Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 The tracker from the Shangaan tribe, Richard, was able to find two leopard cubs three miles from any road in dense brush. The most basic reason he was able to wayfind with almost miraculous skill was that he was a master of the first technology of magic, Wordlessness. #2 The most important skill for any wayfinder is the ability to drop into Wordlessness, which allows you to be aware of your situation and your own responses to it. It connects your consciousness with the deep peace and presence that is your essential you. #3 The idea that real learning is spoken, read, and written is a holdover from the Age of Exploration, when explorers traveled the globe and claimed indigenous populations were dim-witted, unmotivated, and backward. #4 The key to Wordlessness is to move your basic perceptual and analytical thinking out of your head and into the whole inner space of your body. This is how you begin to find your way through life. But most people don’t know this.
