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.
