Mysterium 2019 is now Sold Out!
“Light is returning, even though this is the darkest hour. No one can hold back the dawn…”
Please note, due to size restrictions, we are limited to 40 participants, first come, first served.
The event is held in a secret location, along with complete detailed schedule of events will be divulged only to those who register!
MYSTERIUM is whispering your name….
Join us for an alchemical blend of music, art, ritual theater, deep play, magick, spoken word poetry, invocation, meditation, divination, transformation, illumination and celebration!
Now is the time to open to new mysteries, deeper layers of knowing, and clearer ways of understanding.
The time for MYSTERIUM is fast approaching, and we wanted to let you know that the door is swinging open for you to join us.
Alchemy has been defined as the ancient and modern art of transmuting matter into spirit.
Alchemy teaches us how to experience our day to day lives on a much deeper spiritual and magickal level. Modern alchemy is not an esoteric study of hidden things, but a joyful discovery of the deeper mysteries we can experience in everyday things, and in each other.
Seeking community, friendship, knowledge, and fun?
This weekend, we will explore how we, as individuals and as a community, can refine and develop our understanding, through discussion, experiential workshops, movement, dreaming and celebration.
…an in-gathering of old and new friends, a point in time where we can reflect, as individuals and a community, the light that shines within each and every one of us.
…an opportunity to play, to create, to learn, to deepen in our relationships with each other and ourselves as we mark the wheel’s turning from darkness toward luminosity. Many of us will be wearing white for the evening’s ceremony; please join us!
Bring a book that has significant meaning to you for the Introductions and Welcoming Book Exchange ceremony! Give away a book, get a book to read.
There will be two pot-luck meals during the event both of which are vegetarian – no fish, no flesh. Please bring healthy organic (if possible) vegetarian food to share and your own plate/bowl and flatware as the Vegas Vortex has gone green and no longer provides paper products.
The MYSTERIUM RITUAL is…
…our Saturday evening’s working, a journey through mind, body and spirit using music, movement, voice and stillness to turn heavy lead into purest gold.
… PLUS the weekend includes engaging playshops presented by Jeff McBride, Abigail Spinner McBride, and our special guests.
MYSTERIUM is an exploration into the Alchemical Arts. During our time together, we will have several guest teachers presenting some outstanding offerings.
We are pleased to present our keynote speaker, Kenton Knepper and others from the Fire Family Tribe.
Kenton Knepper – World Renowned Mentalist and founder of the Mentalist School, Magician, Psychic Entertainer and Suggestionist.
On Saturday 2/2: We will work with quick intuitive rapport readings to apply when meeting people in outer life situations, as well as, to tune into others for more Magickal work. We will also work with consciousness integration methods for quick, positive transformation work.
Sunday 2/3: We will be working with additional finger energy work with the focus on how to do Gemstone Hand Readings. These is a useful intuitive reading tool for muggles, as well as magickal people, and incorporates psychology, as well as ancient symbolism, intuition, and energy transformation. This will be fun, transformative, unique, and a tool all can leave and use with others.
Joel Heathcote – Presents “How Quantum Physics can energize and empower the Alchemical Great Work” This is Jo•els 5th Mysterium and the third time he will be speaking about Quantum Physics, but don’t worry about technical terms, Jo•el is an English Major, not a scientist, so he uses simple words, examples and poems to reveal some of the mighty mysteries and secret forces previously hidden INSIDE the Atom ! He is accompanied by his, “Cosmic Cousin” John Trinity whose life-;one fascination with Electricity has enabled him to contribute importantly to the presentation.
She would like you to know that: “We are constantly being vibrated, on a cellular level, by heard and unheard sound frequencies. Sound vibrations have a tremendous influence over human functionality as sound touches and influences our emotions like no other source of input or expression. If we accept that sound is vibration and we know that vibration touches every part of our physical being, then we understand that sound is heard not only through our ears but through our bones and our skin, basically through every cell in our bodies. Sound & music are nutrients for the nervous system.
The planet itself vibrates. Virtually everything on Earth vibrates. Vibration is believed to affect your body’s functions. Audible sound vibrations may improve health and reduce stress. The body is being filled with vibrations that emphasize wholeness and resonance, and whatever the problem, the sound will go to that place that needs it, your body will pull it in and the cells will begin to regain their highest potential of resonance as the powerful rhythmic vibrations of singing bowls resonate throughout the body. Singing bowls can clear negativity, balance chakras, cleanse your aura and elevate your feeling of peace.
Come and enjoy many sounds into relaxation. You will walk away more focused and clear in your mind and body. I am looking forward to sharing this sound energy for your listening and feeling pleasure.”
Shawn McCaskill will be giving a nutrition class about recovery, specifically about recovery for connective tissue injuries to the knee or ankle. Participants will receive hand outs on anti-inflammatory foods and inflammatory foods, a link to a lymphatic self massage for handling inflammation, and discussion on self care, meditation, the power of consistency, and the amazing healing power of the food we eat. The focus is holistic: food, exercise, and self care. There will be time for questions and demonstrations.
Abigail McBride, High Priestess of the Family of Fire, will take us on an adventure of DEEPENING INTO MYSTERIUM, through breath, gaze, touch and imagination, we will find our ways into the layers of awareness and connection.
Jeff McBride, Master Magician and Alchemist, will share new magical mysteries, and will bring somewhat of his treasure for the delight and education of all.
And yes! The New World Rhythmatism Drum Ensemble will be providing a soundscape for our evening MYSTERIUM ceremony on Saturday night,
And yes the HEARTWHEEL will roll us into one connected circle,

Kenton Knepper was born a mystic. Two of his grandparents were named “Strong” and “Wise”. Kenton’s search for greater Knowing seemed to be a part of him since the start of this lifetime. Kenton has belonged to various esoteric groups, and a member of certain Mystery Schools, including B.O.T.A. Kenton’s innate and educated wok with esoteric psychology, symbolism, suggestion and original systems, have transformed students the world over. Kenton is also a mystic of sound and vibration, working with older Tibetan Singing Bowls and Crystal Bowls in his home in Phoenix, Arizona.

His work with readings combine energy, symbolism, intuition, suggestion, and esoteric philosophy into original systems that are profound and yet easy to do.
Jo•el Heathcote graduated from Dartmouth College with honors in English and is a member of Mensa. He has absorbed limitless information on Quantum Physics from hundreds of videos on YouTube (he has lots of information) and has devoted his entire adult life to discovering the ‘SECRETS of LIGHT” and he wants to share them with YOU !
Nobody knows much about Quantum…it’s really crazy and counter-intuitive, however Jo•el feels he has as good a chance as any physics professor at discovering some Breakthroughs…maybe better…because he knows the Magical Reality as well. So listen up and watch for the Quantum Spell we’re all going to create at the end of the talk. Onward and Inward !
