The Magdalene Mysteries relate both to ‘hidden’ histories and Gnostic Texts concerning Mary Magdalene and Jesus, and to the Tradition of the Blue Rose, the name given to MM’s teachings, and a lineage of Grail Priestesses and Womb Shamans whose central symbol is the Chalice of the Grail, and whose guiding force is the Cosmic Sophia. MM has a strong presence throughout France, particularly in Provence, and in the Languedoc where the Cathar Gnostic Movement – devotees of MM and Jesus – also flourished.
On April 28th, Marie Saeger and Robin Rausch will talk about their experiences on a pilgrimage last fall to the Languedoc, France and Catalonia, Spain where they visited some of the sites sacred to these traditions.
Marie Saeger is among the earliest participants in the Wisewoman group. Marie is from Toledo, Ohio and has lived in Germany, Spain, and Paraguay. She has also traveled in Europe, the Middle East, South America, and Asia. She has worked as a teacher, travel agent, Red Cross case worker, Peace Corps volunteer, and computer programmer analyst. She is retired and lives in Silver Spring, MD.
Robin Rausch is also among the Wisewoman group’s earliest members. Her interest in things Jungian dates from a class in religious myth and symbolism that she took in undergraduate school. She holds degrees in music and library science and is currently the head of Reader Services in the Music Division at the Library of Congress.
