Wow. That quote goes into my training journal and I hope I can live up to it in some small way. The small amount of teaching I have been doing in the last few years has opened my eyes more than I imagined. How I love people with new/different perspectives, as they constantly challenge me to see things in a new light. Chuck you beautifully verbalize what it means to learn from everyone. Thanks.

I'll second that. As a post or a book I would really love to hear how you (Chuck and George) teach, how you transmit, and how you communicate. While specific skills are interesting I am finding myself more and more interested in the skill of sharing. This is seldom easy as sharing is generally a two way street and requires as much input as output. I recoginze I have a long way to go here and any assistance is greatly appreciate. Please keep us informed of any public material you have available.

Take care,
