What I saw was impossible to derive at first but then later became blindingly simple. I saw that if Being is truly brought forth and is present in education conversations, aspects of learning magically become vastly simplified and accessible. Once the epistemology is clear, whatever it is that is learned becomes easier to own. I didn't understand that at the time and I still don't. However it doesn't require understanding and it doesn't require proof to be successfully applied. I have seen it work over and over and over again since then, both in Werner's seminars as well as in my own.
I have proven that theory many, many, many times over the years. I've had opportunities to lead seminars for incredibly intelligent people, some of whom had double, treble, and quadruple PhDs - there was no shortage of already intelligence in the participants in my seminars. And yet I was still able to make a contribution and to make a huge difference in the value they got from the technical material, out of who I was being as I led their seminars.
Good morning Everyone.
This is more a change of state letter than a goodbye letter, but nonetheless I am writing to say goodbye.
Having traveled out of state to work almost every week for the past twenty years, I have now committed myself to being as much of a full time Mom as I can be so I can be with my children at every available possible moment until they have flit the coop and are living under their own steam.
I have accepted a position of employment with the New Technology Foundation right here in Napa. The New Technology Foundation is not simply leading edge. They are so far ahead of the curve that software has not yet been written for what we want to accomplish.
The New Technology Foundation supports twenty schools around the world. Forty more will be added in the coming year alone. This is bleeding edge work, and it is hard to believe that I can say goodbye to the cattle outside my home window at 6:50am and be seated at my desk at 7:00am. That's a huge change from the kinds of interstate commutes I have been used to.
I have built a back end database which will hold all records from all schools internationally. I have built a website through which the database will be accessed by administrators, teachers, parents, and students.
The database is DB2. The code is Java. The platform is WebSphere.
I will no longer be available to you as a trainer for hire, at least for the next seven years by when my youngest child will be eighteen. And by then, who knows what any of us will be doing ...
Working with you has given me an extraordinary life. It is really hard to say that because it sounds so trite. But I want you to know that I have been gifted as a direct result of everything you and I did together.
Thank You for Everything.
Being with you and working with you for the two decades that we have been partners has been a privilege and a blast.
All the Best.
