Bridging the Stories: a conversation with Elizabeth Cunningham
There has been so much written about both the real and the symbolic Mary Magdalene. What might those stories have to teach us today? Where does the old and the new intersect? I’ll be diving deeply into that with my guest today, author Elizabeth Cunningham. Stay tuned for something very special.
- The power of "going into the dark"
- The bridge between the stories of the Bible and the stories of other cultures
- Why her character, Maeve, has taken on a life of her own and how she is relevant today
- Encountering the Divine as female
- How we ARE the Earth
- Developing an eye and an ear and a heart for beauty.
Elizabeth Cunningham is the descendant of nine generations of Episcopal priests. She grew up hearing rich (sometimes terrifying) liturgical and biblical language. When she was not in church or school, she read fairy tales and fantasy novels or wandered in the enchanted wood of an overgrown, abandoned estate next door to the rectory. Her religious background, the magic of fairy tales, and the numinous experience of nature continue to inform her work.
Elizabeth is best known for The Maeve Chronicles, a series of award-winning novels featuring a feisty Celtic Magdalene. An ordained interfaith minister, she is in private practice as a counselor. She is the mother of grown children and lives with her husband in New York State’s Hudson Valley.
