Thank you Maria Montessori!

Maria Montessori paved the way for us and gave us a road map for essential ideas in education. Among these:
• Honoring the Spirit of the Child
• Learning through Doing
• Practical Life
• A Peace Curriculum to relate to Self, one another, Nature, and the World.
• Cosmic Education meant to elicit a sense of wonder in the universe while also feeling connected to it.

Vision towards the future

When we understand that the speed of technology is becoming a complete game changer, the call for Transformed Education becomes even more prominent. Hear the call for Humans to stay in control of the growing presence of Artificial Intelligence through the Guidance and Light and Power of their Inner Spirit.
The Covid 19 experience has illumined the world as to many advantages of the on-line learning. There are immense resources available, a capacity to reach people in remote areas and the power to interconnect the world in the Educational realm. Yet, as computers are teaching each other, even beyond the means of the programmers to keep up, the time to befriend and embrace our inherent sacred nature, even in the educational context, is becoming paramount to our survival. Enter into the discussion and make your contribution on this important perspective heard.
