BELLINGHAM, WA - Dec. 8 7pm
The modern world keeps losing the deep soul connections, leaving people at odds with each other, increasingly disconnected and often disheartened. Yet, when everything in the outside world tends to fall apart, the hidden unity inside life may be closer to the surface and calling for our attention. Even when everything breaks down the roots of soul know where to reconnect. When there is enough soul present we connect to the Soul to the World and become able to help both nature and culture to renew.
Join us for an evening of surprising ideas, a soulful and mythological view of current affairs and a resounding collective call to find unity in this time of conflict and confusion
BELLINGHAM, WA - Dec. 9 9:30 - 5:30
We live in the midst of extraordinary times and the human soul expects to find extraordinary experiences. For, each soul carries its own inner law or dharma; each has a calling to answer and a way of serving the world. Amidst radical changes in climate and in culture, creation wishes to continue, yet can only work through the souls of those alive at a given time. There may be no better time than these troubled times to learn the pattern set within the soul and claim the mythic thread that brought each of us to life.
This workshop will draw upon the redeeming functions of myth and ritual as vessels of imagination and regeneration that can open new ways to see the world and new paths to follow.
SEATTLE, WA - Nov. 30 7pm
PORT TOWNSEND, WA - Dec. 2 7pm
Join mythologist, storyteller and author Michael Meade for an inspiring evening of song, story, poetry and cultural commentary that sounds a call to find unity and wholeness in this time of conflict and upheaval.
The storms and tragedies of contemporary life can be termed a spiritual crisis in which we must find a greater sense of self or become more isolated and subject to increasing anxieties and feelings of helplessness. Amidst chaos and confusion, the soul instinctively seeks to awaken to and grow the original design that it carried to life to begin with.
The exact knowledge needed for healing and growth resides within the individual, waiting to be revealed through life-changing, initiatory events. When the world around us becomes dark and increasingly troubled, it is time to seek again the soul’s great adventure.
Seattle, WA - Dec. 20 7pm
As we approach the end of another year troubled by tragedy and marred by conflicts, the winter solstice offers a timely and symbolic opportunity to affirm our innate connection to the Soul of the World and the rhythms of life.
Solstice means “sun stands still” and the word planet means “wandering star.” Each year, as days grow shorter, the earth wanders into the dark womb of night. Ancient people imagined that the sun needed some conscious help from humans in order to avoid being swallowed by the chaos and darkness that ever nip at the edges of life.
In facing the darkness together we can find again our own divine spark and inner light as each soul can connect through ritual and song to the eternal light and the living Soul of the World as it pivots again towards the light.
“To be alive at this time means to be caught in the great unraveling that strands us near all the loose threads of creation; but it also means to be close to the revelation of the new design and the next paradigm. In facing up to the enormous problems of the world and accepting the troubles that knock on our doors, we can better learn what hidden resources, deep resolves, and surprising designs we have hidden within us.”
- Michael Meade, "Why the World Doesn't End"
