“We answer the roaring of the world with the roar of awakening from inside ourselves,” says Michael Meade. In answering the frequently asked question, “Why does a person have to find the thread of their life?” he tells an ancient teaching story from Africa that addresses how to find a path of meaning and purpose during this time of great upheaval. The story suggests that only in facing our fears can we find some safety and a way through the obstacles before us. Weaving together stories, anecdotes and an exploration of collective and individual initiation, Meade speaks to how awakening to oneself is not simply about ourselves, but rather, a transformation that connects us to deeper community and the Soul of the World.
