I appreciate many of Michael Meade’s offerings. He’s been a longtime guide to many in the mythopoetic. I’ve learned about him through my continued commitment to men’s work. This photo above is from his Mosaic Voices website.
Through one of his recent broadcast emails, these few lines on practice inspired. They’re brilliant. I love the way he speaks simply of things so grand that must include body, mind, and soul.
Through a practice we become more genuinely established in ourselves,
we gain an emotional seating,
a place to dwell within ourselves.
A genuine practice means loving something enough to be with it again and again
in all the moods of our soul
and in all the waves of emotion that can flow through us, body and soul.
