“It is the same to live in a tragic time as to be in a tragic place.”  - Traditional

Michael Meade begins with the latest tragic shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh. He then moves to the procession of poverty and oppression travelling from Central America and the troubling election of a would be dictator in Brazil.  At that point, Meade tries to answer an impassioned question posed by a young person, “How do we keep from losing all hope?”  In discussing hope and despair, Meade reminds us that “wisdom begins where simple hopes run out and where despair darkens our sight.”  He concludes by imagining where the deepest resources of the human soul reside and where the hidden unity of life can be found again.

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.
