Isn’t it a shame that basic education in most places today rarely includes education about the self? More often than not, people enter adulthood with some grounding in math and reading but few answers to crucial questions such as:
- Who am I?
- Why are we here?
- What is my life purpose?
- How do I create abundance?
- What would make me happy?
- What are my natural gifts?
- How can I find a job that excites me?
- How do I create healthy relationships in my life?
- How can I feel more confident about myself?
- How do I become a good leader?
- What’s the most effective way to relieve suffering in the world?
- How can I become the person I want to be?
Ancient people asked these questions, too – that’s how mystery schools were born! Mystery schools are schools of life, places of higher learning where students receive the education that helps them become masters of their own destinies.
It’s no coincidence that many famous people have been mystery school initiates. When you gain mastery over yourself, when you understand your gifts, when you know how to fix your weaknesses, success flows. You become an active creator in your universe instead of getting dragged with the tide.
Every student’s story is unique, but generally people come to a mystery school because:
- They feel an inner calling to learn about themselves and the true nature of the world, OR
- They already feel pretty successful in life, but they’re ready to take their success to the next level.
“What qualities should I look for in a mystery school?”
With a wealth of resources at our fingertips, it can feel overwhelming to find a place worthy of our time, attention and money. Advanced spiritual training is an important investment in ourselves, perhaps one of the most important we can make, and we deserve something of quality in return!
From experience, we have found it important to consider the following characteristics when choosing a mystery school:
- Lineage. If you were seeking education in any other field, you would seek out the schools with a long-standing tradition of excellence. A mystery school is no different! We don’t want New Age; we want Old Age, something that’s been around for a long time and whose teachings are accurate, unbroken and true. If a tool has been working for people for 3,000 years, you know it will work for you, too.
- Teachers, not gurus. Any teacher worth his salt should encourage his students to make their own choices and learn from their mistakes. A good teacher will not put herself on a pedestal but will say that you, too, can attain mastery. She serves as an example of what you can become. In short, a quality spiritual teacher doesn’t want you worshiping him … he wants to see you become your own guru! This is where true empowerment lies!
- Hands-on learning. One reason education today has failed us is due to the emphasis on theory over experience. Knowledge is important, too, of course, but self-awareness requires experience so that knowledge can transform into wisdom. A mystery school education should therefore include a hands-on, experiential classroom setting.
- Joy! Self-discovery should be fun! Are your teachers and classmates typically happy? Do they help build other people up? Are you excited about the course material? Is your training improving your quality of life, your understanding of self, your productivity, your day-to-day existence? This is crucial!
Our #1 choice: the Modern Mystery School
When it came time for us to pick someplace for our education, we ultimately chose the Modern Mystery School, which met the above criteria and ultimately exceeded our expectations. After 10 years of study in MMS, we now offer our community the same workshops and healing tools that have so enriched our lives.
Some benefits of the Modern Mystery School include:
- A 3,000-year old lineage. The school’s teachings have been passed down unchanged since the time of King Salomon, who gathered this knowledge and began training the school’s first students. Other students in the Salomonic lineage have included William Shakespeare, Nikola Tesla, Carl Jung, Joan of Arc, Israel Regardie, Rudolf Steiner and the Beatles.
- Quality teachers and healers. Everyone in the Modern Mystery School began where you are now – we understand what other people are going through because we’ve been there ourselves, and we want to help you reach your goals, whatever they may be! Teachers and healers undergo extensive training and yearly certification to ensure that quality and performance remain high.
- A network of 40 countries. As the school records transcripts for use across the world, students can choose from a wide variety of locations for their studies based on their time and money requirements. This means no time lost or having to repeat classes, which means flexibility for your busy life. While there are certain prerequisites, for the most part you can choose what you wish to study. Students come from all 5 continents, making MMS a global village.
- Empowerment through self-awareness. An MMS education encourages people to use the tools taught in the classroom to better understand their needs and desires, as well as the weaknesses holding them back, so they can create the life they want. So many of us have been programmed by parents and school about who we are and how we must be, so we don’t even know our true selves beyond the labels we’ve been given!
- A holistic learning experience. The curriculum emphasizes development of the heart as well as the brain, with the goal of creating not just great minds but humanitarians. If you want to become a mover and shaker, mystery school training helps.
“Where do I begin?”
The important question is, where would YOU like to begin? What excites you? When you envision your life 6 weeks from now, how do you want it to look? YOU are the one in the driver’s seat so ultimately you’re the one who has to be happy with your choices!
Anyone is welcome to register for our workshops, which are open to the public and generally have no prerequisites. You should be aware that you also have the option of going very deep with your studies at the Modern Mystery School, similar to what’s available at a college or university.
If you want to bring your natural gifts to the surface or are unsure which direction to go, we recommend starting with Life Activation. Many people start with this because of the clarity and deep understanding it brings.
If you want to reclaim your true power as a god/goddess and live your highest purpose while here on Earth, we recommend the Empower Thyself initiation – much more than a workshop, it’s one of the most transformational teaching experiences we offer.
Because everyone’s needs and interests vary, we also offer a free 1/2 hour phone consultation to those who know there’s something more to this life and are ready to explore with sacred tools like healing, meditation and living with joy! We can discuss your goals and based on that make recommendations to you.
