What is The Modern Mystery School?

The Modern Mystery School is one of seven Mystery Schools across the planet. This is the only one open to the public. Its purpose is the establishment of World Peace.

It was Founded by Founder Gudni Gudnason over 20 years ago to bring ancient teachings & healings to humanity. These metaphysical teachings are from the Lineage of King Solomon & create an alchemical transformation for those who wish to learn. Study & healing is open to everyone.

To date Founder Gudni has dedicated over 40 years of his life towards the mission of world peace & in the past year he has been joined by Ipsissimus Hideto from Japan & Ipsissimus Dave from Canada in taking the school to its next level of service to humanity. They are joined by a council of 12 women who are also in dedicated service to the mission of World Peace.

The school is in 55 countries throughout the world (and growing) & in my own personal journey towards seeking the basis for disease and true healing I am in no doubt that there is an active spiritual component to ill health. The school provides a path towards personal transformation & the tools it offers bring true empowerment allowing students to create the life of their dreams.

I am privileged to be a Teacher, a Healer, a Life Activation Practitioner & Guide with the Modern Mystery School & I recommend you check out the website below to read more & to find a practitioner near you.

Love & blessings on your journey towards self empowerment & self realisation.

Born as Gudni Halldor Gudnason von Thoroddsen in northern 'Viking lands' of Iceland in a direct lineage of the War God Thor from the Eagle Vale Clan of Western Iceland where Yggdrasil is, and where Odin hung on the tree for nine days and nights. Initiated into the lineage of King Salomon in the early 1970s, given priesthood powers from High Priest Melchizedek, Initiated into the Mysteries in the Great Pyramid of Giza in an overnight ceremony. Guardian of the secret of the Holy Grail, Initiated Celtic Medicine Man, Viking Shaman, Druid Priest, Templar Knight, and Egyptian High Priest of Isis authorized to do the work by the HIERARCHY OF LIGHT in all manner with the highest powers given to a human.

In 1997 Founder Gudni opened the doors of the Mystery School to the public. He brought the ancient teachings from the Lineage of King Solomon to help people find inner peace so we might have World Peace. With these teachings he also brought healings from the Lineage helping humanity live lives of true Magick & embracing the Royal divinity within.


Ipsissimus Dave THOR Lanyon has been the driving force behind the explosive growth of The Mystery School since he joined the Lineage in 2004 and we have seen the school expand from 12 countries to 55 with his efforts. Dave has dedicated his life to serving the world by teaching, healing and helping people from all walks of life to Know Thyself. He is an expert at identifying what is blocking a person and at navigating them to high frequencies and deeper understandings.

Ipsissimus Dave is a Knights Templar Initiate & leads the world wide Order of the Warriors of Light Clan. He is a High Priest of Egyptian Magick, Master of Enochian Magick & specialises in Viking, Celtic & Egyptian Shamanism.

He is a world class Martial Arts Instructor & he has years of experience in business, economics & marketing which has helped the Modern Mystery School expand & deliver its mission of World Peace.


Ipsissimus Hideto REI Nakagome has been instrumental behind the growth of the Mystery School since he joined the lineage in the year 2000. He immediately saw the importance of the mission of World Peace and wanted to support this undertaking right away. He has worked passionately ever since.

He comes from a pure Japanese Bushi or Samurai family, and accesses that amazing power in his work within the Modern Mystery School. When teaching he does so with humor and fun so that the students relax and enjoy their study. While Ipsissimus Hideto lived as a businessman in the USA for many years, he learned about other cultures, their ways and traditions, fostering his love for all of humanity. He has travelled extensively around the world to learn about people and how to serve them in the best way. He is Initiated as Priest of Mikkyo Esoteric Buddhism, Viking Shaman, Celtic Shaman, Knight Templar, Egyptian Shaman & more.

As a master healer and head instructor of the Ensofic Ray Institute, he brings to the people an awareness of the beauty and good within themselves, in order to inspire the deepest healing and empowerment that they can achieve.


In 2017, when the Third Order was initiated, the Council of 12 was also activated. The Council of 12 is a group of 12 women, high-level initiates from all over the world who serve as leadership for the Modern Mystery School.

The Council of 12 work directly with the Third Order to execute the directives of the Hierarchy of Light for service to humanity on this earth. The 12 women provide council, confirmation and conference to the members of the Third Order about the various projects and missions of the MMS.

As of 2018, the first women to occupy the seats on the Council of 12 are:


Divina Franca Lanyon
Divina Kate Bartram-Brown
Divina Rita van den Berg
Divina Liza Rossi
Divina Ann Donnelly
Divina Theresa Bullard


Divina Eiko Gudnason
Divina Luisa Nakagome
Divina Tsukiko Kimura
Divina Maki Otani
Divina Suzuki Kitamura
Divina Yoda Asuza

The women who occupy the seats of the Council of 12 rotate through their roles as is needed so you will see some of these women shift and change year-to-year.

The installation in 2017 has allowed for the Goddess power and connection with the Shekinah to be anchored through these structures of the Third Order. This manifests as the implementation of the various levels of operation required for the running of the Modern Mystery School.

Core Values and Beliefs


We believe that all humans have come from a Divine Origin and are therefore made from a Divine substance, therefore in a sense are Gods and Goddesses!

We believe that all humans are Eternal, that we have never been born and therefore we can never die. Yes, we have a physical body, but so does the butterfly have a shell, a larva that then transforms into their true nature. We believe that we are in that process, becoming our true self!

We believe that all humans have all the knowledge we need, and that whatever questions we have, the answers reside within ourselves. The Mystery School was established only to assist humans to find those answers, not to give them!

We believe that humans are constructed by three components, physical body, soul and spirit and that all three of these need to be taken care of through wisdom, nurturing, and healing. The Mystery School Lineage provides this with ancient metaphysical tools used and perfected over thousands of years.

The Lineage has focused on working with and creating tools to handle the complicated machine or the computer of the human vehicle, what we call the MIND. Our tools are aimed to help each individual take back control of this vehicle for themselves so they can create a better life. We believe that all of our physical manifestations start within the mind thus it is so important to take good care of it!
