Following on from her two previous family archives, the first being her grandmother’s memoir, Madeleine Manning, feeling duty-bound to prolong the family line, tells her own story. Spurning the advances of a rich and famous pop star, she leaves her home in Cornwall to spend the month of August in Connemara with Bridie O’Malley and her family. There, in his island retreat, she meets the artist who is to become the love of her life. However, there are reasons why they should not seek to pursue their relationship, as she finds out to her shock and dismay when she drives him to Galway one day to buy artists’ materials. Can Maddie realise her dream of prolonging the family line in time for the gathering of the clans on the grand occasion planned for the celebration of Bridie’s eightieth birthday the following year?

The Magdalene Connection

And while it offers a more in-depth look into the harsh attitudes toward rape victims and unwed mothers in England and Ireland in the 1950s, this compelling story blossoms into a tale of love, forgiveness, and the true value of family.

Maddie Manning has learned that digging into family history uncovers as many shocks as it does rewards. She now knows that the man she thought was her uncle is in fact her father, and the man she used to call Dad-well, he's actually no blood relation at all. But she's also found a gem of a grandmother, Cecily, the woman who actually gave birth to her real dad at a Magdalene house in 1954. Now it's time to unwrap the story of "the other mother," Bridie, a young Irish woman who was raped by the son of her employer and duped into entering the same Magdalene house, where she too would give birth to a son. Following her fascinating first novel Angel, Sinner, Mermaid, Saint, author Alice Lee Thornton continues her trilogy with The Magdalene Connection, which explores the hidden link forged between Cecily and Bridie. And while it offers a more in-depth look into the harsh attitudes toward rape victims and unwed mothers in England and Ireland in the 1950s, this compelling story blossoms into a tale of love, forgiveness, and the true value of family.

This book is the result of a deep and profound quest for origins, meaning, and healing, written at a time when the human condition appears more fractured from within than at any other time in history. In writing The Magdalene Awakening, Shannon Anderson has successfully journeyed to that sacred space and has "lifted the veil" for her readers revealing the atrium of immortality and enticing them to come and join her on her high mission. The smooth narrative style of the book weaves together a magical journey through the author's quest for the true Magdalene energy, the origins of the Cathars, the Gematria that holds the sacred key, and in the end, a call for transformation. This story is a page turner written by someone who knows, and who allows her readers the rare opportunity to discover these mysteries for themselves, but with the benefit of her company and wisdom to help them on their path. Maria Magdalena Colavito, Ph.D., author of The Pythagorean Intertext in Ovid's Metamorphoses & The New Theogony: Mythology for the Real World.

Discover the Womb Rites and initiatory magic of Mary Magdalene, who was revered as a Priestess and human embodiment of the Goddess • Reveals how Mary Magdalene was a sacred priestess of the ancient Womb Mysteries, connected to moon wisdom, sacred harlot archetypes, and goddesses in many traditions, including Sophia, Isis, Inanna, Asherah, Lilith, Jezebel, and Witches • Explains how the Magdalene Mysteries have been encoded in Gnostic texts, sacred art, and literature and unveils the secret Grail heresy of the Ghent Altarpiece • Offers rituals and practices to initiate you into the Womb magic of the ancient priestesses and access deeper dimensions of sexuality and feminine power A sacred priestess of the ancient Womb Rites, Mary Magdalene was at the center of a great and enduring Mystery tradition, one that touched on a stream of perennial spiritual wisdom as old as humanity. Worshipped as the human embodiment of the Goddess, the earthly Sophia, her womb was the spiritual luminatrix that anointed and empowered Jesus, transforming him into the Christ. As a priestess of the Goddess, Mary Magdalene knew how to embody the light and the dark, how to harness the magic potency of sacred sexual energy, and how to cleanse, awaken, and resurrect the soul. Yet, even though she sparked the creation of a worldwide religion, her story and teachings have been forgotten. Unveiling the lost left-hand path of the Magdalene, the Feminine Christ, authors Seren and Azra Bertrand explore how this underground stream of knowledge has been carried forward over the millennia through an unbroken lineage of Womb Shamans, Priestesses, Oracles, and Medicine Women. They explain how the Magdalene Mysteries, symbolized by the Rose, have been encoded in Gnostic codices and gospels and in the highest art, literature, and architecture of many ages, including most significantly the Ghent Altarpiece. They examine Mary Magdalene’s connection to moon wisdom, sacred harlot archetypes, and goddesses in many traditions, including Isis, Inanna, Asherah, Lilith, and Jezebel, and look at shamanic, tantric, and Cathar expressions of sacred feminine mysteries as well as the Witch and Templar roots of Robin Hood and Maid Marian. In this revelatory and magical text on the lost feminine mystery traditions of Mary Magdalene and the lineage of Sophia, the authors present encompassing theological, historical, mythological, and archetypal wisdom, with rituals and practices to initiate you into the Womb magic of the ancient priestesses and the path of the wild feminine.

The convents, asylums, and laundries that once comprised the Magdalene institutions are the subject of this work. Though originally half-way homes for prostitutes in the Middle Ages, these homes often became forced-labor institutions, particularly in Ireland. Examining the laundries within the context of a growing world capitalist economy, the work argues that the process of colonization, and of defining a national image, determined the nature and longevity of the Magdalene Laundries. This process developed differently in Ireland, where the last laundry closed in 1996. The book focuses on the devolution of the significance of Mary Magdalene as a metaphor for the organization: from an affluent, strong supporter of Jesus to a simple, fallen woman.

