The Great Dance Sample Track - The Dust of Creation by Michael Meade published on 2017-09-01T19:25:49Z When the certainty of the world collapses around us, the danger of cynicism, isolation, and becoming numb inevitably increases. Following a Native American myth that tells how healing ceremonies and artful practices began, this exciting live recording offers ways to find and sustain a "bigger life." In mythic terms, each person seeks to enter the Great Dance of Life, also called the "big medicine." In this view of the ongoing dance of life, emotions are repeated invitations to the dance; both "divine influxes” and emphatic guides intended to awaken each person and connect us all to the deep Self and to the Soul of the World. Healing and growth require that we change, and artful practices offer authentic ways to expand how we are woven into the world. From acute cultural critique to insights into ancient practices, Meade provides fuel for artists, seekers, social activists, teachers and innovators of all kinds.
