Chapter 6. On Forgetting to Wear Boots

Chapter 6. On Forgetting to Wear Boots

I have no doubt that Camphill is an expression of a great intuitive thrust out of the deep heart of nature which has us in its keeping and knows that both we and it are in mortal peril.

Sir Laurens van der Post

Whenever friends visit my wife, Phyllis, and me, one of our favorite places to take them is the nearby Camphill village in Copake, New York. The village is part of a thriving, worldwide movement for the care of people with special needs. You will find here villagers with Down syndrome and a great variety of other mental handicaps all pursuing their lives in a beautiful, restful, productive, socially supportive, and artistically rich setting. If there is a place that can bring healing to a high-tech society, surely this is it.
