Etsko Schuitema
Etsko completed an honours degree in Social Anthropology at the University of the Witwatersrand before joining the Chamber of Mines of South Africa Research Organisation as a graduate researcher. His work at the Chamber was initially focused on the issue of conflict in gold mines in the final eclipse of the apartheid regime. His groundbreaking work, dealing with conflict resolution, led to the development of a framework for understanding trust in this controversial industry. In 1989 he founded Schuitema of which he is the Lead partner.

The Two Sandals Launch

Join us for the launch of Etsko Schuitema’s latest book: The Two Sandals

About the book:
We come into the world as scintillating points of awareness. Over time, we develop certain convictions about who we are, and each one of them describes a limitation. The Two Sandals gives you tools to free yourself from that web of limitations, by applying the metaphorical two sandals of Intention and Attention in order to rediscover that ecstatic, magical being who you were before you became defined, before you were made a person among people. The author takes you on a journey through the maturation process of the human being seen through the lens of intent in the different epochs of our lives, from being an emptiness that seeks to be filled to eventually arriving at a place of unconditional giving ¬ – a fullness that seeks to be emptied. The book also contains practical exercises and techniques to help you clarify your intent and attention so that you may, once again, become that magical being that is beyond limitation and recapture the original ecstatic connectedness with all things that was experienced in infancy.

About the talk:
In his foreword, Armand Kruger states that “Living is like looking at life through a kaleidoscope, with an unknown hand continuously turning the hand piece and changing what there is to see. The Two Sandals asks questions and offers answers that allow the reader to come up with a road map to understand and respond more appropriately to this kaleidoscope.”

Armand will address the relevance and trustworthiness of The Two Sandals in various areas of excellence, by examining the questions:

What’s the big idea?

How do you know?

Why should you care?

What should you do?
