A Door to Ways and Means on the Spiritual Path
The Search for Spiritual Truth can be an elusive and exhausting battle. The need for self-definition and self-knowledge is rare and seldom valued in today's society. In other words, we need all the help we can get. Through this site I hope to offer a few simple and effective tools for turning one's life into a living prayer : ways and means on the practical road to the Divine.
The Missal's Mission: The Mystic Missal was formed to distribute and preserve practical esoteric knowledge to help lead the serious seeker to a change of being.

The Mindful Trackers:A video series on tracking the self, featuring Paul Rezendes and George Leoniak
Who are we, really? "Track the most cunning animal of all... the self, and come face to face with who it really is."
Photographer and writer Paul Rezendes has an unusual take on realization, formed in part from his years of experience in the outdoors as a wildlife tracker and teacher. Join him and fellow tracker George Leoniak as they take us on the journey of self-inquiry, into the wilds of our inner world to find the 'self', the illusion otherwise known as 'me'.

No matter how subtle or astute our meditation may be, we will never realize nirvana by using yet another facet of samsara. A different level of seeing is needed, a pure awareness that is not itself a product of the world or mind, but primary to the reaction pattern we call ourselves.

to stir the longing within.
This site is dedicated to my father, Edgar, and to my teacher, Richard Rose. I did not have the ability to thank them in person for their gifts: creativity from my father, and from Richard Rose, the freedom to manifest it. This site would not exist without them. Thank you both.
