Embodying the Mystical
An online course into
the deeper meaning
and spiritual potential of Christmas.
The deeper meaning of Christmas is to
recognize that the birth of Christ symbolizes
the birth of the Divine in everyone.
The Christmas Season
The Holiday season can be centered around what's happening outside us: organizing holiday meals, hosting guests, attending office parties,
and -- of course-- making sure we've gotten everyone their annual gifts.
While these can bring great joy, they can also
be an incredible source of stress. When our focus is only on the outer events of the season, we lose touch with the radical inner transformation that the Christmas season
invites us into.
Christmas, when understood at a deeper level, invites us to
participate in a powerful inner transfiguration of our whole being.
In the story of Jesus's birth, we have a sacred message:
Divinity incarnating into humanity.
I call this the Inner Christmas, and it's available here and now- for each and every
one of us. Contrary to popular belief, the incarnation was not meant for just one
person, 2000 years ago. As Christ taught over and over, we are all designed to
become embodiments of Divine love, peace, truth and healing. Our world,
more than ever, needs the unadulterated light of our Being.
"The whole of creation
is the beloved community, the partner in the divine dance.
Everything is the “child of God.”
When you think of it, what else
could anything be?
All creatures must in some way carry the divine DNA of their Creator."
~Richard Rohr: OFM: Franciscan Priest and Spiritual Author

"Neelama is a wonderful teacher. She is passionate and warm, and she brings to the program as much love and heart as she does knowledge and experience. The program design is brilliant – and her powerful exercises build on each other, unblocking us, deepening us spiritually and connecting us to our divine self. It’s a beautiful thing!" ML -- Ottawa, Canada
"What I most appreciate about the Mystical Christ workshops with Neelama is how inclusive they are. It does not matter that I am of Jewish heritage and relate most to a Hindu path. I am treated as a fellow seeker and feel right at home in the Mystical Christ gatherings." LK -- Ottawa Canada
"The Mystical Christ has become a compass for me to arrive at God’s door. On this journey led by Neelama, I felt deep togetherness with the other participants; free to reveal my heart, my wounds, and my longings while opening to the whole of Divine love." JR -- Washington DC
