ABOUT

What is the relationship between mindfulness and mysticism?

Karen Frances McCarthy leads a six-week course for those seeking hidden knowledge. Access the mystical path using the tools of mindfulness.

Mindfulness is a word often used in meditation to describe being present and aware. So how can something so simple help us access mystic wisdom, power and hidden knowledge?

Whether we are conscious of it or not, everyone has, to varying degrees, experienced synchronicities, whispers, subtle sensations, or hidden knowledge that can appear from nowhere. These are all indications of the power of your spirit and your connection to the Spirit, (God, One, Source, Brahman, Tao, First Cause) at work in your life, offering guidance and reassurance along your path. Unfortunately, the rational mind can be quick to dismiss the subtlety of higher wisdom.

The path of the mystic – or experiencing a mystical union or direct communication with God, spiritual truth, or ultimate reality – begins with mindfulness and becoming present to the infinity in each moment. From this state, we can enter that state Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh describes as “interbeing” or union with all things, which ultimately offers the opportunity to step into the flow of knowledge, insight and healing power. From here, we learn to listen to the voice of the spirit, the voice of our intuition in order to access higher wisdom and step into the flow of inspiration. Learning to understand our interconnectedness and learning to surrender the ego to trust, can be enhanced by learning the rituals and practices of the Mystic.

What to Expect

This 6-week course of 2-hour classes introduces you to practices to expand the power of your Spirit. Work with journeying and guided meditations. Take practical exercises that are rich in colour, feeling and symbolism. Unfold the faculties of the mystic and your ability to trust yourself to reach deeper states of entrancement to allow higher wisdom to flow.

Each week we will discuss some well-known mystics and how they worked. You’ll then do practical exercises focusing on this work. Learn to draw on tools and rituals used by your ancestors (such as divination, scrying) to reveal knowledge. Work with healing power and insights; with trance writing and speaking to bring forth wisdom and practice prophetic dreaming.

You’ll work with deepening your ability to still the mind to experience the state of nonduality from which mystic wisdom can flow. This state of attunement will show you how to listen to the voice of your soul and recognise the synchronicities of the greater wisdom of the unseen world at work in your life. These practices are both sacred and a fun way to unfold inner wisdom and give expression to the power of the soul.

Through a combination of lectures and practical exercises, you will learn to access your own mystical and psychic abilities. You’ll take intuitive understanding to an even deeper level. You’ll recognise the presence and power of the One in your life and understand your interconnection with all things seen and unseen.

Some of the Mystics to be discussed are:
• Buddha, Dogen (meditation, oneness, power, transcendence)
• George Ivanovich Gurdjieff (self-realisation and mindfulness)
• Khalil Gibran, Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi (for trance writing)
• Mother Teresa (healing)
• Nostradamus, Joan of Arc (prophecy & visions)
• Oracle of Delphi, Aleister Crowley (divination

Suitable for all levels. All sessions recorded.

About Karen Frances McCarthy

An international, progressive medium, best-selling author, and public speaker, Karen grew up steeped in the Celtic mysticism and spiritual traditions of Ireland. As a child, she communicated with spirits. As an adult, her desire to be of service evolved into a passion for social justice and the pursuit of truth, which led her to a career as a major media political journalist and an embedded Iraq war correspondent. A tragic loss became the catalyst that brought her back to spirituality, particularly Eastern philosophy, and working with the mediumistic faculty she’s had since childhood.

As an advocate of the ethical practice and healing potential of mediumship, she underwent years of intensive training at the world-renowned Arthur Findlay College in England and is accredited by its governing body, the Spiritualist National Union. To further understand the complexities of grief, she obtained a Diploma in Bereavement Counselling from the Institute of Counselling in Scotland.
