The Modern Mystic
Embodied Spirituality in Everyday Life
A 6-Month Journey | January - June 2024
"Make me an instrument of your peace"
St. Francis of Assisi | Christian Mystic
In this world plagued by increasing hatred, polarization, and
a crisis of compassion, society is in need of Modern Mystics.
Traditionally, a Mystic is someone who has a direct and embodied experience of the Sacred. Often people leave the world and enter into a monastic environment to have this experience.
A Modern Mystic views the world itself as the monastery.
Modern mystics recognize that the everyday difficulties we encounter, along with the global and existential crises we face, are opportunities to transform ourselves and live from our deepest spiritual nature. Modern Mystics feel a calling to embody their spirituality in the world to help navigate and heal the challenges of our times.
What is the Modern Mystic Training?
The Modern Mystic is a 6-month online training that is intended to help you integrate your spirituality in everyday life.
Often we feel a division between our inner life of meditation, prayer, or contemplative practice, and our outer life of work, relationships, and the everyday challenges we face as human beings.
This program brings these two worlds together. You'll be introduced to teachings and practices that enable you to embody your spirituality in daily living.
Join Neelama and a small group of committed spiritual seekers as we engage in an experiential 6-month journey.

"The fullness of joy is to behold God in everything. God is the ground, the substance, the teaching, the teacher, the purpose, and the reward for which every soul labors." Julian of Norwich | Christian Mystic
