Manage episode 299226077 series 2799527
Greek mythology has a full pantheon of gods and goddesses. Each deity has a story line with the past and present clearly defined. There are stories of triumph and petty jealousies. There are stories of conflict. Their relationships with humans and other gods are often tempestuous. Rarely do we see these gods and goddesses as exemplars. More often than not, they teach the audience what not to do and who not to be. In this episode, the storyteller, Kathy Shimpock, shares stories of the Greek goddesses - Hera, Athena, and Demeter. When does the crone make an appearance in their stories? What does it have to show us about the power of the crone in our lives today?
