The Modern Mystery School is an open branch of the Western Mystery School tradition in the lineage of King Salomon which is founded on Universal Hermetic spiritual principles which are, themselves, beyond a specific religious affiliation or dogma. These Hermetic principles can be identified in the major world religions founded on Love, Compassion and Kindness.


The mission of the Modern Mystery School is World Peace by providing people with the tools and teachings they need in order to create peace inside themselves and realize they are their own greatest teacher. 

The Modern Mystery School exists to assist in the ascension of the human consciousness on this planet and serve all of humanity. The school and its lineage holders have been working towards this mission for over 3,000 years. Helping people achieve their highest spiritual potential in this physical life, while living a life of joy, fulfillment and love is the ultimate purpose of the school.

Light Leaders are needed to support the establishment of Peace in the world. This is a path accomplished through personal responsibility, supporting human evolution, right use of power and living with kindness, Love, and integrity to the best of our ability.

It is a core believe within the Modern Mystery School that all humans originated from a Divine Source and are therefore made from a Divine substance, therefore in a sense are Gods and Goddesses! We believe that all humans are Eternal, that we have never been born and therefore we can never die. Yes, we have a physical body, but so does the butterfly have a shell, a larva that then transforms into their true nature. We believe that we are in that process, becoming our true self! We believe that all humans have all the knowledge we need, and that whatever questions we have, the answers reside within ourselves. The Mystery School was established only to assist humans to find those answers, not to give them! We believe that humans are constructed by three components, physical body, soul and spirit and that all three of these need to be taken care of through wisdom, nurturing, and healing. The Mystery School Lineage provides this with ancient metaphysical tools used and perfected over thousands of years. The Lineage has focused on working with and creating tools to handle the complicated machine or the computer of the human vehicle, what we call the MIND. Our tools are aimed to help each individual take back control of this vehicle for themselves so they can create a better life. We believe that all of our physical manifestations start within the mind thus it is so important to take good care of it! We believe that humans are born as two different genders, male and female, as so proven by biology and that the science of this is accurate. We then believe in the individual’s freedom to regard themselves as whatever or whoever makes them happy, but that the facts are indisputable that our foundational physicality is that we are all born either male or female and that there are undeniable differences in that foundation. We furthermore believe that we have certain archetypes for us to follow and strive to be like, these all being Gods and Goddesses of ancient times on earth, bringing us good values and traits for us to follow and admire. These archetypes have inspired us humans for thousands of years and they define our lives in every way, allowing us to overcome any obstacle that comes before us, to grow greater than our previous self and rise victorious in life. Without these divine archetypes we would not nor could we attain such heights of human potential. We believe in the essential goodness of all humans or their capacity for such, even though history may show different. Humans are innately good, and with the correct environmental influence and inner self work we can accomplish our highest human potential to do good! We believe in the right of self-determination as well as taking full responsibility for one’s own thoughts, actions and words in all situations. We believe that the true ownership of those things is laid at the feet of the individual self, whether it bares good or bad fruit for themselves or others. We believe that the character and integrity of a individual is far more important and meaningful than the identification of one by a group or a collective. We believe people should have the freedom to express themselves in a healthy way, unburdened by any constraint to conform to a particular group or person’s personal opinions or acceptance of those views. We believe in the power of humans to create a better world and that with the correct nurturing we can accomplish that goal. This would not be accomplished with any one organization (including the Modern Mystery School), religion or otherwise such, but rather through the power of the people themselves, led by their love of freedom, acceptance of themselves and others and peace! MODERN MYSTERY SCHOOL CORE VALUES We value life as we know it, that sacred spark from the universe that can and will ignite the world to become a better place for us all. We value every individual, no matter who or what they are, by what name they go or ideas they have. We will do our best to make certain that they can express themselves in the most healthy and positive way possible for humans. We value that, after the awakening of the inner being, there is a need for self-expression of their soul, their inner feelings and thoughts. We welcome that expression and see it as a part of our organization, as a part of who and what we are. We value being different, we see it as being unique. We welcome those who suffer from the ignorance and judgement of others who do not understand nor accept that uniqueness. We value society, as it has given us the opportunity to serve the greater good to a larger audience. We value Governments of countries who try to do their best to take care of their citizens. We value those who want to create a positive change in the world and we gladly support their efforts.


