The book sample focuses on the chapter “Inner Eyes of the Soul” which includes a story of an orphan left behind by his tribe, who then unexpectedly has a radical awakening experience that leads to a vision that affects everyone in the tribe. The commentary by the author includes autobiographical material as well as psychological ideas about each person’s “orphan self.”

This episode completes the trilogy on the issues of awakening from emotional and psychic spells.  Michael Meade tells the ancient Celtic myth of Cerridwen, the great Goddess and Gwion Bach, the orphan who becomes enlightened. The story opens up the expansive realm of the goddess as Great Mother and Mother Nature.  The ancient tale reveals that hidden beneath where spells fall can be found the surprising ground of inspiration and revelation.

In the second of a 3-part podcast on breaking spells and considering territories of the feminine, Michael Meade delves deeper into the story of The Half–giantess.  Psychologically, this story stirs the "mother complex", the great complexity in which the archetypal mother overlaps and can become fused with the human mother. Unless the spells between mother and child are broken, a person cannot learn who they are in life or discover what the world requires of them.

How men view mothers, as well as the feminine within them, can affect an entire culture.  Denying the presence and importance of the inner feminine leads men to undervalue women and be dismissive of the importance of the feminine in all areas of life.

Michael Meade tells an ancient, provocative story of the Half-giantess, who keeps a forbidding lake of sorrows and a boiling cauldron of angers and fears. The story opens a consideration of ways in which the human psyche can become spellbound. This leads to a discussion of neurotic conditions and psychosomatic states which can befall anyone.  In mythic terms, solutions for these ancient spells as well as current psychological conditions require going, consciously and directly into the place of the spellbound area.

On this episode, a replay of a popular episode from 2 years ago Michael Meade, examines the differences between spirit and soul. After describing how spirit rises like air and fire and soul descends like water and earth, he turns to the struggle of spirit and soul in each human life. Secretly, spirit and soul are trying to come together, to unite, but it’s usually the depth of soul that’s missing. By growing more soul each person can become a unique example of the middle ground of creation where spirit can descend and soul can rise.
