"Paul invites us back to what most of us knew in life, but then over time forgot the joy and wonder that comes from accepting life’s impenetrable mystery.”
—Thom Allena, Professor of Peace Studies, University of New Mexico and co-author of Restorative Justice on the College Campus
Paul Dunion is a healer, teacher, author, and eclectic mystic committed to remaining mindful of life as a mysterious and unpredictable journey. He offers consultations, transformational coaching, and seminars internationally aimed at deepening our capacity to receive the mystery of life and to travel our unique path.
Making Peace with Mystery
Making Peace with Mystery reflects the most pervasive initiatory process in all indigenous cultures. It is regularly referred to as the Initiation into the Mysterium Tremendum (Great Mystery). Once we can accept that we are on a deeply mysterious and insecure journey we can begin to step into a dynamic and creative dance between our personal wills and the power of Fate. Such a dance is aimed at yielding a destiny illuminated by both depth and meaning.
“Life is an extremely deep mystery.
Let yourself be touched by her and she may grant you a glimpse.”
Wisdom – Apprenticing to the Unknown & Befriending Fate
It may be time to let go of the naivete that our technological devices will magically reveal the nature of absolute truth, or that some alluring formula will serve our need for immediate gratification and penetrate life’s mysteries. We seem to have forgotten that it is by the light of wisdom that we begin to understand who we are and make some sense of the journey we call life. Wisdom – Apprenticing to the Unknown and Befriending Fate tells a story of what it means to apprentice to the unknown. It offers a strong plea - stop trying to get life right and allow life to get you right. Such an allowance happens over time as the ego comes to know defeat and the illusion of its sovereignty. The wisdom path must be walked with curiosity and honesty, letting ourselves admit that we are employing some form of bypass that can allegedly circumvent life’s unpredictability and insecurity. Apprentices become increasingly informed by letting go of what is out of their control and learning to find the courage to address what is in their control. The reader learns what it means to remain a student of life, less enamored with being impressive, and as the need to perform and achieve atrophy, gains a devout receptivity to all that fate desires to teach. Wisdom is a verb. It is the apprenticing in a constant state of inquiry.
