The Soul of Transformation

Video with

Michael Meade speaks so beautifully about the role of “descent” in any spiritual journey. “The spirit rises like air and the soul descends like water.” Many on a spiritual path get attached to the rising of the spirit and forget that embodied wisdom comes only after we have descended to the depths of our soul.

“Without the lift and the light of spirit, the soul can become too heavy, sodden with earthiness, too tragic or stuck in the mud to move anything forward. Without the shading of soul, what could become wise can become way too sure of itself, too certain of the way and too blinded by the light.”

Listen to Michael Meade answer Zaya's burning questions: What has gone wrong with our world? What has led to the current polycrisis humanity is facing? How can myth and ancient stories help us understand and be with the current human and existential crisis? Can you share a story or ancient wisdom for times of Crisis? Are myths like ancient codes, archetypes that still live today in our psyche? Is crisis always spiritual in nature? Is there also a creative power in destruction? Do you see this as a moment of initiation? If so, to what? How do we prepare ourselves?

This talk is hosted by Maurizio & Zaya Benazzo.
