Integral Education

     “When does integral education begin?" It is beginning-less! Hence it is a fresh beginning every day, every moment. It is a spiritual adventure undertaken by the parent, teacher and student together. None of the three has authority over the others, all of them being part of this maturing process. All of them learn all the time from one another and from themselves. In this spirit of cooperation there is no compulsion, no surrender, no repression and no rebellion.

      Education is the expression of whatever is best in man and the spirit of education is the focusing of attention within one's own heart to observe what is thus expressed!  Such observation is itself maturity.
