WHO: Will Taegel Will Taegel walks in two worlds. One reflects his Indigenous shamanic training and the other his psychological and scientific research. In his seventh decade he returned to graduate school to earn a second doctorate, a Ph.D. concentrating on an integration of ecology and quantum fields. Author of The Many Colored Buffalo and Wild Heart, The Mother Tongue is his eighth book. He has held various clinical positions and academic appointments, including his current role as Dean, Wisdom School of Graduate Studies, Ubiquity University. He was among the first researchers to connect clinical and cultural disturbance with human estrangement from the sacred core of Nature. He and his spouse, Dr. Judith Yost, engage in the spiritual practices of rainwater and solar collection and are functionally off the grid. They benefit from the gardens of their eco-spiritual, integral practice community called the Earthtribe. The Earthtribe consists of communities that practice Nature-based spirituality.About the Program CONVERSING IN THE MOTHER TONGUE: Where Field Science and Ancient Wisdom MeetCurrent planetary conditions strongly suggest we are at a tipping point that could go either way in terms of the human species. Called for is a complete reinvention of thinking and knowing that emerges when new field sciences join voices with ancient wisdom. The resulting conversation can take humans on a great return to the cycle of life wherein an intimate language, a mother tongue, lost to our species in the subject/object split can offer solutions to Earth’s crisis and individual pathology. Both the newer sciences and pre-Greek wisdom are calling us to give-up our obsession with dominance and make new connections within our systemic eco-fields as humble participants and co-creators.
