Deepening Cosmic Education
Leonard, Gerard
NAMTA Journal, v38 n1 p135-144 Win 2013
This article is a special blend of research, theory, and practice, with clear insight into the origins of Cosmic Education and cosmic task, while recalling memories of student explorations in botany, in particular, episodes from Mr. Leonard's teaching. Mr. Leonard speaks of a storytelling curriculum that eloquently puts perspective into dimensions of Cosmic Education as philosophy, human unity, heroes of history, invention, gratitude, connections with nature, and much more.
