The Future of Children
July 19 - 22, 2018
Experience the new educational paradigm in ways that forge authentic inter-personal bonds, deepen intra-personal awareness, and connect with the outdoors. This work/playshop is designed to provide a seamless set of experiences that awaken new ways of teaching and learning.
Over the course of three days we explore how to create an invisible field of trust and authenticity. Instead of being driven by an agenda of bullet points we begin by discovering the largest context we can create together, specifically designed for this moment in space and time. This creative process is guided by the synergy of the participants and by a field of consciousness that resides beyond our individual identities. These guided experiences coupled with the courage and the sincere intention to manifest new possibilities lead us to new insights and initiatives.
Our collective awakening fortifies our efforts to transform and transmute the way we teach and learn. Together, we’ll create a group intention that is dedicated to all children, the ones who are no longer here, the children inside of ourselves and to all children on this planet as well as the ones that will follow.
This program is for anyone who cares about how we are raising the next generation, including parents and educators.
Phillip Moore was inspired by Richard Buckminster Fuller to create a new model for educating young children. After attending Bucky’s World Game in the summer of 1970, he joined a team of idealists in Oxford, Michigan who together built and sustained a new paradigm school, Upland Hills Farm School, that recently completed its 45th year. During his 42 years as Director of the School, Phil developed teams on the staff and board level to grow a learning community and synergetic collaboration between team members. In 2017, he released the book The Future of Children: Providing a Love-Based Education for Every Child. trimtab.in / uplandhills.org
