The Mystery School ~ How is it different than a festival?

Three Gates Gathering How it Works

An individual chooses a topic they wish to explore through the three gates of knowledge, wisdom, and understanding. They then have three classes, one for each gate to give them a deep understanding of their chosen topic.  Each topic is taught by the same pair of individuals, therefore preserving continuity for that particular topic. At the end of the Mystery School you will receive a Certificate of Graduation for the track you completed.


Note: Tracks change every three years so you can come back next year and the year after to complete all three!

 The Format

There are 3 workshops in each topic. The classes run 1 hr which includes a minimum of 15 minutes of discussion. Therefore an individual will be finished all classes by 3 PM on Saturday.

The classes run as follows:

First Gate: (First class in each Track): Friday 4:00 PM

Second Gate: ( Second Class in each Track): 11:30AM – 12:30 PM

Afternoon Lunch Break: 12:30PM – 1:30 PM

Third Gate: ( Third class in each Track): 1:45PM – 2:45 PM

Therefore, three classes will be going on at each time slot resulting in maximum efficiency and ease of administration and participation.


There are also three rituals during the Mystery School.  The ritual is designed to run approximately 1 hr. At the end of the Opening ritual and musical performance we will have drumming and dancing around the main fire pit and after the musical performances after Main Ritual we will have drumming and dancing around the Fire in the Faery Faire. Please also visit our vendors in the Faery Faire!  The Closing Ritual ( Sunday 11:00 AM) will award the “Certificate of Graduation”to EACH participant who has completed their track.
