Since the Gospel of Mary Magdalene became readily available, and the DaVinci Code popularized the Magdalene, many interpretations around what it means to be called to the Magdalene path have been set forth.  Few, however, are authentic to Mary’s own words or to the title bestowed on her by her teacher and beloved, Yeshua.

Mary alone is recognized by Yeshua as the one among his disciples to have achieved the fulfillment of his teachings. Applying both the public and private lessons bestowed on her by Yeshua, Mary, like Yeshua, became anthropos.  To be anthropos is to become fully integrated and whole within oneself such that one’s Divinity might be fully embodied within one’s humanity.

The Magdalene Mastery course introduces the Magdalene calling as it is set forth in Mary’s own gospel.  Here you will get a glimpse into the essential principles and practices of the Magdalene calling – that which is required to follow this calling with integrity and what you will be invited to continue as you live this calling in the world.  This course can be approached as an opportunity to more fully discern this calling, in preparation for further study, or as a refresher for those who have already completed the full Magdalene Priesthood Training.

The Magdalene Mastery course has been researched, developed, and tested by Lauri Ann Lumby, OM, OPM, MATS, scholar of the Magdalene. adherent to her path, creator and facilitator of the Magdalene Priesthood Training and spiritual director of the Order of the Magdalene.

spiritual counseling, Lauri Ann Lumby, transformational counseling, empowerment, healing and transforming fears and unhealed woundsLauri 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.
