Discover the Advanced Teachings and Transformative Practices Hidden Within the Depths of Esoteric Christianity to Transfigure Your Body, Mind, and Spirit and Birth a Truly Sacred Culture on Planet Earth
Be prepared to enter into the mysteries of Christ consciousness to deeply open your heart, divinize your shadow, and walk a path of sacred action in the world
Jesus said that we would someday do the same things as him, only greater.
Do we dare to take him at his word and see ourselves as capable of the depth of his divine realization? Can we dream of truly living from Christ consciousness?
Jesus As Wayshower
While it’s easier to see Jesus as an untouchable Savior, we believe that the Christ Path that he illuminated was never meant for just one individual to walk but eventually to become the pathway for many more to follow.
Seen in this light, Jesus was a wayshower rather than a singular Messiah, a pathfinder rather than a King above all.
He was a teacher who wanted students who would eventually surpass him.
Making this shift in our understanding opens a far more intimate, illuminating, and liberating relationship with one of history’s great spiritual leaders and the mystics who followed in his footsteps.
This fundamental shift allows us to see Christ consciousness as a higher octave of our OWN potential, if we allow ourselves to undergo the necessary purifications, healings and transformations to embody it.
The many predictions of a Second Coming of Christ, seen through this lens, are not about the return of the historical Jesus but about the activation of Christ consciousness on a wider scale, which has the potential to truly change our world.
Imagine not just one Jesus, but hundreds and eventually millions resembling him. Perhaps including you.
That is a very bold vision but it just may hold the key to the healing of our world.
Why the Christ Path is Vital for Our Moment in History
We are blessed to be alive at one of the most amazing moments in history, when all that was once hidden is now becoming revealed, including the esoteric truths of mystics from around the world.
Humanity is awakening to who we truly are; at once finite and infinite, matter and spirit, human and divine.
And yet, as the veils are slowly lifted from our eyes, the chasm also widens between those of us who are “waking up” and those of us that choose to “sleep.” The symptoms of that sleep are horrifying, as consumerism, waste and war create carnage in human society and our natural ecosystems.
We are fast approaching the crossroads of our destiny. Many believe that this decade is our crucial, turning-point time before we hit systemic breakdown.
If we continue down the path we are on, the path of unconscious materialism, we will face the potential destruction of ourselves and our planet.
However, if we can find the courage to wake up and walk a new path of sacred consciousness and peaceful culture, we will have a precious, rare opportunity to divinize ourselves and create this world in a wholly new way.
The path of Christ consciousness offers a foundational, even essential, set of teachings and practices for seeing THIS world as divine, given to us to steward in a way that leads to peace, communal prosperity, health, and justice.
It is a path based on Oneness and seeing ourselves as a sacred family. It is a path of blessing and wholeness and sacred embodiment.
It is a love-filled antidote to the soul-deadening, planet-destroying greed of materialism which holds enormous sway over our culture, our businesses, our politics, and our minds.
Humanity’s Rite of Passage
Whether we see it or not, our collective crises are now leading us into an intensely personal and collective rite of passage to face and heal our shadow in order to reclaim our full divinity and open to a higher octave of possibility.
If we resist this initiatory process, we only amplify our unconsciousness and the suffering it creates.
If we can consciously embrace this transformative journey, we not only transmute our suffering but also begin the alchemical process of divinizing our body, mind and soul.
According to the great evolutionary mystics throughout the ages, the ultimate purpose of evolution is to bring heaven to earth and birth God in man.
That is what awaits us on the other side of our rite of passage.
The Return of the Esoteric Christ
One of the greatest spiritual secrets guarded through the ages was that Jesus was both fully human and radically divine. He was in fact a demonstration of the kind of transformation that is possible for ALL of humanity as we enter this rite of passage.
Hidden within his remarkable life, he left us a complete spiritual map to transform human consciousness and create a truly sacred culture on planet earth.
And while more and more people are beginning to wake up to this profound truth, the question remains:
How can we decode, understand, and apply the ancient map of spiritual transformation that Jesus left us?
