Yosemite Dispatches with Ron Kauk: Sacred Rok Summer

This week, the weather in Tuolumne turned cold. The fall weather brings with it a reflective time, a respect for the change of seasons. With the experiences of this past year, Sacred Rok is now starting to mature. We have a nice cadre of young people with whom I have cultivated friendships that I hope will continue to grow. Leading up to next summer, I will have day trips with small groups ing up from Merced, continuing to develop our appreciation of education, nature’s way. At the same time, we are working on the inherent tension between our way of doing with the external expectations of being clearer about objectives, curriculum, and teaching. We believe that structure often works against natural discovery and connecting the experiences to the soul. Sacred Rok for me is an on-going experiment in how these elements of learning and living can be woven together to inspire a deeper understanding of being human and our responsibility to the earth. –Ron Kauk To read more about Rons summer and the meaningful trips he and his partner Kenji hosted, visit the Sacred Rok news page.
