What is a mystery school?
It is an intense process of self-realisation that relates to the world of the unseen, the mystery behind all of existence.
It explores every side of the human experience from our darkest shadows, to our highest gifts to our ability to be One with everything.
While it may at times involve connecting to a group, it is first and foremen a journey to the self.
It is a gruelling yet pleasurable process supported by a guide.
Historically, the mystery schools are attributed to the ancient Greeks and ancient Egyptians who considered them their highest practices.
They gathered at temples and sacred sites to learn about connecting to the cosmos and to source.
They aimed to live better lives, and be the highest version of themselves in the world.
While it is often linked to polytheist practices of ancient mythology, it is about the awakening of the God within. It is beyond dogma, beyond religion, beyond lineage, allowing us to achieve a direct connection with our source.
Although the mystery schools were officially abolished hundreds of years ago with the rise of christianity, the legacy of its teachings continues to be passed on to us today.
Central to the mystery process is the process of death/birth allowing the initiate to release his grip of the illusions of the material world.
It is about releasing attachments to anything outside of us and awakening our connection to the deep intelligence that lies within.
Somatic deep dive practices
We will learn and practice sequences of breath, sound, movement and touch, for extended periods of time, allowing us to dive deep within, achieve altered states of consciousness and unveil the wisdom of our body.
We awaken the teacher that lies within.
Energetic transmission work
The most important part of the process will happen through energetic transmission. We will learn processes for energetic merging, for developing our energetic abilities and sharing these for the benefit of others.
Sexuality and eros
We will explore sexuality, eros, the orgasm and sacred intimacy.
We will look at sexuality as the gateway to our darkest shadow and our deepest shame, and allow transmutation to occur as we unravel it.
We will also look at eros and the orgasm as the gateway to our highest power, our greatest gifts.
Who is it for?
In the past, it has attracted facilitators who have wanted to add new skills and abilities to their practices, people who are on a journey to becoming a facilitator or teacher, who yearn to awaken their gifts, or people who are simply committed to a path of radical transformation, who want to take their personal spiritual practice to a whole new level.
It is for those who wish to develop themselves in a safe container, and explore how to awaken their highest gifts and bring them to the world. For those who are committed to a spiritual path and willing to go deep. Those who yearn to become who they were meant to be, and believe that their very presence alone can bring transformation, healing and impact to the world. Together we will
We will gather as brothers, lovers, friends, we will sit in presence in here and now. We will share vulnerably from the heart, and create deep bonds as we witness each other’s process of deep transformation.
The 5 stages of the Mystery school
The teachings will follow the 5 stages of the mystery school process :
5- Integration and oneness
This first stage involves the discovery that the body is a tool for deep transformation and for achieving oneness.
2- Initiation & self-realisation.
After realising that the body is our greatest tool for transformation and oneness, we then evoke the areas of our being which are seeking transformation.
This stage includes shadow work, and deep processing of our darkest underworld.
We will then focus on awakening higher power that is within us. This stage will include the awakening of our energetic power as well as the discovery of our unique individual gift for the world: our essence.
In this stage we turn inwards and focus on receiving and embodying our highest power for ourselves, allowing it to fully nourish the parts of ourselves which are seeking attention.
5- Integration and oneness:
As a result of having received our own essence for a continuous amount of time, we then begin to radiate and transmit it naturally and effortlessly to the world around us.
We navigate the world connected to a new power and potency.

Marc is a somatic therapist and shamanic practitioner specialised in the Medicine of eros, healing practices related to eros and sexuality.
His work has two main focuses:
1- Supporting the transmutation of shame, trauma and shadow to power, purpose and mastery.
2- As a teacher's teacher, he trains facilitators, therapists and teachers by supporting their development of new abilities.
His practices, which are often considered radical, combine talk therapy, with experiential processes involving the soma (the body), energy transmission and sexual explorations.
Interactions can range from gentler ones including soft touch, cuddling and conscious stillness to more radical ones such as dark-room therapy, and re-enacting kinky, taboo and shameful sexual scenarios in healing and conscious ways.
Today, he shares his work through 1-1 sessions, online and in-person, residential and non-residential courses and workshops, and online live and pre-recorded courses.
After spending over a decade training in somatic movement therapy, energy work and sacred sexuality, his own practice emerged as a result of his years spent observing behavioural responses in 1-1 and group therapy sessions worldwide.
As well as being a trained somatic movement therapist, he has also been initiated into shamanism in 2015 and in the Mystery School as a student in 2013 and a guide in 2018.
He is also senior faculty at the Shakti Shiva Academy since 2021.
While his process and practice are open to people of all levels of experience, he tends to work mostly with advanced practitioners, people who are keen to become facilitators, and facilitators wishing to develop new skills.
