Education from within

     Educators are urged "to re-imagine the whole phenomena of education in a new light, wherein the understanding of consciousness and its transformation form the core of educational experience. Specifically, understanding curriculum as meditative inquiry is based on four key principles:
        • Human consciousness is in conflict.
        • Education reflects and perpetuates the characteristic features of human consciousness.
        • Meditative inquiry is an existential approach to comprehend and transform human consciousness.
        • Understanding curriculum as meditative inquiry is a way to provide self-transformative educational experiences to students and their teachers."                      Ashwani Kumar PhD
