The relationship between the master and the apprentice is an age old challenge for those involved in situations requiring specific work goals. The master holds the keys to the knowledge of best practice; this is what the apprentice needs. The apprentice holds the keys to the power to get the physical work done. This is a need of the master. Matching these two needs harmoniously requires the same type of dedicated cultivation of social relationships that is given to the work on the land. Without social cultivation, much time and energy is wasted due to negative feelings on the part of both the master and the apprentice.
There are three easily-done social exercises adapted from spiritual practices in the ancient mystery schools. These practices are storytelling, symbolic mapping and the incubation phase of sleep and dream. These creative practices have been used for centuries to ease the exchange of work and knowledge between generations. Using lecture presentations and group exercises Dennis Klocek will present these three enjoyable and productive approaches to social harmony.
