This audio blog is based on a dream that I had some years ago. It has to do with a ‘canoe lesson’ and the difficulty that an exquisitely advanced teacher had when he took me on as a student. It has prompted many insights over the years, but recently I’ve been thinking about it in terms of consciousness and empathy.
Of course, I invite you to have your own interpretation of the dream-myth. As P.L. Travers once said, what is important about a myth is not what it means in any absolute way, but what it means to you, to me, and to us.
