From Religious Cult to Spiritual Liberation – a Testimonial

I received this powerful testimonial from one of the women who recently completed the full Magdalene Priestess Training and in doing so, received her second ordination.  Thank you Carol K. for your beautiful words and most importantly, for sharing your beautiful Soul with all those who have journeyed through this process with you.  Love, Lauri

 

After escaping a religious cult (and navigating my way through a spiritual and emotional breakdown), I decided to re-enter the online spiritual community. I knew that my beliefs could best be described as “Gnostic” or “heretical” (still are). Lauri Lumby’s Magdalene mini-course was the first thing I stumbled upon, via Motherhouse of the Goddess.

I’d read books on Mary Magdalene and alternative gospels by Starhawk, Elaine Pagels, and Margaret Starbird and agreed there was much more to the story.

What I didn’t expect was the open honesty pouring out of the various students. Not to mention the gentle guidance and affirmations from Lauri herself. A far cry from my previous experience with that other group, where my visions and interpretations were all shot down as products of my own ego, rather than coming from Spirit.

I think I’ve taken just about every course taught by Lauri, except those in the Order of Melchizidek. I recently completed my second ordination within the Magdalene Priestesshood.

Lauri always encourages students to find their truth. No pressure. No dogma. Because of her, I am exploring avenues I never thought would be possible for me. I’m even exploring the possibility of teaching a course myself. I am seeing more options open themselves up to me as I become more empowered in .y gifts. Thank you so much, Lauri, for helping me find my true worth!

Magdalene Priestess Training Testimonials:

 

Honouring and living in the energy of the Divine Feminine is what many women (and men) seek these days.  This is certainly what I was looking for when I came across Lauri’s website and her course on training to be a Magdalene Priestess.  I particularly wanted to learn more about the Mary portrayed in the Bible, but without the religious dogma. 

And this is where Lauri has presented a series of workshops that have captivated me for the last 8 months.  It is a safe environment where I can release my internal struggles whilst Lauri supports and guides me with compassion and a deep knowing of exactly what I need on my journey to becoming an enlightenment woman and Priestess.

Mary H, New Zealand

 

The Magdalene Priestess training program has enabled me to understand myself through the eyes of the Magdalene energy. To see my magic. My gifts that I always knew where there, but could never own them. 

Through the program I feel I can share this gifts with others to help heal and support through a Divine Love and understanding that we are all one.  Allowing each of us to share our uniqueness and giftedness, and give back to the Divine Universe, and the Divine in all us. “

Maria De Robertis Geltrude

 

I have found all the levels and layers of the Priestess training to be deep and truly helpful in my life long search for growth and connection with the Source. It has taught me to listen to my inner awareness and affirmed universal truths  in beautiful ,poetic ways. I am grateful for this and having Lauri’s feedback on personal issues when working on the classes. I’d highly recommend these classes to anyone seeking a depth and inner awareness to  enhance their lives and find meaning in a difficult world. Thank you.

Jane G.

 

Over the past several years, I did so much spiritual research that I literally researched myself into a “Dark Night of the Soul.” Just recently, for the first time, I prayed to my women ancestors for direction and within days I was led to Lauri Ann Lumby’s ‘Temple of the Magdalene Priestess Training Program.’ This training is one of the best gifts I have ever given myself! It has presented me with a new direction in life, opened new doors of spiritual thought and ways of being for me, and reconnected me not only with the Divine itself, but the Divine within my OWN SELF as well. 

And Lauri is a true “kindred spirit.” She is encouraging and completely genuine, and offers personal feedback through the online classroom to each and every one of her students, as well as privately via personal sessions. She is a true mentor. I truly mean all of these words from my heart.”

Kimberly E., Texas

 

The Magdalene Priestess Training was life changing for me.  After having Mary come to me in a shamanic vision six months prior I had begun to explore her world intensely, finally coming across this wonderful experience.  The training was rich, filled with love, challenging and insightful and I would recommend it to anyone wanting to walk a path with Mary Magdalene as a modern woman or Priestess.

