Know Thyself

Untitled design (1).jpg

Inscribed above the entrance to every Mystery School are the words: Know Thyself

One could argue that knowing oneself would solve many ,if not all, our human dilemmas. To know and apply the understanding of who & what we are would raise us out of such quandaries of purpose, direction, connection, motivation, etc.


Self doubt, fear, separation, pride, anxiety; are all insignificant when you know, not believe, but know yourself;  your origin, your destination, your purpose. 

What you believe actually matters very little. Who & what you are already is, it's a factual reality. How much of that reality you are aware is the variant, and you can only operate under the influence of how much you know.


 So, how well do you know yourself?

And I'm not just talking about your preferences, your opinion, your story, your status or your relationship to others. That is the Self that is perceiving and making choices about your life; the self that existed before you inhabited this physical body & will go on existing long after your body dies. 

What if there was a systematic way, proven through time,

to peel off the layers of who you think you are

to reveal the reality of who you truly are?

The path of progression with the Modern Mystery School

The Modern Mystery School is one of 7 ancient Mystery Schools on the planet and the only one open to the public. The Modern Mystery School contains a Hermetic Lineage, unchanged since the time of King Salomon and exists for the purpose of reminding all men and women that they are God. 


This is achieved through a Path of Spiritual Progression through series of Activations and Initiations, supported by a wealth of healing techniques, and training in Shamanism, Kabbalah, Sacred Geometry, Meditation, Ensofic Reiki, Hermetics and more that create a framework for understanding the Self, the Universe, and God.

The Modern Mystery School was founded in 1997 by Founder Heirophant Gudni Gudnason as the only public Mystery School, bringing this ancient and sacred path directly into the marketplace. Today, the Modern Mystery School is represented in over 50 countries. The growth and expansion is over seen by the Third Order: Founder Heirophant Gudni Gudnason, Sovereign Ipsissimus Hideto Nakagome and Sovereign Ipsissimus Dave Lanyon; as well as the Council of 12 Women.

Modern Mystery School is lead by two independent, collaborative bodies:
The Third Order and The Council of Twelve

In the early 70's he was Initiated into the Lineage of King Salomon and studied extensively throughout the world topics of Metaphysics, Quantum Physics, Alchemy, Astronomy, Shamanism, Hermeticism, Enochian, Kabbalah and more. In 1995 he received the keys to the Rocky Mountain Mystery School Lineage, one of the 7 Ancient Mystery Schools, from Native North Americans and opened The Modern Mystery School to the public. He began teaching, activating and initiating under direction of the Hierarchy of Light to bring this one secret path to the public. For his reason, he is attributed the title of Founder, while also being an Ipsissimus (meaning Lineage Holder). He is a dedicated humanitarian, dedicating thousands of dollars and hours to improve the lives of those in need. He is Founder and CEO of two humanitarian organizations: Golden Pyramid of Peace and Fusion for Peace. He is also an accomplished martial artist, dancer, actor, stuntman, poet, musician, writer and more.
