I hope you and your loved ones are well and thriving. I hope this year has done you well and offered you loads of opportunities for growth.
2021 is coming to an end, and we look back on an eventful year here at The Magic Garden.
Below, I want to share some of the magical developments we've experienced this year, and show you some of the things you can look forward to in the coming year.
Jacob’s new shamanic wand, the 22-stringed, unique butterfly guitar – Black Beauty – is expected to be born at Spring Equinox 2022, and we are very excited what new shamanic soundscapes she will open up to.
These are some of the latest albums.
__________________________________________________________________________________he Magic Garden Tribe (platform)
In February, we launched our new membership platform, The Magic Garden Tribe. A platfor
m created for spiritual seekers and psychonauts.
Here members have access to an expansive pool of music, guidance and inspiration that can be useful and rewarding on their Adventure of Self-Discovery.
New content is launched regularly, so there is always something new to be enriched and guided by.
One of the main purposes of the membership is to invite to global meditations and create community.
Right now, you can join our monthly full moon concerts as they are livestreamed free and openly through various platforms which besides the membership platform include Facebook and Youtube.
Magic Festival 2021
In September, we held our annual Magic Festival.
The festival ran over two days this year. The first day was dedicated to a tribute to our cherished elder Stanislav Grof on the occasion of his 90th birthday.
The tribute featured talks by top-notch speakers as Jorge Ferrer, Christopher Bache, and Susan Hess Logeais.
In the evening we held our ritual drumming ceremony as well as a concert with Electric Shaman and Axis Mundi.
It was a blast of a tribute, and we were overjoyed to have paid this festive and loving tribute to Stan Grof.
Sunday featured a small conference with the theme of the modern Eleusis, which is exactly what The Magic Garden is, and was a vision that Albert Hofmann had. This day we had equally prominent speakers on the program in the form of Rick Doblin, Susan Hess Logeais, Michael Mithoefer, and Derek Seagrief.
We have published two of the dialogues from the festival publicly on our Youtube channel. You can watch the talks below. We will publish more content from the festival during 2022.
The Tribe is Growing
We experience a growing interest in embarking on the inner journey and are delighted to see regular and new travelers entering through the green gate and filling our “spacecraft".
It makes us happy beyond words and feels deeply meaningful, because that is exactly the point of The Magic Garden - namely to be a modern living Eleusis where people can explore themselves deeply, find back home in themselves and be able to live precisely the life they want and dream of – and have direct experiences of the Source.
New education programme. Integral Transpersonal Psychotherapist
Another huge development this year is the coming launch of our psychotherapist education programme called Integral Transpersonal Psychotherapist in January 2022.
After completing their studies, the students of this programme will be masterful psychedelic and transpersonal psychotherapists.
The main foundation of the education is Transpersonal Psychology, and it includes a wide range of associated subject areas as psychonautics, mythology, archetypal astrology, and shamanism etc.
There is room for 14 students and the education programme lasts 4 years.
The purpose of the training is to meet the need for qualified psychedelic psychotherapists, which is at present and which will grow in the coming years due to the psychedelic renaissance.
As mentioned, we are already seeing an increased demand for taking the inner journey here at The Magic Garden, and we would like to help meet this demand by educating a group of dedicated souls so that they are equipped with a solid knowledge, skills and experience within the field.
At the same time, I’m at a place in my life, where I feel a deep calling from within to pass on my knowledge and pool of experience from almost four decades of self-exploration to future generations.
The education programme will be taught in Danish.
We’re still taking in applications, as we still have a few spots open.
If this is of interest to you, we urge you to apply as soon as possible, as study starts on 6 January 2022.
Learn more about the programme here.
The education programme page is in Danish only.
Another crazy thing that happened this year is that my band Electric Shaman signed a record deal with a prominent label. We’re now collaborating with a renowned producer who has worked with several international stars to produce our first album.
The first singles will be released in the beginning of 2022, and we can’t wait for you to hear them.
The Magic Garden Team
Ecaterina and I are so blessed to have three volunteering employees who dedicatedly and persistently make a huge contribution to solving all the absolutely huge number of large and small tasks associated with operating such a cosmic space station and modern Eleusis.
By joint efforts in the team, a sea of optimizations has been made on many levels throughout the year, both in the house, garden and in relation to our external communication.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 🦋❤️
We wish you and your dear ones a wonderful, rewarding, and blissful Christmas and a bright, happy, and ecstatic New Year.
We look forward to seeing you and embarking on new adventures with you in 2022.
Light, love, magic & harmony,
Jacob, Ecaterina & The Magic Garden Team
