    Am I a mystic? 6 Signs you might be | The Seeker’s Guide to Mysticism, Part 5

    The search for divine union can feel like a pretty intangible thing. 
    It’s hard to grasp. By definition! We use words like darkness, apophatic, cloud of unknowing.
    And it’s pretty common to have experiences that feel mystical, but may have been more intuitive or serendipitous.
    That’s why many of the mystics point to qualities, or fruits in the mystic’s life, to discern whether someone is a mystic or not.
    Curious if you fit the description?
    Here are 6 of the signs the mystics name that you, too, might be a mystic.

    Using the Body for Inner Healing: EFT with Mitch Gainey

    Using the Body for Inner Healing: EFT with Mitch Gainey

    Growing up in an evangelical church, Mitch Gainey had some powerful experiences of the divine. However, coming into his identity as a gay man didn’t leave him much room outside of the attempts to “pray the gay away.” Today Mitch will share his story of emerging from the shame he had internalized to the freedom he found on his path to healing. 

    Much of that healing journey happened in and through his body, ultimately resulting in Mitch becoming a coach and counselor himself. We’ll talk about one of his favorite embodied practices, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique, also known as tapping), and how this practice taps into your body’s hardwiring so it can process, integrate, and ultimately heal itself.

    To learn more about Mitch’s work, visit www.mitchgainey.com.
