About the Book

Were Jesus and Mary Magdalene married? In Rituals in Sacred Stone: Mary Magdalene’s message of self empowerment you’ll find the depth of love, devotion, knowledge and wisdom that made this famous couple able to work as a powerful team in a world mired in occupation and rebellion.

The preserved shrunken head of an ancestor accompanies Mariam while she is educated at the mystery schools of Egypt. As a fully trained priestess, queen and wife, she performs the rituals required to apply the gifts of the Magi. Was the head of John the Baptist an oracle used as a political plot? Why did the crucifixion take place on a hollow hill called “the skull”? What is the Journey of Osiris?

Rituals in Sacred Stone: Mary Magdalene’s message of self empowerment is a controversial interpretation of the life of Mary Magdalene and brings you to the heart-wrenching choices that her education, her ancestry, and ancient prophecies forced her to make.

About the Author

What has been chosen to be revealed and what has been masterfully hidden makes the biblical figure of Mary Magdalene even more alluring. Veiled in mystery and obscurity, the fascination has amplified as more historical facts have been shaken out of historical dust.

Wencke Johanne Braathen has looked for material about Mary Magdalene for over thirty years. Recent research by respected authors has painted a rich picture of her time and the culture surrounding her. Traveling in southern France, the author walked the paths visiting the castles, cathedrals, and grottoes where Mary Magdalene lived according to the local legends. In Provence, descending the stairs through time to a crypt, she encountered a powerful relic—the head of her heroine. Combining her research and her own personal experience, she wrote Rituals in Sacred Stone: Mary Magdalene’s message of self empowerment.

Wencke Johanne Braathen was born in Norway among stave churches and homespun wool. She lives in Chicago with her husband, who loves her and the fjords she came from. This book is the result of a lifelong journey.
