In today's world, information is plentiful but wisdom can be hard to find. How then do we sift what is significant from what is merely interesting, discern underlying simplicity from surface complexity, and create imaginative pathways to help us make what we do more meaningful and fulfilling?
Traditional tales, fables, lore and sayings are often powerful transmitters of wisdom - between cultures and between generations - complementing learning gleaned from academic and scientific study. Through paying attention to these essential sources we can find out useful and beautiful truths about our world, about ourselves and about our relationship with the environment that contains and sustains us.
