About ivonprefontaine

I completed a PhD at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. Previously, I taught for 20 years and spent the last 14 years teaching in an incrediable hybrid school setting. My dissertation topic and research were how teachers experience becoming who teachers, as human subjects. For me, teaching is a calling and vocation that allows me to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what will call me. We have begun a small consulting and leadership firm called Rocky River Leadership & Consulting Ltd.

  2. Mindfulness /meditation is so simple it seems disregarded. To just be, mindfully means to let go of the “Ego’s” grasp and be present.

    Most of the benefits of mindfulness are subtle, simple and hidden, not cognitively relevant.

    I share with my daughter the idea that “who am I, has no subject. It means nothing to her. It is not an intellectual property. You have to sit for a while and experience the organic spirit share that you are fine to know.

    How many viewers will do anything, take an action, have this important sentence become real in someone’s life?

    • Simplicity and complexity are entangled. We easily overlook the obvious and disregard it even when it sits in front of us in the open. When we sit quietly and allow stillness to seek us out, that is scary, we find peace and we just become with the universe.

      • It is the balance then
        Left prefrontal cortex positive emotions or right prefrontal cortex negative emotions

        It is mind calm using the breath or the mind racing, under stress, in crisis

        It is now or then

        Mushashi would say you need to know complexities to understand simplicity

        To know what exist is to also know what does not exist, the void

      • It sounds similar Jacques Derrida who basically said that for presence to exist suggests absence.
