Matt: Do you think that Thoreau would have thrived as an educator at your school?
Matt Schlein
I do. I think I would be out of a job.

It has been a challenge. A huge contradiction at the heart of what we do. How do we translate a nature embedded experience into the virtual world.
Mark Howenstein
All of you seem to be discussing in part the challenges of confronting uncertainty and vulnerability—whether it be in cultivating authenticity of self, addressing the injustices of the world or navigating the complex interdependencies of our world. What specific nuggets of wisdom do you draw from HDT in this regard?

Two of Thoreau’s central motifs are those of the Wild and Higher Law which inform his two greatest essays. What do you see as the essential interrelation between the two?
Mark Howenstein
Thank you for an excellent session. I look forward to seeing the film later this evening.