Julie Parker, www.juliesuzanneparker.com

 

I’m very grateful first off to know Lauri for at least a decade. I have had the privilege of taking all of her courses. The Magdalene Priestess course solidified an anointing into a higher ideation of woman elevated to priestess, goddess and queen. Mary Magdalene has been forgotten, shamed and misrepresented for millennia and it is time to receive the energy, purity and strength of this mystical woman’s desire – all she embodied and claimed – the truth of who she was and who you are. I highly recommend this course as well as any of Lauri’s other work or books.

 Linda J, Larsen , WI

 

 

The Magdalene Priestess Training has been life-changing for me! This training has helped me change my perspective on things happening in my life and how I can discern my gifts and live my most authentic life. Her classes are so empowering to women in a world where we are taught to keep our heads down and our feelings to ourselves. Honestly one of the very best things I have ever done for myself!

Kerry E.

 

As a business owner, nutrition counselor, and and thought leader in the health care field, I chose to take the Magdalene Priestess Training with Lauri Lumby. I am always interested in learning how to become the best version of myself, and also empower those around me to do the same – to use one’s gifts and express them without regret! I’ve found that on this journey, taking a deeper look at my calling in life and god-given gifts has allowed me to thrive in areas that feel natural to me. Never did I imagine that someday I would be a business owner, boss, speaker, writer, and figure of influence in the community. With that being said, taking care of oneself in order to succeed at those things is key. Lauri has taught me to practice self care, claim my needs and boundaries in life, and it is through her course that I have grasped a better understand of who I am. Knowing my gifts and utilizing what’s unique about myself is very freeing and empowering. And being able to share that love and message with those around me in my professional and personal life is an honor. There’s no need to compare when you know who you, what you bring to this world, and love yourself completely. Thank you, Lauri!

 Carol Klavon, OM

Carol Klavon is a modern-day mystic, self-professed heretic, writer and storyteller. In 2015 she published a short work entitled Mother of Peace: a re-telling of Yeshua’s ministry from the point of view of the unlikeliest witness: the Princess Salome.  She has also written several short poems dedicated to the struggles of being a modern mystic, along with a collection of poems, stories and art dedicated to the Mother and those who love her. Carol is currently working on a full-length supernatural thriller about the ancient Sumerian death goddess Erishkigal, entitled “Little Tin Goddess”. It’s a story of fallen angels, dying gods, reincarnation, politics, lust, love and redemption.

Carol lives in Central California and you can connect with her through her online community dedicated to the Magdalene: https://plus.google.com/communities/115863876802639990455

Below is a short poem by Carol entitled, The Modern Magdalenes:

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.

The 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.

This blog series features the Magdalenes and all the great work they are doing in the world.

 

Magdalenes, Meet the Magdalenes, Magdalene Priestess, Magdalene Priestess Training, Maria Geltrude, VastuMaria Geltrude is a Certified Public Accountant and Certified Vastu Practioner. (Vastu is the original Feng-Shui as written in ancient Vedic texts from India)

Maria has been an entrepreneur and businesswoman for over 27 years. As a Certified Public Accountant, she has been a partner in her own practice which she co-founded over 23 years ago. Maria has serviced a multitude of clients on a financial consulting level. During these interactions with her clients, she has become more aware of the energetic environments behind their successes and failures.  Several years ago, her personal interests in the study of eastern traditions and philosophies led her to the powerful energetic science of Vastu Shastra.  Maria began Vastu Environments, three years ago, to offer her clients the ancient wisdom of Vastu, which she fuses with her financial background in accounting. Maria now accounts for energetics in her client’s homes and offices to bring in prosperity, abundance and overall harmony.  Learn more about Maria at www.vastuenvironments.com

 

In Maria’s Own Words:

Vastu is the ancient wisdom behind the sacred architecture of India. The universe is filled with energies that influence, empower and heal us. Vastu teaches us how to bring these energies into our buildings to create the natural flow of prosperity and abundance in all aspects of our lives such as wealth, health, love and career.

Over the past seven years, I have been on a spiritual quest to uncover and discover myself…who I am and what my true calling is in this lifetime. I grew up an Italian Catholic girl with parents that both immigrated during the 60s to find a better way of life.  I feel that my spiritual quest brought me to a similar realization…one where I had to find a better way of thinking. Over these years, I have learned many different philosophies, specifically Eastern thought processes and various shamanic techniques. Then, finally, the Magdalene Priestess Training which returned me back to my roots on a totally different level. The Magdalene program has allowed me the ability to look at my life with a sense of empowerment, strength and courage. It has validated the spiritual authority I feel and finally can own within myself. As a Magdalene Priestess, I will move forward in the world encouraging and supporting women… and men too, through my Vastu practice, Vedic wisdom and now the Priestess training.

