:
- Within and behind the material world perceived by our five senses, is a more subtle world of energies, patterns and archetypes. They influence and determine the material world. We can develop senses to perceive them more fully.
- Using imagination, thought and other strategies it is possible to cooperate with and influence this subtle world and its manifestations.
- We are not just material human beings with one life, but we are souls on a long journey of learning and development; and we are supported by souls who are further along this path. More love. More compassion. More connection. More consciousness.
- Hierarchy to Democracy
Finally we have also to acknowledge a profound change that is happening in social and cultural structures. There is a general shift from top-down, often bullying, hierarchical leadership, towards democratic communities of networked and equal individuals. Seniorities by virtue of age, birth, gender, ordination or lineage, are being replaced by egalitarian mutual respect and natural wisdom. You will recognise that this particular shift is currently creating friction, as old hierarchies have trouble accepting this new reality.
Given these substantial shifts – not to mention astrological and cosmic dynamics – how then might we imagine a contemporary Mystery School? What might its features be?
Here are a few ideas.
The applicant to a Mystery School needs to self-assess as meeting these criteria:
- My heart has opened and I prioritise compassion.
- I have a sense of connection with a benevolent cosmic mystery (known by many names.)
- I have a sense of subtle energies, patterns and archetypes.
- I am humble in the face of this wondrous cosmos.
- I am responsible for myself.
Now to the curriculum. Here is a brief list of what I suggest would be the essential components of a contemporary Mystery School.
- Spiritual Experience
Using person-centred teaching methods each student is enabled into a deepening daily practice of spiritual connection.
- Reflective Psychology
Students learn the psychological dynamics of spiritual development and how to manage them. Bliss to shadow – and back again.
- Esoteric Meditation
Students learn how to be quiet scanners and receptors, wisely guiding and assessing subtle sensations and impressions.
- Soul’s Journey
Before birth, through life and after death, students explore the nature and purpose of this journey.
Students understand their own psychic interpretive mechanism, and how best to manage and develop it.
- A Map of Subtle Dimensions and Beings
Students explore and develop maps of subtle dimensions and beings.
- Compassionate Magic and Energy Work
Students learn how to cooperate with and influence subtle energies to the benefit of all.
The course, I imagine, would need to last between one and three years. After that, everyone would be supported in an ongoing community of peer support and lifelong learning.
The teachers would need to be people who themselves practise and have experience of the topics. Most importantly they would be emotionally intelligent and could teach-facilitate in a way that respects each student’s individuality and learning style. The guru-acolyte model would be replaced with mutual respect and collegiality in the context of experiential learning.
So those are my thoughts.
In fact, I have been pondering a modern mystery school for decades and waiting for such a school to appear.
Years ago l would have applied to be a student.
Today I might have the chutzpah to apply to be on the faculty. I once thought that the Findhorn Foundation might be a Mystery School. Perhaps it still could be.
Over the years I have also noticed a few esoteric schools, but they have all been glued to a particular teacher or teaching, and have not practised, in my opinion, a holistic and contemporary method of student-centred learning.
Good education, including spiritual and esoteric education, builds on personal experience and not, in my opinion, on sacred texts. Authoritative and sacred texts, though, can be crucially helpful in unpacking and expanding personal experience, but this requires teachers who are wise facilitators and not proselytising a particular tradition.
One thing we need to hold in our hearts about mystery schools is their purpose. They enable independent and self-managing adults, who are supported on the Path of Liberation, to the service of all.
All of that said, maybe it is sufficient for life itself to be the Mystery School.
On the other hand, a helping hand from loving companions is always useful.
More love. More compassion. More connection. More consciousness.
AMORC is, to me, a modern and up to date Egyptian Mystery School. I have been a member for 25+ years.
So interesting, loving all the comments.What would a mystery school be for future generations?/ For me ,focusing in on words of insight , poetry, music, sacred geometry silence with nature and the unseen worlds. , with guidance and sharing , going deeper , yes definitely up for all of it!. Findhorn could be a place for this . I’m open and hopeful.
I’m excited that you’ve given thought, energy, time to pondering this over the years, it gives me hope that someone else believes there’s still room in this life to include what most matters.
I graduated as a spiritual companion in 2018, what I learnt continues to support me daily, thank you 💜
Thank you so much, William for your thoughts and ideas for a modern mystery school.
