the paths we’re on…

“If you let people break your spirit and detour you from your path, then you have not been true to yourself or those you’re here to touch, those who believe in you.”   Allison DuBois
The path is the goal.” ― Mahatma Gandhi.
Just back from a camping trip where I spent a lot of time walking and thinking about the idea of a path and how significant this is as a metaphor for all of us, as we move from one state to another, from one focus to another…   and then Gary put up this lovely quote, so I felt the need to make this collection of photos from Flickr – to find out who took them click on any of them and I’ve embedded the photographer’s info in the title.   What kind of path are you on?   Not just where is it leading, but what will the journey be like?  I keep looking for a quote that I think is from Caroline Myss, about how Ulysses journey and his adventures depended on who accompanied him…   who is going to be with you on your path?
As well, you might be interested in this upcoming class which Shelley Nessman and I will be leading.

Director of Research, Training and Development, Spectrum Society for Community Living. As well as being responsible for in-house training and research on best practices in the field of helping people with disabilities organize their supports, I support self advocacy groups, contract to provide training and workshops to other agencies and groups and facilitate inclusive research groups. I am the author/illustrator of three books, co-editor of a new anthology for 2012, and co-editor of Spectrum Press. My passion is creating networks of best practice leaders in our field to share person-centred alternatives in how people with disabilities can be facilitated to live lives where their gifts are necessary components in their communities. I am currently half way through a Masters degree in Interdisciplinary studies, focusing on Equity and Adult Education, and particularly on how people with intellectual disabilities may be supported in participatory leadership groups.
