The Education of the Heart ~ Creating Sustainable Systems for Education and Learning & Honoring the Value of Creativity and the Imagination

I love Ken Robinson’s ideas on creativity and the education of the heart. Plus, he’s really funny, and I love laughing along with him.

“We have to rethink the fundamental principles on which we are educating our children” Robinson says. He advocates educating the whole being.

We cannot come to LIFE (Live In Full Expression)* and water the world with the fullest expression of who we are if we forfeit our value in creativity and the imagination.We must create sustainable systems, working our way from the inside out.

I believe when enough of us awaken the world within, we will create a groundswell with the capacity to radically shift the way we do everything in our world, including education.

Essential Quest-ions:

  • What can I do today to awaken my inner world and connect more deeply to the heart of my authentic creativity?

  • How can I root my learning in the values of creativity and imagination?

  • Where can I encourage a child or young adult to embrace his or her whole being?

  • What one action can I take to support heart-centered education?

Love and Blessings,

* Book 1 of the 3-book Cultivating Essence series, Awakening the World Within (available here: offers the first 39 of 90 momentum action pathways that are a MAP for coming to LIFE and Living in Full Expression alongside Essential Quest-ions like the ones above for SEEDS Journaling Practice (SEEDS = Soulful Exploration for the Essential Discovery of the Self).
