I have a certain fascination with Australia, maybe its the fact that I’ve been there and wanted to stay, maybe its the phrase “no worries”, or that 7 out of the 10 deadliest creatures call it home. More recently, I have fallen for Australia again because there is a lot of great EM education to be found online by the Aussies. One of my favorite EM Blogs BroomeDocs, is a worthy addition to your Google Reader. In fact, I believe one of their posts will be the inspiration for our first EM walkabout.
Walkabout refers to a rite of passage during which male Australian Aborigines would undergo a journey during adolescence and live in the wilderness for a period as long as six months. In this practice they would trace the paths, or “songlines”, that their people’s ceremonials ancestors took, and imitate, in a fashion, their heroic deeds. – Wikipedia.
So what is the EM walkabout? The walkabout format is my attempt to go deep on a topic while staying within the constraints of the blog format. It will start with some important aspect of our EM practice as a focus for our online exploration, no other structure, no rules, no limit to where it will go or when it will end. So when you see the title EM walkabout you know to strap on your Roo bar and get ready to enter the EM outback. What will the first topic be and where will it lead? Stay tuned.
