A wonderful book featuring many of our past seminar presenters, and brought to you by Willow Dea in partnership with Next Step Integral! This timely book provides a vision for educators seeking to accommodate the emerging issues in education by providing stories, strategies, assessment methods, and personal/professional development practices. It is an engaging anthology comprising chapters by educators ranging from elementary teachers to university, who exemplify the integral approach in action.
Education is in a crisis at this time. Increasingly, graduating students are ill prepared to cope with the increasingly complex demands of the 21st century. Integral education offers methods for developing emotional intelligence, spiritual intelligence and constructive coping skills along with the capacity to demonstrate traditional academic performance. Igniting Brilliance: Integral Education for the 21st Century introduces an integral approach; providing lessons, strategies, assessment methods, professional development opportunities and a vision for educators struggling to accommodate the emerging issues in education.
Ultimately, Igniting Brilliance is all about aliveness! It’s about dancing effortlessly through the matrices of complexity in our educational system and our lives. It’s about being willing to stay curious enough to be aware of the subtle and seemingly minor shifts that can affect the way that a message or an idea is perceived. More than being present and engaged, it’s about bringing fresh eyes to the delicate and arduous path of offering one’s Self fully.
