From Noah and the 'great flood,' to the mythology of storm gods and the Titans ripping at the edges of culture Michael Meade will offer an evening of stories that seek to rescue meaning from the turbulence and chaos of modern times.  

Michael Meade has studied myth, anthropology, history of religion, and cross-cultural rituals for more than 35 years. His hypnotic and fiery storytelling, street-savvy perceptiveness, and spellbinding interpretations of ancient myths and symbols are highly relevant to current culture. He has an unusual ability to distill and synthesize these disciplines, tapping into ancestral sources of wisdom, while connecting them to the stories of people today. He is the author of Men and the Water of Life; editor, with James Hillman and Robert Bly, of Rag and Bone Shop of the Heart; and editor of Crossroads: A Quest for Contemporary Rites of Passage. Meade is Founder/Director of Mosaic Multicultural Foundation, a network of artists, teachers, and activists that fosters community healing and development efforts. He is also on the Adjunct Faculty of Pacifica Graduate Institute.

All Souls is located at 1500 Harvard St, NW. The main entrance to the sanctuary is at the corner of 16th and Harvard Streets, where the neighborhoods of Columbia Heights, Adams-Morgan, and Mount Pleasant come together. Questions about this event can be directed to