This innovative and multidisciplinary collection visits representations and interpretations of Mary Magdalene in the medieval and early modern periods, questioning major scholarly assumptions behind the examination of female saints and their depictions in medieval artworks, literature, and music. Mary Magdalene’s many and various characterizations from reformed prostitute to conversion-figure to devotee of Christ to "apostle to the apostles" to spiritual advisor to the Prince of Marseilles to hermit in the desert, to list just a few examples, mean that the many conflicted representations of Mary Magdalene apply to a staggering variety of cultural material, including art, liturgy, music, literature, theology, hagiography, and the historical record. Furthermore, Mary Magdalene has grown into an extremely popular and controversial figure due to recent books and movies concerning her, and due to a groundswell of general speculation concerning her relationship to Jesus: was she his acquaintance, follower, companion, wife, family-member, or lover? This volume employs a broad spectrum of theoretical methodologies in order to present poststructuralist, postcolonial, postmodernist, hagiographic, and feminist readings of the figure of Mary Magdalene, addressing and interrogating her conflicting roles and the precise relationship between her sacred and secular representations.

From the shadows of history -- out of the ancient prophecies and sacred texts -- comes a conspiracy so vast, so deep, so earth-shattering that the CIA itself is merely a cover for it. The ritualistic slaughter of a college professor right under the nose of CIA agent Jack Dunphy has damned the disgraced operative to a living hell of paper-pushing obscurity. But Dunphy's not ready to surrender his career until he uncovers the truth behind his demotion -- embarking on a covert investigation that's leading him into a world he never dreamed existed. And following a twisted trail of lies, Jack's about to become ensnared in a monstrous international web spun by a secret society as old as civilization. Escape is impossible -- because the players are too powerful, the consequences are too deadly . . . and what's at stake is no less than the destiny of the human race.

By the late second century, early Christian gospels had been divided into two groups by a canonical boundary that assigned normative status to four of them while consigning their competitors to the margins. Connecting Gospels: Beyond the Canonical/Non-canonical Divide finds new ways to reconnect these divided texts. Starting from the assumption that, in spite of their differences, all early gospels express a common belief in the absolute significance of Jesus and his earthly career, this authoritative collection makes their interconnectedness fruitful for interpretation. The contributors have each selected a theme or topic and trace it across two or more gospels on either side of the canonical boundary, and the resulting convergences and divergences shed light not least on the canonical texts themselves as they are read from new and unfamiliar vantage points. This volume demonstrates that early gospel literature can be regarded as a single field of study, in contrast to the overwhelming predominance of the canonical four characteristic of traditional gospels scholarship.

And we are activating a paradigm shift such as the world has never seen.” With Wild Mercy, Mirabai shares the subversive wisdom and fierce compassion of the feminine mystic across cultural boundaries and throughout history. From saints and sages, to goddesses and archetypal energies, to contemporary teachers and seekers—you’ll meet women who blazed a path that will illuminate your own.

As you journey through these pages, you’ll explore: Taking refuge in contemplative practice with St. Teresa of Avila and the Shekinah Longing, embodiment, and union as the heart of feminine spiritual practice with the Hindu poet Mirabai and Mary Magdalene Your relationship with the Earth, motherhood in all its forms, and a loving call to action alongside Gaia and Ix Chel Community and the web of life with Indra, the Beguines, and female prophets throughout history Wild, playful, and compassionate mercy with Tara and Kuan Yin Finding joy in creativity and the arts with Saraswati and Chiyo-ni More inspiration from archetypal goddesses and amazing women past and present—Julian of Norwich, the Sufi saint Rabia, Pachamama, Sophia, Old Spider Woman, Hildegard of Bingen, Demeter, Kali, and more Wild Mercy provides a much-needed alternative to the models of religion and spirituality that have dominated history.

Even as a little girl, Harvard-trained theologian Meggan Watterson knew something was missing from traditional religion – the voices of women. She knew these voices had never been silenced, just buried, so she began a pilgrimage to uncover the presence of the Divine Feminine. What she discovered along the way were not only the many stories, images, and voices of the Divine Feminine in world religions – Christianity’s Mary Magdalene, Hinduism’s Kali Ma, Buddhism’s Green Tara – but also her own spiritual voice, the one veiled beneath years of fear and self-doubt. After a revelation at a sacred site of the Black Madonna in Europe, Meggan realized that being spiritual for her was intricately tied to her view of her body. Rather than transcending the body, denying or ignoring it, she found that she must accept her body as sacred. Only then could she truly hear the voice of unfaltering love inside her – the voice of her soul. Watterson soon found that she was not alone, that there are countless women who long for a spirituality that encourages embodiment, that inspires them to abandon their fears but never themselves, and that shows them how to be led by the audacious and fiercely loving voice of truth inside them. No matter where you rest on the spectrum of spirituality – religious or secular, devout believer or chronic doubter, freelance mystic or borderline agnostic – this story is about the desire to shed what’s holding you back. With passion, humor, poetry, and raw honesty, Meggan provides what religion has left out – a way to lift the veils of your own fear and self-doubt to reveal your soul and find the Divine within.
