Mentorship Program

The Sacred Ecstatics Mentorship Program is a one-of-a-kind mystery school that teaches the practical know-how behind old school ecstatic spirituality, mysticism, healing, and shamanism. We mentor people who truly long for soul-igniting contact and union with the divine—the ultimate ecstatic experience that delivers authentic mystical gifts, real spiritual empowerment, and the most extraordinary infinite joy.

You will be mentored in the exhilarating practices and initiatory experiences that lead to an ecstatic mystical life that is spiritually on fire. These include:

Turning Up the Spiritual Heat

What makes Sacred Ecstatics stand apart is its spiritual heat, an unfamiliar experience to those taught to remain spiritually calm and cool. We bring back what ecstasy used to mean: the sizzling rapturous bliss that trembles and shakes the body. Spiritual heat enables the divine to surpass being a word game and become a physically experienced flame.

Installing the Sacred Vibration

This should be the most emphasized outcome of spirituality, yet it is absent from virtually every contemporary teaching and practice. The sacred vibration is the true mark of authentic initiation—it takes up residence in the body as a non-subtle force that is both physically and emotionally felt. Also called n/om by the Kalahari Bushmen, seiki by the Japanese tradition of seiki jutsu, and holy ghost power by the sanctified church, it is the dynamic behind mystical phenomena, ecstatic bliss, spiritual healing, and all varieties of religious experience.

Receiving Your Rope to God

You need a strong experiential connection to higher power in order to receive the sacred vibration and set your soul on fire. This divine hookup is the power line for sacred energy, the telephone line for mystical communication, the song line for holy music, the pipeline for spiritual gifts, and the mainline highway for visionary travel. The mystical rope – what the Kalahari Bushmen call a “rope to God” – provides a heart-to-heart relationship with your creator. It’s your true north and go to source.

Spiritual Cooking

This is where the extraordinary art of working with the three-step Sacred Ecstatics recipe comes alive. You’ll learn how to use unique ecstatic practices that light a spiritual fire and keep it burning. Getting spiritually cooked leads to all the extraordinary initiatory experiences as well as your subsequent ongoing renewal. Here you make contact with the sacred vibration, receive your rope, are spiritually rewired, and continuously recharged.

Visiting the Spiritual Classrooms

Spiritually ignited dreaming sends you to the “spiritual classrooms” for advanced mystical instruction and spiritual guidance. We help you aim for the most treasured mystical dreams that emphasize sacred emotion, song, and vibratory attunement rather than symbolic image, interpreted thought, and mind inflation. The higher the journey, the more you cook than look.

Sacred Ecstatics teaches you to ecstatically improvise rather than statically memorize. There are no institutionalized rituals, fixed methods, or rote practices because the sacred always brings the creative force of change. You can never predict what a spiritually cooked mystic, shaman, or healer will say or do because a divine higher power is in charge. Experience the spiritual revolution whose mystical wheel keeps turning and burning.

When you join the mentorship program you become part of a longstanding underground movement devoted to the exploration of higher mystery that makes spiritual history. We seek to mentor real mystics, saints, shamans, healers, and spiritual practitioners for our time. Sacred Ecstatics prioritizes the hunt for the sacred vibration and being spiritually on fire. Our teaching serves high mysticism, pervasive creativity, hilarious absurdity, and radically clear thought, all required for the heartfelt melt into ineffable joy.

Program Structure

The mentorship program is a one-year commitment that includes attendance at two intensives as well as a series of webinars with live Q&A, live podcasts, and private sessions. Intensives, online events, and private sessions are all led by Brad and Hillary.


The annual U.S. intensive is where all mentorship students gather in the mountains near Oracle, Arizona. Here you join others in setting an ecstatic fire that spiritually cooks everyone. The mentorship program begins and ends with your attendance at the intensive. Your first intensive includes an extra day and a half introduction where you learn some basic “cooking skills” to help you get the most out of the experience. For a description of the intensives, go here.

Daily Practices:

We teach you the simple yet powerful techniques required for the induction and conduction of ecstatic experience. Through a series of interactive webinars with live Q&A you are introduced to the eight experiential “stations” of Sacred Ecstatics. You will learn how to gather the ingredients required for spiritual cooking—a fascinating rhythm, spontaneous body movement, tonal alignment, and infusion of sacred emotion. The workout then familiarizes you with the actual operations of spiritual cooking—use of a mystical prayer wheel, reception and expression of sacred song, the triggering of sanctified shaking, activation of an inner rhythm machine, release of automatic ecstatic healing, and more. All webinars are recorded in case you miss the live session.

Live Podcasts:

Our podcasts are highly engaging, uncommonly creative, and full of surprise. There is no canned lecture or boring recycled material—everything is improvised in the moment and charged with the sacred vibration. With music, percussion, spirit-led story telling, ecstatically hot journeying, and mystical ways of transmitting sound that awaken a spiritual shake, we all cook together online and conclude with time for Q&A.

Private Sessions:

We are well known for our life-changing sessions that go far beyond the boundaries of familiar kinds of mentoring or coaching. Each session has what makes Sacred Ecstatics unique and special—an infusion of the mysterious sacred vibration required to anoint and empower creative change. You are also given one-of-a-kind mystical prescriptions for action that exercise and strengthen your mystical rope in your everyday. Private sessions are conducted virtually.
