The Tushita Ashram Mystery School is not so much about the mastery of a subject but the Mastery of one’s person.
The fundamental point of view of the Tushita Ashram Mystery School is to stimulate and draw out the unique gift each person enters this life with. It is not about superimposing another belief system or religion or social programming onto the individual, but, rather, helping the individual towards the empowerment and enjoyment and satisfaction of their own purpose of Being.
Is the Tushita Ashram Mystery School associated with any religion or religious group?
No. The point of view of The Way of Life is based on the living teaching of wisdom masters and teachers, who have realised their true nature, which is the true nature of you and me and everybody (we just haven’t fully realised and embodied it yet, which is why we might want to attend the Mystery School). Realising your own true nature makes religions-as-we-know-them obsolete. At the same time you could say that realising and living your own true nature is the only religion, where our innate intelligence becomes the cultural system of behaviors and practices, world views, ethics, and social organisation that relate humanity to an order of existence. Not some outside authority or scripture or deceased god-realised master.
Who can attend Tushita Ashram Mystery School workshops and retreats?
Anyone. If a workshop or retreat or introductory event appeals to you, it is for you to do if you so choose. Also, as the wisdom teacher Yanchiji explains: “The Mystery School is dedicated to the advancement of love, service, cooperation, and understanding, in relation to all beings and all dimensions of society.
Tushita Ashram Mystery School is founded in the realisation of the holistic human being, and is therefore committed to drawing out the innate gifts towards humanity and all nature that every one of us comes with.
Education is not education unless it demands us to be students of Life. Otherwise it is merely programming.”
What do I need to bring to a workshop or retreat?
To whatever degree you can, bring an open heart and mind, plus whatever basic personal belongings you need to use on a daily basis, and (for most workshops/retreats) Koha/Donation for the teacher. Food, accommodation including linen are provided, and there is a tiny “mobile shop” where you can purchase items such as notebooks, pens and toothbrushes. There is also a small local dairy just up the road at walking distance, supplying the local community with daily needs.
How much does it cost to attend a workshop or retreat?
Workshops and retreats are individually priced, depending on the type and the length. Please check the information provided for each workshop, retreat or event you are interested in. Some of the introductory and public events are free of charge or by donation/koha only. Most of the workshops and retreats charge for food and accommodation only, and ask of you to give a donation/koha for the teacher.
