For those who want to explore feminine spirituality and past life revelations, this book will certainly fascinate and inform you. The life of Mary Magdalene has been enveloped in mystery for two thousand years; sometimes vilified and other times honored for her role in the earliest days of Christianity. Through past life regressions conducted by the author, Mary Magdalene’s life is revealed. As a child, she had healing powers and knowledge beyond her years. Her adult years, including marriage and children, enduring joys and sorrows, and teaching other women spiritual truths, are intriguing. The author also worked with a second woman, who had a past life as Tamar, Mary’s daughter. The Magdalene Lineage: Past Life Journeys into the Sacred Feminine Mysteries, written by renowned regression therapist Reena Kumarasingham, is a must-read for anyone who wants to learn about this legendary woman and her teachings.
One of the most poignant aspects of this book is the author’s thoughtful comparisons to other sources of information about Mary Magdalene and Tamar. She carefully portrayed the historical era, including the cultural and political climate. Her description of the Essenes matches other texts describing the beliefs and works of this group. She also adds the reasons why certain sects and the early Christian Church portrayed Mary Magdalene in derogatory terms, rather than as the spiritual teacher and healer she was. Although the book contains much historical data, it is easily read and understood by any curious reader. Author Reena Kumarasingham has written a well-crafted and intriguing text in The Magdalene Lineage: Past Life Journeys into the Sacred Feminine Mysteries. A wonderful book!
