Course Series Overview
"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."

This class will go deeper into the higher levels of awareness in which Grandfather lived his daily life, as well as his teachings, rituals and ceremonies. It will also include more of the stories, parables and spiritual teachings that he passed on to Tom; the application of which will go well beyond the wilderness, and permeate all aspects of your daily life.
