Intro guest Brian Leaf shares about his new book/workbook, with contributions from the nation’s top yoga instructors, The Teacher Appears.
“Reading this book is like an hour of psychotherapy.”
“True yoga is coming in contact with yourself.”
“Use the headstand, but see past it.”
“Writing a book is like doing a Ph.D on yourself.”
In the featured guest spot, we welcome for the first time, Zoe Weil, President of the Institute for Humane Education (IHE) where she created the first graduate programs in humane education linking human rights, animal protection, and environmental preservation.
Books on this topic:
“When test scores are the holy grail of education, you won’t be focusing on critical thinking, creative thinking, systems thinking.”
“A strategic way to do the most good and the least harm is to ask yourself: What do I think is important? What am I good at? What do I love to do? Find where these meet.”
“Our goal is a humane educator in every school and every teacher a humane educator.”
