It's Alchemy

Discover the alchemical process that meets you where you are and helps you to realign with your soul’s purpose to be your most authentic self.

Stargate Mystery School

 Journey deep within to connect with your authentic self through an eclectic array of teachings. Connect deeply to your essence and deeply to the Earth and all her beings. Learn and practice all this in the beauty of a creative, collaborative and supportive circle community.

The Stargate Mystery School is designed for both professionals and non-professionals who work with, or want to work with, non-ordinary states of consciousness. In every culture except “modern” western culture, the use of Non-Ordinary States of Consciousness was integrated into everyday life, usually on a community-wide level. Each weekend, we will come together to explore the potential of subtle energies, allowing ourselves to follow our own or another psyche rather than attempting to direct or control these natural inner processes.

Stargate Mystery School is an alchemical process that meets you where you are and helps you to realign with your soul’s purpose to be your most authentic self.

This class is a series of five retreat weekends designed to explore the realm of subtle energies through experiential processes. The Stargate curriculum draws upon breathwork, transpersonal psychology, sound healing, and meditation techniques to delve into the Mystery.

This study group will help you to connect with the heart of your soul and water the seeds of awareness that are already within you. We create a safe container for you and your spirit to connect and begin to have relations. This safe place allows for deep healing and exploring non-ordinary states of consciousness.

As you become more aware of your unconscious behaviors you are then able to make conscious choices. Stepping out of any falsehood that we’ve created enables us to move through any fears or insecurities that may arise in order to embody the magnificent beings we truly are and live more consciously and joyously.

This is a process that facilitates the path of discovering one’s own gifts.

Each weekend focuses on a process that taps into deep evolutionary energies empowering your innate abilities to remember skills that embody the language of your soul.

Learn to listen to your body, your heart, and the Earth through Earth-based teachings.

We are excited to be offering Stargate again after this time of quiet. Our prayers continue to hold for us to meet in person again!

From Our Facilitators

"This is not a workshop, this is a medicine field.  Look in your heart and follow. When you say yes, when you start, then you must complete it so that you have a good benefit-because it will shake things up. There will be part of you that wants to move away from it at times, for whatever reason. That's when you hold on tightest with us.  Lean into the team that will be working with you, because that is what our community is all about. That's how we get to the places where we can actually live our true selves. Stargate is about aligning the Soul and Heart with its mission and propelling it forward! It is an archetypal medicine field created to actualize ourselves as instruments of Peace and Unity" - Jyoti


As Jyoti shared, she was given a formula for each of the 5 Stargate weekends:

“Each weekend will be what the class has to focalize and focus on in order to see what it takes to bring a vision into manifestation. The first weekend focusing on Preparation, the second- Purification, the third - Initiation, Integration, and Actualization.” - Jyoti

"I’m grateful for Jyoti and Russell, our spiritual elders & teachers, for following the Call that became the ingredient for community building! I’m blessed as my children grew up in our community, around Stargate and the magic it created. After being in Children’s Stargate, each of them chose to participate in the adult Stargate Program at different times. Stargate is the ground that helped my family and I through difficult life experiences that came towards us. It is a platform that holds a formula to help work out interpersonal issues and challenges in order to be our authentic, awake selves.  I am personally curious and excited to see what alchemy will be created as we all come together as the herbs in Her Garden!"  - Darlene Hunter

"I was at a party the other day for New Year's Eve and a friend of mine said: "What is Stargate? .. I don't really know what it is! "  And I said:  "That's the mystery part of it because it's an alchemical process. It's designed so that when we meet ourselves every weekend and build on that,  so each weekend, we're meeting different deeper parts of ourselves. You can't really explain how ... because it's an experience. It is a feeling thing." When we were getting more into the conversation,  I realized that what helped her to understand what I was talking about,  is that we struggle to express what is inside. We study subtle energy. We're into an alchemical field together where we all get to be ourselves, to be authentic.  We study the realm of the subtle inner energy, our psychic energy,  it's a place to talk about these things as there's no place to really talk about these things..  We're diving into ourselves. We're also in the study of how our energy field works and how it interacts with our environment.  It's a really fun thing to do in a group of people where there's a container." - Wendy Cummins

From Past Participants

“It gave me the tools to stay open to follow that guidance…to do it despite the fear and know that I’m held in a good place... To have this family to come back to and my teachers who are just incredible spiritual mentors.  I feel so grateful to be able to learn from them and to be able to learn with my peers…and grow into this family…and know it is so safe.  Whatever kind of healing needs to be done this is a safe place to do it." - JS

"Stargate brought forth in me more of who I am, how I serve the greater good, and what I can do to make a difference in this world. This mystery school offers core personal insights, deep healing and lifelong friendships… I highly recommend it to anyone who is serious about growing into wholeness and living in Joy." - TR
