Mystery & Mastery Post-Grad Programme
the map we follow
The programme landscape is a weaving of the Hindu Chakra system and the Buddhist Eight Fold Path and is hosted across eight intensive retreats over four years. The retreats will be structured loosely around aspects of the Chakra system and the Eight Fold Path so will focus on energising and integrating the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects ministers of lives.
Facilitated by OneSpirit faculty, the retreats include meditations, yoga, rituals, reflection exercises, body work, art work, music, small group inquiry and individual spiritual insight sessions. Between retreats, participants maintain community through spiritual practice, co-counselling sessions, holding small inquiry groups, monthly conference calls, and actively being part of a Love in Action group, which is an opportunity to explore new ways of manifesting love in the world.
