Human beings are meaning-making animals

We take in information from the world around us through our senses, and — individually and collectively — we transform that information into narrative. We turn the world around us into stories, and often enough we turn the stories we tell ourselves into reality.

Which is to say, we make magic.

Stories are the everyday magic by which we weave together our lives, our communities, and our societies. The power of that magic can be wielded consciously or unconsciously, for private benefit or collective upliftment, for good or for ill.

I’m Elinor Predota

I am fascinated by stories: the stories we tell each other, and the stories we tell ourselves; those stories that we know we are telling, and those that we don’t.

I have followed this fascination into three main areas:

  • storytelling ‘eye to eye, mind to mind, and heart to heart’;
  • creating songs, poems, and art;
  • the magic of spirituality, healing, and ritual.

For details of workshops and events, mentoring in magic, and to buy stuff I create, take a meander around this website.
