The Untangled Mystic
After years of saying I would author a book I finally did. The Untangled Mystic: Becoming The Creator of Your Life was released on Amazon.ca, on November 22, 2023. The book is based on a four-month practical mysticism course I’ve taught over the years, and I’ve included some fun (in my mind) ideas to play with.
I first began studying a variety of subjects that fall under the category of mystical teachings in 1984 and after getting turned upside down and inside out I recognized the truth, elegance, simplicity and practicality of the teachings.
Along with many others who’ve come before me, I can easily imagine a more creative, coherent world in which these types of ideas are applied to politics, commerce, stewardship of the earth and all types of relationships. However, I have occasionally been told I am an idealist.
Here are two things I learned from the experience of writing a book. First, is that I have not yet decided if I like wearing a writer’s hat. I noticed I felt a bit cranky at times while drafting the book. Although I’ve written many articles over the years as well as developed courses, writing a book was different and felt somewhat restrictive. Why, because there wasn’t a student or client asking me to explain an idea in a different way.
Sometimes when teaching, I don’t fully realize what I know until I am able to break an idea down into a form that another person can connect with. My mind and their minds get to merge, expand and go further than I, could have anticipated. There is a great joy that comes from sharing positive information.
Second on the list of challenges while drafting a book, is a pesky thing called punctuation. In the editing process when I was told that I couldn’t put a comma in a place I wanted to, I rebelled. Apparently, when writing a book, you can’t use comma’s every time you want the reader to pause, stop and think about a point in order to notice how their bodies take the idea in. As you can imagine it was an exercise in patience for the people helping me edit.
In January 2024, I’m intending to do a monthly newsletter with a focus on practical mysticism. There will be ideas and suggestions on how to apply holistic thinking at home, work and in relationships.
Until then, I am sending you wishes for a joy-filled, nourishing and loving holiday season. Catherine
