Raven 11: Thoroughgoing

Who has been your most thoroughgoing teacher? After a transformative experience, maybe it's good to let it settle -- camp out for a while. We all teach and have much to teach. What is the role of "camping out for a while" in a teacher's growth and development?

Raven came to Brown Bear's den and walked right into her lair. "Time for me to be moving on," she announced.
Brown Bear asked, "What will you say about your study here?"
Raven said, "Brown Bear is quite thoroughgoing."
Brown Bear said, "Try camping out for a while."
Retreat. Preparation? For advancing? Maybe.
Or perhaps advancing was preparation for this retreat,
Accouterments reduced to carryable.
This temporary eternal world-self never stops shining.
Case by Robert Aitken; introduction and verse by Meredith Garmon
