Join Michael Meade in Mill Valley for an evening that will seek the healing energies of both spirit and soul through the territories of story, poetry and song.
Increasing tensions throughout the world pit the effects of modern culture against the instinctive practice of becoming a genuine individual. Yet, the heart of the human drama concerns whether we are becoming a greater vessel for the flow of life. Either we are following spirit and growing more soul or we can find ourselves shrinking from life.
The struggle to grow and live fully must involve descent as well as ascent. Downward movement personalizes and upward movement eternalizes. Thus, the genuine way is made by answering both the call to spirit and the pull of soul. Spirit continually calls us to awaken to a greater sense of self, while soul would have us connect more deeply to the world.
The growing sense of chaos and disorientation makes it more essential that we find ways of making meaning and bringing healing to the world. In the long run, genuine transformation is the secret aim of all the tensions and troubles we encounter. In the depths of the soul we are each an old soul able to survive the troubles of the world, and also able to contribute to its healing and renewal.
When in touch with the soul’s mythic thread we can find the arts and practices, the aims and meanings that allow our souls to grow deeper, our imagination to expand and our spirits to awaken.
Doors open at 6:30 pm
