Following the Old Indian Path

Laurie Lane-Zucker


Several months ago, on an exquisite early autumn morning, I dropped my children at the school bus before beginning my first commute to the Seven Pillars House of Wisdom’s office in New Lebanon, NY, where I had recently accepted a staff position.

In the midst of it all we walked as peacewalkers carrying a palpable, reverent, dignified and joyful silence. read more »
