Magdalene Priestess Training integrates specific tools and practices of Western Psychology with those of Western Spirituality, resulting in a powerful process through which participants are supported in becoming self-actualized and are then empowered to share their unique giftedness in service to the betterment of the world.

The Order of the Magdalene provides priestess and priest training for all levels of membership. Training is available through Lauri Ann Lumby, OM, MATS, founder of the Order and is accomplished online through the Mystery School of the Goddess. 


Specific Tools used in Magdalene Priestess Training:

  • Western, Eastern and Indigenous Mindfulness, Contemplation and Journey practices
  • The Spiritual Exercises and Rules of Discernment of St. Ignatius
  • Creativity Practices
  • The Enneagram Temperament Tool
  • The Spiritual/Personal Gifts Inventory
  • The Authentic Freedom™ protocol

From Western Psychology, Magdalene Priestess Training draws from:

  • Carl Jung’s creative imagination, archetype and shadow work
  • Abraham Maslow’s hierarchy of needs and theories of self-actualization
  • The humanistic theories and creativity practices of Carl and Natalie Rogers
  • The stages of spiritual development of James Fowler and John Westerhoff
  • Bill Plotkin’s development of the human Soul

From Western Spirituality, The Magdalene Priestess Training has its roots in the original teachings of Jesus* which Mary, called Magdalene fully understood and which were then formalized into the meditation, contemplation and service practices of Western Monasticism, specifically those favored in Benedictine, Franciscan, and Ignatian spirituality.

All courses are based upon the foundation of sound psycho-spiritual formation, rooted in a gnostic/experiential/mystical approach to scripture, freeing the participant to transcend religious dogma, thereby discovering the hidden wisdom that leads us all toward unity and oneness – the Oneness that Jesus came to know and which he attempted to teach his disciples. Mary Magdalene is recognized as the one who most fully understood and received his teachings. The Order of the Magdalene Priestess Training empowers participants to know themselves – discovering their own unique giftedness and how they are called to share these gifts for the sake of their own fulfillment and in service to the betterment of the world.



Scripture Disclaimer:  You will notice that scripture plays a predominant role in my writing and in most of my local and online courses.  Please note that my approach to scripture is unlike any you have likely experienced before!  I do not approach scripture from a dogmatic or doctrinal perspective.  Neither do I use it as a way to instill fear or manipulate specific actions or behaviors.  Instead, I approach scripture as the ancients did – as a collection of stories which have the opportunity to reflect back to us aspects of ourselves.  In this way, scripture becomes a vehicle through which our highest self can speak to us – providing guidance, support, inspiration, nourishment and even healing.  When we pierce through the veil of other people’s interpretations and allow the Divine to speak to us personally and directly through these ancient texts, we discover the transformational power of The Word as it was originally intended – as a tool to guide and sustain us on the path of love.
