Mary Magdalene: Apostle for Our Times
Kayleen Asbo, MA
The image of Mary Magdalene as a penitent prostitute, which dominated Western culture for 1,400 years, has given way in recent times to a plethora of portrayals. However, a careful reading of both the New Testament and the so called Gnostic texts reveals an image essential for our times: that of a female disciple of Jesus’ inner circle whose own teachings point the way for inner transformation, illumination and wholeness. Drawing on both traditional and Gnostic scriptures as well as legends of Provence, we will explore the pivotal place Mary Magdalene has held in both traditional and esoteric Christianity as the Apostle to the Apostles, an understanding exploding in our time on concert stages worldwide through the operas and oratorios of Mark Adamo and other composers.

Healing the Whole Body: Understanding How Health Goes Beyond Food and the Physical
Our physical body is a compilation of cells that have been created from the food we eat combined with environmental factors. One of the best ways to begin healing the body is by understanding how food and our environment affect us on a cellular level. Diet and lifestyle improvements can bring powerful transformation for many people. But, sometimes people won’t heal by altering their diet alone. Beyond the physical body, there are other parts of us that need to be healed as well: the emotional and spiritual body need to be nourished as well. If we don’t address what is going on emotionally, we could remain sick no matter how well we are eating. Join Andrea in this two-part webinar series to discover what your body is saying to you on a physical, emotional and spiritual level and how to heal to help you live your best life ever!

Tending the Living Image: A Dream Tending Webinar
Stephen Aizenstat, PhD
What if you could have a conversation with a figure from your nightly dreams in waking life? This webinar invites you into the world of Dream Tending, a unique approach to dreamwork. Through story and example, Stephen Aizenstat shares Dream Tending methods that feature a process of discovery in which dreamers become “naturalists” of the psyche, observing the activity of the images in the unfolding dreamscape. He will demonstrate Dream Tending by working with the dreams of participants, and will offer tools and techniques to assist dreamers in working both with their own dreams or those of others.
