Living Wild

Daniella Roze’s June 12 “Living Wild in the Stone Age” presentation was the most inspiring thing I’ve seen in a long time. The slideshow photos were stunning, and the talk itself held the listeners’ attention with a combination of adventure stories, practical survival skills, and poetry. It was also interesting to hear about the spiritual insights gained from such a close personal connection to the land, to a small community of people, and to the immediate sources of one’s food and water.

After several months of advance preparation — studying traditional hunting and gathering skills, learning to make Paleolithic tools & clothing — Roze’s group lived for one month in the mountains of northern Washington, with no modern technology.

Wednesday June 4. We were honoured with the presence of Okanagan College’s Jake Kennedy and John Lent, as they led a discussion about writing, teaching, music and literary forms. Wind in the trees and strings by Karen Donaldson Shepherd: sublime. Thank you to everyone who came out to listen and participate!
