Deschool Yourself: 4 Reasons to Change the Way We View Education

Deschool Yourself: 4 Reasons to Change the Way We View Education | The Centaur Project | Scoop.it

The way in which we view education has a lot to do with our past; how we grew up, societal influences, and the way we were schooled ourselves. It is the legacy that we pass on to our children. Tragically, the current way our education system is engineered, it appears our children seem doomed to be unsuccessful.

Equine Therapy: Learning Empathy from a Horse

Equine Therapy: Learning Empathy from a Horse | The Centaur Project | Scoop.it

While those in the world of mindfulness may be well aware, that empathy toward others is a recipe for a feeling of well being within oneself, for many people, just how to increase a sense of empathy can be a challenging subject.

 

This, of course is complicated when many people struggle with feeling empathetic toward others. To be sure, when empathy isn’t expressed, it isn’t gained either. So if this is the case, how does one go about increasing empathy? And, further, is it possible that animals, namely horses, can help us to feel more empathetic toward one another?
