Start Your Digital Smudging Ceremony


As our way of expressing our appreciation for your visit to this website, we offer you the following "Digital Smudging Ceremony" for your own private use, whenever you may need it.  This version of smudging (cleaning)is taken from the original teachings of the four directions also known as the medicine wheel and from the Hawaiian teaching, Ho - oponopono.  Your first tool for managing your experience!


INSTRUCTIONS


Pick one problem, issue or concern you have right now.  Keep it firmly in mind as you start from the Eastern doorway (I Love You), going clockwise all the way to the Northern doorway (Thank You).  Repeat the four statements as often as you'd like, keeping whatever it is that is troubling you in mind. When you are finished, allow yourself to feel a heightened sense of gratitude to the grandfathers and grandmothers when finishing.  North American Indigenous Tribes use the circle and this is one of their foundation teachings.

LEARNING EXPERIENCES

We help learners gain more mind so that they can achieve their life and business goals (goal fulfillment).  "Mindwidth, means what Mullainathan and Shafir (2013) describe as "bandwidth", which measures our computational capacity, our ability to pay attention, to make good decisions, to stick with our plans, and to resist temptations.  Bandwidth correlates with everything from intelligence and SAT performance to impulse control and success on diets" (p.41).  We prefer using the term MINDWIDTH over capacity when it comes to the mind, and use capacity to refer to strategy, structure, staffing and systems.  What we mean by learners are people who are ready and perhaps already converted to the benefits of learning, and have a problem or a challenge they want to solve, overcome or eliminate quickly. We believe in ambition.  Ambition is captured in the following quote, "Ambition is the spur that makes man struggle with destiny: It is heaven's own incentive to make purpose great, and achievement greater" - Orison Swett Marden.  We help develop paradigms.  What is a PARADIGM?  A paradigm is a theory or a group of ideas about how something should be done, made, or thought about.  Once established the paradigm generates "memes" to strengthen itself.    We market memes.  Memes are a snippet of culture, a thought, behavior or artifact and spreads via - transmission and adaption.


We prefer using Adult Education principles and practices, known as the science of Andragogy, of which Malcolm Knowles popularized in the 1960's and most recently adopted (2000),Heutagogical learning.  This type of adult learning environment is based on a number of assumptions including the learners having a wealth of knowledge and experience (mindwidth) to draw from, the learners being ready, able and willing to learn in their own preferred style and the learners being self - determined in their pursuit of knowledge, skill and attitude.  In other words, learners are not simply empty vessels waiting to be filled with content and information.  Learners know what they need to learn and will learn at their own pace and time.


Keeping the concepts of Adult Education in mind we facilitate and guide (process over content) learning more than anything else.  However, in certain learning assignments, we may provide our own specialized paradigms to the learning experience, not as the experts but rather as a functional resource to the learning experience. All learning experiences can be customized to fit your needs.  We recommend a fact finding event first before designing and conducting the actual program.  Here are some of the learning experiences we can facilitate and customize to meet your needs.  Look them over and lets talk!