I had often wondered what the ancient mystery schools would have taught & find that I have been learning & experiencing a number of these points over the course of a number of years.
When reading of the entrance requirements, I was struck by the omission of some sort of ‘responsibility’ to the world outside one’s self and would welcome it said explicitly, I realise that it may be implicit in the other statements.
Having learned with you recently, I remember major religions’ criticism of modern spirituality being too self-centred & your response that we need to pass our love on to others (my interpretation of what I remember hearing).
My idea would be to include something along the lines of:
I am willing to learn for the benefit of all beings including myself.
My response to what I hear you calling for, also touches me to say I would be willing to assist in some way in the development of a mystery school (though not the faculty as yet).
Since our World is now a global village, it seems to me affiliations with other mystery schools across the globe, including Findhorn, would also be beneficial to all.
With heartfelt love & thanks,
William, everything you wrote about the potential of a Contemporary Mystery School resonates with me deeply. There have been many programs catching my eye lately, but this would be first on my list.
In 1998 my husband and I at the invitation of Maya Elder Hunbatz Men founded The Sun and Serpent Mysteries School U.k. As interest in 2012 grew we not only diseminated traditional Maya Calender information, but the deeper teachings too. It took the form of regular open meetings, training the focalizers of the future, opening our hearts to the wider mysteries. We held large fundraising events and consistently gave back to Mayan projects, right up to the present day. I believe that without exception everyone who participated has gone on in strength and understanding on their soul path. Today we do not meet together as we are spread around the world but are firmly bonded in friendship.
So, yes, it was beneficial for us to have a Mayan focus and a number of focalizers (not teachers) but the mysteries were always universal.
Sending Love and support to you William.
Thank you, dear William, this is a very inspiring piece which has got me pondering intensely over the past days. My heart yearns for a contemporary mystery school and throughout my life I have been wondering and wandering in search for such a sanctuary. The deep longing to be nourished and to equally contribute to forms of nourishment that serve humanity and the unfoldment of consciousness in times of crises has always been with me and never left me.
I cherish, and have acted upon, several of the features and characteristics put forward such as a student-centred learning approach that calls attention to the principle that authority is the ability to author life in others, and in ourselves.
I too have queried whether the Findhorn Foundation could host the mystery school I have been craving and begging to manifest. I have accompanied a friend in editing materials offering guidance and promoting learning communities. As a former educational psychologist working in higher education, I have accompanied numerous colleagues in designing the courses and programmes jam-packed with innovative student-centred teaching practices they would have liked to take when they were students. And, last but not least, in the past months I have been curating my own teachings and spiritual practices.
It is the final section of the post which cracks me open and takes me to a new level of awareness.
I know of the ardent student in me always eager to participate in pioneering ventures. I know of the passionate teacher in me longing to hang out in the faculty staff room with like-minded and like-oriented colleagues. I acknowledge my yearning for the contemporary mystery school so eloquently described here to manifest. And this is where I pause and take a deep breath so as to step back from my usual patterned thoughts. It is no longer about being a diligent student or a dedicated teacher. The time has come for me to become the contemporary mystery school that I have been dreaming about all my life.
More pausing, and more deep breathing.
As I stand on the edge and settle in the liminal space opened through my musings, I begin to listen to the vatic whisper calling me forth to give birth to a contemporary mystery school. Here I stand in the fear of failing, in the sweeping solitude that creeps in begging me to retract to a more comfortable place, that of the zealous student or the committed teacher. On the faultline made of my desires clashing with my fears, I acknowledge that what I most desire is also what I most fear. Will there be students willing to enrol in the courses and programmes? Will I attract other faculty members prepared to join me in designing and delivering the teachings and practices?
At first this feels a very lonely place to stand in and yet it is here that I can truly bear witness to the paradoxes and stand in the prophetic position which is mine to uphold. The post gently nudged me towards the conversation, however tantalising and contradictory, and just as gently it held me firmly in the shakiness of the inquiry.
With gratitude and deep love,
I have read your email over and over and am very intrigued by the idea. I live in the US, where the “sacred text” is all-important in Christianity, and even the more esoteric and compassionate streams seem to feel some need to acknowledge or invoke it. I have been wondering if this is necessary.
I am concerned about the cost, even if it’s online. It has to cost something, but most people won’t be able to afford it.
