We Need Nature - and Each Other
April 1, 2020
Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.
-Rachel Carson

Heart-Centered Teaching Inspired by Nature is a book to encourage educators to use the gentle wisdom of nature to inspire and support children, but also themselves. The book is filled with suggestions for educators about ways to replenish their reserves of strength when life becomes especially challenging. Here’s a quote from the book:

“Giant Sequoia trees seem as if they should be sturdy enough to weather storms alone. In reality, though, even these magnificent specimens need help. An individual Sequoia growing by itself can be blown over in a strong wind. Only by interlocking roots with other trees can a Sequoia survive any kind of squall. There’s a lesson for all of us here: Sequoias fare best when they support each other as do we humans.

Heart-centered educators know how to ask for help and how to offer help. We also know the energy that is available to us when we are working for something that transcends our individual interests and concerns. At its core, heart-centered teaching is about paving the way for a world that will be a bit better than the one we inherited. John W. Whitehead said: ‘Children are the living messages we send to a time we will not see.’ It’s why we do what we do. We want the message we send to the future to be one of hope. It’s the message nature urges us to send.”
