In February I undertook a Vision Fast in Death Valley guided by the School of Lost Borders to mark my 60th birthday this past December, and some folks have asked if I might share some reflections from that experience. I plan to make such an offering on April 7th, at 4pm, and would like to hear from anyone who plans to attend this gathering that will take place in Bellingham at my friend Bruce’s house. PLEASE RSVP VIA EMAIL OR CALL 360-303-3892, rather than posting on my blog.

If you would like to see the School of Lost Borders website, here is the link:


The modern day vision fast is a border crossing practice. When one steps across the threshold and into the unknown wilderness, boundaries begin to dissolve and our vision begins to expand. Everything is pregnant with meaning, and nature speaks to us in the voices of rock, tree, and wind. Following the ancient pathway of this rite of passage, we step into our true nature and remember our home among the wild. We become who we were born to be.

The aforementioned description is from the website of the school.
