In this episode I speak with Miriam Mason Martineau from Next Step Integral, an organization “dedicated to the advancement of human consciousness and to the integral embodiment of our human potential”. In our conversation we inquire into some of the possible links between integral perspectives and the field of education. Is it possible to balance and make room for different worldviews? How can teachers honor both scientific and spiritual ways of seeing and being in the world? How to meet students where they are, and at the same time point to the next step in their personal and collective evolution? Miriam also explains what it can mean to educate the whole child from an integral point of view, and further, she points to some key themes that can help educators embody and teach implicitly the principles of integral education.
