About the Book

Magdalene’s Journey is the story of Cambridge-based Rochelle and Angelo, whose lives are turned upside down after they receive visitations from souls who once walked the earth over two thousand years ago. During these meetings, they learn about a world far beyond their linear thinking.

Filled with deeply personal revelation and timely wisdom, this passionate, raw chronicle explores the life of Mary Magdalene, otherwise known as Miriam of Magdala, including her relationship with the apostles—both male and female— and her life with Yeshua (Jesus of Nazareth). The book offers a modern enhancement to reality and captures a universal yet revolutionary message about their lives, now recreated in a new, fuller, and more tangible narrative.

It shares the need to rebalance the masculine and feminine energy in the world, starting within each one of us. Magdelene’s Journey challenges a filtered and archaic narrative that has defined Abrahamic religions and women’s pivotal role in history. This rich, bold, and emotional story pushes you beyond your comfort zone, prodding you to reconsider your definitions of imaginary, visionary, reality, and truth as well as re-examine history and answers to life’s most paradoxical questions about humanity’s very existence.

This mind-bending dialogue with two of the world’s most misunderstood spiritual masters presents an inner gnosis approach to understanding “Source” or God, based on Yeshua’s original teachings. Magdalene’s chronicle frees readers from the confines of a masculine view of who she was and how she has been portrayed across history.

The reader receives astonishingly similar parallels between Miriam and Yeshua’s ancient wisdom to the Cosmos as explained by quantum physics. Through their teachings, Rochelle and Angelo begin to question the very nature of reality itself.

Ready to take a wild ride into yesteryear that heals us all in the present? It’s a page turner you won’t want to miss.

Read with an open mind, it conveys the sense of awe and significance that envelops the ultimate meaning of our existence.”

―Shamini Jain, Ph.D. Psychologist, Scientist & Founder of CHI (Consciousness and Healing Initiative) and best-selling author of Healing Ourselves

"What do we know about the divine feminine and masculine, and how do we access the spiritual wisdom that lies within us? In this exhilarating, provocative book, the authors move beyond historical rhetoric, and through sacred storytelling invite us on an inward journey, so that we may discover how we can embody the divine masculine and feminine in our world and in our daily lives."

―Amit Goswami, Ph.D. Quantum Physicist, author of over 40 books, including The Self Aware Universe, Physics of the Soul and The Everything Answer Book

“There are few inspirational books around and even fewer that give inspirational messages using quantum physics. This is one of those rare exceptions. Magdalene’s Journey is reader-friendly. Read and enjoy!”

―Sandra Ingerman, MA. World-renowned Shamanic Teacher and Author of 12 Books including Medicine for the Earth & The Book of Ceremony

“In Renee and Anthony’s narrative, the two main characters of the book receive a series of amazing and loving visitations. These visitations bring through powerful teachings about how unity consciousness, oneness, and love have the power to heal ourselves, others, and the planet. Magdalene’s Journey helps us evolve out of outdated paradigms that no longer serve us. Their story weaves modern science into ancient esoteric wisdom so we can all expand and embrace new stories that have the power to heal humanity.”

―Gabriele Hilberg, Ph.D., MFT Psychotherapist, Silicon Valley CA & International Speaker

“This book challenges traditional thinking about Mary Magdalene’s pivotal role during the time of Jesus. Have you ever wondered what really happened between them and her contribution to that chapter in history? You are invited to sense your own gut-level recognition of the truth about the surprising events being revealed as the gripping story of Magdalene’s Journey unfolds. Not to be missed.”

—Natalie Petouhoff, Ph.D. Vice President, Fortune 500 Company and Wall Street Journal Best-Selling Author of Empathy in Action

"In a world where people are searching for meaning, this book comes at just the right time to help us make sense of the world we think we know, opening our minds to possibilities and realities so delicious that we feel transported and freed from the normal confines of everydayness.”

―Cyndi Dale Author of 30-plus World-Renown Energy Healing Books including The Subtle Body Series

“Across the world, one of the greatest religious mysteries involves the nature of the “real” relationship between Mary Magdalene and Jesus. Dogma seldom equals truth, only a support for a specific hierarchy. Magdalene’s Journey breaks us free from the shadows of patriarchy to present a delightful, intelligent, and deep storyline that tugs at the imagination and whispers, 'There is truth in this tale.' Quantum science serves as the bridge to how yesterday’s knowledge can impact today’s culture. Perhaps—hopefully—it is time to restore the balance between the feminine and the masculine and transform this world into the realm of light it is meant to be.”

―David Bolinsky Award-Winning, Pioneering Medical Animator & Scriptwriter, Former Illustrator at Yale School of Medicine

“The story of early Christianity was written by historical winners―largely male and authoritarian―too parsimonious to share the historical stage or point of view with the other half of humanity. An ephemeral guide and companion while narrating her story, Magdalene pierces the lives of an unsuspecting couple with deeply moving & wise dialogues that both clarify and animate sclerotic, ancient dioramas with heart and pulse. Magdalene’s descriptions of daily life, family entanglements, and political and social complexity root the reader in a memoir. You’ll move from a comfortable perch into a fascinating and daring adventure, ultimately landing in a welcoming embrace.”

―Jill Lublin International Speaker, Publicist and 4x Best-Selling Author, including The Profit of Kindness

“Imagine the combination of rich storytelling depicting Mary Magdalene’s life and her vital role alongside Jesus with groundbreaking insights and parallels to modern science all in one book. A page-turner, you find yourself eager to dive into the next chapter of her life while rethinking your idea of truth along the way. A must-read!”

Historical Fiction Meets Visionary Literature

What was the inspiration behind the book?

Truth be told, we—Renee and Anthony—knew nothing about Mary Magdalene beyond name recognition. Despite our many spiritual experiences over the years, we both ran from institutional dogma at an early age. The traditional rules and restrictions approach to God has never resonated with either one of us and because the references to Miriam of Magdala and Jesus of Nazareth often occurred in a traditional religious context, they weren’t on our radar.

You might say that Miriam and Yeshua found us. Deeply rooted in simple but profound teachings, the combination of Yeshua’s wisdom and Miriam’s life story got under our skin. More importantly, it made its way into our hearts.

As a renowned jazz artist friend once said to us, “We are all connected to the universe. We have access to all of it; most people just don’t realize it.” This work gave us the experience of that connection, and reading the book allows you to share that connection as well.

Her journey took the shape of declarations about her life with Yeshua and the apostles, statements that challenge a much filtered and archaic narrative that has dictated to humanity how to understand history and the Abrahamic religions.

It didn’t take long for us to discover a growing curiosity about this mysterious woman who was referred to by different names: Miriam of Magdala, Mariam, Mary Magdalene, the Tower, Madeleine, or simply the Magdalene. Tossed aside like an inconvenient truth by the powers behind patriarchal Roman thrones and later the male-controlled Catholic hierarchy, she has mostly been unknown. People who took the time to probe deeper still looked through that tainted lens, leading them to misunderstand and devalue her role as a healer and teacher. That role, one could argue, was equal to that of Yeshua’s as the yin to his yangcomplementary and interconnected forces that together deepened the power of their healing abilities.

Are the teachings in the book based on the teachings of Yeshua (Jesus?)

When Magdalene’s Journey talks about Biblical texts, it is to suggest that omitting or changing Yeshua’s original teachings in these texts served Roman and later Catholic Church power structures. First and foremost, Yeshua taught about love and that the kingdom lies within, teachings that are echoed throughout the book.

Layered throughout the book are Yeshua’s true teachings in the way that we have come to understand them through our own research, interpretations, and personal experiences.


Is Magdalene’s Journey based on research and facts?

Although the material has not been validated by historians or academics, sections in the book point to historical accounts and places as well as to some of the research about her.

Countless questions about Miriam of Magdala remain unanswered and many gaps persist, pointing to a larger, unacknowledged question: How many powerful and pivotal women have been written out of history and holy books? Even for scholars and historians who have investigated this period in time, there’s much that they still don’t know. 

As Historical Fiction, you might say that it combines history and mystery. As such, it also befits Visionary Literature—refer to the answers related to both book categories in the FAQ.

Why did the authors choose Historical Fiction as a category?

This story about Mary Magdalene counters the patriarchal powers that misshaped her life for far too long. You won’t find religious dogma in this story nor in Yeshua’s teachings which are woven into Magdalene’s narrative like an exquisite and treasured tapestry from yesteryear.

We have combined elements of history, the visionary, and our personal experiences into the book. To the extent that Magdalene’s Journey can be called Historical Fiction, it most resembles two subtypes: biographical historical fiction and alternative history. It is biographical as the story of Mary Magdalene’s and Yeshua’s lives, and it is alternative in that her story challenges religious and scientific orthodoxy and their mainstream paradigms of reality.

Consider how James Redfield’s The Celestine Prophecy and Tolkien’s The Hobbit mix familiar elements of reality or history to draw the reader into a world of magic and mystery with their surreal underpinnings. Similarly, Magdalene’s Journey is designed to entice you into a world of historical enchantment from yesteryear that feels familiar and comfortable at times and far-reaching, ethereal, and otherworldly at others. The series Outlander also blends fantasy and historical reality although it remains grounded in actual locations, as does Magdalene’s Journey.

Although you can easily dismiss any truth from other books that fall into the realm of historical fiction, films, or TV series, they all raise serious questions: Where did they get their ideas from? Was it a vision, a dream, or a daytime imaginary stroke of brilliance? Does one life possibility exist instead of the other, or do the two proposed lives exist in parallel dimensions happening simultaneously? Can our consciousness access both in ways that cannot be dismissed as mere imagination or make-believe? Perhaps most important of all, can imagination be a pathway to higher realities?

We present these questions because you may find yourself asking similar ones when you read through the mix of the comfortably realistic and the seemingly awe-inspiring in Magdalene’s Journey.

Whatever terms you choose, you might begin to question whether Miriam’s account of her time with Yeshua and her life after his death is real or imagined. This post-modern question is at the heart of the book, upending categories of fact and imagined realities. Miriam certainly claims a higher truth to her journey.

On the flip side, unlike most non-fiction, this work postulates as truth that more than one truth exists and that reality depends on perception rather than a purely external, provable claim. And while some may decide such a message makes this book a work of the imagination, it resonates with the implications of quantum physics as well, some of which are shared in the book.

What makes this book an example of Visionary Literature?

Besides historical fiction, the genre that fits Magdalene’s Journey well is Visionary Literature. Within this genre live the labels of New Age, Mind and Body, and Mysticism. Depending on whom you ask or where you unearth your definition of this lesser-known genre of Visionary Literature, you’ll find a whole host of descriptions and informally related categories, which include consciousness and spirituality but also those further afield like parapsychology. A key feature of the content is the “expansion of the human mind” or “growth in consciousness.” An overview of the genre from the Visionary Literature Alliance (accessed April 4, 2023) suggests the following:

Visionary Fiction embraces spiritual and esoteric wisdom, often from ancient sources, and makes it relevant to our modern life. Gems of this spiritual wisdom are brought forth in story form so that readers can experience the wisdom from within themselves.

Two other key features mentioned on the same site are a plot that is “universal in worldview and scope” and a story that may use “reincarnation, dreams, visions, paranormal events, psychic abilities, and other metaphysical plot devices.

While this understanding of the genre is fairly recent, visionary art is far from a new term. In his essay, “Psychology and Literature,” Carl Jung (1875-1961) divided art into the psychological and the visionary; the former connects to realism and conscious, individual experiences while the latter emerges from what we might deem the imagination or collective unconscious and something that feels unfamiliar. Examples Jung deems visionary include Dante’s The Divine Comedy and Goethe’s Faust. Dante’s early fourteenth-century epic poem, The Divine Comedy, features a spiritual journey, using Virgil as a guide for Dante to pilgrim through hell and purgatory.

Although Jung did not categorize Blake as visionary, Blake has often been called visionary because of the visions and prophecies he expressed in poetry, some prose, and some etched images. Going further back, we can look to Virgil (70 BCE), the ancient Roman poet from the Augustan Period, known for The Aeneid, a visionary epic depicting relations with the gods. 

If we rewind the clock even further, the legendary poet Homer comes to mind. Regarded as the author of two great classical works foundational to Greek and by extension to all Western literature: The Odyssey and The Iliad. Both are seen as epic poetry, some of whose features overlap with the visionary. Both portray journeys—Achilles’ metaphorical journey of the hero in The Iliad and Odysseus’ journey as the core plot; contain dreams and divine intervention; and illustrate growth in wisdom applicable to all humans, such as persistence and trust in one’s instincts. At the same time, they overlap with historical fiction in that they include the Trojan War. In the context of visionary literature as a modern book genre, The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho could be seen as a defining example; it shares with other visionary writers the use of a journey in his allegorical fable of spiritual growth and enlightenment.

Together, these examples—old and new—demonstrate that although visionary literature is often equated with content that is religious in nature, this equation is not always the case. Instead, it can be quite broad, just as the loosely related genre of metaphysical literature has come to be broad in nature. Samuel Johnson first coined the term metaphysical poetry to describe certain seventeenth-century English poets who relied on science and other intellectual knowledge to express emotional, moral, and religious matters, but today metaphysical literature has taken on a different meaning; it includes not only poetry but also may use knowledge related to the supernatural, Gnostic, and transcendent.

As visionary literature, Magdalene’s Journey offers a consciousness-expanding narrative about the life of Miriam of Magdala and about the nature of reality she and Yeshua want us to understand. It contains “spiritual and esoteric wisdom, often from ancient sources, and makes it relevant to our modern life.” It is “universal in worldview and scope.” And it uses what may seem to be “paranormal events” and the metaphysical plot device of timeline jumps. All of these aspects of visionary literature help build historical fiction’s alternative story that challenges religious and scientific orthodoxy and their mainstream paradigms of reality.

What is the connection to science in the story and their teachings?

Buttressing the plausibility of the alternating ancient and modern storylines in Magdalene’s Journey are scientific explanations of the surreal exchanges. The jumps in timelines and other seemingly fantastic phenomena often require quantum science in particular although we, as the authors, never proclaim a fully accurate understanding of quantum realities.

Over the past twenty years, countless books have probed deeper to attempt to explain new scientific discoveries and their relationship to God, spirituality, and consciousness. While some scientists and philosophers debate the validity of new findings, or at least their practical applications in our daily lives, we have come to realize that there may be things happening we can’t yet fully understand, including within the void and dark matter that our human eyes can’t see.

As science makes more discoveries and unravels more quantum mysteries, it seems likely that humanity will better understand the complex, mind-bending ways the universe works, particularly how the energies within it exist in a nonlinear, nonlocal dimension. In essence, reality is a beautiful dance between the local and nonlocal world, between local consciousness and nonlocal consciousness and everything contained within the truly omnipresent All That Is.

We’ve come a long way in the last century. Although relativity and string theory are not yet everyday twenty-first-century dinner conversations, they have indeed entered our awareness. Within this expanded awareness exist unlimited possibilities and probabilities or paths we can take.

We now realize that every action has an impact elsewhere, which some refer to as cause-and-effect. We know now that the universe is more connected than we realize, an idea that has expanded substantially since Schrödinger first coined entanglement. While this idea is far from new, understanding various complex interactions, effects, and entanglements in many spheres from everyday reality to subatomic dynamics is continuing to grow. It truly is an interconnected and participatory universe, even if we’ve yet to fully comprehend it.

The butterfly effect suggests that one small change in one state can change a state somewhere else in the world. The concept has been extended to other situations in which small changes can lead to larger consequences, even in the cosmos itself. An even more complex idea of the cosmos, the multiple worlds theory, implies that there are an infinite number of universes and that perhaps we’re even folded into or part of other universes we simply can’t see. In other words, this ripple effect is much more profound than we can grasp with our linear minds. Stephen Hawking once said, “The universe, according to quantum physics, has no single past or history. The fact that the past takes no definite form means that observations you make on a system in the present affect its past.”

Perhaps we’re only seeing the tip of the iceberg of what David Bohm, Einstein, Schrödinger, and other forward-looking and cutting-edge thinkers have uncovered. To the dismay of some, several of the newfound truths looked more like metaphysics than traditional science. A small number of courageous and bold visionaries have been shot down for suggesting an interrelationship between the metaphysical and the physical worlds. Materialists have tried to cement a separation between the two, but more and more have been brave enough to step forward and speak their challenging and controversial truth.

These emerging answers to profound questions remain tentative because they have been beyond what we can prove with physical evidence, whether by direct observation or by consistent scientific measurement. Recently, however, Western science has made progress in proving quantum dynamics; moving from theory to evidence, three scientists from three different countries received the 2022 Nobel prize in physics for developing tools to identify particle entanglement in particles normally considered too far apart to affect each other.

Miriam’s narrative offers a glimpse into the world of interconnected multidimensionality, a concept that closes a gap that has long divided mystics, spiritualists, and philosophers on one side and materialists, scientists, and physicists on the other. It also brings you into the world of nonlocal consciousness beyond the observable physical world where Newtonian laws apply.

Is there any evidence that female apostles existed?

The New Testament book of Luke mentions that Yeshua had female followers; however, it only says they are called disciples while the twelve apostles Yeshua chose were all men. Luke also notes that these women financially supported Yeshua’s teaching. Three specific well-off women are named: Mary Magdalene, Joanna, the wife of Herod Antipas’ household manager, and Susanna, about whom little is known. Yeshua is said to have healed all three. Although Luke mentions the existence of many other female followers, nothing more is said about them. In later years, other women who served with people such as Paul are also mentioned in the Book of Acts.

As Magdalene’s Journey reveals, it took extra courage for women to leave their families to follow Yeshua and teach. Readers learn more about women who are clearly not only disciples but apostles. This fact alone stands as a correction to a patriarchal narrative about Yeshua’s female followers. In Miriam’s account, female apostles continue to work with Miriam after Yeshua’s Resurrection. It is perhaps interesting that none of these women are Joanna or Susanna, yet this should not downplay the importance of those women who committed their lives to Yeshua’s teachings and healings and who the male-dominated powers of the time ignored or devalued.

According to religion scholar Mary Anne Beavis in her paper “Reconsidering Mary of Bethany,” it appears that Miriam of Magdala and Mary of Bethany were identified as one by early Christians. Yet Beavis also suggests that the Orthodox Church saw Miriam of Magdala and Mary of Bethany as two different women. Later, Beavis continues, in 591 C.E., Pope Gregory added the identity of a prostitute to Miriam, an identity which continued for centuries in Western Christianity.

According to an article by Mary Ann Beavis from The Center for Christian Ethics at Baylor University:

“The legend of Mary Magdalene, the sister of Martha and Lazarus, as a beautiful, vain, and lustful young woman saved from a life of sin by her devotion to Jesus became dominant in Western (Catholic) Christianity, although the Eastern (Orthodox) church continued to regard Mary Magdalene and Mary of Bethany as distinct saints, and identified neither with Luke’s sinner.”

As is well known, Pope Paul VI uncoupled all three women in 1969. But Beavis notes, “the Gnostic texts may have conflated them.” In other words, the Mary (Miriam) of the Gnostic Gospel of Mary either combines the two, identifies the two as one, or creates a composite. 

Duke University scholar Elizabeth Schrader observed some changes made to a 12th-century Greek manuscript in Duke’s library that blurred the lines between Mary and Martha. It appeared that names were altered in Papyrus 66, thought to be the “oldest near-complete manuscript of the Gospel of John.” Schrader believes this was done to “distort the Gospel of John’s presentation of Mary Magdalene. If Lazarus’s sister Mary is Mary Magdalene, then she becomes a far more authoritative figure in the Gospel of John. However, once Martha is added to this story, Lazarus’ sister Mary isn’t Mary Magdalene anymore—instead she’s a different Mary from a different gospel (Martha’s sister from Luke 10).”

Given that there are other accounts and suggestions, even from scholars, that Christian texts have downplayed Mary Magdalene’s prominence and role, it is highly likely that her strength and courage for that time in history meddled with patriarchal thrones and power. Even art across centuries has depicted Mary Magdalene’s demeanor as weak and yielding to Jesus rather than the strong female apostle that she likely was, teaching and healing alongside him prior to his death.

As Magdalene’s Journey reveals, it took extra courage for women to leave their families to follow Yeshua and teach. Readers learn more about women who are clearly not only disciples but apostles. This fact alone stands as a correction to a patriarchal narrative about Yeshua’s female followers.

In Miriam’s account, female apostles continue to work with Miriam after Yeshua’s Resurrection. It is perhaps interesting that none of these women are Joanna or Susanna, yet this should not downplay the importance of those women who committed their lives to Yeshua’s teachings and healings and who the male-dominated powers of the time ignored or devalued.

There are several ways Angelo's abilities are explained, including expanded states of consciousness and channeling. Can you elaborate?

Miriam’s narrative offers a glimpse into the world of interconnected multidimensionality, a concept that closes a gap that has long divided mystics, spiritualists, and philosophers on one side and materialists, scientists, and physicists on the other. It also brings you into the world of non-local consciousness beyond the observable physical world where Newtonian laws apply.

If we accept the assertion that consciousness is ubiquitous and forever emerging, it would seem that we can access it at all times. Knowing that we are connected to the Universal Consciousness of All That Is which includes non-locality, it doesn’t seem like such a far stretch to claim knowledge beyond our individual, ego consciousness. In her book, The Cosmic Hologram: In-formation at the Center of Creation, cosmologist Jude Currivan explains it in this way:

By understanding that all that we call reality, not only on the physical plane but also beyond, is consciousness exploring and experiencing itself on myriad levels, the cosmic hologram offers an all-encompassing model of the Cosmos. . . . [E]xperiences of non-local awareness that are capable of transcending space-time, while nonetheless extraordinary, should come to be seen as innate abilities.

The idea of non-local consciousness is central to understanding the source of stories that are passed from Miriam, Yeshua, Lazarus, the Essenes, and Elohim to the two main characters of the book, Rochelle and Angelo. Also critical is the means to accessing this non-local consciousness.

In Magdalene’s Journey, Miriam shares with Rochelle that one example of accessing non-local consciousness or whatever term you wish to use, is channeling. On a couple of occasions, Miriam explains to Rochelle that one of the female apostles channeled Yeshua, bringing his energy and words into her auric field. Of course, they obviously didn’t call it channeling during their time, but Miriam chooses modern terminology as a way to explain and connect what was happening then with what is happening now through Angelo and Rochelle, experiences that we have shared in the book. 

Besides channeling, other practices gaining acceptance today explain how human beings can access expanded awareness and consciousness, including non-local information. These include shamanic journeying, psychedelic experiences, meditation, Kundalini yoga, and soft martial arts, amongst a host of other examples. Many have ancient roots. As Miriam reminds Rochelle in the book, “age-old sages, indigenous elders, and spiritual masters have been able to bilocate and access subtle realms and dimensions for eons.”

In the modern world, Helané Wahbeh’s research, published as The Science of Channeling, evinces greater public acceptance of channeling. Her premise is that “all humans can channel. That everyone can reveal information and energy from beyond time and space.”

Yet for some, the word still invites ridicule or conjures a certain unseemliness, giving rise to skewed labels and biases; some even stigmatize it as energies or outside “forces” taking over the human body. Perhaps these negative connotations, especially the idea of possession, reveal perceptions based on superstition and fear, drilled into us through traditional religion for so long that most people avoid the term—at least publicly—so as to avoid dismissive judgment by the masses and the media.

Reframing channeling without fear and in the context of Magdalene’s Journey, we suggest it can be thought of as the ability to access a creative databank in the non-local “cloud” as well as trustworthy inner guidance that everyone can access whenever they choose. The language you choose to describe such an experience is entirely up to you. 

Consider fantasy authors like J.R.R. Tolkien (notably The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings) and science fiction producers like George Lucas (Star Wars and Indiana Jones, amongst others); neither Tolkien nor Lucas call their work channeled stories or non-fiction. Conceivably their award-winning masterpieces are a combination of their vivid imaginations, dreams, and intuitive minds. However, our perception of what we each experience through those masterpieces may well place the stories in a realm beyond our everyday world. We are all co-creators of any work we read or experience through our various senses. Put another way, what we give energy to ultimately breeds life; it becomes a living entity in its own right, part of and yet also beyond the creator and reader or audience.

Did Beethoven, Einstein, and Van Gogh channel their creations? Some would argue that they did, whereas others would simply call it imagination or “genius.” The inner experiences of all of these creators may have been more alike than we know. What we can glean about how an author sees her creation lies in the perspective and language he is comfortable using to describe the experience of that creation, whether it’s a book, play, opera, film, or colors thrown on a canvas. The language or label of any creation process dictates where it lives in humanity’s collective consciousness.

Throughout the story, the characters Rochelle and Angelo question how their consciousness can expand to such a degree that information outside their “known” understanding can be relayed to them. They ask themselves: “Are we traveling through a portal to access knowledge from two thousand years ago? Are Miriam and Yeshua traveling through a portal to speak to us?” They eventually deduce that we are all portals of knowledge or consciousnessalways connected to each othersomething we as authors have also concluded.

The riveting narrative woven together inside Magdalene’s Journey brings old and new worlds together. It is designed to lead you down a path of discovery, encouraging you to ask deeper questions about the nature of reality itself and the highest spiritual wisdom.
