Scott Eberle
Director of The Practice of Living and Dying
Scott Eberle has worked as a wilderness guide at the School of Lost Borders since 2003.  While he guides an array of programs for the School, he has two special interests.  The first is exploring how the symbolic death-and-rebirth dimension of the School’s ceremony is informed by his considerable experience sitting with people who are physically dying.  To this end, he and Meredith Little co-created the School’s “Practice of Living and Dying” programs.  His second interest is exploring the wonderful synergy of having your heart and mind cracked open while sitting alone in the wide expanse of the desert, or while sitting quietly on a meditation cushion.  His first book, The Final Crossing: Learning to Die in Order to Live, explored the first interest.  He is presently writing a second book, The Red Thread of Story, which weaves together both of these interests, while he seeks to understand why it is we humans tell stories.
