A line in the sand: Tim ‘Mac’ Macartney

July 17, 2013 at 11:06 am 2 comments

Drawing on profound and challenging experiences gained when mentored and trained by a group of metis Native Americans, Mac uses story and powerful imagery to awaken and evoke our innate wild nature.

Speaking to a deeper, more ancient part of our tribal memory, he braids beauty, wildness, and the ‘heathen’ pulse of the human spirit into a single narrative. It is a call, a paean, a heart-song, to the many millions of us who still stand on the sidelines and passively watch as our planet is slowly, systematically, and meticulously tamed, caged, and broken. Clever, we undoubtedly are, but wise we are not. Not yet.

Mac will ask us some beguilingly simple questions and offer an invitation. An invitation which, if accepted, will take us into unknown territory, to the edge of our courage, and perhaps, one step closer to the world of our longing.

    Thank you for sending this. I will be sending on. This is very powerful and moving and so true. I am trying to get my Township to value trees and sitting at 12% is a crying shame. Russell Township needs to see this film. Thank you, Cindy Saucier Trees for Tomorrow! Date: Wed, 17 Jul 2013 11:06:28 +0000 To: dandycin@hotmail.com

    Loved the video “Line in the Sand”. Very powerful and I believe these teachings; just wish more did.
