Mary Magdalene

Open to the Beloved Companion

and the Tree of Life Within

with Chameli Ardagh & The Awakening Women Team  

July 18 – 21, 2019
Munich, Germany

Welcome to a weekend of practice in beautiful Munich, with Goddess mythology storytelling, dharma talks and Q&A with Chameli, as well as Women’s Temple practices.

We practice the feminine way, an all inclusive in-the-body spirituality. We go deep through a highly experiential path; a lot of the practices we do are dynamic and interactive, incorporating movement, expression and respectful touch.

That which we are longing for is who we already are. Thus our practice is not toward a goal of attainment in the future; it is a process of melting, of unraveling the wisdom and beauty already inherent in each woman.

Our guide in this weekend intensive is Mary Magdalene and the multifaceted gifts she is bringing to us as the Beloved, the female archetype, the flesh and blood woman, the spiritual teacher in her own right, and as the companion of the Prince of Love.

We will draw inspiration from the text called The Gospel of The Beloved Companion, which 
describes a profound transmission between Magdalene and Jesus, or Jeshua as he is called here.

In the gospel, Jeshua shows Mary Magdalene a vision. It is a map of awakening consciousness in the form of the The Tree of Life Within. He shows her 8 gates and the challenges she must go through in order to pass through the gates to awaken and embody a more expansive consciousness. We will travel in the inner realms following the map that he shows her.

Is This Right for Me?

  • Although it is not mandatory, it is best if you have a basic understanding of feminine/embodied spiritual practice. (You can do a self-study course here.)
  • We do not spend much time discussing awakening in theoretical matters; we go deep into direct experience through practice. Although there are plenty of breaks to rest and integrate, know that the Shakti-based embodiment practices can open stronger currents of energy in the body than we are used to.
  • These are not therapeutic programs. If you are in any way feeling unstable psychologically or are going through a severe crisis, we ask you to not join this event.
  • One of our core practices involves respectful touch. Your boundaries will of course always be respected, but if you feel a strong resistance to touch, this is probably not for you. We practice respectful touch a lot in our circle to bring presence into our bodies and cultivate the capacity to allow more life energy to flow through us.

I am so very grateful to Chameli and the Awakening Women team. My heart overflows with love for all the sisters. I feel like I’ve found home ‘within’. I embrace my humanity and allow spirit to be within me, not something I escape to. I now know I can be the deeply feeling women I am and own every part of me; this is a gift beyond words.

I am so humbled and grateful. There have been both subtle changes and massive changes in my life. I have now been able to adapt a daily practice and remind myself of so many gifts that She bestows upon me and my life on a daily basis. I am eternally grateful.

Ancient Healing


 No one has invited me to step more deeply into the living mystery than Chameli. Every cell in my body felt the imprint the first time—and the last—I heard her voice: ‘Welcome to this moment,’ she said. No part of me was excluded from the invitation to know myself as an embodied miracle.

I see you walking in the soft peachiness of the afternoon light,
the land is hot and dry under your feet.

This is the little piece of earth that you call home,
you know this land intimately as a mother.

Your hips feel warm and tingling,
there is an inward smile radiating through them,
reaching me through the mirage of time.

Like a mirror He has arrived, your Beloved, yourself.
His Presence, His warmth, His unwavering vast love. Yes.

You recognized in Him your own splendorous heart.
Magdalena, Mygdala, Miriam, Yogini Sister,
thank you for calling us into practice, into the circle, once again.
You once inhaled the scent of His skin, our Brother of Love,
we know you can lead us into the very depth of the love He embodied.
We are ready, take us all the way.
