More about Wencke Braathen
Wencke was born and raised in Norway before coming to the US to study at the Maharishi International University in Iowa.
Spending four semesters at a university that focusses on meditation as the background for everything else being taught, with the slogan; “Knowledge is structured in consciousness”, created a foundation for her life.
“Transcendental meditation gives me an expanded awareness and makes it obvious that we are multidimensional beings. From this perspective, I can write the way I do.”
She holds a BA in art history, giving her a door into church history. Like so many others Wencke found that Mary Magdalene, (and her powerful part in the story the western civilization claims to be based on), has been obscured to the obscene and covered in historical dust and from an early age, she claimed that she wanted to tell her story, as soon as she could find out what it was. It was for sure not what the church presented.
Since then, Wencke has spent years of research into Mary Magdalene and her timeframe, read numerous books and traveled across the internet.
Finding geographical points that claimed her footprints, Wencke decided she needed to visit the sites. She traveled in Southern France and Egypt, finding the places she had been. Stone holds consciousness. Stone caves will tell you what’s happened there, if you know how to plug into their message. She brought it all with me back, and started writing.
Before being able to truly understand Wencke had to go through all the stages of womanhood and study them intently. She found Mary Magdalene through her body, not through her mind.
“Your body holds the intuition, your heart holds your emotions, and all womanhood holds the wisdom of the ages. Mary Magdalene reaches you through feelings, through the most refined vibrations of our heart. It takes a while to develop that connection.” It took Wencke thirty years and being the mother of four children.
Wencke is currently writing about druids and Vikings and how they saw the message she left behind. Writing from year 1000, with the Catholic Church as the continuation of the Roman Empire, and the Celtic church of Ireland and England remembering her teachings and educating according to what Jesus and Mary Magdalene taught them.
“It’s disturbing to find out how much her message of self-empowerment has been worked against. We see it in our time as well. Rulers would rather have sad sheep that are easy to control, instead of strong people who are well educated and aware of their individual power.”
Wencke feels it’s important to make people aware that the false humility of the church, the submission to a vengeful god, has nothing to do with what Jesus and Mary Magdalene taught. And it’s not what God needs.
Her book, “Rituals in Sacred Stone”, tells a story of two people who were spiritual technicians. And it encourages us to develop these same abilities, which are available to all of us.
She has also published a book called “Sex on the Altar”, a humorous romp describing how God solves the problem of finding his lost wife using humans to awaken her from her slumber in the center of the earth.
Wencke lives in Chicago enjoying the splendour of Michigan Lake with her husband who takes good care of her.
