Welcome to the very first edition of Cafe Mystic, a lovingly curated monthly newsletter for the modern mystic who likes to go deep and wide, featuring interesting ideas, people and unexpected gems of wisdom and understanding.
My vision is this: you and me, coffee and tea, sharing insights and understanding, building compassion and presence, and supporting each other with love and cooperation. I get to write and share, which are my favourite things ever, and you get an interesting, thoughtful and loving monthly missive in your inbox.
You might want to sit down and read it in one sitting, and explore the links over the month, or you might want to dip and dive over the weeks - it’s up to you.
Why email? Think about it: we have complete control over our inbox. We decide who and what enters and under what conditions, and if they don’t live up to expectations, we can simply press the magical unsubscribe button, and poof! it’s gone.
Your inbox can be a sacred space with you completely in charge, and taken more broadly, can be seen as a metaphor for our lives. If your inbox is a cluttered mess, filled with messages which you don’t like, are boring, irritating or irrelevant, sort it out right now.
Delete, unsubscribe, archive and file. Unlike social media, you have full control! I’ll wait here :).
There’s a lot of evidence this planet and its people are hopeful, loving and rapidly evolving - but that evidence is often hidden under the shouting of bad news and the white noise of triviality. I want Cafe Mystic to be the clear and harmonious note which reminds you of what a beautiful planet this is, and how amazing our fellow humans can be.
