"Grandfather never answered any of our questions the way most people would answer a question. He would either point us in the direction of the answer, or ask us a series of questions, all designed to make us think. A "coyote teacher" makes every learning experience exciting, something we desperately want to know. He planned each lesson like a chess game or jigsaw puzzle, where one teaching led to another. But he never forced any teaching on us; instead, he maneuvered the situation so we had to know, had to go on. "How do we build a shelter?" we would ask. He would answer "Ask the squirrels." We would ask "How does a bow-drill fire work?" and he would answer "Rub your hands together." Or we would ask "How can we track foxes better?" and he would reply "Track mice." He made each teaching special, exciting, and something we desperately needed to know. And as always, the lessons would go far deeper than just the superficial, reaching to all realms of our lives."

We apologize to those on the West Coast we are aware that
there is a time difference, this is why we have included
a Sunday, so you can attend a least one session. Tom wants this to be a live
event, so for those who can not attend, the recordings from these events will
be the bases for several volumes of “Conversations with Grandfather”. We WILL NOT be recording this, and it WILL NOT
be available for download later.
Please be aware that we can guarantee that all the material
from the live stream will not be in “Conversations with Grandfather” and vice
versa that there will be material on the “Conversations with Grandfather” recordings
