Join the Conversation about Self-Study for Self-Realization, Wisdom, & Wellness!
CHALLENGE FOR WISDOM & WELLNESS
This podcast is a reading of a couple of excerpts from Part III of the Classic Wisdom for the Modern Human: A Self-Study Guide for Wellness (2019, Amazon) called Challenge. To know oneself deeply, to express oneself authentically, to be fully present for yourself, even in your pain, is a difficult path, but it is the way to a meaning-filled life of wisdom and wellness. It's especially challenging to develop courage through struggle in our culture of comfort.
Learning as Opportunity Mindset
What is Authentic Learning?
The American education system is built to discourage authentic learning for wisdom and wellness; it demonizes failure, and values competitive achievement to the detriment of personal uniqueness, balance and wholeness. That's why I quit teaching high school English, and now, as a student of mental health and yoga teacher, I bring you wisdom curriculum at Landscapes for Learning.
We could all do with a bit less schooling and a lot more wisdom.
Listen & learn!
Self-Study Guide for Self-Realization
In this podcast, I outline the five directions that make up the "Self-Study Wheel" found in my Classic Wisdom for the Modern Human: A Self Study Guide for Wellness, 2019, Amazon). It turns out to be a nice description of the elements in the book. Once you hear the overview, you'll want to get the tools and practices in the book and start observing yourself in more ways to self-actualize for wisdom and wellness! Share with parents, students, and teachers.
015: Future of Education: Learning Beyond Schooling
The Landscapes for Learning Mission is to help kids thrive and flourish using tools they already own within them to navigate a future that will require them to surf the waves of constant change. I hope to help dismantle traditional schooling and its damaging values and persuade teachers, schools, and students to focus their attention on better, more important ways of learning. My goal is to support them in this transformation with their humanity and love for shared humanity in tact.
