Friday November 2, 2001


Tom talked about various non-physical caretaking issues. Then students went out to do an inner vision exercise, sensing the landscape in a much deeper way, with great awareness. Essentially a "walking meditation".

Then this exercise was repeated in groups, with each group working towards arriving at a common understanding of the problem in an area, and arriving at a solution.


The class went to the Medicine Waters area.

Here each group placed their mouse houses. Tom spoke at length about the destruction taking place in the area. People were then free to explore and do some caretaking work in the area.

The "installed" mouse house is barely visible at the bottom of this picture, in the center, a slightly darker patch of leaves.

The mouse house is the patch of leaves to the left of the notebook.

After the mouse houses were placed in suitable locations, the class went down to the shore of the Medicine Waters stream.
The garbage bags are full of trash that the class collected from the area.

This evening was spent at the Primitive camp. Students were instructed to wander about the landscape, listening to the land, being open to whatever comes to them. Then meet together in groups and discuss the exercise.
