For those of you who don’t know me, I’m Alanna Kaivalya. I have a 500-hour teacher training online with YogaDownload and I have over 250 hours of higher education for yogis online in the areas of spirituality and mysticism.
Welcome back! The Modern Mystics podcast will cover all realms of mysticism. And I want to start this podcast by giving you a bit of an overview as to what exactly mysticism is. I figure that’s a good place to start.
I have a couple of goals with this podcast, and one of them is to be honest and real with you, there’s no scripted anything here, this is off the cuff, it’s just me chatting into my microphone and delivering what I hope is a positive and uplifting message that will help you hone your skills as a mystic in this crazy modern day world.
The other thing is that I want to bring on some guests in the future to also add to the conversation here as modern mystics, because it’s not just me talking about this topic, this is a broader topic, and I want to really hammer home the importance of your work as a modern mystic. So without further ado, let’s get into our topic of discussion today, which is the question, what is a modern mystic?
As a modern mystic we all need to learn to go within and understand and recognize our own expertise, our own supports, our own connection to source.
Now, let’s just unpack the first word here, “modern”. So that means that it’s somebody who lives today, right? Somebody who’s not alive last year, even 50 years ago, hundreds of years ago, those types of mysticism, and I’ll get into that in just a moment as to what they entail, and what they were like the historical types of mysticism. They’re not necessarily relevant for us in this modern day age. And what I’m really interested in, is working with people like you, working with people today. Working with people in this time.
One of the things you’ll hear me talk about a lot in this podcast, is how and why things are applicable for us today right now. It means we may need to update the way we utilize it, the way we talk about it, we may need to think outside the box a little bit about what we do. That’s what we’re all about.
