Edits have gone back and forth, revisions, revisits with the content...it IS coming.
Sneak peak to the Introduction:
Decades ago, a seed was planted. My having five children, being the daughter of a midwife and being involved in the (home) birthing community, I use pregnancy and labor as analogies for Life. The experience of my book coming to fruition is no different. The seed was planted by Innate in many (many!) hours of my seminar junkie days, immersed with some of the greats in the profession and the talented resources of many management teachers. Through all the years of being a "seminar junkie," I was truly hooked on the experiential high of learning about chiropractic. I came to believe there is not a “one size fits all” way of practicing, expressing, and experiencing chiropractic. I also have come to know that once we make a call on what chiropractic "looks like," it will evolve, expand, simplify, and be refined many times over as we are all morphing too. My understanding, participation and expression of my “Art” in chiropractic has done just that. To truly connect with anyone, including our self, I believe there must be authenticity.
After many years, I realized I was "pregnant" with a knowing that there has been something growing in me, something meant to come through me. After more seasons passed, perhaps after another baby even (did I mention there are 5?), I began to recognize the parts. "Oh, a head here.” “This feels like a little foot.” “That's a bottom pressed into my ribs" and the like. The chapter content started to become clearer and clearer. “This chapter is growing, that content is being more clearly defined.” And then...like the beautiful gift of pregnancy, it gets heavy...you're ready to move into labor...potentially one of the most beautiful, powerful, most demanding acts of your life.
And so, for what has now become years, I've nested, created several writing nooks, created the website, bought a new computer (4, actually, since “conception”) and organized my notes countless times. I've hired more than capable staff to love our clinic family, leaving me with a bit more time and greater flexibility to write. The last of my human babies, now well into school, also giving me more flexibility. The first signs of early labor began a few years ago and now I'm finally prepared to birth this thing, to serve the profession in a way that I can only hope will impact it a small fraction of how it has impacted me.
