The Mystery School

Our Mystery School is a sanctuary to learn ancient traditions, interpret nature's messages, and connect with the spirit realms. Here, members can dive into spiritual development that seamlessly integrates with their daily life.

We offer an affordable monthly subscription of £19 per month that grants access to a wealth of resources. There is no lock-in period and you can cancel your subscription at any time.

The doors are closed to new members for much of the year but we are opening them so folk can join during the week of the Summer Solstice between Monday 17th and Friday 21st June.

You can find out more about our Mystery School here on this link.
