Beside the temple pond
I love haiku. There is a presence in the words because they are so carefully chosen and mix so well with the silence in spaces between.
Beside the temple pond
Is the statue of Buddha
Silent as he was

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.
Thank you Emilie.
Please help me taste this exquisite dish, your view is hidden from my perch. Please expand in what you see, where the passion exists, the ?
I think it is in the silence that views are hidden. Even my view is obscured and not fully revealed. It disappears in the silence, the depth of the pool and I try to express in the next word.
Ever think of posting the cadence of this on a you tube video
I had not. I will consider that for when I get home.
We love anything Temple. We especially love this. The silence leaves us with our own thoughts. Just shows a few words has more impact than a page of meaningless nothings. Great find.
