Mastering Life: Why Kenya?

Why would Dr. Warren Bruhl leave one of the largest chiropractic practices on the North Shore of Chicago, which he personally developed, building and leading to its success, for work with a humanitarian organization that provides education, healthcare, and humanitarian aid to the people of the Kimana Rift Valley of Kenya?

Mastering life is about understanding why an individual would pursue a particular course of action, which is far more motivating to those who are potentially interested in aligning with that person for the purpose of assisting them in their cause. Certainly, Dr. Jeff Kahrs has assessed the situation and been inspired by what he has seen of the work that Dr. Bruhl is doing in Kenya. The questions he may have had about the work, the importance of it, his place in it, and how he can help were completely resolved when he went to Kenya in December 2013.

Only when the WHY is clear and when people believe what you believe can a true loyal relationship develop. When we are selective about doing business only with those who believe in our WHY, trust emerges. With trust comes a sense of value, which is the transference of trust, earned by communicating and demonstrating shared values and beliefs,  according to Simon Sinek, author of Start With Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action (2009).

Developing trust with the Maasai has been ongoing through the work of Mr. Ken Taylor and Mrs. Sandy Taylor, of Dreamweaver International, so that when Dr. Bruhl and Dr. Kahrs came with their ability to provide chiropractic care, the people of the Kimana Rift Valley were able to receive it. Dr. Bruhl says,

“This type of healing comes from above down, inside out.” 

Fascinating how Dr. Bruhl describes chiropractic care because that is exactly what happens to the individual who provides healing to people who are in need.

“The healer’s blessing is to receive healing in the process of providing it,”

Dr. Bruhl says, which is precisely what Dr. Kahrs experienced when he went to Kenya. Watching this video will provide insight into the benefits of chiropractic care on the Maasai in Kimana Rift Valley as you see Dr. Bruhl and Dr Kahrs working side by side, mastering life through providing care to the people from the region. Where does that faith come from that would give Dr. Bruhl enough audacity to leave his extremely lucrative healthcare business and provide chiropractic care under an acacia tree in East Africa? It does seem a little unorthodox.

God works on us with a chisel, chipping away until what He wants us to do is revealed little by little. The journey began with a book called, The Hole in the Gospel, written by Richard Stearns, who is currently the President of World Vision. I related to the story of this man leaving a fortune 500 company for humanitarian work. Stearns talked about two pieces of the puzzle: those who have and those who don’t have. It is our job to do for those who do not have. I had no idea what I was going to do, but the first thing I thought of was to go see the work that my mom, Mrs. Sandy Taylor, and my step-dad, Mr. Ken Taylor, were doing in Kenya. —Dr. Warren Bruhl

Why is the work of these two people important, aside from the fact that they are Dr. Bruhl’s parents? What are they doing in Kenya, and why is it significant? More revelations will be discovered as I continue to explore connection after connection in this amazing story.
