CMN: Robert Tennyson Stevens on The Language of Life (April 2006)
Studying the language of the Hopi Indians, Robert Tennyson Stevens discovered that they had no word for now, because the Hopi live in the now. In this interview he describes how language shapes thought, which shapes reality.
Stevens’ experience with the Hopi language sparked a lifelong fascination with the spoken word and how it affects the human ability to manifest life. There are keys to life in language that are subtle yet powerful, and Robert lets us in on what they are.
