I am a runner and have found my role models in the Tarahumaras of the Copper Canyon in Mexico who have mastered the art of conditioning the body to run hundreds of miles. Similarly, I have learned that there is no secret to conditioning the mind – and that all the diminishing practices of our educational system and our stratified society can be turned back – by holding our heads high, being both teachers and students in our everyday lives and absorbing all the knowledge possible to create new pathways for higher levels of learning and practice. There are too many counselors, too many books, too many commentators, too many false leaders that have us believing that we cannot cultivate. The reality is that our communities know a lot – but are diminished in the possibilities for positioning and taking back the legacies of creation that have been so much a part of our history.
