Here is the deal about training.  There is A LOT of information out there.  I will be a student for life, there is too much opportunity to improve and expand.


I L O V E to learn and make an effort to seek training that offers something I don't feel I am naturally inclined towards, or maybe even resist.  I suspect this is a good way to grow.  The thing is, no one approach has ever proven to be more effective than another.  So I keep reading, listening, and asking. 

You have probably read books, know theorists, and love podcasts that I know nothing about.  If it's important to you, let me know and I am happy to look into it.