A short response to your ‘longer piece’ YES, followed by YES followed by Yes Please.
It might be called “Wisdom”, maybe, instead of “Mystery”?
The school would require the utmost seriousness from both masters and students. And an uncompromising devotion to the Truth in all things. No space for curiosity, intellectualism, or anything created by society (e.g., culture, ideology, etc.). Most texts and classes would probably be short and direct, leading to Truth or not worth existing. Just the Serious could apply.
Thank you, William for your wonderful thoughts and I too would be interested in such a ‘mystery school’. It’s something I’ve been hoping will show up rather than have been actively looking for. Sacred texts hold interesting ideas, I’m sure, but are not something I’ve studied. My experience of ‘mystery’ is from being alive and all that entails. To be alive is to be spiritual (for me) and there is still so much to explore – I’m just at the tip of the iceberg. It would be good to be part of a community that could take this exploration forward with acceptance and respect for where each of us is on this journey. I am not interested in a therapeutic community (although, of course, participants may be healed along the way) or being told what to think, be or do, by those who have studied more than I have. But I would be really excited to delve into the mysteries together and discover through ‘light bulb’ moments what this life really is. There is, of course, a very big possibility that I may just discover there’s even more I don’t know.
Thank you, William, for this exciting piece. I especially like what you say about the use (and abuse) of texts. (I also agree with what someone wrote above re: cutting-edge science’s convergence with modern spirituality as a core curriculum item…and draw attention to David Lorimer and the the “Scientific and Medical Network” in this regard).
The nearest thing to what you describe that I’ve tasted is David and Julie Spangler’s amazing and luminous Lorian…though that does of course have to function as an online “school”.
I’d certainly be interested in participating, somehow, in some movement based in the UK, especially if your hand was on the tiller.
Thank you so much for this William, and for your weekly emails of wisdom and encouragement. This is the first time I’ve responded after being on your mailing list for quite a while – I just want to say how grateful I am for your sharing – a real lifeline when, like today, I’d been floundering (and not very coherent!). So : a big thank you xxxx
Thank you for your thoughts William.
I am not sure about the word “school”, or indeed the word “mystery”, as others have already commented to you. I would welcome an opportunity to connect in loving kindness and compassion to offer positive energy to the Earth in her crisis of war and climate and ecological disasters. This would need to be a safe space and held by experienced “teachers”. I am not interested in any particular religious background, or any particular identity: this for me would be for anyone providing their hearts were open in a loving kindness focus, and we learned how to protect ourselves from destructive forces which seem to me to be all around both globally, nationally, and in our communities.
I know that Heart Math practice regular focussed meditations for the Earth and I am sure that there are many other groups working to raise consciousness(Tree Sisters is another, and where I live we have our own small weekly vigil for the Earth – organised by extinction rebellion).. I would like to be part of something global in a safe forum. Heart Math are researching Earth energy and Heart energy. There has been reference made above to the discoveries of modern science in the quantum field and this too is exciting and interesting.
I understand peoples’ objections to zoom, but for me there is something powerful in not positioning a “school” in any one particular place anywhere. We need to come together, and not be separated by the problems of travelling etc. Provided everyone has access to zoom it becomes an inclusive forum for people everywhere. On the other hand travelling implies pilgrimage………???
It sounds like something is brewing for you William 😊
And that you have given much thought and feeling of how to create a community to enable others to understand the mysteries of our world and beyond. I think some of the learnings need to include an understanding of the materialist systems that we live in and the challenge it brings to those on a mystical or spiritual path. Also in the psychological I believe we need integrate the mind-body-psyche connections and how we can master this through breathwork and somatic approaches. Gaining mastery not only over our thoughts but our bodies and emotions too. Maybe an understanding of how science is catching up on what the ancients have known for eons.ie Psychoneuroimmunology. Don’t you just love how science has to give its rubber stamp of approval to make something true. Sorry a bit of sarcasm there.
Linked to your comments on the information available I feel spirituality and mysticism have become another materialistic conglomerate system that pulls people in to belong. I feel we need to be made aware of how we can get pulled into our spiritual ego and the need to be seen as spiritual or of a heightened awareness. Ie “I am more spiritual (and special) than you”. How we can get sucked into this by the information and products available to us now. Ie crystals, candles, sage, tarot cards.
