“There is nothing more confining than the prison we don’t know we are in” – Shakespeare
One way of recognizing the prison we are currently in is to see how the world is made smaller as those who happen to hold power try to reduce the world while at the same time using “big lies” in order to dominate it. Michael Meade reminds us that we are citizens of two worlds, one being the daily world now troubled by growing oppositions and intensifying conflicts, and the other being the realm of the soul with its capacity for imagination, understanding and wisdom. We must draw on the deep resources of the human soul to make the world bigger again.
We are now being called upon to vote for truth and meaning and genuine understanding at the level of the daily world; but we are also being called to vote from the depths of our souls for a bigger world that brings nature and culture back together and awakens the many ways we each can contribute to the healing of both.

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.
