“I first came across Mt Nysa Mystery School as what I would consider a divine blessing: I knew I was interested in connecting with Hellenism but needed the guidance to know where to start in a very heavily academic field. My mentorship has been thoughtfully constructed based on my interests and goals, with a strong foundation in ancient sources coupled with space to be creative. The mentorship has inspired me in my devotional practice ... deepened my knowledge in Hellenic praxis, and assisted me in finding my own individual path in this beautiful ancient religion. For anyone interested in the study of ancient religion, particularly Hellenismos, this is the place to be. With the freedom to explore your own path, coupled with the approachability of Priestess Bria Nuccio and her incredible knowledge and enthusiasm, I would thoroughly recommend to you.”
