The Grace of Great Things
What if the goal of education becomes making visible and lifting up the souls of all those involved in the process? How might this way of reclaiming and re-grounding the learning-teaching relationship transform both the individual souls involved and the institutional souls of the systems themselves? Parker Palmer reflects on these and other profound questions with respect and grace in an article adapted from a keynote address he delivered on Spirituality in Education sponsored by the Naropa Institute. Weaving together rich and varied stories of Merlin the Magician, Rosa Parks and the poet Ranier Maria Rilke with those of Nobel prize winning scientist Barbara McClintock and the discoverers of the DNA molecule; Parker describes "education at its best these profound human transactions called knowing, teaching, and learning". http://www.dailygood.org/story/1685/the-grace-of-great-things-reclaiming-the-sacred-in-knowing-teaching-and-learning-parker-j-palmer/
