C is for Ocean

For the project titled C is for Ocean, the student will, to the best of their ability, cultivate a meaningful relationship with a local First Nation (otherwise known as a “tribe”) and attempt to access an elevated level of consciousness as experienced by indigenous wisemen, or what many in Western society have come to refer to as “shamans.” The student will immerse himself in this “otherworld” to both understand and explain the essence of this state of consciousness. As many would describe this place as the world from which metaphor derives, it follows that only a metaphor can aptly describe the nature of this experience. In essence, the student will dive in to the sea of consciousness and, in the words of Robert Bringhurst, “come back speaking poetry.”
