Beauty in your eyes…
When we sense the world fully, we come to understand its beauty not as an outsider looking in, but as someone who lives and is in full relationship with the world and all its inhabitants.
“The sign of a beautiful person is that they always see beauty in others.”
Have lots of beautiful people in your life

In keeping with bell hooks and Noam Chomsky, I consider myself a public and dissident intellectual. Part of my work is to move beyond (transcend) institutional dogmas that bind me to defend freedom, raising my voice to be heard on behalf of those who seek equity and justice in all their forms.
I completed my PhD in Philosophy of Leadership Studies at Gonzaga University, Spokane, WA. My dissertation and research was how teachers experience becoming teachers and their role as leaders.
I focus on leading, communicating, and innovating in organizations. This includes mindfuful servant-leadership, World Cafe events, Appreciative Inquiry, and expressing one's self through creativity. I offer retreats, workshops, and presentations that can be tailored to your organzations specific needs.
I published peer reviewed articles about schools as learning organizations, currere as an ethical pursuit, and hope as an essential element of adult eductaion. I published three poems and am currently preparing my poetry to publish as an anthology of poetry.
I present on mindful leadership, servant leadership, schools as learning organizations, how teachers experience becoming teachers, assessement, and critical thinking. I facilitate mindfulness, hospitality retreats. and World Cafe Events using Appreciative Inquiry.
I am writing and researching about various forms of leadership, how teachers inform and form their identity as a particular teacher, schools as learning organizations, hope and its anticipatory relationship with the future, and hope as an essential element in learning.
In fact when we sense ourselves as a whole being, not individual traits, emotions or characteristics a connection with everyone and everything becomes apparent.
A recent post discussed this, visualizing the the body as a whole while sitting, we are the breath, nothing else for a brief period of time, sort of.
Besides its benefits for quieting the verbal mind, whole body awareness supports singleness of mind.
Interesting what we bring attention to grows.
It is interesting. Thank you for another wonderful (wonder filled) comment Marty.
