Aspen Ways of Knowing

Published in Dark Matter: Women Witnessing – Issue #10

From the time I was a small child, one of the guiding questions of my life has been “How do other beings know, understand, and perceive the world?” In particular, I have been fascinated by trying to understand how beings of non-human species feel and know, and what these perceptions and ways of knowing and being can teach others.
