The story of the creation of the Universe, Earth, Life, and Consciousness is the subject of The Great Story, the 14 billion year epic of cosmos, life, and humanity, told as a sacred story glorifying all…Michael Dowd and Connie Barlow have taken the Great Story on the road, inspiring progressive churches and spiritual centers around the country to come up with their own ways to tell the story through music, art, dance, and words. Their mission is to teach and preach a sacred, meaningful, inspring way of understanding the history of cosmos, Earth, life, and humanity in colleges, universities, churches, synagogues, retreat centers, living rooms, and private and public schools across North America. The Great Story promotes the marriage of science and the sacred for personal and planetary wellbeing and ongoing transformation. Teaching the Great Story as a sacred creation story will inspire the world’s religious leaders and followers to embrace an evolutionary, ecological worldview.

Michael and Connie are looking for people with a clue, to network with and support others who are committed to a just, healthy, beautiful, and sustainably life-giving future for all species.
Way back before the Great Story hit the road, our own Emma, the Cleu lady, choreographed the Dance of the Elements for Circus Numen, telling the story of the Universe and the 5 elements of Earth, Air, Fire, Water, and Space. We love the Great Story!
