The Secret Teachings of Mary Magdalene

The Secret Magdalene Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Secret Teachings of Mary Magdalene by Clare Nahmad,Margaret Bailey Book Summary:

Claire Nahmad and Margaret Bailey re-evaluate the significance of Mary Magdalene and cast her in an entirely new light. They have discovered that not only was she wife to Jesus Christ and mother to his child, but she was his spiritual equal and their partnership exemplified the crucial balance of male and female in spiritual and worldly life. Jesus gave her the title of Magdalene which means both tower and magnificent, because he recognized her as his consort and co-teacher. However, Mary's role was re-written by the early church and it is only now that her secret teachings can be made known - thanks to the revelation to the authors of the lost verses of The Gospel of Mary, through their skills of inner listening. Her teachings are not religious in the narrow sense, they are spiritual and accessible to everyone. They not only reveal the hidden key to unlocking the powers of the soul, which is the next stage of development for humanity, but also signal the beginning of a new age in which the sacred feminine assumes its rightful place.

Jesus Mary Joseph

The Secret Magdalene Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Jesus Mary Joseph by Ariadne Green Book Summary:

It is a well-known fact that in the late 6th century Pope Gregory shaped the image of the Goddess in the Gospels, Mary Magdalene, into a penitent adulteress and prostitute-labels more recently abandoned in favor of "devoted follower" and even "Apostle to the Apostles." Conversely, Jesus' image and character were refashioned into a divinely born hero archetype and the body of his Gnostic wisdom teachings redacted and corrupted to support the personification of a Messiah and world redeemer who would fulfill an ancient prophesy and proclaim himself "the way" to salvation. If not accurate, then what was Jesus and Mary Magdalene's true legacy? Ariadne Green offers up the image of Divine Complements who married, had children and whose lives and mission together spanned over sixty years. She traces their journey from Judea and Galilee to the Nile Delta in Egypt, after an aborted crucifixion, and then onto Gaul and Great Britain as the carriers of the Grail. The book reveals a secret identity for Jesus, one known by the Knights Templar and a group of Cistercian monks, who hid clues to a legacy of secrets in La Queste Del Saint Graal. We discover Jesus' authentic teachings survived and became the tenets of Valentinian Gnostics who disseminated them in secret and initiated disciples into a profound mystery-the mystery of the 'bridal chamber'.

ORMUS - The Secret Alchemy of Mary Magdalene Revealed [A]

The Secret Magdalene Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

ORMUS - The Secret Alchemy of Mary Magdalene Revealed [A] by William Hearth,Henry Alfred Goolsbee Book Summary:

