Michael Meade begins with the issues of overwhelm and despair resulting from the climate crisis and loss of biodiversity. In order to see the pressing issues of contemporary life differently, Meade approaches despair through an ancient story of complete transformation in which a despondent hunter becomes a seeker after beauty and truth. Eventually the vital role of emotions becomes the focus as despair is revalued as a necessary descent into darkness on the road to awakening and renewal.
