Spirit in Education
John Fowler, PhD, (United States) TIES Faculty, Senior Team Leader, Denison Montessori School, Denver Colorado, creator of The Time Line of Light
References to the spirit of the child, the school, the nation, and the planet abound. The questions this seminar explores are simple, yet profound and challenging: What does spirit mean through a pedagogical lens? …the lens of science? …culture, literature, classroom management? …professional growth? How might spirit be a force in the preparation of children, adolescents and adults in their various stages ofpersonal evolution? What does it look like in both a sectarian and non-sectarian classroom? What spiritual practices lend themselves to the personal life of an educator? Can we find unifying principles behind these many faces of spirit?
