An unprecedented opportunity to discover the priceless jewels hidden within the depths of esoteric Christianity and to create the inner transformation that unites heaven and earth...
Be prepared to radically open your heart, expand your mind, awaken to an embodied divinity, and be inspired to walk a path of sacred action in the world
If you’re like most Westerners, you were likely raised in some form of Christian faith, or at least had your spiritual life strongly influenced by it.
But as time progressed and you matured on your spiritual path, you may have grown away from the Christian tradition.
In our internet-driven, post-modern world, with virtually every spiritual tradition now available to us – from yoga to vipassana to human potential workshops – Christianity may now seem a little passé.
Perhaps you even “threw out the baby with the bathwater” by rejecting all of the esoteric wisdom hidden within the life and teachings of Jesus.
When we also consider the injustices that have been committed in the name of religion, it’s easy to understand why many people have left behind their religious roots in favor of a more “spiritual but not religious” path.
But what if there was a deeper message and higher potential hidden within the Christian lineage that could help you crack open your heart, awaken you to an embodied divinity, and inspire you to walk a path of sacred action in the world?
What if the prophecies of a Second Coming were not about the arrival of a Messiah, but instead refers to hundreds, then thousands and even millions who dare to walk in Jesus’ footsteps and become divine humans? And what if this is part of the change that the world really needs now?
By seeing Jesus’s life with fresh eyes, we take him off the pedestal as an untouchable Savior and begin to see him as a way-shower for all of us to embody more of our innate divinity as we co-create a more just and compassionate world.
Seen in this new light, the Christ path is a gateway into our divinity, creating a sacred marriage of heaven and earth, literally bringing more Godforce down into form through our bodies and relationships. This requires a healing of the split of masculine and feminine. It requires a passion for justice. It means that we pass through some intense purifying fires – what some know as the transfiguration. We learn to heal. Love. Speak total truth. And serve.
And it’s exactly what Jesus himself meant when he said, “All these things ye shall do and more.”
The Christ that Christians Often Don’t Hear About
It’s important to remember that Jesus himself was not a Christian; he was in fact a mystic, a maverick, and some might even say a rebel. The stories of his early travels to places such as Egypt and India have credible evidence and indicate that Jesus was much more experienced with a diversity of paths than we have been led to believe.
He had an unusually egalitarian relationship with women, broke social taboos and boundaries, and challenged the hypocrisy of those in power.
Also, as much as he taught about the importance of forgiveness and “loving thy neighbor,” he also embodied a fierce love and passion for justice unrivaled by other major spiritual teachers throughout history.
And yet, over the millennia, the Christian Church has masked the full intensity, splendor and esoteric depth of Jesus’ teachings and consequently turned him into a caricature of his true self, which was profoundly human as well as radiantly divine. These seeds were planted early and by the time Christianity became the state religion of Rome, much of its raw, liberating message was lost. In the process, we forgot that we ourselves can also be divinized.
Jesus taught that there was nothing in him that is not in us. But it’s far easier to put him on a pedestal as the “only” Son of God rather than learn from his example and walk in his shoes.
Rediscovering the Hidden Teaching and Meaning of the Christ Path
Fortunately, there is a very gifted teacher that is blazing a trail back into the sacred heart of the mysteries buried in the depths of the Christian lineage.
That man is the renowned mystic Andrew Harvey.
You may know Andrew as the prolific author of over 30 books and spiritual classics, including The Essential Mystics, The Son of Man and The Heart of Yoga, but if you haven’t read his work or heard him speak, prepare to be amazed.
Andrew is one of the world’s leading sacred scholars, as well one of the most profoundly inspired and illuminating speakers on the subject of esoteric Christianity and mysticism.
According to Andrew, the world is at a precipice and we need a spiritual path that goes beyond love and light to give us a roadmap for the transfiguration of our world.
Andrew believes that the deeper Christ teachings hold the essential key for our individual healing and collective awakening: they are the gateway into the sacred marriage of divine feminine and masculine, the portal for understanding the dark night, and the guide to the alchemical journey in which we turn our lead into gold.
In Andrew’s view, it’s time for the world to embrace a full spectrum view of Jesus, one that encompasses his embodiment as well as his transcendence, his awakened heart and his fierce love in action.
This full spectrum path can help us address the urgent crises that we now face.
Contrary to popular belief, Jesus’ central message was not to blindly follow him into some transcendent paradise, but to discover the Christ within you, and within all things, and to thus embody the divine human, literally marrying heaven with earth. That is the real solution to our current challenges.
This is why we are so excited to offer this groundbreaking 7-week course with Andrew Harvey entitled: The Christ Path.
During this transformational training you will dive deep into the mysteries of Jesus’ hidden teachings and the mystics who followed him and discover how to embody more divinity in your daily life.
If you’re ready to rediscover the profound beauty and transformative wisdom hidden within the Christian lineage, this training is for you.
A Powerful Initiation Into Your Christ Nature
The Christ Path is more of an initiation or a rite of passage than a typical online course.
