Awakening the Inherent Spirituality of Children—An Interactive Dialogue
The aim of education is the enlightenment of humanity. We accomplish this by awakening optimal well-being in the whole of the child. Participating and drawing forth this self-actualization in our students is the deep desire of every holistic educator. We can do this. First, we have to dissolve the many mistaken notions of the spiritual nature of the child. Then we have to inquire deeply into the way children of different
ages organize their world. We can gain compelling insight into the unfolding of the child’s consciousness through all ages of childhood. And we can discern the kinds of relationships that support and nurture the development of that consciousness so that our students experience optimal well-being and realize self actualization throughout their lives as their natural and unimpeachable birthright. Then, and only then, do we meet the aim of the enlightenment of humanity. All other goals of education—academic excellence, social justice, environmental sensitivity, physical, music and artistic acumen—are secondary. And Each of these will be competently expressed relative to the unique proclivities and talents of each student. Only the field of this profound awakening dissolves illusions of separation and allows these talents to ripen in authentic interconnectedness with all life. Let’s come together on this critical concern for holistic educators. We have much to offer and so do you. It’s time to step into the full expression of holistic education.