A special thanks to Lauri for her support and blessings. Thank you sister for delivering the words and teachings of the Magdalene to the world.

The Order of Melchizedek is an off-shoot of the Magdalene Priestess Training, presenting the primordial tradition of Judeo-Christian magic.  If you are called to ritual, divination, and shamanic practices, this program might be for you.  Take a look at the Level One Training:

You can learn more about Michelle and her ministry at www.mlstherapeuticmassageandreiki.com.

 

I have to share a few things on my own about Michelle because I know she won’t do it for herself!  🙂   I have often said that Magdalenes are born not made, and that I know them by the recognition I first experience when meeting them.  This could not be more true for Michelle!  I first met Michelle when she was a little girl!  She was helping her dad who was catering a retreat that I was facilitating in the early 90’s at the local Catholic Campus Ministry.  I knew her right away.  Fast forward ten years or so and I’m reporting for my first day of work at my new position as the Program Director at the Harmony Wellness Center in Oshkosh.  There’s Michelle!  We both stopped dead in our tracks and said, “Hey, I know you!”  Michelle had just started at Harmony Wellness herself as a massage therapist and Reiki practitioner.  The rest, as they say, is history.  Since then, Michelle and I have worked together (disturbed the shit) on all matters of spiritual formation, healing and service to the community.  Michelle has completed all of my classes, the Magdalene ordination, and spiritual director training, mostly under my direct guidance.  At somewhere around 5’2”, Michelle is a force to be reckoned with.  Welsh in ancestry, she is not to be confused with a Welsh Pixie….Michelle is a DRAGON!  I love this woman like a sister and we have shared many, many lifetimes.  I am grateful that the Magdalene brought us together in this life to remember our past, to heal what was lost and to bring it all forth, fully formed into this life.  The world needs our magic and I am honored to share this journey with Michelle (and the miraculous beings that have come into the world through her children!).  I love you Michelle!

Magdalene – Tracey Wickham, UK

Tracey Wickham is an Angelic Healing Practitioner, Reiki Master, Meditation Guide, Hand Mudra Energy Healer, Crystal Therapist and Archangelic Life Coach. Tracey is a voracious learner and has many more qualifications to follow. She lives in the West Midlands of England with her tabby cat Cedric.  Learn more about Tracey’s work (or better yet, sign up for one of her amazing sessions) through her website: www.traceywickham.co.uk

Tracey’s journey of embracing her Magdalene calling: in her own words:

I have been interested in healing for as long as I can remember.

My mum used to suffer from migraines when she was alive and I hated seeing her in pain. In fact I used to try and help alleviate the pain, using my hands, although I knew nothing about Reiki at the time.

My first qualification came as a Crystal Therapist, and these days I work with Etheric Crystals so that I can offer clients crystal therapy on a distance basis. Although Etheric Crystals are not here in the physical they are very affective and much more powerful than working with the physical form.

In 2012 I became a Reiki Master and since then I have continued to study many different forms of Reiki. In fact I have some attunements lined up so there is more to come.

I set up my website as I want to be able to help as many people as possible. And one way to do this is to offer all my work on a distance basis.

In the past when I have worked with friends this way it has proved to be successfully. They all said at the time that they benefited enormously, whether they had distance Reiki or a distance Crystal Therapy session.

I am an Angelic Healing Practitioner and have been accredited by the IAOTH. I am going to start studying for my advanced certification soon.

In 2016 I studied with Charles Virtue and became a certified Archangelic Life Coach. As a result I am able to offer clients a number of oracle card readings.

Since gaining my Meditation Guide certification I have added 1 to 1 online guided meditation sessions for four different things including depression and relaxation.

I have also got a certification in Energy Healing Hand Mudras and I am very excited about this. Let me explain. Hand Mudras can be sent energetically just like Reiki. It is my intention to start offering clients a number of Hand Mudra distance sessions. Now I may be wrong, but I don’t think I have ever seen this form of energy healing being offered to clients elsewhere, and if I am correct it will be an honour to be the first, or among the first, to do this.

