Six thought-provoking dialogs revealing the power of Mystery Schools to change the future.

This symposium is an extended exploration of the many ways that mystery schools are alive and active today, and the role that we can play in shaping the future of this world.

A mystery school is a gathering of pioneering individuals working together to dramatically shift the course of the future.

Deep inside many of us know that something wonderful is possible for this world, but none of us can create that future on our own - it can only be done together. 

We can learn how to support and teach each other so we can tap into the hidden sources of love and wisdom that wait for us in the heart and mind of the cosmos.

Together we can awaken each other to our true potential and unlock the higher human capacities that will change everything for everyone.

This symposium is an extended exploration of that incredible possibility. 

“It requires a very unusual mind to undertake the analysis of the obvious.”
~ Alfred North Whitehead

Throughout history there have always been small groups of people who wake up together and recognize how they have been bound up in limited views and assumptions of the current paradigm handed down in the form of social norms and cultural agreements.

Seeing these constraints ignites a burning desire for liberation. In every age these adventurous souls have gathered together to explore new ideas, new perceptions, and new ways of being. The Gnostic Schools of the Christian tradition, the ancient Greek schools, the artists and thinkers of The Renaissance and The Enlightenment, and the many creative circles of the past two centuries - throughout history, the world over, you find gatherings of ordinary individuals who change the course of history by establishing new ways of being. Often these gatherings are referred to as Mystery Schools.

Mystery Schools are gatherings right now all over the world. In this symposium you will learn about how they operate and why they will change the world.

In the broadest sense, a Mystery School is a group of people engaging in practices and study that liberate them from the hypnotic spell of the seemingly obvious and unquestionable reality that they were born into. These individuals can now work together to continue to inspire, support and propel each other to give birth to a new future.

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.”
~ Margaret Mead

Mystery schools are the incubators of the future.

The Mystery School for a New Paradigm Online Symposium brings together six extraordinary individuals, among them, scholars, spiritual adepts, mystics, philosophers, and artists. Each voice illuminates a different understanding of how mystery schools can shift the paradigm we live in.

Starting on November 9, you will receive one audio seminar each day for six days. Each day will feature a dialog with one of our special guest speakers, but this is more than a collection of audio dialogs.

Each of the seminars in this Symposium includes:

  • An introductory video from Jeff Carreira that contextualizes the seminar.
  • A written introduction to the seminar that describes what you are about to hear and how it relates and adds to the overarching conversation of the symposium as a whole.
  • An in-depth dialog conducted by Jeff Carreira with the featured speaker that explores the significance of mystery schools for the world.
  • 3 supplemental resources (including: short audio clips, video clips and written essays) that add more depth and richness to the seminar.
