Matthew is an American-born spiritual teacher who splits his time between England and Portugal. He has been teaching for 25 years and is the author of The Way of the Mystic-Wizard, and the creator of the Mystic-Wizard Experience. Both are devoted to helping people develop and sustain a daily mystical and shamanic spiritual practice.

Matthew’s teachings focus on connecting people to their inner spiritual allies and their own soul. In addition, he directly introduces people to their essential consciousness, called Pure Awareness. Experiencing Pure Awareness can open individuals to inner stillness and clarity with less egoic self-consciousness. This experience can lead to a sense of release into a timeless and effortless sense of inner completeness, commonly called one’s natural state.

Matthew is one of the only teachers today who explicitly focuses on teaching the combined paths of Shamanism and Nondual Mysticism as a way to transformation, spiritual awakening, and empowerment. His ongoing mission is to help others fulfill their creative and spiritual potential and live fulfilling and meaningful lives.

The Mystic-Wizard Experience (MWE)

The Mystic-Wizard Experience is based on Matthew’s two decades of experience in teaching students to enter the inner world through shamanic pathworking journeys. These journeys introduce and connect people to a living stream of wisdom and spiritual empowerment. The goal is a transformed sense of self, an increased feeling of well-being and purpose, and a genuine life mastery.

Institute for Nondual Shamanism (NDS)

Matthew is the Founder and Spiritual Director of the Institute for Nondual Shamanism which seeks to investigate the overlap between shamanic and mystical paths and develop the practice and teaching of transformation. Those working within the institute are continually refining and developing the Way of the Mystic-Wizard and the Mystic-Wizard experience.


Today, Matthew devotes most of his time to teaching The Way of the Mystic Wizard and the ongoing development and leadership of the Institute for Nondual Shamanism. He offers regular introductory online workshops called The Mystic-Wizard Experience and longer, more in-depth sessions in the Way of the Mystic-Wizard. Occasionally, he gives spiritual talks, attends conferences, and works with highly motivated individuals seeking spiritual awakening and self-development.
