On Sunday, July 17th, I’ll be joined by renowned storyteller, author, and scholar of mythology, anthropology, and psychology, Michael Meade, for a dialogue entitled: The World is in Trouble and it Needs Your Genius.
Michael combines hypnotic storytelling, street-savvy perceptiveness, and spellbinding interpretations of ancient myths with a deep knowledge of cross-cultural rituals. He has an unusual ability to distill and synthesize these disciplines, tapping into ancestral sources of wisdom and connecting them to the stories we are living today.
He says that when the world is churning — from our outer atmosphere and institutions to our inner tempests — wildness is unleashed. What scares us also calls to our depths, where our genius resides. Deep sea creatures of the psyche — hatreds and fears and huge forces, threaten to engulf us.
On Sunday, we’ll be exploring Michael’s idea that though the news is troubling, it may be that our troubles are of the “right kind.” They may be calling to the souls of each of us in ways we can learn to listen to and hear.
Another root meaning of apocalypse (the Greek word “apocalypsis”) is “to lift the veil.” What happens when the web of life loosens, when the veils lift? Old structures and systems may collapse or fall apart, but new energies and patterns may be given a chance to come forward.
What does that mean for each of us personally?
Michael suggests that in a rapidly changing world faced with seemingly impossible problems, it becomes important to understand that each person has something to contribute to the solutions. Each of us carries a unique way of seeing the world, a unique way of being and moving and communicating ourselves.
We don’t come into the world empty. Each of us brings a unique genius, a gift to the world. There is something seeded in each of us, waiting to be awoken, ready to lead us on the path to our true identity and our true purpose in life. Each person has meaning and value already inside them, ready to aid in healing this chaotic world.
There is no one “right” solution for the great number of problems in the world. Instead, there are many solutions waiting to be awakened in each person. Each person born participates in the genius of life.
I hope you’ll join us on Sunday. Our world is now in great need of an awakening of the genius qualities hidden in each of us, including you.
