The Wisdom of Spirit and Soul - an evening with Michael Meade at the Fremont Abbey 4272 Fremont Ave N, Seattle, WA 98103
Seeking Spirit, Making Soul
The heart of the human drama concerns whether we are becoming a greater vessel for the flow of life. Either we are following spirit and growing more soul or we can find ourselves shrinking from life. Spirit calls us to awaken to a greater sense of self, while soul would have us connect more deeply to the living world.
Embodied wisdom is shown to be both immediate and eternal, both spiritual and soulful. Weaving ideas from the East and the West, Meade brings a soulful sense of wisdom to a troubled world.
Join renowned author and mythologist Michael Meade for an evening seeking the healing energies of both spirit and soul through the territories of story, poetry and song.
A genuine path involves answering the call of spirit and following the pull of soul. When in touch with the soul’s mythic thread we can find the aims and practices that allow our spirits to awaken and souls to grow deeper.
