Mary Magdalene has been my passion-- almost an obsession- since she appeared in a dream twenty years ago. I've travelled the world researching her story, myths and legends, gathering music and prayers and over 5,000 images from across almost two millenia. I honor her memory and legacy by offering a series of online and in person gatherings to share the deep wisdom and beauty the Magdalene Legacy offers.
