The Importance of Love and Surrender to Become a Miracle-Ready Educator
Join Marianne Williamson as she explores how the education system can expand not only a student's intellectual horizons but also their cultural, emotional, psychological and spiritual ones. In this inspiring interview, Marianne uncovers the importance and practice of bringing love into our schools and classrooms and how surrendering to this love opens us to miracle readiness. She also shares how to “light the fire” of students as reflected in this William Butler Yeats quote; "Education should not be the filling of a pail; it should be the lighting of a fire."
In this session, you’ll discover:
- The importance of love to heal and empower our schools and classrooms
- Practices to overcome the fear which prevents us from realizing our most empowered self
- How to surrender to love and prepare ourselves for miracle readiness
