A certain swordsman in his declining years said the following: In one’s life. there are levels in the pursuit of study. In the lowest level, a person studies but nothing comes of it, and he feels that both he and others are unskillful. At this point he is worthless. In the middle level he is still useless but is aware of his own insufficiencies and can also see the insufficiencies of others. In a higher level he has pride concerning his own ability, rejoices in praise from others, and laments the lack of ability in his fellows. This man has worth. In the highest level a man has the look of knowing nothing. These are the levels in general; but there is one transcending level, and this is the most excellent of all. This person is aware of the endlessness of entering deeply into a certain Way and never thinks of himself as having finished. He truly knows his own insufficiencies and never in his whole life thinks that he has succeeded. He has no thoughts of pride but with self-abasement knows the Way to the end. It is said that Master Yagyu once remarked, “I do not know the way to defeat others, but the way to defeat myself.” Throughout your life advance daily, becoming more skillful than yesterday, more skillful than today. This is never-ending.– Hagakure, Yamamoto Tsunetomo
Body Language Training
I offer training in the Science of People’s Body Language methodology. This could be one-on-one coaching, a group training, or a customized program to meet your needs.
I’m a candidate in training to becoming a certified NVC coach from the CNVC. I’m happy to help to introduce folks to NVC, coach people on their existing skills, or help mediate in different personal or work situations.
I can present on body language or nonviolent communication to small, medium, or large groups. This will be a fun and interactive session that will leave a crowd energized with some new skills they can practice.
