About Great Mystery
Founded by the late Cody Johnson and Robin Johnson, Great Mystery celebrated its 20th Anniversary in 2012.
From its first weekend workshop on Maui with Carlos Castaneda and his party to the present, Great Mystery, under the banners of The Prophets Conference, Axiom, and the Great Rethinking, has presented exceptional thought leaders exploring shamanism, new science, multiple dimensions of reality, health and healing, indigenous teachings, and consciousness, fostering inspired activism.
Through experiential workshops and retreats, engaging conferences, tours to sacred sites, interactive online video programs, and local community gatherings, Great Mystery brings us together to discuss and celebrate imagination, new perspectives and transformational ideas and to then integrate and apply these insights in new, purposeful ways.
Author and friend Tom Robbins, shortly after the release of his book, Half Asleep in Frog Pajamas, said we are “the gypsy campus of Timbuktu U.”
