VividLife Radio’s Ed and Deb Shapiro welcome authors Laura Weaver and Mark Wilding to discuss The 5 Dimensions of Engaged Teaching, integrating heart with mind, social and emotional learning with academics, and inner life with outer life.
Laura Weaver and Mark Wilding are the co-authors of a new collaborative book: The 5 Dimensions of Engaged Teaching and the Co-Directors of the PassageWorks Institute. This is a critical time in the field of education—in this high stakes testing era, teachers are leaving the field in record numbers and students are becoming increasingly disengaged. It is time to honor and engage the wisdom and experience of educators, and to offer practical support to teachers and schools. The Engaged Teaching approach integrates heart with mind, social and emotional learning with academics, and inner life with outer life — all in service of improving academic outcomes, and fostering meaningful, effective, and safe schools for all students
As the great Zen master Alan Watts said: “We all need to go out of our minds at least once a day!” Going Out Of Your Mind with Ed and Deb Shapiro is a chance for you to drop your analyzing and intellectual mind and come into the immediate experience of present awakening. We are irreverent spiritual teachers and don’t take ourselves too seriously so our discussion show has a great sense of humor while also exploring in depth what it means to live with integrity, awareness, kindness, compassion, and humility.
