Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. We have guided missiles and misguided men.
One aspect of Dr. King’s writing that is often overlooked was his concern for the pace of scientific and technological advances. It takes caring and compassionate people, and I think most scientists are just that, to guide the world in humane ways. This does not mean living outside our relationships with the world, but to live in them, encountering them in vulnerable and unexpected ways.
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.
I heard this quote long ago but had forgotten. I can only imagine what King would think today.
I agree we can only imagine.
Ouch! I think King saw far into the future.
So true. Our technology has surpassed our humanity in so many instances…
Hannah Arendt commented in the late 1950’s we might have the language to describe technology it was increasing at such a fast pace.
