Today, in our Chiropractic Principles group session, we were broken up into small groups and asked to act out a skit pertaining to the following words: professionalism, boundaries, compassion and conflict of interest. There is a reason we did not choose acting and film as a profession. Despite our inability to convincingly act, we are able to identify the main topics of each skit.

On October 5th, we had our third Chiropractic Principles small group session. In this session, we were asked to create a time line of the history of chiropractic was would be presented a diversity of people, including: the government, medical doctors, first year medical students, as well as the general public.

This philosophy workbook was actually super helpful while brainstorming up my philosophy paper. I got really involved with it. I wanted to share it because its a bit more personal, and shares my thought process throughout my writing (found in the literary works archives). I really enjoyed choosing an artifact for this workbook as well. The medicine wheel was a no brainer for me, and I am glad I got to explore all of its components and related it back to the way I wish to practice chiropractic in the future.
For my workbook artifact, I decided to use the Longhouse medicine wheel and seven grandfather teachings, from the Quiet Land Healing Lodge in Temagami Ontario. If interested, you can read more about it here: http://www.thelonghouse.org/Medicine-Wheel-and-Seven-Grandfather-Teachings.html
