Weaving stories within stories, lacing pertinent psychology within cultural analysis, and mixing autobiography with myth, Michael Meade opens the territory of fate and destiny to new interpretations and deeper meanings leading us to an undeniable truth: that the only story we came here to live is our own.“At the age of thirteen Michael became a lover of myth. That love kept unfolding. Now he is a great elder in our tribe, and this book is the flowering and the fruiting of the seed-story of this unique individual. His genius is a generous gift to us all.” – Coleman Barks “Carefully re-teaching us words we think we know: genius, destiny, fate, soul, gift, fame and infamy—Michael Meade introduces us to our own soul’s interior meanings and our unique life’s divinely imprinted designs. I love the threading of these teachings with stories from Meade’s own remarkable life. It is a relief to witness the glory of an awakened elder, here. There is brilliant medicine in this book.” – Alice Walker “Michael Meade is a genius in his winding through mythological themes. Fate and Destiny is written with his typical fierceness and truth-telling.” – Robert Bly “Michael Meade is one of our most brilliant and visionary teachers and this profound book is a life-line to the soul. I truly hope your good fate brings you to read this book and be transformed by its wild blessings and wisdom.” – Jack Kornfield “Fate and Destiny offers an inspirational and brilliant perspective of how the gifts of the soul reveal the child prodigy in us; which fuels our destiny and offers a counterbalance to an increasingly unbalanced world! Once again Michael Meade brilliantly weaves together ancient and modern stories that entail fateful interventions to support not forgetting destiny’s purpose.” – Angeles Arrien
