Product Description & Reviews
The Heart of Learning asks teachers and students to recommit themselves to what they love most in education. The renown contributors outline a map for enabling us to connect with the very reasons why we teach and learn thus to achieve greater fulfillment in both. Incisive essays by Parker Palmer, Rachel Naomi Remen, and the Tibetan lama Dozgchen Ponlop Rinpoche examine how our unique, individual experiences of the sacred can profoundly enrich how we learn and teach. Writings by bell hooks and the Dalai Lama show how we simultaneously can cultivate both individual beliefs and openness to the diversity of the contemporary classroom. Works by Huston Smith and Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi explore our need to balance our past histories and traditions with the needs of present and future generations.This extraordinary collection of original work provides a unified, inspiring, and immensely practical new paradigm for how teaching and learning can mean more, accomplish more, and inspire the best in each of us. This book is a must for every teacher, student, parent, and anyone who loves to learn. Education can and should be a far more meaningful endeavor than the accumulation of facts, figures, or skills, according to editor and educator Steven Glazer. At its highest calling, education is the process of bringing forth one's innate identity and creative urges, learning from the wisdom and traditions of our elders and understanding one's connection and place in the world. Seem like lofty, pie-in-the-sky goals? They shouldn't, claims Glazer, cofounder of the Naropa Institute School of Continuing Education and the person responsible for assembling this outstanding collection of original essays. Spiritual and cultural sages such as bell hooks, the Dalai Lama, Rachel Naomi Remen, M.D., and Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi speak to the book's four core themes: "The Ground of Learning;" "Identity;" "Relationship and Community;" and "Tradition and Innovation." Teachers, parents, and students alike will greatly appreciate this articulate and convincing blend of spirituality and education. --Gail Hudson
