Integrative Learning and Action

A Call to Wholeness

Series:

Susan M. Awbrey, Diana Dana, Vachel W. Miller and Phyllis Robinson

The quest for wholeness is an emerging movement in education and in organizations. Integrative Learning and Action is a call to wholeness by poets, organizational theorists, scientists, lawyers, educators, philosophers, administrators, and contemplatives. In diverse ways the essays speak to an emerging desire for a different world – for different ways of learning, knowing, and being that draw upon the full spectrum of our cognitive, aesthetic, emotional, spiritual, and kinesthetic intelligences in order to create a wiser, more sustainable, and collaborative global society. The essays challenge us to chart a new integrative course for the future, to expand our thinking, and to re-enlist our hearts in the life-long journey of learning and living, and will be valuable to all who are engaged in the transformation occurring in education and the workplace.
