A Poetics of Peace: The Water of Life. An evening of story, poetry, and discussion with author, mythologist, and storyteller Michael Meade This evening celebrates the new and revised edition of The Water of Life, the classic text about the importance of awakening the inherent nobility of the human soul. Starting with the dual nightmare of global terror and global warming, Meade elucidates connections between finding purpose in personal life and returning culture to a context of myth and meaning.

When life becomes fearful and dark with uncertainty, what is missing is the touch of eternity and a mythic sense of being woven within the ongoing story of the world. The quest for the Water of Life represents the universal search for personal renewal as well as the inspiration that can re-imagine culture and redeem nature.

Meade is a masterful storyteller with a genius for metaphorical thinking and gleaning ideas from years of working with youth and communities at-risk. His language rings with echoes of truth and "sings with an incantational voice that takes you right to the edge of elemental knowledge."

Join us for a surprising evening of poetry and stories, an exploration of the 'bigger life' that the soul seeks, where mythic imagination is a primordial resource that combines heart-felt intelligence with a reverence for life in its myriad forms. Proceeds support 'Voices of Youth' and Intercultural Projects. For more information or online registration visit the Mosaic website at or contact the Mosaic office at: 206-935-3665 or (Vashon, WA 9/28/06; Portland, OR 10/12/06; Seattle, WA 10/25/06), San Rafael, CA (11/17/06)

Why the World Doesn’t End, Michael Meade. An evening presentation celebrating the release of Michael Meade’s timely new book, Why the World Doesn’t End, Tales of Renewal in Times of Loss. At a time when the End can seem near because of global warming, nuclear nightmares or the predictions of ancient calendars, mythologist Michael Meade offers compelling tales of renewal and surprising ways to view the psychology and mythology that mark the passage between one era and the next. In this liminal period beset with radical change in culture and disruptions in nature there are hints of renewal amidst the rattling and the rubble.
