Meeting Mary Magdalene

Lauri’s latest book. Buy it Now on Amazon.com.

In 1978, I had my first personal, mystical encounter with the Christ and the Magdalene.  They came to me through the Jesus Christ Superstar soundtrack, where for the first time I realized Jesus’ humanity and that Mary Magdalene played a much larger role in the life and ministry of Jesus than I had previously been led to believe.

While the Magdalene would wait to reveal herself fully, I immediately began having direct experiences of the Christ while in prayer, while attending mass, and through the experiences of my everyday life.  The Jesus that was revealing himself to me was markedly different from the Jesus I had been taught to worship in that he was fully human and directly accessible – meaning there was no need for an intermediary between human beings and Christ, we are able to know him directly through contemplation and prayer and through the circumstances of our daily lives.  Additionally, the Jesus that I was coming to know was not exclusive to those who proclaimed him as their savior.  Instead, this Jesus spoke a universal message of unconditional love that promised to transform every human being on this planet – whether they were Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Pagan, Buddhist, or otherwise.  Jesus’ message was for all of humanity, and you didn’t have to become Christian to find salvation in these truths.

As is common in the revelation of the feminine, the Magdalene came to me subtly at first – initially cloaked within the priestesses of Arthurian legend, Morganna in particular, and then through the other mystical and powerful women I encountered through music, cinema, theatre, art, and literature.  It wasn’t until 1994, while in ministry formation, that I had my first direct experience of the Magdalene.  This experience launched an avalanche of encounters through which I was guided by the Magdalene to learn the hidden truths of the Magdalene’s place within the Jesus story, in the beginning years of the Jesus movement, and how she continues to work on our behalf – helping us to discover,  integrate and embody the Living Teachings of Christ.

The Living Teachings of Christ, as revealed to me through both the Magdalene and the Christ, are those teachings which transcend dogma and doctrine, freeing Jesus’ teachings to adapt to an ever-changing world.  Not exclusive or limited to a specific belief system, the Living Teachings of Christ are universal in their appeal, revealing truth to every human being, no matter where they are in their journey and regardless of their specific belief system.  In a world that has become increasingly separated by belief, the unveiling of these teachings could not be more timely.

The Living Teachings of Christ, as revealed through both Jesus and Mary (called Magdalene) spring forth out of one foundational truth:

The Truth of Oneness

This is the truth that Jesus came to know within himself, and the truth he sought to teach his disciples.  Mary, called Magdalene, fully integrated and embodied this truth – the truth that we are all One – within ourselves, with each other, with all of creation and with God. Jesus and Mary experienced this Oneness as unconditional love.  This is the truth that promises to heal the fear and perceived separation that is the cause of suffering in the human condition, and to restore us to our original nature as LOVE.

  1. Now, THIS….what you write here about your own experience … I am drawn to. Other posts, particularly the message from the Magdalene in which she uses the term “programming,” made me skeptical. Relating your own personal inner history rings with more authenticity and is very similar to my own experience. It is that message… your own experience without hype or sensationalism … that will appeal to grounded, serious, and authentic followers of Christ. Thank you for this…your witness as well as your gifts. I look forward to reading your book.

    • Hi Kitsy,
      Thank you for your feedback. I’m glad these words are providing what you need to move beyond skepticism to openness. I hope you enjoy the book and find it meaningful. If you have not yet, you might also enjoy reading my novel about Mary Magdalene, “Song of the Beloved.”
