What is Your Magic?
Created and Facilitated by Lauri Ann Lumby, OM, MATS
Part of the Magdalene Priestess Training
What is Your Magic? was created to support you in knowing the truth that YOU are uniquely gifted to experience meaning and purpose in your life and to find fulfillment in the use and engagement of your gifts, first for yourself, and then, in service to the betterment of the world.
Through this 13 week course, you will have an opportunity to explore the twenty-six traditional spiritual (magical) gifts of the Judeo-Christian tradition, along with the spiritual gifts (siddhis) of the Yogic tradition, the Beautitudes of Jesus and some fun and fantastical gifts drawn both from reality and fantasy (ie: clairaudience, invisibility, time-morphing).
Scripture is used as a way of illustrating the use of these gifts, and mindfulness and creativity exercises are employed as a way of facilitating the process of discernment, supporting you in identifying which gifts you possess and how you are called to use these gifts in support of your own fulfillment and for the sake of the betterment of the world.
