Who is Gudni Gudnason?

I just can’t seem to let my fascination with the Rocky Mountain Mystery School go. Maybe it’s because it sounds somewhat like the title of a Dolly Parton duet with Harry Potter. Or maybe it’s because it’s founder, Gudni Gudnason, (what an awesome name!!) just intrigues me.

Gudni is everywhere and nowhere at once. Like all modern Mystery School founders, he is fabulously…well… mysterious. The net is full of him – he gets great Google rankings… But ask anyone if they have heard of him and the (more polite) reply is usually – who???

The RMMS teaches a holistic health modality called “DNA Activation”. DNA Activation is said to assist on an energetic level with every process your body and mind encounters and requires.  One of their practitioners published a post on this blog. Trust me, this is a nice person with her heart and mind in the right place…But Gudni just makes me wonder…and probably always will. 

Gudni Gudnason appears to be quite a big cheese in certain circles. He has his photo taken with all the right people. (Even Elvis – Check earlier posts). He and his Mystery School mates (no -it’s not Hogwarts Academy) are also possessed of such interesting credentials – including level 3 Protection and Security Specialists, as well as being ”High priests and priestesses”, etc, etc. The security qualifications are the interesting part – a bit of WTF??!

And then there is the family tree…their descendants are fascinating – the lineage of King Salomon (sic) and related to Jesus, Aleister Crowley and King David himself – which is quite an impressive list of rellies. Heck, no wonder they’re famous – in an underground sort of way. Problem is, the Big Cheeses tend to attract a few rats, and I think Gudni may not be immune…

Dr. Jekyll or Mr. Hyde?

But yet, you may ask – who the f…k is Gudni, and how come he has a following at all? Well what I have managed to dig up is that Gudni became quite a mover and shaker in esoteric circles with his claims that he was a follower of the order of the Golden Dawn and a descendant of the lineage of Salomon (sic).

He is an Icelandic by birth – hence the crazy name, who trained in various fields – body guarding, martial arts and so on, including some dabbling with this and that like psychology, acting and business management.

Some claim he is just an ordinary guy who found that L Ron Hubbard’s philosophy for making a few bob was a winner. After all, the founder of Scientology is said to have reckoned that the most profitable way to ever make a living was to found your own religion – Gudni has gone a step further and founded a whole Mystery Movement.

And yet others say he is a New Age Messiah. I am still a sceptic. Until he speaks to me and shows himself to me, I guess I’ll be a Doubting Thomas. Thing is, there are Mystery Schools popping up all over the place and RSA is no exception. Maybe someone can give me the real low down on Gudnason and what he is all about.

His bio states:

“Gudni “Ged” (must have enjoyed Ursula Le Guin’s Earthsea trilogy) was born in northern ‘Viking lands’ of Iceland and was initiated into the lineage of King Salomon with priesthood powers from high Priest Melchizedek, (this was done in the Great Pyramid of Giza) Guardian of the Secret of the Holy Grail and authorized to do the work by the HIERARCHY of LIGHT in all manner with the highest powers given to a human.”

Gudni-ness gracious! These days he is listed as a Dr. Gudnason, but I (and many others) can’t seem to track his PhD down anywhere.

But best of all is the fact that for a founder of an entire Mystery Movement, Gudni tends to ramble quite a bit. His life story is plastered over the internet and a simple Google search reveals that he is a blogger and a friend of social networking. Some of his ramblings are well, quite odd, and others are strangely funny. Like this nugget posted on Facebook on 21 Dec 2010:

“Christmas: an over rated commercial greed holiday that has nothing to do with the master of love: Jesus the Christ! So I am saying NO! I will not buy into the greed nor the hypocrisy and I will spend my money on helping the poor! Many worthy causes to focus on! No presents for anyone except grand kids who would not understand my thinking! LOVE TO ALL THIS SEASON! PEACE”

That was followed a few days later by this contradictory post on the 24th of December:

“Santa just called me and told me that he will be at my house today, 24th in Japan at 6 pm delivering my Christmas present: A Brand New TESLA!!!! This Christmas I go OFF GAS!!!! for good! My way of giving back to mother earth. Yesterday we fed 400 kids in the Philippines and they all good presents. Please remember those needy, bring them a smile this season! PEACE”

Hmmm, no giving into the hypocrisy – except for one small brand new motor vehicle – delivered by Santa himself – who coincidentally also is from a mystery location near the North Pole and runs his own brand of mystery school…for elves.….

Bless him, if anything he gives me a chuckle now and then – and that is a good (ni) thing! PEACE!!

    This all looks like old info – a few years ago, the name of the school changed to Modern Mystery School, and the DNA Activation is now called Life Activation. I met Gudni briefly about two years ago – he seemed really nice and humble. And the lineage is a lineage of teacher-to-student, not a family tree. Makes sense that King David would teach his son Salomon – Crowley isn’t in the direct lineage though.

      Hi Travis, thanks for taking the time to comment. Just a few quick observations…changing the name from the “Rocky Mountain Mystery School” to the “Modern Mystery School” is a great marketing exercise. You should never keep your brand stuck in one geographical location, as it limits it’s international “marketability”. And clearly, Mr. Gudnason is expanding his brand – and his market share.
      I noted that you are a “Life Activator” yourself, may I venture to ask what your investment in this modality was? I am a cynic and a skeptic (in the true philosophical senses of the words) so I have to say that I am not convinced that Mr. Gudnason doesn’t have an ulterior motive that isn’t quite as lofty as you would like to believe…like Santa dropping him off a new car last Christmas…Every time I ponder Gudni Gudnason, I come up with many more questions than answers. And because my “Gudni” posts get SO much traffic, I am thinking that there are literally thousands of people out there who have many unanswered questions too…like:
      If the lineage is from teacher to student, as you say, who was Mr. Gudnason’s instructor? And what qualified him? And why does Mr. Gudnason call himself Dr. Gudnason in certain circles – where did he do his PhD? And when? Why change the “DNA Activation” to “Life activation”? I thought my life was “activated” when I was born…Time for a new post…would you like to write it?

    You still curious? I’ll pick up where Travis left off.
