with the support of a community dedicated to mutual growth and evolution
The Members Circle is an online community that nurtures and inspires a growing group of sincere spiritual practitioners and mystical adepts.

When people ask me what is the most important thing they can do to continue to awaken and grow, I always suggest they join The Mystery School Members Circle.

That’s because here they will receive weekly guidance from me, as well as the wisdom and insight of a number of other amazing teachers.

And, it all happens within a virtual community where everyone is encouraged to share their gifts and support each other’s continued evolution.

I honestly don’t know of any other online community quite like it.

Sincerely,

Spiritual Liberation and Paradigm Shifting

The mission of the Members Circle is to gather a global community of inspired and awakening individuals who work together to co-evolve into ever-deepening connection with the radical source of love and wisdom that is our True Self.

Following in the great esoteric tradition of ancient mystery schools, we look beyond the surface of reality to uncover the deep, secret, inner workings of the cosmos. The people you find here are spiritual practitioners, awakened mystics, artists, luminaries, and social architects.

You will find a wealth of resources that offer valuable assistance for your own awakening process, as well as programs, courses and retreats offered throughout the year. The quality of content and engagement you find will ignite your spiritual passion and inspire you to realize your highest potential.

Our community’s founder, Jeff Carreira, is a respected and globally recognized teacher of meditation and awakening. In the Members Circle he offers regular classes and retreats, so you can work with him all year long.

In addition there are a growing number of other excellent teachers who regularly offer their own programs. When you find a teacher you resonate with and want to learn from, you can join their teacher group and cultivate a relationship with them.

As a member you will also be encouraged to share your wisdom in our virtual classroom. We look forward to seeing what you will add to our co-evolutionary community.

Become an
Artist of Possibility

The true benefit of spiritual freedom and mystical illumination are the unimaginable depths of creative potential they release in us. When our hearts and minds are freed from the habitual ways that we have been taught to think and feel, we become profoundly available to respond to life in ways we never could have imagined before.

An Artist of Possibility is exactly this type of liberated individual. They see everything differently. They live in the same world as everyone else, but they are looking at it through different eyes.

If you’re reading this, it probably describes you.

As we discover the deep unbounded freedom at the core of our being, we are released from the familiar experience of reality and enter into the mysterious and unimaginable expanse beyond the ordinary. Here we experience new possibilities and gain riches of insight that we feel compelled to share.

The Members Circle will support you to articulate and express the depths of realization that you have discovered. If you have wisdom, experience, and expertise to share, you are invited to offer it as a course in our virtual classroom, or an ongoing discussion or study group.

This is truly a co-evolutionary community. We are growing together. Learning from each other, and supporting the emergence of all of our higher potentials. Together we strive to shift into a new paradigm, create a new world, and discover what it means to live an awakened life.

"Bravo! You truly are leading the way to a new order of mystery schools - in the clear ways you offer towards speciation, evolutionary becoming, and preparing people to be the change that can make the change in our world and time."

Four Reasons to Join the Members Circle
Image
Receive ongoing guidance from Jeff Carreira and learn about his latest innovations and discoveries.

The Members Circle is where Jeff Carreira shares everything first, before his ideas and discoveries are incorporated into public programs. As a member you will learn about the practices, concepts, and inspiring luminaries that Jeff is discovering himself. You will find out about the books that are influencing him, the experiences and realizations he’s having, and the periodic insights that shape his work.

Jeff provides weekly video teachings and guided meditations, monthly community discussion calls, and two daylong retreats, two five-day attunement retreats and two four week classes each year. The retreats and classes are delivered over Zoom video conferencing.


Image
Sustain your breakthrough realizations and continually deepen into awakened awareness.

Many of us have already realized that the breakthrough realizations and insights we have during extended retreats or intensive programs quickly fade once we return to daily life.

Many of us wonder what we can do to maintain and deepen our hard won realizations. Wisdom traditions from around the world will tell you that the most important single thing you can do to safeguard and expand your spiritual attainment is stay connected with like-minded people.

We don’t want our breakthroughs to fade, we want to sustain them, integrate them, and build on them. That’s why we need to be continually refreshed with new ideas and perspectives and opportunities to explore them with others. This is what you will find in The Mystery School Members Circle.


Image
Develop your own voice and learn to articulate and share your wisdom confidently with others.

The Members Circle is a gathering of people who have wisdom to share and a deep desire to awaken the world.

In addition to providing a context for your own growth, the Members Circle also supports and empowers you to share the depth that you’ve brought with you.

Our members don’t just take courses and participate in programs; they lead them as well. Any member who wants to share their expertise within the community will find a receptive audience to share it with.

As a member, you will receive support and encouragement to design and teach classes or facilitate discussion groups in our video conference room. The Members Circle is a perfect forum to experience the thrill of sharing your wisdom with others.


Image
Work with a growing group of emerging teachers/facilitators who each have unique wisdom and expertise to share

Within our community a number of people have emerged over time to become profound sources of wisdom and inspiration for everyone. These individuals offer regular classes and programs, lead retreats, and facilitate study and discussion groups.

As a member you can work with, and learn from, any or all of these wonderful people. You will find that each of them has been sincerely devoted to their area of interest and developed their wisdom over extended periods of time.