In other words, how do we REALLY manifest the Christ force in our modern lives?
Rediscovering the Advanced Teachings & Practices of the Christ Path
The good news is that there is a profoundly gifted teacher who has dedicated his life to unveiling the mystery of the esoteric Christ and making the most powerful teachings and practices available to those of us who are ready to receive it.
That man is the renowned mystic and scholar, Andrew Harvey.
Andrew is the prolific author of over 40 books and spiritual classics, including The Essential Mystics, The Son of Man and The Heart of Yoga. He’s also one of the most inspired and illuminating speakers on the subject of esoteric Christian mysticism. He has a remarkable gift for opening our eyes and peeling away the falsehoods to reveal the wild, liberating truth at the core.
On a personal level, he’s been through the fires of the inner Dark Night, the heart-opening illuminations, and the intense disillusionments that have cracked him open to Christ consciousness, bringing him to his knees again and again.
Andrew knows the terrain of the birthing of Christ consciousness in a way that few others do. Because of his scholarly depth and personal experience, there is perhaps no more articulate, passionate, and perceptive teacher to lead people on this journey.
And that is why we are so excited to offer – exclusive to The Shift Network – the groundbreaking Christ Path Advanced Intensive with him.
It’s the most rigorous, in-depth, no-holds-barred training that Andrew has ever offered at a distance. This sacred offering from his heart to yours is a chance to harvest the bounty of a lifetime of mystical practice and rigorous scholarship.
The Christ Path Advanced Intensive has been created for heart-centered, open-minded, globally-concerned seekers to undertake a profound, life-changing journey together.
Over nine months, participants will explore and deepen their relationship with Christ consciousness in a way that gives you full access to the profound blessings of this path.
The journey will help you clear away lingering falsehoods that have distorted Christian traditions. It will lead you instead into profound initiations, mind-expanding recognitions, and the next steps on your journey of transformation of body, mind, and soul.
You’ll have the chance to unlock the innermost, esoteric secrets of the Christ Path and receive the hidden truths, liberating practices, and profound blessings of Jesus and the many extraordinary mystics that followed him, from Meister Eckhart to Teresa of Avila to Father Bede Griffiths. You’ll deepen your understanding of the Divine Feminine, the Sacred Masculine and the birth through the Sacred Marriage of the Divine Child, the Divine Human.
The goal is to pioneer and practice a 21st century embodiment of the Christ: grounded in sacred action, suffused with wisdom, and illuminated by a divine fire.
To enter this journey, one need not be a Christian; spiritual seekers (and even atheists) from every tradition are welcome.
The only requirement is a commitment in your heart to walk the path with real dedication, since the Advanced Intensive is for those with a powerful love for this world and a sincere desire to become an emissary of the Divine.
Andrew has created this advanced training because he sees our world at a perilous precipice and recognizes the need for a spiritual path that gives us a roadmap for the transfiguration of ourselves and our world.
This personal transformation takes time – far more than a weekend workshop or introductory course can give. Nine months is the gestation period for a newborn baby and it can be the gestation period for the Christ within you as you undertake the hot, cool, and embodied practices that bring the Christ alive in your very cells and transform your heart, mind, soul and body.
If your view of the spiritual path is only of sweetness and light, this Intensive will not be for you; Andrew is unflinching in showing the ways that we evade suffering in a way that imperils us. He’ll challenge what you believe in ways that may sometimes be uncomfortable. He’ll speak into the heart of darkness, shadow, and horror.
He does this because he knows the real Christ fire requires an unflinching commitment to truth and to love.
And he also knows with utter surety that these teachings hold essential keys for our individual healing and collective awakening: they are the gateway into the sacred marriage and the guide to the alchemical journey in which we turn our lead into gold.
They are the key to becoming divine humans.
In Andrew’s view, it’s time for the world to embrace a more full-spectrum view of the Christ Path, one that encompasses embodiment as well as transcendence, the awakened heart and fierce love in action.
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, marrying heaven with earth, body and spirit, heart and mind, to become the co-creator on earth of the King-dom/Queen-dom.
