David at Barsetshirediaries sent me to this blog. I enjoyed reading the list. I thought about how I feel when our grandson hugs me. I feel wanted and loved. Hugging is an expression of love and sharing love with one another. When we hug, we have an opportunity to be present to each other.

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.
Many thanks for the re-blog Ivon.
You are welcome David. It seems it was enjoyed by others. Hugs back.
Living on Hawaii Island, we never take for granted the beauty of people who greet one another with a hug. Always. Sending you a virtual hug across the miles! Aloha.
Thank you Bela and a virtual hug back at you. I was raised in a French-Canadian home with little hugging. Kathy’s family hugged all the time. She hugs more readily than I do.
Well, my husband was raised by an old country Finn or two, so there’s a good understanding of the no-hugging type. Still, he’s learned 😉 Aloha.
Sending you a bear hug, Ivon! ʕ ⊃･ ◡ ･ ʔ⊃
Thank you and one right back at you.
