Week Ending September 28th, 2018
Content Covered: Koan
I recently wrote a post on Koan’s, you can find the article here: https://voraxious.com/2018/09/27/koan/
Essentially, a Koan is a question or statement that can‘t be grasped by reason; they are paradoxical in nature and require you to create space for uncertainty.
In the article I provide a quote by Rumi and a question for you to ponder; before I share my thoughts on what both those mean to me, I’d like to hear from you!
Take a moment after reading the post on Koan’s to wrestle with the how your mind decides to create logic and meaning; perhaps you’ll learn more about yourself than you think.
Additionally, this week I had my Design Thinking class presentation on the Xpanse idea that I proposed last week; and it was a huge success. Everyone loved the idea, and thought there was real value and application and now I am in the process of hashing out the details.
Plus there is a club on campus called HIVE, that focuses on educational start-up ideas – and I’m like ding ding, I should go network with them. Who knows? Maybe I’ll find a partner who is passionate about EI and the intersection of Improv and Application!
Wish me luck!
