“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.” So says, Michael Meade on this episode, drawn from a recent radio interview. Starting with the intrigues of both spirit and soul, the conversation turns to ways to navigate the maze of life when the world seems to go upside down and truth becomes hard to find. Using many insights from mythic imagination, Meade offers medicines and antidotes to the current conditions of the world. He also warns, “Either we are following spirit and growing more soul or we can find ourselves shrinking from life.”

The old idea is that when tragedy strikes or when an obstacle blocks us, there are only two possibilities. We either become a smaller person or we become a bigger person. If it’s a real life change you cannot come out the same. So therefore, you’re either going to come out smaller or you are going to rise up and ultimately come out of it a bigger person.
