Mary, called Magdalene achieved the goal of the human experience – to become both fully human and fully divine.  In doing so, Mary embodied the Divine Feminine and the Divine Masculine in  perfect harmony and it was through this integration that she was able to grasp Jesus’ original teachings of compassion and love and bring them forward into the world.

2000 years ago, the world was not ready for her teachings, but today we are.  Join us as we explore the deeper and hidden truths about Mary Magdalene revealed during her time with Jesus:  her roles as student, initiate, co-equal partner, wife, facilitator and witness to the resurrection, and the one sent to continue Jesus’ mission of  being love in the world.

This Course includes the Magdalene Activation and concludes with the Magdalene Ordination through which you are empowered, through your own unique gifts and passions to fulfill the mission of LOVE in the world. 

Created and facilitated by Lauri Ann Lumby, OM, OPM, MATS

Guest Poet: Carol Klavon

It is my great pleasure to share with you a poem penned by one of our Magdalene sisters:  Carol Klavon. Carol is an initiate in the Magdalene Priestess Training and writing has been revealed as one of her gifts and part of her Divine calling.  Please enjoy her contribution below. 

Dark clouds roll in,
Cold rain splatters across my windshield.
Heads bowed as if in prayer,
In truth, a lame attempt at shielding against this bitter nor’ easter.

The news out of D.C. no better.
There’s a pervasive helplessness
Of my fellow countrymen,
As images of ANOTHER mass shooting
Flitter across the glowing screen.
In the midst of despair, there are peaceful warriors.

Sons and Daughters of Magdalene.
They step over, around, and yes,
Even doggie paddle, straight through the rivers of despair.

They are the young (and young at heart).
Mystics, dreamers, fools – call them what you may.

Lilies of the Valley and the Shepherds in the Hills….sons of Yeshua, daughters of Magdala.

They arm themselves, not with swords, but with jars of alabaster and the Word made flesh.

They come in peace, but bearing the double-edged sword….Truth on one side, Love on the other.

There is a secret I will tell you now…you are among them. You carry their Light nestled deep in your hearts.

There is no need to let them in, for they have already taken up residence. Don’t you understand? You are the lambs AND the wolves.

 

 

Carol Klavon in her own words: 43 year old Gnostic Magdalene Priestess. I enjoy reading/writing, mostly short fiction and poetry (mostly spiritual themes. I make a daily effort to remember my spiritual roots.

My goal is to live and work on the California Central Coastline, with at least 1 cat and one dog, a collection of books that rivals the Greek Library of Alexandria, and a parcel of land big enough to grow a community garden.

You can connect with Carol through her writing blog HERE.  She is also on Twitter @CarolKlavon.

 

I Know Why I’m Here

I know why I’m here, and as we stand at the ending (THANK GOD) of 2017 and at the threshold of 2018, I find myself even more aware of who I am, my purpose in this life and all the resources that have shown up along the way to make up the unique gift and call that I bring to the world. This is a calling so unique (and yet so simple and so universal) that words almost always elude me.  I have yet to find “the elevator speech” which adequately describes who I am and what I do.  What I do is kind of like my mom’s “Everything but the Kitchen Sink” soup…..there’s a little bit of this, a little bit of that, a pound or two of this, and a splash of that……all of which comes together to make the most amazing winter soup in the whole wide world.

On one hand, I am here to be and fulfill the Magdalene Mission.

What the heck does that mean????? Again, like my mom’s soup, it is a little bit of this and a little bit of that:

  1. Restoring Mary Magdalene to her rightful place in the Christian narrative, and in doing so, restoring women to their rightful place in the continuing mission of love, and in doing so, restoring the lost feminine to what once honored and empowered women equally with men but which very quickly sold the feminine out for the patriarchal norm and which then systematically sought out the destruction of anything that resembled feminine power.
  2. In restoring the feminine – reclaiming the INNER aspects of Jesus’ mission of love. Inner aspects which include: the primacy of contemplative prayer and meditation, the journey of self-knowledge, the process of becoming self-actualized (coming to know our unique giftedness and calling and being empowered to use these gifts for the sake of our own fulfillment and for the betterment of the world), which honors the inner authority (God) over any outside perceived authority and over any laws made up by man, which understood ritual as a vehicle of celebration and worship and not as a requirement for salvation.
  3. In reclaiming the inner – restoring egalitarian, collaborative, cooperative models of leadership and in the building up of community. Understanding the purpose of community to be that which supports and empowers individuals in self-realization, knowing that in doing so, the community and therefore the world are enriched and made better.

In doing all of the above, our understanding of the mission of Jesus is completely transformed.

