The Magdalenes are women and men who have completed the Authentic Freedom Leadership training or the Magdalene Priest/ess Training. The Magdalenes are called and empowered through their own unique giftedness and within their own circle of influence to be a vessel through which Divine Love is brought forth into this world. I am honored and humbled to be in the company of this amazingly powerful community! This blog series features the Magdalenes and all the great work they are doing in the world.

I have to share a few things on my own about Michelle because I know she won’t do it for herself! 🙂 I have often said that Magdalenes are born not made, and that I know them by the recognition I first experience when meeting them. This could not be more true for Michelle! I first met Michelle when she was a little girl! She was helping her dad who was catering a retreat that I was facilitating in the early 90’s at the local Catholic Campus Ministry. I knew her right away. Fast forward ten years or so and I’m reporting for my first day of work at my new position as the Program Director at the Harmony Wellness Center in Oshkosh. There’s Michelle! We both stopped dead in our tracks and said, “Hey, I know you!” Michelle had just started at Harmony Wellness herself as a massage therapist and Reiki practitioner. The rest, as they say, is history. Since then, Michelle and I have worked together (disturbed the shit) on all matters of spiritual formation, healing and service to the community. Michelle has completed all of my classes, the Magdalene ordination, and spiritual director training, mostly under my direct guidance. At somewhere around 5’2”, Michelle is a force to be reckoned with. Welsh in ancestry, she is not to be confused with a Welsh Pixie….Michelle is a DRAGON! I love this woman like a sister and we have shared many, many lifetimes. I am grateful that the Magdalene brought us together in this life to remember our past, to heal what was lost and to bring it all forth, fully formed into this life. The world needs our magic and I am honored to share this journey with Michelle (and the miraculous beings that have come into the world through her children!). I love you Michelle!
