    Searching for Good Vibrations in Troubled Times

    Posted by Brian Luke Seaward on Apr 16, 2020 10:27:24 AM

    Forty years ago I met the renowned energy healer, Olga Worrall, and the experience changed my life. It was nothing she did per se, just that it was amazing to meet someone of this caliber, so authentic, so sincere, so serene. A day after meeting Ogla, I had perhaps THE most spiritual incident.; best described as something between a full Kundalini experience and a brilliant light from a near-death experience all while meditating. Those of you who know me well, know that I have had several mystical experiences throughout my life, beginning as a child. But on that day, things became validated. So many dangling pieces fell into place during this mystical experience, I no longer felt like an outsider. Moreover, it drove my passion and curiosity to learn more about the mind-body-spirit connection, and this has charted my career and life ever since.

    The Age Old Question – 'How to Engage Students in an Online Course?'

    Posted by Rachel Ellison on Feb 22, 2020 5:54:41 PM

    I teach in a fully online program so it's important to motivate my students early on. One thing that I find effective is to start the semester out with something personal and fun, not necessarily course related. I'll ask them to post a picture that describes them or their dream vacation destination, etc. It breaks the ice in a way where it makes the course less tense and stressful the first week rather than jumping right into the content. This simple activity seems to break the ice and motivates students to do well and participate right from the beginning.