  1. No longer do we believe that Jesus came to start a new religion, or to create anything that might separate one human being from another.
  2. We come to understand that Jesus’ mission had nothing to do with religion, tribe, nationality, gender, etc. but had to do with only one thing….and that one thing is UNIVERSAL.
  3. That one thing is LOVE.
  4. This is not a co-dependent kind of love that has anything to do with seeking approval or guidance from outside of us (including “God”), but is only found within in our intimate relationship with our highest self and that which some might call “God.”

When you mix this all together and put it in the crockpot, like my mom’s “Everything but the Kitchen Sink” soup, it boils down to one thing:  LOVE.

I am here for the purpose of Love.

And so are you.

How are you supporting yourself in living out your purpose?

 

 

Wild Woman Renaissance Starts TODAY!

Please join me TODAY as featured speaker in the Wild Woman Renaissance hosted by Shellie White Light.  Click on the image below to register and participate for FREE!!!!

FREE online Summit

August 1 – August 21

Join us HERE.

Do you know deep inside that your wild, creative light is being called to shine? Are you feeling stifled, stuck or even unworthy of stepping forward into this radiance? Then keep reading. Feminine leaders all over the world are being called to SHOW UP, and serve through their TRUE passion at this revolutionary time on earth. If you’re reading this, you’re one of them. ‘She’ has risen, and ‘Her’ voice is calling us to heal and serve NOW!

I understand how difficult it can be to have the courage to share your passions and align them with your Divine Purpose, especially if you are unaware of the true power your sexuality holds. Sexual sovereignty is directly linked to how to expression your God given gifts and unique contribution. When we are numb to our pain, we are also numb to our purpose. It’s time to TALK about those areas that have been silenced, shamed, objectified and oppressed, so we can rise and shine! No more waiting.

That’s why I’m so excited to let you know about The Wild Woman’s Renaissance that my sister Shellie White Light is hosting. This FREE online series of sacred conversations is empowering, life-changing, and transforming!

Shellie is a sought-after Sacred Sexuality and Spiritual Mentor, a vessel for Divine Mother’s Love. Growing up the only daughter to a long lineage of Baptist Preachers, she knows the wounding of religious and societal shame around sexuality and self expression all too well. However, her studies of the deeper Feminine-centered teachings of Jesus and Mary Magdalene, along with traveling the world studying with many shamans, healers, teachers, visionaries and creators of the highest caliber, has given her a unique set of tools and perspectives. Through these life experiences she birthed a passion for helping women acknowledge their own self-sabotage and break free from the chains that hold them back from a FULLY expressed existence; using a unique blend of intuitive shamanism and confidence coaching to guide women to embody their gifts and sensuality to courageously share their greatest service. That is what The Wild Woman’s Renaissance is all about!

I am one of 21 featured speakers on an experts panel of powerhouse female visionaries. It is an honor to share stories and tools along side these other women who are doing their work in the world as priestesses, shamanic pelvic floor practitioners, doctors of fertility and menstrual flow, womb wisdom carriers, mojo recovery specialists, orgasmic manifesting experts … and beyond! Together, our collective experience and skill sharing will help to embody and embrace sexual sovereignty so that you can begin to live from your own *juicy* creative connection.

This event starts on August 1st and runs live through August 21st, ending on the same day a Total Solar Eclipse crosses coast-to-coast across the USA!

This is a very powerful conversation happening at a *very* potent point on the timeline of our lives.

Shellie is a stand for all women everywhere living and expressing themselves, sexually and creatively, from a place of devotion and wholeness. This shift needs as many awakened lights as possible. Will you be a spark, a candle in the darkness?

Don’t wait, The Renaissance has begun.

For 2000 years, scripture has been interpreted to meet the needs of a hierarchical/patriarchal institution with a specific political agenda.  As a result, scripture has been used to justify all sorts of non-loving behaviors, even unspeakable acts of violence against those who cannot (in their good conscience) adhere to the institutional agenda.  Many people have been directly harmed by this approach to scripture and have turned away from scripture, missing its original intention which is to be a key to unlock the door to our higher consciousness and to create a pathway through which we might have access to the wisdom and power of the Divine.

Scripture through the Eyes of the Magdalene frees scripture from its institutional, doctrinal and dogmatic constraints and restoring it to its rightful place as a beautiful piece of wisdom literature.  When scripture is approached through the three-layer process of interpretation and then experienced through specific contemplative and creativity practices, it gives us access to our highest truths and guides us along the path of our highest good. This is the approached that the Magdalene learned through Jesus and which she then sought to share with others.

Each 90 minute live session will include:

  • A scripture reading.
  • A presentation on the reading’s historical/cultural background.
  • A contemplative or creative practice for use with that scripture.
  • Lecture.
  • Sharing and Discussion.
