Storied Learning to Conjure the Capacity for Human Culture in Village Life
with Stephen Jenkinson & Nathalie Roy, Founders of the Orphan Wisdom School

When young people gather now, why are there so rarely Elders among them?

to see the cracks opening in the mansion of the way it is, an invitation:
From the desolate debris of this house that must fall, let us craft a leanto of real possibility whose true foundation is the sanity and sustenance of who the youth and elders must be to each other. This is for village making and learning what these times ask of young people.
