Dying and Resurrecting with Mary Magdalene
"Let me show you how to die, and
how to resurrect."
Mary Magdalene's invitation to us.
Welcome to Dying and Resurrecting with Mary Magdalene. We would recommend spending two weeks, or longer, with each video, so you can fully enter the meditations, chants, questions, and contemplations. You may also want to revisit the video during this time as often we hear things not heard on the first viewing.
Please see below suggested reading that will support and expand your experience, a prayer and quotes to contemplate.
We ask that you do not share the recordings, as they are copyrighted, but please feel free to ask people to register for the self-study and receive their own recordings.
This class is a deeply contemplative practice. We will be focusing on our experience in meditation and prayer, plus select sacred texts and quotes, letting them enter us deeply, and we entering them deeply.
The New Divine Feminine by Meghan Don - to help with our mystical dying and our renewed living
The Gospel of Mary Magdalene by Jean Yves-Leloup
The Wheel of Life by Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, a fascinating memoir relating her extraordinary life, which was devoted to Dying & Living! A highly recommended read.
Our Chant: Ya-Ma-Kallah Mashiach (from the Hebrew) = The Anointed Bride who embodies the true feminine nature and is birthing and creating the World to Come
Ya = The smallest, yet greatest, life force of creation. It has created, is creating, and will create The World to Come
Ma = The feminine waters, the cosmic womb
Kallah = Holy Bride
Mashiach = Anointed One
Anointing: As equal armed cross and Circle
Abba - Imma - Yeshua - Kallah - Sophia
Father - Mother - Son - Daughter - Cosmic Wisdom
Here is a prayer and quotes below to contemplate:
Grandmother of Death
May we speak?
I come to you to lay down
All my fears
My fear of leaving this body
Of leaving this small mind
And all its worries way behind
I know they are only temporary
But do I really know this?
Can I mourn their death now?
Even moment to moment?
Maybe then death and I can be friends
Maybe then you and I can be friends
And I will not fear you
But welcome you into my bed
Where you will slay all that needs to be slayed
And resurrect all that needs to breathe again
Give me the sacred breath, grandmother of my soul
And let me rise as a new woman, as a new man,
into unadulterated love. - Meghan Don
“What you say, you say in a body;
you can say nothing outside this body.
You must awaken while in this body, for everything exists in it:
Resurrect in this life.”
~ The Gospel of Philip
“Light and darkness, life and death, right and left, are brothers
and sisters. They are insepArable.”
~ The Gospel of Philip
“The death of what’s dead, is the birth of what’s living.”