Something I am looking forward to offering clients is EFT. I hope to finish the course I am taking next week and once I have received my certification I shall start offering 1 to 1 online sessions.

I guess you may have discovered reading this that I am passionate about healing and helping others.

Since becoming an ordained member of the Order of the Magdalene I have come to realise that healing work and helping others is my ministry. And I am proud to rise to that challenge to the best of my ability. To me this calling is a blessing.

Not everyone lives near an alternative therapist or can afford their fees. I hope that by offering my services this way those who would not otherwise receive the help they need will be able to do so.

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

The Rise of the Divine Masculine

The Divine Masculine is a quality that resides within all of us – whether we identify as man, woman or other. In Western “civilization,” the Divine Masculine has been mostly absent as we have lived under the tyrannical reign of the unholy masculine.  The unholy masculine is the corruption of all that was originally intended in the divine masculine and is known by its motivation which is fear, power and control. The unholy masculine takes control and then rules through these motivations, making others subservient to it, creating a hierarchical, patriarchal paradigm which privileges male over female,  competition over cooperation, taking over sharing, war over peace, violence over harmony, etc. etc. etc.  It is the unholy masculine (along with its hideous partner the unholy feminine) that is destroying our world.

Divine Masculine, Holy Masculine, Divine Feminine, Holy Feminine, unholy masculine,

The Divine and Holy Masculine is none of these things and is/was the original way in which human beings were meant to live – in partnership with the other half of our Divine Souls – the Holy Feminine.

The purpose of the Divine Masculine is to defend our Soul. The Soul is the Divine within us which seeks to be known in and through the world.  The Soul is the bearer of our unique giftedness and the unique calling we all have to find meaning and fulfillment in our lives, for our own sake and then in service to the betterment of the world.  The Soul knows who we are and who we are called to be.  But, because we live in a world that does not honor our Soul, the Soul has become vulnerable.  Instead, the world around us (that has been created by the Unholy Masculine) tries to tell us who we are and how to live our lives.  Every time our Soul – our true calling – tries to make itself known, we are criticized, condemned, judged, even rejected because the Soul cannot be put into a box.  Our Soul wants FREEDOM in a world that seeks to imprison us with its fear.

As we begin to listen to the voice of our Soul, a great healing takes place. We begin to see through the lies and manipulations of the unholy masculine (and the unholy feminine).  We also begin to see how we have all indulged in and been controlled by the unholy within and outside of us.  We come to understand the deep woundedness within us that caused the unholy to emerge in the first place and we work toward healing these wounds.  Then, and only then, can the Holy within (that which is our truest nature) begin to emerge.

For people of all genders, this journey begins with the rise of the Divine Feminine. We begin to understand our feminine gifts of receiving and allowing, nurturing and supporting.  We become comfortable with our emotions, the ever-shifting sands of the human experience, the light and the darkness that is the human journey.  We get to know death, and loss, challenge and hardship and we learn how to be with it all.  Finally, we do the deep excavating work of Soul Retrieval – diving deep into our own shadows where we have hidden, stuffed, even rejected the parts of our Soul that we (or our society) would not accept….and we bring them forth into the light.  Here, we begin to know who we are, what we need and how we are called to be in the world. Once we get a pretty good handle on this….the Divine Masculine steps in.

The Divine Masculine is the energy within us of provision and protection. The Divine Masculine is the hunter, going out into the world and bringing to us what we need to support the unfolding of our Soul’s purpose.  The Divine Feminine tells the Masculine what is needed, and “he” brings it.  The Divine Masculine is also the gallant knight who stands at the gate to our Soul defending its unfolding.  In this role, the purpose of the Divine Masculine is to set boundaries, to say who and what will be a source of support for our Soul’s mission and purpose and then unapologetically says who or what shall pass through our gate.  (This unapologetic nature is something I have long admired in the men and women that I know who possess this trait!)

As divine expressions of the Love that made us all and seeks to be known in and through us, we deserve nothing less than becoming our true Divine nature – masculine and feminine, and ultimately whole.
