Club of Mystical Travel
The international Club of Mystical Travel deals with
the research of spiritual heritage of indigenous
cultures of the world, the organization and
conducting of meetings, seminars and conferences,
cooperates with spiritual teachers from different
countries, invites researchers from Europe, Asia and
America, organizes expeditions and esoteric tours to
Russia, Southern and Northern America, Africa, India,
Tibet, Nepal and China.
We travel to the beautiful and marvelous places of
our planet – to the places where the myths and
legends are still alive, where everything is
saturated with mystery, where the environment is in
its virgin beauty. We work out special routes
together with our friends from different countries
of the world. And we invite to our expeditions
everyone who is interested in such special trips,
during which you are not only moving to external
space, but you get a deep internal transformation.
Such trips give more than just bright memoirs; they
create the real changes in comprehension of yourself
and in perception of life in general. Our journeys
have one significant difference from the usual “tours”.
In comparison to the travel agencies that also
undertake the organization of trips to the
mysterious places of the planet our aim is not only
meeting with places of nature of tremendous beauty
or fascinating with its mysterious force monuments
of ancient culture, but also meeting with real
people of Knowledge: yogis, shamans, healers, the
masters representing alive spiritual traditions of
We are fond of helping to make the most bold and
unbelievable dreams of people come true. By the
example of our own life we know that the things
which are considered to be hard accessible or even
impossible, are possible!
The Club is engaged in organizing and carrying out
of seminars and conferences in different directions
of ethnopsychology and in traditional directions of
the spiritual knowledge, such as shamanism, archaic
magic, sorcery, Zen, Sufism, Daoism, tantra, yoga.
But the main mission of our Club is conducting of
the research expeditions and travel worldwide.
We are opened for interaction with the free creative
people who are in search and research of Sacred and
Mystical. People engaged in scientific researches,
but thus not limited by dogmatic frameworks of
scientific conservatism and room snobbery, are also
interesting for us. We welcome those people who have
an object for self-knowledge and self-realization
who travel to the Unknown and open new measurements
of life. We are interested in any contacts with the
traditional spiritual doctrines of the East, and the
West, and also of the North and the South. We are
interested in contacts with the representatives of
the ancient cultures who have kept the spiritual
traditions of their peoples. We are opened for
creative interaction with the researchers who could
find out the bearers of such traditions in different
small corners of the Earth.
The subject of the special interest of the Club of
Mystic Travel is the archaic spirituality and the
primitive culture. Nowadays the Archaic and
primordial religiousness sometimes is misinterpreted
as something "out-of-date", or "obsolete". However
the origin of the words "Archaic" and "primitive"
specifies "seniority", "domination", “leading
position “, and "superiority”. And it is no accident.
The Archaic has given a life to all without an
exception the traditional world and local religions.
No late « a philosophical reflection » could be
without myths, legends and archetypes of the
antiquity. The idea of the existence in time of a
certain axis, which was moved out once by German
philosopher Charles Jaspers, is the convenient
metaphor justifying the accelerated catastrophic
withdrawal from the integrity of life.
The Buddhism, the Hinduism, the Daoism, the Early
Christianity and many other religions - all these
are branches of the mighty tree of the Archaic (not
without reason "antiquity"(drevnost’) and "tree"(drevo)
in Russian are single-root words, and a synonym of a
word "traditional" – radical (korennoj)l, in other
words concerning the roots(korni), implanted(ukorenennyj))..
Not understanding the vital importance of the "primitive
culture », and losing the connection with the roots
and the traditions, many contemporaries hang up a
label "paganism" on the ancient Weltanschauungs.
Alas, but it is in the most direct sense – the
display of boorish behavior, that is to say the
disrespectful attitude to our parents, who gave us
our life and feed us.
Shamanism was the expression of the archaic
spirituality from the immemorial time. Widespread
practically everywhere, shamanism played the leading
part in formation of the ancient culture. But
shamanism is not only the ecstatic intercourse with
spirits of the Upper and Lower worlds. Shamanism is,
first of all, LOVE to the NATURE and its SACRED
GIFTS. Only love and the respectful attitude to the
Nature (to mountains, forests, seas, lakes, rivers,
springs and its inhabitants) can open us a mystical
track to the secrets and magic of the complete life.
Understanding and keeping that precious gift which
was given us by the Nature, we study how to live in
the complete world. Shamanism is a way to get the
knowledge of the nature and to find the strength.
