EXECUTIVE PRODUCER Amy Kellum met Meinrad Craighead in the late 1990s while involved with a group at Duke University that was exploring Women's Spirituality. She was so taken with Craighead's knowledge of ancient spirituality and its effect on our modern ideas about God that she signed up for one of the artist’s workshops in New Mexico. She began videotaping Craighead's lectures in 2002 and has completed a Certificate in Documentary Studies at Duke based on her work with the artist.
