The power of education is in its potential transformative effects on individual.
Many writers suggest that the prime task of the teachers is to awaken joy and wonderment through creative expression and in the quest for understanding.
If education is to be a liberating experience then its central concern must be on the holistic nature of teachers and students creating and nurturing meaningful relational connections with self, others, place and their worlds. This transcends the physical, intellectual, and social and engages the spiritual—the spirit and soul of teachers and students. Teachers are instrumental in enabling students to experience such engagement.
This paper explores teachers and the curriculum, relaitonal connectedness, and what it means to be a spirit-aware teacher teaching for spirit-aware learners. Given these comments, some reflections are made on the preparation of teachers.