Each of our teachers/facilitators maintains a sub-group within the Members Circle and when you find someone you feel drawn to, you can join their group to receive additional resources and be in regular communication with them.

Plus the e-book and video program:
Creative Illumination:
A Handbook for Artists of Possibility

By Jeff Carreira
Image

In this 40 page handbook and 12-part video program, Jeff Carreira explores the four foundational elements of his teaching: Spiritual Freedom, Creative Illumination, Inner Communion, and Paradigm Shifting.

Each of these four elements is clearly explained in a beautifully illustrated handbook and the video series that accompanies it. Together they will be a constant reference point for your work in the Members Circle.

Why Others Have Joined
The Mystery School for a New Paradigm
Members Circle

Larry Weiss

I’m in the Mystery School community to celebrate, learn & create a community of awakening beings. For over 40 years I’ve been searching, learning and growing as a spiritual being; the way to practice being that being is in relationship. And this MS community is filled with beautiful people sharing this awakening path. What a blessing!

Let’s continue to make it a rich and rewarding experience!

Graeme Burn

If only I lived just around the corner from you all! We could saunter when we felt like it, have surprise meetings and unexpected encounters. But I don’t and what Jeff has started and pulled us into is the next best thing. And it’s very good: alive, fresh, thought-provoking and full of a sense of togetherness and wonder.

Kimberlee Doyle

What inspired me to join the Members Circle was you Jeff. I love your teachings, your meditations, your mind, your humor, and I share your desire to shift our consciousness, our paradigm. I wanted to stay connected. And now after my first awesome summer retreat with you I am excited to stay connected and in community with all the others I have met who share this desire and commitment to expand and shift consciousness. And as Graeme Burn said since we don’t live around the corner from each other this is the next best thing.

Jeffrey Sullivan

It’s something remarkable to be in a group of people, a tiny miracle we take for grant far too easily. And to be here with a group of people hungry for transformation and awakening is something extra special. I too have seen the collective power that can lift all those residing within it. Why am I here… to engage in the collective exploration of living in and as a mystery? Mystery School seems an apt name for this process. It seems like mystery, in the sense in which it’s intended here, has all but fallen out of fashion. Mystery these days is simply, for most, a puzzle to be solved and not the true state of things.

Adriana Colotti Comel

It has been refreshing for me to re-introduce meditation in my daily life. Now, everyday I do the guided meditations and then I journal … this has inspired my creative poetry to develop and in the Members Blog I already posted 4 original posts to share my experience with the community. I love also the very inspiring monthly talks and group meetings and the posts and comments that make me feel part of a community of shared values...I am very grateful to the members circle that make me feel that we are not alone in this extraordinary journey called life on planet earth. Thank you all and specially you Jeff for your wonderful initiatives!

Terry Vartanyan

I’m here because I am consumed with knowing what’s true and who we really are beyond what our senses indicate. There’s a depth of passion that arises deep within to pursue awakening along with a quiet, yet driving desire to become my most authentic self. Connection & interaction with a community of people like those here and at the recent retreat feeds my soul. Ultimately, I want my life to count in the world…

Keith Ohlsen

There was a longing for something bigger, better to happen in daily life. My experiences weren’t fulfilling , leaving a feeling of emptiness. This started changing when I came into contact with Jeff’s teachings. There was a sense of something greater being available. Upon reading the description of Jeff’s ideas of this member’s circle, there was no doubt that I wanted to participate. The experiences have exceeded any expectations that I had. Awareness is readily available no matter how I feel or if I am aware of it or not. Meditation brings out the Truth of this. It is humbling and a blessing to participate in such a group.

Cancellation Policy

We offer a full, no-questions-asked, 30 day money-back guarantee if you decide you want to cancel your membership subscription within 30 days of joining.

Frequently Asked Questions
How much time will I need to participate effectively in the Members Circle?

Unlike some of my more intensive courses, the Members Circle is designed to fit into even a busy life.

Minimally I suggest watching the 5min video each week and using the 20 min guided meditation at least twice. If you give yourself another hour or two each month to explore some of the additional resources or participate in the monthly discussion you will find that an average of an hour a week will yield tremendous value over time.

That being said, like anything, the more you give to it, the more you'll likely get out of it. Meditating every day, spending more time exploring the audio library and the member only eCourses, as well as engaging with other members, will all enrich your experience.

What's the ideal computer setup for accessing the Online Membership Portal

To access the online membership portal, please use a computer with the the most recent version of your preferred web browser, and a reliable internet connection

Can I download audio and video rather than streaming them on my computer?

You will be able to download any audio recordings and transcripts provided as part of included content, however you will not be able to download the videos. You will only be able to stream the videos online.

Is this a one-time payment or a monthly payment?

There are two payment options. You can choose to pay a monthly subscription fee or an annual subscription fee. By choosing the annual subscription fee you will save money over the course of a year.

Both payment options are on-going subscriptions until cancelled.

Do you have a refund policy?

We offer a full, no-questions-asked, 30 day money-back guarantee if you decide you want to cancel your membership subscription within 30 days of joining.

If you choose to cancel past 30-days of your joining date your billing for subsequent payments will be stopped and your membership will remain active until the end of the last period you have paid for. No refunds of payments already made will be awarded.

I need to contact support as I have more questions. How do I do this?
