This episode begins with the idea that at the end of an era everyone can feel older than they are and weighted down by the world. Michael Meade seeks for some deep medicine for our current troubles in ancient stories that tell about listening to the inner bird of spirit and practicing the idea of "dancing to be young again". An old story from Africa shows the radical difference between the wise old woman who helps people connect to the song of their soul and the negative elder who promises people they can have whatever they think they deserve without having to transform their lives.

This episode considers the importance of planting trees in a ritual manner that can help reduce climate anxiety, while also building a greater sense of human community. Michael Meade describes how creative rituals can deepen people’s commitment to the difficult work of healing both culture and nature. He points out the lack of wisdom in thinking that there can be a single solution for the long standing, complex issues that drive the climate crisis. Ritual can provide ways to connect the mind and the heart and reconnect us to the sacredness of life and the ongoing story of creation.
