What Is a True Mystery School?


“At the end of the twentieth century or soon after the new mystery schools of the future will come into existence…”  Djwal Khal

We are noticing that more and more people are searching for true mystery school teachings in a world where we are bombarded by information and where anybody can claim to be an expert in anything. It can be tricky to recognise authentic spiritual, magical and mystery teachings -whether in person or online. 

In the Aquarian age ancient mystery schools are taking on a new form and can help you to acquire powerful spiritual knowledge and to play an active, intelligent and purposeful role in creating a brighter future.



A true mystery school provides a comprehensive teaching and systematic initiatory structure that facilitates spiritual growth, evolutionary development and skill acquisition.

Traditionally those who set foot on the healing, shamanic, magical and spiritual pathways were required to go through a series of initiatory experiences or rites of passage. In the past these initiations were often very physical in nature, in some cases even life-threatening. They were designed to facilitate the development of soul strength and enable the soul to access spiritual power and acquire greater soul capacity. 

Each initiatory experience was designed to incrementally destroy the false ego in order to enable the person to develop and acquire enhanced healing, shamanic, magical and spiritual capacities and to enable increased levels of high frequency or ‘high tension’ power to flow in and through the being without any impediment or deflection. The ultimate objective being the re-establishing one’s relationship with one’s soul, spirit or true self. 



An apprentice who has set their feet on the path is always confronted very early on in their journey with an initial deliberately introduced situation or a variety of situations that created or applied pressure in their consciousness at all levels of their psyche. This initial challenge was designed to move an apprentice out of their comfort zone in order to quickly establish whether they had the required necessary inner fortitude to continue on and press on into the unknown and undertake the journey into the deeper mysteries.

Entering into a mystery school and undertaking the teachings and disciplines is for the few and not the many. It was and is always expected that there will be a considerable number of individuals who would not be able to move through and get past the initial challenge or challenges. Entering a true mystery school is not for the faint hearted.

For thousands of years, this necessary process of bringing about the death of the false ego was at the heart of the traditional teaching methods for those on the healing, shamanic, magical and spiritual pathways. It is still as relevant today as it has always been. 



While the age old necessity of being sound in mind and body still applies, in the age we now live in, it is no longer necessary for a spiritual apprentice to be confronted with life-threatening situations. In today’s world, magical and spiritual power can be accessed and evolutionary progress can be made by those who undertake the original rites of passage that have now been fully recontextualised for 21st century living. This helps an apprentice who sets their feet on the path of return to be able to deliberately face and more easily overcome everyday challenges that impede their spiritual progress.
