Mary Magdalene… the Beloved, Priestess, flesh and blood woman, daughter, archetype, spiritual teacher, and the beloved companion of the Prince of Love.

Mary Magdalene… conduit of this miraculous love rippling through time and space; tickling, healing, transforming countless hearts, rising as a longing in the night for meaning, for mystery; as a call to shake off the masks, shackles of division, and return to union; as a sense, an intuition, a holy dream, of a world more true and beautiful.

 

And right here,
breathing in and out
at the pulsating edge

 

where the Universal Source
becomes Woman

and Woman
becomes Universal Source

the lineage is alive

 

a blossoming so
unfathomable splendorous
yet utterly intimate

 

so cosmic
and yet so personal

 

holiness embodied
through your
perfectly imperfect
life.

 

July 22, on Mary Magdalene Feast Day, we will gather for a ritual retreat to feed and honor her Lineage of Love, and how it lives and blossoms in each one of us.

We will rest, pray, and dive deep into practices and rituals to restore ourselves in the primordial trust and love of Source.

Inspired by teachings from the Gospel of the Beloved Companion, we will follow in Mary Magdalene’s footsteps as she awakens the Tree of Life Within, and walks through several gates of profound spiritual transformation.

We welcome you sister, to a temple dedicated to the Priestess of Love,
and to the awakening of her wisdom within us.

 

It was such a beautiful, balanced experience between practicing and experiencing the feminine work and to take in information on the intellectual level. My wakeup call during the retreat was to understand my deep need to create a feminine basecamp in my daily life, and now I have the tools to manifest it. Thank you from the deepest of my heart!

My heart overflows with love for all the sisters journeying here. I feel like I’ve found home ‘within’. I am no longer running from my deep emotions and I embrace my humanity and allow spirit to be within me, not something I escape to. I now know I can be the deeply feeling woman I am and own every part of me; this is a gift beyond words. I humbly bow with joy in my heart. I am here, my heart is open.

Maria Magdalena
I see you walking slowly,
wrapped in the soft peach colored  

afternoon light,
the land is hot and dry under your feet.

This is the piece of earth that you call home,
you know this land intimately as a mother.


Your hips feel warm and tingling,
an inward smile radiates through them,
reaching me through the mirage of time.


Like a mirror he has arrived,
the Beloved, yourself.
His Presence, his warmth,
his unwavering vast love.


Yes.


You recognize in him
your own splendorous heart
and the Love
that we all are made of.


Magdalena, Mygdala, Miriam,

Sister on the Path,
thank you for bringing us all
into this splendorous love,

and into the circle

once again.

We are ready,

take us all the way

in.

Chameli is gifted as a guide. She is amazingly deep and knowledgeable, spot-on with seeing the ways we get caught in our minds and able to bring humor when we get too serious about our practices.

Like everything Awakening Women offers, we are encouraged to make the opportunity experiential and personal. There are no “wrong ways”. This is the beauty of the experience. We can BE where we are, and yet feel the inspiration of others, without the need to compare or judge ourselves.

Lost for words. Resting in a sense of deep peace and tiredness today, tears, sorrow and heaviness seeping out of me at the end of this beautiful retreat. Thank you all dear sisters for your presence and honesty. Thank your dear Chameli for your generous teachings and love. I bow. So humbled and so full of gratitude. I feel I hardly know you and yet I know you deeply. Hreem! Jai Jai Ma.
