The Art of Integral Education
Igniting the Spark of Lifelong Learning
We invite you to join us in our 8-week online education course! Together we’ll explore the evolutionary edge of education, honoring depth and breadth, spontaneity and rigor, individuality and the power of the group. We’ll address the myriad roles of educator, and how you can keep your own sacred spark from burning out, while nurturing it in others. Learn to bridge the theoretical and the practical as you hear classroom-tested practices from John Gruber and get support from a kindred community of educators. Reclaim your teaching practice as a spiritual path that inspires you, your students, and everyone around you.
