This episode begins with a description of three layers of crisis in the world: the global climate crisis that affects all creatures on Earth, the humanitarian crisis of social justice, economic disparity and varieties of bigotry, and the underlying crisis of the loss of truth and meaning in life. As Michael Meade states, "All three crises are happening at the same time, and sometimes they all appear as headlines in the same news report." That happened recently when the Annual Arctic Report appeared alongside the release of secret documents about the war in Afghanistan, at the same time as the impeachment of the U. S. president was announced.
In order to address the depth of troubles we all face, Meade reveals the deeper meanings of the key words crisis and corruption, then turns to ancient notions of transformation and metanoia to find a soulful response to collective troubles of humanity and the world.
