About this course
Mary, called Magdalene achieved the goal of the human experience—to become both fully human and fully divine. In doing so, Mary embodied the Divine Feminine and the Divine Masculine in perfect harmony and it was through this integration that she was able to grasp Jesus’ original teachings of compassion and love and bring them forward into the world.
2000 years ago, the world was not ready for her teachings, but today we are. Join us as we explore the deeper and hidden truths about Mary Magdalene revealed during her time with Jesus: her roles as student, initiate, co-equal partner, wife, facilitator and witness to the resurrection, and the one sent to continue Jesus’ mission of being love in the world.
This Course includes the Magdalene Activation and concludes with the Magdalene ordination through which you are empowered, through your own unique gifts and passions to fulfill the mission of LOVE in the world.
Those who have completed the course will be accepted into The Order of the Magdalene and will have FREE access to the "secret" Order of the Magdalene Facebook community, and will discounts on other Temple services (weekly service, empowerment newsletter, one-on-one mentoring with Lauri Ann Lumby).

Magdalene Priestess Training Testimonials
Honouring and living in the energy of the Divine Feminine is what many women (and men) seek these days. This is certainly what I was looking for when I came across Lauri’s website and her course on training to be a Magdalene Priestess. I particularly wanted to learn more about the Mary portrayed in the Bible, but without the religious dogma.
And this is where Lauri has presented a series of workshops that have captivated me for the last 8 months. It is a safe environment where I can release my internal struggles whilst Lauri supports and guides me with compassion and a deep knowing of exactly what I need on my journey to becoming an enlightenment woman and Priestess.

The Magdalene Priestess training program has enabled me to understand myself through the eyes of the Magdalene energy. To see my magic. My gifts that I always knew where there, but could never own them.
Through the program I feel I can share this gifts with others to help heal and support through a Divine Love and understanding that we are all one. Allowing each of us to share our uniqueness and giftedness, and give back to the Divine Universe, and the Divine in all us. "

I have found all the levels and layers of the Priestess training to be deep and truly helpful in my life long search for growth and connection with the Source. It has taught me to listen to my inner awareness and affirmed universal truths in beautiful ,poetic ways. I am grateful for this and having Lauri's feedback on personal issues when working on the classes. I'd highly recommend these classes to anyone seeking a depth and inner awareness to enhance their lives and find meaning in a difficult world. Thank you.
Over the past several years, I did so much spiritual research that I literally researched myself into a “Dark Night of the Soul.” Just recently, for the first time, I prayed to my women ancestors for direction and within days I was led to Lauri Ann Lumby’s ‘Temple of the Magdalene Priestess Training Program.’ This training is one of the best gifts I have ever given myself! It has presented me with a new direction in life, opened new doors of spiritual thought and ways of being for me, and reconnected me not only with the Divine itself, but the Divine within my OWN SELF as well.
And Lauri is a true “kindred spirit.” She is encouraging and completely genuine, and offers personal feedback through the online classroom to each and every one of her students, as well as privately via personal sessions. She is a true mentor. I truly mean all of these words from my heart."

The Magdalene Priestess Training was life changing for me. After having Mary come to me in a shamanic vision six months prior I had begun to explore her world intensely, finally coming across this wonderful experience. The training was rich, filled with love, challenging and insightful and I would recommend it to anyone wanting to walk a path with Mary Magdalene as a modern woman or Priestess.

I’m very grateful first off to know Lauri for at least a decade. I have had the privilege of taking all of her courses. The Magdalene Priestess course solidified an anointing into a higher ideation of woman elevated to priestess, goddess and queen. Mary Magdalene has been forgotten, shamed and misrepresented for millennia and it is time to receive the energy, purity and strength of this mystical woman’s desire - all she embodied and claimed - the truth of who she was and who you are. I highly recommend this course as well as any of Lauri’s other work or books.

The Magdalene Priestess Training has been life-changing for me! This training has helped me change my perspective on things happening in my life and how I can discern my gifts and live my most authentic life. Her classes are so empowering to women in a world where we are taught to keep our heads down and our feelings to ourselves. Honestly one of the very best things I have ever done for myself!
As a business owner, nutrition counselor, and and thought leader in the health care field, I chose to take the Magdalene Priestess Training with Lauri Lumby. I am always interested in learning how to become the best version of myself, and also empower those around me to do the same - to use one's gifts and express them without regret! I've found that on this journey, taking a deeper look at my calling in life and god-given gifts has allowed me to thrive in areas that feel natural to me. Never did I imagine that someday I would be a business owner, boss, speaker, writer, and figure of influence in the community. With that being said, taking care of oneself in order to succeed at those things is key. Lauri has taught me to practice self care, claim my needs and boundaries in life, and it is through her course that I have grasped a better understand of who I am. Knowing my gifts and utilizing what's unique about myself is very freeing and empowering. And being able to share that love and message with those around me in my professional and personal life is an honor. There's no need to compare when you know who you, what you bring to this world, and love yourself completely. Thank you, Lauri!
