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.

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.

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!

My Love Child

For the past several years, I have been operating two distinct and separate businesses: Authentic Freedom Academy and Temple of the Magdalene. While there has been much overlap between these two aspects of my offering to the world, they individually represent two aspects of my own being.  Authentic Freedom Academy represents the more linear, pragmatic, academic and therefore masculine aspects of whom I am.  Temple of the Magdalene has become the platform through which I have channeled the more interior, inner, shadowy, esoteric, and therefore feminine parts of whom I am.  I have bounced back and forth between these two poles depending on where I am in my personal journey and what aspect of myself needed attention.  I have always felt a little  divided as I have nurtured both of these offerings and confused as I have tried to navigate how best to share these offerings in the world.  The question has always been, “Who am I and where do I want to focus my attention?”

Not anymore. As will always be the case when we enter fully into the dance of the masculine (active) and feminine (receptive) within us, the Holy Child will be born.  Authentic Freedom (dot) Love is that child – born out of the full integration of the masculine and feminine within me, a new life has come forth – one that reflects all that I am and all I wish to offer in the world – the kind, the fierce, the courageous, the vulnerable, the self-righteous, the compassionate, the empathic, the steel-clad boundaries, etc. etc. etc.

This integration of the Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine and the Love Child produced out of that union is the highest/deepest/most profound/ lesson and truth of every spiritual tradition that exists – whether it be Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, Pagan, Indigenous, etc. etc. etc. As it relates to my own Catholic-Christian tradition, this is the most hidden of all of Jesus’ teachings…

Learn more about Marcy and the Total Transformation Course HERE.

Join Marcy in the Total Transformation Course

Starting October 9, 2018, 2:30-4:30 CST!!

This is an online interactive course

Are you finally ready to be done with all forms of suffering? And are you willing to genuinely heal the fundamental CAUSE of pain, disease, relationship conflict, scarcity and fear of any kind? If you are, this may be the perfect path for you!

Marcy Hauer will be co-facilitating a 12-month online Total Transformation Course journey based on the deeper teachings of A Course in Miracles and The End of Death trilogy by Nouk Sanchez.

A note from Marcy:

HELLO DEAR BROTHERS AND SISTERS,

I am so happy to connect with you. We, together, were created by Holiness Itself. And we are meant to live from this Holiness in relationship to ourselves, each other, our bodies, and everything in this world. No separation between us and therefore no fear of anyone or anything!

Because of What we truly are, because of What we come from, we all desire holy connection and communication, peace, joy and abundance in all facets of our life; and reliance on a Guidance system that knows us intimately and guides us lovingly and certainly. In the spirit of this I would love to join with you to open to our inherent Real/Holy Self and all the implications of That!

In TTC we come together in this humble and courageous pursuit. We question all of our beliefs, judgments, values and feelings. We take the plunge to participate in holy communication with ourselves and each other via the 7 Key Principles: willingness, accountability, defenselessness, radical self-honesty, vulnerability and transparency, trust and gratitude.Through our daily practice of authentic communication and forgiveness/Atonement we are liberated from all that binds us to suffering. We are beings of Love and our purpose is to live from and extend this Love! Only this will bring us total peace and joy.

ACIM came into my life in 1991 shortly after my desperate plea to God (“if He was really out there and could hear me this would be a really good time to show up”) to help me find another way to live as my way did not work. I could no longer live with the excruciating pain of chronic severe anxiety, panic attacks, debilitating fears and depression that held me captive. I knew right from the start ACIM was what I was looking for and slowly very slowly I healed. It wasn’t until I came across Nouk’s books, Take Me To Truth and then The End of Death and attended a couple of Nouk’s workshops that my healing sped up.
Healing greatly accelerated from there by joining TTC. The TTC journey is a very powerful journey of freedom as we return to the shared One Holy Self. For myself, these past 2 1/2 yrs of the TTC journey have been the most miraculous and healing time of my life. One particular big challenge I had in TTC was the immense fear of being in a group and joining live online. It is the great fear of being seen and judged. I am finding this is a shabby belief that keeps me small and lifeless.

The ego is more fully exposed in a group setting and it cannot survive in a group where the intent is to close the gap and return to sanity. The ego is a loveless thought system sustained by fear. It is by the powerful joining of mighty companions that our fears crumble and we are healed together. And by joining together in Absolute Truth and Perfect Love our healing is collectively greatly accelerated and our path is simplified.

My gratitude runs deep for Nouk and Daniel and Nouk’s deeper teachings, Daniel’s vision of TTC and and the abiding love and support of everyone in TTC and beyond. Everyone we encounter and everything we experience is an opportunity to heal, to be restored to our shared Holiness.

Please sincerely consider this transformational journey and please do not let fear stop you!

Lisa and I together with Holy Spirit will host our group. As miracle buddies from the start we have experienced many miracles together. We aim to go all the way, both feet in one canoe as Nouk and Tomas would say! We would love to join with you in this holy journey.

BIG LOVE, MARCY

Temple of the Magdalene Online Community Gatherings

Click on the image to join

The Temple of the Magdalene Online Community is a monthly gathering of women and men who are interested in supporting their journey of self-actualization through the wisdom teachings of Jesus and Mary Magdalene. The wisdom teachings of Jesus and Mary Magdalene are those rooted in love and in support of union – union within ourselves, with the Divine, with each other, and with all of creation.

