Pat West combines a rare blend of education, travel, work experience and introspection to produce a work uniquely her own. She balances an array of traditional credentials with non-traditional schooling in music, yoga,world scriptures and on-the-job training in a host of work settings.West attended Oberlin College, where she took a B.A. in history and philosophy, while performing in the conservatory orchestra and string ensembles as an "amateur." Her M.A. in English and Ph.D. in Educational Administration are from the UW-Madison. At the Robert Schumann Konservatorium in D�sseldorf, Germany, West participated in Sandor Vegh's master violin class, at the same time teaching English-as-a-Second-Language at the state Volkshochschule. Later, she worked as a confidential administrative secretary at the UW, while also training along-side pioneers of the holistic health movement. She spent personal time in Spring Green, enjoying the hospitality of an extended family of Frank Lloyd Wright apprentices.For over 35 years, West has immersed herself in the I Ching, the ancient Chinese compendium of natural law. She's applied the principals of change mapped in this perennial leadership manual to the organizations she's moved through, observing the dynamics of work-place relationships in hospitals, law firms, corporations, small businesses and schools.As the owner of a small business, +A Positive Action Press, Dr. West has published a user-friendly version of the I Ching called The Common Sense Book of Change and The Ultimate Personal Survival Guide: 64 Essays on the Book of Change. In addition, she's produced a version of the world-loved Tao Te Ching which illumines its I Ching and yogic underpinnings, Two Sides of a Coin: Lao Tze's Common Sense Way of Change. A very private person, West is currently retired and lives quietly in rural Wisconsin, USAFor more information and updates visit www.RethinkingSurvival.com.
