Do children need wisdom education? Absolutely! Childhood is a critical time in our lives for laying the foundations upon which much of our life's work must be accomplished. Educating our children and providing for their developmental needs without harming or decreasing their natural wisdom, abilities and intuition is one of the most difficult and yet most pressing tasks for humanity to undertake if we are to bring about universal enlightenment within the next few generations and avoid all kinds of wars and social problems which are often caused by poor education practices in raising our children. Most people would agree that wisdom is important for educating the whole person, yet not all educational institutions take wisdom education seriously.
When choosing an educational path for children consider your options carefully.
For those at all inclined towards pursuing a university education, I would fully endorse doing so. From the webmaster's personal experience it has been a great blessing to have received a degree from a top tier university through studying many interesting (and some boring, but still somehow applicable) subjects and courses. I would recommend to those thinking of studying a bachelor's degree to apply for the best schools, professors and programs that you can find and get into. I would start with the top universities in the world such as Harvard and do your best to get the education there. If this is not feasible then work your way down the list of top universities in the world until you find one that best suits your needs and goals.
For graduate studies, other than the top universities there are also some graduate institutes and programs specifically designed for wisdom education.
Pacifica Graduate Institute
offers MA and PhD programs in depth psychology. They are home to the OPUS Archives and Research Center
which holds rare works on mythology and depth psychology from Joseph Campbell's personal collection.
Integral Institute http://www.integralinstitute.org/ Integral Institute offers post graduate certificate and MA programs on Integral Theory as developed by Ken Wilber. Wilber and his many high profile associates at Integral Institute have been developing Integral Theory to bring all theories back together to mutually inform and enrich human life. Integral theory can help people in any field to recognize and draw on the strengths of other fields to enhance performance and harmony in any environment.
