The Metaphysicians Mystery School

 

Throughout history and across cultures, beloved metaphysical practitioners have performed sacred healing work in their communities.

These practitioners include shamans of animist and tribal cultures, as well as ordained clergy of the world’s religions. 

We need those who feel called to fill these same roles today, says Dr. William Bloom, renowned educator and practitioner in metaphysics, shamanism, and spirituality.

You already have life-changing metaphysical skills you could be using every day. Perhaps you’re aware of this but haven’t yet learned how to harness this power effectively.

Within you right now is the ability to work with the subtle energies you sense operating in and around you and you can collaborate with these universal forces to empower your own spiritual path and illuminate the lives of others.

Join us for a year-long certification program with Dr. Bloom in what he refers to as a modern Mystery School and be initiated into the core concepts and practices of the world’s shamans, sorcerers, magicians, witches, priests, and priestesses.

 

WHO IS THIS PROGRAM FOR?

When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great, and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties, and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.
Patanjali

Our world is made of energy and consciousness, and filled with subtle energies and beings.

Do you have a sense of this subtle world?

Do you long to better understand it?

Are you called to cooperate and work with the subtle realms to serve your spiritual growth and support all of life?

You already have subtle experiences and intuitions now, your divine curiosity is inviting you to seek more wisdom and a deeper connection with Source as you expand your consciousness.

You’re naturally enquiring, empathic, intuitive, and perhaps even psychic.

You’re already engaged in metaphysical exploration and your soul is prompting you into more meaningful and magical activity.

This profound journey is designed for:

  • Serious Spiritual Enquirers Deepen your understanding and practical experience of the subtle realms.
  • Empaths and Intuitives Develop your natural gifts to be of greater service.
  • Celebrants, Ceremonialists & Clergy Understand and work more effectively with your blessings.
  • Shamanic & Pagan Practitioners Refine your skills and awareness in a holistic framework.
  • Philosophers Ground and integrate your inquiries with metaphysical experience.
  • Theologians Illuminate your study and contemplation with esoteric models and practice.
  • Counselors, Psychologists & Psychiatrists Expand your diagnostic and prescriptive toolkit through an appreciation of the spiritual dynamics of mental health crises.
  • Astrologers Delve more deeply than ever into the harmonic relationships between celestial bodies and human lives.
  • New Age Practitioners Draw upon metaphysical concepts to explore spirituality, energy healing, and consciousness expansion more deeply than ever.
  • Therapists, Healers & Integrative Medical Practitioners Deepen your understanding of Taoist and Vedic anatomical models, and the relationship between the dense physical body and the subtle physiology.
  • Writers & Artists Awaken to newfound inspiration as you explore the deeper meanings and existential questions in everything you create.

Your understanding and experience of metaphysical practices will deepen your sense of self and your meaningful place in the Universe. This in turn will spill over and radiate out to enhance and bless the lives of all those around you.

At the same time, your new practices with subtle beings and energies will help redeem and improve global vibrations and energies supporting harmony, justice, and peace on our planet.

This pioneering program will satisfy your heart, your mind, and your soul.

With a deep contentment, your spiritual development will quicken resulting in deeper connections, more love, and greater consciousness.

Whether your calling is to work openly or quietly, your attitude and actions as a servant of life will profoundly improve, becoming useful to all and blessed by Source.

 

THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE LEARNING EXPERIENCE WE’VE EVER OFFERED

Dr. Bloom and a team of instructional design experts have created one of the most comprehensive learning experiences The Shift Network has ever offered.

By the end of this year-long program, you’ll be well prepared to undertake your own journey working with the concepts and practices of the world’s shamans, sorcerers, magicians, witches, priests, and priestesses as you step into a spiritual role in your community and bring healing to your own life… and to those around you.

WHICH CERTIFICATION IS RIGHT FOR YOU?

Our two certification paths run concurrently over the course of 12 months. Scholar Practitioner Path students will have additional reading, work, and activities to complete during the program adding a deeper layer of learning to the foundational Practitioner Path.

PRACTITIONER PATH

The Practitioner Path is a year-long certification program where you’ll explore and refine your personal spiritual practice diving deep into the dynamics, dimensions, and denizens of the metaphysical domain and examine how to perceive, discern, and use your knowledge to serve and benefit others. Students completing the Practitioner Path will receive a Practitioner in Experiential Metaphysics Certificate as well as:

Increased levels of self-esteem and confidence leading to vastly improved relationships and life opportunities.

Spiritual and shamanic practices to support your psychological and physical wellbeing so you can cultivate more control over your own life and a clear understanding of its purpose.

