Blog Post: Is conversation action?

David Gurteen

By David Gurteen I am often asked how to turn conversation into action. It's a crazy question as conversation is action. Let me justify that. It is evident that conversation does not change the physical world. Conversation, however, changes the wiring of our brains. It transforms our minds. It changes what we think about, and it shapes how we think. Conversation creates the conditions, in which actions and changes we would like to see in the world become possible.

Can Only Women Be Believed on Gender?

Nine Shift

. Can only women be believed on the science of gender? In the last month two articles, one in The New York Times, and one in The Washington Post, have chipped away at the false feminist beliefs regarding gender, citing the science and biology of gender that every scientist already knows is fact. Both people allowed in print are women. One female scientist told me that her work on gender receives criticism, but less so because she is a woman.

By David Gurteen I love quotations. This one is a favourite: I do not accept any absolute formulas for living. No preconceived code can see ahead to everything that can happen in a man's life. As we live, we grow and our beliefs change. They must change. So I think we should live with this constant discovery. We should be open to this adventure in heightened awareness of living. We should stake our whole existence on our willingness to explore and experience.
