Michael Meade responds to the current international climate talks and recent alarming reports on climate change by turning to the old teaching story of the blind men who encounter an elephant. In this case, the elephant represents the overwhelming challenge of global warming and climate change that can make any of us feel numb, blind and helpless. After considering some of the literal problems, Meade turns to the psychological dilemmas that accompany the huge challenges we face and then takes the issue to a deeper level of myth and imagination in order to find new ways of seeing the crisis and envisioning ways forward.

Awakening the Soul addresses the issue of the loss of soul throughout the world and the loss of meaning and truth in modern life. Michael Meade shows how meaning is essential to the human soul and uses ancient stories and compelling insights to describe how soul can be recovered and people can learn to “live in truth.”
Drawing from dramatic episodes in his own life, Meade shows how the soul tries to awaken at critical times, and how an awakened soul is crucial for finding medicine to treat the ailments and alienation of modern life. What we need now is not a minor repair, but a major transformation of the world that can only start with the awakening of the individual soul.
