In this rich conversation with THE RW Team members Kim Deans, Vivian Evans, Priscilla Jaya, Deanne Clonan and Rebel Black we explore the concept of the pedestal, the tall poppy syndrome, the risk and value of false 'gurudom' and the appetite and opportunity for collaboration! We dive into the questions:  - what is the value in positioning people as 'experts' or gurus - where does it fail - is it regenerative? - what is our experience of failing when others have pedestalled us? - what happens when your guru lets you down? ......................................... Guru - Definition and etymology — The word has its roots in the Sanskrit gri (to invoke, or to praise), and may have a connection to the word gur, meaning 'to raise, lift up, or to make an effort'. Sanskrit guru is cognate with Latin gravis 'heavy; grave, weighty, serious' and Greek βαρύς barus 'heavy' Guru Brahma Gurur Vishnu Guru Devo Maheshwaraha Guru Saakshat Para Brahma Tasmai Sree Gurave Namaha Meaning: Guru is verily the representative of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. He creates, sustains knowledge and destroys the weeds of ignorance. I salute such a Guru.
