Initiation and the Soul

The Sacred and the Profane
Spoken Word CD
November, 2006
$32.50 CAD
Banyen's Description: 

Initiation is the way the soul grows and finds its unique way. Using traditional myths, storyteller Michael Meade shows the three steps of initiation: separation, ordeals and the conscious return. The full incarnation of the soul involves both ascents and descents, climbing the ladders of wisdom and descending to the depths of love and healing. Through the dual lenses of myth and depth psychology initiation is viewed as the background for understanding meaningful change, radical healing and the loss of the sacred.

Instead of nature and culture being opposed, Meade shows how the sacred is found where they come together. For the awakened soul, the world becomes a place of possible epiphany where ‘little redemptions’ can occur. Initiation reveals the sacredness of life and shatters the divisive spells of the mundane and profane. In this study of the soul, imagination becomes the central power which turns early traumas and twists of fate from victimization to initiation.

In addition to many audio CDs, Michael Meade is also author of The Water of Life: Initiation and the Tempering of the Soul.
