Dr. Stylianos Atteshlis (1912- 1995) was a Christian esoteric healer and mystic. Not many people outside of the Cyprus, the Greek Orthodox and the Hellenistic world know about him these days. He was also known as Daskalos (meaning “teacher” in Greek). What intrigues me about Daskalos was that he represents a genuinely spiritually powerful person who kept to himself, lived a life of relative obscurity and worked as a civil servant to pay his bills and earthly life, offered his healings freely. His spiritual life and faculties as a mystic was what made him famous particularly in Europe.
We often hear about these stories of gurus in India or Taoist masters in China who are able to engage in incredible abilities, like visiting different dimensions, talking to spiritual entities, live on nothing but air (prana), heal people from vast distances and being able to perform death-defying physical abilities.
What most people in the West fail to understand and see is that there are just as many powerful and spiritually advanced persons right here in the West also. We just don’t hear about them and I think that is a good thing. I’ve said it before and I will say it again; genuine spirituality and ability has nothing to do with money and fame. That is nothing more than a Western, capitalistic construct. Real spirituality is about service, that in healing, uplifting or helping others cross the river, it also comes back to us and that eventually has a ripple effect across the species. Enlightenment of one individual means zero unless that individual then decides to come back to help others along their way.
To those who are still looking for genuine teachers and guides, not a plastic shaman or new age fraud, I will also add this; they exist. There is a network of genuine teachers and guides who have no other interest than to help humanity evolve to the next stage. You will not find them on the internet. You will not find them on FaceBook. You will not find them if you decide to go hang out in an Indian ashram or in Dharamsala with the Tibetans in exile there. That search is first and foremost an internal process. You need to have worked on yourself and your issues cleanly and diligently, and when the time comes, whether by fate, or personal merit, serendipity, whatever, you will cross paths. It can’t be bought, forced or orchestrated, it happens when it happens.
3 books about Daskalos were written by Kyriacos Markides, “The Magus of Strovolos”, “Homage to the Sun”, and “Fire in the Heart”. In these books, Stylianos Atteshlis was given the alias Spyros Sathi. Stories of his healings, his ability to bilocate (appear in two different places at once), his ability to connect telepathically to others and so much more were outlined in his books and made him well-known far from his native Cyprus. I have read all three books and while I know that later in life, Daskalos dissassociated himself from Markides, even still reading them, one can’t help but sense there is truth in Daskolos words and acheivements.
Daskalos passed on in 1995. I only came to know about him because my first spiritual teacher and guide in Cappadocia was a student of Daskalos’ formost student, Mr. Kostas. Daskalos’ teachings and his legacy are now in the hands of his daughter, Panayiota. His teachings are looked after by her and the organization she founded The Researchers of Truth. After Daskalos passed on, there was a split between Panayiota and some of Daskalos’ former students including Mr. Kostas. Panayiota, while not having the power and spiritual faculties of her father, legally could transmit the teachings through the Reasearchers of Truth. Mr. Kostas and some others in that group, who do have those abilities which Daskalos had, they founded a group called Erevna instead. I’m not going to discuss about the break too much but it’s here to highlight that there is a break and should anyone want to pursue these teachings further, to be aware of this.
From the Reasearcher of Truth webpage:
“It is not possible for anyone using words from any language, to adequately describe who and what Daskalos, Dr. Stylianos Atteshlis, really is. Nor is it possible for anyone to completely describe the teachings of the Researchers of Truth that poured through Daskalos like a mighty river. However, it is quite possible for anyone to love and respect Daskalos the mystic-healer whose potent works spanned seven decades. His was a life of healing and the teachings of the Researchers of Truth publicly began in 1919 on the island of Cyprus at the far eastern end of the Mediterranean Sea – just off the coast of Syria. At this time, Cyprus was primarily populated by Greek-Christians and Turkish-Muslims. Cyprus had also just formally been annexed from the Turkish by the British after more than three centuries of Turkish Muslim control. But it would be 41 years more before Cyprus would gain its independence from the British.
In 1919 the young Daskalos, was already able to Self-Consciously travel to the worlds of the higher dimensions. At seven, he could speak the languages of his past lives and consciously communicated with “great intelligences” that guided him from the worlds beyond. His parents knew this and believed in his abilities but warned him not to reveal these things to other people. From the beginning of this incarnation Daskalos knew who he was and the purpose of his life on Earth. What he did not know at the beginning was that all the people around him were not like him. He thought everyone could communicate with these higher intelligences whom he called brother guides; but he was about to find out just how different he really was.
Over the course of the next seventy plus years, Daskalos established 100 independent circles of study worldwide and many, many thousands of students have come into these circles and personally experienced profound spiritual awakenings and undeniable healings. So-called “incurable” diseases, such as deadly cancers, were “miraculously” cured in the presences of Daskalos. Daskalos’ extraordinary healing skills also enabled the so-called “permanently” lame and disabled to walk freely again. Daskalos not only healed physical aliments, but those whose hearts carried deep and primal emotional wounds found relief under his loving care. And those who walked in mental darkness, negativity and confusion were lead out of the shadows and back into the light by Daskalos’ wise counsel.
Daskalos’ readiness and ability to train interested seekers of truth in his advanced methods of healing and truth-seeking was remarkable. He helped countless seekers raise their consciousness to higher and higher levels. He established various study circles that revealed deeper and deeper teachings to the students as they advanced; the outer circle, inner circle, in-more circle and in-most circle. To those serious researchers who were prepared, he earnestly provided more advanced training, in such things as psychonoetic form construction, Exosomatosis [conscious out of body experience – OBE], distant healing and much more. Daskalos placed the well named, “Golden Keys” to the kingdom of the heavens in our hands -and taught us how to use them.”
YouTube has a few videos of Daskalos, here’s one which the audio quality is bit better.
