"Yes! I wonder as well what or where our technological drive will end. It seems that each successive step towards creating something more complex requires an equally long step towards destruction. It's interesting to imagine us clicking our way to…"
Wow! Even better that you are a graduate of Langskib! I am off to NY today, but will check it all out in the next day or two. I would love to contact you by phone to find out more and give you a background on who the boys are.
I don't have any sons that participated (yet). However, next best thing, I AM a son that experienced Langskib! (Excalibur wasn't around yet). Without getting too much into my own story, I can say that my time at NWL, as a youth and as a…"
That is tremendously helpful, and I will check out the organizations. They sound in line with what we are looking for. The boys have gone to a progressive school for the last eleven years, with a curriculum steeped in ritual, myth…"

"Actually, wondering if "extra lives" takes on the archetypal form of reincarnation? Not so much in the Christian sense of reincarnation being part of a continued narrative, but rather similar to samsara? While these are worlds apart, I am wondering…"
"John: You may want to check the Gordon and Betty Moore foundation (http://www.moore.org/). Globally, they do Environmental Conservation and offer grants and intitiatives in Marine Conservation, Andes-Amazon, and work with Wild Salmon. I know they do…"
"Hi Lili, I got an B.S. in Biochemistry and with a minor in Philosophy, and I can say that Philosophy has been more informative to my development and process in Depth Psychology. However, I can say that at the time, the grinding business of the…"
"I had not associated this dream with the spill but I see now it probably could be. I read it initially as a personal depiction of a dynamic currently happening in my life in relation to a younger man as well as another very similar younger man from…"