[Volume 1] "Hearth wastes no time getting straight to the heart of the matter: a compelling introductory work to his new novel "ORMUS The Secret Alchemy of Mary Magdalene" "A MUST READ for anyone interested in the secret truth behind Mary Magdalene, TEMPLAR executions, ESSENE mystery schools; the persecutions of Magdalene's family and her constituency." Hearth speculates that, "At a time when ancient vegetarian philosophies clashed with the Judaic-temple practice of slaughtering innocent animals for blood sacrifice-" one question in particular begs an answer: "What if the ebionites and essenes were actually vegetarians? Their Way of Life and dietary practices would have caused them to be labeled as heretics and outcasts throughout Judean society as being Blasphemous... A crime punishable by death," whereas these days, such knowledge might elicit a more conscious, enlightened Way of Life. essene.net Hearth is publicizing the arrival of the books in a novel way. He has recently completed a 40-day vegan juice-fast designed to demonstrate that these ancient ideals, remain valid, as a way forward today, and are applicable in averting imminent environmental collapse. Hearth is planning a follow-up fast of 60-120 days, commencing mid to late November 2011. The percentage of ORMUS found in the human body varies greatly depending on the dietary practices of the individual. Hence fasting is always mentioned in all texts relating to holy men and women. The Tara, Dakini, Durgee, the Black Madonna, and MahaKala all representative of processes involved in transfiguration of Tantric yogis and yoginis. The objective is to arrange the human laboratory in such a way as to achieve an ORMUS-laden critical-mass, within a healthy body; the laboratory of the human body, being representative of the true alchemist's crucible. pH swings in the process of transmuting "lead into gold" were always represented as colorations of an elixir: Red Dragon, Green Dragon, Blue Body of Krishna, Green Tara, Golden Flower, and of course the White-Light Body of the Christ. One day some of us will live in the Light. We will eat, drink and breath the Light. Like the lowly worm, having woven a platinum-silky cocoon, eventually emerges as a beautiful butterfly; so too will we, one day, live, breath and glide through the Light. Some creatures live in water; while others transitioned to an amphibious existence; others migrated successfully to a land-based home; others fly through the air with the greatest of ease. "A NO NONSENSE primer for those awaiting the greatly anticipated novel from newly acclaimed author William Hearth" "Was JUDAS a favorite disciple of Mary's? Was he framed by Saul of Tarsus?" "The Secret Alchemy of Mary Magdalene will enthrall, educate; elucidate." "If you love Mary Magdalene; everything she stands for, this is a must-read, must-own" Mary Magdalene; Cleopatra's MFKTZ-ORMUS: What is it?

Magdalene Mysteries

The Secret Magdalene Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Magdalene Mysteries by Seren Bertrand,Azra Bertrand Book Summary:

Discover the Womb Rites and initiatory magic of Mary Magdalene, who was revered as a Priestess and human embodiment of the Goddess • Reveals how Mary Magdalene was a sacred priestess of the ancient Womb Mysteries, connected to moon wisdom, sacred harlot archetypes, and goddesses in many traditions, including Sophia, Isis, Inanna, Asherah, Lilith, Jezebel, and Witches • Explains how the Magdalene Mysteries have been encoded in Gnostic texts, sacred art, and literature and unveils the secret Grail heresy of the Ghent Altarpiece • Offers rituals and practices to initiate you into the Womb magic of the ancient priestesses and access deeper dimensions of sexuality and feminine power A sacred priestess of the ancient Womb Rites, Mary Magdalene was at the center of a great and enduring Mystery tradition, one that touched on a stream of perennial spiritual wisdom as old as humanity. Worshipped as the human embodiment of the Goddess, the earthly Sophia, her womb was the spiritual luminatrix that anointed and empowered Jesus, transforming him into the Christ. As a priestess of the Goddess, Mary Magdalene knew how to embody the light and the dark, how to harness the magic potency of sacred sexual energy, and how to cleanse, awaken, and resurrect the soul. Yet, even though she sparked the creation of a worldwide religion, her story and teachings have been forgotten. Unveiling the lost left-hand path of the Magdalene, the Feminine Christ, authors Seren and Azra Bertrand explore how this underground stream of knowledge has been carried forward over the millennia through an unbroken lineage of Womb Shamans, Priestesses, Oracles, and Medicine Women. They explain how the Magdalene Mysteries, symbolized by the Rose, have been encoded in Gnostic codices and gospels and in the highest art, literature, and architecture of many ages, including most significantly the Ghent Altarpiece. They examine Mary Magdalene’s connection to moon wisdom, sacred harlot archetypes, and goddesses in many traditions, including Isis, Inanna, Asherah, Lilith, and Jezebel, and look at shamanic, tantric, and Cathar expressions of sacred feminine mysteries as well as the Witch and Templar roots of Robin Hood and Maid Marian. In this revelatory and magical text on the lost feminine mystery traditions of Mary Magdalene and the lineage of Sophia, the authors present encompassing theological, historical, mythological, and archetypal wisdom, with rituals and practices to initiate you into the Womb magic of the ancient priestesses and the path of the wild feminine.

