wisdom of the feet?


Former US Poet Laureate Stanley Kunich was in part the inspiration for the title of this blog as he wrote about the Wisdom of the Body. A 7 1/2 mile hike in the Rocky Mountain National Park will tell you a lot about the "Wisdom of the feet". The photo above is from yesterday's hike and today my feet are in recovery. Of course the hands and brain are only two parts of the system through which we explore the universe and come to terms with its characteristics.

The trail was nicely packed with other adventurers but there were about 20-25 of us from the Stowe family reunion sharing the trail. A good walk stimulates great conversations, and serves as one more example of the integration of mind and body that facilitates exploration of consciousness and deepening of relationship.

On of my favorite jaunts in all of America. I did it with my then two boys of 11 and 9. They still talk about it. After woodworking, hiking is the best way to relax. If they turned all golf courses into walking courses people would be so much better off.
