Educating in the New Age

Prime Functions of the Educator in the New Age

According to D. Rozman, "Meditating with Children, page 10, originally taken from "Education in the New Age" by Lucis Trust, the prime functions of the educator in the new age are as follows:

  1. To train children's brains to respond intelligently to sensory impressions.

  2. To train the mind:

    1. to deal intelligently with information relayed by the brain

    2. to develop creative and imaginative thinking in response ot physical impulses, emotional reactions, and the mental world of the environment

    3. to hear promptings of the heart and unfold the spiritual self so it may emerge through meditation and contemplation of life and nature

  3. The educator must be able to get inside the world of the child and help the child get inside the inner world of others. We must do this with awareness of the heart.

At the class on Spiritual Giftedness, presented by Michael Piechowski, he was asked, "What do you recommend for teachers for identifying students with this potential for sipiritual giftedness or dealing with students who are spiritually gifted?"

He answered that we should offer acceptance and respect and definitely not make fun of it. That seems so obvious..
