Magical Mystery School

I attended Jean Houston's East Coast Mystery School this past weekend at the Garrison Institute, a beautiful old building that was once a monastery.

I felt transported to another dimension. Maybe this is what attending Hogwarts for Adults feels like. I was introduced to amazing new ways to see myself and the world around me. Jean truly believes that a larger life is latent in every human spirit and her work is about waking up that latent possibility.

Jean posed the possibility that we are living in a cosmic hologram where everything is part of everything else.

This reminded me of how I am often amazed at how one thing appears in another seemingly disconnected part of the world, like this tree in a puddle which called to me while I was walking around the little town of Garrison. What magic connects the one to the other?
