Author Biography

In 1998, I graduated in Psychology and Philosophy, hoping to pursue a career in psychology to help people heal. However, at that time, I felt I was not ready to serve in this capacity because I felt like something was missing. So I entered the corporate arena and worked in the media industry for 10 years.

All this changed in 2007 when I came across the Past Life Regression Academy. Combining proven real world psychotherapeutic techniques with holistic spiritual tools and philosophies, I was introduced to a modality that enabled deep diving into myself and my international clients for complete mind, body, spirit transformation. In 2012, I became a certified international trainer of the Past Life Regression Academy, training regression therapists in UK, US, Australia and Singapore.

I have authored a series of books that enable us to challenge the veils of illusion and to see the deeper aspects. My first book, Shrouded Truth offers new testimonials about the life of Christ through the past life accounts of eight individuals, backed by academic research. Following this vein, my second book, The Magdalene Lineage – Past Life Journeys into Sacred Feminine Mysteries, offers deep insight and inspiration into the Empowerment of the Divine Feminine. The third book, Divine Consciousness, challenges us to look deeply into our inner core and unveil the biggest shrouded truth of them all – our own glorious divinity.

For those who want to explore feminine spirituality and past life revelations, this book will certainly fascinate and inform you. The life of Mary Magdalene has been enveloped in mystery for two thousand years; sometimes vilified and other times honored for her role in the earliest days of Christianity. Through past life regressions conducted by the author, Mary Magdalene’s life is revealed. As a child, she had healing powers and knowledge beyond her years. Her adult years, including marriage and children, enduring joys and sorrows, and teaching other women spiritual truths, are intriguing. The author also worked with a second woman, who had a past life as Tamar, Mary’s daughter. The Magdalene Lineage: Past Life Journeys into the Sacred Feminine Mysteries, written by renowned regression therapist Reena Kumarasingham, is a must-read for anyone who wants to learn about this legendary woman and her teachings.

One of the most poignant aspects of this book is the author’s thoughtful comparisons to other sources of information about Mary Magdalene and Tamar. She carefully portrayed the historical era, including the cultural and political climate. Her description of the Essenes matches other texts describing the beliefs and works of this group. She also adds the reasons why certain sects and the early Christian Church portrayed Mary Magdalene in derogatory terms, rather than as the spiritual teacher and healer she was. Although the book contains much historical data, it is easily read and understood by any curious reader. Author Reena Kumarasingham has written a well-crafted and intriguing text in The Magdalene Lineage: Past Life Journeys into the Sacred Feminine Mysteries. A wonderful book!

The Magdalene Lineage: Past Life Journeys into the Sacred Feminine Mysteries is a work of non-fiction focused on new age concepts such as spirituality, religious history and the nature of the divine, and was penned by author Reena Kumarasingham. The book uses the technique of regression therapy, in which the author is trained, to recount the spiritual lineage of the follower of Jesus, Mary Magdalene, and un-bury her from the mystique that history has laid upon her. In the author’s own expressions, we discover Mary in all her familial roles as a woman, but also as herself in her deepest heart, and the stories which inspire us to look to her as a kind of spiritual teacher.

Everyone expresses their spirituality in different ways, and I feel that both Christians and non-Christians can come to this book about Mary Magdalene with an open mind to consider the teachings that are proposed by it. Central mantras of putting good out into the world, and trusting in faith and belief, are well expressed through author Reena Kumarasingham, whose prose is filled with inspirational lexis and well-chosen expressions. The arrangement of the book itself gives a good progression and explains a little about the process of actually accessing the idea of past lives through regression therapy. For readers who are especially interested in this concept, Reena Kumarasingham writes with confidence and motivation about her craft. Overall, The Magdalene Lineage: Past Life Journeys into the Sacred Feminine Mysteries presents an interesting and uplifting perspective which is well worth exploring.

Insightful, thoughtful, and filled with spiritual depth, The Magdalene Lineage: Past Life Journeys into the Sacred Feminine Mysteries by Reena Kumarasingham takes a unique look at the life of one of the controversial characters in the gospels, Mary Magdalene, and explores the depth of her spirituality. The author takes readers on a spiritual odyssey and explores hidden gems of spirituality that looks at the role of women in the union with God. There is a lot to learn from Mary Magdalene as readers explore her life from the age of six, going through her arranged marriage, her break-away from an abusive marriage and her relationship with Jesus. The narrative moves on to present the conception of the child of Jesus and Mary. The narrative covers the events during and after the crucifixion, Mary Magdalene's adventures and the life of Sara, Mary Magdalene's daughter with Jesus.

This is a daring book; it is full of research and a powerful answer to some of the questions that Christians don’t even have the courage to ask. In this book, the author explores the life of one woman in the Bible and her relationship with Jesus, but she also goes on to examine the truths and stories that the Bible doesn’t allow us to see. Mary Magdalene is presented as a human being in her strengths and vulnerabilities and as an icon of feminine spirituality. Reena’s work makes me question everything I have learned about the Bible and encourages a dialogue that has been suppressed over the years by religious fanaticism and dogma. The Magdalene Lineage: Past Life Journeys into the Sacred Feminine Mysteries is a powerful call to Christian readers and a book that sustains the idea that there is far more to the Christian narrative than what is in the Scriptures. A very inspiring and eye-opening book.
