The learning is further enriched as we grow from each other’s practices and have an opportunity to be part of a spiritual family. Additionally, there is a Peer Practicum component in each Module that’s designed to reinforce your learning in a way that will stick, and hold you in compassionate accountability. (Note Peer Practicum exists only when the sessions are offered live and are not available via self-study).

testimonials

For an in-depth discussion about how the Mystery Mentorship has facilitated deep healing, connection with the Unseen, and transformation, have a listen to a podcast recording between two apprentices, Ellen Wong (co-founder of Daughters brand) and Shengyin Gui (founder of Haus of Five), on Woo Knew? Podcast (an engaging podcast that highlights many BIPOCs in the wellness space in a mature and cross-disciplinary way). Listen HERE.
"I don’t think I have words to express how much joining the MM [Mystery Mentorship] has impacted my life. I’ve spent the last several years dabbling in a lot of spiritual work, but never really finding anything that fit. This is really the work that is putting me back in touch with myself, empowering me to get to the root for myself, instead of tying me to a certain program or healer. Things in my life were shaken up during fire & water, and the beginning of the year was fairly difficult for me. But I found that I had tools and practices to anchor me during these storms, that helped me through another transformation. I’m finding I can much better help myself, answer my own questions, instead of looking outward for advice or answers constantly."

Valerie L.

"I'd like you to know I enjoyed the Fire module thoroughly, and I learned way more than I ever expected. With the practices we explored, and the confidence that you transmit through your teachings, I've managed to set off some significant changes in my life and I'm committed to riding the wave through..."

José Rosales-Lopez

"Four years ago I walked away from a serious relationship and "dream" job because I felt they were both distracting me from my life's purpose. In the years that followed, and in the light of a Saturn return, I tried tirelessly to make sense of my day dreams that would show me the life I believe I came here to live. When I would share these thoughts with others they whole-heartedly believed in me and could really see me doing it, but for some reason I never could. I often felt like I couldn't see anything, or that maybe I was crazy . . . just like my dad. It is weird having the feeling that you were born to be a radical/revolutionary – because as electrifying as it is, it is also stiflingly heavy. And before your mentorship I was struggling to contain both of those emotions. In connecting with the Mother Peace deck, hearing your wisdom and education on decolonization, and learning the multiple spiritual practices you have shown us – I have found stability. For four years I have been waiting for a parachute and this mentorship has shown me that it is never coming. I cannot go back to who I was and the world I have been trying my whole life to belong in, doesn't need me to belong. Instead, the world needs me to help re-shape it so that we can all belong and co-create a better one. I still can't see it all but what I do know is that I am no longer hiding from my purpose but navigating within it. As my final fun fact, I wrote 2 goals at the start of 2020 with absolutely no idea where to start (see attached). They were: 1) I will have seen and access to my own past lives and 2) I will live in my purpose as a plant medicine woman through food - and thanks to your mentorship I have found both :)"

"The Mystery Mentorship was as resourceful, as it was joyful, as it was powerfully transformative for me and even months later I am relishing in its magic. It is such a gift to learn from Mimi who is integrous, embodying what she teaches wholly and responsibly, time after time. Her sharing of knowledge and care for her community inspires me; the quality and quantity of what is experienced in this container is truly unparalleled. Deepening my understanding of Chinese esoterics was a timely being-home with(in) myself— and my ancestors— so nourishing especially in a world grappling with global trauma. It was a beautiful and visceral experiencing in heart, mind, flesh, bones, cells. As a daughter to Taiwanese immigrant parents, my childhood and adolescent relationships with them struggled because communication styles and language barriers frequently barred me from really understanding the culture they were living and teaching me; MM connected and healed so much for me on personal, cultural and spiritual levels as I learned and remembered in retro and introspection. Thank you so much for a truly mystical offering. Thank you for being you!"

