MARY MAGDALENE REVEALED RETREAT
August 16th - 18, 2019
Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, New York
Reveal the radical love and humanity within you from The Gospel of Mary Magdalene with Meggan Watterson.
A gospel, as old and authentic as any of the gospels that now comprise the Christian Bible, was buried deep in the Egyptian desert after a 4th-century effort to have all copies destroyed. Because it was hidden away, we still have the only gospel written in the name of a woman: The Gospel of Mary Magdalene.
Mary’s gospel tells a different love story from the one we’ve come to refer to as Christianity. It says we are not sinful; we are not to feel ashamed for being human. Our purpose is to be fully human, “true human beings.” All we need to do is to turn inward and meditate, like Mary Magdalene, in the way her gospel directs.
Through lecture, discussion, Soul-Voice Meditation, and exercises, we learn about Mary Magdalene as a figure of spiritual authority in the early Christian movement. We discover why her gospel was excluded from the current form of the New Testament, and explore the secret teachings Christ gave to her.
We return home with a deeper understanding of why the Gospel of Mary is so relevant at this point in time.
MARY MAGDALENE REVEALED
July 31st 2019 - 7pm
MNDFL - Williamsburg Brooklyn
Join Harvard-trained feminist theologian and author Meggan Watterson for a lively talk + guided soul-voice meditation based on her new book Mary Magdalene Revealed. We'll discuss the form of meditation that has been a part of the Christian tradition since at least as early as the 4th century, and the connection it has to the Gospel of Mary Magdalene. We'll focus on the secret teachings Mary's gospel alone reveals, and what it means for us now to put those teachings into practice.
Tickets are limited + include a signed copy of Mary Magdalene Revealed
