“Spiritual attraction is the force that can save humanity. Instead of being merely bound by material interests we need to feel this attraction to each other. These spiritual forces always exist around us, just as the cosmic rays exist in the universe. They are the Children! If our soul is far from the child, then we see only his small body, just as we see the star in the sky as a little shining point when it is really an immensity of heat and light. The art of spiritually approaching the child, from whom we are too far, is a secret that can establish human brotherhood; it is a divine art that will lead to the peace of mankind.”
Join TIES Faculty for an engaging, online dialogue around the spiritual aspects of the Montessori philosophy. TIES Academic Dean, Philip Snow Gang, weaves his own personal story as a keeper of Maria Montessori’s vision for education as revealed through first hand accountings.
Whether you are a seasoned Montessori guide, a student of her teachings, or a parent, we invite you to bring your voice to this dialogue centered on the essence of her vision.
