".... The accumulation of knowledge is not wisdom - only
experience turns knowledge into wisdom...."
Grandfather - 1961
To Touch God
A quote from my story of Grandfather and the Fisherman goes, “and here in some unnamed stream in the Pine Barrens, he touched God”. I rarely discuss the issue of Grandfather and God; in part because there is just not enough time in any given class, but also because I feel a great respect for the notion that each person approaches what we call God, in his or her own unique way. However I believe that learning how Grandfather approached God on a daily basis is at once awe inspiring, humbling, and extremely enlightening. This class looks into Grandfather’s unique approach to what he called “The Great Mystery”.

Volunteers are a vital part of making each class a success. Having graduates of a class available to answer questions and help out in workshops is of tremendous value to current students, and provides a much larger pool of people they can turn to for assistance. As well, volunteers help to prepare and serve meals, head up the student crews and assist Instructors and Interns in lecture and workshop preparation - all of which are essential when it comes to keeping classes running smoothly. And don't forget, whenever you're not needed as a helper, we encourage you to sit in on the lectures and participate in the exercises and workshops. It's a great way to brush up on your skills, or discover what you may have missed the first time around!
