School of Lost Border Programs

The School offers programs in a variety of locations throughout the four seasons. If you are interested in one of our offerings, the first step is to contact the guide(s) for that program. They will send preparation material and the forms needed to register. Then you must write back  and state your reasons for enrollment. This may not be the easiest way to enroll. But your intent and decision must be carefully considered. The “letter of intent” has become traditional and necessary as the years have passed. The intent carries the weight of thousands of years of ancestral yearning.

We do not go into the desert to escape

people but to learn how to find them:
we do not leave them in order to have

nothing more to do with them,
but to find out the way
to do them the most good.
