About the Quest

Into the Mythica

The Journey to Subtle Earth

There is a World beneath the World. A place of magic, mystery and expansion. The storehouse for all our stories, myths and legends.

When I was a child I loved books about magic.  About adventurers making their way to new worlds, new places hidden from the ordinary world.  Of explorers finding portals into places containing wonders.

In particular, I was deeply inspired by Jules Verne’s classic “Journey to the Center of the Earth”, a book which followed a group of adventurers following clues left by an intrepid explorer into a hidden and mystical world.

Many years later, I would find myself documenting my own journey to the subtle lands of the earth, acting as an explorer of the  mystical world of the Mythica, the place where synchronicity and story met.

My intent was clear, I wanted to make my way to a more heavenly reality.  To conditions of inspiration and reception, far from the difficulties I was experiencing along the way.

As I did, I recognized I was mapping my way across the subtle layer of the Earth, gradually discovering the secret of our synchronicities and how all the worlds were arranged in time and space.

Marking the Path

The Mythica started for me in 2002, when I started using photos as a means of divination, using them to mark the moments on my Path when I experienced the realm I came to call the Mythica.  I had the idea that just like markers on a trail, the photos of my journey could serve as guideposts for others, other adventurous souls who wished to discover the world beneath the world.

As I documented the journey, I became more and more aware that there was another landscape beneath the surface.  A geography of subtle energies and subconscious impressions, a psychoemotional territory of archetypes and avatars that mirrored my own process of becoming.

In service to this idea, I tracked my path for years, using my photography to mark the trail of my movement deeper into that mystical dimension.  To show the nature of the landscape of the Mythica, the worlds beneath the world.

As part of the magic, I never set up the photos, only Witnessing who arrived on the path.  Noticing and documenting the synchronicities in space and time where things happened and what I was able to divine along the way.

Meeting the Avatars of the Awakening

As I continued to track my journey, I discovered something AMAZING.  I started to see the SAME people arrive again and again.  Even deeper, I realized that each of them held a Gift.  A quality of change that was part of much larger intention shared by all.  That there was something Bigger than Us that was drawing us together.

Over time, I came to see that this Bigger thing, the Great Story to which we were all a part, was happening all across the world, yet most people didn’t see it.  However, some did.  They saw there was a collective movement  happening beneath the surface, arriving in synchronicity at very specific points on the planet, and that they were part of something bigger than themselves.  A grand effort to manifest a brighter world.

Here I saw documentation of my Quest was in service to something larger.  I saw that I was laying down the foundation for a network of stories, starting with my own and expanding outwards to reveal that larger pattern … a Collective unfoldment whose threads wove between us all.

Thus Into the Mythica was born.  A platform of ‘media for the modern mystic’, using stories to show the subtle ways we were connected.  Opening a window into that subtle earth and the guardians of her Garden

Revealing the Land beneath the Land

As I continued on the journey my understanding of this pattern grew.  I came to see that there was a physical substance in the subtle planes of awareness.  That the constant vibrations i’d felt around the people I had encountered were part of a landscape, a subtle landscape which existed beneath the surface of the world, made of the subtle colors and textures of the characters I had met and their stories.

I called this landscape “The Mythica”, for it was the place where our mythologies lived.  Where the impressions and manifest realities of our Collective subconscious were seen as a subtle geography, arriving in synchronicity with very specific people and places on the planet.  That in some way, our many stories and synchronicities were part of the planet herself, connected in this web beneath the world.

Gradually, I came to see that all beings were moving through this subtle landscape, through the resolving energies and impressions in their own subconscious and it’s manifestations.  I saw that this landscape was the foundation for all stories, for all the experiences we had along our many Quests, and realized that if I could share this with the people, to share the maps of the Mythica, that they would be able to find their own way Home.  To understand the physics of their quest, and discover the world beneath the world.

Yet there was more.  Over time, I came to see another layer.  A place where nerves and tendrils of living light sang beneath the surface and subtle planes of the world.  Where the many impressions of our mythologies and stories dissolved into even more primal geometries, an ether woven into the very roots of the world.  It was a place of primal elements, where the synchronicities and stories of the people were seen as expressions of a nervous system of planetary proportions.

Here, pulses of information beat in rhythms across the threads, radiant with purpose, where I could feel that much larger Collective story singing, driven by a greater and central intelligence.  A Divine mind, incarnate through a pantheon of characters, orchestrating some beautiful through a chorus of voices.

Documenting the Path

Yet how to show this mystical place? How to reveal the subtle lands of the earth and her characters? As part of my devotion, I realized the best way was through Stories.   To show the subtle world,  I documented the moments on my timeline for twenty years, building that into the site that you’re reading today, and will be gradually releasing the episodes of that story to reveal the teachings. 

What You're Going to Learn

Throughout this site I will be teaching you what it has meant for me to travel into the subtle landscape of the world, revealing how we all move through it all the time and how it relates to our manifest worlds.

 I will be sharing stories from my Quest, bringing in interviews with Characters I have along the way and delivering the teachings in the modern-day hieroglyph of the comic book.  I will be showing the nature of the Yoga of Story and the Physics of the Quest, and opening a window into the wonders of the Tree of Life.

Surface Subtle

Even deeper, I will show you the nature of how to make your own journey into the Mythica, revealing the nature of the rainbow bridge between realities  strung on the roots and branches on the world.

It is my heartfelt intention that you are empowered by this portal into the mystical world, that you come to explore your own Path and the landscape of your legend, and discover the treasure along your rainbow road.
