    Original Wisdom

    By Robert Wolff

    Deep in the mountainous jungle of Malaysia, the aboriginal Sng'oi exist on the edge of extinction. Psychologist Robert Wolff lived with the Sng'oi, and came to love and admire these people. They respect silence, trust time to reveal and heal, and live entirely in the present with a sense of joy; they also recognize the depth of our alienation from these basic qualities of life. Original Wisdom holds a mirror to our own existence, and challenges us, in our fragmented world, to rediscover this humanity within ourselves.
