Original Thinking A Radical ReVisioning of Time, Humanity, and Nature by Glenn Aparicio Parry
Now available at the University of Vermont Library! With the slim sliver of a moon against the dark we are moving with the light and giving thanks. In a curious state of mind there are questions and as we read thru Glenn’s book, “Original Thinking”, we are moving with his questions that pepper the book throughout and appreciation for his writing and teaching.
Glenn Aparicio Parry shares stories from cultures that point to a cognitive way of thinking that gives voice to Traditional Knowledge (AKA Wisdom) of the original peoples.
From the Living Cultures of today he shares his empirical knowledge and gifts us with the academia research that authenticates.
Yes! read the book and reach out to all dimensions that we exist with and especially reach out to Mother Earth for a deeper understanding.
Reflections and Mirrors
(also my homework assignment)
Reflections and random observations
On my way to school, which incidentally can be a challenging task as an older adult, there was ample
opportunity to reflect and really see reflections. There was in the mirror all that surrounded me like the mountains and sky and the standing silent ones and there flew a hawk. It really is a fine tune (i.e.: music) for the heart filled with gratitude. Then the car mirror flew off and left was the dark blank frame, a hole surrounded by life spirit of the mountains, sky, clouds and all manner of standing silent Nations.
Our conversation around the topic “Sacred Politics” started with a way of seeing or knowing being explained by author, educator Eco-psycologist, Glenn Aparicio Parry, as part of the relationship original peoples had with their environment. He says the Wisdom of these peoples can be reflected with the continuous cognitive ways and relationships that are still practiced today. Traditional peoples still practice ceremony and have reverence for the spirit of all life. What we talked about was being keen observer, also our first assignment for Documentary Film Making class….go observe before filming.
This is an audio experience, its live radio broadcasting from the center of campus to the center of listeners hearts. First music with Redhawk Woman followed by interview with Glenn Aparicio Parry.
So i thought about the mirror and will glue one on there but as a human being or a filmmaker i want to remember to see what is not seen on this dimension, in the mirror, but perhaps appealing to something else not an argument but rather intuition or a reflection.
We continued the conversation because the Grandmothers are always reflecting the old ways in each crystal they plant activates others to reflect light and move with healing energy and kindness and peace. With Founder of Grandmothers Circle The Earth, Susan Kaiulani Stanton, we talked while the Elders reveled in their journey thru the mountain along the shores of the Hawaiian Kingdom.

Next week i will look at the prompts for writing a reflection, but look for an old school book report on “Original Thinking A Radical ReVisioning of Time, Humanity, and Nature” by Glenn Aparicio Parry too.
