Tom talked about the meditation he taught yesterday, and
awareness. Essentially a mini-review of Philosophy 1 class (since that was not a
prerequisite of this class).
He described the consciousness of the caretaker.
The class then went out, each person with a partner, and did an
exercise trying to feel the healthy and sick parts of trees. This exercise was
done blindfolded, so as to help develop the "feeling" of what is
healthy/sick with the tree. Pairs of students took turns sensing and leading.
Essentially, the object was to sense the tree's aura.
