Read the book’s introduction



A profound and sensitive approach to Mary Magdalene. Houston’s work is solidly rooted not only in scholarship but also in spiritual depth. I can’t think of a better place to start one’s explorations of this beautiful but enigmatic figure.”
Richard Smoley, author of Forbidden Faith: The Gnostic Legacy from the Gospels to The Da Vinci Code and Inner Christianity

Recent discoveries of ancient sacred texts such as the Gospel of Mary tell us that Mary Magdalene was independent, insightful, and courageous–a woman so inspirational that her voice can still be heard across the ages. I invite you to develop your own personal relationship with Mary Magdalene through devotional practice of prayers, meditations, and visualizations from around the world. Drawing on contemporary expressions of Magdalene spirituality, including pagan and Gnostic traditions, I offer step-by-step guidance for accessing the wisdom of the Divine Feminine. A CD of guided visualizations and meditations accompany the hardbound book.

Journey to the Cave of St. Baume

by Siobhan Houston | Invoking Mary Magdalene: Accessing the Wisdom of the Divine Feminine

Gnostic Healing: Revealing the Power of God (Tau Malachi, co-author)

In this groundbreaking work, Gnostic teacher and bishop Tau Malachi and I team up to present powerful Gnostic healing practices in a clear and systematic way found nowhere else. Techniques include mystical prayer, meditation, and sacred ceremony, and are suitable for both beginning and experienced healers.

It is a surprisingly complete book on healing that “stands on its own as a complete volume – no prerequisite knowledge of Gnosticism, Kabbalah, or healing is assumed or required.” The healing addressed is everywhere from hands-on energy healing, to forms of baptism, elemental healing, creation of holy oil and water, healing as and through communion, and helping someone die in peace and facilitate the transition. —Spiral Nature

Priests, Gnostics and Magicians: European Roots of Esoteric Independent Catholicism

Priests, Gnostics and Magicians highlights a well-kept secret in the history of contemporary religion–the Independent Catholic movement and specifically the subsection of this movement influenced by occult philosophy. I trace the beginnings of the Independent Catholic lineage, documenting many fascinating points of contact between esoteric and magical communities and the Independent Catholic churches of Europe. A must read for anyone interested in Independent Catholic history and for those study for Independent Catholic orders. Part of Apocryphile Press’s Independent Catholic History Series.
