Let’s talk on Diagnostic Hysteroscopy

I’m with a group who for the past week has been able to spend some time even before IDEC, going really deeply into working in gynecology, gynecology and thinking very deeply about our own personal connections to that work and trying to be reflective. One of the things we talked about was the different ways that we work for a better world and there’s one conception that says; there are those ones who resist the treatments, those that are involved in reform, those that recreate and build alternatives and those that re-imagine; that do the vision and the thinking.

The Idea of Democratic Education

In just a few moments it’s to break into triads but we’d like to model that. We’re going to invite German, Heather and Daroun to come and model for us. If you all are here and you’d like to join us up in the circle, I think we had a switch. We had some last minute switches so we’re going to pose the question. Jonathan did you already pose this question? Continue reading “The Idea of Democratic Education”

Let’s Fly Into Space (Oh..Wait..)

I was prediabetic, with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) and Hypothyroidism. I needed to make drastic changes. I was in bad shape.When I walked into the school I had the privilege to meet Harry, Steve & Angela upfront. They all broke down the curriculum and told me first hand about the plans for the school. It was a very new school without accreditations yet. Continue reading “Powered in the ARX”

Lucky Says No

Lucky said that life is nothing but vanity. “Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity.” (Ecclesiastes 1:2) He had pursued knowledge and learning only to find that it was vain. Knowledge did not give him joy, it only increase his sorrow. In Ecclesiastes two he continued to show the sorrows and vanity of this world. Continue reading “Lucky Says No”
