SPECIAL EVENTS with Michael Meade
Join mythologist and storyteller Michael Meade for a series of workshops and evening events this fall.
Tickets: $15 :: Time: 7:00 pm
Meaning is essential to the human soul and the current loss of meaning and denial of truth imperils the heart and soul of human culture. This is an event about the necessity of meaning and making soul at a time when the world seems to be losing its soul.
Using ancient stories and compelling insights, Michael Meade shows how soul can be recovered and people can learn to “live in truth.” Living in truth involves the vitality of the soul, the core powers of imagination, and the ancient inheritance of humanity. Changes at the level of the individual soul can generate the collective energy needed to change the conditions of the world.

At each significant crossroads and crisis in life the hidden inheritance of the soul tries to enter the world through us. Each person has a living truth to contribute to the world. The problem is that the pathways of awakening are blocked by received ideas, early life traumas and over- adaptation to the needs of others.
All meaningful growth and genuine healing requires that we clarify and intensify our connections to the deep self and soul within us. Each visit to the center of our deep self is a new beginning and a further initiation of the path of the soul.
Living consciously and mindfully means finding creative ways to deliver, to a world ruled by scarcity and fear, the living truth of our lives and the inner abundance of the soul.

Ancient people relied on myth and ritual to heal the wounds of culture and draw upon the renewing energies of nature. Myth and ritual touch the entire person, spirit and mind, body and soul. In the eye of the soul nature and culture are secretly woven together, so that working with one requires engaging the other.
There may be no better time to reclaim and relearn the ancient arts of myth and ritual in order to assist with the healing of nature and the renewal of culture.
