The materialist philosophy that has dominated Western civilization for the past four hundred years is coming to an end. In "Only the Sacred: Transforming Education in the Twenty-first... More > Century," we are introduced to a new vision of reality where we sense a more profound world within the material world we know so well. In this remarkable collection of articles originally published in "Chrysalis," a publication of the Center for Education, Imagination and the Natural World, we journey with twenty-three educators through an exploration of fundamental questions of our time, a path of inner schooling for educators, and practices where a new understanding of a sacred universe is actualized in diverse educational settings. Inspired by the mentoring of Thomas Berry, this collection makes it clear that the depth and fullness of the universe, from the stars in the heavens to the dirt beneath our feet, cannot be known by the intellect alone. Only a sense of the sacred, deep within the human soul, will reveal the whole.< Less
Creativity and Consciousness: The Sources of Inspiration By Michelle Bien et al.
Paperback: $23.50
Prints in 3-5 business days
Excerpt from the Introduction, written by Martha Winona Travers, Ph.D.: “This book represents the work of five artists who met over fourteen weeks to explore creativity. The program endeavors... More > to explore the interconnections between states of consciousness and creativity as it applies to the arts and all other disciplines. Indigenous peoples speak of 'original medicine,' the unique gift that each person carries that becomes a healing force when fully expressed. A person’s creativity is his or her 'medicine' that quiets the mind and opens the heart. When we are genuinely connected to our own life-giving spring, we are not threatened by someone else’s creative ability. A desire to express and to connect emerges. This book represents each student's courageous expression and connection and is offered to readers in hopes that you, too, will find your inner spring of inspiration and will share your gift with the world. Sharing one’s gift is not ego-centric; it is a responsibility.”< Less

So I suppose that, in my way, I’m an inspired soul, too.< Less