During the 7-week journey, Andrew will illuminate many myths about the historical Jesus and tip over a few “sacred cows” about religion in general. He’ll bring forward truths about sacred sexuality, radical embodiment, and the birth of the truly Divine Child in each of us. He’ll also rattle the cages of limiting beliefs
we have about ourselves and call us into profound service.
So if you’re fixated on bliss alone, escapism or any form of fundamentalism, this course is definitely not for you.
However, if you are on a spiritual path with an open heart and mind, and are looking for a more embodied, real and full-spectrum teaching to awaken the full divinity within you, then this training is perfect for you. It will resurrect your relationship with the Christian tradition and place it in a truly global, post-modern context.
Over this 7-session virtual intensive, Andrew will guide you through the core fundamentals and practices to awaken and embody Christ consciousness and energy in your daily life. You’ll learn the essential stages of the divinization process and experience a clear vision of how this evolution into divine humanity unfolds.
You’ll reconnect with the esoteric teachings of Jesus and understand how to act in alignment with sacred love and wisdom in the world.
You’ll also experience potent practices of heart, mind and body that you can consistently apply – so that divine love and wisdom can act through you to transform the world.
What You’ll Discover in These 7 Modules
Each teaching, contemplation and training session will build harmoniously upon the next, so that you’ll develop a complete, holistic understanding of the practices, tools and principles you’ll need to engage the Christ path with clarity, rigor, and transformative power.

The Dark Force and Transformation
Audio training with Caroline Myss and Andrew Harvey
One of the most vexing spiritual questions has to do with the nature of evil – otherwise known as the shadow or the Dark Force – and how best to address it with spiritual maturity. New age philosophies often simply ignore the subject or pretend it doesn’t exist. Fundamentalists create wars against perceived evil without owning it in themselves.
In this groundbreaking dialogue, one of the most innovative mystical teachers of our day, Caroline Myss, dialogues with Andrew on how we can develop a psychologically and spiritually sophisticated view of the Dark Force and bravely address worldly horrors without simply battling our own shadow projections. When we can see the Dark Force operating in our lives with honesty and own the piece of our hearts that indulges in destructive behaviors, we can act in a far more clear-eyed way in the face of injustice, depravity, and other perils of embodied life. This sophistication is especially important as we address the numerous humanitarian crises we are faced with. Get ready for a scintillating and illuminating dialogue between two great mystics and committed activists.
Caroline Myss is a five-time New York Times bestselling author and internationally renowned speaker in the fields of human consciousness, spirituality and mysticism, health, energy medicine, and the science of medical intuition. Caroline established her own educational institute in 2003, CMED (Caroline Myss Education), which offers a diverse array of programs devoted to personal development and draws students from all over the world. In addition to hosting a weekly radio show on the Hay House network, Caroline maintains a rigorous international workshop and lecture schedule.
Christ Path Intensive Audio Package
3 audio sessions from Andrew’s Christ Path Advanced Program
For this special package, Andrew specifically picked these 3 sessions from his 9 month Christ Path Intensive course as important enhancements to your 7-module journey. You’ll receive:
Session 1: Mary as the Black Madonna
The Black Madonna has been a beloved icon of devotion for Andrew for over 25 years. In this rich, 90 minute recording, he shares all that has drawn him to her. You will learn about her mysterious origins, attempts by patriarchal forces to suppress her original meaning, and how you can become even closer to Christ through your own embodiment of her essence. Through Andrew’s personal stories, historical accounts, and poetry, this very special audio brings you into the fullness of this Madonna’s centuries’ old energies. You’ll learn that by embracing these energies, especially her darkness – which often comes to us in the breaking open of our hearts – we most fully learn compassion. The way of the Black Madonna also shows us passion, naked honesty, vibrancy, gypsy wildness, and the wisdom of what needs to be done–for us as individuals and for the world.
Session 2:Two Revelations of the Black Madonna
In this deep dive into the mystical secrets of the Black Madonna, Andrew invites you to open to the dark Mary as mother of all, the Earth and the Heavens. You will learn the gifts of a spiritual journey that includes surrendering to this revered icon and allowing her wild, fiery passion, what Andrew calls true divine love, to fill your heart. This special 90-minute audio includes the seven aspects of the Black Madonna, which in knowing completely and surrendering to, you can make a quantum leap in your own evolution. Andrew shares that it is our ever-deepening awareness of her that is the key to understanding our time, the birth of the Divine and of our own inner Christ.
Session 3: Jesus as Shaman
In this special 90-minute session with Andrew, you’ll learn about and experience the depths of passion and power in Jesus as Shaman. Andrew shares the universal story and hard-earned transformation of the Shaman: his intense spiritual crisis, his separation from his tribe, and the new-life creation born from his journey. And he shares his own powerful, not-to-be-missed story of Shamanic initiation. This is a profound audio that takes you to the core of power that emanates from Jesus’s Shamanic presence and guides you to your own human divinity for a truly embodied integration of Christ consciousness.
