On this episode, Michael Meade explores the origins of mentoring. Weaving old stories and insightful anecdotes, he describes how mentoring naturally engages youth in the work of culture, but also becomes the basis for converting the "olders" into elders. Mentoring is an archetypal activity that has timeless elements which can connect us to the universal ground where nature renews itself and culture becomes reimagined. Meade suggests that powerful mentoring moments arise when authenticity is present and our natural instinct and inborn genius are brought to bear.

NEW AUDIO BOOK by Michael Meade
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.
