Exploring The Mystics Path Into Your Soul
Exploring The Mystics Path Into Your Soul
In recent years, I have become devoted to teaching spiritual direction and contemporary mystical spirituality. It is my deep belief as a teacher, a medical intuitive, and a mystic that most people have been searching for a way to embrace the power of their soul for most of their life.
Perhaps you have not been conscious of that search, but that is because you are not familiar with the subtle tactics of the way the soul maneuvers in your psyche, your heart and even in your physical biology. For all the many ways we can describe this rapidly changing time in which we are living, I see this time as the era in which the consciousness of the soul is emerging as the core power of the human being.
A new understanding of the soul is essential, one that is based upon the truth that the soul is our mystical consciousness, not an object of religion.
I am passionate about teaching mystical consciousness and introducing people to the power of their soul. To accommodate this workshop theme, CMED and Alternatives UK have created a workshop experience in Spain that begins in Pamplona, a town on the famous Camino de Santiago, the long walk across Spain (or France or Portugal) to the Church of Saint James the Apostle in Santiago de Compostela.
We chose that town as the start of our workshop because of a legend associated with a Pilgrim. According to the legend, a Pilgrim, exhausted and thirsty from traveling the Camino, met a stranger, also traveling on the road. This stranger happened to be the Devil in disguise. The Devil offered to show the Pilgrim a hidden source of water but only on the condition that he renounce God, the Virgin Mary and Saint James. The Pilgrim refused even though it meant dying of thirst. At that moment, Saint James, also disguised as a Pilgrim, appeared and led him to that hidden fountain and using a scallop shell, he offered him water to drink.
Eventually pilgrims walking the Camino began to wear scallop shells around their necks, indicating that they were officially on a pilgrimage. For centuries, people were honor bound to offer food and shelter to people wearing the pilgrim’s shell out of respect for the holy journey, as hotels did not exist along the roads to Santiago de Compostela. People have walked these pilgrimages for over 1,000 years. And those caught wearing the shell under false pretenses as a way of entering homes to steal were put to death.
The Pilgrim’s shell is still the official icon of the holy journey. And so, we begin our holy journey at the place where the Pilgrim’s shell came into being.
The well-known monastery of Montserrat is the location for the main part of my workshop. It is a privilege to do a workshop in this monastery for so many reasons, not the least of which is that Montserrat is home to a revered Black Madonna, the patron saint of Catalonia. Montserrat is an active monastery and as such, the resident monks and priests observe a schedule of prayer that is signaled by the ringing of the bells from the bell tower, even through the night.
Because we are sharing the monastery atmosphere, I have written a prayer book for participants so that should the bells awaken you, you have the option of joining in the monastic practice of praying during specific times of the day and night.
Mysticism is about the experience of the nature of the Divine. My approach to this workshop is that participants enter into the experience of their soul. The lecture topics covered during our journey together will include:
- The nature of your soul
- How your soul communicates
- Soul appetites
- Spiritual versus psychological crises
- Contemporary mystical experiences
- Mystical laws
- The power of grace and prayer
- Applying Mystical laws to health/happiness and sanity
- Developing mystical consciousness
I believe mystical consciousness is our most refined intelligence and that we exist in partnership with the Sacred and with all of creation. I hope you will join me on this inner and outer journey to Spain.
Due to the sacred theme of this workshop and my choice of venue, enrollment will be limited to a moderate-sized group.
Ticketing for this event is through the Myss.com, not Alternatives, therefore we are unable to apply Membership or other discounts in this case.
