Holding the Thread of Life

23.95

This live recording offers a lively presentation, begins with the idea that the rattling of institutions and the increasing threats of violence and terrorism are part of what can be termed a "Slow Apocalypse". Instead of a sudden "apocalyptic" ending, there is an extended period in which the fabric of culture wears thin and the common world is diminished. At root, "apocalypse" means "lifting the veil," and Meade peeks behind the smoke screens of modern culture to reveal something trying to break into awareness.

As many things become "uncovered," ancient and forgotten things become re-discovered. By turning to ancient traditions, including the Native American myth Why the World Doesn't End, Meade pulls surprising threads of inspiration and meaning from the unraveling of the contemporary world. From the darkest issues of the day, there emerge threads of individual purpose from which we can begin to weave elements of cultural and natural renewal. Challenging and full of surprises, this tour de force connects current events with mythic insights.

Themes Include: The Thread of Life • Lifting the Veil • Why the World Doesn’t End • The Slow Apocalypse • The Golden Thread
