Connect with 350+ Global Members

Engage with people from around the world who share your passion for spiritual growth, transformation, and meaningful connection.

Realize your potential with the support of a community dedicated to mutual growth and evolution

The Members Circle provides structures that nurture and inspire an expanding community of globally networked spiritual practitioners and adepts.

When people ask me how to best continue to stay involved with my work I invariably suggest that they join The Mystery School for a New Paradigm Members Circle.

That’s because the Members Circle is where a growing global community of sincere and amazing people are exploring the fruits of deep spiritual practice, continually discovering new avenues to explore with me as my own journey unfolds.


Three reasons to join
the Members Circle.
# 1:

The Members Circle is where you can journey with Jeff Carreira and share in the discoveries he makes throughout his ongoing spiritual adventures.

The Members Circle is where Jeff Carreira shares his latest insights and discoveries first. As a member you will learn about any new practices, ideas, or luminaries that Jeff finds along the way. He shares the books that deeply impact him and any insights he gets from his own experience of spiritual deepening or breakthrough.

As a member you receive weekly videos and guided meditations from Jeff that give you the most up to the moment information about the work he is doing and the discoveries he makes.

You can also attend monthly discussions by conference call that Jeff facilitates. And each year he offers members four opportunities to work with him in depth. Two of these are daylong virtual meditation retreats and the other two are 4-part courses on spiritual themes.

# 2:

The Members Circle is where you can continually develop and deepen your own insights and realizations.

The vision of the Members Circle is to be a powerful virtual campus and online practice community that inspires and supports ever-deepening spiritual growth for all of its members - and that is exactly what’s happening!

Many of us have already realized that the tremendous breakthroughs and insights we might have during a spiritual retreat or an intensive program quickly fade away once we’re back in our daily life.

So many times people have asked me if there is a way that they can maintain and even deepen their breakthroughs and insights after the retreat or intensive - and the best way I know of to do that is to stay connected and engaged with like-minded people as much as possible.

We don’t want our transformative experiences to fade, we want to sustain them, integrate them, and build on them.

That’s why we need to be continually presented with new ideas and perspectives in forums of mutual interest where we can discuss our understanding with others.

This is how we keep our hearts and minds wide open all the time.

And this is the opportunity that the The Mystery School for a New Paradigm Members Circle offers you.

# 3:

The Members Circle is a place where you can develop your own capacity to share the wisdom and insight you've gained with others.

The Members Circle is first and foremost a gathering of Artists of Possibility who have wisdom to share and a deep desire to share it with the world.

In addition to providing you with new ideas and fresh perspectives to grow from, the Members Circle also empowers you to embrace the inner wisdom that you have to offer and develop your own capacity to share it with others.

Our members don’t just take courses, and that don’t just participate in programs - they have the chance to lead them as well. The resources provided to you as a member will build your confidence so that you will recognize the wisdom you have to share with the world and find your voice to share it with.

I’ve been blessed with a wonderful life. I continually pursue deeper spiritual insight and awakening and I have the privilege to lead retreats and teach courses to share everything I discover.

Your version of this kind of life is what I want for you as part of the Members Circle. I want you to discover your vision and your way of sharing, and to have the chance to start sharing it.

As part of the Members Circle you have the opportunity to teach classes in our dedicated video conference room. You can also start and facilitate discussion groups with other members on topics of interest to all. And of course, you can take classes or join discussions created by others.

The Members Circle is a perfect forum to experience the thrill of sharing your wisdom with others.

Whats Included in the Members Circle:
Weekly Videos

You will receive a short (approx. 5 to 8 min long) video each week in which I share what I’m learning in my ongoing exploration of awakening and mystical philosophy. What you learn each week will inspire and fuel your own growth by continually opening avenues of discovery.

And when it's relevant I’ll share resources for further exploration and/or exercises to deepen your understanding.

Weekly Guided Meditation Audio

You will also receive one 20-minute guided meditation each week.

These meditations will be contemplative in nature designed to shift your perception and experientially ground the ideas we're exploring.

Monthly Live
Discussion Calls

Once each month you’ll have the chance to join me for a 90-minute discussion session. These sessions, held via Zoom Video Conferencing, are a chance for us to discuss the insights that have emerged during the month. These sessions will be recorded and the recordings made available within 24hrs for those who are not able to participate live.

Virtual Retreats and Courses with Jeff Carreira

Every year Jeff Carreira offers four different opportunities to work with him live online via Zoom Video Conferencing.

He offers two daylong virtual meditation retreats open exclusively to Members Circle participants. These daylong retreats are held on Saturdays or Sundays and are designed to deepen your practice and catalyze breakthrough experiences.

He also offers two 4-6 week long live online courses open exclusively to Members Circle participants. These courses are designed to explore transformative perspectives on spiritual practice and mystical philosophy.

Creative Illumination:
A Handbook for Artists of Possibility

By Jeff Carreira

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.


Who Is the Members Circle for?
Anyone who wants to stay connected to Jeff Carreira and his ongoing spiritual explorations.
Anyone who is intrigued by the spiritual explorations and prolific creative output of Jeff Carreira will be able to stay closely informed about it all in the Members Circle. Membership offers both a comprehensive introduction to Jeff’s work as well as the chance to keep developing right along with him.

Any one who longs to be part of an inclusive global community of like-minded spiritual practitioners.

This circle is not exclusively designed for people who are working only with Jeff Carreira. We invite diversity of backgrounds and interests. Anyone who is aligned in spirit and enjoys engaging with a dynamic group of awakening kindred spirits is welcome and encouraged to join.

Anyone who recognizes that it’s time for them to take all the wisdom in their heart and share it with the world.

Perhaps the most unique and exciting opportunity of the Members Circle is having the chance to teach and facilitate programs to a global community of intelligent, inspired, and interested people. Our world needs bright lights of wisdom and to become one of those we must practice sharing the wisdom and experience we’ve gained.

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.

The freedom that you discover through this insight is yours as soon as you are willing to embrace all aspects of life. The guidance you receive in these pages will release your attention from the hypnotic trance of fear, worry and self-concern, until you come to rest in the deep and abiding peace of pure consciousness.

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?
