Course Title: Resurrecting Mary Magdalene with Magdalene Activation and Magdalene Ordination
Format: Self Study – you may begin at anytime
Guides/Instructors: Lauri Ann Lumby
Registration: register online
Length: Self-paced – 7 Modules over 35 days
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.
Those who have completed the course will be accepted into The Order of the Magdalene and will have FREE access to the “secret” Order of the Magdalene Facebook community, and will discounts on other Temple services (weekly service, empowerment newsletter, one-on-one mentoring with Lauri Ann Lumby).
