Wade&rsquo;s visionary work as an anthropologist, ethno-botanist, photographer, filmmaker and author earned him an honorary degree from CC in 2010. His lecture for Monday, November 25<sup>th</sup> titled: <em>&ldquo;Wayfinders: Why Ancient Wisdom Matters In The Modern World,&rdquo; </em>celebrates the wonder of the human imagination as expressed in every culture.</p> <p>We&rsquo;ll travel to Polynesia and celebrate the art of navigation that allowed the Wayfinders to infuse the entire Pacific Ocean with their imagination and genius. In the Amazon, await the descendants of a true Lost Civilization, the People of the Anaconda, a complex of cultures inspired by mythological ancestors who even today dictate how humans must live in the forest. In the Andean Cordillera and the mountains of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta of Colombia we&rsquo;ll discover that the Earth really is alive, pulsing, responsive in a thousand ways to the spiritual readiness of humankind. Dreamtime and the Songlines will lead to the melaleuca forests of Arnhem Land, as we seek to understand the subtle philosophy of the first humans to walk out of Africa, the Aboriginal peoples of Australia. In Nepal a stone path will take us to a door opening to reveal the radiant face of a wisdom hero, a Bodhisattva, Tsetsam Ani, a Buddhist nun who forty-five years ago entered lifelong retreat. The flight of a hornbill, like a cursive script of nature, will let us know that we have arrived at last amongst the nomadic Penan in the upland forests of Borneo.</p> <p>What ultimately we will discover on this journey will be our mission for the next century.&nbsp;There is a fire burning over the Earth, taking with it plants and animals, ancient skills and visionary wisdom. At risk is a vast archive of knowledge and expertise, a catalogue of the imagination, an oral and written language composed of the memories of countless elders and healers, warriors, farmers, fishermen, midwives, poets, and saints. In short, the artistic, intellectual, and spiritual expression of the full complexity and diversity of the human experience. Quelling this flame, and rediscovering a new appreciation for the diversity of the human spirit as expressed by culture, is among the central challenges of our times.</p> <p>More about First Mondays:&nbsp;<a href=""></a></p> CC Women's Basketball Fri, 18 Oct 2013 14:32:50 MDT <p><em>Friday, November 29, 2013 3:00 PM</em></p><p>CC Women's Basketball vs. Carleton College,&nbsp;El Pomar Sports Center,&nbsp;3 p.m.</p> CC Men's Basketball Fri, 18 Oct 2013 14:44:33 MDT <p><em>Friday, November 29, 2013 5:00 PM</em></p><p>CC Men's Basketball vs. Carleton College,&nbsp;El Pomar Sports Center, 5 p.m.</p>
