Re: Seminars: You Get what you Give

There is something to be learned from anyone, no matter how poor a teacher they might be, IF you are there to learn. The principle of "stealing the technique" applies. The "empty cup" might be a stretch for some, but accepting that ones cup "is not yet full" should not be difficult. And so much more is yet possible if the teacher is giving and exceptional. Seminars can't replace repetitive and continuous training under any instructor, but they can definitely "prime the pump" for continued improvement. I find them energizing, and as already stated, a tremendous opportunity to make new friends and renew old acquaintances.
