About this course

Order of Melchizedek Alchemist Training FREE Preview Course

Order of Melchizedek Alchemist Training

Two-Year Program

Ritual, divination, shamanism, healing, and the Kabbalah for the purpose of attaining Divine Union.


The Order of Melchizedek, created and facilitated by Lauri Ann Lumby, OM, OPM, MATS, is a two-year training program with an emphasis on ritual, divination, shamanic practices, healing and in-depth study of the Kabbalah.  Through knowledge and practice, you will learn and discover the true origins and purpose of magic - which is to achieve Divine Union.  When we, like the High Priest of Salem, Jesus and Mary Magdalene, achieve this state of Union, we become a vessel through which the loving nature of the Divine can be made manifest in our world, proving the alchemical adage, “As above, so below.” 

In this FREE preview course, you will have an opportunity to sample one lesson from each of the five courses which make up this training.

The program also includes six one-on-one mentoring sessions with program creator and facilitator, Lauri Ann Lumby.


The Order of Melchizedek training is highly transformational, supporting you in exorcising the fears, false perceptions and ego attachments that might otherwise prevent you from knowing Union, and empowering you with knowledge and skills which will support you in understanding the truest purpose of magic – to be a vessel through which the Divine vision of Love can be made manifest both in your own life and in the world around you.
