Lineage is a key factor in determining the legitimacy, integrity and authority that a true Mystery School holds.
The lineage of the Modern Mystery School 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, means a lineal descent from an ancestor, ancestry or pedigree. The Modern Mystery School’s derivation is from 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 and the universe and keys to true spiritual power since the beginning of time. This wisdom and power is available to anyone who seeks it and is willing to honour it’s 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 alignment 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 enabled 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 Developement 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.
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.