Lineage is an important factor in determining the legitimacy, integrity and authority that an authentic Mystery School holds. The lineage of the Modern Mystery School (MMS) dates back to the times of King Salomon and has therefore, over 3,000 years of history and lineage. While the mystery school tradition is much older than that, the lineage of the MMS and its teachings can be verified and traced back to the teachings of King Salomon himself. Lineage, by definition, means a lineal descent from an ancestor, ancestry or pedigree. The Modern Mystery School has persisted through time an ancient tradition of sharing of knowledge from teacher to student, affirmed by the holy process of initiation. The lineal and direct transfer of information in this fashion has preserved the virtue and honour of the mystery school tradition, which has held the secrets of God, the universe and keys to true spiritual power since the beginning of time. This wisdom and power is available to all who truly seek it and are willing to honour its sacred nature by walking the Path of Initiation. Initiation in combination with the unbroken lineage empowers the Adept to engage in the Great Work: creating a better world and living in accordance with their true potential and life purpose. The great masters have all walked upon the path of initiation in the mystery school tradition, which has led them to fulfill their promise to God while being here on this earth. In the Modern Mystery School, the integrity of our lineage is of utmost importance and preserved through many methods, including: Initiation into Adepthood (first initiation) as well as the various stages of progression, paths and certification Annual Professional Developement for Certified MMS Life Activation Practitioners, Healers, Teachers & Guides to uphold the quality in healing modalities and services provided Apprenticeship training for Guides, Master Teachers, International Instructors and Program Leaders to ensure teachers of any subject are in full alignment with teachings and can offer the highest quality of energy On-going training: Initiates of varying degrees —Adepts, Life Activation Practitioners, Guides, Ritual Masters, International Instructors — are invited several times a year to ongoing training to expand their proficiency and expertise. Being a part of the Modern Mystery School lineage is also being a part of a family. The MMS is a global tribe of brothers and sisters who are dedicated to the empowerment and betterment of humanity through spirituality and service to all. LINEAGE HOLDERS All lineages have main key holders, individuals who hold and anchor the lineage on the planet and hold the authority to keep the door of the mystery school open to those who seek the Light. In this lineage, the main key holders are titled the Third Order and in union, they administer and attend to maintaining the purity of the lineage and its teachings. Learn more about each of the members of the Third Order by clicking on the link to their bio below: The keys to this lineage are held by three initiates: Ipsissimus Gudni GED Gudnason, Founder of the Modern Mystery School Ipsissimus Dave THOR Lanyon Ipsissimus Hideto REI Nakagome THE COUNCIL OF TWELVE In 2017, when the Third Order was initiated, the Council of 12 was also activated. The Council of 12 is a group of 12 women, high-level initiates from all over the world who serve as leadership for the Modern Mystery School. The Council of 12 work directly with the Third Order to execute the directives of the Hierarchy of Light for service to humanity on this earth. The 12 women provide council, confirmation and conference to the members of the Third Order about the various projects and missions of the MMS. As of 2018, the first women to occupy the seats on the Council of 12 are: East Eiko Gudnason Luisa Nakagome Tsukiko Kimura Maki Otani Suzuki Kitamura Yoda Asuza West Franca Lanyon Kate Bartram-Brown Rita van den Berg Liza Rossi Ann Donnelly Theresa Bullard The women who occupy the seats of the Council of 12 rotate through their roles as is needed so you will see some of these women shift and change year-to-year. The installation in 2017 has allowed for the Goddess power and connection with the Shekinah to be anchored through these structures of the Third Order. This manifests as the implementation of the various levels of operation required for the running of the Modern Mystery School.


