with Michael Meade
an unique online webinar on Sept 26
We live in a radical time, amidst severe climate changes, the expansion of human tragedy and the growth of collective fear and anxiety. Yet, the great crises of the world do not take place outside the human soul. Rather, history is made in the struggle of the individual soul to survive and make sense of the world no matter how dark things may become.
When everything seems about to fall apart, something deep in the soul of humanity responds. This inner inheritance includes both deep instincts for survival and surprising capacities for renewal. In mythic terms, each soul is connected to the Soul of the World and each person is pregnant with meaning and an innate genius waiting to express itself.
In the struggle for meaning and truth it becomes necessary to call upon the array of genius, talents, and abilities hidden in people of all ages. Only then can we help balance nature and heal culture.
Michael Meade, D.H.L., is a renowned storyteller, author, and scholar of mythology, anthropology, and psychology. He combines hypnotic storytelling, street-savvy perceptiveness, and spellbinding interpretations of ancient myths with a deep knowledge of cross-cultural rituals. He has an unusual ability to distill and synthesize these disciplines, tapping into ancestral sources of wisdom and connecting them to the stories we are living today
He is the author of The Genius Myth, Fate and Destiny: The Two Agreements of The Soul, Why the World Doesn’t End, The Water of Life: Initiation and the Tempering of the Soul; editor, with James Hillman and Robert Bly, of Rag and Bone Shop of the Heart; and editor of Crossroads: A Quest for Contemporary Rites of Passage.
