Beware of Club Mysterio and “Trance Dance Worship”

Friends, just when I thought I had come across all the wonky and aberrant cult like weirdness in the Wild Wild West of Christendom, yet another spiritual snow job pops up doing everything it can to convince the gullible, that “yeah, this really is a move of God and the Holy Spirit”…..”never mind the fact that we’re acting it out in a Kundalini serpent spirit, ala Rick Joyner and the now rather passe John Crowder. This is much cooler doncha know?”  NO! Stop! It’s not cooler…it’s just the Techno Trance Dance Craze deceptively wrapped up and being packaged, falsely, as  Christian worship.  Then, of course, we have the New Age Prophetess Patricia King, giving her stamp of approval to the mess.  May I humbly suggest, we not only don’t need to be following 99% of the so-called Christian “Rock Star” Ministries and “leaders”, but we would be better served spiritually to stick to the narrow road, the Word of God, the Holy Spirit, and with razor sharp discernment..those and ONLY those the Holy Spirit might direct us to. After examining this, I think you will agree that “Club Mysterio and Ekstasis Dance”  isn’t one of them. That said, I ask prayerfully….please warn others, especially the youth.


 Being one with a heart for young people the “trance formation dance” I’m going to bring to your attention here in this Apprising Ministries piece is a very dangerous thing for anyone to be doing—let alone impressionable youth. As another example of the Impact of Apprising Ministries, Georg Walter had written me asking if he could translate my articles into German, and while I was checking out his website this post caught my eye. Especially after observing the video Dj Caleb Leading Ekstasis Worship and one for something called Shambhala – Ekstasis Dance workshop (both below).

Having personally known some young men who were very much into the “Rave” scene from my coaching days, and being a former Club DJ myself before I met Jesus, I picked up on Caleb’s shtick immediately. I figured there had to be more to all of this, and as I felt led to look further into “Ekstasis,” I saw my friend Carla over at More Books and Things did a piece on this a year ago called New Worship Thing, which proved helpful. Another ol’ friend, Bud Press of Christian Research Service, was also sending a warning a year ago as well.

In his August 10, 2008 Points to Ponder, dealing with false teachers Melissa Fisher, Todd Bentley, IHOP, Caleb Brundidge, and Patrica King, Press tells us that in this opening video of Patricia King and The New Age Ekstasis Dance workshop:

King introduces the smiling Worship DJ Caleb Brundidge who, in turn, introduces Ekstasis worship and “Club Mysterio.” Brundidge takes the viewer into a new realm of worship and dance “into the ecstasy of God.”

At 5:08 into the video, watch the youth as they dance and bounce to the beat of the music, and pay close attention to Caleb Brundidge’s subtle words in the background, especially: “Well the words that we’re speaking become one at a cellular level in your body” and “…it’s no longer that you have to study the word…” (Online source)

Being I’ve been in this field of online apologetics and discernment ministry for quite some time now, just as with other types of Contemplative Spirituality/Mysticism, I just knew “Christians” had to have borrowed this “Ekstasis Worship” from pagan sources and then attempted to “Christianize” it. Sure enough, this newer form of trance dancing/worship begins as the quasi-Hindu “Kundalini Dance,” which was “developed” by Leyolah Antara Dekanic.

Her website tells us that:

Kundalini Dance is a unique form of ecstatic dance developed and taught by Leyolah Antara Dekanic world-wide over the past 11 years. Kundalini Dance is a practice that is deeply transformational and totally ecstatic, the practice rejuvenates the body, clears old stagnant emotional energy, brings insight and clarity into limiting beliefs and supports the awakening and integration of higher consciousness. Kundalini Dance is a revolutionary new method for self-healing and personal awakening. (Online source, bold hers)

This post is simply to make Christians further aware of the so-called “Ekstasis Worship” because it very likely will be also borrowed and adapted by the egregiously ecumenical Emerging Church aka Emergent Church—morphing into Emergence Christianity (EC)—and then begin showing up in evangelical Youth Group activities, if it hasn’t already. So here AM will just point out that when we go to the website of Ekstasis: An Ecstatic Dance Experience we find corraboration of the above by Dekanic as well as a reciprocal link back to her Kundalini Dance website.

