Join Michael Meade for a timely and inspiring evening event and workshop that addresses the conditions of the world from a mythic perspective and presents ideas from his new book The Genius Myth. Amidst the current political rhetoric and ideological battles, what keeps being lost is the uniqueness of the individual soul and the aims of the genius self which originally brought us to life. The idea of an inner genius seeking to awaken within each person can provide a refuge from chaos and an antidote to the increasing levels of fear and despair that can characterize the world.

"In many ways, people now long for the healing presence of myth without even knowing it. When the troubles get deep enough, when the problems become greater than us, when the weight of the world is on our shoulders, mythos can offer more imaginative ways to proceed than the narrow paths of logic and reason. Myth has its own logic and it makes most sense when the underlying sense of the world is being sought and when the enduring values and transcendent meanings of human life must be found again."
