Lineage is a key and important factor in determining the legitimacy, integrity and authority that an authentic Mystery School holds.

The lineage of the Modern Mystery School (MMS) dates back to the times of King Salomon and has therefore, over 3,000 years of history and lineage. While the mystery school tradition is much older than that, the lineage of the MMS and its teachings can be verified and traced back to the teachings of King Salomon himself.

Lineage, by definition, means a lineal descent from an ancestor, ancestry or pedigree. The Modern Mystery School has persisted through time an ancient tradition of sharing of knowledge from teacher to student, affirmed by the holy process of initiation.

The lineal and direct transfer of information in this fashion has preserved the virtue and honour of the mystery school tradition, which has held the secrets of God, the universe and keys to true spiritual power since the beginning of time. This wisdom and power is available to all who truly seek it and are willing to honour its sacred nature by walking the Path of Initiation.

Initiation in combination with the unbroken lineage empowers the Adept to engage in the Great Work: creating a better world and living in accordance with their true potential and life purpose. The great masters have all walked upon the path of initiation in the mystery school tradition, which has led them to fulfill their promise to God while being here on this earth.

In the Modern Mystery School, the integrity of our lineage is of utmost importance and preserved through many methods, including:

* Initiation into Adepthood (first initiation) as well as the various stages of progression, paths and certification

* Annual Professional Development for Certified MMS Life Activation Practitioners, Healers, Teachers & Guides to uphold the quality in healing modalities and services provided

* Apprenticeship training for Guides, Master Teachers, International Instructors and Program Leaders to ensure teachers of any subject are in full alignment with teachings and can offer the highest quality of energy

* On-going training: Initiates of varying degrees —Adepts, Life Activation Practitioners, Guides, Ritual Masters, International Instructors — are invited several times a year to ongoing training to expand their proficiency and expertise.

Being a part of the Modern Mystery School lineage is also being a part of a family. The MMS is a global tribe of brothers and sisters who are dedicated to the empowerment and betterment of humanity through spirituality and service to all.

"..Through the work  you become super aware of everything.
This Path gave me the freedom to choose."

Our Mission

The mission of the Modern Mystery School is World Peace: To create peace on this planet by uplifting the hearts and minds of humanity. The Modern Mystery School is in service to all of humanity to assist in the ascension of the human consciousness on this planet. This is a mission the school and its lineage holders have been working towards for over 3,000 years. The purpose of the school is to help people achieve their highest spiritual potential in order to become the Adam Kadmon: god-like beings in the physical.

The school provides people with the tools and teachings they need in order to empower themselves and realize that they are their own greatest teacher, so that they may remember who they truly are. The school carries out the work of the HIERARCHY OF LIGHT on this planet and is charged with honouring, preserving and handing down the tools and teachings in the lineage of King Salomon. This is done through initiation and the handing-down of sacred tradition, the Modern Mystery School works to bridge the spiritual and the physical worlds by anchoring and flowing the energy of abundance.

The Path

All lineages have main key holders, individuals who hold and anchor the lineage on the planet and hold the authority to keep the door of the mystery school open to those who seek the Light. In this lineage, the main key holders are titled the Third Order and in union, they administer and attend to maintaining the purity of the lineage and its teachings.