Magdalena, la Mujer Que Camina Con Jesus

The Secret Magdalene Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Magdalena, la Mujer Que Camina Con Jesus by Ki Longfellow Book Summary:

Poderosa evocacion de una Maria Magdalena que fue, a su vez, filosofa, viajante, maestra y profeta. Esta Magdalena fue mas que una esposa, mas que la seguidora preferida, mas aun que la Amada Discipula. Mariamne Magdal-eder entendio el Todo. "Saber el Todo" es el centro mismo de las ensenanzas Gnosticas de Cristo. Fue "la revelacion del Senor" que cego al Apostol Pablo en el camino a Damascos. El propio corazon de los primeros anos de la Cristiandad. Aun latiendo, Gnosis o 'sabiduria' fue arrancada del cuerpo de la Iglesia hace mas de 1,600 anos. Pero con el descubrimiento en 1945 de los codices de Nag Hammadi, quiza los ultimos en su clase, tanto Gnosis como La Magdalena han vuelto a nosotros trayendo sabiduria y esperanza en estos dificiles y confusos tiempos. Magdalena, la mujer que camina con Jesus consiste no solamente en una laboriosa investigacion que refleja el retrato de una gran mujer con una inteligencia que fue mas alla de su epoca. Es el retrato de la busqueda del Gnosis, la experiencia directa de Dios en el individuo.

Houdini Heart by Ki Longfellow Book Summary:

HOUDINI HEART harkens back to the masters of suspenseful supernatural horror: Poe, Lovecraft, Shirley Jackson, but speaks with a wholly fresh voice. Once caught in its pages, there's no escaping Longfellow's terrible tale. Weeks ago, she was one of Hollywood's biggest writers, wed to one of its greatest stars. The doting mother of their golden child. But now? She's alone, tortured by a horrifying secret no woman could bear. Pursued by those she can't outrun, anguished by a guilt she can't endure, and driven close to madness, she flees to the one place she's ever called home: a small town in Vermont where River House still stands. To a child, the splendid hotel was mysterious and magical and all its glamorous guests knew delicious secrets. Cocooned in its walls, she will write one last book. Her atonement? Or her suicide note? But life is never as you dream it, and River House isn't what she'd always imagined it was. Intense, literary, and harrowing, Houdini Heart is a tale of bone-chilling horror, emotional torment, and psychological terror. Gripped by River House, trapped in an aging hotel of mirrors only Houdini could escape, how much can haunt a mind before it too is only a thing once imagined? "A haunting and disturbing journey through the psyche."-Erika Mailman, Author of "The Witch's Trinity"

Mary Magdalene's Dreaming

The Secret Magdalene Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Mary Magdalene's Dreaming by Steven Strong,Evan Strong Book Summary:

In Mary Magdalene's Dreaming Steven Strong and Evan Strong continue their esoteric journey tracing the origins of religion that they began their first book, Constructing A New World Map. Strong and Strong examine the Gnostic Scriptures detailing the words and deeds of Mary and Jesus recently found at Nag Hammadi. They were, as Jesus stated in the Gospel of Thomas, custodians of a secret tradition. Jesus insisted he is but the caretaker of a "bubbling spring that I have tended". The authors further assert their belief that this "bubbling spring" is identical to the "secret place" aboriginal elder, Bill Neidjie, urges all to discover and it is their contention that a closer inspection of the ancient mystical spring Jesus and Mary accessed is evident in many Gnostic texts. The secret knowledge Mary and Jesus preached, stripped of cultural and geographic differences, is undoubtedly the purest replication of the Dreaming since the first mariners were banished from Australia.

