Elizabeth Ann Curran was born Patricia Elizabeth Lambert at Grace Maternity Hospital in Toronto, Ontario on January 29, 1953 to Marilyn Joan (nee Huson) and Harold Ernest Lambert. She moved to the Lower Mainland of British Columbia on September 8, 1973 and has continued to live there, most recently moving to Langley in the Spring of 2011.
In the Summer of 2012 she changed her given names to Elizabeth Ann and, on October 27, 2012, she married Douglas Harold Curran (Doug) and took his surname, thereby eradicating entirely her former name, although this was in no way an attempt to disguise or hide herself from anyone or any organization, as evidenced by the fact that her former name is stated above.
Elizabeth worked in administration at Simon Fraser University for 13 years before moving to the BC Teachers’ Federation where she was for over 20 years, eventually becoming the in-house copy editor for that organization. In 2007 she was diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis and placed on long-term disability; she subsequently qualified for the Canada Pension Plan Disability Pension.
Elizabeth’s other pursuits have included over 30 years in amateur community theatre, primarily at SFU and in Deep Cove on Vancouver’s North Shore, and close to 40 years as a practising witch and devout Wiccan. She has taught First-year Wiccan Religion, both online and in-person, on many occasions, to students in locales as widely diverse as Australia, England, and Israel. Currently, she facilitates two Meetup groups in Langley.
In addition, Elizabeth has pursued a life-long interest in consciousness studies and the pursuit of wisdom as a concept; what it means, what it consists of, and how one acquires it. She has isolated several key principles of wisdom and has long contemplated turning her copious notes into a class or a book, in order to share her discoveries. Perhaps they’ll turn up on this blog–stay tuned!
