Mary Magdalene and a New Power Archetype
Have you ever wondered about mythic figures and who they really are? I love how stories inspire you to stretch beyond the status quo. It's no big surprise to yearn for more tidbits and insights from people (real or fictional) who pull you into a greater arc of experience.
Think back to a time when you discovered someone who really motivated you to be more than you ever thought before? In my case, it was Ms. Susan Tereski, my high school history teacher. She introduced me to reading long epics (usually 700 to 1,000 pages). It seems like such a small thing. It wasn't. It pulled me beyond who I thought I was. That's a great discovery at any age, let alone at 14 years old. I credit Ms. Tereski with planting the seed of excellence and giving me a certainty beyond my comfort zone.
In the same way, the story of Mary Magdalene has been with me since childhood. I was raised Roman Catholic. The story of Mary Magdalene, as presented to me in childhood, fell short of my own sense of Mary. It seemed to me there was so much more to the story. There are many others that feel the same and several books have crossed my hands across the years giving more texture and form to my inner inklings.
I have the pleasure to be connected to many amazing visionaries and creative artists. My friend and colleague, Gina-Dianne Harding, is one of these amazing folks. She's currently in the throes of writing her 3rd book, a fantasy novel about Mary Magdalene. In her writing, she's come across some interesting revelations – nothing new for writers who often foretell of things to come – about Mary and a new power archetype.
In our Wild Creatrix Cafe chat we explore:
- a new power archetype
- how to navigate the creative adventure
- how to expand into the beyond for anything and everything (including storylines)
- a visualization with Mary guided by Gina-Dianne Harding.
The guided visualization with Mary is at 25:35.