The Four Gospels of Jesus the Christ

The Secret Magdalene Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Four Gospels of Jesus the Christ by Robert Luthmers Book Summary:

The purpose of this book is to feature the Gospels of Jesus the Christ in an authentic canon apart from the patriarchal language framework of the New Testament. By that I mean that the gospels have been translated into a language framework that clarifies the truth of the Gospels by eliminating the bias and obscurities of patriarchy, gender, anti-Semitism and the sixteenth century’s distortions inherent in King James I’s promotion of the divine right of kings. From the discoveries and research over the last fifty years I have been inspired by the Gospel of Mary, the Gospel of Thomas, and writings on the Aramaic basis of the Gospels where the authentic voice of Jesus is made accessible.

Secrets of Mary Magdalene

Secrets of Mary Magdalene by Dan Burstein Book Summary:

A dazzling look at the most elusive figure in Christ's life Mary Magdalene was a key figure in Christ's life.

In SECRETS OF MARY MAGDALENE, Dan Burstein explodes the myths and analyses who Mary Magdalene was, the true nature of her relationship with Christ and her role in the Christian faith.

The Magdalene Legacy by Laurence Gardner Book Summary:

Bestselling author Laurence Gardner takes on the legacy of Mary Magdalene in this new collection of historical detective work and hidden mysteries. Gardner reveals sensational new information from the Vatican and monastic archives that sheds light on the intimate relationship and secret marriage between Mary Magdalene and Jesus, describing Magdalene as a close companion and financial sponsor to Jesus, and not merely a repentant prostitute, as the Church portrayed her. Addressing the vast discrepancy between scripture and dogma, Gardner draws on the forbidden texts that were edited from the Bible, and exposes the true status of Mary among the Apostles. Gardner takes on the controversial significance of why the Renaissance Church censored portrayals of the Magdalene, and reveals the truth about the enigmatic Order of the Templars and the underground stream that protected the messianic heritage.--From publisher description.

Why Jesus Didn't Marry Mary Magdalene

The Secret Magdalene Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Why Jesus Didn't Marry Mary Magdalene by John Van Schaik Book Summary:

Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code draws on ideas from the history of Christianity and presents scenarios that the established Church has found difficult to quash. One such theory is that Jesus married Mary Magdalene -- an idea that has caught the popular imagination worldwide.Where the Church has tried simply to dismiss the question, this concise and fascinating book addresses it head-on and seriously considers all the evidence. John van Schaik uses his vast expertise and knowledge of esoteric Christianity to explore Christian history and the secret practices of the time of Jesus. To the likely disappointment of conspiracy theorists, he concludes firmly that Jesus and Mary Magdalene were not a couple. This book is an antidote to the vague theories and fantastic claims that have long surrounded the question of the relationship between Jesus and Mary Magdalene.

Evil Gods and Reckless Saviours

The Secret Magdalene Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Evil Gods and Reckless Saviours by Timo Eskola Book Summary:

Late twentieth-century Jesus novels carve out a completely new picture of Jesus. Those written by Norman Mailer, Jose Saramago, Michèle Roberts, Marianne Fredriksson, and Ki Longfellow, among others, provide inversive revisions of the canonical Gospels. Their adaptations often turn into a critique of the whole of Christian history. The contrast novels investigated in this study end up with appropriations that are based on prototypical rewriting. They aim at the rehabilitation of Judas, and some of them make Mary Magdalene the key figure of Christianity. Saramago describes God as a bloodthirsty tyrant, and Mailer makes God battle the devil in a Manichaen sense as with an equal. The main result of this intertextual analysis is that these authors have adopted Nietzschean ideas in their writing. An attack on the so-called biblical slave morality and violent concept of God deprives Jesus of his Jewish messianic identity, makes Old Testament law a contradiction of life, calls sacrificial soteriology a violent paradigm supporting oppression, and presents God as a cruel monster. As a result, Jewish faith appears in a negative light. Apparently, Western culture still harbours anti-Judaic attitudes, albeit hidden beneath sentiments of equality and tolerance. Timo Eskola skillfully shows that despite the evident post-Holocaust consciousness present in the novels, they actually adopt an arrogant and ironic refutation of Jewish beliefs and Old Testament faith.