"I wanted to share some of my feelings and experience being in the Mystery Mentorship since the beginning, almost a year ago. I cannot believe that it has been that amount of time! I feel like I am not the same person I was when I entered this mentorship. So many versions of me have died and been reborn, and I have to say that I could not be more grateful. When I saw your offering for the Mystery Mentorship, it resonated with a deep desire inside of me that always wanted to learn about The Unseen, yet I never knew how, and it had always felt "taboo" due to my conditioned beliefs. This mentorship has been the safe haven to find ALL of the answers to my questions and MORE! I have never felt so at home in my body, in nature and within a community, as I have in the Mystery Mentorship. I have a LONG list of stories I could share about all the ways this Mentorship has shaped me, challenged me, moved me and supported my growth. The skills I have learned, feel like they always belonged to me, and now they are in my "tool-kit" for life. I especially appreciate the deepening of my intuitive senses, that I had previously ignored, due to conditioning that they were not important. I found EARTH module to be instrumental in re-connecting me to the land and all her inhabitants. This led to a home-coming in my own body, which has continued to bless me daily. In AIR, I learned that Divination was possible, along with so many beautiful gifts that have empowered me as a spiritual being. It was here that I learned the importance of energetic boundaries, and how that allows for safety and sovereignty. FIRE module was a time of pure, dynamic transformation on all levels of my being. I still am processing the changes that were made during this time. WATER has opened up psychic connections and taught me how to receive in the most beautiful ways. These are only a handful of ways that this program has changed my entire life. As I mentioned, the list is extensive, and I mean it with my whole heart, I am forever transformed. I was able to set a boundary with alcohol.. through a shamanic journey to the Lower world, which allowed me to abstain from the substance (something I had been struggling to do for over a decade). Once I became alcohol-free, I was granted awareness of the childhood trauma I was "numbing" with alcohol. The healing of my inner child is almost entirely attributed to this practice. I have faced my shadow, my internalized colonialism and all the ways that affected my perspective and my vibration. I have learned how to soften my heart, how to respect my self and others and how to make mistakes, and own up to them without fear. I have learned about my intuition, how she speaks to me, so subtly. I have learned that we all have differences in gifts and that makes for a very interesting and creative environment. Finally, I have found my true passion, which was really always my passion, I just didn't believe in myself enough to pursue it. I love working with animals, and finding them homes and helping them in any way I can. Since being in this mentorship, I have started making the necessary steps in starting a non-for-profit animal rescue. This is a long road to follow, and there are many visions supporting my dream, and I am so driven to fulfill this desire. I talk to animals and plants more than I talk to actual humans these days, and I kinda like it hahahah. I have so much gratitude in my heart to have the opportunity to learn from you, as your wealth of knowledge and the depth of your heart is so vast. It is hard not to be completely enthralled with everything you teach. I truly admire and honour you with all of my heart. Thank you so much, for offering this treasure, for showing me the way to answer a deep calling from within. Saying "Yes" to this program was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I hope to always walk by you in the Spirit realm and beyond, and learn from your magical ways!"

“ARE YOU SURE YOU WANT TO APPRENTICE WITH ME?”

— A NOTE FROM MIMI

Thank you for your interest in Ceremonie’s Mystery Mentorship program. Please be aware that if you embark upon this course of study, apprentices are not students that I will manage. When you apply to be my apprentice, what I will be assessing is your readiness to be radically honest, release your excuses, and drop the parts of you that prevent you from living in your fullest seen and unseen powers. You will be pushed, you will be stretched, you might cry, you may think you don’t have it in you — but the way into effective shamanic and occult work is through abandonment, authenticity, and moving through one’s darkness. 

Mystery Mentorship is a portal through which you can maximize your personal potential, release your ego, fall deeply in love with yourself, re-learn healthy intimacy, grow in confidence, commit to self-growth, confront your demons, and live in connection with the supernatural. This mentorship will not ask you to become the perfect person. This mentorship asks you to be you — whole and glorious, and perhaps a version of you that you don’t yet know, but is you nonetheless. 

Enter through this portal with respect, and you will be met with honour.

Enter through this portal with willingness and openness, and you will be met with open arms.

Enter through this portal with a commitment to yourself, and you will experience my commitment to you.

Tenderly and fiercely,

Mimi

About Mimi

About Mimi

Welcome!

My name is Mimi Young, and I am a Han Taiwanese Canadian living, working, and playing on the unceded and traditional territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations – what is otherwise known as Vancouver, Canada.

I am also a spirit communicator, wu shamanic intuitive and occultist, whose work is to impart ancient and practical wisdom to those who are eager to (re)connect to the Unseen within their inner and outerworlds so you can actively receive the support of your spirit allies, break negative patterns, and celebrate your path with confidence. We all have intuitive gifts and magickal abilities; some of us simply need some support and encouragement as we find our way back to our inner wisdom and agency. Through mystical practices rooted in integrity, equity, depth, and efficacy, experience the safety to give yourself the permission to be original and all who you are.

Whether you seek to access the Unseen through a plant potion from my Skin + Aura collection, to study a single esoteric topic via my Spirit Study Courses, or to enroll in a more in-depth magickal study through my Mystery Mentorship program, I offer you grounded, practice-based expertise rooted in my experience and ancestral heritage. (In ancient Chinese traditions, this multi-disciplinary metaphysical practice is called 巫 – Wu or Wuism). Quite simply, I will help you learn how to see again; to see the Unseen. 

Though I’ve been aware of my psychic gifts my whole life, I began a conscious integration of myself through a chance shamanic encounter during five months of bedrest while pregnant with my second child. As I have blended these gifts with my diverse career background that includes design, education, and clean tech, I have developed a strong conviction to avoid the posturing and the clichés of spirituality. It is deeply important for me to be real and to be me. Likewise, in my approach to magick and psychic mediumship, I do not water anything down.

I have held space and led seekers and practitioners from all over the world in my Mystery Mentorship program and retreats, as well as collaboratively with brands including goop, Almost 30, Spirit House Collective, and Tokyo Smoke. In the press and on podcasts, my work has been celebrated by Vogue, goop, Harper’s Bazaar, Refinery29, Hey Girl, So You Think You’re Intuition, Healers, Living Open AND MORE.

Folks who have worked with me describe me as welcoming, engaging, deepening, and transformative.

As I say in my unconventional WORKING WITH MIMI TERMS,

Walk with me with respect, and you will be met with honour.

Walk with me with willingness and openness, and you will be met with open heart and open arms.

Walk with me with honesty, and you will have my heart.

 

Yours,

Mimi
