"Learning Trust—Trusting Learning"
The Past, the Future and Now
When thoughts are stuck or whirling, which way can we go? Where can we turn? What helps with natural learning, and what hinders? Can people go too far, or not far enough? Is it possible to mess this up?(I won't spend much time on the past or the future, but will get directly to living in the moment, making decisions, and how I've seen some families move too far too quickly, or hesitate for years. I expect it to turn encouraging by about 20 minutes in and then generally touching and amusing with occasional appeals to memory and reason.)
BAUD (Brittany/Bretagne, France):
Wednesday, June 15
I will speak, informally, and perhaps some other people will too. Several families are confirmed, and as of April 7, the projected crowd will represent Switzerland, France, U.K. and the U.S. Some are camping, some are renting in town, a few are staying in the house. We will have a pancake breakfast one day, and at least one other shared meal.
