Character and Destiny, featuring James Hillman and Michael Meade. Recorded live at Seattle Art Museum, October 1996 and based on James Hillman's book The Soul's Code.

Each of us has felt the pull of destiny and the longing to answer our particular calling, a desire rarely nurtured by our families or society. How can we cut through the noise of contemporary culture to respond to the call of our soul?

Hillman and Meade propose that this "inner nobility" often announces itself in the struggles and pathologies that confront us, as well as in our deepest passions. What if we could learn to view our "dysfunctions" in a new way? Could they be messages from our soul--calling us to a more authentic life? Can we, individually and collectively, learn the language of the soul, and live in accordance with its intimations?

Images of Initiation tape coverImages of Initiation, with James Hillman, Michael Meade and Malidoma Somé.
Through stories, poems, song and lively dialog, psychologist James Hillman, mythologist and storyteller Michael Meade and initiated West African tribesman Malidoma Somé connect our lost rituals of initiation to the challenges that men are now facing. Together they explore where initiation begins, how it is denied and devalued, the role of mentor as distinguished from the father, and the importance of the grandfather and ancestors.

Threasholds of Change tape coverThresholds of Change: Finding Purpose and Inner Authority in Troubled Times, with Michael Meade.
The dramas and symptoms that erupt in our lives are not simply bad luck due to circumstances. Our wounds are also initiatory scars pointing us toward our purpose and destiny.
Storyteller, mythologist and drummer Michael Meade challenges us to follow our "inner threads of purpose" and suggests surprising strategies for negotiating with our tyrannical inner giants, the value of stealth, trickery and deal-making, knowing when to strive and when to surrencer, and the importance of discipline, art, and the feminine voice.
4 CDs, 4-1/2 hours, $29.95.

Throw Yourself like a Seed tape coverThrow Yourself Like a Seed, with Michael Meade.
The price we pay for worshipping independence may be an undernourished self, loss of community and increasingly chaotic youth. How do we go on as a culture without the rituals that give meaning to live? What legacy are we leaving coming generations?

Even when we recognize the need for change, how do we begin? Throw yourself like a seed, Meade suggests, into the work of living. Plant something and tend it long enough for meaning to appear.

The ancient story Half Boy illustrates the struggle of youth for respect and recognition, and the journey each of us must take to discover our genius within the community. Other stories include The Tree of Life and Death and The Abandoned Children.
1 tape, 90 minutes. $10.95.
