Second Annual Online International Mary Magdalene Conference
Reuniting with Our Roots: Mary Magdalene and the Tree of Life Saturday, February 18- Tuesday, February 21, 2023 10:00 am - 2:00pm PDT each day-also recorded for later viewing
A four day global online conference designed to reclaim Mary Magdalene and the "lost stories" and forgotten women of Early Christianity.
A gathering of renowned scholars of divergent orientations (Eastern Orthodox, Gnostic, Catholic, Presbyterian, Jewish, Sufi, Quaker, Episcopalian and Interfaith) will offer fresh insights through their exciting contemporary research on the texts of the Gospel of Mark, the Gospel of Mary and the Gospel of Thomas and the urgent relevance Mary Magdalene has for restoring a harmonious connection with nature-- with the natural world around us and with our truest nature of goodness within.
Workshop leaders will offer tools for deepening your spiritual life through ancient monastic practices that awaken your imagination and creativity as we explore the contemplative traditions of chanting, Lectio Divina and Visio Divina. Artists, poets and musicians will open the doors of your heart through their illuminating and inspiring creations and there will be time for sharing what is stirring in your own heart on our final day with small breakout groups and an "open mike" hour of poetry and images from our participants. This is a perfect prelude to Lent and an excellent resource for creating a more meaningful spiritual life, whether for just yourself, for a small circle of friends or as way to re-invigorate and deepen a church community, with a feast of ways that you can deepen your own spiritual and creative practices.
