Magdalene Priest and Priestess Training

The Order of the Magdalene provides priestess and priest training for all levels of membership. Training is available through Lauri Ann Lumby, OM, MATS, founder of the Order and is accomplished online through the Mystery School of the Goddess. 


Being a priestess or priest of the Magdalene is about spreading the message of Mary’s true role in Jesus’ life and in the continuation of his work, but more importantly, it is about restoring the world to its original nature as LOVE.  As was true of Jesus’ disciples, priests and priestesses of the Magdalene fulfill this mission in their own unique way, relevant to their own unique giftedness and the way they are called to share these gifts in the world in service to LOVE.  The ways in which current Magdalene priest/esses are living out their call includes:

  • Counselors and Therapists
  • Holistic Healthcare providers
  • Artists
  • Writers
  • Wives and Mothers/Husbands and Fathers
  • Teachers
  • Professors
  • Philanthropists
  • Public Speakers
  • Shamanic Practitioners
  • Ordained Ministers and Officiants
  • Spiritual Directors
  • Massage Therapists
  • Hands-on Healers/Reiki/Acupressure/Healing Touch Therapy
  • Yoga Teachers
  • Meditation Teachers
  • Medical Doctors
  • Business Owners

It is likely that if you are exploring Magdalene Priest/ess Training you were raised in a Christian household, but have sense stepped away from “the Church” because you found the institutional Church didn’t resonate with your own inner truth in some significant way.

  • Perhaps you grew tired of the discrimination against women in many institutional churches.
  • Maybe you disagreed with some of the Church doctrine.
  • Perhaps you felt ostracized or judged in some way because of your own truth or lifestyle choices.
  • Maybe you heard a call to “the priesthood” that was not honored by the institution in which you were raised.
  • Maybe you longed for a more feminine, more whole experience of the Divine that was lacking in the Institutional Church.
  • Perhaps the Jesus you knew differed markedly from the Jesus professed at the pulpit or in the Creed of the Church.
  • Maybe you are still part of the Institutional Church, but long for a way to be in community with others who long for a more whole image of the Divine which honors both the masculine and the feminine (and everything in between), and which seeks to further Jesus’ message of love from a place of unity instead of the separation favored in so many institutions.

Whatever brought you here, it is the Magdalene with her Beloved, Christ that has led you here – a leading that you have known deep in your heart and which has hounded you, perhaps all the days of your life!
