The Genius Myth proposes that each person born participates in the genius of life and that 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 the need to 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, "The Genius Myth" combines dramatic  real life experiences with compelling mythic tales and a profound exploration of the wisdom of genius.

"Genius is the natural spirit in a person, something invisible in itself, yet essential to each person, an inner essence without which they cannot be.  Genius represents something originally given to each of us that we are intended to, in turn, give back to the world. In the strange way of the world, that which is most essentially ours and makes us who we are intended to be, turns out to also be the “treasure hard to attain.”
