How might education liberate teachers and learners so that they might become catalysts for the new human?

▶︎ Montessori’s life focus of a universal transformation of humanity
▶︎ How she came to develop presentations for children over 6
▶︎ Montessori's experience and observation of cosmic consciousness from an Eastern perspective
▶︎ How India came to be a nesting place for her wisdom to flourish
THIS WEBINAR IS IDEAL FOR YOU IF

▶︎ You want a unique view of how Dr. Montessori evolved her work.
▶︎ You want to enrich your own understanding of her mission of educating for right-action and love.
"Dr. Gang has a wealth of knowledge, experience, and stories that span decades. He refers to various contemporaries of Dr. Montessori, Montessori's family members (whom he got to know), folks who worked with and learned from Dr. Montessori herself, and also current scientists and researchers. Dr. Gang makes connections between Maria Montessori's work and modern scientific theories, including the Gaia hypothesis, autopoiesis, and Earth system science. If, in today's modern world, we aspire to educate "for right action and love," then Dr. Phil Gang can be our guide."