By definition, a Mystery School is a body of initiates who have dedicated themselves to preserving, protecting and perpetuating the mystery teachings. Throughout the ages the Mystery Schools have hidden in plain sight. They have built noble temples all over the world and provided services both to the public and behind closed doors for only ‘those who have eyes to see,’ and ‘those who have ears to hear.’ The initiates are those who are known as the Guardians, the Protectors, the Light bearers, the Teachers, the Healers, the Record Keepers, the Magicians, and the Watchers, among many other names. WHY ARE MYSTERY SCHOOLS A MYSTERY? Until very recently, mystery school teachings were kept under lock and key in their respective institutions. These teachings are the keys to living an enlightened and empowered life. There was a time when all of humanity used to live, think and act with a common understanding that was in alignment with the greater good of all. That time has long since passed, and these keys of enlightenment became a threat to forces that seek to control humanity. These forces, individuals, governments and others have tried to eliminate these sacred teachings, sometimes in overt ways. The agendas of wars from ancient and modern days were not always about what the history books may tell us. The mystery school teachings were forced to go underground in order to protect and preserve the sacred teachings and rites. Since then, one would have to be invited in to the school to study after careful observation, and only once that individual had truly proven themselves ready and dedicated. Many mystery schools to this day still operate in this way. However, the Modern Mystery School is considered an “open” mystery school, allowing those who aspire to higher knowledge to do so while living in and among the world. There are massive shifts of energy occurring on the planet today, and humanity is once again waking up to its true divine nature. It is time once again to live in an enlightened society. The Modern Mystery School believes in giving everyone the right to choose to pursue the path of initiation into the Light, by creating the opportunity and opening its doors to all who seek it. We are ready to take the next step forward in our evolution, to embrace our divinity here in the physical. HOW MANY MYSTERY SCHOOLS ARE THERE? There are 7 Ancient Mystery Schools on the planet. These 7 are located in North America, England, Romania, Australia, Japan, Tibet and Africa. Six of these schools are closed to the public. The Modern Mystery School is the only school open to the public. It is the only school to publicly advertise and promote the initiatory path into The Great Brotherhood and Sisterhood of Light. The MMS currently has centres located throughout Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Brazil, Japan, South Africa, the Caribbean, the Philippines and is constantly growing throughout the world. HOW DO YOU KNOW IF A MYSTERY SCHOOL IS REAL? There are many mystery-style organizations that share gnostic and esoteric teachings with its students. While some of these organizations may have validity in their teachings, however what is important in determining legitimacy for a mystery school is their lineage. More about The Modern Mystery School Who Are We?

All authentic lineages have individuals who hold and anchor the energy, or keys, of the lineage for the planet. These main Key holders act to keep the teachings and the lineage pure so that those who seek to learn within the lineage receive effective and accurate information, tools and experiences.


In this lineage, the Third Order is the title given to these main Key holders. They work in cooperation to maintain the integrity of the lineage and its teachings. Learn more about each of the members of the Third Order by clicking on the link to their bio above.

The Counsel of Twelve is a group of twelve women from around the globe who are high initiates and serve as leadership for the Modern Mystery School, working closely with the Third Order on the projects and missions of the Modern Mystery School.


The Counsel of Twelve also serves to anchor Divine Feminine energy, Goddess energy, within the structure of the Modern Mystery School. This structure is a reflection and expression acknowledging the importance of the respectful and balanced cooperation and collaboration of Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine energies in creating effectively in the world. The members of this Counsel rotate periodically as is necessary.

The leadership team for the Modern Mystery School is made up of International Instructors and Specialty Teachers who have received advanced metaphysical training within the lineage teachings and work together to uphold the quality and integrity of the teachings provided by MMS. They are held to the highest standard in this role and act as representatives of MMS as a whole.

They are located all over the Western World – from Canada to Brazil to South Africa to the US to the UK.

Local Area Leaders

In addition to the International Instructors, we have many local area leaders and teachers who teach classes locally and may travel to teach classes to various MMS Centers or in areas where a Guide may host them. They will also teach during an international program where classes such Healers Academy, Teachers Academy, etc., will be scheduled.
