A 6-month online Intensive –

A Training in Transformation

The Elegant Mystic

Transforming towards our awakening

Are you longing for more? Open towards subtle experience and the flourishing of awareness in this 6-month online course. 

This course is designed for both enhancing your skill set in facilitating transformation for others, your personal development and awakening. We will be diving into foundational skills, techniques, awareness’s, and embodiment using specifically designed maps, models, techniques, and practices. 

Join a group of human beings, who are ready to engage in honest inquiry and open into deeper versions of self. Here, profound and true transformation becomes possible. Each cohort is unique, and provides a deeply humbling experience for all involved. 

Together, we will embark into a mature learning journey of our human development – here every interaction becomes a work of art. Our spontaneous discoveries, wild abandon, and slow movement into wholeness open into an infinite horizon line. 

A Training Like No Other

How we uniquely light the path

Transform yourself and others

Learn the creative process of designing transformational experiences for others, and in the process receiving the beauty of your own system, with exercises designed to support you in growing into your leading edge. Embrace the emerging movement and unfolding of deep inquiry. 

Integral Synthesis

All of the work learned in class is a synthesis of multiple bodies of knowledge, science, philosophies, wisdom, and tradition. We pull from decades of experience and have multiple staff with their own specialties to create a holistic course designed to support you in bringing this information directly into your day-to-day life. 

Shadow Work

Beyond the perspective of a single teacher, there are multiple teachers, mentors, and previous students who will be sharing their unique perspective and mastery in this course to support you in illuminating blindspots and unconscious material. The potential for supportive feedback, and lights to shine in are immense. Dive deep into shadow work in this container. 

Subtle Energetics

Develop your own subtle energetic capacities and support their emergence according to your unique structure of being.  Access extraordinary life force energy, synchronistic flow, alchemy, being and aliveness. 

Developmentally Designed

This training is created to not just create state changes, but stage shifts in consciousness. Lean into healthy vertical development.

Awakening in Community

Access a community of deeply engaged humans who are interested in holding more responsibility for humanities well being. Transform yourself relationally – both in intimacy and with the collective.

Details for the 2020 Program

Taught by Elegant Mystic Staff, guest teachers, and mentors, this course is a 6-month long course, with class meetings one weekend a month, six hours on Saturday and four hours on Sunday of the weekend date.  

The modules are hosted via the Zoom conference platform, from 10:00am-4:00pm MDT on Saturday and 10:00am-2:00pm on Sunday. Each module contains a mixture of lecture, experiential practice, and both group and individual opportunities to deepen into the work.

Additional technologies needed to participate in the course are Slack and Voxer. We will be using private groups on these channels to support delivering content, creating community and integration for each other.

 

Between Modules

You’ll be doing a lot of both supporting and being supported, in as many different contexts as possible. And there’s no way around this. This isn’t a course focused on supporting you to ‘help everybody else’. Knowing intimately what it’s like to have a blindspot highlighted by a coach simply co-exploring with you, or to suddenly have a ‘good cry’ you didn’t even know you needed, or feeling deeply seen and understood during a practice session…only by having walked this terrain yourself will you help others navigate their own. 

There will also be a 1-hour optional meeting in between classes to support you in your process as well as 2 Pods, 1 hour with each instructor to train you in the techniques.

Pods

Between each module, you will receive, two 60 minute practice sessions with a course lead. Here you will have direct feedback on your work in between courses.

Mentoring

You will be assigned a mentor and a group of 2 students that you will be paired with for the duration of the training. In this group you will complete course group homework, awareness practices, and trade sessions with each other.

Program Cost

Our 6-month program is a profound investment in your growth and transformation. We limit your cohort to 15 participants, some whom we’ve encouraged years prior to wait until a more optimal time to train with us. We never presume training with us is the right choice for you! Your enrollment will be considered on a first come first serve basis. You need to complete and submit all application materials, in addition to your deposit, in order to be considered.  The $400 deposit is non-refundable.  Withdrawing from class, the refund will be based on the date of withdrawal and how much of the course you’ve taken.

Financially speaking we strive to keep our tuition low and we do not subscribe to ‘abundance mentality’ paradigms that might encourage someone to spend money they don’t have. Depending on your emotional constitution, taking on a larger investment than you’ve saved up for might ironically prevent you from being emotionally supple enough for such an intensive training.

Some considerations before signing up with us: 

We imagine that this cohort is the perfect combination of people to both teach, support and trigger you. We expect trigger will happen – it often does in growth experiences – and we do not view it as a necessarily bad or good thing. Our students report that much of their learning stems from experiences with their cohort as with their instructors. You’ll likely spend the year practicing with a blend of therapists & coaches, along with a sprinkling of artists, bodyworkers and various spiritual seekers. Your ability to learn from this variety of values & perspectives is a part of the course.

If you’re feeling anxious, know that our instructors can be intense and they are extremely committed to not only kindness, but humility as well. At the end of the day we know that only you can determine the best style of facilitation for you. That said, you still may experience training with us as uncomfortably direct. Our interview process sorts for participants who are stable enough in their personal lives to navigate possible emotional upheaval at times.

“A training like no other”

“In this course group work, Shelby formed a safe, welcoming environment for me to sort out my intuition. I have not only began accepting myself and gaining confidence but I also realize that I can allow myself to embrace my emotions. Tracking energy has come very naturally for me, and she helped me use that to my advantage. Shelby helps my light shine brighter, and  supports me in discovering parts of myself I never knew were missing! 10/10 I would recommend.”

– Madi R. Nurse

Interested in the course?

These 6 months of training are a joy to participate in.

It truly makes the entire year a more rich & productive time for everyone, students and faculty alike.

But we aren’t spiritual entertainers. We wouldn’t dedicate our careers to this if the Elegant Mystic didn’t also reliably lead to concrete results. Happier families, promotions at work, a more successful company of your own…

If you’ve made it this far down our sales page, you’ve likely at least tasted dropping into the zone with full access intuition.This application of coaching, facilitation, and/or mediation to high-leverage situations…it’s pretty straightforward yet also mysterious.

Extraordinary doors tend to open as you cultivate this level of leadership.

 

 

This training is for you if…..

 

  • You are interested in a natural release into a larger sense of self, and your deeper capacities

  • You are in a transition or looking for the next step

  • At-home learning works really well for you

  • You want to relieve suffering both  within yourself and the collective

  • Your personal transformation and deep inquiry is a part of your spiritual path.

  • You are interested in cultivating new ways of leadership
