The Teachable Spirit of Happy Goldilocks

Being happy in your spirit has to do with understanding what you need or what you lack before you can ever decide what makes you happy. The teachable spirit knows that experiencing hunger, tiredness, or discomfort is the prerequisite for determining what makes you happy. Consider Goldilocks for a moment. Finding the house in the forest occurred when she was hungry. Tasting the three bowls of porridge led to observing: one was too hot one was too cold one was just right Feeling tired led to seeking which chair would best accommodate her need. She thought that the first two chairs were too big and the third one was just right. Sitting in it; however, caused the chair to break, leading to more discomfort. Climbing the stairs in search of a better solution, she...

Visiting Ingrid with the Teachable Spirit

What has happened since the teachable spirit went to Kenya in 2013? Who visited Ingrid with the teachable spirit in 2015? What did they do while they were there? Stepping foot onto the property where Ingrid Education Centre is located after nearly two years absence filled the teachable spirit with an incredible sense of excitement and joy. I could not believe what the director, Douglas Monene, had accomplished in such a short time! The school is double in size and has a second story added to the first, finished latrines, a kitchen, nice office, and a place for the security guard to sleep at night. Experiencing that joy with me were individuals participating in a mission with Dreamweaver International; Dr. Warren Bruhl, the director, Ken and Sandy Taylor, Dr....

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?

It is about high-quality service to others through our work and a keen respect for others’ rights.

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. Dr. Scott Smith invited Marco...
