The Wisdom Project...

.
Inspired by *ubuntu...
.
Wisdom:

.I'm not going to spoil the surprise,
and your pleasure,
by saying a word more...
So, please, just
ENJOY..!
.

. For those of you, who like me,
love nothing more than going behind the scenes:

WISDOM:
How It Was Made
.
WISDOM:
In Order Of Appearance + Behind the Scenes
.
I simply can’t stop watching these excerpts
as I await delivery of my copies (for all my family and friends)
ordered from Amazon...
.
Do let me know your opinions on the
project...
I'm saving what I have to say until you've all
had the time to watch, read and listen to, slowly but surely,
the excerpts from the book & documentary film.
.
N'oubliez pas de me dire ce que vous en pensez...
Chez nous, en tout cas, toute la famille adore
- on garde, tous, encore en nous toutes les images magnifiques
et, surtout, les paroles si belles de tous
ces "ainés" qui ont chacun, dans leur domaine,
marqués le cours de l'histoire...

..
*
Inspired by the ancient African concept of ubuntu,
which emphasizes human connectedness
- I am what I am because of who we all are -
Zuckerman set out to gather and communicate the lessons his extraordinary
subjects have learned about love, work, the environment,
and conflict resolution.

Well worth checking out:
Super Forest
where there's an extremely informative and well-
written article about the project.

Hi India J.
Thank you for sharing this wonderful post. The package is so simple and elegant

and the youtube about making WISDOM is powerful. I believe growing wise is one of the nicest things about gaining years. Wisdom allows perspective!!

Have a great night
filled with light!

Merci bien pour ce cadeau. En espagnol, 'sabiduria' ou 'sapiencia'. C'est une des characteristiques humaines le plus important, pas seulement l'avoir, mais aussi l'utilisser, et surtout, l'utilisser bien.

Greetings from London.
