In this podcast, Amadon DellErba interviews Peter Bigfoot, founder and director of Reevis Mountain School of Self-Reliance. Peter is a survivalist, naturalist, herbalist, and legendary mountain man who lives deep in the Superstition Mountains east of Phoenix, Arizona where he passes on his vast body of knowledge to intrepid students from around the world.
In their conversation, Amadon & Peter discuss the spiritual nature of embracing life’s challenges and their journeys of self-discovery. Peter shares stories and insights from his 40 years living away from society in the mountains of Arizona, including his near-death experience during his 1975 solo trek through the desert wilderness.
Together, Amadon and Peter discuss metaphysical topics such as the mind being in control of the body, meditation, the body-mind vs. the spirit-mind, and the fact of our existence as eternal spiritual beings. They talk about getting real, taking action, practicing self-mastery, and having an “attitude of gratitude.” It is greater to ask, “What can I give?” rather than be a taker; being a servant of each soul you meet.
Amadon honors Peter for his choice to continue growing and learning new things. Over the years Peter has taken steps to become less self-righteous, evolving in his own understanding of the world and his place in eternity. Episode 11 is a beautiful conversation between two souls who have embraced challenges and allowed adversity to forge their unique characters.
