Mysticisms throughout the World attempt to unite man with the Divine, with Nature, with himself, and with others. Connection. Embracing possibilities. Opening our minds to new realities. Experiencing and exploring both inner and outer worlds, under the guidance of traditional teachings or spontaneous and idiosyncratic journeys, mysticisms from East and West, Ancient and Modern, communal and individual, ritual-based or abstracted into the heights of intellect and thought, all these ventures into the unknown have colored humanity in its past, present and certain future.
