Sintesi dell'editore

"One of the few places left to look for meaning in our contemporary culture is in story and myth," suggests Michael Meade. Weaving rhythm and words, this master storyteller, drummer, and scholar of mythology takes us on a compelling journey of self-discovery down the "roads of fire and water". Through two timeless stories - "The Spirit in the Bottle" and "The Water of Life" - we will learn how to relocate the spirit in our lives and awaken "the elder", an inner wisdom source.

From breaking through denial to exploring the genius within, Meade covers a variety of topics that take us to another time and place - an inner territory where we drink deeply of the elemental truths. With hypnotic and fiery storytelling, The Water of Life offers nourishment and inspiration for connecting to the generative forces that nourish all life and offer personal meaning.

Highly recommended by me

As a personal note, I came to the work of Michael Meade through the work and readings of Robert Bly. When Michael tells a story with a drum beat, and then amplifies it with discourse, I have always been amazed. This work, “The Water of Life” is a great example, and I am sure I will listen to it many times.

Great Story telling

Great story telling. I love the drumming and the way the story flowed. It was hard for me to follow his interpretation to each story. But overall a Great book

A brilliant stories, analyses, and performances!

Meade storytelling is compelling, particularly as accompanied by his rhythmic drumming. He offers multileveled analysis of the stories' that shed light on how to interpret them as personal initiation stories, as stories about family relations, and as sources of cultural insights. Rich and rewarding work!

Grippingly Entertaining, profound and beautiful.

This work is a gift. Michael Meade is an amazing storyteller. His passion and wisdom pour through the words and the drumming takes the experience to a rarified level.

Enter with an open mind,

Enter with an open mind and you could leave with an elder perspective, because wisdom is about experience not age.

Not my thing

I was gifted this but it wasn't for me and it seemed dated. Reminded me of William Shatner doing spoken word pieces in the 70s but not as good.