The word "shaman" taken from the tunguso-manchurian
languages (Russia), is connected with the verb sa -
"to know". Traveling to the Places of Strength and
meeting with people of Knowledge, adjoining,
absorbing the ancient Wisdom, we receive a chance to
get out of that desperate position, which the modern
person of city turned out to be in.
Infinite dry abstractions, lifeless heap of circuits
and models of being, book shelves piled high with
mental dust is the destiny of the city inhabitants,
of the pale blue-green shadows who have put in pawn
their souls in exchange for the doubtful blessings
of a civilization. Modern thinking is on the one
hand gripped in a vice of fanatical dogmatism and
scholasticism, and on the other in the permissive
relativity, postmodernism and sophistry. If we add
to this such "gains" of the society of consumers as
fast-food, preservatives and other «food additives»,
which cause oncological diseases and adiposity, AIDS,
alcoholism and narcotics, means of mass degradation
(mass-media) and the destruction of the planet
ecosystem we receive the diagnosis of the present
global civilization which have won "primitive
barbarity", " dark centuries " and "paganism".
However it is erroneous to assert, that comfort
kills the soul. The Price we must pay for this
comfort is fatal. And this price is a life in
harmony with the whole universe, with the Spirit of
Space. Comfort in exchange for a high-grade life in
unity with the Nature, self-isolation and
self-ejection from uniform family of all the real on
the Earth and behind its limits. What would become
to us, when we in perfection develop technologies of
the information transfer (the Internet, mobile
communication, etc.), but the most valuable
information (instead of the dust-spam information)
won’t anymore exist? The goods are in exchange for
Gift. A very expensive price!
In the modern world democracy is considered to be
the most advanced and perspective idea. But the true
democracy should protect not only the momentary
interests of the human tribe. Unless we understand,
that many other kinds of living essences also live
on this planet, our democracy will hardly differ
from the ancient Greek democracy with bloated
minority living due to a slave labor of the majority.
Conceiving «fair wars», people do not count the
losses among peace flora and fauna. And when one
part of naked primates of a Homo sapiens kind by
virtue of its nonsense turns to addicts, the other
part of primates in the form of guards of the order
inconsiderately starts to destroy innocent plants -
poppies, hemp and coca. Unless we learn to take into
account the interests of ALL inhabitants of our
planet, we cannot consider our future and especially
the future of our descendants to be happy. The
nature is not our enemy whom we should conquer and
turn into slavery. The nature is our best ally! Alas,
unless people don’t continue to pine in cocoons of
mega cities, it is impossible to understand and feel
the beauty of the nature and places of its Strength.
And the unique way out of the situation is to
overcome inertia and prejudices, to collect a
knapsack and to go to an expedition.
The future of the mass tourism is an ecological
tourism. However our expeditions are not a component
of the "industry of tourism". At the same time,
they’re not ethnographic expeditions in habitual
sense of the word as the ethnographic research
approach assumes the discharged supervision of the
passionless researcher not involved in the process.
Our Club is more likely the union of free Pilgrims
of the Sky and the Earth, Holy Spirit of the Nature,
which are not alien to the ideas of absolutology*.
*Absolutology is the opening up of the Great Way to
Self-realization, and realization of Divine in us.
The main thing is that this opening up combines
harmony of the theory and practice, and also the
unbiased free from prejudices approach.
Absolutology is a science of the mystical experience,
of the Absolute and its display in being. The term "Absolutology"
is wider, than "theology" (divinity) as in last, as
a rule, it is aprioristic (initially and
unconsciously) The absolute is perceived identical
to the personal creator of space. However there are
religious-philosophical systems which don’t consider
the Absolute as the person or as « the personal God
» (the brightest example - the Buddhism and the
Daoism). Therefore in order to analyze such views in
a context of "theology" - means beforehand to doom
them to the status of "derelicts" in
religious-philosophical research of mystical
experience and the absolute basis of life.
What does our Club represent?
Our club unites free travelers. Therefore the Club
is not a commercial organization and does not pursue
the purpose of a personal profit of expedition
organizers. However we adhere to a principle "each
work is worthy of livelihood ". Therefore we should
award our “stalkers”, taking the responsibility for
the certain route (and, certainly, well knowing it).
And, accordingly, this means some collective charges.
You also can offer your own route and we will
necessarily consider your offer. Facebook:
