Arcanum: The Lost Secrets of Mary Magdalene’s Ascension (May 2014)
The allure of Mary Magdalene has inspired countless artists and mystics for centuries. As the supreme initiate of Jesus, she holds the key to unlocking the greatest occult mystery of resurrection. Her powers of ascension can be traced through a sacred lineage that includes Enoch’s transfiguration and the Aton of Akhenaton.
Perhaps the most compelling aspect of her mysteries is the alabaster jar of chrism. When one is anointed with this oil, he or she is instantly transformed into a radiant body of light. Perhaps this is what happened in the tomb when Mary anointed the body of Christ. Many images of Mary contain esoteric symbols that suggest she may indeed have learned the secrets of Aton and transfiguration.
Clare and William Henry explore the lost secrets of Mary Magdalene’s ascension as told though the esoteric symbols that often accompany her images in this presentation originally webcast May 20, 2014.