I only say this because I am one of those sucked into this but am starting to realise the real mystery is around us all the time in the kindness, compassion and love we feel and show ourselves and others, in the natural world and the small simple delights of life that we forget including the connection to all ambient life around us.
Good luck with it all 🙏🏼✨😊
I loved your words, that life itself is the mystery school.
Thank you for this magically sober offer of a Mystery school, Wiliam. If ever you gather some level headed enourmous hearted , sensitive guides, i would be love to continue my path with your vision. One request, not financially crazy price,= i see too much advertised at exorbitant prices whch immediately repels me for some reason!
Trust this note finds you all well.
Without being ‘glib’ or ironic – i think your idea is EXACTLY why so many adults resonated so deeply with Harry P. We ‘remember’ said schools and yearn for a framework/structure from where we can learn (or perhaps more correctly, remember) to reconnect with ourselves and the wondrous cosmos.
I agree. I thought/hoped Findhorn was that place, and believe it was growing into that, until it wasn’t.
There is definitely a place for a Mystery School, contemporary by virtue it is being created/re-imagined now.
I love this idea William.
This contemporary mystery school conception could become compulsory education for the mature student in a sane world.
Another sizzling hot article – you are on fire 🔥
I would love to be involved/would join…have been looking for something like this for a long time. I would also value a sacred text element, i.e. some discussion of teachings and various wisdom traditions from an esoteric/ecumenical perspective.
Good evening William. An interesting synchronicity in finding your writings throwing light on the contemporary mystery school. I had been scrolling back through my emails with the aim of finding one from TheWayOfTruthMysterySchool.org then your email was there…. The old saying fits… when the student is ready the teacher appears… or is it the yearning of the soul for growth, expansion, highering consciousness, yet the dynamic changes and the egalitarian flavour offer tantalising tastes for further evolution?
Do it …
After much research I have not found a place where I would feel free but safe
not having to fit a pre conceived model of spirituality
It is needed , on many levels for us as individuals and our communities
I’m in already
Believing this will come to fruition
I was privileged to spend a little time with one of the great spiritual teachers, Swami Satchidananda (the “Woodstock Guru”). One of my friends was a devotee and the first time I met “Sachi” was in her home. Sachi was very much into “sacrifice” and he was talking about it with two of the guests when I walked into the kitchen of my friend’s home. They left and for a few moments, I was alone with the teacher.
I could feel his presence and compassion and felt what might be called the “burden of my sins” or considerations and deficiencies when it came to sacrifice and giving of myself. I asked him “How do I practice sacrifice?” He laughed and pointed at a pot on the stove which was just starting to boil and asked me,”Timmie, you see that pot over there?” I told him I did and he asked “What would you do if you went to the stove and picked that hot pot up?” I answered, “I’d probably drop it” and he laughed and said, “Sacrifice is like dropping the pot. When the time comes and you are ready, you will drop it”.
The “pot” is about to boil. How many of us are ready to drop it?
Reading this ancient and wonderful book is helping me to finally become willing to let go:
Talking about holy places and spiritual communities, for some, including William Blake, Glastonbury was or is “holy ground” and could be the site of “New Jerusalem”. Right now, it is the site of the antithesis of the heavenly city — a pagan bacchanal known as the Glastonbury Music Festival. Before we could hope to bring heaven down to earth, as Eileen and Peter Caddy did, we must be willing to purify our hearts and replace the corruption and self-serving exemplified by the Festival with service to others.
I think your mystery school is a wonderful idea. The bare bones are there and you’ve thought it all through but pulling it all together is a long-term project. Why not start with a book with contributions from the teachers relevant to the modules you’ve listed and then people can study at home with an on-line community to support? The real-time school can grow from that.
Thank you for all the wisdom that you share
I would apply for sure. Can this be held on zoom? Or a hybrid model?
I am so so ready!! Such a coincidence, I’ve been researching the ancient ones recently and longing for such to be available now.
Will there be a psychedelic component?
(Please please please someone make this happen!🙏🙏🙏❤️ )
Sounds like a lot of us would sign up straight away! Life is a great teacher and I certainly have found many teachers and spiritual friends along the way, but a more focused spiritual school would be a real blessing. I have been on several of William ‘s online courses and think it could work well through that medium.
Thank you for you and all that you offer.
