James Carter and Friends The dictionary definition of spizzerinctum is chutzpah, guts, nerve, backbone, determination, ardour, or zeal. The origins of the term can be traced to the 1910s to 1920s when it was made popular by BJ Palmer. BJ said that “great Chiropractors are loaded with spiz, their magnetic and abundant energy flows through every cell of their being”. James Carter recalls attending ‘spizz’ sessions at Parker Seminars with Dr Art Aston bringing on various doctors to describe the miracles they have seen in practice, the growth in their practices, the benefit of having procedures and systems, the value of Dr Jim's principles and fundamental axioms and the inspiration and motivation that flows from that. In these particular sessions, there was no procedural ral ‘left brain’ stuff. We got that in the other sessions. But what we did get was something we could not get anywhere else and that was the ethos, the essence, the passion and the fire. In this compelling session, James Carter and friends will fire up your spizzerinctum!
