Scott Thybony

“When the flowers bloom … that in itself is the extension of all life, of all beauty.” Those are the words of a Navajo medicine man commentator Scott Thybony met some years ago when winter was on the verge of spring. Through their conversations, he came to understand that landscape is not separate from our own lives. In his latest Canyon Commentary, Thybony takes us back to Navajo Mountain where he learned the changing seasons are one of our greatest teachers.
