Healing in a Divided World
If we can't imagine a creative, resilient core within us, there can be no consistent source of centering, no peace or resting place. As everything else seems to fall apart, the deep self is actually closer and seeking to become more consciously known. The trouble is that in seeking to know our true selves we must also touch our psychic wounds and face the divisions within us. Michael Meade shares myths, stories, and his thoughts which may help us find our footing and begin our healing.
In this session, you’ll discover:
- Myths and stories that relate to the Earth's healing and "re-creation"
- A new perspective on damage and trauma
- Going beyond the edge of what we already know and into the dark, in order to identify and accept the issues and begin our healing
