Lighting Fires: Deepening Education Through Meditation

Lighting Fires: Deepening Education Through Meditation (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


Teaching challenges teachers to develop both professionally and personally through the process of self-education. Jorgen Smit adresses the inner path of the teacher, the emerging human "becoming" who lives in every adult as well as in each child. Often "born teachers", who "light fires" rather than "fill buckets", work on deepening their teaching through meditation. Practical examples are described which can help develop the powers of thinking, perception, living in time or "becoming" and imagination. Insight is given into understanding the temperaments, and how sleep can become a transforming influence in child development.
