On this episode, Michael Meade shows how a dream can be diagnostic and prescriptive, as well as predictive. A dream of facing a threatening series of waves leads to a consideration of living in a “liminal space” created when a flood tide of changes strikes both nature and culture at the same time.

Denying the extreme conditions troubling the world at this time does not stop the waves of change crashing all around us. And thinking or feeling that we cannot handle it does not spare us from the effects that penetrate, alter and rattle us personally as well as collectively.

Part of the prescription for surviving times of radical change involves learning how to bend and bow when facing overwhelming changes coming from the outside. Another part involves finding our own inner rhythm, natural way of being and genuine way of seeing when the world around us suffers waves of change and repeated upheaval.

On this excerpt from a premium episode, Michael Meade follows a myth from ancient Ireland and weaves together cosmology, psychology and philosophy 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.
