  • Teaching styles

    I just got chewed out by my better half as I was a bit abrupt with our daughter. I was informed that my style is a bit abrasive at best. Let me point out that I may be of age to be an elder, I have been very selective about what I will teach anyone.

    The issue is--disrespect for an image of Kokopelli as it was made by white folks. No matter who made it--it still carries the energy of K, and should be (in my book) respected accordingly.

    My comments were to the effect that when you say something, and do another, you are more wannabe than on the path.

    I need guidance and suggestions, thanks so much

      Thanks for the feedback. Always nice to have an open and fresh perspective. It came to me on the way to work this AM (at 4!) that it was the same style my old Apache teacher used. I guess I picked up more from him than I realized. Amazing how much I've missed him these past 7 years.

        Hey Fox, as a bro I still have to say, remember Golden Lake a few years back when we met? When you got home your better half cried on the phone for me to continue the work with you. You have strayed from the path,,, maybe time for another visit and some learnin'?? Miss you up here, been too long again.
        Listen to my heart, not just my mouth! The most powerfull thing we can do is,,,share,,, if we don't it dies with us.

        It is the year of the bear, I am sharpening my claws and will no longer tollerate harrassment.

          I came up with a really good topic. Something I'm looking at right now. What have been your tougher lessons as a jingle dancer? What are you thankful for? I don't want to have to limit it just to us... but for now it's a start.
