In the article, devoted to the tradition of mysticism in Russia, the nature and forms of mystical comprehension of reality are examined in historical retrospect. The history of the appearance, distribution and change of ways of mastering the world, alternative to science, touches upon the problems of religious and philosophical mysticism. The Orthodox tradition of ishihasm and neoishihasm is analyzed in detail, the importance of its influence on the spiritual life of the society is revealed. The authors introduce historical material about "Alexandrov mysticism" into circulation and comprehend the reasons for strengthening the West European mystical moods in the XIX century. The paper considers the theosophical heritage of E. Blavatsky, the mystical and pedagogical ideas of R. Steiner, «the vitasofia» of J. Bocan, the esotericism of K. Castaneda, who found a large number of admirers in modern Russian society. The authors note that the peculiarity of social consciousness is ideological syncretism and gives the characteristics of this phenomenon. The article analyzes the reasons for the "survivability" of mysticism, the variability of its forms and manifestations, in particular, adaptability to any means of perceiving reality, its desire to merge, or to enter into conflict, with different types of worldview (for example, science, philosophy and religion). The influence of changes in the sphere of informatization and communication on the wide distribution of mystical literature and practices. It is noted that the mechanisms of human interaction with reality through mystical traditions are not always clear, very broad and multivalued, insufficiently studied and require further research
