Opening ~ Tonglen...Breathe in any darkness and exhale love, light.
Intension for today is to flush out the Direction of Education. The purpose of the breakouts is to discern the most potent wisdom you will share with the next generations coming up. Imagine the younger people coming to the elders to seek direction and clarity ~ what will you tell them to inspire their evolution?
Phil Moore and Starla Lewis shared about their role in education over many years.
Thomas - education means a leaning out - from the underworld to the light. The higher education is the rebirth of the soul, diving into the mysteries.
30 minute breakout with 3 people in a room followed by a share. Education is a transmission. There must be ability in the student. Students are encouraged to be free thinkers. Must contribute back. Get the basic survival skills so we are all self reliant. Each is unique and an individual who comes with their own special gifts - soul path - individual creative uniqueness. Needs to move toward self-learning as well as be part of the whole. All based in consciousness - be free and able to learn. Free thinkers - no brain washing. Lean into adversity to learn from it and turn it into wisdom Mind heart body soul connection Prioritize imagination for younger students Prioritize receptivity to the earth’s intelligence Appreciate both light and dark, colonizers and colonized Synthesize from every system Embody learnings and wisdom Sovereignty - choice Loved into being - the divine spark in you is nurtured Natural world is the teacher Teach to the soul’s code Wholeness and the implicate order Sexuality - learning about our bodies, consent, touch Determining own truth Call forth that which wants to unfold Religious Mathematics Learning reincarnation - past life learning Politics - each school designs its own curriculum with input by students Soul education Enlightenment education / meditation Myths and stories combined with intellect - reactivate the stories Bring back the goddess and the muses Poetry, arts, theatre Religious studies should be world-wide Science and art are on thing Resourcefulness and resilience Learn from elders Growing food Focus on outcomes / intentions and the curriculum will reveal itself Each person elevated as a unique source who matters Universal human purpose - what are we within the macro? Presence - what we are all looking for When conscious teachers know what is needed at any time Needs to be an unlearning process
