Episode 141: Where is the Feminine in Christianity? Mary Magdalene Revealed with Meggan Watterson

Listen on iTunes and Subscribe!

You know how some folks were raised to believe in one very specific set of beliefs and don’t ever question where that set of beliefs came from, who came up with them in the first place, and what greater motive getting a bunch of people to believe in those things might be serving?

And you know how everything everyone has ever told us came from another human being who has biases, is flawed, and has impacted that knowledge in some way so there’s really no such thing as “pure truth” coming from someone else?

I want you to know something:

No one else can tell you what’s true. You have to learn to source the truth from within.

Learning how to do this will be the single most important skill you’ve ever invested time in mastering.

It will save you time making decisions. (Did you know that the average person spends 7 hours and 36 minutes deliberating about their choices every week?)

It will ensure you always do the right thing for your highest purpose.

It will guarantee miracles in your life because your inner truth can orchestrate magic in a way that your ego couldn’t even fathom.

There is a person who lives from the truth she hears within more than any human being I’ve ever met, and I’m so blessed to call her one of my very best friends.

She’s a scholar, a theologian, one of the wackiest dancers I’ve ever seen, a total comedian without meaning to be one, a fierce mother, a deeply generous friend, and the author of the game changing book, Mary Magdalene Revealed: The First Apostle, Her Feminist Gospel & the Christianity We Haven’t Tried Yet.

I can’t believe it’s taken us this long to have Meggan on The Kate & Mike Show, but I know that we were saving ourselves for the very conversation I have for you today.

As she always does, Meggan gave us all of her mind, body, heart, and soul as she shared the depths of her own personal journey to find what was missing in the Christianity she was raised with, how she discovered Mary Magdalene, and the healing journey she’s been leading to champion the Christianity we haven’t tried yet.

In today’s episode you’ll hear:

  • The truth about the Bible and what was purposefully left out of it (and why)
  • The path to truly know God (hint: it’s not what you think)
  • What happened to all of the women in Christianity and how we can bring them back
  • How to know the difference between the voice of fear and the voice of your intuition
  • How the metaphor of resurrection can inform our own daily transformations
  • A new meaning of the word “death” that opens up profound possibilities for new ways of living
  • How to connect with the eternal while living in the confines of time and space in a human body
  • And so much more!

We have never had a conversation like this one on The Kate & Mike Show. Prepare to have your assumptions challenged, the beliefs that aren’t serving you shaken up, and to walk away from the episode holding the keys to access the very thing we’ve all been searching for the whole time.

    This podcast was just amazing. Religion is a delicate subject and you guys addressed it beautifully. Your guest is as passionate as knowledgeable. I immediately started following her and bought the book. I believe in Christ myself but always struggled with the way his teachings are taught. I believe there is so much more, especially love-related. I’m so glad I landed into this episode today. And BTW, almost finished with DO LESS. Great Book Kate. Now I’m only allowing what brings joy and fulfillment, instead of what fills my To Do List, which by the way, I’m not sure I’m liking anymore.

      Thank you for listening in Laura! You will LOVE Meggan’s book. I think it’s so important that we spread the word about what’s been left out of Christianity. And also so thrilled that you love Do Less!

    • Kate Northrup

      Laura – thank you for listening in and I’m so glad Meggan’s message resonates with you. She is one powerful woman. And thank you for diving into Do Less, too! So glad you’re here!
