The Mystics

“The Mystery of mysteries is the door of all essence.”

-Lao Tzu

SYNOPSIS

“The Mystics: A Journey into the Mysteries”  will be the first ever in-depth series on the history of mysticism.  It will take the audience on an epic journey across the globe and throughout time to follow the evolution of the world’s great mystical traditions and meet some of the mystical philosophers who have imparted their wisdom teachings to humanity.

While the series weaves together a fascinating historical narrative, we will also speak with modern mystics and scientists to investigate whether the mystical experience is a product of the human imagination, or a true connection to a higher reality.

Ultimately, this series is about the evolution of human consciousness, and humanity’s search for the ultimate truth that will unite the world in common understanding.

Who are the Mystics?

 The mystics are shamans, druids, and philosopher sages of ancient China and Greece. They are the gurus and vedic philosphers of India, and the oracles of ancient Egypt.  They are the prophets and magi of the Middle East.  They are alchemists, hermeticists, and theosophists. They are the Buddhists, Gnostic Christians, Jewish Kabbalists, Sikh Masters and Muslim Sufis.

The mystics all believed that there is more to reality than we can perceive with our limited five senses, and that through training, all human beings can transform their minds in order to experience higher states of consciousness.  To mystics, the ultimate goal of life is enlightenment or gnosis, Greek for “knowing.”  They believe that attaining these states leads to a profound understanding of the mysteries of the Universe, and thus they have become referred to as the mystery teachings.

Over the course of the series, we will journey through 5,000 years of history, from the Shamanic traditions of hunting gathering societies, through the emergence of Eastern and Western mystical philosophy, to the modern spiritual integration movement, which seeks the parallels that connect all mystery teachings, and their correlation with modern scientific theory.

Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.”
