Mary Magdalene ~ Open to the Beloved Companion and the Tree of Life Within

with Chameli Ardagh & Awakening Women Team


This is the little piece of earth that you call home, you know this land intimately as a mother. Your hips feel warm and tingling, there is an inward smile radiating through them, reaching me through the mirage of time. Like a mirror He has arrived, your Beloved, yourself.
His Presence, His warmth, His unwavering vast love. Yes.


You recognized in Him your own splendorous heart,

Magdalena, Mygdala, Miriam, Yogini Sister.

You once inhaled the scent of His skin, our Brother of Love,

we know you can lead us into the very depth of the love He embodied.

We are ready, take us all the way.

Our guide in this weekend intensive is Mary Magdalene and the multifaceted gifts she is bringing to us 

as the Beloved, the female archetype, the flesh and blood woman,

the spiritual teacher in her own right, and as the companion of the Prince of Love.

We will draw inspiration from the text called The Gospel of The Beloved Companion,

describes a profound transmission between Magdalene and Jesus, or Jeshua as he is called here.

In the gospel, Jeshua shows Mary Magdalene a vision.

It is a map of awakening consciousness in the form of the The Tree of Life Within.

He shows her 8 gates and the challenges she must go through in order to

pass through the gates to awaken and embody a more expansive consciousness.

In our retreat, we will travel in the inner realms following the map that he shows her.

About the Practice:

First of all: we go deep. We don’t sit around and only “talk about it”; we’re all about direct experience. This is a highly experiential path; a lot of the practices are interactive and include movement, expression and also respectful touch. There will be talks and Q&A with Chameli, as well as Women’s Temple practices.

The basis for all spiritual exploration in the Shakti tradition is the insight that that which we are longing for is who we already are. Thus our practice is not toward a goal of attainment in the future; it is a process of melting, of unraveling the wisdom and beauty already inherent in each woman.
