Chaos, Climate and Creation - An Evening with Michael Meade
This is a past event. Wednesday, October 9 at 7:00pm 9:00pm
First Unitarian Church 1211 S.W. Main St., Portland, Oregon
Join renowned author, mythologist and storyteller Michael Meade for an evening of myths of renewal, tales of transformation and a resounding call to find unity and wholeness in this time of conflict and confusion.
As the chaos in the world increases, most ideas of the future become fatalistic. Yet, the situation only seems “hopeless” when viewed from the narrow logic of a collapsing world view. Old ways of seeing the world are blocking more vital paths of imagination, vision and healing.
The point is not simply evolution or progress, rather there needs to be a collective rite of passage that transforms our world view. Transformation is required to move us from despair and overwhelm to awakening and imagination; we are either on the way to transformation or on the road to greater tragedy.
The agony of the earth calls for each of us to defeat the growing alienation and isolation of life in order to become more human and be more present. The issue is not the pretension of “saving the planet,” but rather finding deeper ways of serving the earth.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
