It is a calling to welcome a deep spiritual introspection. A gateway into quickening the evolution of the soul. When one steps on this mystical path, a window opens unto the super-conscious, the collective mind. The combined experience of the human soul. The divine powers of absolute forgetfulness and total remembrance.

The Call of the Mystic was nothing short than that. As we stepped in, it was as if we were transported to a different medium, a vortex of transformation. Each and every one of us, mystics and support team included, got to experience what is called the Mirror of the Soul. A condensed state of reality where all that is within comes to the surface. A powerful reflection of the “state” of affairs. Of our inner understanding and grasp of who we are. Our limitations, vices, virtues and strengths were all brought out to the light of day. The Call of the Mystic wasn’t a Yoga retreat, nor was it a Zen practice weekend. The wisdom of self was intentionally unintentional. The teaching that was brought out, wasn’t the material shared in class. But the keen observation of spirit to how we responded to the teaching, to each other, to the nature around us, and ultimately to our own choices and ability to feel.

We got to experience such depth of teaching, from a Shamanic death to the recognition of our amazing, divine, godly self. From the depth of Mantra and song to the shining light of ‘Aham Prema’ — our own being-ness of Love. From the profundity of connection to nature, to the ever lasting mystical practices of our ancestors and their magical wisdom. Some of us, inviting a new guiding spirit in the form of the mystical Dorje, and others in the form of releasing of past Karmic debt.

As we ventured through the teachings of Dorjën, of Zen, of Sufism, Tantra, Mantra, Yoga, Shamanism, prayer and the invocation of Gratitude, we called in an invitation for an inner space, allowing the divine to shine and fill us fully. Each class and each participant; every sacred object and each and every single glimpse of compassion as we shared our hearts so deeply, as we shared and released our stories.

Heeding the Call of the Mystic was truly an invitation to greatness. Well beyond what we could all imagine. The tears, the laughter and the depth of connection we got to experience goes well beyond the limitation of time and space. The connection of heart we got to experience is truly the teaching of the Mystic. Truly what the nature of life is all about. The invitation to trust, to surrender our ideas of who we are and might become and allow life, in its wondrous flow to bring forth greater possibilities, and a greater calling to live as free and expressed than we can possibly imagine.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

In Gratitude

In deep gratitude to Larisa Stow, my co-pilot on this incredible journey. I couldn’t have made this dream a reality without you. Thank you for your patience, your genius and allowing my full on crazy to come to the surface. Wow… what a journey. From paper cranes to Shamanic depth wraps… we did it all…

To my dearest and most cherished friend – eMM. You are the source of my greatness, my muse, my inspiration, my everything. This retreat was my greatest tribute to you my friend and partner in crime. I can’t wait to see what we’ll manifest together next! I just eMM.

To my dearest Team Magick – Sameer, Viktoria, Malaine, Dolf, Marci, Mandy, Jewelz and Monique. This retreat would not be possible if not for your endless love, support and absolute Magick. I can’t even begin to express the depth of my love and gratitude to you all.

Deep heart felt gratitude to my dearest friend Mindy. Endless hours of inspiration, of support, of excitement and anticipation. You, my friend, are a true mystic. I have never met a spiritual seeker as fun, serious and adorable as you! I cherish you and your endless support of me in all that I do.

My infinite love and gratitude to my dearest friends Joad and Beth for gracing us with their presence and loving hearts. I feel that having you with us was my heart’s calling for a true mystic. Thank you for endless moments of inspiration, you both mean the world to me.

Deep gratitude to Hagit Amer for feeding us all with your magical food. Each meal was a delight and a celebration. Truly a feast for the soul.

I’m on the floor grateful for all of the participating mystics. Too many to name by name, but not enough to embrace by heart. Your trust, openness and willingness to walk this path and heed the Call of the Mystic has changed my soul forever.

And last but not least, my deepest gratitude to the Sacred Land that held us so near and dear throughout this weekend. Every tree and creature, every wisp of wind. This retreat and the teachings within it, were nothing but a reflection of your inner beauty shining through in the hearts of your creations.

I would love to also mention, so many friends and family that I had to let down or postpone connecting with while being so consumed with this creation. I feel your trust in me and pride as I offer my heart so fully to walking my soul’s calling.