What we’re dealing are the proverbial peas; though in this case, they’re within the same corrupt spiritual pod. From what I can determine right now it would seem to me that Caleb Brundidge aka DJ Caleb smelled the money followed “powerfully in the prophetic” and then ripped off adapted a “Christian” version of Rave/Trance Formation/Kundalini Dance so we learn “how to become free in worship.” But in reality, this is just another way that gullible undiscerning Christians (at best) are opeing themselves up to a very dangerous dance with the Devil.

    I am so glad to have found this. I have done a lot of research and study on my own into scripture and measuring false teachings against it. Finally, someone recognizes the issues I have myself have witnessed and was, finally, able to name.

  2. Hope Wingo says:

    Reblogged this on 1 Way 2 Yahweh and commented:
    This is a real-life picture of the end-times apostate church. It is absolutely unbelievable! (Also see the video of Rick Joyner’s church that Scarlett added to the comments section. Both videos are an example of God TV’s New Apostolic Reformation garbage.)

    • Scarlett says:

      Hope, thanks for the reblog and warning people. This so-called Apostolic Reformation nonsense was one of the biggest farces to hit apostate Christianity ever. Everybody and their dog was suddenly calling themselves a “Prophet” or an “Apostle”. One otherwise very devout Christian lady of my acquaintance from years ago when this mess started, told me her church had 12 Apostles. I said ,(with a tinge of incredulous sarcasm), “Really? Then who “ordained” them all?” To which she replied, “They ordained each other”.

    Reblogged this on By the Blood of the Lamb and commented:
    Just when I thought I’d seen it all. The masses are all being prepared to worship the beast, and they’re being lead away in their foolishness because they’ve rejected the truth.

    • Scarlett says:

      When the blind lead the blind, they all fall into the ditch the Lord has prepared for them.
      It’s like in the Land of the Blind, the one eyed man is king. It is foolishness to the ninth degree.

      • watchman73 says:

        I’m astonished still to find that people who call themselves Christian can be so foolish. So many do not know Jesus at all. It truly is a narrow path that few will find. Thanks for sharing this information! God bless you!

    • Scarlett says:

      It’s hard to keep up with the enemies tactics, to be sure. We are of sorts, Investigative Reporters for the Lord, to expose the evil works of darkness.

      • That is the Church’s God-given function: being lamp-stands, exposing what lies in darkness. I had just reblogged an article in which the writer mentioned having seen Patricia King in a dream; in my brief reblog comment I had said “I am unfamiliar with the woman she names.” I was not led to investigate her at the time, for the Lord was about to have you post THIS! Love how He works! Thanks, dear sister!

      • Scarlett says:

        Yes, each one working in harmony with one another under the Headship and unction of the Lord. He is amazing! Oh, that we would all allow Him always to have His Perfect Way. It would be such a more thrilling life in the spirit.
        Thanks for this intriguing comment.
        Lord bless you as well dear sister~!

  4. Maria, a gentle iconoclast says:

    Thank you, Scarlett – great post, needed!

  5. Jacky says:

    Dear Scarlett, I have heard of this man Rick Joyner and my spirit was warned about him but now seeing him I can see how. They are completely outside the will of God and the other video too. Where is the name of Jesus and repentance? Thanks for sharing this Scarlett, such deception and quite incredulous. God Bless jacky x

    • Scarlett says:

      What really amazes me sister Jacky is that many, not all, Christians, buy into this fleshly display of so called “worship”, but then, these supposed ministers, such as Rick Joyner, Patricia King and others are themselves deceived and deceiving others. I am incredulous that any Christian could so blatantly flaunt such satanic deception and call it a “ministry”.
      I appreciate your comment and take on this. Lord Bless you,

  6. Scarlett says:

    Rick Joyner’s “Prophetic Dance Team” unholy insanity. There is nothing edifying, enlightening, holy , or worship based about this…… It’s all flesh based and satanic from beginning to end. Avoid this and run away from it like your hairs on fire!
