In this episode, Michael Meade explores the origins of mentoring. Weaving old stories and insightful anecdotes, he describes how mentoring naturally engages youth in the work of culture, but also becomes the basis for converting the "olders" into elders. Mentoring is an archetypal activity that has timeless elements which can connect us to the universal ground where nature renews itself and culture becomes reimagined. Meade suggests that powerful mentoring moments arise when authenticity is present and our natural instinct and inborn genius are brought to bear.
