Facilitated by Lauri Ann Lumby, OM, OPM, MATS
Priestess of the Magdalene and High Priestess in the Order of Melchizedek
The Order of Melchizedek, created and facilitated by Lauri Ann Lumby, OM, OPM, MATS, is a two-year training program with an emphasis on ritual, divination, shamanic practices, healing and in-depth study of the Kabbalah. Through knowledge and practice, you will learn and discover the true origins and purpose of magic – which is to achieve Divine Union. When we, like the High Priest of Salem, Jesus and Mary Magdalene, achieve this state of Union, we become a vessel through which the loving nature of the Divine can be made manifest in our world, proving the alchemical adage, “As above, so below.”

The Order of Melchizedek training is highly transformational, supporting you in exorcising the fears, false perceptions and ego attachments that might otherwise prevent you from knowing Union, and empowering you with knowledge and skills which will support you in understanding the truest purpose of magic – to be a vessel through which the Divine vision of Love can be made manifest both in your own life and in the world around you.
Lauri Ann Lumby, OM, OPM, MATS is a Priestess of the Magdalene and the founder of both the Order of the Magdalene and the Temple of the Magdalene. Lauri has been a dedicated student of the Magdalene since first experiencing her portrayal in the rock opera, Jesus Christ Superstar in 1978. Lauri has since studied every scholarly work that has been made available on the Magdalene, and many works of fiction. Lauri has come to believe that Mary Magdalene was indeed Jesus’ closest disciple, possibly his wife, and that it was Mary who was ordained to continue Jesus’ mission of transforming the world from fear into love. Rejected by the patriarchy, the Magdalene influence has flourished in the mystical traditions of Christianity, though few would acknowledge this. The Magdalene has been a profound influence in Lauri’s own mission and has been the inspiration for Lauri’s writings, books, teachings and online courses all available through Authentic Freedom Academy.
Lauri Ann Lumby has her BBA in Marketing, a master’s degree in Transpersonal Psychology and has certificates in Pastoral Ministry and Spiritual Direction. She is a Reiki Master in both the Usui and Karuna traditions and is an ordained interfaith minister.
