IMAGINE….John Lennon, Winnegrad

To paraphrase the immortal song IMAGINE, I hope that I do not diminish the strong, authentic message. To start small, let us IMAGINE the emotional message setting the tone in the workplace. YOU MAY SAY THAT I’M A DREAMER. BUT I’M NOT THE ONLY ONE.   IMAGINE ALL THE PEOPLE […]

WHY FENCES…Lao Tzu, Winnegrad

FENCE: a barrier, enclosure used to prevent entrance for protection, to confine, or to mark a boundary. For establishing exclusive right to possession. An archaic definition; a means of defense, to avoid giving direct answers.   Why is it that many of us prefer having an imaginary FENCE around our […]

DID WE TAKE IT TOO FAR?…Winnegrad

What resonates better with you? A combination of Bergamot, Apple, Muguet Magnolia, Patchouly, Sandalwood and Amber.

THE TRACKS WE LEAVE…winnegrad

Knowledge is of the past. Wisdom is of the future. Wisdom is a never-ending journey, it is life, the lessons we learn from life. In life we sometimes have difficult times, those times can be good because if we learn from them we will become stronger. That is where we […]

THE “LONG BODY”…winnegrad

The ”LONG BODY” is perception of the present moment, it is the sum of everything. The Iroquois talk of the “LONG BODY” as such; Through your senses your body extends beyond its immediate boundaries, {e.g. lacrosse stick, paint brush, violin, hammer}. You are connected via the “LONG BODY” to the […]

EMPTY YOUR CUP…winnegrad

To be empty of preconceived ideas is good. “To taste my cup of water you must first empty your cup.” Said Bruce Lee. This philosophy is good to use when discussing ideas with another. There are many that want to say what their belief is, rather than be open to […]
