Sir Ken Robinson…great speaker and thinker about the state of our education system and more importantly, about human nature and how to bring out the best through thinking differently about education.
I agree with his views that education is currently about producing workers for an industrial age economy… and that it should be much more. To become more creative requires that we think beyond our basic economic needs, we need to fully understand ourselves and what we have to offer. In my experience the steps to a broader education that leads to a better understanding of your self starts with learning tai chi… This gives you a better understanding of your body. The next step involved learning the tango, which helped me understand how to work in harmony with another person and to truly connect. The third step was learning tantric sex, which showed me how to give completely.
