Banyen's Description: 

Michael Meade is a street-smart storyteller, drummer, mythologist and mentor of many. His newest book, The Genius Myth delivers potent medicine.

Genius points to something deeply ingrained, markedly original, and ultimately transcendent in human nature. Although widely accepted in traditional cultures, the idea that genius is an original spirit residing in each soul causes problems in modern societies based upon objectivity, rationality, and scientific methods. Modern people tend to talk about things that are useful to them without realizing that the most useful thing in the world is to know who you are at the core of your life and what you are intended to serve in this world.

Each person born participates in the genius of life and the world at this time is in great need of an awakening of the genius qualities hidden in each of us. In this view genius refers, not to measurable intelligence, but to the essential “uniqueness” of each person and the gifts and talents that form the core of their inner life. The presence of genius marks each person, regardless of age, gender orientation, ethnicity or social status as being essentially distinct and automatically valuable.

In a rapidly changing world faced with seemingly impossible problems, it becomes important to understand that each person has something to contribute to the solutions. Rather than the need to heroically save the world, the real work of humanity at this time may be to awaken the unique spark and inner resiliency of genius within each person.

Both timely and timeless, this book is essential for anyone who seeks to awaken their own genius and learn how it can help heal nature and reimagine culture. This book will help young people hoping to find a meaningful way in the world and adults wanting to dwell more deeply in life. It offers essential ideas for parents and teachers, counselors and mentors seeking to encourage and support those they teach and care about.  The Genius Myth is essential reading for anyone searching for a true orientation in the midst of a world gone wrong.

The culmination of decades of work with at-risk youth and at-risk people, Michael Meade’s book about the genius myth as well as associated events and workshops combine dramatic real life experiences with compelling mythic tales and a profound exploration of the wisdom of genius.

Also by Michael Meade are The Water of Life, Why the World Doesn`t End and many fine audio CD recordings, such as Holding the Thread of Life and Fate and Destiny.
