    Are Racially Biased Teachers Bullying Students?

    in Women

    Whe you're in elementary school, a teacher seems to be the most powerful person in your life. A teacher can send home a bad report, keep you from passing to the next grade, publicly humiliate you in class, and make your time in school a nightmare. Or a teacher can be the doorway to enlightenment, inspiration and lifelong motivation toward high achievement. Teachers have a lot of influence, however, they are just regular human beings with faults and shortcomings just like everybody else. When teachers bring their own prejudices and biases into the classroom, they can make life hell for the students they disfavor. How do you find out if your child is being "bullied" by a teacher that really does dislike them, for whatever reason? What should you say in a private meeting with a teacher?

    Teachers & Parents: Working Together or at Odds

    in Self Help

    Who’s responsible for a child to learn math, reading, comprehension, writing and other fundamental skills? Is it the sole responsibility of the parent/guardian or the teacher? Do you think that they should share the responsibility? Yes, is the obvious answer, but is it really that simple?  “It takes a village to raise a child.” In other words, it takes the encouragement from many individuals in a child’s life to assist them as they learn valuable social skills and strive to achieve academic success. After all, these children are our future, the future leaders of our world. Are we working together? Are we, teachers and parents, doing our part to help them become productive members of society?

    All Spiritual Teachers are NOT Created Equal.....

    in Lifestyle

    There are Spiritual teachers of light and insight and then there are people calling themselves" spiritual teachers" who are full of ego that currupt and devalue an essence, a belief of integrity, once constructed from pure intent.


    Here we look at a brave accounting of the documentary called "Karmageddon" , written by Filmaker and author Jeff Brown. It takes a look at how people of influence, anywhere in life, but specifically here in the spiritual community,  can use their egos to manipulate, here in the most profane, in the name of God, or as in Spirituality.


    Walking one's talk , is both the responsibility and evolution necessary in one who claims to be a teacher of any kind, let alone spirituality. I have watched too many people , come in and ride a wave that is a good monetary platform and hold no integrity in what they are doing. This creates distrust among an industry, but within an industry based upon justice, ethics, and love, we often see egomongers claiming to be enlightened or a spiritual elite.. tainting those who come with pure intention.


    This documentary shows people why they should never give their power away to anyone, and how easy it is for manipulators to prey upon vulnerable souls; be aware.
