Mary Magdalene was not a harlot


When you hear "Mary Magdalene", chances are one of the phrases that immediately come to mind is "prostitute" or "reformed prostitute". But nowhere in the Bible is she identified as a prostitute. In fact, it is much more likely that she was a strong woman. There were quite a few of those in the early Church. But then, later, as Christianity became more mainstream, the men in power didn't know what to make of uppity women. Or, actually, they did. Hence the framing of Mary Magdalene.

What does this have to do with mindfulness? It takes a little pause to stop blindly following our preconceived notions, or the cultural cliches that are so omnipresent that we are not even aware that they are just cultural cliches.
