The Magdalene Voices
Mariaestela in Sacred Conversation with Author Margaret Starbird.
Margaret Starbird and her profound body of work is like a beacon of light, not only letting us know that there is another side to the stories we have been told for centuries, but provides us with all of the clues so that we might see for ourselves and make our own conclusions.
Having spent years of extensive research she gives us the tools enabling us to see what has been hidden in plain sight.
She, like you and I, stand upon the shoulders of our foremothers and sisters, without whom none of what we create would have been created.
She, like you and I form part of the ever expanding circle of Source.
In this episode you will hear Margaret share from her treasure trove of wisdom and knowledge as we talk about:
- How Margaret first became interested in the search for the Holy Grail and reclaiming the “Sacred Feminine” in Christianity.
- What lies at the basis of the belief that Yeshua and Mary Magdalene may have been married and had a child.
- Where the title “the Magdalene” came from.
- How the ancient cults of “Sacred Marriage” is related to the story of Mary Magdalene and Yeshua.
- What happened to Mary Magdalene after the Crucifixion.
- Why this truth the “Sacred Union” at the heart of Christianity was lost.
- How the information about the Sacred Marriage in Christianity managed to survive.
- What Leonardo Da Vinci’s painting “The Last Supper” have to do with the suppressed tradition about Mary Magdalene as the “Lost Bride”.
- How the very first heresy was the denial of the Bride.
- Why Margaret believes that the Passion of the Christ does not begin at Gethsemane or the Last Supper but at the beginning of the week with the anointing of Jesus.
- How synchronicities played an important part of Margarets path.
- How Mary Magdalene & Yeshua are the archetypes for the union of flesh and divinity – as are you.
- – and much, much more…