Daily spiritual practices to keep you grounded as you step into your specific role as a metaphysical practitioner.

SCHOLAR PRACTITIONER PATH

About Dr. William Bloom

 

The Metaphysical Philosophy of Dr. William Bloom

 

William Bloom, PhD, is one of the UK’s leading educators and authors in the field of spirituality and wellbeing. He is the director of the Spiritual Companions Trust, which pioneered the first UK government-approved course in spirituality and health.

Since childhood, he’s experienced subtle energies and beings and has cultivated his ability to sense, interpret and cooperate with them. In his twenties, William gave up a hugely successful career based in London, retreating for two years among the Berbers in the High Atlas Mountains of southern Morocco, where he performed the most rigorous of all magical ceremonies, the Sacred Magic of Abramelin the Mage.

After returning to the UK, he integrated his private occult studies with a deep understanding of social psychology and mind-body medicine, pioneering the first UK mainstream vocational qualification in spirituality and health.

What People Are Saying About Dr. William Bloom’s Courses...

“William is truly a gift, and I enjoyed and looked forward to every session.”

I’ve done a lot of studying on death and dying, and have worked in hospice for many years but the presence William embodies in this course and the information he presents gave me an experiential learning that I feel I have embodied on a whole new level. William is truly a gift, and I enjoyed and looked forward to every session. The only thing I was sad about was that it ended! The seven weeks went by so quickly! William provided a space that was safe, relaxed, and spacious.
Diane, Ashland, Oregon

“Dr. Bloom’s insights and experiences were most inspiring.”

Dr. Bloom’s insights and experiences were most inspiring. I especially enjoyed the support regarding death, the processes involved, and the journey, meditations, and exercises that he shared with us. All this was most liberating an opportunity to let go of being caught in our own fear, trepidation, and unending grief, and instead welcoming the adventure of our own precious life and supporting loved ones who are in the throes of dying or who have moved on, no matter what that looked like from our side of the “veils” Instead we have a way of supporting them fully in their journey. So beautiful.
Laura, New York, New York

“William’s compassionate grasp and extensive knowledge of the topic provided me with real reassurance.”

William’s compassionate grasp and extensive knowledge of the topic provided me with real reassurance. He helped to normalize what could otherwise be quite a scary topic. He also brought lightness, warmth, and humor to the subject, which I really appreciated. I feel calmer now when I reflect on the end of life. That’s a good step forward for me.
Leigh, London, England

“William brought peacefulness into every aspect of The Sacred Way of Dying by sharing his own experiences.”

William brought peacefulness into every aspect of The Sacred Way of Dying by sharing his own experiences. He showed strength and compassion, which emotionally held our large group throughout difficult topics.
Lynn, Tenterden, England

“This course drew me closer to really believing the joy, release, and comfort I will find when I experience transitioning.”

My memory goes back to the comfort of being in my mother’s womb just before birth. It is a profound comfort like none I’ve experienced in life! And although I imagined that death would hold that same comfort, I still feared it. This course drew me closer to really believing the joy, release, and comfort I will find when I experience transitioning.
Cassandra Franklin-Barbajosa, Cheverly, Maryland

More Praise for Dr. William Bloom...

“William Bloom has an encyclopaedic knowledge of meditation.”

The Independent

 

“Britain’s leading and most experienced mind-body-spirit teacher.”

William Bloom is a modern Western mystic and considered by many to be Britain’s leading and most experienced mind-body-spirit teacher. The heart of his modernizing approach and inspiring courses is to help people discover their own best way to connect with the wonder and energy of life, and then support them in developing a regular spiritual practice.
Yoga Magazine

 

“A genius. Separates new-age nonsense from spiritual reality.”

Caroline Myss, internationally renowned speaker and author of Intimate Conversations with the Divine and Anatomy of the Spirit

 

“William’s wisdom and expert spiritual mentoring were practical, clarifying, and invaluable.”

meditation during the course made a huge difference to my spiritual development and peace of mind. And the compassionate listening we were regularly doing boosted my resilience. William’s wisdom and expert spiritual mentoring were practical, clarifying, and invaluable. After the course, I realized that year was one of my best years. I was in the flow state most of the time, and everything worked well in my life (personal and professional). I understood clearly that spiritual/transpersonal development can shift personal issues in a very efficient, elegant way and with ease, almost automatically. Many of my personal issues just disappeared because I’ve shifted to a mode of Being (as opposed to becoming). By going beyond myself, many blessings followed naturally and spontaneously. I attribute many of these benefits to this course one of the best investments in spiritual and personal development. I’m eternally grateful. 
Jan Cisek, environmental psychologist, London
