A person who practices mysticism, or a reference to a mystery, mystic studies or the occult.
Mysticism is the phenomenon of having a unique experience of communion with God, an ultimate reality, divinity, or insight into spiritual truths.
Sometimes the words Enlightenment and Illumination (from Latin illuminatio, meaning 'a lighting up' or 'an enlightening') can be used to describe the mystical experience.
Mystics are often part of a larger religious tradition, and form spiritual movements within their religion, such as Vedanta and Kashmir Shaivism within Hinduism, Kabbalah within Judaism, movements of Christian mysticism and Sufism within Islam.
