Demystifying Mysticism:

The word “mystic” is from the Greek “mystkos,” which means the pursuit of direct, personal communion with God. It can be found in something as seemingly trivial as breathing into a star-filled sky, or as serious as losing someone you love. It can come from years of inner work — or be a gift of pure grace.

Spend an hour with Rev. Garrett A. Foster as we explore and experience mysticism in a way that makes it accessible to everyone.

Rev. Garrett Foster

Rev. Garrett A. Foster is a three-time cancer survivor. Each diagnosis became a tremendous gift and led him to committing to a life of love, gratitude, and service. Ordained by One Spirit, Garrett is an interfaith minister, inter-spiritual counselor, Unity-trained prayer chaplain, Life-Cycle Celebrant™, and community builder. He is the founder of the online Community In Spirit; and will be launching his Spiritual Writers Academy™ in the fall of 2020. A graduate of Vassar College where he majored in English, Garrett spent three decades as a senior writer, editor, and manager at Soap Opera Magazine, and The Palm Beach Post and Sun Sentinel newspapers. Early in his career, he won a Daytime Emmy Award for his writing contributions on the CBS drama Guiding Light. He is the author of the self-published novel, The Accident of Being Human. His follow-up novel, The Weight of Faith, will be available soon. Garrett is most called to work with writers and creative types; people who have been bullied, oppressed, and marginalized; anyone facing cancer or other life-threatening diagnosis; and those who are drawn to the path of the mystic. Garrett and his partner of 30 years, Brian, divide their time between South Florida and Merida, Mexico, in the Yucatan. Together they have co-created and owned two successful small businesses and raised a menagerie of furry rescue animals.
