This episode of Living Myth begins with a Native American story of the origin of healing rituals.  In telling the tale Michael Meade emphasizes a remarkable point in the story when knowledge, healing and songs all enter the world at the same time.  The songs become central elements in the original healing ritual which brings those that are sick or wounded to the center of the community.  Having established the importance of healing songs, Meade introduces an excerpt from Mosaic’s new recording “A Song is a Road”.  The podcast concludes with a chorus singing a song of praise and gratitude to the healing energy of the Earth.

The ancient idea was that songs can carry what words fail to express, but also that songs can transport us to the otherworld where healing, restoration and renewal can be found.
