Inner Life Wisdom and Education
This workshop explores the nature of inner life wisdom and its relationship to education. Specifically, this workshop examines an approach to education that seeks to balance and harmonize acquired intellectual knowledge with revealed inner life wisdom. In this context, the concept of our true or higher Self, who we really are, is examined and how this source can be brought into aware consciousness through approaches such as meditation, visualization, and inner life dialogue. The spiritual heart center as the gateway to imagination, intuition, and creative inspiration is explored and how striving for higher knowledge and wisdom takes us on the path to wholeness in education and everyday life.
