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.

The World will Accept ANYTHING but Jesus Christ

The following snip is from a website sent to me by my neighbor, a hybrid Buddhist, New Ager, Native American Shamanism type person.

“About SHATTERING THE MATRIX: We will co-create the world we want when we have the courage to see what needs correcting & by becoming fully proactive in its creation”.

Yes, she/they actually believe this; at some point in time, there will be a tipping point at which time, the “enlightened ones” who have “evolved” spiritually will rule and master the “cleansed world” THEY have co-created, (along with some nebulous god out there somewhere in the universe). Flaky?  Yes, indeed. In fact, there seems to be no end to the delusional spiritual beliefs that run rampant throughout the New Age Community, and, even my own neighborhood, city and state.  These unscriptural, ungodly persuasions are not by any means in the minority in this part of the country. Using the example of my neighbor, allow me to share a bit of the, anything goes beliefs of the weird, bizarre, and deluded.

As I became acquainted with this woman, I think she must have mistaken me for one of her own, merely on finding my interest in medicinal herbal-ism, which seems to be popular among New Agers, Shamans and “Curandero’s”, ….or, that it was uncommon in this neck of the desert to come across someone who wasn’t of her ilk.  So, at first, I just allowed her to talk as I began to learn what I was dealing with concerning this lady. And it clearly was not going to be like minded fellowship or my cup of tea. I’d better make sure my armor is in place.

Shortly after moving in she shared with me that this was the first time in 35 years that her deceased mother ‘talked with her…this didn’t surprise me since the lady that moved out of that same apartment had a rather occult bent to her personality as well.  My neighbor, I shall call Trish, shared that the 35 yrs prior when her deceased mother communicated with her was at the Mausaleum where her cremated remains were vaulted, when she said she heard her mother’s voice cry out, “Get me out of here, there are evil spirits in here”. That’s strange enough because Trish said her mother had been a witch.  Sort of a pot kettle black situation. Imagine that, Satan and his demons are such pretenders. But I digress. So, my neighbor did just that…broke into the vault and took the burial urn with her mother’s remains with her. And then slept with them, until she interred them later in another plot.

Then, one day as we were visiting across the fence so to speak…(our apts are only at most 25 ft apart, facing each other; the conversation turned to cloning. She said without blinking that her best friend was a clone, and the most gentle soul you’d ever want to meet. I didn’t ask to be introduced for obvious reasons. If her friend was indeed a clone, I don’t believe he even had a soul, let alone being a gentle one. Cloned anything…or anyone is not from our Most High God and Savior, the Lord Jesus, or of His Creation.

Next day…it’s “extraterrestrials”. According to my neighbor, “Trish”, they are not only real, but they’ve been “harvesting” our DNA for the last 3,000 yrs. If that were true, seems like we wouldn’t even have enough DNA to get by on.  She didn’t tell me what they were doing with it, and I didn’t ask.

This summer alone, she has spent a total of 2 weeks at two different Indian Reservations participating, fasting and dancing at the Sun Dance Ceremonies.  It is at these ceremonies, body piercings are made into the skin and attached to a cord and the “sacrificee” is made to stand without flinching for hours. This is supposed to be a sacrifice apparently to the spirits to accomplish or answer certain prayers for healing or whatever the need is. What I can share with you about what she/Trish accomplished was getting her back out of place, her in pain, and demonic manifestations of anger and an escalation of her already in place mean streak.

So, you may be wondering if I shared the gospel  of the Lord Jesus Christ with Trish. Of course, and it was met with hostility and anger. “I will never forget her angry  words, “That man on the Cross didn’t change anything”, and “I don’t need any Lord and Savior!!!)   (My note; No, not all. His death on the  Cross was the pivotal point of all history, that’s  all)  In any case, this was the reaction of the same woman, who embraces all religions with open arms…all except Christianity and it’s Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.

So, does this tell you anything about why Christians can have no fellowship with unbelievers?

Ephesians 5:11….And do not have fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather even expose them.

Proverbs 1:10
My son, if sinners entice you, Do not consent.

Proverbs 28:4
Those who forsake the law praise the wicked, But those who keep the law strive with them.

John 3:20
“For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.

Acts 26:18
to open their eyes so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the dominion of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who have been sanctified by faith in Me.’

Romans 13:12
The night is almost gone, and the day is near. Therefore let us lay aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light.

1 Corinthians 5:9
I wrote you in my letter not to associate with immoral people;

2 Corinthians 6:14
Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness?

New Age-The Enemy of Christ Exposed

Documentary: The NEW AGE, (the enemy of Christ exposed)

Ok, so I will admit that back in the day, I ignorantly and stupidly got sucked into New Age. A lot of us did, as it was considered “cool”, and we didn’t want to be associated with that stodgy old-time religion. Bad move. Long story short, after studying for 8 or 9 months trying to figure out how to get into this “godhood” thing, I realized I was going down a dead-end road 90 miles an hour. One thing led to another, I got saved, filled with the Holy Spirit and after that for years I was so happy, so “on fire for God”, so engrossed with Jesus, and studying the bible, I was not only NOT interested in New Age, but was not aware of the growing encroachment of New Age practices and teachings creeping into the church, the Body of Christ.

All of that has changed. No longer can I ignore New age and occult coming into the church, because it’s everywhere. Christians are now holding Yoga classes in the church gym, Reiki, Eastern mysticism and meditation, contemplative prayer, wicca, and you fill in the blanks. Every aspect of New Age as well as many other occult themes are being introduced into the church. And what’s worse, is that the mainstream organized church has ignorantly embraced these practices as if it were fine with God. Well, guess what? It isn’t and I believe the LORD is calling his people to call out these false doctrines and practices and kick the devil out of His church. I believe He expects us to do this, not wait around for God to do something about it, but to be accountable to keep the church clean of corruption, false doctrines and false workers. 

Please take an hour to watch this documentary on the history and origin of New Age. And then join us in sounding the alarm and exposing it wherever you encounter it.


The Lie of the Serpent is the second part of the controversial Megiddo series, which next focuses on the highly influential New Age movement. But is the New Age really new? Or does it represent the ancient doctrine taught by the serpent to Eve in the Garden of Eden? The answer will startle and amaze you as you learn the influence of the serpent’s teaching through the spiritual explosion of occult activity in the 19th and 20th centuries.

Some of the greatest and most recognized people of the modern era (including Charles Darwin, Thomas Edison, Adolf Hitler and Hillary Clinton) have been influenced by the movement that has re-awakened mankind’s communication with the spirit realm, and re-shaped the Western view of God and His relationship to mankind. What are the implications of this “paradigm shift” that seeks to introduce a new global consciousness? Will this new consciousness really bring mankind into the dawning of a golden era? Or the awakening of another dark age?

Full of highly detailed research and exhaustive documentation, Megiddo II challenges even the most skeptical viewer to consider the consequence of the global awakening taking place before our very eyes.

Join speakers Dave Hunt, Caryl Matrisciana, Dr. Kent Hovind, Pastor Joe Schimmel, and Dr. Stan Monteith who expose the movement that seeks to unite mankind in a one-world religion through the United Nations.

Global adherents claim to await a “universal Christ” to lead the world. What happens to those who will not follow this world leader? And are there sinister warnings against those who refuse to be “initiated” into the New Age?


“… one of the greatest movies ever produced.
I think it’s one of the most important videos I ever saw in my life …”

“This stunning video is a loud & ringing wake-up call for slumbering Christians.
It covers the gamut from the roots of evolution in Genesis, the rise of spiritualism,
humanist world views, and the very real effects it has on our government and our own lives.
Don’t miss this one.”
