Contributing Teachers
In The Mystery School
The Mystery School for a New Paradigm is happy to announce the participating of five contributing teachers in addition to our founder Jeff Carreira, who will each be contributing their wisdom and expertise to our community. Each of the contributing teachers holds a unique perspective that plays an import role in an overall shift in paradigm. Our contributing teachers will offer quarterly workshops (sometimes held live, sometimes pre-recorded) exclusively for the benefit of our Members Circle.

Jeff Carreira

Founder and Guiding Teacher

Jeff Carreira is a mystical philosopher and spiritual guide. He is the author of eleven books on meditation and philosophy. He teaches online programs and leads retreats throughout the world that teach people how to let go of their current perceptual habits so they are free to participate in the creation of a new paradigm. To put it simply, he supports people to live a spiritually inspired life, free from the constraints of fear, worry and self-doubt, and aligned with their own deepest sense of meaning and purpose.

New Paradigm Education

Dorothy Walters

Contributing Teacher

Dorothy Walters, PHD, taught college level English and American literature as well as Women's Studies in various Midwestern universities for most of her professional life. In 1981, at age 53, she experienced spontaneous Kundalini awakening, with little or no prior knowledge or experience in such things as yoga or meditation. This event was the beginning of a long process, which led her through many subsequent episodes of ecstasy and pain as the energies sought to balance and integrate within.
