This episode begins in the midst of the devastating fires that continue in the Amazon Rainforest and the catastrophic deluge resulting from Hurricane Dorian.
Michael Meade returns to the Amazon myth of the apparent destruction of the world in order to draw out the idea that in times of great change, the new order of life must be found in the depths of disorder that threatens the Earth.
Ancient myths of re-creation suggest that when humans have played a part in upsetting the balance of life and causing the degradation of nature, then humans must also have a part in helping to heal the Earth and revive her essential eco-systems.

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.
