Everyday Mysticism: An Online Gathering with Dr. Barbara Holmes

Join us on Oct. 18, 2023, for a LIVE online journey into the mystical and the Divine.

Have you ever had a mystical experience, but couldn’t find the words to describe it? The Bible is filled with stories of unexplained, seemingly magical events — yet so often we discredit those very experiences in our own lives. Learn how to embrace mystery and move between the worlds of mystical and practical in Everyday Mysticism: An Online Gathering with Dr. Barbara Holmes, Oct. 18, 2023, 10 –11:30 am PT (Pacific Time). Explore your own mystical experiences and uncover life-changing insights with Dr. Holmes and an online community of like-minded spiritual seekers. This event will be recorded. All registrants will have access to the replay for one full year.

“The mysticism of everyday life is an opportunity to deeply mine the depths of human experience, relationships with others, and our encounters with nature.”

—Dr. Barbara Holmes

For some, mystical experiences of God occur in dreams, waking visions, and visitations from ancestral realms. For others, embracing mystery is about learning to let go of the need to have everything controlled and explained. 

Whether you are looking to unpack your own Divine experiences or become more open to the mystical moments of everyday life, this online gathering can offer wisdom, dialogue, and practices that open hearts and expand minds.  

Event Details  
Attendees will be invited into teachings, conversations, and practices designed to help us talk openly about our own mystical longings and stories, which people often feel they need to hide or downplay. Together, with Dr. Holmes, we will learn how to integrate the mystical into our everyday lives. 

Event access information will be sent closer to the event date. Participants will need a device with reliable Internet access, such as a smartphone, tablet, or computer to access Zoom.  

Registration for this event is open from Sept 13 through Oct 16, 2023. This event will be recorded. All registrants will have access to the replay for one full year.  

The cost of attending this online gathering is $95. We believe that finances should not be a barrier to participation. For that reason, we have made three additional price levels available at $30 and $10, or you can choose any amount above $5. We encourage you to select the price you are most able to afford.  

“Every ordinary thing is infused with mystery. I am an everyday mystic.
So are you.”

—Dr. Barbara Holmes
