unconscious— history takes place in the holocene—human culture is rooted in
the primitive ...

There is much that I love about poet and essayist Gary Snyder's eloquent and
thoughtprovoking book, The Practice of the Wild. It's among my favorite and most
markedup books, filled with underlined and highlighted sentences and
paragraphs, notes scribbled in the margins. One part that I especially love
touches on the idea that “the world is watching.” As Snyder explains it, a person
cannot venture anywhere in nature without his or her movements being noticed
by each creature that ...

In two well-known essays, “Walking” and “Wild Apples,” Thoreau articulated a
distinction between nature as wild and self-willed on one hand, and the civilizing
tendencies of human domination on the other. (The Essays of Henry D. Thoreau [
New York: North Point, 2002]). No one has done more to develop or apply this
distinction than Gary Snyder, in his collection of essays called The Practice of the
Wild (San Francisco: North Point, 1990). While Snyder's able discussion ranges
over ...

M1 In his own inspiring books of poetry and prose since then, Snyder has
remained a monumental figure in American Zen and one of my esteemed
influences.142 In this essay I will comment on just a few elements of the deeply
stimulating material in Snyder's The Practice of the Wild, a most valuable Dharma
text. This brilliant book presents a rich context for the organic process of Zen
questioning and practice through appreciating the wildness of nature, of
language, and of the path of ...

Second Leg: Discipline (The Practice of the Wild) Every path to wholeness
requires a discipline, especially for those who pass through wilderness. Quaker
writer Richard Foster, in his book Celebration of Discipline, distinguishes the “
inward disciplines” of meditation, prayer, fasting, and study from the “outward
disciplines” of simplicity, solitude, and service.1 All of these can (and at times
must) be practiced in wilderness, as the Desert Fathers and Mothers evidenced
long ago.
