Professionalism and the Teachable Spirit

What makes people stand out in the work force? What characteristics help an individual have superior results in their career? How does the teachable spirit define professionalism? Professionalism is defined by our inner character, the behavior we exhibit, and the image we project. It is about high-quality service to others through our work and a keen respect for others’ rights. Consequently, professionalism becomes part of the fabric of our life, the very nature that we engage with people on a daily basis. While there are many characteristics that can be included in a list of soft skills, here is what the teachable spirit defines as professionalism: Strong Work Ethic Positive Attitude Good Communication Skills Time Management Skills Problem-Solving...

The Teachable Spirit of Marco

Who is Marco? What was he doing in Kimana, Kenya? How did his teachable spirit help the Maasai? Marco, the Maasai interpreter from Tanzania, wound his way into our hearts through his passion for sharing the understanding of chiropractic care with his fellow Maasai. Leaving his boma in Tanzania to become a tour guide, Marco traveled to Arusha to learn the necessary skills for that vocation: how to drive a vehicle mechanics first aid the animals of the region During a lull in his work in January, Dreamweaver International came to Kimana with a medical team from Rocky Vista University College of Osteopathic Medicine accompanied by three chiropractors, Dr. Warren Bruhl, Dr. Jeff Kahrs, and Dr. Dave Neubauer, and other medical personnel.

Trophic Cascades with the Teachable Spirit

Trophic Cascades with the Teachable Spirit

What is a trophic cascade? What happens when wolves are reintroduced into an ecosystem? What can the teachable spirit learn from wolves changing rivers? Recently, the teachable spirit stumbled on this beautiful metaphor about how wolves change rivers. Essentially, the idea is that the absence of wolves causes the environment to disintegrate. The entire ecosystem is shored up with the reintroduction of wolves. I love this example of how the presence of one creature completely changes the landscape and outcome for all concerned. Personally, I have experienced the effect of a trophic cascade in my own life, where one individual has changed the entire landscape. I also see it in other circumstances around the world; for example, Dr. Jeff Kahrs stabilizing the...

Money Truths with the Teachable Spirit

Recently, the teachable spirit attended a Fundraising from the Heart workshop featuring Lynne Twist, author of the book, Soul of Money. Lynne’s philosophy resonates with me more than any other approach to money I have ever encountered. I traveled to the Upaya Center in Santa Fe, New Mexico via Albuquerque, to broaden my understanding of the subject. The following information is taken from my notes at that workshop. What is the truth about money? How can these truths transform our life? How can the teachable spirit find true prosperity? Meeting Buckminster “Bucky” Fuller became  a serendipity of Lynne’s work with The Hunger Project, whom she met towards the end of his life when he was well into his 80’s. Lecturing all over the...

Money Myths with the Teachable Spirit

We make the mistake of putting money in the center because we live in a culture that values money highly. We need to defang our view of money because we have hurts and wounds around money, and suffering around insufficiency. It is not so much a function of less or more; the wealthiest people have the most upset. They cannot sleep because there are so many things that could go up or down. Individuals born into families of wealth feel uncomfortable with it. The vicious cycle of wealth creates just as much suffering as the vicious cycle of poverty. —Lynne Twist, Fundraising from the Heart workshop, Santa Fe, New Mexico, September 2014 How did the myths surrounding money get created? What are the three pervasive myths regarding money? How do these lies have a...
