This summit aired February 1-5, 2021
What does it mean to be a mystic in our time?
In this modern era brimming with technology, complexity, and noise, have we lost our connection to mystery and mysticism?
With the chaos of our contemporary world, can we still access poetic states of bliss and the experience of the sublime?
After a year that’s left many feeling bereft, exhausted, and depleted, there’s a strong desire to reconnect with perennial wisdom and replenish the capacity for universal and timeless ecstatic union with the sacred.
Mystics across time have written some of the world’s greatest poetry and scripture during episodes of war, plague, and social upheaval… and they call to us now to reclaim our soul’s longing and commune with the sacred heart of existence — even in the midst of turmoil.
As we enter a new year and a new era, it’s a perfect time to listen and receive inspiration from the “holy troublemakers” across history — who were both ordinary, flawed people and great mystics — revelling in the sublime while delivering provocative messages of truth and awakening.
We’re bringing together a unique cohort of seasoned scholars, sacred rebels, and mystical seekers who will support you in restoring your sense of meaning and remembrance of what’s true and lasting... and help you reconnect to love as the harbor amidst life’s crashing storms.
The Mystics Summit will guide you into the ecstatic wisdom of celebrated figures like Hildegard of Bingen, the Black Madonna, Teilhard de Chardin, Rabia of Basra, Bede Griffiths, and Sri Aurobindo…
… as well as contemporaries like Thomas Merton, Ram Dass, Sri Siddhi Ma, Friar Greg Boyle, Dorothy Day, George Sand, and others.
At a time when it’s easy to lose hope and feel dismayed by the world’s distressing crises, we can glean strength and invoke personal liberation by understanding the experiences of mystics who survived imprisonment, poverty, and other disasters — often emerging even more rooted and in love with the Divine.
Join more than 40 scholars, teachers, and contemporary mystics — including Krishna Das, Mirbai Starr, Matthew Fox, Rabbi Rami Shapiro, Imam Jamal Rahman, Alexander John Shaia, Andrew Harvey, China Galland, and many others — as they lead you through the lives and times of ancient mystics, their “ordinary heroism,” and lessons you can apply in these tumultuous times.