That is the real solution to our current challenges.

More Praise for Andrew Harvey...
"Every age has its teachers, who keep the eternal truths alive for all of us. And when a generation is very, very lucky, it encounters a teacher so illumined that the words he delivers must be illumined as well. In the case of Andrew Harvey, the light he sheds is like a meteor burst across the inner sky.”
-Marianne Williamson, author of Everyday Grace
“Andrew is a genius and an inspired visionary who has the ability to interpret the meaning and significance of the chaos and patterns of change that are redirecting the compass of our contemporary culture. Andrew is a spiritual, intellectual, and cultural mystic whose passion is to awaken people to a new and essential empowerment in this world: sacred activism. He has defined and grounded the route, the means, and the way individuals can and should respond to the chaos and rapid changes that now characterize our contemporary spiritual and cultural life. Andrew’s research reflects his superb academic background as a professor at Oxford and his passion clearly reveals that his soul is on fire with a grace that comes from the Divine."
-Caroline Myss, Author of Anatomy of the Spirit and Sacred Contracts
"Amid the myriad challenges we face on earth – the population explosion, environmental degradation, nuclear proliferation, religious fundamentalism, terrorism, war, apocalypse-think, and more – it is easy to be overwhelmed by a sense of futility and hopelessness. Now comes a singularly courageous, charismatic individual, Andrew Harvey, with an answer to all of these challenges: personal transformation and empowerment through an encounter with the divine feminine. This process is not esoteric, but is entirely natural and as near as our own shadow. Harvey’s sacred activism is a corrective to the doomsayers and do-nothings who are part of our problems. He is a modern version of a fiery, Old-Testament prophet, whose words were ignored at great peril. We must attend to Andrew Harvey’s message. Not only will it help us humans regain our sanity, it just might save our skins."
-Larry Dossey, M.D., Author of The Extraordinary Healing Power of Ordinary Things
“Using humor, passion, and analysis, Andrew Harvey challenges us to wake up and get up off of our couches to become the spiritual activists we all can be. A powerful, provocative, prophetic appeal to sanity and activism for our apocalyptic times, this film is recommended for anyone who cares about the survival of their grandchildren or planet or both. Is anyone listening?”
-Reverend Matthew Fox, author, Creation Spirituality and founder of Wisdom University
“Andrew Harvey is one of the world’s irreplaceable resources.”
-Lance Morrow, writer, Time magazine
“Andrew Harvey challenges the Christian community to the depth of commitment required to be the change agent for this time in history.”
-Joy Jinks, Georgia
“I LOVED this course. It brought me to tears several times! The content was superb. I found Andrew himself to be such a shining example of the kind of human we can ALL be. He’s a great example of humility & grace, and his knowledge of the subject matter is both academic & personal. To live the way he does is something to aspire to – or to "let loose" from within! Thanks SO much! More, more, more Andrew Harvey, please!”
-Lisa Talamantez – Chicago, IL
“Andrew Harvey’s personal experiences and passion coupled with his extensive academic knowledge make this course exceptional.”
-Dr. Janet Smith Warfield Sarasota, FL
“If you have both an intellectual and a feeling sense of the mystic tradition, this is a must-do course. An extremely knowledgeable teacher, familiar with all the major traditions, will lead you along the path of his favourite teacher, Jesus, without the need to set aside any other of the major traditions or teachings. Highly recommended for providing depth of background, practices, and ways to apply the teaching as you go forward in your life. I finally see how to bring all of these facets of spiritual life together. A very important course!”
-Daphne, Vancouver, BC
The teachings by Andrew are very inspired, and the practices are very powerful. i have experienced growth in the contemplative dimenaion of my life and increased commitment in my path of sacred activism.
-Barbara, Portland, Maine

You can also use Skype credit/subscription or Google Voice to dial in to MaestroConference, and you’ll need to use your virtual keypad to enter your PIN and to indicate that you want to ask a question. Other options include calling cards and discount long-distance carriers, and we also have a webcast which is free to use from anywhere in the world.
