“The Emotional Life of BECOMING a Teacher: The Getting and Giving of Wisdom,” Bruce Novak

A major source of disturbance in teachers’ emotions can be located in the general devaluation of our profession in contemporary culture. What in most cultures through time has been a very high personal and spiritual calling, a life-renewing ministry, is now mostly seen as an undesirable and servile job, at the beck and call of markets and administrators of various kinds. In this session you will experience in microcosm a course devised to help people tap both into their own INNER teacher—recollecting the transformative wisdom each one of us has acquired that allows us to be imaginative sources of transformative life to others—and into the enormous human power that can be discovered in the tradition of teaching, which is synonymous with the traditions of wisdom.
