Initiation And The Soul Sample Track - Agents of Epiphany by Michael Meade published on 2017-09-29T23:40:56Z Using traditional myths, Meade shows the three steps of initiation: separation, ordeals, and the conscious return to community. Initiation is the way the soul grows and finds its unique project in life. Initiation requires 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 becomes the ideal context for understanding anxiety and add=iction, death and divorce, illness and healing. In this study of the "awakened soul" imagination becomes the essential power which can turn painful traumas and twists of fate from victimization to initiation. As "agents of epiphany," Meade shows how each of us brings medicine to the world and how the sacred is found where nature and human culture come together."
