Chaos, Climate and Creation: Transformation and Renewal on Earth – an evening with Michael Meade

November 21 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join renowned author, mythologist and storyteller Michael Meade for an evening of myths of renewal, tales of transformation, and a call to find unity in this time of conflict and confusion.  As the chaos in the world increases, most ideas of the future become fatalistic. Yet, the situation only seems “hopeless” when viewed from the narrow logic of a collapsing world view. Old ways of seeing the world are blocking more vital paths of imagination, vision and healing.

The point is not simply evolution or progress, rather there needs to be a collective rite of passage that transforms our world view. Transformation is required to move us from despair and overwhelm to awakening and imagination. We are either on the way to transformation or on the road to greater tragedy.

The agony of the earth calls for each of us to defeat the growing alienation and isolation of life in order to become more human and be more present. The issue is not the pretension of “saving the planet,” but rather finding deeper ways of serving the earth.

This world, despite all its troubles, remains a place of ongoing creation. Yet, creation can only work through the souls of those alive at a given time. What we learn from mythic stories and imagination is how our human nature can make us part of the ground of being and the vital pulse of the living world.

 “Climate change and eco-degradation can become the context in which the core values of humanity become redeemed rather than lost.”   – Michael Meade
