Changing Education Paradigms

Is Education Killing Creativity?

This animate was adapted from a talk given at the RSA by Sir Ken Robinson, world-renowned education and creativity expert and recipient of the RSA’s Benjamin Franklin award.

Assimilating new learning

According to Yoga Explained: A New Step-by-Step Approach to Understanding and Practicing Yoga  by Mira Mehta –

“The unfamiliar actions involved in the [yoga] postures need to be assimilated into the body’s ‘memory.’ This needs time and a period of stillness. Corpse Pose (Savasana) provides such a setting. Lying down quietly, without mental or physical distractions, makes body and mind receptive to the imprints of what has been learned.”

Mira Mehta is also co-author of Yoga: The Iyengar Way.

The Confidence Coalition

We all know the facts – the ways that a lack of self-confidence impacts the lives of women and girls.

I just discovered a new organization founded to reverse theses problems.

The Confidence Coalition and its member organizations are collectively bringing awareness to the issues affecting girls and women by encouraging them to stand up to peer pressure and media stereotypes, say no to risky behavior and abusive relationships, and put an end to relational aggression, such as bullying–on the playground and in the office.
