I am honored and excited to introduce you to one of my Magdalene sisters, Anaiya Sophia. Anaiya Sophia is a mystic, author and initiator of Sacred Marriage and the Mystical Teachings of the Feminine Christ. She is a wellspring of both wisdom and experience and is known for her role in birthing New Paradigm Relationships, Divine Sexuality and the Awakening of the Sacred Body. Anaiya shares her gifts through her video transmissions, workshops, retreats, pilgrimages and books including: Open your Heart with Kundalini Yoga (Harper Collins, 2002) Pilgrimage of Love (Lulu, 2011), Womb Wisdom (Inner Traditions, 2011) Sacred Sexual Union (Inner Traditions, 2013), The Rose Knight (Lulu, 2014) and Divine Relationship (Inner Traditions, 2016).
Anaiya lives in the Occitan region of Southern France, a land shrouded with myths and legends of Mary Magdalene, Cathars, Troubadours and the Knights Templars. It is here in this heartland that she receives small groups who feel the impulse to explore this work in the safety of her home. Together in union with the land – an immersive initiation into the Sacred Feminine is guaranteed.
Below, Anaiya shares with us two free video transmissions on sacred body awakening, along with information on her Sacred Body Awakening. You can learn more at her website www.anaiyasophia.com
Experience the ecstatic reunion of your body, mind, heart and soul. This is an initiation process into the revival of the Sacred Arts, the Mystery Teachings of Mary Magdalene, and the ones who came before her who knew the ‘ways’ of opening the body and heart to the fullness of life, both inner and outer. In the past the term ‘Sacred Arts’ was feared and forced underground, leading to a distortion of the teachings and their inherent beauty. Now, there is a revival and hunger for these Mystery Teachings to come full circle and imbue us once again with their ecstatic tenderness and fierceness to go all the way, so we may become the most powerful, beautiful and illumined version of ourselves in this lifetime. This is nothing less than a massive evolutionary leap.
We shall explore Sexuality, the fullness of embodying our divinity, humility and intimacy with one another, emotionally, physically and soulfully. We shall experience what it means to love with all of our bodies, to show up without armour, to forgive with the whole of our hearts and to stay true to ourselves when facing conflict. We shall ascend together, descend together and bring forth the fruit that is within us, as we have waited a very long time for this moment so our sacred gifts can be born. The Path of Sexuality and Love is so often unclear and unlived because so few have blazed the evolutionary trail ahead of us. It takes a huge heart to walk this path, and an incorruptible connection with the Divine to continue to go deeper. And that is why I am inviting you with warmth, tenderness and a dose of fierce urgency to come and replenish your soul and experience joyful heights of mystical opening along with delicious depths of divine embodiment, within the sacred space of my home with sincere aspirants and dedicated lovers of God. As this embodied aspect of the Feminine is needed NOW. For one another, and for the ones who will no doubt flock to our doors after such an experience.
A whole new meaning for the Divine Union of masculine and feminine within will be revealed. It will be an astonishing adventure to the frontiers of consciousness, a wild romp to the depths of our soul and a beautiful chance to plug ourselves into the heart of God/Goddess and begin to let our life be perfumed with ever-present grace. While the retreat will be based in love and joy, its guide, Anaiya Sophia, is no spiritual lightweight. She is intensely committed to go through whatever humbling’s and fierce truth-telling is required to open to the full divinity that can move through you. She offers medicine of a gnostic variety, transmissions and stories from the Christ Soul. Often at night you will be invited to curl up in candlelight as she imbues you with the Divine Love of Mary and Yeshua. Her transmissions touch a place within the heart and soul that thirsts for more, and more shall most definitely come. She knows that we need to feel the staggering love of the universe in every cell in order for us to truly birth what we are capable of birthing, and this includes the body, our sexuality, our breath, our words, our touch and our relationships. That staggering love is not found in intellect alone, No, it is found in entering into ecstatic, poetic and celebratory realms together. A Realm of deep touch, deep presence and deeper still, the depth of the soul where the unveiling of your role in the revival of the Sacred Arts can and will be discovered.
Make no mistake this retreat will be a truly transformational journey, one that will take you into parts of your being you may have never met, from the glorious heights to the murky shadows. However, it is journey based in totally unconditional, divine love and it will be undertaken with deep reverence and holy respect for every single aspect of your being. She believes, or perhaps more rightly KNOWS, that the time has come for us all to take part in the birth of the Divine Human. The Divine Human emerges out of the mysteries of the sacred marriage – an alchemical process in which the opposites in us (particularly masculine and feminine) are fused to create a divine third – the androgynous “love child” that is the Divine Human. And it is through the Sacred Arts that this child can be ‘conceived’ and guided into form. You may have touched, remembered and even hungered for this vision in your heart, but if you want to fully experience it in a living and breathing way, you’ll need an immersive environment with the right community, right teacher and right practices. It’s one thing to receive these teachings through the internet – and much depth and beauty can open in that way – but it’s truly an evolutionary next step to do so in communion with other people.
You will be invited to step out of your private, individual practices and enter into sacred sexual embodiment. This work is coming through the Feminine expression of Christ Consciousness. All the prayers and practises will be coming from the spiritual tradition of Mary Magdalene, a continuous lineage with the Feminine Principle that throughout the centuries has preserved its spiritual dignity, without need for permission or recognition from the patriarchy. Through your embrace of the Sacred Arts, you’ll…
- Find places and spaces within your body that were holding into sexual trauma, heartbroken memories and rejected parts of self
- Open to a larger field of divine grace, love and surrender that is only possible in woman-to-woman healing, loving and presence.
- Be empowered to embody the Mother, Lover and Mystic with no fear of sharing.
- Learn how to ‘hold and imbue’ sacred relationship to catalyse inspirational soul growth and depth of intimacy.
- Learn to experience and replicate new forms of ritual healing.
- Nurture the ecstatic flame at the core of your womb.
- Ignite deeper spiritual energies in your body via transformational body practices.
- Enjoy precious time for meditation and practice and be able to share the fruits of your awakenings with others.
- And to explore the land and legends of Sacred France and its ancient connections with the Cathars and Mary Magdalene. This region is famous for its heretics (original meaning ‘to choose’), sanctuary for Mary Magdalene/John the Beloved, and homestead of the Cathars.
