The Perplexing State of Education Today

One might think that this current pandemic is creating a crisis in educational institutions around the world, but I personally think it offers a unique opportunity for all of us to redefine ‘teaching and learning experiences’ for educators, students, and parents. Probably the most soul-numbing career I have ever experienced was teaching Technical Writing toContinue reading “The Perplexing State of Education Today”

The Pragmatist

A little discussion yesterday with my mate led me to this personal realization after hearing extremely sensible words coming out of my mouth: “OMG!  I think I’ve become a pragmatist. How did that happen?  And WHEN did it happen?” I’ve always been an idealist, an optimist, an earlier-in-life romantic even. Not many others who haveContinue reading “The Pragmatist”

Branches of the Same Tree

“All religions, arts and sciences are branches of the same tree. All these aspirations are directed toward ennobling man’s life, lifting it from the sphere of mere physical existence and leading the individual towards freedom.” – Albert Einstein This quote may elicit a mixed reaction from many people because ‘freedom’ is a word that meansContinue reading “Branches of the Same Tree”

“It Is Not the Answer…”

“It is not the answer that enlightens, but the question.” ~ Eugene Ionescowww.earthschoolharmony.com For me personally and for ALL of us world-wide, this 2020 year is BEYOND strange. I’ve certainly had a bunch of questions over many aspects of our shared experience, but I know that there aren’t believable answers for them, so I justContinue reading ““It Is Not the Answer…””

Reflections On My Left Hand

I have far greater appreciation now for the lesser-used appendage: my left hand. Last Wednesday morning bright and early I took a “woops” dive off the back stoop—two steps high. As I plummeted to the ground I turned mid-flight to brace myself before I hit the ground, and naturally put my right hand out toContinue reading “Reflections On My Left Hand”

Traumatic Emotional Impacts Become Looping Negative Memories

Saw a short video by Dr. Pat Ogden, the creator of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, on helping a young anxiety client to counter her own reactive responses to the world around her. Ogden is one of the few well-known psychotherapists who treat clients more holistically recognizing that the kinetic movements or posturing of the physical body oftenContinue reading “Traumatic Emotional Impacts Become Looping Negative Memories”

Walking the ‘Tunnel of Grace’

I was listening to Kaypache on YouTube and saw a Caroline Myss video from May 2020 talking about “The World Is Going to Start Over Again”.  (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XWAc1bRwSHg )  I’ve been a Caroline Myss fan for decades and hadn’t heard this one, so listened.  She talked about her experiences at that time with the Covid-19 pandemicContinue reading “Walking the ‘Tunnel of Grace’”

REBIRTH

“True initiation is a response to an inner calling; it requires that you face personal challenges heroically, and to experience a genuine rebirth into a new way of being.”  Alberto Villoldo, PhD Ask any screaming newborn just forcefully squeezed out of its mother’s womb like toothpaste from a crumpled tube, how pleasant birthing can be.Continue reading “REBIRTH”

Winds of Change

There have been so many unusual energy influences lately that it’s often hard to distinguish WHAT IS WHAT among them. There are changes happening to our overall culture, our group consciousness, and our social awareness in general, just as there is resistance to ALL of those contrasting changes culminating in broad-scale conflicts throughout the globe.Continue reading “Winds of Change”