In 1952 I had a near death experience in which I was stripped of every thing. No body, no thought, no light,
Since the I have been singularly blessed with miracles of grace – a 6 year scholarship to Oxford’s medical school, 3 years living in Indian Ashrams by invitation… and on.
What I find offered by you is not an authoritarian teacher but a spiritual friend.
So what I find you suggesting is not a school – the supposition of teachers that give and students that receive, but a community of friends who share. Even a 2 year old child has much to give. So we are looking at a true democracy of sharing.
‘Mystery’ risks attracting those who seek the esoteric. I am more comfortable with kindness, compassion, care of all creation – commuinity of Kindness would do.
Much love to you all, Bruce
I recently had a dream that culminated in what I knew, upon waking, was a Wisdom Center – in my dream it was for women, and felt both ancient and contemporary. I’m not going into the details of the dream. I’m in the US and it’s time for women to stand up and speak out and act – yet in order to do this is a strong, grounded way, there is inner work to be done to awaken and strengthen our energy centers and speak without fear. For me, an awareness of my Celtic/Druidic ancestry going back, back, back through the fear, through the fires, through the losses of sacred groves and even further back to access what I have learned through those lifetimes so it will be available to me when needed (even if I don’t literally “know” until I need to, if that makes any sense) . . . I keep seeing in my mind’s eye, photos of Native women at Standing Rock, protesting the pipeline, standing strong, not backing down, with such a fierce, yet compassionate energy that was palpable even just in a photo – that’s the energy, the groundedness that Earth/Gaia (all living beings) needs now, and that women can give and be. On line helps, yes, but ultimately we need to come together in our places, in circles of healing, love, and power. In this way we will have the possibility of transformation.
I love this idea and I do hope you find a way to manifest it. Of course you must be on the staff and I think it is key that the school includes every imaginable cultural teaching. I am still reeling from meeting an aboriginal healer some years ago.
It is something very dear to my heart that I have always wanted something of this kind to be there for anyone in time of need and who wished to explore spirituality.
Thank you WILLIAM …as always your words are profound and loving. I would love to be part of this. I am currently training as an interfaith minister with The One Spirit foundation & that is a wonderful community respectful of all faiths, but still too centred on in my opinion in outdated religious beliefs, although to connect with others it is important to have an understanding of the faith path/spiritual backgrounds. There are so many souls “waking up” but many like myself get shaken & lonely, buffeted by bigotry, but have a strong inner guidance.
Love to all fellow pathfinders
Wow, yes! I would immediately apply.
I wonder if you have considered the idea of opening such a school? Yes, that you would be on the staff is unquestionable— but perhaps spearheading the birth of such a ‘School’! I love that it would not be glued to one teacher or to one set of teachings.
I had a very significant dream about the mother Archetype inviting me to the table last night and then received this email this morning! It is something very dear to my heart and I have always wanted something of this kind to be there for anyone in time of need and who wished to explore spirituality. This is the kind of connection of reaffirming thoughts I had with the Cygnus review many years ago, when it was not easy to find any information. I would have loved a mystery school to sign up to help explain many things. Of course, I wanted to know everything at once and I think now a mystery school would have given me a firm understanding that it was all doable in good time. Being particularly skint I believed that it was how it was meant to be and it was Gods way of saying the best things and teachings were free. It was through Cygnus that I found William Bloom when it became a matter of urgency and joined his Spiritual Companion course and went on to study a Jungian Psychotherapy. These were very valuable resources for me.
Wow, yes, so like my own journey. Cygnus has been a lifeline to me for years and is also how I discovered William and his wise and helpful teachings. I’d sign up for such a school straight away!
I think this is a great idea, and very welcome!
Excellent post! I’d suggest another component of the curriculum could be the science angle and an appreciation of how cutting edge science is now converging on spiritual understandings, albeit using its own language.
How wonderful. Yes I agree. I tried to find something similar over 40 years ago for myself. Nowadays having hobbled my way through many spiritual doctrines, mostly self learning though some wonderful teachers too, I quietly teach a few individuals on their terms i.e. they bring questions or queries as and when they wish. I never set this up it kind of organically evolved as a form of spiritual mentorship. I have just built a small studio and am starting to teach meditation in a myriad of forms alongside creative work.
I feel that all pathways are good pathways as long as the intention is correct.
