Following myths from ancient India and Ireland Meade weaves together cosmology, psychology, philosophy, and poetry in order to open the soul's vision and catch the fish of wisdom. Rather than being abstract knowledge, "embodied wisdom" is shown to be both immediate and eternal, both spiritual and soulful.
Using the "inner eyes of the soul," Meade looks behind the great conflicts of modern culture and uncovers hidden connections between youth and the elders. Using poetry and wit, he makes the case for the necessity of a meaningful life and the authenticity of each soul. Using cogent ideas from the East and the West, he brings a soulful sense of wisdom back to life.
"Wisdom combines the spontaneous with the eternal, the personal with the universal, the practical with the symbolic, and unites soul with spirit. Inner wisdom fosters emotional intelligence, reveals unique visions, and keeps the soul lively at any age."
