This four CD set addresses the issue of change from the depths of the soul. Themes and stories range from the deeply personal to the broadly cultural and brightly mythical. Mythologist Meade places the human soul at the center of change when it comes to healing both culture and nature. For, he declares soul to be: the secret agent of change, the glue of the world, the intimacy of Eros as well as the connection to the divine. Change, so greatly desired, is not easily accomplished because genuine change requires that one's whole life be altered; mind and body, spirit and soul. Such transformations involve facing obstacles and loss as well as finding new ways to proceed. When it comes to making meaningful changes the missing ingredient is usually the soul. Drawing on a variety of traditions, Meade depicts how the modern world keeps losing the soul connection, leaving many feeling disconnected and disheartened. Yet, he also shows how times of trouble and darkness can precipitate surprising soul-making.