Through the Temple of the Magdalene online gatherings, participants will cultivate a relationship with the Divine of their own understanding (by whatever name, image, form they wish to give it), come to know themselves, and discover the source of their own truth within. In addition, participants will have an opportunity to connect with women and men of like-mind who have not found fulfillment in institutional religion, but who are seeking a more universal approach to spirituality – one that is “spiritual but not religious” and which supports the development of the only “church” we will ever truly need – the “church” within.

The monthly gathering is FREE (Donations are encouraged. Donate HERE.  ), open to the public and take place via teleconference. The gatherings will consist of:

  • Scripture
  • Reflection
  • Meditation
  • Discussion and Sharing

 

First gathering:

Wednesday, September 26, 2018

Deb has been my yoga teacher for the past 10+ years.  We first met “by chance” at a wellness events for the local Boys & Girls Club where Deb and I were both facilitators.  Deb then invited me to facilitate Spirit Dance at her studio and about  a year later I traded in my YMCA membership for a Yoga membership at Inner Sun.  I am deeply grateful for Deb’s vision and approach to yoga as it is solidly grounded in the ultimate goal of yoga which is spiritual.  Deb’s studio is a warm and welcoming space and over the course of the past 10 years, it has become my “church.”  Deb’s gifts of hospitality and pastoring are visible as she has birthed a yoga space that fosters true community.  I am humbled and honored to have had Deb and her amazing teachers as guides and for the privilege of serving Deb and the members of her studio through my own unique gifts.  It is a true partnership for which I am eternally grateful!  Thank you Deb!

The Mary Magdalene Movie

This past weekend I had an opportunity to view the Mary Magdalene movie starring Rooney Mara and Joachim Phoenix. The movie, Mary Magdalene, has not yet been released in the U.S. as it has been caught up in the Harvey Weinstein sex abuse (#MeToo ) scandal.  Thanks to a resourceful Magdalene sister, however, we were able to procure a copy.  What follows are my thoughts on the film.

First of all, overall, the Mary Magdalene movie, as a film was just ok. I found the portrayal of Jesus strange and disjointed.  On one hand, he came across as a political zealot, on another hand completely unapproachable, and on another hand almost a little nuts.  Perhaps this was the intention of the director to depict a complicated Jesus, but for me personally, it made it difficult for me to care about his character.  The crucifixion was perhaps the most anti-climactic crucifixion I have ever seen portrayed in film.  I really didn’t care about any of the other characters either….except for Mary Magdalene.  Again, perhaps that was the point.

While I have heard mixed reactions to the portrayal of Mary Magdalene in this film, I appreciated how she was depicted. First, she was shown to be a deeply spiritual/inward directed/contemplative and intuitive young woman who found peace in the spiritual practices of her Jewish faith.  Right away the film showed Mary’s ability to hear the voice of her own truth and when the traditions of her culture would have forced her into a marriage she did not feel called to, she “went nuts.”  The breakdown that Mary suffered in the film was not a breakdown at all….but rather a breakthrough.  I thought the film did a terrific job of portraying the symptoms of a spiritual emergence – when our Soul’s calling is in conflict with where we are or what is being forced upon us in our lives.  The “seven demons” of which Mary Magdalene was healed were not demons at all, but the voice of her truth calling her to a different life than what would normally be dictated to a Jewish woman in first century Palestine.  It was Jesus who saw and affirmed the truth that was being called out of Mary and he affirmed and supported her in her truth – defying cultural norms, and even the arguments of his male disciples by welcoming a woman into their company. While this meant a break from Mary’s family, this was what is often demanded when we step away from our cultural norms into the path of our Divinely ordained truth.

As the story continued to unfold, Mary was shown to be THE ONE who got Jesus’ message. She did not look to Jesus as the “savior king” that the disciples sought.  Instead, she longed to know the “kingdom of God” about which Jesus spoke, even asking Jesus, “What does the kingdom feel like?”  Jesus’ heartfelt reply betrayed his own longing to be heard, “No one has ever asked me this.”  It was this connection that bonded Jesus and Mary – a bond I believe to have been profoundly true in real life.

Mary was also shown to be the one who encouraged Jesus to welcome more women into their company. Jesus responded by empowering Mary to call the women forth and minister to them.  Mary is shown in the role of PRIEST by baptizing the women while Jesus baptized the men.

Meet the modern-day Magdalenes HERE.

True to scripture, Mary is shown as being with Jesus at the crucifixion as a source of love and support. She is then shown to be THE ONE to whom Jesus revealed himself at the resurrection.  Mary was ordained by Jesus to tell the other disciples, who did not believe her.

The final scene in the Mary Magdalene movie is ultimately what made the whole movie worthwhile for me. In this scene, Peter argues with Mary about the intent of Jesus’ message – salvation by an outside intercessor or salvation from within.  Mary argued for the latter.  She was told by Peter that she was wrong and the Jesus intended THE MEN to be the rock upon he would build his Church and that Mary was wrong.  She was given the choice to remain and be silent or leave.  She left.  Her final words to Peter say it all:

“I will not remain and be silent. I will be heard.”

Hail Mary for grasping the truth of Jesus’ message, for bringing it into her heart, for embodying that truth and for going forth to share that message with the world.

The kingdom of God is within and THIS is the source of our “salvation.”

“I will not remain and be silent. I will be heard!”

May this be the mantra by which we all live!

Amen! Amen!  Amen!

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.
