Mindfulness in Education

I am interested in the endeavour of lifelong learning and the promise of open learning or the social experiment of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) because mindfulness is integral to a more civilized, compassionate and humane society in the context of a future dominated by cognitive automation.

Unless the individual’s mind, body and spirit are open to learning (the development of intuition or jñāna), there is no practice of Yoga (Union). Given the appropriate pedagogical tools for learning, in the absence of any instruction, the child will find one’s own creative inspiration to attain achievement (sańkalpa saḿsiddhiḥ).
