“Rather than going into all of this thinking, I can be anything I want to be, the approach you’re taking is I don’t know yet what I can become. You don’t know where any of this might take you; it’s not possible to know that now. But what you learn about yourself and what excites you won’t be abstract; it will be very concrete knowledge born of practical experience. Over time, you open up paths that you could not have imagined, out of which emerge options that you never would have seen before. Although we think that taking a rejuvenating weekend walk in the woods is how we reconnect with the world and with ourselves, this attitude leads us to greater disconnection from both. We need to think of our weekday life differently. The Way isn’t something we reach while walking in the woods on the weekend. It’s something we bring about actively through […] Read More »

Here is my final presentation to the Board of Directors as at the brand new Kaiser Permanente San Leandro medical center – Thursday, May 15th, 2014. Like everything on this blog, the presentation is a reflection of my thoughts and I am solely responsible for the content. LIU-Final-Board-Presentation-5-2014-1 Introductory Remarks from Chairman of the Board, Chris Palkowski As many of you know, Davis will be exiting today as Roseville’s elected representative. Davis is leaving as the longest serving Roseville short-term director – three terms over nine years.

He has consistently improved the […] Read More »
