Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0971601127, Paperback)Each person born participates in the genius of life and the world at this time is in great need of an awakening of the genius qualities hidden in each of us. In this view genius refers, not to measurable intelligence, but to the essential uniqueness of each person and the gifts and talents that form the core of their inner life. The presence of genius marks each person, regardless of age, gender orientation, ethnicity or social status as being essentially distinct and automatically valuable. In a rapidly changing world faced with seemingly impossible problems, it becomes important to understand that each person has something to contribute to the solutions. Rather than heroically save the world, the real work of humanity at this time may be to awaken the unique spark and inner resiliency of genius within each person. Both timely and timeless, this book is essential for anyone who seeks to awaken their own genius and learn how it can help heal nature and re-imagine culture. This book will help young people hoping to find a meaningful way in the world and adults wanting to dwell more deeply in life. It offers essential ideas for parents and teachers, counselors and mentors seeking to encourage and support those they teach and care about. The Genius Myth is essential reading for anyone searching for a true orientation in the midst of a world gone wrong. The culmination of decades of work with at-risk youth and at-risk people, Michael Meade's book about the genius myth combines dramatic real life experiences with compelling mythic tales and a profound exploration of the wisdom of genius.