Love is consciousness and consciousness is love.
(My other hat has been as a cranial osteopath, acupuncturist and healer plus other modalities such as Reiki master for nearly 28 years. I relinquished my osteopathic title this year due mainly to Coronavirus pressures but continue in practice with same professionalism and full insurance etc in Dorset though I have shut down my website and yellow pages entry)
I would love to be involved if you keep being led this way.
Love and Blessings
This sounds really good, I would apply too.
I also think you need to think about practises to help integrate the shadow side to spiritual growth. S. Grof Spiritual emergence/emergency. The Dark night of the soul and blocks on the path
Thank you for putting in to words such a beautiful concept which made so much sense to me. It gave me comfort and a deep feeling of connection just reading your words.
A school of mystery would be sublime and divine. Where do I sign : )
Very beautifully put William! I was reading the book by Tom Kenyon who channels ‘The Hathors’, and they said that whilst in ancient Egyptian temples, spiritual challenges for aspirants were approached generally in order from easy to very difficult, we don’t have the advantage of that regulation any more. Now daily life is our ‘Temple’ and I take that to mean that lessons may come without warning and in any order! My heart relaxed when I read that. Perhaps the ‘Mystery School of Life’ already exists.
Yes, more and more compassion for everyone around us and across the globe, but also for ourselves.
Much love to you William, Ann
Good morning William
I would apply to such a School.
It feels right! It feels aligned and congruent.
Have a blessed week
I think a modern Mystery School is just what is needed right now. I hope you can go ahead with it. It is a brilliant idea.
I think this is a brilliant idea and just where I am at right now. However, I am interested in person to person human contact. No more zoom for me as I ease myself off the internet and back to nature and all she offers.
Let’s go for it!!
No zoom for me thanks ! Surely real human interaction is vital for such a project ?
My thoughts exactly Ceri.
Good morning William,
I imagine that such a school would be expensive.
I do think that life is a mystery school as you say.
But also the internet is a veritable smorgasbord of offerings.
This can offer us much Information and deep learning.
But I don’t believe that this offers us accountability or discipline and taps into that part of human nature which is flighty, self absorbed and self opinionated.
So… what to do?
Thankyou for your offerings they are much appreciated.
Would love one. Have long searched for one with goodness at its heart and not seekers of siddhis and the power that comes from this knowledge and these experiences. Sadly, mystery schools often attract people who are not on the right-hand path, so I have avoided them. But as someone who has gone through an awakening and had their world turned upside down, it’s often impossible for people like us to afford to pay much, if anything. We may be in relationship breakdowns, have health issues, lost our job or struggling to work because of the awakening–so many are in awakening emergencies or are coming out of them that could use this guidance. I wish there were a mystery school that were reciprocal in nature or believed in a transfer of other energies, rather than just finances, as it often excludes the people who need it most. So, for example, volunteering could be done, if the applicant didn’t have funds. Thank you for opening this conversation.
Good morning William, over the years I have tried various schools, but keep coming up against their limits as you say ‘glued to a particular teacher or teaching’ so a Mystery School ticks all the right boxes, much love
why should it be called “Mystery School”? Are we not talking about skills to be acquired for a more fulfilling life on this planet…on all levels…physical, mental,emotional,spiritual… to enable us to navigate the challenges of being in a human body and expand our consciousness before departing on, to the next adventure… Where is the Mystery in all this?…
Is there a need to use this word and why?
I’ve been looking for a facility like you describe for a while. I’d like to be involved.
Findhorn would be excellent place for this as it’s ethos is well known. Then again that may be a hindrance when trying to develop something ‘other’ independent of what has become mainstream. I would be extremely interested in this though -especially if sited in Scotland. The time is right.
I have doubts. Findhorn now does not seem to be the Findhorn that once was.
It’s a mystery why anyone would not want to be part of this! I’m in x
I think a school like this could be a catalyst for helping more individuals to grow and reach their potential as you describe…and build the foundation of an important network. One not tethered to a rigid belief system or individual/guru.
Good Morning William, I am wondering if you are considering developing a mystery school yourself?
Good Morning William, I am wondering if you are considering developing such a school yourself?
This is exactly the sort of place I am looking for. Thank you William, let me know when you start taking students.
Good morning William I would be applying immediately should such a school exist.
