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? 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

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...

Chiropractic Care and the Teachable Spirit

Chiropractic Care and the Teachable Spirit

Why is chiropractic care so vital to our well being? What makes chiropractic care so valuable to our lives? How does chiropractic care bridge the gap for those with little resources? Returning to Kenya in January 2015 brought me face to face with my own values. Growing up with mixed feelings from my family regarding chiropractic care, I regarded it with some ambivalence. Having a friend as a chiropractor for 30 years, Dr. Dean Simmons with Simmons Chiropractic Clinic, gave me some appreciation for the practice; however, it came with the respect for the person, and not necessarily his vocation. Remaining open to learning why God wanted me to participate in the Dreamweaver International mission to the Maasai in Amboseli National Park, the teachable spirit was...

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...
