Education and the Soul. Toward a Spiritual Curriculum.
Miller, John P.
This book addresses how the soul can be nourished in educational settings, exploring the nature of the soul and offering teaching/learning approaches that can be used to nurture the development of students' souls. The book also examines how institutions such as schools have souls and what can be done to care for a school's spiritual life. After a foreword, "The Soul as Educator" (Thomas Moore), Part 1, "Exploring Soul," presents the first three chapters: (1) "Education and the Soul," (2) "Conceptions of the Soul," and (3) "Love and Work." Part 2, "Nurturing Soul," includes chapters 4-9: (4) "Curriculum for the Inner Life," (5) "Arts Education and the Soul," (6) "Earth and the Soul," (7) "The Soulful School," (8) "The Soulful Teacher," and (9) "Change and the Soul."
