MAGDALENA - Mother, Teacher, Whore.  


back to Upcoming Offerings

Program

Mary Magdalene historically has been depicted as a prostitute in early Christianity and her archetypal gifts of intuition, devotion and leadership were obscured through the patriarchal denial and denigration of the sacred feminine. Mary Magdalene represents aspects of the sacred feminine that we often deny as a result of the deep yearnings we feel; our connection to the divine source that resides within us. Mary speaks of surrender and softness; she reminds us of the womb mysteries, of spirals and labyrinths. 

The mystery of the divine feminine spark speaks to us from within Mary Magdalene’s unfolding story. You can feel her intimately in the grottos, forests and chapels of southern France. She is not in a distant, intangible heaven, but a presence that is here with us, pleading for our response. We have forgotten Her just as we have forgotten so much of what is sacred. And now She needs to be known again, not just as a spiritual metaphor, but as something that belongs to us in our bones, our blood, our every breath. She can help us to remember who we really are.

Through her teachings we uncover devotion, to ourselves, to each other, to the purity of love. 

As women only when we can honour the sacred feminine within ourselves and reinstate the feminine archetypes through new mythologies and stories... only when we can once again remember the perfection of our womanhood, the blessings of our bodies, cycles, blood and sexuality... only when we heal our relationships with our mothers, grandmothers and ancestral lineages... only when we acknowledge our role in disempowering the sisterhood through competition and jealousy.. only then can we create change in this world. 

"As the Sacred Feminine arises within us, we honour the Sacred Feminine in all things and use our energy to protect from abuse and stand for justice." Blessings From Mary

From this place we develop compassion for our brothers who are also hurting and heal the schism between the sacred masculine and feminine to evoke the sacrament of Hieros Gamos, the sacred marriage as we move from the individual, through relationship and the group until we are unified or married to all aspects of divinity.


Magdalena is a journey for women and female identified people to explore, heal and transform their relationship with their own womanhood, their lineage and sisterhood. From this place we will explore our inner beloved and our sacred divinity through the mysteries of the labyrinth. Magdalena is a weekend to deeply honour the life of Mary Magdalene, to pause, reflect and reinstate her teachings and gifts for the world. 

If you feel fragmented as a woman
Wearing different masks at different times
If you feel stretched between many things
mother, lover, seeker, pleaser...
If you want to feel the fullness of your womanhood
at ease in your sexuality, power and heart.
Magdalene calls you.

We will rewrite her story. 

We will rewrite yours.
