We must transcend and heal the mechanical worldview and allow our children to inherit a new humanity.
Our Holistic Approach
All of life is interconnected, so is the curriculum within our programs.
As parents and educators, we must first acknowledge that children are organisms, not mechanisms. Our unique inter-disciplinary student projects and Family Retreats emphasize holistic learning values such as understanding our place and potential within the universe, physical health and nutrition, energetic health and mindfulness, and connection to the natural world and dynamic communities.
Empowering children (and families!) to develop their authentic passions, purpose, and life path requires a new approach to teaching and learning. We believe the role of the teacher should move far beyond that of mere transmission and transaction.
We are committed to a transformational approach, believing firmly that:
"True learning cannot be quantified, for the true nature of education implies a shift in consciousness, a deeper connection to self, others, and the Universe."
- Alys Robinson
Integration of learning models and theories based on cutting-edge quantum physics, neuroscience, child development, and basic human ethics have inspired the evolution of our energy-driven, student-centered program. We are committed to methodologies that honor the profound significance of childhood with integrity and a curriculum designed with an understanding of children’s natural rhythms, biology, and humanity.
Our holistic, project-based pedagogy is flexible and inspired by revolutionary thinkers such as Dr. Amit Goswami, Rudolf Steiner, Alan Watts, Maria Montessori, Sri Krishnamurti, Ram Dass, and Sir Ken Robinson. Instruction is not disconnected and isolated, driven by tests, politics, nor corporate curriculum; it is mindfully driven by heart, authenticity, and pure joy.
“Our highest endeavor must be to develop free human beings who are able of themselves to impart purpose and direction to their lives. The need for imagination, a sense of truth, and a feeling of responsibility—these three forces are the very nerve of education.”
