In this podcast we talk to Elinor Predota about story telling, being a pagan and why listening matters so much when you want to both tell stories and work for social justice.
Elinor is a storyteller, singer, Priestess, Interfaith Minister, thinker, activist and artist. She’s also a spoonie, a Marxist and intersectional feminist, a mystic, a Witch, a geek, and an out and proud, queer bisexual dyke.
She lives in the hills of southern Scotland with her partner and their big, fluffy dog, Mischa. Much of the time, she can be found knitting or crocheting, watching Star Trek or My Little Pony, baking gluten free goodies, singing to the land and its spirits, and cuddling with her pack.
She is constantly fascinated by uncovering what is, and discovering and creating what could be. Her work with others involves the creation and telling of stories; one to one work; retreats, classes and workshops; and the magic of ritual and ceremony.
All of what Elinor does is rooted in the practice of deep presence and listening, creating a welcoming space in which all feelings, all perspectives, all identities, all responses and reactions — whether expected or unexpected, pleasant or challenging — may find a home, and where experiences and lives may be transformed. This is her small contribution to the liberation of all beings.
