Culture no longer protects against growing threats of global terror and societal greed, while Nature becomes increasingly endangered through pollution, holes in the ozone, and the effects of global warming. In this insightful dialogue, storyteller and mythologist Michael Meade, shows that when things seem darkest, it is "mythic sense" that is missing and mythic imagination is needed. He tells us, "Now is the time to find one's own unique, personal connection to things beyond time and beyond the simplicity of place. The best connection to have when all connections are breaking down is a connection to eternity which is the individual right of each person." (hosted by Michael Toms)
