Five Minute Mystic: What Does a Mystic Believe


A non-sectarian introduction to the ideas behind mysticism, I’ll explain some of the root assumptions underlying most mystical thinking. Key goal of the session: everyone attending should know the answer to the joke: What did the mystic say to the hotdog vendor?

Using graphics and metaphors, I’ll go through the basis of mystical belief, and what the implications of this belief are (and why mystics of all religions are essentially alike). This is intended as more of an academic introduction than one whose goal is to make people mystics. Really…no proselytizing.
